For dinner tonight I made Pad Thai. I think it tastes pretty good. I have been making green juice every day like I said I would in my last post. I like doing this because I think it makes my hair healthier and shinier. My juices have consisted of celery as the base, apple, (and then I switch out between spinach, kale, and parsley). It is a good mixture because I am getting a lot of greens but the apple makes in pallatable. I am trying to eat 100% raw (the story of my life). This weekend I was feeling a bit out of sorts and moody and I automatically go for the comfort vegan foods. I made a menu for myself for the week to help me stay on track eating raw food. Some of the things on my menu are "mock tuna", spaghetti, flax crackers with guacamole, and veggie juice. I also have plans to get together with my good friend Maire-Lies and make raw Halloween goodies. Some of what we have planned are halloween sugar cookies with icing and Halloween shaped chocolates filled with organge and green fillings.
Pad Thai Recipe:
Noodles: 2 zucchini
(use a spiralizer or veggie peeler to make thin noodles)
Sauce: 1 cup of water, 1 cup of cashews, 3 table spoons of honey, 4 dates, pinch of sea salt, 1 lime, 1 teaspoon of fresh ginger, 1 clove of garlic, 1/8 piece of an onion (mix all of these ingredients together in a vitamixer until smooth).
Finally, pour the sauce onto the veggie noodles and garnish with chopped mushrooms and chopped green onions.
