Super yummy stuff!! I think this would be good in collard wraps or layered in between something. It's a tasty recipe.
It's morning here, got up at 3 am, wide awake so I went through some recipes and picked out ones that I think would be good and the ingredients readily available.
Just cut and juiced a wheatgrass shot. It didn't taste as sweet as yesterday but still very palatable.
I think anyone who can provide raw food on any level is great in my book and if you can support yourself doing it all power to you. It's a righteous move.
So many people seem to open restaurants and have no love of food. I can really relate to Renee getting excited about a new dish or something that turned out well.
Get this, my manager and I were talking about heading downtown to find someone to print the menus and signs and the next minute this graphic designer walks in off the street looking for work, 2 hours later we have the mock ups for the menus,signs,business cards and the bill/receipts.
Should be ready by the end of the week and we can open!
4 lime and coconut cookies
Herb and walnut pesto with crackers and dried cherry tomatoes
Pear and apple biscuits.
feel extremely clear headed. Not hungry or craving anything really just coffee.
Your welcome Rob!
Cai, I can totally relate to what you're saying!!! I saw this business as being huge from the beginning. Alissa's class really helped me to see that I could REALLY do this...AND, do it WELL!!! She is so incredible at what she does. I love the fact that she helps others to realize that having your own business is absolutely possible. Her meals at Grezzo were, to date, the BEST meals I've EVER, EVER tasted! I wish everyone could have had the privilege of tasting them.
Cai, I wish you SO much success!!! I know that, if you continue to love what you do, you'll be a huge success!
That looks yummy Queeny!!!!!! I feel like fasting tomorrow, so I'll be over on that thread. Hold down the fort till I get back!!!! :-)
Good Morning everyone.
Yesterday, dinner was a spinach salad with raw ranch and raw slaw.
I made the coconut/sesame/banana crackers that someone posted in the main form. I am curious how those turn out.
This morning, I got up and exercised (gasp). I am hoping that movement will enhance my metabolism and suppress my appetite. I shall see.
Today, I brought to work a couple bananas, a couple apples, an orange and chia seed pudding (coconut milk, chia seeds and raw coconut nectar). After getting to work, I realized that I forgot my sesame balls. That's really going to be hard to get through.
Good luck everyone.
Welcome back, Rob! I'm going to try those same crackers this week =)
Yesterday was another "off" day for me... I think just coming back from an exhausting week away (fun! but tiring) messed with me a little. I just wasn't all that hungry. Plus that scramble was FILL-ING.... lol I did look at many recipes to get some inspiration for the upcoming week. That was fun.
Here's yesterday's food...
Brunch (late in the day): Scramble (pictured above) & banana
S: Nuts & flax crackers
Dinner ... or was it just a late snack? ;) : Raw brownie with sliced banana and cinnamon
A strange food day, but today is shaping up to be more normal. Thank goodness.
Feeling very good indeed no cravings for junk food, no overeating. I feel that I am controlling my food and that the food is not controlling me. Feeling incredibly positive.
Rob tell us how the coconut crackers went. maybe a big green smoothie in the morning would stop you feeling hungry.
last night I had
Today I feel like a really big salad
I just took the sesame, coconut, banana crackers off the dehydrator. I like them. Sesame seeds have a bit of an interesting flavor, I think it works nicely in these crackers. I ended up using coconut flour instead of shredded coconut. (My coconut flour is coconut pulp left over from coconut milk-making dehydrated and then fluffed in the food processor. It's light and fluffy compared to shredded coconut - FYI). These "crackers" taste a lot like the raw cereal I but in the store (yummy stuff). I will probably use them that way. Pour some coconut milk over them - yum.
I ate the food I mentioned before. I just ate 3 banaas, a spinach salad with raw ranch, a handful of prunes, some of the coconut crackers, some carrots dipped in raw ranch, an avocado with sea salt and now I am munching on pistachios. I *may* be it for the day.
Getting through the day was hard without my sesame balls. I was very hungry. I don't know if it was the lacking sesame balls or the excersize. I guess I will see tomorrow.
That scramble thing looked really good. I'm kinda curious about it.
Anyway have a good one folks.
@ Rob: Great idea about the coconut flour, Rob. Am looking forward to trying the crackers.
Breakfast: Blueberry smoothie (blueberries, coconut butter, walnuts)
Snack: Pineapple and kale smoothie
Lunch: Raw cabbage soup (with bok choy)
Dinner: Leftover blueberry smoothie
Snack: Small handful of walnuts
I finished those crackers today. How fast they go is a good indication of how good they are. :)
Yesterday I did pretty good on raw food. Today, I could have better, but I will just buckle down tomorrow. I always have this yo-yo issue when I first start. It gets better so I am hanging in there.
You guys are doing great. You are an inspiration. :)
Hey Rob - just take it one day at a time - at least that's what I do. It seems to help. :) I have stomach issues that, while I would rather in a million years not have, really help keep me "honest" b/c if I eat poorly I get sick/in pain. It doesn't even take much for me - just some chips will do it. Ugh. So it's actually easier to eat raw (at least high raw) than not in my case. I'm trying to make this year - 2013 - as close to 100% raw as possible for me to really nip the stomach stuff.
Today was great - feeling good aside from a knee injury. It's aggravating b/c I am just finally getting back into being able to exercise fairly regularly & with intensity ... and boom, my knee is bugging me. Hoping it goes away quickly.
Breakfast: Strawberry & walnut smoothie
Snack: Apple & coconut butter smoothie
Lunch: Cucumber & ginger soup
Snack: Strawberry & walnut smoothie
Dinner: Tomato soup

I second what Queeny said Rob...one day/one meal at a time. You're doing great!!! So glad you're here!!!
Queeny's Smoothies sound SOOOO good!!!! I'm having leftovers from my raw Biz!!! I have 4 different menus, so week 1 (just finished) is my favorite week!
I'm meeting my family (sorta mini family reunion) for bowling tomorrow night. They will be having SAD Pizza, so I made a Raw Pizza for me to smuggle in...!!!! Shhhh!!! Don't tell anyone!!!! I know they will be vultures over me!!! Hehehehe!!!!
