No posts for a while as I’ve been very busy producing the next issue of the Funky Raw magazine. I really need to get it finished by tonight so I’ll be quick. We had a raw food gathering here last night and here are a couple of recipes I made:
Avocado and Carrot Sauce
- 1 avocado
- 1 carrot
- 2 sun dried tomatoes, soaked
- 3 tablespoons of seaweed flakes
- fresh chili to taste
- 1 tablespoon flax oil
- water (as much as you need to get it to blend properly)
Put everything in the blender, including some (or all) of the soak water from the tomatoes and blend.
I’ve started to use flax oil as I read a bit about Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids and their importance to our health. We need a balance of the two, but most nuts and seeds have way more omega 6 so we need some flax oil which has more omega 3. Hemp seeds have a good balance of both.
Carrot and Beetroot salad
- 2 carrots
- 1/2 beetroot
- juice of 1 orange
Grate the carrots and beetroot into a bowl and pour over the orange juice. Leave to marinate for a while, stirring occationally.
Everyone who came brough delicious food, my favorite being Charlie’s Carob Pie (and of course Holly’s Golden Cream Pie).
