Today’s Raw Menu
Breakfast: Four Bananas
Lunch: Pear Celery Lime Smoothie
Dinner: Cucumber Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing and Creamy Zucchini Avocado Soup
I gotta say after four bananas, you’re not going to be hungry. The juice was awesome (see recipe below) and dinner? Well dinner was a whole lot of guacamole, in my opinion.
Stephane has always maintained that eating raw is eating dip. I can’t really argue when it came to the “soup.” I mean, avocado, tomato, limes juice, cumin, salt and pepper in the food processor. That’s guacamole, right? Oh sure, you’re allowed to heat it up a little. And I totally doused it with spicy Cholula sauce, and it tasted great but it was dip, not soup.
The salad was chopped cucumbers, tomatoes and green onions with a “creamy avocado dip” – guess was that consisted of. Oh yeah, see above. It too was delicious and Stephane said he could eat it daily. Whatevs.
The juice was the revelation here. It’s totally a keeper. I ended up adding pineapple to get a bit more juice out of it because I thought we might be hungry but really, this menu was plenty filling. We’ll see tomorrow what my thighs thought of all the avocado.
In the Juicer:
Two Stalks Celery
One Lime, peeled
It was SO refreshing. So light and yummy. I doubled what you see here and added a quarter pineapple after first tasting it. Either way it’s awesome. Next time I’ll add more veggies.
