Continuing my raw-food only diet, now on day #5. Not much happened today, since I was feeling really lazy today – had to show my newly-moved friend to the supermarket again too, but I did get some work done. It was boring at first, but I am getting more and more recipes to add to my raw-repertoire – today I decided to make a celery slaw with celery&date sauce. First slaw ever too, and it was pure deliciousness. In hindsight I need to get a high speed blender and probably make more sauce as well, but it was just amazing – reminded me a bit of apple pie – probably the cinnamon in the sauce. It was really amazing to get something like that with a perfect mix of sweet and salty too.
Enjoyed a lot of different things today – ate a lot of avocados that I had left over, I can never resist to eat avocados when I got some. I was lucky when I went shopping a little bit an hour ago too to find some fresh dates at the supermarket, I’ve only found the dried ones before (Which I don’t particularly like) and have never gotten around to going to that moroccan market – now I can have the best of two worlds 🙂 – they were a lot cheaper than the dried ones too around 48 sek/kilo.
Also decided to try my hand on some flax seed crackers – you just can’t find proper crackers on even a gluten-free vegan diet in Sweden, let alone a raw vegan diet. Solution: make the damn crackers yourself. The so-called “dough” (looks more like a stir-fry mix if you ask me) is fermenting overnight and tomorrow it should supposedly be able to dry into crackers just by placing them on some baking paper. We’ll see how that goes.
The recipe for the slaw:
500 grams of celery (diced)
dash of cinnammon
depending on blender maybe some water to get it going (mine needed it)
2/3 of the celery goes into a bowl, the rest goes together with dates and cinnamon into the blender. Pour and scrape sauce into bowl and mix around. Enjoy.
