my delicious life in recipes

This morning for breakfast I had a DELICIOUS green smoothie:


Breakfast of Champions Smoothie (makes enough for three)(not my photo - thank you, Internet)

large bunch kale
2 cups strawberries
3 bananas
2 cups water
large slice of lemon with peel
1 Tbs honey
2 Tbs bee pollen

Later for dipping fruit, I made some

Chocolate Frosting

1/3 cup semi-soft pitted Medjool dates
1/4 cup honey
1 ripe avocado
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla

Blend in food processor until creamy.

For dinner tonight, we're having Raw Pad Thai, since we're having a raw potluck in our common house tonight.

First I marinated some mushrooms:

Marinated Mushrooms (Adapted From The Raw Food Detox Diet by Natalia Rose)

10 oz crimini mushrooms, diced
1/2 c balsamic vinegar
6 Tbs olive oil
6 Tbs maple syrup

Pour over mushrooms and marinate 2 hours - 2 days. I marinated for the day until dinner time.

Then I made:

Raw "Peanut" Sauce (From The Raw Food Detox Diet by Natalia Rose)

1 cup raw and creamy almond butter
2 tablespoons fresh ginger (I used one)
1/2 cup water (to thin)
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
3 tablespoons coconut aminos
4 teaspoons sesame oil (optional)
2 to 3 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 jalapeƱo pepper (I omitted this, as we don't like spicy)

Blend all ingredients at high speed until smooth.

I then grated 2 carrots, spiralized 2 zucchinis, finely chopped 1/4 cup cilantro, and diced one red bell pepper

I will toss the sauce over this mix and add the marinated mushrooms on top to serve.

What a delicious, delicious life!
