I like trying new things. It’s the best way to figure out what you like, right? But sometimes, you just gotta come back to old–or new–favorites.
Doing the whole raw foodism thing for the past 2+ weeks has given me plenty of time for experimenting, and it’s helped me figure out what foods are my favorite. So lemme share them with you this WIAW!
Random dinner of romaine hearts, homemade guac, cilantro lime cauliflower ‘rice’ and dehydrated sweet potato fries.
Dehydrated Sweet Potatoes
Almost like baked fries but even better.
Carrot Cake Anything
Banana softserve+carrot cake (added in a carrot+raisins+coconut manna) = best
dessert breakfast ever.
Fruits and Veggies (of ALL kinds)
Whole Foods produce haul. This makes up at least HALF of my grocery bill.
More veggies in the produce drawer. Cauliflower, asparagus, rainbow carrots, jicama, kale, bell peppers.
Strawberries, blackberries, spinach and romaine.
Fruit bowl. Bananas waiting to ripen, mango, blood oranges, lemon, lime.
Beautiful blood oranges.
Zucchini fettuccine with easy marinaraw sauce (tomato paste+spices+date), olives, homemade pumpkin seed pesto and hemp seeds.
And zucchini rawsagsna. Layered with homemade marinaraw sauce, raw cashew cheez, kalamata olives and hemp seeds.
Valentine’s Day breakfast of cherry vanilla Sunwarrior chia pudding topped with coconut manna and homemade raw brownie bites.
Garden of Life mocha brownie batter chia pudding topped with fresh strawberries, coconut manna and raw brownie bites.
Sprouted Mung Beans
Just soak and marinate for a great raw protein source.
Kelp noodle ‘stirfry’ (adapted from Going Raw book) with rainbow carrots, spinach/arugula and orange bell pepper.
Avocado (in sweet things)
Avocado+Garden of Life+cacao mousse topped with coconut flakes and raisins.
Flax ‘pancakes’ topped with Garden of Life protein sauce, coconut flakes and frozen blueberries.
Even though I have a lot of favorites, one thing I love about being raw is getting such a variety of foods in every day. Instead of getting stuck in a food rut, I’m always excited about trying something new and mixing things up so I get in a variety of nutrients!
What are some of your ‘foods of the moment’?
