Raw day 4…. but whose counting anyway!
Today started with a super breakfast smoothie. Measure into a glass – 4 tbs oats, a banana, a handful of blueberries, top up with applejuice/water. Put into a blender and mix.
Looking back over the last few weeks our sentiments towards raw day have moved on from mild hesitation on the first day, but going with the idea because we know that it is soooooooooooooooooo good for us, to mild anticipation of those very nice evening meals out. Then this week I was mildly excited…..
The excitement was from adding another player to our Raw Wednesday group, who was most definitely mildly hesitation last week, and I was going to put in a special non cooking effort this week. Once a foodie always a foodie and the summer salads have been nice, fresh and crunchy but team raw wanted more and there is so much more to have; raw cheese, raw crackers, raw pesto. The challenge is making them!
After a weekend of baking I was a tad tired however I knew that team raw were relying on me to come up with the goods. I had a little look though the raw diet revolution by Cherie Sorie and spotted raw burritos – chopped up veggies including cabbage, tomatoes, courgettes, amongst others, topped with chilli and avocado and wrapped in lettuce leaves. It was flavourful, light & refreshing and you will have to take my word for it as I don’t have any photos.
We also had a wheatgrass shot from Crussh to give us super plant strength for the afternoon. I quite like the flavour….
Tonight I made myself raw courgettini and tomato sauce for dinner.
This evening I also bake some new flavoured muffins…. Raspberry, banana & choc chip and Chocolate & blueberry with chocolate ganache.
