Here are some highlights from the last few days:
Raw Foods Pizza with Sprouted-Grain Crust
This crust is AMAZING. It has great texture and the flavors of sun-dried tomato with Italian Seasoning and honey are fab.
Sauce - Tomato marinara sauce, which I've made before for zucchini pasta. This time it tasted different. I thought it was better. Maybe it was a better tomato.
Cheese is Pine Nut Cheese. I was low on pine nuts so I added extra cashews.
Toppings: Red bell pepper, onion, and parsley
Raw Swiss Muesli / Breakfast Cereal
Yum! What a tasty and quick breakfast. I'm not sure why I didn't try this one out sooner.
This is kind of a combination of the two above linked recipes.
1/4 c. Rolled oats (which I've learned are actually steamed so not technically raw, but I'm not going to be legalistic about things), sunflower seeds, and walnuts with
1/4 c. Walnuts
1/4 c. Sunflower Seeds
1 T Lemon Juice
1 T agave
1 t ground flax seed
1 t hemp protein powder
Mix together and add fruit!
Thai Iced Tea
SO good. I didn't have star anise, so I threw in a little bit of allspice and cardamom. This has fantastic flavor!!
- 4 tablespoons agave nectar
- 1½ cups black tea, brewed
- 1 cup Almond Milk
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- ¼ teaspoon star anise powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 cups ice
- Pour agave nectar into the black tea.
- Stir in the almond milk, orange juice, star anise, vanilla, and cinnamon.
- Serve in two tall glasses. Put 1 cup of ice in each glass and pour the tea mixture over the ice cubes.

Not a fan. I was really craving some citrus and a margarita. I thought this would be a good alternative.
The agave overpowered the lemon far too much. (I used 3 T since generally I like agave.) I think I would have preferred no sweetener at all!
I went from the initial 1/4 c lemon juice to 3/4 c lemon juice and added more ice, but the agave was still too strong.
I'll try a variation of this in the future. Maybe with limes next time.
