[back] Raw food

[Few recipes logged.  The two brands most used are the Vitamix and Blendtec blender. They're equally good. The Blendec is more economic outside of the US. ]


A few days a week, my main meal of the day is an upmarket Green Smoothie, one with frills. I blend it in the evening after work, it takes about an hour. This is the recipe:

I snack on raw nuts like macadamia and pecan, for crunch. This meal completely nourishes me. I wake up full of bounce. If I have bean sprouts I may add them, but then it keeps me awake at night, it's so much protein.

For a high-protein blend, Energy Soup will do the trick!

This is the easiest healthiest quickest meal on earth!

Blend in your blender or food processor, using water or unpasteurized apple juice as the base:

Ann Wigmore advised it’s best to blend with home-made Rejuvelac, instead of water (a fermented wheatberry drink – the recipe is in my Sprouter Plans). The high vitamin E in rejuvelac stops nutrients from oxidizing. It's rich too in vitamins B and C, friendly bacteria for your colon, and enzymes for digestion.

Raspberry-banana-hempseed smoothie; raw food breakfast recipe

This smoothie is great for breakfast or if you get hungry in between meals.
It is also a good food for kids.

1 ripe banana
2 handfuls raspberries
1 tablespoon shelled hemp seed
½ cup water

Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.
Pour in a nice glass and enjoy!

The hemp seed is rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
Adding hemp seed gives this smoothie a rich flavor and helps to slow down the absorption of the fruit sugars. This creates a more stable blood sugar and a long lasting energy.

Beautiful Carrot-Orange-Dill "Gentle Touch" Smoothie

This beautiful orange smoothie has a very gentle taste. The combination is surprising.
You need a juicer to make carrot-orange juice. This juice is the basis for your smoothie.

Serves 2

2 large carrots
2 oranges, peeled
1 avocado
handful fresh dill
2 teaspoons lemon

Wash or peel the carrots. I prefer peeling, because they taste better this way.
Juice the carrots and oranges and pour this juice into your blender.
Add the avocado, dill and lemon juice.
Blend until smooth and creamy.
Garnish with some lemon and dill.

This smoothie has a mild dreamy taste. It’s great as an aperitif.
