One of my good friends posted this on Facebook recently. It was just what I needed to see, and believe!
Now, on to my favorite subject, which does give me energy, food! After watching the documentary, Average Joe on Raw, I was inspired to make this:
OMG, this is like eating apple pie with no fork! It is a snack that Paul Risse makes at the Barefoot Market in Stephenville, Texas, and it was served to Seth and his wife in the movie. I couldn't wait to check his recipes in his Small Town Raw Big City Taste book, and there it was! We made it for a snack, but it ended up being lunch. The link I attached for his book is actually a blog by Penni Shelton of Tulsa, and it has the link in it to get the book plus some great information about Paul.
I made two different juices. Isn't the color just amazing in juice?
I filled my dehydrator with two cracker recipes. One is a pulp cracker (carrot pulp from my juice) and the other is a cracker with a raw marinara sauce base. I am still trying to get the hang of dehydrated crackers. Maybe today will be the day!
Dinner was not only delicious, but one of the quickest meals I have made lately. I made the entire salad using my mandolin slicer. The dressing was created from the leftover Herbed Pesto sauce from a Herbed Pesto Linguine recipe that I made on Saturday.
Maybe the apple snack and the sliced salad will inspire you?
I guess for a down day,
I really did do a number of things!
