    That looks really tasty!
    Im thinking about my parents at home making actual scrambled eggs and then eating it on a bed of spinach plus some – amusing thought and it would never happen!
    No no expo for this little birdy – live in Australia so i really dont think ill make it in time! Have fun!

  2. Shannadew says:

    I have my laptop in the kitchen all the time! It dies in like 5 mins so I have to “cook” fast!

  3. Destiny says:

    Looks good. Looks more like lunch. I wake up and crave green and purple smoothies. Hard to break away from that. You guys are so neat. Wish you were on my side of the world. We have a small but might vegan, raw world here in South Carolina!

  4. Brendon says:

    Sounds delicious!
    Nah, I won’t be coming. I live in Sydney, Australia.

  5. Nathalie says:


    Wow, what an awesome looking, and I bet tasty breakfast!

    You both rock and are so alive within life… love it!

    This here is another ozzie, so will be enjoying life over this side. Spring is just around the corner and my fav. flowers for their perfume qualities are blossoming… Wattle & Jasmine.

    Have fun in Ft Bragg – that name is slightly amusing to me!
    Is Ft short for foot??

  6. Page says:

    I have ordered the book and have already looked at the e version. Many recipes that I can’t wait to try.
    I’m on the east coast, South Carolina, watching the hurricane roll on by (at least I hope so), so I won’t be at Ft. Bragg. Ya’ll have fun!

  7. Tara Burner says:

    Looks gooooood
    and I have my laptop in kitchen (actually have it everywhere I go! lol)
    and no sadly won’t be in Ft Bragg 🙁

  8. enzymeluv says:

    You two are the upbeat sunshine of the raw food scene… thanks for sharing!

  9. Christine Sakaguchi says:

    Awww… I wish I were able to be in Fort Bragg. I used to hang out in that area(Jenner, Duncans Mills, Cazadero, the Russian River, and Fort Bragg) when it was nothing more than a tiny town commemorated with a plague for the Russian Fort. I am so jealous!

    The ‘Not-eggs’ looked delicious and I’m going over in my mind to see if I have most of the ingredients to make it for dinner tonight. Oh, by the way, what brand of food processor do you recommend? Mine’s gone to heaven.

    A side note… I’ve been giving my kitties a spirulina tablet since your show. Miss Kitty eats it like candy and wants more, but Be-Bop won’t touch it. Now I’m worrying about his health compared to hers. Any suggestions?

  10. mary says:

    Wish I was gonna be there in Ft. Bragg with you! (My hubby and I went to Mendocino for our honeymoon:) Have fun and be raw:P

  11. I hope to get there again next year but can’t make it this weekend…
    Enjoy it all … Blessings, Marina

  12. gina says:

    Yes I do keep my laptop in the kitchen so I can read and then watch you two make/prepare the food.. it really helps looking at your videos.
    Thank you so much It is really appreciated!

    Sorry no ft bragg for me I ma in NY too far at the moment. I wish I was going though.

    Thank you keep up the great work!

  13. Genevieve says:

    Thanks for this recipe. Looks more like lunch to me too. Think I might add some coconut milk to it. I like creamy eggs.

    I live in Canada, so won’t be attending the Ft. Bragg event either.

    Have fun!

  14. Tyra McMahon says:

    i really don’t like to start out my day with too much nuts and fat for it just makes me sluggish. Green smoothies are my fuel of choice. Wish I could be there in Fort Bragg but can’t . Maybe one day. Too bad I missed you when you were near Berkeley CA. I’m going there around sept 6th. I live in Canada. Thanks for all the great info you share with us. Love your videos. But you still havn’t answered my question about autoimmune and proteins in the blood.

  15. Carol says:

    I won’t be able to make it but love that area
    also. You’ve got to try riding horses on the beach in Mendocino!

  16. Mary says:

    Too far to Ft. Bragg from Indiana. Darn!
    I agree, this looks more like lunch.
    How long should I soak my nuts before I then dehydrate them?? Can I do alot of nuts this way and save them? If so, how should I save them? I am pretty new to all of this. But, I am learning and loving it and becoming detoxed and healthy.

  17. Dorian says:

    I LOVE when you do the recipe shows…I definitely want to try this one-I know my husband will want to try it too (my teenage sons however? not too sure about that) Sorry I won’t be able to make it to Fort Bragg but the next time you make it down to San Diego I’ll be waiting! Thanks for all the great information =)

  18. christine says:

    i tried this recipe for dinner just now. i just used nuts that had been soaking, so they were wet but i chose not to add water. i like the texture.

    i also added a garlic clove, and a small carrot (within the food processor mixture). yum.

  19. christine says:

    p.s. in the town of Mendocino, near Ft Bragg, there is an Inn (Stanford Inn) with an all-vegan restaurant (the ravens) and they have this very dish for breakfast, over marinated raw spinach. it is phenomenal.

  20. I am on the East Coast and wont be there.

  21. Irene says:

    I notised that almost all raw foods use lots of nuts, seeds & avocado. Isn’t this fattening?

  22. Sounds good and easy to make.


  23. Mary Goff says:

    Genevieve – Coconut added sounds great!
    Have a fabulous time at Ft. Bragg….we love ya!

  24. martha says:

    live in nc actually a couple of hours from another place called ft. bragg. time to come east.

  25. elle~b says:

    Mmmm…I think I will try adding a little thinly sliced red onion, jalapenos and some cumin to my ‘eggs’ and wrap them up a big ole’ green leaf and eat ’em burrito style!

  26. Jo says:

    Love your videos!!! Are you ever coming to the east coast?? Philly or NY??

  27. Rafael Morales Jr says:

    Hello Kevin and Annmarie
    those scramble not so scramble looks real good.
    I am in Texas so I am not so close by.
    Hey Kevin have you heard about a sugar call Turbinado raw sugar and it only has 4grams of sugar, is this product good for me been a diabetic. Honey has 16 or more grams and Agave has 16grams. I just need to know please.

  28. Hippychick says:

    does dehydrating nuts for so long turn them rancid?

  29. zyxomma says:

    No, Kevin & Annmarie, I won’t be attending. Mary, soak your nuts for a minimum of 20 minutes, overnight for big ones (like Brazil nuts). Then rinse them and dehydrate until crunchy again (can take a whole day for some nuts). Put them in a ziploc bag and keep them refrigerated. Soaking removes the enzyme inhibitors that coat the nut. The tree expends a great deal of energy to make nuts, and coats them with enzyme inhibitors so they don’t sprout immediately when it rains. The other way to enjoy nuts is in nut butters. The “Better Than Roasted” brand of nut butters uses soaked, dehydrated nuts, which is optimal, but grinding into butter exposes so much of the surface area of the nut that it’s more digestible than when it’s not soaked and just chewed. Health and peace to all!

  30. Rose Vasile says:

    In this recipe you can skip two steps–dehydrating the nuts and seeds, and adding water to the recipe. Just soak the nuts and seeds, drain and rinse them, then use them in the recipe. They will be moist enough from soaking so you won’t need to add water to the recipe, or just add a bit of water.

    I’d love to go to Fort Bragg this weekend, but it’s quite a trip from Vancouver Island. There will be a lot of informative, interesting speakers there, plus the food will be awesome. Have fun!

  31. Kat says:

    Umm…with the exception of the kelp flakes, this is Ani Phyo’s recipe, Love-the-Chicks Pate.

    Unfortunately I won’t be in Ft. Bragg. Have fun!

  32. jackie says:

    The recipe sounds yummy, and the two of you are just too cute! Wish I were going to Ft. Bragg…boo-hoo. I’ve never been there. If someone sends me a round trip plane ticket from Chicago, I’ll be there in a flash, but I’m not counting on it. Have fun, and many thanks for the recipes!

  33. Jackie says:

    I’ve always wondered why first soak nuts if your going to dry them again?

    Oops…forgot to say great post! Looking forward to your next one.

  35. Didiydi says:

    It was fun to read where your viewers come from…No Ft Braggs for me either, I live in London UK. Have fun!

  36. Frederik Ackermann says:

    This doesn’t have anything to do with todays episode – First I wanna say that I very much enjoy your show, and admire your energy and knowledge – but I really think that what you are missing when interviewing different health experts is actually using your knowledge – you never actually challenge what the people you interview say, even though you often seem to agree with what they are saying. This brings up some weird situations where you agree with one perosn in one interview, or recommend one person or product, and then later seem to agree with somebody else saying the opposite?!
    For instance I just listned to part of the interview with Edward Group – who undoubdetly has a great knowledege about both herbs and intestinal cleansing – yet when he begins to say that you can live without eating anything for years – I mean common do you really belive that? also he critisises herbal cleansing products, like the ones Jon Barron produces – a person and product line you have promoted earlier. This (hopefully) contructive critisism actually also applies to Mike Adams, who also interviews a lot of interesting knowledegeable people – and agrees with them, even though they hold opposing views.

  37. Dear AnnMarie –

    I was reading Russell James’ blog (raw chef in England) and he was talking about how he used his food processor. One of the things that he does is tilt his food processor left and right to keep the foods moving. This way, you don’t have to keep opening and scraping down the sides. I do this quite a lot (I’m a chef, too) and it works really well for most recipes. Just thought I’d pass that cool tip along.

    I have a question about something you said. You said that we should soak our nuts and seeds and then dehydrate them – which I already do. But then you said to grind them. Why grind?

    P.S. Won’t see you in Ft. Bragg, but you’ll be at the Raw Spirit Fest in DC, right? I’ll be at that event!

    Take good care,

  38. Yair says:

    looks good, but there’s too much concentrated fat in it (I wouldn’t take that before a hike for instance) besides, eating so much brazil nuts at once is way too much SELENIUM!
    I’d recommend eating 2 brazil nuts a day. That’s more than enough..
    (ofcourse you can never know the real Selenium content in the specific nuts, they vary a lot..)
    I’d love your input on the subject(:

  39. Irlanda Borquez says:

    I have to say guys, I love you doing all this recipe thing, it gives me a lot of ideas but this one, nuts and avocado terrible combination, and for breakfast I have to say the only time I did that my hunger sensation came back like in 20 hours, and my stomach was so upset, I will never do that again. I’m in Mexico by the way, and love your show

  40. RawMaMia says:

    You guys are so cute together! Thanks for all your Raw tips. Hope to see you in D.C.

  41. Michele Owen says:

    Looks yummy. I agree that it looks more like lunch.

  42. Beth says:

    Looks like a tasty dish. I will have to give it a try sometime.

    I won’t be in Ft. Bragg, as I live in Canada. Enjoy the Living Food Expo.

    I don’t have a laptop, so it is never on the kitchen counter 😉

    Since I’m not 100% raw, but high raw, I prefer my real eggs sunny side up on a bed of raw spinach.

  43. Aggie says:

    Whether it’s desserts or scrambled not-eggs, it seems like there is a push to make raw recipies that are similar to commonly eaten SAD foods. I think that’s why you get comments about the wrong amounts of certain types of nutrients. Although there is even differences of opinion among natural health providers as to how much and when to eat certain types of foods, along with how to combine them, I think you should stay away from recipes that try to mimic foods we no longer eat that we used to on the SAD lifestyle.

  44. Maia says:

    I will see you at the Vibrant Living Expo but you won’t see me! I am “attending” over the internet since it was more than I could afford right now.

    I did get to see you two at the talk at the Cafe Gratitude in Healdsburg a few weeks ago. You were so inspirational Kevin. I spent days writing up ideas afterwards. And you were so nice to talk with Annmarie. You guys are great!

    Off to sign in and watch the Expo now…

  45. Chris & Sara says:

    MMM That looks good. Thanks for the breakfast ideas, we can always use them!

    Kevin you cant just say you are being filmed by a big ol camera like that (a flip on steroids lol ) and NOT TELL US! Was that the Food Network in the Kale Whale?!?!?! What goes on? 🙂

    Great show!

    Sorry we wont be leaving our rock to go to the festival. But have a blast and post lots of goodies for us~

    Rawk on!


  46. Gwen Forbes says:

    I would love to attend the Living Food Expo but I live in Canada so it is too far to travel.

  47. Barbara Howard says:

    Recipe looks great. Yes I saw you guys today at the Vibrant Living Expo in Fort Bragg. What a great time everyone is having. Will see you again tomorrow. I wish all of your viewers could be here.

  48. Irondoll says:

    Say “hi” to my friends Lisa and Bob and Fatima and Matt. Lisa’s enjoying her advocation as a veg chef and is raising the bar to raw. I’m so proud of her!

    Yair, it is too much concentrated fat, however, re selenium, I read a chart once that showed 2 different measurements, and there is much less in the shelled nut than those you have to crack open. I prefer the onces you must crack open, since I’d get my RDA out of 2, I’m pretty sure.

    Now that I’ve been diagnosed with gall stones, I need to take a different route.

    Hey, if you see Dr. Fred Bisci, give him a big hug from me…love that man!


  49. I may see you in Ft. Bragg. I am arriving Monday to attend the Tuesday FUNdamentals Class. I will go to the institute and rubber-neck to try to find someone I recognize. Hope to cross your path.
    What is happening in DC? I live an hour away and could attend.

  50. I would like to try this too. How come you never eat the recipes and tell us if its any good or not?

  51. Cindy says:

    Hi Guys,
    Recipe looks great. I;m with mary (16) and would love for you to do a show on soaking nuts and seeds, which ones need it, how long, how long to rinse, do you change the water, can you eat straight after soaking or do you have to dehydrate. Also I don’t have a dehydrator but one I looked at only had one temperature setting. Is this normal to dehydrate at one temperature or do different things require different temps and times?
    I know that most of your audience are “Raw” but there are a few of us that watch to learn and try different, healthier options and I often get lost when you mention some things, especially things you take or use in the kitchen, that I have never heard of.
    Thanks guys and have a great day.
    P.S. I won’t be seeing you in Ft Bragg as i live in Sydney Australia.

  52. Hey! Great to meet you guys at the Expo this weekend…you inspire me so much!

    (and I’m looking forward to the skin care products Annmarie!)


  53. Joan says:

    That looks yummy! Can’t wait to try! I enjoy your shows and others comments too! Keep up the good work!

  54. sherry says:

    Sorry, Can’t come I am in florida.
