16th Week of Raw

It's my 16th week of eating raw for one full day each week. I've definitely found my raw groove. This week I decided to mix things up a bit and have a raw cereal for breakfast instead of a smoothie - the blender is still used though ;)

Breakfast: Raw Cinnamon Cereal
I'll admit that I first got this idea from Ani Phyo's SmartMonkey bar cereal, but I have adapted beyond recognition. I've never seen SmartMonkey bars sold in stores, so I used a LARAbar instead. I also don't have a dehydrator, so I can't make Ani's buckwheat crispies. My advise to you is: throw whatever raw food you have in a bowl, cover it with your favourite raw milk and voila, raw cereal.
  • 1 cinnamon roll LARAbar, cut into bite sized pieces
  • handful of strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • handful of blueberries
  • handful of raw pumpkin seeds

MYLK - (recipe from Ani Phyo)

  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup pitted dates
  • 1 vanilla bean (or teaspoon alcohol free vanilla extract)
  • pinch sea salt
  • 5 cups filtered water

Toss everything in the blender and mix until smooth and frothy. Pour the mylk over the cereal and chow down.

Lunch: Raw Sweet Corn Chowder

Leftovers from last week.

Dinner: Raw Cauliflower Curry (recipe from gone raw)

  • 2 cups chopped cauliflower
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 6 soaked sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 cm piece of ginger
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup dried coconut
  • 1 cup water (use the soak water from the sun-dried tomatoes)

Mix everything in a food processor until well combined. Don't over process - it shouldn't be liquefied. The curry doesn't really photograph well, but if you like cauliflower (like I do), you will love this recipe.

Dessert: Raw Cherry Pudding Supreme (recipe from Dr. Brantley found via In the Raw)

  • 20 cherries, pitted
  • 1⁄2 avocado
  • 3 dates, pitted

Combine everything in a food processor until smooth. This recipe will only make one serving, so multiply by the number of people you need to feed. I love how simple this recipe is, and it tastes great too!
