I made my first raw meal!
Green Beans w/soaked quinoa with a splash of soy & sesame oil
Green salad with chopped spinach & with a peanut/garlic/ginger splash
...Bean sprouts with a splash of soy & sesame oil
I am excited!
It was yummy. This meal I just ate is taking awhile to "hit" me, but I think it will be... filling & satisfying in about 10 minutes lol. I feel pretty hollow from this raw food cleanse (Day 3) but I know I am nourished.
This is very reminiscent of drinking soy milk and eating tofu for the first time- the texture of the raw soup is very different, and although I am sure I can get it tastier with each batch I make, it's still taking quite some getting used to. Wow.
P.S. I should have taken my pictures BEFORE I ate, but I was ravenous!
I will say this- when I set up this "raw food" challenge/cleanse I thought it would be easy. Then I started reading about raw food diets and the philosophy, and what a "live" food is defined as... and I quickly realized there is a lot more to this than I first suspected. I honestly have not felt like such a food moron since my early vegetarian days 20 years ago! Live and learn.
