One week in and I’m feeling great on my raw food journey. I allowed myself one cheat meal of a large salad with roasted chicken, but other than that – I’ve been 100% raw.
Since starting this “diet”, I’ve grown accustom to the “What the hell do eat then?” queries. Well, I’ve been chowing down on extra-large veggies salads with raw dressing, nuts, and loads of veggies and fruit. I haven’t gotten sick of the same old food yet, mostly because I’ve been mixing up different salad dressings and dips, but I assume I’ll grow real sick of the lack of heat soon.
So, I’ve signed up for a raw cooking class and am trying to start “cooking” some food in my dehydrator. I’ll keep putting up some of the better recipes I try, but for today, this recipe has been a serious staple in my diet for the past week. If you’re a busy body like me, this recipe is SUPER easy and still crazy good! Hope you enjoy it!
- Mix salad base of spinach and romaine salad
- Dice cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots, zucchini, walnuts, cranberries, mint leaves, basil leaves, and a little bit of cilantro. Obviously, you can add/remove any veggie or raw goodie that you like.
- In separate container, mix juice of half a lemon, diced ginger per your taste, one tablespoon of liquid aminos, one tablespoon of raw honey, and 1/4-1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil (cold pressed).
- Combine everything and VIOLA! DINNER IS SERVED!
Quick thank you to everyone that has sent me recipes to try!! I plan on trying a new reader recipe each week and I’ll review here.
Question – What’s for dinner?
