A couple things I've noticed the last couple of weeks - first, I know it's only been two weeks, but the last two weekends I have had so much energy. I am amazed at how much that I am getting done on the weekends. The weekends feel a lot more satisfying than they did before.
Today, I made two batches of raw tacos (shells, cheese & "meat") a batch of zucchini hummus, and have some nuts in the dehydrator that I'm going to candy later tonight. I decided to use Ani Phyo's recipe which has agave, sea salt, cayenne, cardamom, nutmeg. The recipe is for pecans, but I wanted to try a mixture of nuts so I am doing pecans, almonds, brazil nuts and cashews. I am not sure what cardamom tastes like. I hope I like it. I also am not sure if I have nutmeg. Hmmm ... these'll be interesting. I do have pumpkin pie spice ...
Oh, and today I also made a Cucumber salad. Raw Food Talk has a "party" to showcase a particular vegetable every Sunday. Today, I made the cucumber salad recipe from the Rawvolution recipe book. It's a pretty simple recipe but tasty - sliced cucumbers, dill, red onion in a blended dressing of apple cider vinegar, olive oil, lemon, salt and garlic. It was a nice spring day today and this dish hit the spot at lunchtime. Very tasty!!
I'm really looking forward to my juicer coming. I ordered it from DiscountJuicers.com - since they are in California and I'm in the NYC metro area, I'm guessing it will probably take a week to come. I'm hoping it comes before next weekend ... I'd love to test it out and do a bit of juicing next weekend.
