  • The Director's Cut

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 97 -

    There's a raw juice movement sweeping the nation, as is seems to do from time to time. I remember my family briefly going through a similar craze when I was young. It seems to be a binge and purge business, there one minute, gone the next. This goes a long way toward explaining the impressive selection of juicers to be found in many suburbian rummage sale block parties. Well, color me a bandwagoner, I'm hooked. For how long it will last, no one knows. Many folks in the raw food community are onboard already, such as Phillip, Heidi, and Kris, to name just a few. Last week I wrote about my favorite fresh juice, or more precisely, about its color. This week we're showing how to make it. Without further ado, we give you‚ "The Director's Cut."moreless
  • Valentine's Day pt II

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 96 -

    This Valentine's day, we've gone buck-rogers with a racy show about aphrodisiacs! For the occasion we've concocted a pulse-pounding chocolate sauce chock-full of sensuous spices like maca, cayenne, and cinnamon to get you in the mood for love. Treat your sweetie, (or yourself!) and use it to top some of our fabulous nearly raw vegan ice cream from episode #0055, or if you live in New York, grab some awesome raw vegan ice cream from Pure Food and Wine.

  • Valentine's Day

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 95 -

    This episode, we take you on a quick and dirty (and occasionally bloody) history of Valentine's Day. The story of this holiday and its patron saint is still a bit of a mystery. From Roman pagan festivals (Lupercalia), to saintly love letters sent from the joint, the truth behind the origins of Saint Valentine's Day continue to illude.moreless
  • Year Of The Rat

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 94 -

    Happy Lunar New Year! February 7, 2008 begins the year of the Rat, the first year of the Chinese zodiac, a time of activity and renewal. Today we'll take you on a quick tour of Lunar New Year basics, factoids, and food traditions. It is said that this is a good year to make a fresh start, and after the year we've had, we couldn't agree more! As uncertified joy practitioners, we here at Freshtopia.net love a good reason to celebrate and eat some delicious food. So why not wear a little red, do a spot of cleaning (a lunar new year tradition), bring some fresh blossoms into your home and enjoy some healthy, auspicious fruits and vegetables? In addition to tossing a little green, Tanja put together a wonderful, earthy, spicy parsnip noodle salad for this episode.moreless

  • #0082 - Green Smoothie 2.0

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 81 -

    Why is it that when raw-food health gurus go on national television, talking about all the wonderful soups, rich entrees, and magical desserts you can have on a raw food diet, so often they end up handing over to the excited and anticipating host a glass full of green glop? The green smoothie; almost invariably it's met with a nervous stare, and followed promptly by an ick face upon tasting. We could make Cacao Pistachio Florentine, Portobello Burgers, or Curried Chocolate Pudding, but instead, in a moment of mindless passion, we make green smoothies. I say we because we at Freshtopia too have made this mistake. Check out first Green Smoothie episode here, and check out our old-timey stylings.moreless
  • #0081 - Macadamia-Stuffed Figs

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 80 -

    Fresh, ripe figs are the best. Sensuous, decadent and so delicious, it almost seems wrong . So good, in fact, that it's perhaps a little crazy to do anything to them except enjoy their sweet flavorful perfection. However, there are those times when madness and the presence of figs in your life intersect. Why not try stuffing your figs with rich, creamy macadamia filling with a burst of bright lemony flavor, and topping them with crunchy pecans and a drizzle of golden honey?moreless
  • #0080 - Sparkle Motion

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 79 -

    Never doubt our commitment to sparkle motion! Our house had a problem; we all loved sparkling water, but hated the wasteful plastic packaging and crazy cost. Americans drink more than 55 billion liters of soda and seltzer every year, which means over 3 billion cubic feet of packaging ends up in recycling facilities or worse, landfills! We were determined not to be those consumers any more. After doing some research, Barb determined that the answer to our sparkling dreams was a home carbonating unit with reusable bottles‚ and also that there's some sort of inexplicable connection between sparkling water and yachts.moreless
  • #0079 - Super Candy!

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 78 -

    Living a fresh and healthy lifestyle? Missing things like decent candy bar? Here's a recipe that will make you forget all about those high-fructose corn syrup-laden bars in their landfill-destined plastic packaging. We've taken candy to a whole other place with the addition of powerful superfoods like maca, he shou wu, and raw chocolate. It's SuperCandy! These bars will not only satisfy the naughtiest sweet tooth, they'll give you an enduring lift that old-school candy can't match!moreless
  • #0078 - Holy Mole

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 77 -

    Today's recipe is absolutely divine! We're making Mexican mole, fresh-style! In this rich yet nutritious sauce, the delicious heat of chilies and the rich flavor of chocolate caper across the palate. Treat yourself to a dish that's fit for Aztec royalty, and so sexy, you won't believe that it was invented by nuns! Whatever its origin, be sure to give this delicious, raw vegan twist on a perennial favorite a try.moreless
  • #0075 - BBQ!

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 76 -

    It could be the heat, or perhaps I'm having a blonde moment. Maybe I'm just dizzy with summer excitement, but I'm attempting to recreate, fresh-style, a dish that is quite possibly the opposite of raw vegan uncookery. I'm talking about Barbeque! It's so crazy it just might work, or is it just a delicious recipe and a great excuse for some bizarre factoids and possibly dismally inaccurate history?moreless
  • #0074 - The Great Tomato Caper ptIII

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 75 -

    Oh man. All I wanted was to make home-grown organic sun-dried tomatoes. We just didn't know what we were in for. This tomato caper business is making us all a little crazy. Growing your own tomatoes simply isn't for the faint of heart. We've had casualties, replacements, funerals and a rather overactive zucchini plant. Here's Barb and me trying our best to talk about the garden without devolving into complete idiocy. Bonus garden tip! If you eat yogurt, or know someone who does, we've also got a great use for those empty cups. Reuse rocks!moreless
  • #0073 - Golden Gazpacho

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 74 -

    We're busting you into the Fort Knox of flavor! With summer's bounty rolling in on all sides, I wanted to do an easy rendition of a summer staple with a twist. You may have had gazpacho before, but did it shine? The many heirloom and unusual varieties of ingredients, like lemon cucumbers and tomatoes, are perfect for a novel color theme. It's time for gazpacho with bling!moreless
  • #0072 - LOL Cats, LOL Codes, LOL Cures

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 73 -

    Today I can't concentrate, because the BOT house is under a massive attack by six-legged flying invaders. So, in order to go to a happy place, I'm hitting the couch to talk about cats. Lolcats may be so two months ago, but I'm not quite sick of it yet, and delightful new permutations continue to arise, to distract me from the problem with my slightly obese calico, Bebel.moreless
  • #0071 - Peaches and Poppyseeds

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 72 -

    I'm delving into an unfortunate part of my food history here: My brief love affair with store-bought poppy seed dressing. Maybe I just fell for the wrong one, but the romance came to an abrupt end when I came to my senses and read the label. Hydrogenated soybean oil? No thanks.moreless
  • #0070 - South of the Border Tomatillo Rawvioli

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 71 -

    We're back in the kitchen again, turning up the heat on raw foods with South of the Border Tomatillo Rawvioli! I wanted to do a dish that showcased the delightful flavor of tomatillos, the husky green cousin of the tomato. The resulting creation is a lively celebration of Mexican-inspired flavor, beauty and nutrition that's the perfect antidote to the summertime dinner blahs! Why sift through yet another boring pile of the same old greens, or clog your arteries with yet another helping of mayo-drenched macaroni salad, when you could be enjoying a satisfying plate of fresh tomatillo sauce with light cucumber rawvioli filled with rich, spicy cashew filling?moreless
  • #0069 - Watermelon Grrrranitas!

    Full Episode

    S 2009 : Ep 70 -

    Last weekend while we were at Get Tough or Die Farms, we were introduced to a new summer dessert. In Sacramento, the mid-day temperature can get brutal by this time of year, and one day while we were all sitting outside sweltering, Melissa brought out a round of Watermelon Granitas for all of us. I was wowed, had two, and hinted for Tanja to use her familial leverage to get the scoop on the dish. This is surprisingly easy for a dessert that packs such a potent refreshment quotient, and with so little sweetener needed, it's shockingly guilt-free as well.moreless

    We spent the weekend at the Get Tough or Die Farm. AKA: Tanja's mother's house. When neighborhood cats and children aren't disappearing in the "Tomato Triangle," they are dodging the assault of the trained attack rabbits, and let us not even mention the sunflowers.moreless

    S 2009 : Ep 68 -

    Believe us when we say, no chickens were hurt in the making of this episode. Our friends Raven, Baxter and Adesina have made the leap from avid backyard gardeners, to avid backyard chicken enthusiasts! Though their motivation for getting into the chicken-caper was pretty solidly egg-based, the love they have for their new feathered friends is readily apparent.moreless
