This juice was so dang pretty, I didn't want to drink it. I just wanted to stare at it. I made it with myBrevilleand it contained 2 oranges (peeled), 7 smallish/medium carrots, big ol' knob of ginger. The orange and carrots made it pretty and the heavy ginger gave it some jazz. It was AWESOME! (I should have taken a picture of it.)
These were soaked, sprouted and dehydrated. They're a great source for iron and zinc. Yum! Zinc is important forfertility, especially male fertility!
Fresh Raw Zucchini & Cucumber Pasta
I spiralized zucchini and cucumber with myBenriner Turning Slicer(demonstrated toward the end ofthis video). I put it in a bowl and added fresh squeezed lemon juice,Himalayan crystal salt and black pepper. Then, I diced up red bell pepper and avocado (using thefruit scooperinthis videoto get all my avocado out), and threw that on top. Finally, I added fresh raw corn cut from the cob and tossed that in. My husband and I were loving up this fresh concoction.*NOTE:it's best to cut and use the juice from lemons right before serving (when possible) because from the moment of cutting, you start to lose the precious vitamin C... like, by the minute.
Buckwheat and Fresh Veggies
I mixed up a little cooked buckwheat with a bunch of fresh raw veggies and non sweet fruit and topped it with a fantastic raw sauce mixture of tahini, tamari, ginger, and other awesome flavorings.
I didn't have hazelnuts, so I used a mixture of hemp seeds, (soaked, sprouted and dehydrated) sunflower seeds, and (soaked and dehydrated) walnuts.*TIP:I have a ready supply of these gems in my freezer so I can quickly grab one whenever I want. That's one of the keys to succeeding with the raw vegan lifestyle. Have food on hand, already made, ready to eat. Trust me. When I'm going to a restaurant, I can grab my Raw dessert and stash it in my purse so when I get a craving for dessert, I can gobble up my secret treat. When I arrive home from a day of running errands, I like knowing that I can go to my countertop ready to eat snacks and enjoy a nutritious snack (things like garlic basil chia crisps, prunes, dates, sprouted / dehydrated sunflower and pumpkin seeds, goji berries, raisins, etc).
