With only six days left to go, my raw challenge finish line is actually within sight. Though I am certainly ready for the return of cooked food in my diet, today’s recipe really was a delight. Fresh, crunchy Romaine lettuce from last Saturday’s Trout Lake Farmers Market certainly elevated things, and I also opted to [...]
Posts under ‘Recipes-Raw’
If you happened to hear a loud thud in the last week, chances are it was the sound of me falling off the wagon. With only 13 days left to go, raw eating is really starting to lose its luster, and fast. It is becoming time consuming and downright antisocial. I want yogurt, goat feta, [...]
As the days tick by and I get closer to my ‘Raw Challenge’ finish line (September 8), my recipes seem to be getting simpler and easier to prepare. Summer’s bounty of fresh fruit and vegetables is certainly a contributing factor. Why mess with perfection? But one can not live on rabbit food alone. Protein remains [...]
Yeesh….. less than 1 month left to go. Will I be lost without my dehydrator and the frequent whirl of my food processor? Highly doubtful. But summer’s bounty continues to make raw dining not only pleasurable, but downright exciting.
Today’s recipe for ‘Tuna Tartare’ falls into the cro-magnon category, the same arena I touched upon back [...]
Raw Almond Milk
This week I promise to keep it simple. Way back in early June, nut milk was one of the very first items I mastered and incorporated into my raw repertoire. Not only is it quick, easy and inexpensive to prepare, it’s actually downright delicious. I now prefer it to cow’s, soy or rice [...]
Corn Chowder with Fresh Salsa
As I write this post, the wind blowing from the office fan is barely helping to cool my scantily clad, sweaty epidermis. Not that I’m complaining. Canadian summers are far too short. This week’s heat wave is a call to work less, swim outdoors, eat light and generally slow down the [...]
I’m now over half way through the challenge. With 47 days left to go, how do I feel? Really not that different. The 5 pounds I lost during the first 2 weeks have stayed off. I look the same. I feel the same. (o.k.- I guess that I’ve never been more, er- regular) I think [...]
If you ever need something rolled at a party, don’t look at me. And despite several determined attempts, I also remain a dismal sushi roller. But I shall continue to practice and, hopefully, sushi rolling mastery is soon to come. While my current maki creations are loosely rolled and full of air pockets, they are [...]
The cherry tree in our backyard is producing a massive amount of cherries this year- far more than usual. Even the birds can’t be bothered to stay on top of the tree’s fruit output. What do do? Put some in ice cream, of course. This recipe comes from last post’s ‘chocolate and banana + hazelnut’. [...]
I Scream. You Scream. We all scream for ice cream!
As far as food preferences go, I simply don’t have much of a sweet tooth. Desserts always seem interesting to look at, but I’m rarely tempted to actually eat them. Case in point- it is at day 39 that I am developing my first dessert recipe [...]
