Another Raw 24 hours

Breakfast: Berry Spinach Smoothie
  • handful of baby spinach
  • handful of strawberries
  • dash of cinnamon
  • water (if needed)

Everything goes into the blender.

CAUTION: This smoothie will look disgusting, but taste heavenly. If needed consume with eyes closed ;)

Lunch: Creamy Dreamy Raw Spinach Soup

  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • ½ cucumber, peeled
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 green onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • water

You know the drill - combine everything in the blender. Add water if necessary. This is probably the best soup I've made yet. Mine turned out very oniony - some people might want to use only half a green onion (or leave it out altogether).

Dinner: Apple Walnut Salad with Tangy Raw Dressing


  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • small bunch of romaine leaves
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • handful of walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 2 inch piece of cucumber, sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped


  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (cold pressed)
  • 1 tablespoon raw sweetener
Assemble all of the salad ingredients onto a plate. If you have some lemon juice leftover, drizzle it over the apple slices so they don't brown. Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together. Pour over the salad and mix.

You've probably noticed that my dinner was pretty light today and there was no dessert. Well that's because I have my very first uncooking class tonight! I'm so very excited. Since we'll be eating what we're making, I decided to have a light dinner to make room for all the yummy creations. I'll be taking lots of notes and pictures so I can blog about it later. 'Til next time uncookers ...
