RAW FOOD CLEANSE~DAY 9

February 9, 2012 at 9:07 am (Raw Food) (, , , , , )

Today, was just one of those days that I couldn’t find the time eat! So rough! But from what I did get to munch on was good 🙂 Busy, Busy day.

 

Day 9

Breakfast-Porridge

  • Another fabulous taste for Living Intentions Apples, Mulberries, Raisins & Spice porridge. I love the chew of raisins and the kick of the spice! If you like apples, this has a lot of that too. Whole foods in Southern California actually has this in their bulk bin section! Heck yea. How bomb is that.

Lunch-Veggies with hummus dip

  • Day 4 Hummus has it’s last of a good batch I think, so I just took some great veggies and covered it in the Zucchini hummus bliss 🙂

Drink-Tea.

  • Some green tea is always a nice way to end the day!

RAW FOOD CLEANSE~DAY 6

February 6, 2012 at 8:44 am (Raw Food) (, , , )

It’s leftover day! When things are good….getting to eat them again is just lucky! On the menu today is Game Day Nachos and Hummus. That’s the nice thing about raw food, it doesn’t need to be heated and is still good the next day. Maybe not day 3, but definitely day 2 🙂 

 

Day 6

 

Breakfast-bowl of fruit

  • Strawberries, blueberries, mango, and watermelon sprinkled chia powder! All fabulous tastes with some superfood action. Plus, a perfect way to start the morning.

Lunch-left over nachos

  • Check out Day 5 for this fabulous recipe…it definitely will be repeated before the end of my cleanse…and after!

Dinner-nacho sauce w/celery and hummus with carrots

  • Leftover Nacho Cheese and leftover hummus with some yummy veggies. 

Dessert-White chocolate nuts with tea

  • I miss chocolate so much. What do I miss more than chocolate? WHITE CHOCOLATE! My new addictive dessert is Living Intentions White Chocolate Nuts. The taste is perfect. And RAW?! Yup, so good!

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. 🙂

 

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 🙂 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!
