Quick and Raw

So, I won’t be spending too much time here, because I am starting a raw food challenge with two of my Twitter peeps, @Hungry_hippie and @AddyB123. Right after Christmas, @Hungry_hippie put out a tweet seeing who might be interested in doing a raw food challenge, and we’ve spent the past three weeks or so planning by sending recipe websites and food ideas back and forth.

Eventually, we settled on 1/14 as the day for us to start, and so today, I’ll be a food-shopping, bean-sprouting, meal-planning fool. The Blonde has a few jars of  out to sprout as we speak, and I have what appears to be a pretty good white gazpacho recipe that I’ll toss into the Vita-Mix.

Sprouting, Sprouting beans, sprouting grains, sprouted grains, sprouted beans, faro, quinoa, green lentils, red lentils, wheat berries, sprouting wheat berries, sprouting lentils

From left to right, sprouting wheat berries, green lentils, quinoa, green lentils (again), and red lentils.

We’ve also started planning our visit to Great Sage next weekend to wrap up the raw-ness. I’ll also be straight-up stealing recipes from VeRAWnica’s blog where she is mostly raw, and Choosing Raw, where there are a bunch of resources.

So, I know this is a short one, but, without further ado, when I wake up tomorrow, my oven will stay off for seven days!

Wish me luck!

  2. […] this has been something of a mess lately. As you recall, I went raw for a week, and then proceeded to not discuss anything for 2 […]
