Lunchbox Cuisine The Raw Food Way

A raw food lunch, made with nothing but fresh, healthy fruits and veggies, delivers a nutritional wallop without adding unnecessary calories, additives, or unhealthy ingredients.  You won’t be skimping on flavor, either.  Raw food is delicious when it’s prepared well.

And as you’ll see in a moment, preparing a raw food lunch is easy as pie.

Raw Food Pizza Sandwich
How about pizza?

One of my personal lunchbox favorites that’s always a hit with adults and the schoolyard set is my raw food Pizza Sandwich recipe.  This sandwich boasts the familiar flavors of a garden pizza, without the heaviness of bread and cheese.  And there’s plenty of crunch thanks to the lettuce leaves that encase the flavors of Italy:  zesty Marinara Sauce, sweet onions, cremini mushrooms, and black olives.  Click here for the Pizza Sandwich recipe.

If you mix up a batch of raw food marinara sauce the night before, my Raw Food Pizza Sandwich is quick and easy to pull together in the morning.

That can help put the ‘good’ back in ‘good morning’ and give you a few extra minutes to relax, reflect, and plan your day.

That’s it for now.  See you in September for more EZ raw food recipes, tips, and fun.

Hi Jenny! Firstly, just wanted to say - thank you!!! I discovered your youtube videos while searching for an online tutorial for making almond milk - you are such a fantastic teacher, superior than many other raw food cooks I’ve come across in my research to begin my raw food journey. Your explanations and commentary are so clear and helpful!

Secondly, I see that on your page for recommended appliances, you list an 11-cup cuisinart food processor - what size would you recommend for a household of 2 people that already has a mini food processor but would like to expand to start making some nut pates, sauces and dessert materials? would a 7-cup be sufficient / is there a specific model of cuisinart you would recommend? would very much appreciate your guidance/advice! thank you!

Hi Rachel,
I personally have a 14-cup food processor, and that’s my favorite size because I can do anything in it, no matter for 2 people or 6. For 2 people, I’d definitely recommend the 11-cup if you don’t want to get the 14. All of Cuisinart’s models are great—a basic one should be fine! Best of luck, and thanks so much for your comment.

Hi Jenny-

I’ve recently started on the raw food journey after struggling for years with a milk and wheat allergy. Your website has been a blessing in helping me make quick and easy recipes. I’ve started making recipes using the limited appliences I have (an inexpensive blender) and was wondering if you could recommend an applience that can both chop veggies, make sauces and grind nuts into butters.  Thanks so much for your help!!

Hi Jenny

I have been reading about food combining and wonder what your opinion is on that Thanks Linda

Hi Lori,

A blender (even an inexpensive one) is the right appliance for blending smooth mixtures such as smoothies and sauces.

A food processor (Cuisinart or the more affordable Hamilton Beach—see the Raw Gear tab for details) is the right appliance for chopping and grinding nuts to butters). I recommend the Cuisinart.


I think that fruits and juices are generally easiest to digest on an empty stomach. Also not combining multiple fats at once (nuts plus avocados plus oil) helps digestion. But experiences vary from person to person.

Hi Jenny.
I have recently started to follow a raw food diet, to detox my body. Your web site and your recipes have been a blessing. I didn’t know how to start or what to do. I downloaded your gift e-book and I already made the zucchini pasta with Marinara sauce. It was very good, My husband even liked it.

I am so grateful that I found you.

God bless you for all the good you are doing for people.
