I have decided to do a Raw foods challenge!
I've been talking about it for a long time, but never took the plunge. Today, after a trip to the grocery store, I am ready to --- uh, NOT cook.
I grabbed my new book, Raw Food Kitchen by Dunja Gulin, and gathered up my produce and grains. I decided to ease into it with a kale an orange smoothie. I do love smoothies.
Then I moved on to what the book called "pizza". I wouldn't call it that, but it turned out good. The crust is a mix of oats, ground sunflowers, and flaxseed. The toppings are marinated mushrooms, tomatoes, and something not even close to cheese---it's cashews, lemon juice, and chopped onions ground in the food processor. Here it is!
My goal is to do all raw foods for at least a week, then I may add in some other things. It really is just for fun so I'm not too worried about it. Last summer a friend and I did a challenge where everything we ate had to be from the farmer's market. I liked how it made me find new recipes and get more creative and healthy. I am going to have to get pretty creative with the raw foods. I'll keep you posted on how it's going!
