1 Day after my 1 year being on a Raw Lifestyle

This was my today's fabulous lunch.I don't usually eat my lunch,and that's because I almost always drink my lunch.I made the this because the soup is my last nights leftover.
The avocado dip your typical,avocado,tomato,onion,lemon,sea salt mix.My crackers are from yesterdays A.M. juice that I made.My crackers were made from:beet,1 lg granny smith apple,carrots,lemon,ginger,and garlic salt,dehydrated onion red pepper flakes ,sea salt,dill,cranberries.And I am sure a few more spices I forgot about.Here is the soups recipe:
Red Pepper and Hemp Soup

2 extra large (or 3 regular) red peppers, seeded and roughly chopped
½ cup hemp seeds
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp lemon juice
½ tsp curry powder
¼ tsp turmeric
1 tsp Braggs liquid aminos
Black pepper to taste
2/3 cup water (or to taste – this will depend on how thick or thin you like your soup)
Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. You may want to begin with ½ cup water and adjust based on texture as you go along!

1 (ONE year ) since I started eating RAW foods

PhotobucketThis was one of my first recipes I ever made and it still is my favorite dessert of all time when I want a small munchie at night ;-)Here’s a delicious raw vegan donut hole recipe. Naturally sweetened with whole dates, and flavored with vanilla. Plus, coconut, which is a great source of eletrolytes.
1 cup almonds, dry
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 vanilla bean, scraped or 1 teas.Vanilla Extract
1 cup dried pineapple
chopItalic1 cup pitted dates
5 Tablespoons dried shredded coconut

MY raw life~I love it

I am proud to say that I am excited to say I started eating raw 1 year ago today.I first started out with green smoothies every day switching out the greens like kale,spianich,swiss chard and adding different things to make my smoothies sweet and tasty.I just added my favorite dessert in the photo section with Ani's Donut Holes My biggest problem at first was finding something I could eat and be satisfied with around the 8 pm hour.For some reason that is my bad time for a sweet treat.So I try and have a RAW DESSERT made item to keep me happy OR just have a big apple.That works for me too.I am loving raw and now that I am going itnto my second year eating raw I am adding lots of exercise,well a minimum of 1.5 hours at my YMCA.See I bought a pedometer and since we all should be getting 10,000 steps in a day,I felt I better put that rule into action.So that is my new thing Exercise.Oh Man

Truly a miracle.Two years ago I was told this mole is nothing to worry about.Now I was a tad worried.Unless the body was curing itself! The mole looking thing on my breast was called Seborrhoeic keratoses.Gone, no signs that it ever was there.Cured by eating raw!So after 3 months at that time eating raw I added wheatgrass into my A.M about 3-5 days a week and after a few weeks that is when the Seborrhoeic keratoses left my body.Some of you have heard this story ,but its worth sharing.
