RAW FOOD CLEANSE~DAY 7

February 7, 2012 at 4:37 am (Raw Food) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

It’s officially been a week. When I first started this I thought I wasn’t going to survive. Now I’m realizing how much flavor I can create in things that are actually good for me! Today was definitely a turning point when I realized how I can make foods that I used to eat that were terrible for me and actually have it be 100% guilt free feeling ūüôā

Day 7

 

Breakfast-Porridge

  • ¬†Oatmeal/porridge isn’t that bad I supposed but to have a RAW option….incredible. Today I ate some Living Intentions¬†Acai, Apple, Sultanas & Mangosteen Porridge. It was THE BOMB! Totally in love.

 

Lunch-Green “shake”

  • If you’re eating raw for the first time or forever, ya know by now that a green “shake” should be in your diet. Today I decided to make a light green, healthy drink with some great taste that doesn’t taste like grass. The green powder at the end of the recipe is incredible! We can never eat enough greens and this is greens perfection! It is good for so many parts of the body and can do no wrong. (although definitely has a “green” taste, so add¬†accordingly)¬†
  1. 1 bunch watercress
  2. 1 green apple
  3. 1 lime
  4. 1/4 cucumber
  5. 4 mint leaves
  6. 1 banana
  7. 1/4 c water
  8. 1 c ice
  9. Health Force Vitamineral Green powder
Put 1-4 in the juicer. Take 5-9 and throw in a blender and pour in the juice. Enjoy!

 

Dinner-Spaghetti with marinara

  • Thanks to my brothers incredible talent of “cooking” the best raw meals, I got to experience an unbelievable italian dish. Italian food is a weakness and I thought I was going to have to suffer through my cleanse without a bite of delicious carb goodness ūüôā OH NO! After eating this, I may never eat that bowl of empty carbs again! So I’m here to share with you the awesomeness wish is¬†Zucchini¬†and Kelp Noodle¬†Spaghetti. Good for 2 people
                    Noodles 
  1. 1 bag Sea Tangle Kelp Noodles 
  2. 1 zucchini cut in strips
  3. handful of cilantro
  4. 1/4 of red pepper
  5. 1 collared green leaf cut in strips

                Meat Sauce 

  1. 1/3 red pepper
  2. 1/2 c olive oil
  3. 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  4. 2 Roma Tomatoes
  5. 1/2 large tomato
  6. head of basil
  7. 1 tspn Himalayan Crystal Salt
  8. 1/2 sun dried tomatoes

For a more meaty taste throw in some Fennel, paprika, cumin, sage, oregano, and basil!

RAW FOOD CLEANSE~DAY 4

February 4, 2012 at 7:35 am (Raw Food) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Feeling pretty darn good today! I know, its only the 4th day but thats 4 days without all the foods I’m accustom to and all my comfort food. It definitely is a bit tough without having a food processor yet (bought a broken one apparently) and wishing I had a dehydrator to make chips and pizza crust!

Day 4
Living Intentions Acai Berry granola and my homemade hemp milk. Top this with fresh blueberries and it is super delicious! Breakfast-Granola and Hemp Milk

Snack-banana bread

  • Today, my boyfriend and I went hiking and I went to grab an¬†energy bar. Then realized that wasn’t something I¬†could¬†eat anymore. So I took the Go Raw Flax Banana Bread instead. At first, I didn’t quite hang on to the taste but after a few bites, it grew on me.

Snack-Zucchini Hummus

  • Before I started this cleanse, there were about 2-3 containers of hummus in the fridge at once. It’s one of our favorite snack foods. So, I wanted to try to make it raw! You would think that chick peas would be what should go in raw hummus. But chick peas are actually kind of fattening and hard to digest. Thanks to my brother, I now have the most incredible hummus…made from zucchini! Again, I really never liked zucchini, but this was so good, I’m planning to have my fridge stalked with this recipe!
                    Zucchini Hummus
  1. 2-zucchinis
  2. 4-garlic gloves
  3. head of cilantro
  4. 1/3 cup olive oil
  5. 1/2 cup lemon
  6. 3/4 cup tahini
  7. 3/4 cup sesame seeds
  8. 5-10 green olives
  9. spoonful cumin
  10. 1 serrano or japaleno chili
  11. Himalayan salt
  12. ground pepper

This makes a TON so cut this in half if its just 1 person. I eat these by the spoonfuls so was definitely good for me. ūüôā

 

Drink-Mango Milk Shake

I’m a huge fan of fruit smoothies. In this one heres what I threw in:

  1. 1 Mango
  2. 2 Clementines
  3. 6 ice cubes
  4. 1/2 Hemp milk
  5. Living Intentions Chia Powder (need to make this a superfood drink of course!)
Throw everything in the blender and put it in till smooth. Even having a few bits of mango is fabulous!

Dinner-Avocado fennel soup w/mango

  • I can’t even put this recipe on here! I finished making this and once I poured it in the bowl, just looking at it I knew this was going to be a bad one. I ate one. Ate 2. By the 5th spoonful, I had to throw it out before I got sick! I’ll have to work on this one. And I¬†definitely¬†won’t put up a pic, might get sick just looking at it lol

Dessert-Chocolate Goji Berry Cookies

  • I couldn’t end the night on a bad note! I can always count on a nice dessert to make me feel better ūüôā Here is an¬†AWESOME recipe and taste fabulous since I’m a total sucker for chocolate. Quick, easy, and yummmy. Thanks to¬†Living Intentions Super Flour recipe I was able to create a goodie that my whole family is eating now! And a Raw flour!? This is perfect. I’m going to be making so much stuff from this cool ingredient since I’m a huge dessert person.

 

Chocolate Goji Berry Cookies

If you like soft and chewy, this is for you! This will be good for about 8-10 cookies

  1. 1 c Living Intentions Super Flour
  2. 1/4 c agave
  3. 1/4 c cacao powder
  4. 1/4 (or less) Goji Berries ground in coffee grinder
  5. 1 soft date, mashed
  6. 1 1/2 tspn Cacao or any nut butter

Put everything in a bowl, knead well, shape and stick in the fridge! I recommend putting these on a Glad clear wrap so it can peel off easier. Enjoy! Soooo good!
