Simply raw

01 October 2009

After a couple of days of eating only fruit it was time to add some veggies into my diet.  This might not sound that exciting to you but after 2 days of eating fruit I could hardly wait….

75% [intlink id=”72″ type=”post”]raw vegan diet [/intlink]has appealed to me for awhile but I was nervous about getting started, even the prospect of sprouting has scared me!  Days 3-4 were started with a simple fruit salad of melon & pineapple for breakfast.  Despite eating these fruits for every meal on day 2 I still really enjoyed it.

Chop up 1/4 melon and pineapple in chunky pieces and eat.  Simple, easy and tasty!
Lunch time was salad with sprouts and an oil, balsamic and chilli dressing. Yum scrum.

Pick some tasty leaves to be the base of your salad, I included kale and spinach.  Roughly chop white cabbage, celery, carrots, advacado and chuck in some sprouts. Portion wise have about half a handful of each and any spare put in the fridge for later.

Dinner time is still carb free, a veggie stir fry with cashew nuts and sesame seeds.  I stir fried roughly chopped carrot, white cabbage, green beans & broccoli with chilli, garlic and soy sauce with sesame seeds & cashew nuts thrown in at the end.

This is the start of my raw experience and I know my meals will be more creative in time the more I prepare.  For now there is nothing wrong with simple raw food.  Infact generally there is nothing wrong with simplicity when cooking, as long as it tastes GOOD.
