Our raw diet experiment is going extremely very well for us. Although I haven't lost any more pounds to date, I feel fantastic and energized. And I've become addicted to these for breakfast:
It's Green Lemonade. The recipe is from The Raw Food Detox Diet, which I borrowed from the library. I'm still trying to decide if it's worth buying, as it has some really good salad dressing recipes, but some other ideas that are kinda out there for my too-logical mind (colonics anyone? rebounders?). Anyway, to make Green Lemonade, juice a head of romaine lettuce, a few stalks of celery (or any other combination of greens), a lemon (no need to peel), and two apples. Tomorrow I'm going to attempt a Green Smoothie using my regular $20 blender. We're still pondering the really-expensive Vitamix, although most Green Smoothie makers on the internets seem to sing it's praises.
And as far as desserts, we're covered. These are Raw Brownies from Raw Food Talk (Alissa Cohen's discussion board).
They are topped with the MOST AWESOME vegan chocolate pudding ever. And it's raw to boot. I used cocoa powder (I'm still cleaning out the pantry) and only 1/2 cup of regular agave nectar. I made it again, in Chocolate Monkey form.
I would like to say that I made this just for Princess, but no, adults like to play with their food too.
And although I'm not normally one for liberally sprinkling the blog with gratuitous pet photos, I had to show our youngest waiting patiently for a slice of banana.
