I decided that I would try one of the raw restaurants I had heard about and so I hoped in the car with addresses in hand. I drove half an hour only to find that the place I was looking for was nowhere to be found. Bummed, I headed to YDFM and managed to get my shopping down and get back home before 8:30.
I've definitely been having a craving for meat. But not so much meat, but rather, meaty food, like chili. I stumbled across a recipe for raw chili on this here site and decided to go for it. It could be that I was to the point-of-not-feeling-hunger hungry but I thought it was damn good. I ended up adding more chili powder and cumin to my mix because I like those kicks but it was still tasty from the get-go. Pretty watery but the chunks of red and yellow bell peppers and onions (yes, I ate raw onions) added a great crunch. Super easy to make so go do it! I dare ya.
Chili burps are included.
I found this recipe for pomegranate cheesecake (courtesy of Chef Russell James) when I was first looking into the raw diet. I wasn't about to commit if I couldn't have dessert! Decided to make it tonight so that Ken and I could possibly enjoy it tomorrow. I have a feeling that there will still be too much sugar in it for him but I had been telling him about this recipe for so long that I felt bad NOT waiting for him.
I love the contrast in colors. That's the only reason I took this photo.
Popped it into the freezer and am just waiting for it to harden. Probably won't get to try it til tomorrow but from the tiny taste I got of the mixture it is going to be scrumptious!
