Chef Grayson shares some of his favorite foods with you

The fun part about raw foods is that the kids can make it!  Two of Grayson's favorite foods are salads with home made dressings and veggie wraps made with collard greens as the wraps.

This cool mint salad is made with cucumbers (which are soothing natural gut healers), tomatoes, fresh mint and parsley (natural cleanser), lemon (alkalizes the blood) and olive oil is so refreshing.  I also like to add a sprouted grain, in this case we chose quinoa.  As Grayson says, "Easy peasy lemon squeezy!"

For the wraps, you can essentially fill them with anything!  We chose celery, cucumber, carrots, red cabbage, purple onion and fresh basil.  All you do is cut a large collard green leaf in half, removing the stem, line the inside of the wrap half with a dressing or sauce of choice, we used our raw GFCF ranch dressing (recipe in an earlier post) then lay sliced veggies and herbs along the center of the collard green, with the curved side at the bottom, take that curved edge and pull it slightly up over the veggies and start rolling it from one side until it looks like like a mini burrito.
