To make ourselves accountable, we will be posting our weekly menu at least the two weeks he is gone. We will be adding photos as we prepare our evening meals.
Our breakfast will be basically the same each day.
Fruit (1-1.5 pounds) plus a couple of raw cinnamon raisin bagels with almond butter (for our son). Some of us need more calories.
My smoothie consist of 2 cups leafy greens (spinach or kale), 1 cup frozen berries, 1 TBS flax, 1 cup liquid of choice (almond milk, keifer, kombucha, water...), 1 TBS green powder (we use green superfood from Amazing Grass) or 2 oz of liquid wheat grass, 1 probiotic pill or powder.
Our mid-day will also be basically the same each day
A large salad weighing ~1 pound. For those needing more calories like our son, a couple of buckwheat pizza with marinated mushrooms or sprouted curry salad with either naan or onion bread or if there are leftovers, he will eat them.
Our evening meals will change daily
Sunday: Pad Thai, we are using the recipes from The Complete Book of Raw Food. We didn't add the oil or the peppers (too spicy for our son) to the Pad Thai Sauce. We used the sun-dried tomato soaking water instead of water. We also used the Hijiki seaweed, 1 TBS soaked in 2 TBS water for 30 minutes.
Monday: Sun garden burgers and a Roasted Bell Pepper Cheese and Mushroom Risotto, again from The Complete Book of Raw Food. We only used 1 tsp of ground Chipotle peppers and it was still too spicy for our son. The next time we make it we will use 1 tsp of smoked paprika. We also only used 1 tsp of salt instead of 4. We also served a beet and apple slaw
Tuesday: Beet Ravioli with a salad, from Raw Organic Goodness
raw tomato soup for dinner.
The carrot pulp is used to make a pulp salad for our son's dinner with some of the tomato soup.
Raw Organic Goodness
Friday: Raw Stroganoff from The Complete Book of Raw Food. The pinenut sour cream is amazing.
Saturday: Living Lasagna from a combination of recipes. The sauce, mushrooms, and onion and peppers from RawGuru. The cheese from Fully Raw Kristina. This is where we compared the lasagnas and selected what we liked best.
