Who say you can't enjoy cheese sandwiches when eating raw?!?!??!

This is what I had for lunch today, didn't really use measurements (as usual) but here we go

Mexican cheeze spread
1 C soaked cashews
a bit of chili
1 clove of garlic
juice of 1 lemon
a small bunch of fresh coriander
nutritional yeast flakes approx 2-3 T
Mexican chili powder
a little bit of water

Mix the cashews and the lemon juice until smooth, add spices, let sit for a little bit and then serve on crackers or in my case baby cos lettuce leaves!

Green tomato soup
1 big tomato
1 handful cherry tomatoes
handful spinach
a small bit of onion

Blend and serve!

That cheeze turned out just amazing and I had no idea it would go so well on cos lettuce.

Raw food makes me so happy!

Yesterday I was 100% raw. The day before I was 80%. But lately in general I have had bad days :( But as a wise man once said Even monkeys fall.

Yesterday was the first day in a little while where I was 100% raw and I felt such happiness, I was out of this world, like taking happy pill, and all I did was making some raw ice cream and raw chocolate goji/sunflower squares! My life feels so much easier and I am GLOWING again :)

Anyway, the raw ice cream I made I pretty much followed the recipe below except from I just used only water, no cashew milk, and I added cacao, lucuma and cacao nibs. AMAZING!!! I love raw ice cream so so so much.

Now, I am munching on water melon, which is my favorite fruit :)

Happy days!

Raw egg noodle stir alive

Just came up with this recipe, it's one of the most delish meals I have ever tried! It taste exactly like a 'real' noodle dish.

I didn't really use measurements but you can't get it wrong! :)

Raw egg noodle stir alive
2 zucchinis medium size
a bunch of mint
a bunch of coriander
handful of snow peas
a handful of mushrooms ( I used dried oyster mushrooms, only thing I had home)
half a yellow bell pepper
1 T dulse falkes
1 T tamari
1 T sesame oil
1 piece of fresh chili
1 clove of garlic
handful of spinach

Make noodles out of the zucchini either with a spiralizlicer or cheese cutter or your favorite way. Cut the vegetables in various sizes. Massage everything in a bowl until "cooked" looking and marinated properly, gently heat it in a waterbath or the dehydrator.

Lately I have been doing really bad with sticking to eating raw 80% of the time, and believe me, I can FEEL it! This whole week I have suffered from headaches, tiredness and lack of energy and joy. I am currently trying to be raw 80 % of the time, and some days 100%. It's very interesting how you start to look at food, food that you considered healthy is now giving you headaches, when you meet other people and hear their opinions about what is healthy you just wanna shake them and tell them you're so wrong!!! But you can't because they wouldn't believe you. If I told them that their cereals with skimmed milk and bread with light cheese is bad for you they would just look at me like I was an idiot.

Then I have realized that just because something has been consumed forever and being used daily in our lives, doesn't mean is it good for us. Like fluoride tooth paste!

Sometime ago I read this little line, and it has really help me, imagine what a few words can do! I don't remember who said it, could have been Russel James,

Even monkeys fall
Which basically means, even though you're not perfect and have you moments when you eat sad food, pick yourself up and be good again, don't make one failure lead to another, which I am really bad at, but I do really work on it, and if you have the same problems you should as well!

Good morning!

Went to the gym last night did body pump and body balance. I was so tiered when I got home and passed out on the bed pretty much straight away. Was starving when I woke up so I made myself a Chocolate smoothie, I soooo love these chocolate smoothies.

This is what I had in mine today, was AMAZING
Thick and creamy Chocolate smoothie
2 bananas
1 T Maca
1 T Mesquite
1 T agave
small handful of gojis
1 C water and ice
1-2 T cacao

Blend sprinkle cacao nibs on top and enjoy!

An interesting thought.
When it comes to training and raw food, it's always heaps of discussions. Whether you can eat 100% raw and still go to the gym, or do you get enough protein etc etc. Has it ever crossed your mind that people on a "normal diet" get all their protein from animal products and that however is very hard to digest, and not all that protein get absorbed by the body. When you eat a lot of raw vegetables, fruits, seeds and nuts you not only get natural protein but you get amino acids which in your body will create protein (if you eat all the essential ones of course, the one your body can't produce), a lot of raw foods contains all of the essential amino acids.

If you're worried about not getting enough protein increase the intake of these:
Sea vegetables such as spirulina, chlorella, dulse, wakame, nori etc.
Raw protein powder, I use Sun warriors biofermented brown rice protein powder
Hemp seeds, unfortunately I can't get them here in Australia :(
Nuts and seeds in general
Dark green leaf vegetables (contains a lot of amino acids)
Mesquite powder and gojiberries

Really focus on the green stuff :) It makes wonders. I tried yesterday with just adding chlorella to my water bottle, and I have to say it's not bad, doesn't have an over powered flavor. If you don't like everything you eat to be green and just wanna enjoy a fruit smoothie you can just make a bit extra smoothie pour the excess smoothie into a little glass add the greens to that, drink and then have your nongreen smoothie afterwards.
