Raw sandwich and raw chocolate spice date cake
I had a raw meal today, consisting of avocado and red pepper on fig bread (pictured) and a pint-glass of a fresh vegetable juice made out of… pretty much everything I could find (not pictured… it was ugly).
Raw bread is absolutely delicious, and it really does seem to fill my desire for something “bready” with my avocados. I can’t wait to try it with raw tahini and almond butter, plus interesting salads, guacamoles, what have you. I even have some sprouted chickpeas I might make a raw hummus out of – though I’m not 100% raw yet, so this would be just for fun (I know…).
Afterwards I made myself a new, one-serving date cake very quickly to have with my tea before getting back to work, because I’m worth it:
Here’s an inspiration-not-instruction ingredient list. For instructions on how to make a date cake, click here.
Large amount of cocoa – I used a heaped teaspoon for this small patty and it was just perfect
Generous amount of ginger
A fair note of cinnamon
Orange peel (served on top – originally for the sake of a pretty photo, but it was delicious – add a bit more than I did).
That was lovely 🙂 I’m conscious, though, that cocoa isn’t the healthiest thing in the world… I felt a bit irritated in the stomach and low in energy after. Sucks. The same for the tea. I’ve been meditating in my food and how it makes me feel, and often what my mind thinks I should want my body doesn’t; I think I’ll bit by bit be cutting down on tea and chocolate, just as I’m cutting down on cooked food. (Coffee, another caffeine-containing irritant, is long gone from my diet. Love the flavour but my body rebels).
