Raw Days Five and Six
Tonight I made raw soup!
From "The Complete Book of Raw Food" which I think I just may buy:
Makes 8 cups. It says prep is 20 minutes, but I'm not sure where they get that from...it took me like 3 minutes. I made a half-sized batch.
2 medium-sized red or yellow bell peppers (I used an orange pepper. Gotta be unique.) chopped
2 medium cucumbers, chopped
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
1/4 cup cold pressed olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp caraway seeds (I used ground caraway seeds...seemed like a better choice)
A friend of mine, who is a beginner raw foodie, is going through the emotional side of things since going raw. Apparently it's common--when the body purges/detoxes, so do the emotions, which I find interesting.
Tomorrow will be my first 100% raw day. I'm having raw "oatmeal", aka 1 tbsp flax seeds soaked overnight, and blend with a whole apple, a bit of almond milk, and cinnamon. I'll add some flax meal too, and some nuts, 'cause I like it! I'll be having 3 smoothies during the work day, chock full of goodness, and the soup I just told you about. Dinner I think will probably be raw nori rolls, since I have a 1/2 avocado which needs to be used up.
On to Raw Day 6!
