Raw Food Day 8.

I love beets.
Raw, steamed, roasted, blended, juiced, any way at all.
My friend makes this amAAAzing beet lentil rosemary soup that I really need the recipe for. So anyway, I blended raw beets with a frozen banana and some brazil nut milk to make my smoothie/ juice today. So delicious! Beets are high in iron and are wonderful for your digestive system. Everything’s better straight from nature right?!

And this was lunch. I used my handy dandy julienne peeler to “spaghetti” a zucchini. They make the best noodles. I used my immersion blender to make a quick vinaigrette with garlic, mustard, oil, raw tahini, red pepper, rice vinegar and salt. Another thing I’ve been loving lately are salted apples. I know it sounds strange but sliced thin, rubbed with a lemon and sprinkled with salt….yum. So addictive.

    salted apples? why not? I need to try. I like them thinly sliced on a rye bread. Although apple mousse or jam on bread if even better ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m into beets too! I have a recipe for beet cake made with stevia as well as beetniks on my blog and am actively collecting lots more!

    Oo I love beets too and that smoothie sounds wonderful – I’ve never tried brazil nut milk!
    The lunch sounds divine too! Zucchini noodles, another must-try.

    Salted apples (and cucumbers) are a common snack in India, I just don’t like it with Golden apples but like it the others I’ve tried ๐Ÿ™‚
