Taking is slow and keeping it simple......

I tried this Thai Salad. It was ok, but I think I might not use the almond butter next time. I guess I am just not into the 'Peanut Sauce' taste. My husband asked me to add more honey to it and he finished it.

but it looks beautiful :)

Ok, here is another one that looks beautiful....lol Taste like crap! I was experimenting..trying to make a lighter mushroom burger. I think I need to season more next time.

Now this is a winner!!!! Yummmm! and so simple!!! I got this one from http://www.sarah811.blogspot.com/ , only I added pecans to the bottom of my pan. You got to try it. It was a perfect time for me to see this recipe, because my Dad just gave me a huge bag of Persimmons from his tree.

If anyone is reading my blog.....sorry I haven't been posting lately. To be honest I wasn't to happy after my last post. I really didn't enjoy any of the recipes I tried. I am trying more and tweaking as I go for my own taste. I did make some taquitos I liked. I will take pictures the next time I make them and post. I promise I will be back posting after Thanksgiving. Can't wait to see Thanksgiving post. I wont have one of my own, but next year I plan on having my own raw holidays. Not ready this year.

I tried a bunch of new recipes today. You will be seeing some of those tomorrow.

What I had today:
Smoothie- pineapple/blueberry/banana/strawberry/bee pollen

A huge Salad- romaine/purple cabbage/cauliflower/left over collard greens/cashew ricotta cheese/beets (not raw:steamed)
A little Chocolate Pudding with Cranberry Oatmeal Biscotti crumbled on top
Of coarse I was snacking all day on all the new recipes I tried. You have to taste what you make right?


I started off my day with a Smoothie
pineapple/blueberry/banana/strawberry/bee pollen

Then I had a Cup-O-Collard Greens
(I have this thing for bowls and cups ? Not into plates.)
Then I had some more Almost Raw Vegan Sushi
Lastly, I had some Chocolate Pudding with crumbled Biscotti....Yum!
Today was a good raw day!

I decided to focus just on the raw that I eat everyday. The important thing here is that I try to make new raw recipes as often as possible, while still eating simple raw foods the way they grow.

My raw for today:
I had Raw Chocolate Pudding. I tweaked the recipe so it wasn't as rich as last time. I liked it much better. I think I will tweak it once again the next time I make it. It is still a little to sweet for my taste.

I also experimented with some Raw Corn "chips". Basically they are just fresh corn with a pinch of salt, dehydrated into a chip. They work for Salsa, but they are a bit plain. I have made them before with flax and red bell pepper as well as cumin and chile powder. I think I will do that recipe again, but leave out the Bell Pepper. Not a big fan of the bell.

So far today I have been all raw. I had:

A plum

Raw Banana Oatmeal
Green Salad with Avacado and seeds
Didn't care for the dressing I made up. Wont do that again.
If anyone out there has a really good, simple creamy raw dressing that isn't sour, I would love to try it. Please send me the recipe.
Still full and not sure what I will have for dinner yet. Maybe just fruit or more Raw Pudding!!
I will let you know if I don't stay raw tonight.

Had a bad food weekend. My Dad came to visit and we made our yearly "traditional" Tamales. Hate to admit it, but I didn't pass them up. If any of you out there have a really GREAT tamale recipe that taste close as possible to the traditional ones PLEASE send it to me. I want to pass on the traditional ones next year.

Today I had:
Raw Chocolate Pudding for breakfast (yes, breakfast ;)
Raw Carrots
Green Salad

Dinner- In n' Out Burger

Might finish my pudding tonight.

Today I was busy cleaning my house. My Dad is coming for the weekend. My carpet was filthy. Both my husband and I had spilt tea and my dog...well she is a dog, enough said. Oh, don't get me wrong. She is house broken, it was just the usual dog dirt. Foot prints etc... Since I knew I would be busy all day cleaning (or as I like to call it, exercising) I made a lot of Strawberry w/Banana smoothie to drink all morning and some at lunch. Then I had a avocado. Dinner was cooked homemade 'mostly' vegetarian pizza.
