Ok, Sunday was a GOOD day in raw food land! I made an absolutely delicious green soup modified from Earth mother’s Clear Green Celery Soup recipe: http://earthmother-intheraw.blogspot.com/search/label/soup. It contained:
1/4 white onion
1 tbsp (2 cloves) diced garlic
3 stalks celery
1 handful cilantro
1 handful dill
juice from 1/2 lime
I creamed everything together in a blender, then garnished with dill and pine nuts. It was so smooth, creamy and tasty! Alyssa ate a whole bowl!
Then I decided to try a raw sweet potato pie recipe based on the recipe here http://livelifeveg.com/raw-pumpkin-pie/
I used sweet potatoes, but found the spicing to be too heavy for my taste.
In fact, I remade the recipe two additional times and put in no spices before I was able to get the spicing down to where we liked it. I put 1/2 of the spiced filling in the second time and only one large scoop in the third time. I know spicing is an individual thing, but this seemed really strong in the original recipe.
We also had a delicious berry and kiwi fruit salad and a chocolate rice milk, strawberry, banana smoothie for breakfast.
All very yummy!
Alyssa’s observations: Much better than yesterday. I finally found something I like. The soup was good! The pumpkin pie was an adventure, but it turned out well.
