Raw food Wednesday 1

Could this day be better! I was in bed all day relaxing, reading and eating! Well the husband wasn’t home since he had been on a one day trip to Atlanta. That just gave me an extra advantage to laze around! When i finally dragged myself out of bed, I made myself a Raw breakfast- An Almond Oatmeal smoothie:

The blend:

1/2 cup overnight soaked Rolled oats

1 banana

1/4 cup almonds

1 strawberry

Onion

Celery

Spaghetti sauce

Salt+ pepper

Egg noodles

Italian seasoning

I liked it was pretty filling!

Raw food snack 1: Raw chocolate chip cookies

Raw food Dinner:

My appetite has been weird today and during dinner I was least interested in a whole meal. I was craving a smoothie again so I listened to my body and made myself one:

Pineapple

Strawberry

banana

Oatmeal( This makes it so filling)

1 cup almond milk

This was my glass, it was seriously a fantastic one!

So the raw food deal: Breakfast , a snack and Dinner!

( Recipe adapted from Dani’s website)

1 cup sweet potatoes

2 tsp cumin seeds ( optional)

1 jalapeno seeds removed and chopped

1/2 tbsp ground cumin

Cooked spaghetti

Cilantro and red chili flakes for garnishing

EVOO

Salt and pepper to taste

Add the oil to a skillet and then add the cumin seeds and jalapeno. Don’t let it get very hot, otherwise the heat from the Jalapeno will make you cough!

Add the sweet potatoes and add about 1/4 cup of water. Cover it with a lid and cook it until the potatoes cook.

Add the pasta , season and then  mix for about 2-3 minutes.

Finally Garnish with cilantro and red chili flakes!

Ready to eat!
