February 11, 2012 at 9:48 am (Raw Food) (, , , , , , )

Did I mention I was going to be having a few of these long work days? So not much/anytime to “cook”. But I couldn’t leave you hanging with no new thing to take away. So I have 3 new products for you. Enjoy!

Day 11

Drink-Kombucha

  • Synergy raw Kombucha. Honestly, its not something I grab from the fridge because I’m craving it. But I do know its good for me so throw it back!

Snack-Cucumbers olive oil w/salad booster

  • My favorite seasoning-Living Intentions Salad Booster original. I basically put this on everything. Taste good…good for ya. Easy peasy 

Dessert-Chocolate Ball Treats

  • I loveeee chocolate. This is perfect! These treats are the perfect size and perfect taste. A MUST.

RAW FOOD CLEANSE~DAY 3

February 3, 2012 at 11:44 am (Raw Food) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Still feeling good about this cleanse. I think whats really carrying me through this is the excitement of creating new and tasty recipes. My friends asked me about this cleanse and wondered what I was going to eat besides a bunch of salads. Well, this is my journey to find out what else there is to this wonderful world of healthy foods.

DAY 3

Breakfast-Cereal with help milk

  • Cereal is definitely something I’m craving. I used to eat it every morning. And people always say to cut out the cereals because its not healthy and is just empty calories. So I was very excited to know that I could still eat my morning bowl of cereal with Living Intentions Cacao Crunch Cereal. (You’ll probably see me having this a few times a week!) The best part with the chocolate flavor is when it soaks in the milk, it gives me chocolate milk!
  • I also made super healthy Hemp Milk in almost 2 minutes! This is a super healthy alternative to regular cow’s milk and was surprisingly quick to make!
  1. 1 c coconut water (for a lil sweeter taste)
  2. 2 c filtered water
  3. 1 c shelled hemp seeds
  4. 2-3 tbsp agave nectar
  5. 1 tspn Vanilla
Throw all this in the blender on high till very, very smooth! (even a minute is fine) Pour this in a sealed jar and it’ll last 3 days 🙂 (good for 2 people)

Lunch-Left over Cauliflower Mash

  • I show that good lovin’ to left overs!

Snack-Epic Kale chips

  • I never thought I would be a fan of kale but I am officially ADDICTED! Blessings Alive and Radiant Foods rocked these! I could easily finish the entire bag of the Quite Cheesy Kale chips! Crazy good.

Dinner-Epic Arugula Pumpkin Seed Pesto Lasagna!

  • This day just keeps getting better. My mom and boyfriend aren’t eating these foods with me but when they tried this dish, they asked me when I was going to make it for them! HA. So good. I’m also not a fan at all of Zucchini, but this is the bomb. I know what I’m making again next week!!
                    Pumpkin Arugula Pesto
  1. 1 c Arugula
  2. 1/3 c Living Intentions Ayurvedic Chili Blend Pumpkin Seeds
  3. 2 garlic gloves
  4. Himalayan salt to taste
  5. 1/4 Sun Dried tomatoes
  6. 2 tbsp tahini
  7. 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  8. Handful of basil
  9. 3 tbsp natural yeast
  10. 1/4 Living Intentions Salad Booster Vegan Cheesy
Put everything in the blender  till creamy
                    Lasagna Layers
  1. Zucchini
  2. Small tomato
  3. Sauerkraut
Take the zucchini and slice into strips. Use a mandoline for thinner pieces but a knife
works well too.  After that, slice a small tomato.  Now you build the lasagna.
  1. Take a few slices of zucchini and place it on the place
  2. Next a tomato slice
  3. Top it with the Sauerkraut and Pesto
  4. Repeat the layers! ( I made 3)
  5. Top with raw cheese (if you’re not vegan)

Today just made me super stoked about what more creations I will make over the next month. If it looks like today, then I will be extremely satisfied. Definitely let me know what you think bout this one. “Cooking” is an invention and an art. Sharing, changing and mixing are all part of the process. And I can’t wait to share these with the world!

RAW FOOD CLEANSE~DAY 2

February 2, 2012 at 11:50 am (Raw Food) (, , , , , , , , , , )

I’m on day 2 and ready to start creating! During the work day, it’ll be a bit more tough to do much but dinner will be my first real creation! For today, I’m hoping I can make something that fills me up this time. 

DAY 2

Breakfast-Left over smoothie with acai blueberry cereal added

  • I’m a fan of left overs. If you’re not hungry…then don’t finish it! Just pop it in a jar or closed container and eat it up the next day 🙂 So I got a little creative. Instead of milk, I took my left over smoothie from yesterday and added Living Intentions Acai Blueberry Cereal. Created some great flavor and texture!

Drink-Coconut water

  • Whether you’re a raw foodist, health nut or love your junk food, who can resist a nice cold glass of coconut water with pulp!

Snack-Mango

  • Fresh diced mango and a glass of coconut water….felt like I was back on the beaches of Thailand. Sandy white beaches in my living room!

Lunch-Salad

  • Easy and quick…a salad is always nice. Throw on some onions, cucumber, sweet bell peppers, Zukay Raw Sweet Onion Basil salad dressing. Top off with Living Intentions Gone Nuts! Rosemary Garlic and Living Intentions Salad Booster Vegan Cheesy. And don’t forget some fresh blueberries for a nice sweet taste. Pretty good!

Dinner-Cauliflower Mash + Mushroom Gravy

  • I love mashed potatoes! So having an alternative is crucial. Check out this bomb recipe.
                    MASH:
  1. 3 c Cauliflower broken to small piece
  2. 1/4 cup avocado
  3. 1 minced Garlic
  4. 1/8 c lemon juice
  5. 1 tbls olive oil
  6. 2 tspn sage
  7. Living Intentions  Salad Booster Vegan Cheesy (as much as you like)
  8. 1/4 c Living Intentions Ayurvedic Chili Blend Sprouted Sunflower and Pumpkin Seeds.  (added for spiciness and crunch)
Put everything in a food processor till smooth (or texture you like)
                   
                    GRAVY:
  1. 1/8 c Olive Oil
  2. 2 small mushrooms
  3. 1/4 Filtered water
  4. 1 tspn Apple cider vinegar
  5. 1 small minced garlic
  6. Himalayan salt (to taste)
Put everything in the blender till smooth.
I put the mash in a bowl, poured on the gravy and topped with some small cucumber slices. Then  have a side “slice” of Raw Mineral Rich Crust by Mauk Family Farms. Lots of taste so I drank it with some coconut water…perfect to wash it all down with 🙂 My family tried it and definitely like it.
Dessert-Don’t forget some nice sweets to finish off a great dinner!
  • Super nice Lemon & Coconut by Cafe Gratitude (YES! they make package cookies!) Sitting down with a perfect cup of tea and raw honey. Not too shabby.
This was definitely a delicious day. Hopefully getting the hang of this! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think! Day 2~Winning 🙂
