More Raw Fooding

Effective immediately, my raw food schedule will be slightly modified. RIP Raw Food Wednesdays, and viva la Raw Food Tuesdays! Today I got a little creative and experimented with my own raw recipes for the first time. Verdict: So much fun! Here's my raw fooding for today ...

Breakfast: Fruity (slightly greeny) Raw Smoothie

  • handful of strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • several romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
  • dash of cinnamon
Combine everything in a blender. If the mixture seems too thick, add enough water to allow it to mix in the blender.

Lunch: Creamy Raw Gazpacho

  • 5-6 tomatoes
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 green onion
  • handful of cashews
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • several sprigs of parsley
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • sea salt (to taste)
Combine everything in a blender. Tomatoes are very acidic, hence this soup is not for anyone with a low pH (under 7). Add more nuts for a creamier soup.

TIP - Make a large batch of soup for lunch when you're starting off raw (this soup made 5 servings). If you get hungry in the afternoon you can quickly chow down the soup that's already made. Or spoon it into a travel mug to take on the go.

Dinner: Raw Zucchini "Pasta" with Alfredo Sauce

Everyone liked this dish so much last week, we had it again.

Dessert: Raw Mango Pudding

  • 2 mangoes, peeled
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup shredded dried unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • raw sweetener (to taste)
Combine everything in a blender. Spoon the pudding into dessert cups and chill in the fridge for at least an hour.

See you next week everyone!
