If the recipes look like they take a lot of time, don't be fooled. It's nothing compared to cooking (I don't have time for it). Our most delicious meals are usually the fresh produce from the backyard or the recent trip to the farmer's market. Fruit is nature's fast food, and in this day and age we all want fast food. As a parent, fruit is the easiest, most popular whole food to feed the kids. Some of our recipes take this simple approach and dress up the whole foods just a bit. (See "Sapote with Lime," "Olga's Tomatoes," "Heather's Scrumptious Purple Cabbage Delight.") Other recipes are super easy to blend. Then, after you enjoy your drink, cleanup is quick and easy. Everything just rinses. (See "Super Power Smoothies," "Hot Chocolate," all the soups, and "Chocolate Mouse Pie.") However, the more time-consuming recipes lend variation and culinary delight. (See "June's Favorite Daiquiris," "Pesto Pizza," and "Chocolate--Raw!") Our staples we tend to make in bulk, which at our home, still seem to go pretty quickly. (See the cereals and "Almond Mylk," "Raw Crackers," the dressing for the "Kid's Salad," "Chocolate Chip Cookies," and "Coconut Brownie Balls.")
