Raw “Tacos”

RawTacos (1)

Alright, so I’ve been on this new raw foods exploration…deciding I’m going to try at least one raw foods recipe per week for as long as I enjoy it or feel like it really. I don’t think I need to go into the benefits of a raw foods diet seeing as how it is becoming a bit of a trend and I believe most of you have heard of it. The lifestyle has always intrigued me, but every time I thought of eating that way on a daily basis, images of only salads danced through my head. I like salads just like any other skinny girl out there, but ALL the time EVERYDAY! No NOT for me! I would like to be healthier and incorporate more raw foods into my diet though, so I will try to share the recipes as I try them. I have been very surprised at the variety and complexity of the flavors…something I wasn’t expecting at all. These tacos were VERY good! I have no issues at all with them and would eat them again. Raw Foods-1, Kim-0. The recipe only serves one. Doubling it filled up my husband and I with a little bit left over.

PB&Banana Rounds

PB&BananaRounds

This is what I will call a Make-It-Happen Toddlers Hungry and It’s very Picky. Let’s see…she likes bananas and peanut butter. I’ve heard of peanut butter banana sandwiches, buuuuuut no bread. Well I have these tortillas… Aha! Spread on the peanut butter, roll that sucker up, and throw on some carrots and grapes for variety and color. Kids love color. Also, slice it up. Kids love finger foods. It was a success with Little Miss, and it was so good I made myself a plate. Yum! I think this set me on a new online quest to find out what other moms have come up with in desperate times. I’ll let you guys know what comes of it.

Spinach Smoothie

Spinach Smoothie

This recipe was shared with me by my friend Gloria. It’s so refreshing and has this amazing nuttiness from the almond milk. Best of all, it’s super healthy! I’ve yet to find a raw foods recipe that is this tasty, but if you guys have any you think might match it…please share! Anything healthy that also tastes good has a place in my recipe stash. I won’t pretend to be a vegan health nut, but I do fantasize about it. I think I just love butter and cream way too much!
