Noodle Dish and 38th Day Raw...
Yep, today is my 38th day eating 100% raw foods. This week at the grocery store I didn't buy any avocados. I am trying to cut back on eating so many mostly as an experiment into the 80 10 10 way of eating :-). I did buy bananas, cantaloupe, strawberries, 2 thai coconuts, grapefruit (box of 56 for ten bucks), minneola oranges, lemons, pink lady apples, tomatoes, zucchini, celery, broccoli, mushrooms and cucumbers. I made this chinese style noodle dish for lunch today. I found it to be tasty and filling. I kind of combined two recipes I have made in the past (my chinese food recipe with my spaghetti recipe to make this). I still have been making green juices about five times a week, in fact I need to make my daily green juice soon for today :-).
So, yes I do like eating raw foods but I will be honest sometimes I do have cravings for other foods. However, I like the benefits of eating raw so I use mental power to overcome cravings for the most part. Plus I am enjoying the food I am eating. I never go to bed hungry, I always feel satisfied. Last night Emily (Stephen's girlfriend) made raw banana ice cream. Let me just say WOW, I loved it!!! I can't believe I have been a raw foodie for so many years and never made banana ice cream! Well, after eating some I froze ten bananas last night and today for dessert I made my own banana strawberry ice cream! Let me just say it was awesome!!! I don't have a picture because I ate it too quickly but I will be making it again soon and will supply the recipe :-).
Well, that is all for now, a new post I am planning on writing this week is all about natural beauty / body products! Look for that soon and enjoy this recipe!
Ingredients - 1 zucchini, 1 tomato, 1 orange, 2 heads broccoli, 1 package of mushrooms, 1 shallot, 1/4 cup of honey
Directions: Make your zucchini noodles with a spiralizer, or veggie peeler. Chop up your broccoil, shallots, and mushrooms and let them marinate in the honey with a squeeze of fresh orange juice. Place this mixture into the dehydrator for 3 hours at 115 degrees. When done put the broccoli mushroom mixture over the noodles. Finally, make a sauce out of the tomato and orange blended in the vitamixer and pour this on top. Eat and enjoy!
