we've been sacking. We had DSS here last weekend so we slipped back to almost all cooked. And we both feel like crap. DD1 is more ornery too.
We have managed to juice at least a couple times a day though. I juiced the second half of a canteloupe last night.
So good! We've juiced a couple things like that that we wouldn't normally...like cucumber. It's kind of disturbing to see what color juice really is. So far the only thing that's been florescant was when I forgot to peel an orange before sticking it in there. Everything else is NORMAL colored.
I made some tasty avocado dressing last week. Here's the recipe:
1 large avocado
2 teaspoons olive oil (I know it's not iideal for a raw diet)
lemon juice (I juiced 1.5 lemons and it was a bit much for the qunatity I made...for the recipe I'd say .5-1 lemon)
Combine avocado and oil in blender and blend. Add in lemon juice and seasonings and blend until smooth.
It's more like a spread than a dressing. I needed something for some wraps I made. That recipe is:
lettuce leafs (any kind)
Shred cucmber, carrots, and radishes. After shredding mix together (I shred them all together and then stirred). Spread avocado mixture onto lettuce leafs. Spoon veggie mix on top of avocado. Either roll up or fold in half.
It ended up being a ton of veggie mix so you could easily do less. You'll want to strain it too. By the time I got the avocado mix on all the water settled to the bottom of the bowl and everything was watery. I used some of it later on a salad. Nice and tasty!
I posted in last months thread asking to see your raw kitchens. I saw on the other day that was to die for! It made me want a cool kitchen.
I took the stove top burners out and the took my cutting board out of the counter (slide in kind) and laid it on top of the stove. Even if we weren't going raw I think I would keep it there! So nice! I have so much more "counter" space because of it now. I stuck my pots and pans in the oven and used the cupboard they were in and took my fruit in bowls and put them in there. DD1 has access to them and I cleared up even more counter space.
