Introducing new people to new foods!

Busy at work......

Busy at work......

Everyday our lives are full of surprises, whether it is tripping over a rock, not stretching as far as yesterday, finding money you forgot you had, or receiving a smile from someone you thought never smiled!  A lot of my surprises come in the kitchen or at the store, and they mostly deal with food.

My current living situation is in a house where rooms are rented out on a daily/weekly/monthly basis.  Basically, I’ve met a lot of new people in the past month.  One beautiful girl in particular’s name is Elise.  She was inspired by my other raw roomies and I and decided to JUST DO IT!  She came home from work the other day and said, “I have big news!  I’m going raw!”

She has been super eager to learn more about raw foods and help out in the kitchen.  We worked together for the first time a few nights ago. She assisted with the chopping and mostly observing as I whipped together my Sunny Un-Tuna Salad.  I put together some Nori Wraps with the un-tuna salad, avo, swiss chard, sprouts, veggies, and love.

The creative layering inside the nori wrap....... beginning with a bright shiny leaf of swiss chard, followed by a mix of avos w/ lime juice and pink himalayan sea salt, next a few dollops of Sunny Un-Tuna salad, and finally some beautiful, juicy tomatoes!

Note: Raw nori is a vibrant living blackish, purple color.  A healing food for the crown chakra.  Raw nori differs from the common greenish roasted nori.

Raw nori is packed full of vital nutrients.  It is low calorie and low fat, and extremely high in nutrients, especially riboflavin, vitamins A & C, iron, calcium, zinc, iodine, and fiber. Nori contains as much protein as soybeans, in and easy to digest and assimilate format. It is also a good source of lignans which help fight cancer!

As always, I have to throw together something for dessert.  Thank you vita mix for grinding up the “A date with a Giant Peach” dessert!  This inspiration came from the beautiful fresh honey dates I found at Mana.  I blended a combination of coco meat, H2O, bananas, dates, peaches, mac nuts, cinnamon, and a wee bit of himalayen sea salt.

Creamy, peachy, datey goodness!!!!  Mmmmmm!
