Imperfectly Raw Day 28, Wednesday, 9/15/21

 Imperfectly Raw Day 28, Wednesday, 9/15/21

Today was raw foods Wednesday.  This group meets at our house on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.  I made my coffee and then got to work making food and getting the house ready.

I made a Taco Salad using this recipe:

Salad Part:  1-2 heads romaine lettuce, 1/2 of a red onion, 1 cup chopped tomato, 1/2 sliced avocado, 1/4 cup chopped olives (I served on the side), 1 Tbsp. minced jalapeno (also served on the side), and 1 cup chopped cilantro.  Toss together in a large bowl.

Taco Meat:  1-1/2 cups walnuts, 1 clove garlic, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp parika.  Process together in a food processor until the consistency of taco meat. Add taco meat to salad and toss.

My other special dish was a Carrot Cake.

Cake:  1 cups chopped carrots, 4 dates, 4 dried figs, 1/2 cup raisins, 1/4 cup shredded coconut, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp allspice

Frosting:  2 cups almond yogurt, 4 dates, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, 1/4 tsp salt, 3 Tbsp. cashews.  Blend in high speed blender on high until smooth and creamy.

We had a wonderful turnout this time at raw foods.  We didn't have a speaker this month, but this is a knowledgeable group fully capable of teaching each other.  Star shared some information on a company called puro3 that offers ozonated oils.  These oils are used topically.  Check them out here

For dinner tonight I didn't feel like preparing anything so we ordered pizzas from Dominos using their $5.99 each deal.  I got a veggie pizza.  Only two toppings allowed on the special deal so I got onions and tomatoes.
