No, not ME. My food processor. This raw food diet, JEEEEEZZ it's all blend this, process that, freeze this then blend together, process 'til smooth, and on and on. It's a workout for my mini-Cuisinart. When it starts to smell of burning I know it's time to give it a rest and switch over to the Magic Bullet for awhile.
The things I've been processing: frozen bananas, mung bean sprouts with almond butter, sprouted sesame seeds, macadamias, cashews and garlic, lemons with oil and apple cider vinegar, basil and oil, walnuts and dates...
It's pretty yummy. And I'm feeling great. After an initial few day of uncomfortable digestion issues, my stomach seems to have remembered how to digest raw food. And energy levels are way up. Usually my eyes start to droop around 10pm and I have 30 minutes to get myself to bed or else pretty much fall asleep wherever I am. But I've been holding out much later, and up early with no problem. That alone makes this diet worth it. Oh, and I've lost 5 lbs.
Today for lunch, Alissa Cohen's Apple Avocado Nori Wraps
It's just apple slices, Avocado slices, some lettuce and raw honey wrapped together with Nori sheets (not toasted). Taking it easy on the food processor for once!
