I Just got my latest Raw/Living Uncook Book in the mail and I am so excited. I’ve been wanting to get this one for months now. Sometimes I loiter around Barnes & Noble, or Bloomsbury Books in Ashland reading through the Health section, or flipping through raw books that I don’t already have. Since I’m on a bartering, exchange kick right now, I’ve decided not to purchase anything new unless I can trade for it. I’ve always enjoyed a good bargain, but this is a new level of creativity for me.
Here’s a perfect example- Since we’re prepping for an upcoming move, I’m in clean out – purge mode. We just don’t need some of the items we have. I had been wanting a cruiser bicycle for some time. I decided to post a barter trade on Craigslist and to my suprise, I had a new beach cruiser within 48 hours! My son and I went for a nice early ride this morning. I haven’t owned a bike in over 15 years, so this is really a treat for me.
Back to the book…I sold some books on Amazon and used that money to get this new book. YEAH! Sarma Melngailis writes in a way that makes you feel like Raw is easy, which it is but sometimes it looks complicated in how it’s presented. I haven’t been to New York, but when I go I will definately grab some food at her restaurant PURE FOOD AND WINE. I’m looking forward to making some of her Congo Bars and Coconut-Lime Cookies. I’ve lent out my dehydrator to a friend, so in the meantime, I’ll be making her KEY LIME PIE SHAKE for breakfast. Try it with me.
KEY LIME PIE SHAKE
1 1/2 cups fresh apple juice (3 apples any variety)
1/2 c fresh squeezed lime juice (3 limes)
1 ripe avocado
1 tsp vanilla extract (or fresh vanilla bean seeds)
2 Tbsp agave
Puree all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!

I thought I’d give you an idea of what my first few days at High Raw looked like.
Smoothie: spinach, coconut water, banana, kelp
Snack in the car: almonds & goji berries
Lunch: veggie burger on veggie bread (I prepared and dehydrated the night before) w/ lettuce, raw mustard and raw ketchup
Snack: squash chips, flax crackers, 1 apple
Dinner: I really wasn’t hungry, but I had a small salad and 1/2 cup of a smoothie.
I juiced ginger/cucumber & 2 carrots then added a frozen banana, spinach and maca to make a delicious smoothie
Snack: almonds & lemon water
Lunch: small salad w/ veggie burber
Snack: 2 vanilla macroons (I made the night before) & 1 small banana
Dinner: squash spaghetti w/ tomato garlic sauce
I woke up late so I took a small salad to eat on the way to work
Lunch: veggie burger/veggie bread/lettuce/tomato
Snack: smoothie ~ blueberries/banana/horsetail/maca/dates & juice pulp from day 2 am drink
cayenne flax crackers
just before dinner: almond bar (I made day prior)
walk in the park
Dinner: Jicama/lime nori wrap
I really got hooked on the veggie burgers. They were so filling and nutrient dense that it gave me a ton of energy and kept me full.
