I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I just wanted to give an update on how my partial raw day was going for a Saturday.
First, for supper Friday night I made some black eyed peas and collard greens. I added a little chopped onion, one clove of minced garlic, salt, pepper and 1/4 teaspoon of garam marsala. I would have added more garam marsala, but I was cooking for my mom too, and she doesn't like spicy foods. I also sauteed some asparagus in a tad of olive oil. I then added some Herbamare and lemon juice. The purple stuff on my plate is a purple sweet potato. I cubed the potato up and then boiled it. After the potato was done, I drained the water and added a little coconut milk and cinnamon. It was okay, but was lacking something...not sure what though.
Friday when I got home, I had this new book waiting on my doorstep for me. It was recommended by Maud at Food Feud. I wanted a simple raw book to start out with, and this one is perfect. Now I just need to get some raw nuts, so I can make some of the awesome sounding recipes in this book. :o)
Of course for breakfast this morning I had another smoothie. This one was a remake of yesterdays with one adjustment....no frozen mango. YUM!
For lunch today I had banana almond butter mash. I'm not posting the picture, because it looked pretty nasty. I've been busy today doing house work, and didn't want to take the time to make a salad or wrap. So, I just decided to take a banana and mash it up with some almond butter to tide me over till supper. I wasn't really that hungry anyway, but I did need a boost for more energy.
For supper I made burritos. My burrito consisted of a spoon full of left over spinach/mushroom risotto (I know...sounds odd, but was great), refried beans, sauteed mushrooms, bell peppers, lettuce, guacamole, and a sprinkle of vegan cheese. I think that's all I wrapped up in the whole wheat tortilla. It was so good. I think it's the best burrito that I have made so far. I was trying to recreate the one that I had at Tulum's a week or so ago. I almost nailed it. :o) I had some more guacamole and homemade green tomato salsa on the side with some chips. A very yummy supper.
