And if you can't do raw food looking at this all day then one has no hope back in Melbourne.

I do like the pristine clean feeling uncooked food gives me. And if you like salads it is relatively easy to do quite often.
Sunday night is raw food night. It used to be omelette night. Or noodles night.
I recently bought this book by Kimberley Snyder. She of the Green Smoothie I have mentioned before.
Her eating plan is about beauty and skin health. I am interested in it for overall health reasons. Her eating plan is also vegan, which I struggle with. I did vegan once, and lasted about 10 hours. I know. Hopeless, right?
However, as bizarre as it sounds, her raw cold cauliflower soup is divine.
I won't show you the finished soup because frankly it's not that appetising looking. But here are the ingredients and they look pretty nice before they are pureed.
Put in a vitamiser the following:
- juice of a lemon
- half or quarter of a cauliflower, chopped
- half an avocado
- good splash of tamari
- teaspoon of turmeric
- large pinch of sea salt
- a cup of water
Blend until smooth. You can adjust the wateriness if you like. Her recipe involves a teaspoon of miso but I don't have that so I left it out. I also put in heaps of tamari. You could also put in some dried chilli flakes.
This makes a generous bowl for one or small bowls for two. It's not enough food for me so I also have some of her 'burritos' which consist of celery marinated in lemon juice, mustard and savoury yeast, avocado, sprouts and spinach wrapped in a nori sheet.
Do you have any raw food treats I can try? White wine counts as raw food. So does red wine.
