The morning started off with one rockin workout!! 60 minutes elliptical and a cool down sesh. Nice! Then back to the apt. for some chocolate oats! Looks gross but tasted great!
wahoo!! Later on today its massage time, my legs need some love! I try to get a massage once every couple of months. I really think it helps the body rid itself of toxins and just moves everything around in general. Very healing.
I have the entire week off which is really fabulous so Ive been spending some more time in the kitch. Im out of balls! Since I ate most of them over this past week I decided to try and work on some new flavors. This time I created a goji and vanilla bean Raw ball.
Goji and Vanilla bean Raw Ball *
30 grams cashews
80 grams pitted medjool dates
1/8 cup goji berries (dried)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 vanilla beans
3 Tbsp. oatbran (oatmeal or ww flour works too, whatever you have on hand)
2 tsp. maple syrup
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
Put cashews into food processor and blend to a fine powder. Add in dates. Seed your vanilla bean. Slit bean down the side and using the sharp side of your knife carefully scrape the beans out.) Add these to the food processor. Take goji berries and add to boiling water for 2-3 minutes. This will plump them up alot more. Add them along with the rest of the ingredients and pulse. If too wet just add more oatbran until a good consistency is formed. Roll into balls and pop into freezer, fridge or mouth.=) Enjoy!
*Ball Disclaimer: The raw balls are not truly raw. Its just a name that stuck. Raw cookie dough batter balls was a bit of a mouthful so I abbreviated.
I just wanted to say thank you to Rose from On a Lobster Placemat!! She sent me these WONDERFUL oatcakes. Oh gosh they are so good. Me and my husband tore into these bad boys right away and man are they tasty!
Thank you so much!! So incredibly kind of you!
For lunch I loaded up on a cucumber salad with some of Averie’s slaw dressing. (Which is amazing btw!!! Im eating it on everything right now)
Also some greek yogurt and apples. (Surprise!)
The rest of the day was random housey stuff and errands. Then onto dinner! I like to munch while I cook and right now Im hooked on this amazingly hot and spicy mustard with cucumbers.
So delicious!! Super spicy which I love too.
Dinner was just some sautéed veggies and a miso and nooch gravy which turned out just ok. I think it still needs something though so I’ll have to keep on playing with it.
Then finally time for dessert! The usual Peanut butter tofu pudding and some naners and chia seeds for crunch.
Tomorrow Im really excited because Im hitting up Rawvolution in Santa Monica. Seems to awesome. Im hoping to learn a few things and try some fabulous new raw foods.
Anyways I hope everyone had a fantastic evening!!
Cool soup giveaway!
