as promised, i took lots of pics (and jacked some of carmi's) of our raw week with Carmella and Don from the Raw Freedom Community and The Sunny Raw Kitchen.
this juice is just one of the delighful, energizing treats we woke up to every day during their stay.
it was non-stop delicious, healthy, colorful raw food.
take a lookie at some of the yummies!
Raw Vegetable Miso Soup
Broccoli in Hoisini Sauce with Parsnip Rice
i found this recipe on the Raw Freedom Community forum. i had lots of broccoli and parsnips in the fridge so i decided to prepare it for don and carmella's arrival. although dehdrating broccoli does not smell too pleasant, this meal was scrum-diddly-umptious. will definitely make again!
i'm not much of a hostess and didn't have any dessert for my guests, but that wasn't a problem with the raw genius carmi in the house! she quickly whipped up a chocolate berry mouse with an avocado base. mmm mmm mmm was it good! and gorgeous to boot!
we went shopping and scored some young coconuts at an asian market for just $1.29 each! don demonstrated how to open them and get the goodies out.
i had my first taste of fresh coconut water - i'm hooked!
marinating the veggies in the dehydrator makes them seem as though they are cooked, but with much more flavor and crispiness. i can honestly say this was the best fajita i've ever had, and i've eaten in mexico and southern california quite a few times!
the wrap was so tasty and pliable. to make, carmi followed this recipe.
dessert was a delectable Banana Split with Heathy's Strawberry Ice Cream and Chocolate Sauce. as they say in the raw food world, it was to LIVE for!
Asian Style Veggies with Rice Vermicelli and Zucchini Pasta
Yum Yum YUM!!!
this was the first time i've had rice vermicelli, and definitely not the last!
Coconut Cream Pie from the lovely Sweet Gratitude dessert book.
i was never much of a sweets person, but raw desserts has sure changed that!
well, it's time for nighties, but there's more to show you
so stay tuned for part two of our yummy adventure!
