This is a continuing visual documentation of my goal to eat 50% raw foods.
I'm trying to stay on track with this goal. It's tough when time is limited, so these are all meals that can be pulled together quickly.
My favorite places to shop are Sprouts and Trader Joe's, but sometimes I just go to the local grocery store right around the corner. While there last week, the cashier was in awe that I was buying so many veggies and fruit. She was making a really big deal about it, and it kind of made me sad that doing so is such an anomaly. I mean, isn't that what we're supposed to be eating? It reminded me of this book and how so much of what people actually consume probably shouldn't even be considered food.
One thing I've loved about this endeavor is that I've tried a lot of new things, like hulled hemp seed (I coated the avocados above with it, and add it to salads here and there). My mom and sister recently went to a class all about grains, and I decided the next thing I'm going to experiment more with is amaranth.
Do you have any recent healthy food discoveries?
