Raw Food Birthday Wishes

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME

Tomorrow I turn 42! I made my family promise they would not make or buy a traditional cake for me. I could make a great Raw Living Food Cake, but I’ve been craving a Watermelon all day!

My dad had his 73rd birthday yesterday and we indulged in a piece of his cake. I already had a sore throat and my taste buds were going on me, but I ate it all gone. Boy, was I sorry. Even today, just the thought of that cake makes me sick to my stomach. It was really beautiful but not what my body is used to, so this is what we are having tomorrow to celebrate my big day.

Update to the Raw Vegan Chocolate Mousse

I thought the Chocolate Mousse was awesome once I made it, but I put it in the fridge and kind of forgot about it until the next morning. Once I took a bite of the refrigerated version, I had a flash back to the fudge in the cookies I loved as a kid. Before I went to work, I decided to make some almond cookies so I would be able to use this mousse/fudge in a cookie.

My typical almond cookie consistes of:
1/2 c raw almonds
agave and/or 3-4 dates
2 tbsp. coconut oil
1/2 vanilla bean or vanilla extract (alcohol free)
blend all in a food processor
form into small balls and flatten out into a cookie shape, or spread it all onto a dehydrator sheet and cut into squares before dehydrating.
Dehydrate @ 115 for 6 hours

When I got home from work, the cookies were done so I gave myself a treat by taking 2 cookies and placing the fudge in the middle to make a Raw sandwich cookie! Super Yummy.
