HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!! Hope everyone is having fun celebrating! No green beer for me tonight (the green food coloring actually really creeps me out) because I am going to work! Of course! Soo today was Raw Food Long Change and I spent the afternoon uncooking 😉
I got up this morning at about 8:00am, came out to the livingroom to check my email and fell back asleep!! I didn’t wake up until 10:30am 😦 Oh well. I took Bizzle for a walk as soon as I did get up because it was soo gorgeous outside. We only walked for about 30 minutes before my stomach started grumbling. I came home and had half of one of these:
Not that bad. Not the best flavor I’ve ever had, but not bad. I also had a GREEN MONSTER. In honor of shamrock day of course 😉
And I took the picture in honor of Janetha. It was just my usual banana, spinach and water but I added xanthan gum – the reason it looks like I painted on my mustache.
I made kale chips! And didn’t overcook them this time! I used a different recipe this time though and they are suuuperb.
big bunch of kale
1 red pepper
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 1/2 lemons, juiced
1 cup soaked cashews
2 tsp sea salt
Put everything in the food processor except for the kale and Cut out the stem in kale and cut into chip like pieces. Pour sauce over kale and massage until coated. Leave a bit extra and drop in blobs. Dehydrate on teflex sheets for about 6-12 hours.
I also had a little helper this afternoon. He didn’t really help. More so laid in the sun.
I also made a raw spinach dip. I was going to take it to work but (sorry work peeps!!) I’m selfish! 😉
Raw Spinach Dip
1 cup raw cashews, soaked for 2 hours
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 cloves of garlic
1 lemon, juiced
3/4 cup water
5 ounces spinach
1/8 red onion
1 red pepper
sea salt to taste
Add all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. That’s it. Easy and yummy.
I kind of forgot to eat lunch this afternoon (laundry, grocery shopping and cooking kind of got in the way) so I made a veggie burger, some parmesan Triscuit craackers, spinach dip and a protein cupcake! I stole the recipe from Therese and I am OBBBBSEEEEEESSEEDD.
Le prison plate:
Tonight we made yam falafels. They are bright orange and I can’t wait! No time to post a pic -you’ll just have to wait until tomorrow!! GOTTTAA GO!!!
Hope you have a great night!
