14 FullyRawKristina Video Recipes to Kickstart Your Raw Food Diet
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.
6. Rainbow Coleslaw: Nothing says summer food like a big batch of coleslaw. Add this raw option to your food lineup during the warmer months.
7. Vegan Chili: Yes, raw vegan chili is a thing. A really good thing, if you ask us. Thanks, Kristina!
8. Chocolate Pecan Pie: Chocolate anything is never a bad idea. All five layers of this pie sound absolutely amazing, which is why we’re totally making this for our next party.
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.
12. Sandwich Sliders: Looking to add to your appetizer table for your next summer party? These sandwich sliders are a no-brainer if you ask us.
13. Mashed Potatoes: Comfort food FTW. Make these mashed potatoes that are salt-free and oil-free, yet still totally mouth-watering.
14. Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream: We saved the best for last. Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream that is 100% raw and healthy? Yes, please.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
