About Addicted to Veggies



Who is Addicted to Veggies?
Before there was Addicted to Veggies there was just me – Sarahfaé.
A girl with food allergies, a horrible relationship with her body, an even worse relationship with food --frantically searching for a way to “get better”.
My first initial discovery of raw food was a puzzling one, being that I had no idea what it really was or what it actually meant to “eat raw food”. 
But I was desperate to get healthy, to find lost energy, and to fall in love with food.
I knew I had to jump in head first, so I did. Oh boy did I ever.
From that point forward (over 3 years ago now) I discovered so much more about myself. Things I never thought existed.
What’s the best part about this hullabaloo?
I get to share my love of food with you!
To me, that’s the most important moral of this story.
I can’t help it, I’m a giver.

What is Addicted to Veggies today?
Above all, Addicted to Veggies is a recipe website; a place to encourage you (whoever you are) to take pride in making yummy food from scratch, to try new things in exciting new ways.

Really? 
Raw Food?
If you think that Raw Food means crunchy, cold, boring fruit and vegetables – then you’ve come to the right place to get proven wrong.
A lot of the Recipes you’ll find on AtV come with warming directions for the dehydrator and the oven. I mean, who wants to eat cold food all of the time? I certainly don’t want to.

AtV is not about “don’t eat this” and “don’t eat that”

But you don’t want to eat Raw Vegan Food?
That's okay! 
Addicted to Veggies is here to show you a new method of preparing fruit and vegetables:
If you want to add non-raw products to an AtV recipe then do it!
I’m not a bossy pants, and I love the idea of recipes being a canvass to add your own personal flair and flavor to.
I’m not the raw food police. No siree.
I’m just a gal who loves to eat, and wants nothing more than to share this with as many people as I can.

New to Addicted to Veggies?
I’m doing more and more “Staple Recipes” these days.
What’s a Staple Recipe?
Imagine opening your refrigerator, k?
Look inside...
Do you see all of those condiments that most people have; eggs, dairy, cream, cheese, butter, sweetener, etc.
Those are the ingredients that go into a LOT of different types of foods, right? 
Addicted to Veggies has it’s own version of those Staples! 
You can find an expanding list of these Staples (complete with links to the full recipes) by going over here:

Last but not least…
I always want to hear from you. Whether it’s feedback, questions, personal stories, recipe inspirations, or whatever else may be on your mind. So get in touch with me!

  6. i was about to leave your blog with the standard thought of "that was really cool. i enjoyed browsing through that. that girl's got it going on.... *click*", when i suddenly wondered how often people actually get told how much others like their work.

    so here i am. by the comments, it seems apparent that there is no shortage of happy and impressed followers, which is great, but as someone who was about to do the typical anonymous 'browse and run' thing that is so easy to do now in our increasingly faceless society... someone who then decided to fly in the face of her interwebs-browsing MO, i thought it could be nice for you (and anyone out there in the ether reading this) to think about all the people who DON'T leave a comment on your deliciously colourful, informative, charming blog, even if they really like it.

    so, without sounding totally didactic and "above the unwashed masses", i'd like to give you a hearty cheer and encourage you to consider how many people around the world you've made smile today.

    gives you a little tummy-glow, doesn't it? :)

    keep up the lovely blog - i shall be passing your details on to several vegan and vego friends, and adapting many of your staples into my limited 'fun-free' diet.

  10. Well done! I've just vanquished wheat from my sloppy, but mostly, vegan diet and saw your pumpkin/flaxseed cracker recipe on Raw Pleasure and thought to visit. I'll be back and will bring my raw vegan sister with me! Thank you so much for sharing.

  11. I have tried a few of your recipes and LOVE them! Thank you so much for being creative and posting it for all to enjoy.
    I have had a hard time finding recipes though. I was just wanting to ask if you could add a link on the top that has a list of all your recipes (categorized would be great but even just alphabetical). Again thank you!

    I have been concentrating on my diet and health over the past few weeks in my meditations, and a new friend sent me one of your recipes.

    As I'm only now looking at the "skin" of your blog, I want to stop and tell you how much I love the warm and personal tone of your site. I like you already, and I feel at home. :)

    You are bookmarked in my browser and my heart. Thank you so much...

  15. Dear Sarahfaé,
    Thank you for your blog!
    I'm new on the raw food path (almost a year now and about 50% raw these days) and your recipes helped me tremendously. I already tried (succesfully) your sour cream, creamy salads and tarts. You make it so easy for the readers and the result is always very tasty. My not-so-raw-husband appreciates them too!

    So thanks again for sharing your love for raw food with us,
    Daniela

  16. My wife has been a a crazy dieter for years. So,when she went vegan a year ago I said,to myself " if she does this for a year then I will step in and give it a try". Here I am addicted to your blog one year later and developing a "staples pantry" so that she and I can teach our kids that healthy food is yummy and fun. Thank you for sharing your passion.
