Hey Everyone! Happy Tuesday! I've been wanting to incorporate more raw foods into my diet, so I am going to try my hand at eating raw until supper time. I figure I'll eat one cooked meal a day, and I'll do that for supper. I did this a while back for a week and felt great while I was doing it. I'm hoping this will give me more energy and help me to not feel so sluggish all the time. I was going to start my new diet on Monday, but I wasn't really prepared, so today is the day. To keep me on track with the eating raw, I think I'll try something a little different with my posting for a while. I would like to post what I eat for the day. I think this will help me to stay on track better.
Yesterday while I was at work I had some raw sunflower seeds and almonds soaking, so I could make Jennifer Cornbleet's "Not Tuna Pate'" from her Raw Food Made Easy cookbook. I made this once before and thought it was good, but it is way better this time...not sure why. I must have left something out of it the last time I made it. The pate' consist of raw almonds, raw sunflower seeds, water, lemon juice, salt, minced celery, minced onion and some fresh parsley. So, for lunch today I had a "Tuna" wrap with Romaine lettuce, carrots, alfalfa sprouts, and yellow Roma tomatoes (they just happen to be hidden under the pate). Very tasty lunch.
We grilled out last night for supper. Everything we ate was grilled with the exception of the Teriyaki pasta. We had some more jalapeno poppers, zucchini, and Tony grilled me some BBQ Tofu. I've never had grilled tofu, so we both were just praying that the tofu wouldn't fall apart on the grill. To my amazement Tony made it turn out perfect! I pressed the tofu for about 30 min then sliced it into 8 slices, and put some BBQ sauce on it. I used some Sweet Baby Rays that we had already opened in the frig. The BBQ sauce probably stayed on the tofu for about 30 minutes before the tofu actually hit the grill. I think Tony ended up grilling it about 7 minutes on each side. It turned out delicious! Do you ever grill tofu? If so, what's your favorite way to grill it?
Most of you know that I went to Whole Foods on Saturday, since we were in Memphis for Tony's birthday. I went crazy with those bulk bins they have. I stocked up on a lot of stuff! I left sad though. I looked so hard for pretzel rolls and pretzel bread, but they didn't have any. I always see Shens and have been wanting to try it for a long time. Oh well, maybe they will have it the next time.
While we were in Memphis, Tony decided that he wanted to go by the Harley dealership....BIG mistake!! He apparently found his birthday present. Too bad we had to leave it there. I would love for him to be able to get a new bike, so I can be more comfortable. :o) Maybe he'll get to get one soon.
