Living in the Raw - Wednesday

My new store, Community Superfoods, opened today for the first time, from 4:30-7:00. It will be open just once a week, operating both as a storefront and a full-service discount raw food and superfood buying club for my clients, friends and local community. Thank you to the folks who came tonight, tasted Sacred Chocolate and purchased items! It was a pleasure to serve you!

Opening the store threw my schedule off a bit, as did my two-hour marathon cavity replacement and tooth rebuild at the dentist this morning. Typically I do not eat a big snack of raw halvah at 4:00 in the afternoon - but knowing that dinner would be just happened! Very yummy as a once in a while treat, and quite filling, hence the light supper at 8 PM. (Shhh! Don't tell Paul Nison.)

Here's what my raw repast resembled today:

water, herb tea
6 ounces Carrot-Celery-Apple Juice

one perfect peach, post dentist

Kelp Noodles (one package) gently warmed together with last night's Creamy Corn-Zucchini-Dill soup leftovers, to make noodles in creamy sauce. Garnished with nutritional yeast and a dash of tamari.
Dried Yacon slices

Instant Chocolate Halvah with Goji Berries

Directions: Mix a few spoonfuls of raw tahini with raw cacao, unhulled raw sesame seeds and raw honey or maple syrup until thick and creamy. Add goji berries, stir and prepare for blast off. :-) I ate this in reverie with a spoon, but it would be quite nice to shape the halvah into little balls or bars and roll them in sesame seeds.

Green Salad with Grated Carrots, Pink Beets, chopped Tomatoes and Guacamole
Lemon-Dijon-Flaxseed Vinaigrette

AM 20 minute dog & cat walk
PM crunches, squats and push ups
