Day 1 We’ve just begun….

So I started today with a little trepidation. Can I really pull this off? But on the upside I discovered I love being “forced” to eat more fruits and vegetables. I did not realize how horrible I’ve been doing at that. So what did I make today? I actually got around to making three different recipes. Great start if I say so myself.

Fruit Plate pg. 112—nothing special. Nice combination of fruits though. (Pears, apples, bananas, figs, dates, and raisins) 

Grated Apple Combo pg.157—This was yummy, especially if allowed to sit long enough to let the flavors of the apples blend in with the rest of the ingredients.  

Raw Stuffed Peppers pg.151Surprisingly I really liked this. I didn’t think I would because it didn’t have any seasonings.  

I discovered I liked the filling on a piece of bread as an open face sandwich instead of in the raw pepper. Though I would recommend adding at least a little salt.

1 red bell pepper for each person (I used green because that was all our grocery store had)
1 large avocado
2 scallions (I found this to be too many. Try 1) 
2 celery stalks
2 tomatoes
1/2 c grated cabbage
Wash pepper, remove top, ribs and seeds. Set aside. Mash the avocado,chop scallions and celery, dice tomatoes, and grate cabbage. Combine all chopped vegetables and stuff pepper.
