RAW Day

Breakfast: Cashew Banana Mylk (recipe from Ani Phyo's Ani's Raw Food Kitchen)

Lunch: Raw Stir Unfry with Raw Dressing
Stir Unfry -
  • 4-5 bok choy leaves, torn into pieces
  • ½ head small cabbage, sliced
  • 1 small daikon radish, shredded
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 3 stalks broccoli
  • handful of snow peas, destemmed
  • few sprigs parsley
  • Sesame seeds (to garnish)

Combine everything in a large bowl.

DRESSING -

  • splash of Nama Shoyu (or Bragg's)
  • splash of raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 inch piece of ginger
  • 3/4 cup cold pressed extra virgin olive oil

Combine everything in a blender until smooth. Pour over stir unfry.

Dinner: Raw Cucumber Soup (recipe from gone raw)

  • 2 large cucumbers, peeled
  • 1 cup celery juice
  • 1 avocado
  • ½ cup olive oil (cold pressed)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon Nama Shoyu (or Bragg's)
  • 1 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon raw sweetener
  • Celtic sea salt, to taste

Combine everything in a blender until smooth and yummy.

Dessert: Raw Key Lime Coconut Bars (recipe from gone raw)

  • 1½ cup raw cashews
  • 1½ cup dates
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest (zest before juicing)
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 cup dehydrated raw coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon raw coconut oil

Combine everything in a food processor. If you don't have a food processor (like me), mix everything in a blender on the lowest speed. The mixture shouldn't be a liquid, but should be moist enough to hold together when you squeeze it in your hands. Press the mixture in a pan. Refrigerate for at least one hour. Cut into squares and enjoy.
