A tasty Topping of Gradded apple and in a cherry cream over a pecan coconut crust.

The first thing you need to do is blend the cherry cream. This is a peace of cake! no pun intended.
Put about 1 cup of water in your blender (vitamix or blendtech) and add:
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbs Vanilla Flavoring
1/2 cup dried cherries and blend on high speed to a smooth cream. It should be just a little softer than peanut butter. If it is to thick you can add a little water, if to runny then add more cherries or dried turkish apricots. Now pour it into a mixing bowl and add 2 apples shreaded. You can use a food proccessor to get that done quicly.

Now make your base.
Put into the food processor with the "S" blade:
1 1/2 cups pecan
1 1/2 cups dried coconut threads
1 cup dried turkish apricots
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Blend it till it gets sticky start to clump together. When you can squeese it in you hand and it hodls its shape it is ready. Now take it out and press it into a pie pan. Line the pan with a pice of paper so you can dump it out when it is ready.

To put it all together:
Once you press the base into your lie pan, place a serving plate or cake plat over the top of the pie pan, face down. Then flip the whole thing over so the base falls out of the pie pan and onto the plate. Remove the pie pan and peel off the paper from the base. Now take you cherry apple mixture and spread it on the top. You can garnish with nuts, raisins, goji berries or even a nut or coconut cream

Raw Chef Dan's Tip Of The Month 

"Get off your track "

Get out, step off, weave off your track, ride a bus instead of driving, take a different route home, eat a fruit you have never tasted before, talk to people, go to a museum, read a book on a topic you have a secret interests in.
Do something you have never done and tomorrow do something else.
There is a fine line between a comfort zone and a rut --- we just call them by different names. The only time we discover new interest and a new passion is when we are doing something we had never done before. Living ---means --- to live.
So Live it up, open your eyes, small all the flowers not just the ones you like!!!!!!


This is what just some of what diners have had to say about their experience.

  • “This may be the best meal I have ever had in my life”
  • “I am a huge fan of Chef Dan’s food and this still blew me away. I’ve never had anything like this ever.”
  • “I am speechless”
    “This could make someone go completely raw”
  • “This is my first Raw Food Meal and I didn’t expect anything like this. Far, far beyond anything I could have imagined. WOW”
  • Wonderful, it really was amazing!! Moments like these remind us of what a magical trip life is: having an out of this world dinner prepared by THE CHEF with friends as amazing as you... What an evening. We enjoyed every second of it. Dan, thanks for your talent, Arlene doesn't exaggerate when she says you are the best raw chef!! Thank you everyone for such a magical, unforgettable soirée.

News On The Forefront
Superfoods co brings super mushrooms

Cordyceps Benefits

Nowadays Cordyceps Mushroom is something new, special, and hardly familiar to the Western world. Scientists have not managed to study it properly for the time being. The greatest source of information about Cordyceps is its motherland – China, where researchers have already been working for some time on the unclosing the secrets and mysteries of the fungus.

The further statements about health benefits of the mushroom are the results of the numerous Chinese trials of Cordyceps; therefore, they are at first hand.

Enhancing and strengthening of the immune system. Cordyceps is supposed to increase the number of the Natural Killer Cells, which are responsible for the body defense against viruses and bacteria. Some trials show that the fungus works effectively in the leukemia stricken individuals.

Improving sexual function in men and increasing libido by stimulating the production of sex hormones. Cordyceps may also be a means for fighting female infertility.

Building muscles and improving physical performance. Those Chinese athletes, who use Cordyceps, tend to show better results than the other sportsmen.

Providing anti-aging and fatigue reducing effects. The fungus works as an antioxidant and increases cellular formation, especially in the elderly patients. It also promotes more restful sleep, soothes the nervous system, and reduces anxiety, thus working as a sedative.

Improving the respiratory function. Cordyceps shows good results in fighting against cough, chronic bronchitis and asthma, since it relaxes bronchial walls and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Enhancing cellular oxygen uptake. This benefits all the body systems, giving them more energy and vitality.

Benefiting vascular system by improving circulation, regulating blood pressure, and strengthening the heart muscle.

Protecting liver and kidneys. Cordyceps improves blood flow to these organs (as well as to the others), which results in their better activity and ability to fight the diseases, including Hepatitis and chronic kidney disease.

Some people may think of the fungi as of something disgusting and ugly. However, the mushrooms do not look so when in a tablet or a capsule. Moreover, Cordyceps will definitely become even attractive to those, who have no trust in the pharmaceutical drugs any more. 2-4 grams (some people consume even up to 9 grams) of the mushrooms per day – it is nor an exorbitant price for the health improvement, which may become obvious as soon as in 1-2 months.

Cordyceps is said to be safe and has no side effects. However, pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as children are not recommended to use it, since no studies have been conducted in such persons.

Luckily, time, progress, and the growing demands of the modern society make the scientists keep on working on the unsolved problems and open questions of today. That gives us hopes that soon Cordyceps will become an open book easy to read and understand for all the people.

What's the Scoop on Organic Pet Food?

One of OCA's Web Forum users posted the following topic: "I don't know if this is the right place to post, but my husband and I ATTEMPT to eat an organic diet... I want our husky to eat just as healthily. Before coming to the States, it was as easy to order online and lo and behold CERTIFIED organic dog food appeared on the door step. I've had no end of bother obtaining good certified organic feed for my dog... any ideas or help out there?"


OCA Response: Buying certified "USDA Organic" pet food is definitely a smart consumer choice. Conventional pet food contains everything from animals put down at animal shelters to slaughterhouse waste (including spinal columns and potentially diseased tissue). Conventional pet food can also legally contain fillers like newspaper and feathers. Organic pet foods have much higher quality. Because of a successful lawsuit filed against the USDA by the OCA and Dr. Bronner's relating to body care and other non-food agricultural products, pet food manufacturers cannot display the "USDA Organic" seal unless their products meet the same strict standards as organic food for humans. If you do not see the "USDA Organic" seal, you need to read the product ingredient label carefully to determine which of the ingredients are actually organic.

Alert of the Month:
USDA To Deregulate Genetically Engineered Crops

he U.S. Department of Agriculture is looking to fast-track the deregulation of Genetically Engineered (GE) corn for ethanol production, despite growing evidence that GE crops are dangerous for human health and the environment. GE crops have been forced on consumers without mandatory labeling or adequate assessment of negative human health and environmental impacts. A recent study by the Austrian government even demonstrated how a type of GE corn causes infertility in lab rats. The current industrialized processes of creating biofuels, like ethanol, are inherently unsustainable and actually cause more total greenhouse gases and use more petroleum than gasoline.
