raw vegan 'n such (:



These are just a few of the delicious vegan dishes that we have been eating lately. With a large amount of our daily meals and snacks dedicated to raw foods, we are slowly shaping our eating patterns and becoming more healthy (: In an attempt to stay focused I have been photographing each beautiful dish, giving me a sense of purpose that goes beyond the initial quest for health and longevity ;-)
From the top:
~ spring mix salad with nasturtiums, dried cranberries, clementines, slivered almonds and my own homemade vinaigrette
~ banana-strawberry smoothie
~ mango-orange-spinach smoothie
~ spring mix salad with raspberries, dried apple pieces and homemade vinaigrette
~ strawberry-banana-chard smoothie and german rye toast with raw almond butter, slivered apples and cinnamon
~ muesli with rice milk and bananas
~ vegan quesadillas (soy cheese) and homemade pico de gallo (cherry tomatoes, onion, cucumber, salt and pepper
~ Kale smoothie, german rye toast with raw almond butter and banana slices, and mango-cucumber-cilantro-avacado-lime salad (:
~ Vietnamese-style spring rolls with loads of veggies and spicy raw almond sauce
~ toast with apples and almond butter again, and a couple medjool dates
~ fruit and chard smoothie, salad with tomatoes, bell peppers and sprouts, and vegan mashed potatoes
~ raw vegan sushi rolls and green tea
~ raw vegan sushi rolls, a lettuce leaf with veggies and dressing on top, and a fruit salad of bananas and berries
~ the makings for sushi rolls (:
~ sprouted grain cereal with berries and rice milk
~ banana-strawberry-blueberry-peach salad with a touch of agave nectar
~ mango and slivered almond salad
~ mango-almond-dried fig salad
I cannot say enough how wonderful I feel when most of what I consume in a day is whole, raw, vegan food. I have more energy, I have lost weight and my skin looks healthier...I have to be honest though; It has been pretty hard to stay on this path lately, what with all the packing, cleaning and preparing, plus the extreme exhaustion due to inadequate sleep, it's all to easy to break down and order pizza! I cannot wait for some peace, or at the very least, the end of all this packing of boxes. It's a very intense time. Isabella is really sad to leave her friends. Jason and I are so busy that we hardly even 'see' one another ~ I mean that in the spiritual sense. Hmmmm...deep breath (: Jude is finally asleep. I will have some fruit and water and indulge in some quiet time.
