My raw eating journal. Day 1. Menu


Apple, banana, peach and lettuce smoothie.

Muesli balls

Easy and tasty, they are good for breakfast or as a treat with tea.

2 Handfuls of crashed walnuts,
2 handfuls each of chopped pitted dates and sultanas
1 cup of oats
2 tbsp water
*Please, note, all amounts are approximate, you have to measure and combine them according to your own taste!

Combine all the ingredients until the mixture forms, roll the mixture into a little balls.
Nice and easy!

First lunch

Eggless egg salad

A delicious and crunchy vibrant yellow salad! Also quite filling. I absolutely loved this recipe, this one is MUST cook again!
The recipe is taken form Matt Amsden's book "RAWvolution"
Serves 3 to 4.

In a high speed blender combine the water, lemon juice, turmeric, garlic cloves, salt and nuts and blend until smooth.
Combine the chopped veggies and the mixture from the blender in a bowl, mix well. Serve!

Mixed veggie salad wraps

This one is a quick one.
I chopped a few different vegetables into a bowl (tomato, capsicum, cucumber, garlic, spring onion, celery), grated some carrots, added a bit of avocado and wrapped the mixture in leaves of cos lettuce. Experiment with different vegetables, you can also add some raw nuts or seeds to the salad.
Quick and refreshing dinner!
