We came back to sunny Arizona last week and the hot sunshine has been welcoming. We’re staying at my mom’s for a few days, so it’s kind of like the vacation has been extended. Mom and I went to the farmers’ market yesterday and loaded up on our locally grown goodies from my favorite farmer Doug. I can’t tell you enough how happy I am to be a part of his CSA.

Today’s Glorious Fresh Raw Vegan ORGANIC Food:
Cucumber Sun Plant Blood
This was a refreshing and delicious recipe guaranteed to help keep me cool in the hot summer sun. I used my Breville to make this juice super fast…. like in a minute! The recipe had 3 cucumbers and 2 peeled oranges (all locally grown, organic ingredients)
2 cups watermelon
Organic Red Raspberry Leaf Tea
This is one of my favorite herbal teas.
I made my second batch of sauerkraut before I left for NY. When we came back home (to mom’s) we harvested it and OMG! it is freakin’ AWESOME. This time, I added a few cloves of crushed garlic into the mix (per head of cabbage). So, today I took 2 carrots, 1 apple, 1 radish, and I shredded them into a bowl. Then, I added 1/2 cup of my raw, organic, unpasteurized sauerkraut and stirred it all together. YUM! (Read about my first sauerkraut adventures here.)
(I love prunes, and they’re such a great way to help make sure you’re going poops!)
1 bowl Raw granola with Creamy Dreamy Hemp Milk
This was hearty and satisfying.
Dinner: Tonight we’re having humongous salads made with fresh organic, locally grown romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, red and yellow bell peppers, and my super refreshing and delicious Raw vegan dressing, Sweet Capri Dressing (my parents LOOOOOVE this dressing). For dessert, we’re having sliced strawberries we bought from Doug yesterday topped with a drizzle of agave nectar and some fresh orange zest.
July’s (first of two) Awesome Giveaways is THIS WEEK! Stay tuned!!!
