You wanna be fit, healthy, have your rawfood cake and eat it too…All you need is
willpower 5 hours sweat around your blender, stove, oven, cutting, washing, buzzing, being almost deafened by buzzing from your kitchen helpers…
I’ve been slaving away aaaall morning long and here are the
vegetables fruits of my labour.
1.Cauliflower ”rice”-half hourrrrrrr.Que horror!Chopping spring onions, sautéing them in coconut oil, then adding the pulverized in the kitchen robot cauliflower,and then there was THE stirring…But at the end it tastes like mashed potatoes.Very paleo.
2.Brcocoli-A staple is a staple.I know , not much science and haute cuisine here, but still takes time…
3.Baked cauliflower-yum!If you bake it long enough, it tastes very sweet.I also baked few broccoli florets,which are sitting pretty underneat that last pic.
It’s not easy eating clean and healthy!
Also whipped these chicken patties-my protein source throughout the week.I know they are not easy on the eye, but they are very tasty,clean and good for you.Here is the recipe: http://wp.me/p2iumO-1vy
Bought a huge bag with salad and cherry tomatoes and distributed it in Tupperware for easy access every weekday.
I am a 45 year old sweet potato virgin!I Till we came to US, I never, ever had a sweet potato in my mouth!Boy was I missing!
How was I living all these years!!So ,understandably(like all late in life virgins) I just can’t get enough of these sweet little thang.
Seen here-baked with skin sweet potato ”fries”.My go to snack. If I crave something sweet, I just dip these in my avocado chocolate mousee .Heaven! And it won’t mess with your insulin. Saweet!
Another sweet potato post workout snack-pancakes.Perfect combo of protein-eggs, and good carbs-sweet potato and fat-coconut milk (few spoons) and coconut oil.
And now my pride and joy-My nut butters!!It was totally worth it all the decibels from my kitchen robot, but after half hour of buzzing and nearly being deafened by my noisy machine, here they are…
1.Sunflower seed butter-Clean,healthy good for you fats source.Great snack on its own or paired with raisins, nuts cocos etc.
2.Avocado guacamole-avocado,cillantro, lemon juice,garlic,Himalayan salt.To add healthy fat and tasti-fy any salad or meat.
3.Avocado chocolate mousse!! Need I say more!
Few avocados (hass), stevia, cocoa, coconut water(or milk) and powerfull blender=Chocolate heaven!
4.Choco-butter-mix sunflower seed,shredded coconut,sesame seeds with stevia and cocoa!! Nuttella-shmuttela has nothing on these baby. And no, it doesn’t last a week…
And here is me after 5 hours of ardous labour in the kitchen…
A moment like this calls for an immediate gratification-reward, so I whipped this banana-strawberry,pineapple,orange juice smoothie to pat my self on the back for the hard labour.
There!Get in my belly!
Life is good again. If only I should not have to wash alllll the dishes….
