Rawday (aka Tuesday)

Breakfast: Iron Woman Smoothie
  • 1-3 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 1 banana
  • 1 orange, juiced
Toss everything in the blender and mix until bright green and lovely.

Lunch: Home-style Raw Minestrone Soup (recipe from Ani Phyo's Ani's Raw Food Kitchen)

Snack: Watermelon Sorbet (recipe from In the Raw)

I saw this recipe on In the Raw this morning - how perfect! I had some watermelon left over in the fridge, so I went straight to making this quick sorbet.

Dinner: Raw Zucchini "Fettuccine" with Raw Basil "Cream" Sauce (recipe from gone raw)

I finally got a julienne peeler! This is going to make my raw pastas a lot easier to prepare. You'll probably be seeing a lot of raw pasta recipes in the next few weeks ;)
  • 1 zucchini per person
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Juice of one medium lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion, chopped
  • A dash of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 big handful of fresh basil
Combine everything (except the zucchini and basil) in the blender. Blend until smooth. Add the basil and pulse to speckle the sauce with green flakes. Slice the zucchini into a fettuccine shape with a julienne peeler or spiralizer. Pour the "cream" sauce generously over the pasta.

Dessert: Raw Key Lime PuddingA blast from the past (new picture though).
  • 1 banana
  • 1 avocado
  • 4-5 limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup raw sweetener (agave, stevia, honey, etc ...)
Combine everything in a blender and mix until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Now it's back to the drawing board for next week's raw day ...
