We’ve got good news for you guys. The days of crazy crash diets are gone, gone, gone. Yup. These days, it’s all about the complete lifestyle change. Between eating vegan, gluten-free or even Paleo, it gets hard to keep up with the latest food trends. So what’s next on the lifestyle switch-up? Living fully raw. YouTube sensation FullyRawKristina has mastered the raw food diet by creating recipes that won’t make you want to go back. Check out 14 of her yummy recipes below.
1. Jelly Donuts: Yes, it is possible to eat a raw donut. Trust us, we were surprised too, but our mouths were watering when we watched her top it off with coconut icing. Yum!
2. Strawberry Shortcake: This is one strawberry shortcake that you don’t have to feel bad about eating. Layer strawberries and coconut-flavored whip to make a dessert perfect for summertime.
3. Vegan Lasagna: Lasagna is one of our favorite dishes to make, so when we saw that this one is not only raw but also vegan, we knew it was a must-try. It’s full of fresh ingredients like arugula, parsley, green onion and Swiss chard leaves.
4. Banana Ice Cream Split: You better believe we’ll be trying this Banana Ice Cream Split STAT. The best part? This is one dessert that doesn’t have to count as a cheat food.
5. Minestrone Soup: If you’re in the mood for something warm and cozy, use this recipe to make a batch of Minestrone Soup. As Kristina says, it’s savory, sweet and satisfying. Oh, we’re so in.

9. Vegan Pad Thai: What’s for dinner? We’re voting for this Pad Thai that is full of yummy veggies and topped with a ginger dressing. Can you say yum?
10. Curry Noodles: Sometimes you need something rich and savory. And when that time comes, try making these curry noodles. We’re positive they won’t disappoint.
11. Rainbow Cake: Just because you’re eating only raw food now doesn’t mean you can’t have a delish birthday cake. This cake is just the proof you need.
