Alissa's NEW Book: RAW FOOD FOR EVERYONE -Daily LOG - PHOTOS included!!!!
ARE..... YOU..... REEEEADY!!!!!!!!
Hello, Hello, HELLO Everyone!!!!!!
O.k.!!!! It's time to start savouring Alissa's new creations in her new Book, RAW Food for EVERYONE!!!!
Here's what I'm planning to do: My family has decided to go RAW with me for the ENTIRE month of NOVEMBER!!!!!!! 100%!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, we are working our way through Alissa's new book and discovering new and delicious recipes that will keep my family eating RAW ****4EVER**** ;)
We actually started on November 1st, but I didn't have a chance to start this thread till now... But, I ***DID*** take photos from the 1st day to show you!!!!
I will also be making recipes from Alissa's 1st book, Living on Live Food, because there are certain Recipes that my family LOVES from there. But, I'll let you know when it's from LOLF or RFFE...
I will ***TRY*** to post daily, but I'm also homeschool and work as a flight attendant, so I may have to skip a day here and there...but I will take photos every meal!!!
O.KKKKK!!!!! So, let's get started:
NOVEMBER 1: DAY 1
We started off with Smoothies! Alissa has 50 Smoothies listed on page 180 - 181 of Raw Food for Everyone (RFFE). We made the Banana-Cacao-Date combination (but I used Carob). Here is my Son (age 12) putting it together:
My kids LOVE Carob! So I knew this was the one to start with!
Then, for snacks we had Fruit. I belong to a Co-Op, so I get my fruit and veggies from there 100% Organic! I try to but Organic when I can if I'm at the store. For lunch we were out and about, so we stopped at Salada and had a Gormet Salad with Sundried Tomato Vinegarette for dressing. The kids wanted Ranch, so they did have that. I'm NOT sweating the small stuff!!!!! If they want regular Dressing, so be it!!!!! I was SO proud of my Son! He did ***NOT*** have the Salmon he usually have on it and he didn't even miss it!!! My daughter is 8 and a HUGE carnivore, so having just a salad was HUGE for her!!!! We did add Avacado on it, so that filled them up pretty good! When I got home, I put some things in the Big "D" so that we can have more of a variety they next day....We also had fresh CARROT JUICE with it. My kids LOOOOOVE Carrot Juice!!!!
Here's dinner Day 1:
We made Alissa's Collard Rolls (LOLF) and Vegetable Nori Rolls (RFFE, page 245). My Son is allergic to Nuts, so I made the Collard Rolls for him!
I also fixed a Coconut Smoothie and used Coconut H2O, Coconut "Meat", Lime, Pineapple, and Sea Salt. YUMMY!!!!
stay tuned for day 2!
