the last five months, i've been exploring raw food/superfoods. i'll never switch completely to raw food, but i'm all with the idea of keeping the nutrition value as high as possible by processing the food as little as possible. and wow - the sweets of this diet is amazing! i'm completely hooked on raw cacao. i think i'll have to post some recipes soon, you really have to try it.
in the morning, i usually make myself a big mix (500 grams) of vegetables and salads mixed with some grapes, avocado, seeds and bits of organic parmesan. i eat about half of this for breakfast, then have the rest for lunch along with a soft boiled egg or a cracker. alternatively, i'll have a smoothie for lunch.
this here smoothie consists of fresh spinach, pomegranate seeds, sprouts, a little bit of broccoli, frozen berries, mango, freshly juiced apple and carrot, and a dose of spirulina powder, shelled hemp seeds, goji berries, flax-, pumpkin-, sunflower- and sesame seeds. there wasn't need for any extra liquid in this one, but if there were, i would use additional apple juice or rice milk.
and the taste? let's just say that you've done something right when your kids consider spinach smoothie to be a snack :)
