A Blissful Week

My lovely new rattie friend Bliss is going wonderfully, she is LOVING all the scrummy raw vegan food she is getting - her previous owner was a lovely young girl who clearly loved Blass (previously 'Mitsy') very much but was feeding her the standard recommended pet shop food - which looks like small lumps of cardboard. Mmm, yum - cardboard! Not. She digs into green smoothies, fresh fruit, veggies, sprouts, nuts, seeds - everything I give her, she devours. It's like her tastebuds have suddenly been awoken! So cute.

I am absolutely digging into fruit at the moment too - it is all so delicious! Would you like to know my FLOG for today? First I'll tell you what I actually ate, then what it was turned into:

3 bananas
1 pear
1 mango
1 mandarin
5 apples
chinese cabbage
savoy cabbage
1 young coconut
young coconut water
1 heaping tsp cacao powder
1 carrot
1/4 red capsicum (bell pepper)
borage (grown in our garden - yum!)
mung bean and lentil sprouts
some zucchini

And all of these delicious things became:

-a big green smoothie
-chocolate mousse
-a salad with a dressing found in the e-book that can be downloaded here This is the e-book that I proof-read and received a $40 voucher for as a present (see my last post) - if you have any interest in raw food (or even if you don't! :-) it is sooo worth the very cheap $10 to download it. Full of great recipes. I made the Sweet Citrus Dressing which was really good but a little heavier than what I was after. It is HOT here! But I love the hot weather.

The salad is in the picture above, by the way.
Sorry this is short - have an awesome day!!

You are amazing!

I just bought another raw food book: Living Cuisine By Renee Loux Underkoffler. I really like it, She is not as militant as
some raw foodists, so it's a good intro for me.

Do you have a dehydrator?

Freedom, Congratulations on Bliss! She is so beautiful. I'm going to be stopping by more often as I'm going to try a raw diet in 2007! I'm counting on you to help me out with some delicious and easy recipes! Thanks for your inspiration.

Thankyou UV! Oooh, I'm jealous of you havin Renee's book - hopefully I'm getting another recipe book (or maybe 'Your Natural Diet', which is all about food combining etc) for christmas. I can kinda see why someone would see some raw foodists as 'militant' - I am about my own diet, but not in a way that causes me any displeasure, and I'm much less so with others, especially anyone who only wants an intro like you - any amount of raw is good in my opinion!

Yes, I indeed do have a dehydrator, in fact I just bought a brand new one!! Check out my last post, I think I mentioned it there.

Jennifer, good to see you back blogging after your break, sorry about the tree on your house!! And thanks for the congrats, Bliss is indeed a beautiful little girl. I can't wait to hear how your raw diet goes in 2007, I'm SOOO glad I've inspired you and I know you will have an absolutely awesome (or should I say rawsome!) time. I'm always here for recipes or other tips!!
