Here's how it turned out. I was given a rave about it and asked if we could have this again. :)

Success :D
I tweaked the recipe a bit last night (was asked to make it again :) )
Instead of parsley I used cilantro (WHAT A REVELATION!!!)
I also added some red onion and took out the garlic (we didnt have any LOL )

WOW WOW WOW!!!  Too effin GOOOD! :D

Should have a new blender this week and then some REAL awesome creations will be made.

Man, I bet the cilantro makes it out of this world!  

Last night I had spicy tuna (it was cooked because it's impossible to find sushi-grade raw fish around here unless you special order) wrapped in raw cabbage leaves.  Simple and SOOOOOO good!
Spicy tuna sushi is my all time FAVE!!!!

The cilantro really did give it an extra level of RAWSOMENESS!!! :D

Yeah, I love me some tuna sashimi.  A little soy, some wasabi, maybe some sriracha sauce....yum!  :drool:
When it comes to soy use Kikkomon only... it's gluten free. I pile on the wasabi! :drool:

I'm finding out how many items actually have gluten in them. I would have never thought that soy sauce of all things would have it. I've been struggling with getting it out of my diet but succeeding somewhat. Yesterday I was disappointed to see that a woman from church had left a skewer of Easter candy at my door, that was hard to resist. :tsk:

Is balsamic vinegar or olive oil considered raw? I'm guessing no but the other night I made a salad with yellow bell pepper, olives, roma tomato, english cucumber, and a little bit of salt, it was great. I think I'll make it again tonight but with avocado.

I love chia! I want to start making some chia puddings.
VERY easy and VERY yummy!
get a glass mason jar with a lid, 1 cup of almond milk/ coconut milk/ soy milk (whichever you prefer) 3 Tbsp chia seeds, 1 tsp of natural sweeter (honey, maple syrup, agave etc..) 1 1/2 tsp vanilla mix all together... let stand for 20 mins then stir again and put in fridge overnight.  In the morning you have vanilla chia seed pudding... I add fresh fruit like bananas and pomegranates, apples... you can add cinnamon to make an apple and cinnamon chia seed pudding... the possibilities are endless!

I tried this recipe, Ya, and it was awesome!  So easy and delicious!

I think the olive oil is raw. It's in a lot of raw recipes I'm noticing.
That salad does sound good.
Easter is a hard time to give up sugar. Good for you. This will be my second Easter no candy or chocolate and I'm ok with that. :)

I know right! You can even add raw cacao to it to make it chocolate flavoured. It's hard to not get hooked on this.

I don't think I've ever heard of a woman who didn't like avocados. I don't like them, but I love guacamole. Weird, huh? ;)

I have found that the older I get the less meat I eat. It just takes too long to digest and makes me slow and tired. I have thought about cleansing my body, but I'm not sure I'll go the Raw Food way. It's too restrictive to me but I see a lot of great recipes here I think I should try. Better than nothing, right? :)

Anyone ever done a good cleansing diet? After what my mom just went thru - I might want to employ a little prevention :unsure:

I would guess it's no meat, lots and lots of water and vegetables and food with lots of fibers in it? If that doesn't work then a triple espresso should do the trick.

This is one of the cleanses I did before I got married. I'm not going to lie it was EXPENSIVE. After I tried a couple of his programs and found what I liked and didn't like I then made my own variation on things.

Last year, after losing my father-in-law and my grandmother I went back to my emotional go-to, which was food. I gained a ton of weight and was eating terribly. I've only started eating well again in the past week or so and it has made such a difference.

Try the Wildrose cleanse... it's not as restrictive and highly effective. You have to drink a TON of water tho. No booze, no caffeine no meat.

Won't be too hard. I already drink a ton of water, I don't drink anything with caffeine, and rarely drink. I pretty much only eat fish chicken and pork... so that's not a huge stretch. I will check it out. Thanks!

If you really want to cleanse ditch the meat.

I recently tried this: http://synergydrinks...cha-multi-green

My first taste of organic raw kombucha tea... I had it after I treated myself to some lovely sushi and I think the pro-biotics in there helped the digestion process completely.

Been doing some research on it, I dont think I'll have it daily but this is something I could definitely keep drinking.

Has anyone else tried it?

I tried the kombucha that my nutritionist recommended to me and I wanted to hurl. And then I tried another brand that cost like $6.75 a bottle and I still wanted to hurl. For probiotics I take a pill that I keep in my fridge.

I used to take that pill too... it didnt really help tho. I think i need to change my diet to raw first.
