Well, I hate to say it, wait actually, I am not, I am thrilled to say that I AM NO LONGER TRYING TO BE RAW OR FOOD COMBINE and it feels MARVELOUS!!!! More on why in a future post :)
Tell me, was there a better way to initiate this than with a Hugh Jass from Whole Foods? I think not!!!
- grilled eggplant
- 2 kinds of hummus
- wheat berry salad
- tons of garlic cloves
- green beans
- sugar snap peas
- and a bunch of other shit served over a bed of spinach
I celebrated with my buddy Kim and her little kids and I was thrilled that she was eating for the first time at Whole Foods with me!! Check out her monster....
She didn't even make a dent and left with a box. What a Whole Foods Rookie!!!! lol
My Whole Foods loot...
- ww pie shells (for a raw brownie pie, I know I was to lazy to make the raw pie shell, plus I am rebelling!!)
- frozen cherries
- brown rice vinegar (for no reason)
- goats milk yogurt
- unsweet ketchup
- red sweet potato
- huge thing of tilapia
- cookies and cake for the little one and the man
- coconut butter (THANKS SO MUCH KIM!)
- grape kombucha (by far my fav)
Can I just say DO NOT go serious shopping with 3 kids under the age of 4 that have never been socialized in any type of school! hahaha
The bag I bought for my loot...
All my stuff fit perfectly in the bag. Its all pretty self explanatory...
After a long a day of shopping the little one zonked out and the man went straight from work to a Fantasy Football Draft Party (BLAH!!). I was alone and decided to put one of my ideas into action :). I present you with RAW BROWNIE PIE....
It was so simple to make. I basically took Averie's recipe for raw brownies and put it in a pie shell. Here it is laid out the best I can do (I didn't really measure)...
- .95 lb of dates
- .95 lb of walnuts
- about 1/2 cup Hershey's dark choc cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup agave nectar
- stevia to taste
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- tiny bits of water to blend
- 1 pre-made pie shell or 1 recipe raw pie crust
Then spread it in the shell the best you can (its a sticky little booger) I must warn you, it is quite messy...
I held out, refrigerated and enjoyed a piece this afternoon with my left over sushi from lunch...
CONFESSION OF THE DAY: I am horrible at doing laundry. I mean if its stained you might as well toss it horrible!! I need tips ladies??? Bring them on please!! How do you separate your loads?? Anything special you do for stains?? How do you keep your whites from getting dingy? What about washing tennis shoes?
