And roasts, eggs benedict, chocolate fudge... mmmmmBut I do feel we could probably benefit from eating a bit more raw foods.And when you think about it this should be fairly easy - its the ultimate fast food, no cooking required. But strangely its not. I think its because eating raw means being organised. Case in point lunch Tuesday (2:30 pm A's nap time - you take it when you can get it), I reached into the pantry to grab a tin of baked beans (Watties of course). I was thinking cheese and bean toasties but then I remembered I was trying to eat more raw foods. 10mins later I had this:
and it was good. But the point is I needed to have a red cabbage, broccoli, chickpeas (which i had precooked sooo... not raw, shhh), in my fridge, nuts in my freezer, and a good quality vinaigrette. And that involves good organisation. Today it was a handful of ham, a few cherry tomatoes, and some crackers and humus, (cause I need to hit the supermarket again). But hey, a little at a time. Hopefully as I eat more raw, I will get more inspired and learn to shop better at the same time.
Wish me luck
And have a healthy week
