My menu is now being heavily influenced by the produce we are getting from the CSA. Normally I don’t care for beets very much but we have gotten a bunch of them each week from the farm. I haven’t really ever liked them cooked but I’m finding that juiced they are pretty good. On the other hand I LOVE tatsoi and thankfully the farm grows it. I have always loved to stir fry the tatsoi either in a peanut sauce or in just a little soy sauce but since I am going for 100% raw I adapted the recipe.
My morning green juice included some of the collards and beets from the CSA. It wasn’t as sweet as I normally like it and due the beets it was very deep redish brown color but it was still really good and it had me energized all through the day!
I also had my first young thai coconut today. I know it is crazy I’ve been eating rawish for about 2 years and never had one before. To be honest I didn’t care for it very much. The meat was ok but the milk was just… ick but very refreshing all at the same time. My daughter seemed to like the milk and I gave most of it to her. It was fun trying to get into it but I think I broke my knife. haha I know people rave about it and love it so if you haven’t tried it you should. It just isn’t for me.
Breakfast: green juice (7 collard leaves, 1/2 head romaine, 1 lemon, 1 inch ginger, 1 beet with tops, 2 apples)
Lunch: Creamy Cucumber Avocado Soup
Dinner: Peanut Tatsoi Stir Fry
“Peanut” Tatsoi “Stir Fry”- Raw vegan (contains nuts)
I feel like this whole title should be in quotations since it actually contains no peanuts and it isn’t actually fried. HAHA Maybe it needs a new name…
