Today is my second day of raw-food cooking and I decided to make a salad. Daring, I know, since I’ve always kind of disliked salads due to them always having vinegar in them, and thus the word salad has had a certain negative feeling in my mind. Anyways, I found a really delish recipe in Chris’s book that I decided to make – a berry salad. Blending half a cup of mixed berries and 3 tangerines to a sauce and pouring on top of some chopped spinach, another tre tangeringes (diced) and another half cup of mixed berries. It was so delicious I couldn’t stop eating – overeating haven’t really been a topic for me since I went on raw food, but I got enlightened that oh yes it can still happen, just want to go make myself another bowl right now 😛
Another amazing thing with going on raw food is that I’m loosing weight like crazy. If it keeps going on like this for a few more weeks I will have successively lost more weight on this diet in a month than all my efforts on cooked (and non-vegan) food for years 🙂
The recipe for the salad:
250-500 grams of spinach
1-2 cups of mixed berries
1. Roughly chop the spinach and half of the tangerines. Add into big bowl with half of the mixed berries
2. Blend remaining tangerines and mixed berries to a sauce/dressing. Pour and scrape into the bowl and mix around.
3. Enjoy a taste of pure heaven
