Raw Vegan Meets Paleo
Thats right. My favorite way to eat since saying goodbye to my strict vegan ways (I'd call myself semi- paleo). Why do I love it? Simply because of the way it makes me feel. My palate could certainly do without it, but the food makes me feel grounded, balanced (physically and emotionally), and nourished. And to be exact, A lot of my diet still revolves around raw vegan food though and the following meal I enjoyed this week is the perfect example of combining the two diets. Also, being Day 10 of my sugar cleanse, this is the kind of food that keeps sugar cravings away. I find it fascinating that I have NO desire for sweet things when I eat this way.
Spaghetti N Meatballs
Raw zucchini noodles and sun dried tomato sauce with cooked moose meat balls, raw pesto drizzle, and raw parmesan. On of the best darn meals I've had in a while. Yum!
I'm not much of a soup person but felt inspired to make a creamy broccoli soup a few days ago after making some bone broth (with carrots, onion, celery, garlic, and himalayan salt).
I cooked some broccoli in the broth and then blended it along with the above veggies that I used to make the broth, cayenne pepper, and a big spoonful of leftover onion yogurt dip. Voila - easy creamy spicy broccoli soup. I topped mine with chili seeds I made the other day. Pumpkin and sesame seeds tossed with olive oil, chili powder, onion powder, and tamari - roasted in the oven.
The great thing about cooking (unlike baking) as that you don't need measurements for most dishes. Simply make it to taste!
Creamy Spicy Broccoli Soup
Bone, veggie broth, or almond milk
Yogurt or coconut milk or cashew cream
Cook veggies in liquid. Puree until smooth in a blender. Season. Enjoy!
