|Today's cookie dough.|
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds
- 2 tbs. coconut oil
- 1 tbs. cacao butter
- 1 tbs. vanilla extract (as you may have guessed, I LOVE vanilla)
- 2-3 tbs. carob powder (you may also have noticed my carob fetish)
- 6-10 drops liquid stevia, to taste
- few drops of almond extract
- dash of Celtic sea salt
Now for the salad report. You may be thinking something along the lines of, "Jeee-zuss, does this chick have taste buds? So much lettuce! So much carob!" Let me assure you, not only do I have taste buds, I have very discerning taste buds, and I promise you all these salads and strange doughy concoctions are scrumptious.*
Here are a couple recent salads:
|Mixed baby greens, cuke, tomato, alfalfa sprouts, chickpea sprouts, avocado, black olives, hemp seeds, olive oil vinaigrette.|
|Mixed baby greens, cuke, carrot, alfalfa sprouts, chickpea sprouts, garlic kraut, black olives, olive oil vinaigrette.|
On another note, I recently attended a lovely raw potluck with my mother and Claire! I hadn't been in over a year, and I had a great time. It inspired me and reminded me how much I love being part of a community of loving people and families that share my ideals about food and living and school (or lack thereof). Claire has a post about it (with lots of yummy pictures!) over on her blog.
*I will concede that my palate is probably a little health-warped at this point. My mother often enters the kitchen to find me moaning in food ecstasy over a mixture of sauerkraut and almond butter, or, on one memorable occasion, soaked prunes with cinnamon. She finds these encounters hilarious.
