Raw Peach Cobbler

Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a great morning 😀 I’m so glad you’re enjoying the why I became a personal trainer post– not gonna lie, I felt a little weird putting everything out there, but as always, was glad I did 😉

Since I had a late bfast yesterday (and ran 5.5 miles in the morning), my afternoon snack was a banana and apple with the standard almond butter, cinnamon and mesquite combo.


We did some stuff around the casa, the pilot worked on an icon for the new website I’ve been talking about, and then I met Jeni for some back, biceps and abs later in the afternoon.

Warm up Elliptical, level 6 5 minutes
Bent-over wide row 8 lbs each 3 sets of 12
Hammer curls 8 lbs each 3 sets of 12
Weighted crunch 5 lbs 3 sets of 12
Straight bar cable curl 30 lbs 3 sets of 10
Decline leg raises body weight 3 sets of 12
Saxon side bend 5 lbs each 3 sets of 10
Total time: 50 minutes    

When I got back to the casa, I started on dinner.

We had some guacamole (which I dipped into with quite a few Mary’s Gone Crackers)


I sauteed up some shrimpies with orange bell pepper, garlic, onion, cumin, cayenne and sea salt with a little EVOO


And made some black beans with sweet onion, garlic, 1/2 can diced tomatoes, cumin and coriander.


The pilot had his shrimpies quesadilla-style (I grilled them on the Foreman with some organic Mexican cheese)


And I had mine salad beast-style (with the black beans and tomatoes, some salsa, and goat jack cheese)


I love our little family dinners 😀

After our feast, the pilot and I washed all of the dishes by hand because our dishwasher decided to call it quits yesterday. Someone is supposed to be here to fix it later on, but suuuuuuuch a pain to wash them by hand!

Our reward was some

Raw Peach Cobbler


I loosely based this one off of what I remembered from the blueberry cobbler Ani made at the Live and Learn event.

-Toss one large thinly sliced peach with 1/4 T cinnamon, 1/2 t agave, sprinkle or nutmeg, a pinch of sea salt and a splash of  lemon juice


-Spread the peach slices onto a Teflexx sheet and dehydrate at 115* while you prepare the crumble (you can skip this part, but it’s nice to warm it up a little in the dehydrator)

To make the crumble:

-Add 5 medjool dates, a pinch of sea salt, 1 ts vanilla extract, 1/4 C. raw walnuts and 1/3 C. raw almonds in the food processor

-Process until combined and still and a little crunchy


-Snack on a couple of bits of the crumble if your name is Gina, because it’s pretty freaking delicious

-Layer the peach slices and top with the crumble and your favorite raw vegan ice cream or in the pilot’s case: Haagen Daz 😉



Here’s the stuff I’ve got going on today:

-Catch up on blogs/emails

-Yoga podcast (it’s my day off, so I’m gonna take it easy)

-Make business calls

-Go to Publix for ingredients (we have a wive’s coffee tonight and I’m making an appetizer.. not sure what yet)

-Walk the puppers

-Pray the mechanic can fix the dishwasher

-Work on Zumba dances and make a spin CD for tomorrow

-Make appetizer and dinner for the pilot

-Wife’s meeting (I’ve missed the last two since I was at school, so I’m super excited)

I’m off!

Have a wonderful morning!

      • Diana (Soap & Chocolate) on October 13, 2009 at 11:00 am

        Agreed – I have to literally stop myself from eating everything over zucchini pasta these days. I love variety but dang, zucchini pasta is just da bizness. Look forward to tasting your pesto!

        Oh and loved your personal trainer story – I learned a lot! Will keep it in the back of my mind. 🙂

  8. Whitney @ Lettuce Love on October 13, 2009 at 9:35 am

  11. Jenny on October 13, 2009 at 9:41 am

    I’ve been reading your blog for about a month now and I’ve learned so much! Thanks for sharing your life with us! The cobbler looks seriously scrumptious! Good luck getting your to-do list done!

  12. rhodeygirl on October 13, 2009 at 9:43 am

    WOW. Never thought I’d see a raw version of that! YUM!

  13. Simone @ P:T on October 13, 2009 at 10:02 am

    Can you come over and make me some cobbler! YUM! That is so a dish that would be perfect to bring to Thanksgiving dinner as a healthy dessert!! 🙂

  14. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on October 13, 2009 at 10:08 am

    Looks great, the peach cobbler that is! I have a few of Ani’s books and I’ve never made it but I make my own version of raw apple crumble/cobbler that I invented and I love that so this would be yum too!

  15. Jessie (Vegan-minded) on October 13, 2009 at 10:17 am

    That raw peach cobbler looks so good. I love the cooked version, but I bet the raw one is even better (and healthier). I am going to have to try it soon!

  16. Felicia on October 13, 2009 at 10:29 am

    I was just thinking that I was going to make black beans tonight! That looks delicious. I might have to throw some shrimp in there now.

    Also, I definitely hope that you get your dishwasher fixed today. We don’t have a dishwasher in our apartment, and that’s definitely the worst part about cooking – clean up. Hate it. Maybe one day I’ll have one… 🙂

  17. K on October 13, 2009 at 10:54 am

    Oh my sweet Lord, that peach cobbler looks fantastic! Fruity desserts with cinnamon are always a hit with me 🙂

    We don’t have a dishwasher and doing dishes is THE WORST! I hate dishes!! It ranks up there with laundry in chores that are obnoxiously annoying. Hope you get yours fixed!

  18. Krista on October 13, 2009 at 11:41 am

    GREAT looking cobbler! YUM!

  19. Katie on October 13, 2009 at 11:58 am

    I gotta try that peach cobbler!


  20. Abby (Abby's VeGaN Eats) on October 13, 2009 at 1:07 pm

  29. Sherri O. on September 15, 2010 at 2:42 pm

    I have been following your blog for about 3 months and finally decided to try the peach cobbler recipe. I am a mother of 6 kids and the wife of one hungry man 🙂 While preparing the recipe I had two of my boys with me in the kitchen making some really funny faces. When I tried the “crumble” and oohed and aaahhhed about it their faces changed. Needless to say they were hooked with just one bite. I took the plate to the hubby to taste (as I’m not making anyone else eat the way I’m trying, just taste it), he took the plate, ate half and was groaning with foodgasm the whole time. I had to take the plate away from him so I could enjoy. Thank you for the recipe and I am looking forward to trying many more.

    • Fitnessista on September 15, 2010 at 3:49 pm

      that makes me so excited!!! so glad you guys liked the cobbler 🙂
