Raw Breaky…

Thank you SO much for all your suggestions regarding lunch – I highly recommend you go back and check out the suggestions!

One of my favourite suggestions was to check out City Life Eats.  I have found SO much inspiration on Valerie’s blog.  I’m trying to make my way through the whole thing!

Her blog has inspired me to have some more raw foods in my life!!  This morning I made a raw breaky!

Swiss Chard wraps

3x chard wraps

slices of red pepper

cucumber

Nut cheese (see below)

Raw Nori

Wrap it all up and nom nom nom

I used more nori than this, but it didn’t look as pretty for the picture!

Nut Cheese

1/2 cup cashews (soaked at least an hour – I did overnight)

1/2 cup almonds

2 tsp lemon juice

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp nutritional yeast

1 TBSP sundried tomatoes

Blend everything in food processor until desired consistency

Done!!  It made enough for about 10 wraps!! (yay left overs!!)

Love it!! I’ll see what kind of staying power it has though!! It would be good in lunches too, as the wraps wouldn't’ get soggy.

 

More Raw Goodness!

Dawn from Raw Elements.ca sent me some samples of Sun Warrior Powder!  I was SO excited as I love adding stuff to my smoothies, but I’ve been burned a few times ordering a huge jar and not liking it!

So far I have tried the vanilla and the chocolate and I have to say I REALLY like this product!!  And even better – no tummy problems!!

The vanilla I put in a smoothie with strawberries, banana and water

The taste was subtle, but nice… usually rice powder is gritty, but this stuff wasn’t at all..

I tried the chocolate in a a mango smoothie with Chia seeds

Not pretty, but what can you do?! ha

I really liked the chocolate too, but I think I would order the vanilla because it’s more plain and you can always add cacao powder if you are craving chocolate!

Overall, I really like Sun Warrior!  I still have some left and I think I might make Amazeballs!

Thank you Dawn!!

Also, make sure to check out City Life Eats for a TON of inspiration!!

  7. I have developed a love for breakfast and I have many favourites ... vegan overnight oat parfaits are one of them.

    The hubby and I ate at a raw restaurant in NY, and it was really good!
