Raw Kitchen Tales

Breakfast: Groovy Tangy Raw Smoothie (recipe from Green Appetite)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • Small piece of fresh ginger
  • 1 cup filtered water
Combine everything in the blender.
Lunch: Raw Tomato Soup

Another repeat soup.

Dinner: Raw Veggie Bowl
Quick & easy supper tonight. I pretty much threw all the veggies that I needed to use up in a bowl and topped with olive oil and lemon. My bowl used: zucchini (julienned), broccoli, romaine lettuce, orange bell pepper, cucumber, carrots (julienned), mango, parsley and mint. Normally I would have put some tomato in there too, but I left it out today because I had tomato soup for lunch.

Dessert: Raw Raspberry Delight (my own creation)

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked for at least 3 hours
  • 1/4 cup raw coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2-4 tablespoons raw sweetener (depending on taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (alcohol free or use seeds from a vanilla bean)
  • 2 handfuls of raspberries
  • water
Combine everything in the blender. Add enough water to make it blend. Pour into dessert cups and chill for a few hours. Garnish with mint (if you want). This one is so delicious I couldn't stop eating it!
