    Well, this meal raw sunday desert tart looks amazing good. However, it is also amazingly filled with fat. The fat content per serving must be 50% or higher??? Just because something is raw doesn't mean it is necessarily healthier. Research has shown that ALL oils cause heart disease. True, the tropical oils (i.e. coconut, olive, etc) don't raise the blood LDL as much as saturated fats/oils. For that reason many have erroneously concluded that tropical oils are healthy oils. This couldn't be further from the truth. Based on the research of Lawrence Rudder with that African Green Monkeys, showing that tropical mono and poly unsaturated oils do equal damage to the arteries, as well as the well known brachial artery tourniquet test, we have thoroughly concluded that ALL oils cause plaque buildup and should be avoided entirely. This goes for the poly unsaturated oils contained in ALL nuts. Thus, like ALL oils, nuts are bad.

    I have been a vegan for several years now. I frequently see vegan, and even raw diets that are equally as unhealthy as fully cooked non-vegan diets. Mainly due to the fats and oils included in the diets. Not only is this diet incorrect, it perpetuates the myth that there are oils out there that are good for you and make you healthy. Again, this is absolutely not true.

    I would love to see a raw meal prepared that does not include the insane amounts of fats that were added to this meal. Furthermore, I would love to see one with NO fats and oils.

    Having said that, I love your website and enjoy it lots.

    Don, I agree in part. The recipe is really great tasting, and it is a dessert. But your right, that many raw and even vegan recipes are a bit heavy. I eat a lot of whole foods and add in the heavy nut recipes only as a treat.

    We happy you like the site, this take a lot of work and we hope to continue to improve it as we go. We love feed back, good or bad. So thank you.
