Breakfast Food

Peaches & Cream Cereal pg. 111 I enjoyed this recipe for breakfast this morning. They had some typing errors and I changed the recipe a bit. Below is how I made it:

3/4 c. rolled oats soaked in water 12-24 hours with some whey (to break down phytates) In the morning rinse and drain.
1 peach, sliced
1/4 c. sliced almonds
1/4 t. vanilla
1 t. maple syrup
1/4 c. milk or cream
1/4 c. apple juice
salt to taste
Combine all ingredients and mix. Serve Raw.

Yummy Day 2

I really am liking this so far. I’m so happy to be having more fruits and vegetables. Especially in new ways! I wasn’t doing good eating enough vegetables because I was really getting tired of my standard fare of a normal lettuce salad. It’s nice to be discovering new ways of having vegetables.

Mixed Fruit Combo pg. 110

1/2 apple
1/2 pear
1/2 ripe banana
1 1/2 bananas
1/4 c. raisins (I would recommend 2 T instead)
1/4 c. dates
Pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon

Soak raisins and chopped dates in distilled water over night. Drain and save soaking water. Slice or dice apple, pear, and 1/2 ripe banana. Make the following sauce to pour over fruit: In food processor or blender, place peeled 1 1/2 banana raisins and dates with as much of the soaking water as required to blend to a creamy consistency.  Add a pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon.

Apple Salad pg. 146 Very yummy! My dad tried this salad and really liked it. He kept saying how different the combination was but yet how much he really liked it and that we should take it to picnics and potlucks. The ingredients are: celery, pear, grapes,juice of a lemon, appples, pecans, and juice of an orange.

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.
