It was super simple: green leafy lettuce, 4 stems of celery, chopped, 1C of chopped parsley.
For dressing I combined 2T balsamic vinegar, 2T extra virgin olive oil and 3T sesame seeds.
Toss everything together and voila–salad served. If you so desire you can add your favorite spice [I added Kirkland Organic Mix], and a tad of salt.
While my 2 extra large potatoes [chopped] where boiling with a tad of Himalayan salt, I sauteed 1/2 chopped onion in 2-3T extra virgin olive oil.When potatoes were done, I had mine one-and-only mash them up in a little bit of boiling water [I did not strain potatoes completely], then we poured sauteed onions over potatoes and our lunch was ready!
Simple and simply delicious!
Now I am going to get to that Raw Chocolate Hemp Milk I mentioned.
When I got home from work I was craving carbs and could not seem to find a way to satisfy myself. After cleaning the kitchen a brilliant idea hit my taste buds. As much as I wanted to stay away from bread today, I was craving a slice of home-made toasted bread with a dash of salt on it and something creamy and sweet to contrast it. So… Raw Chocolate Hemp Milk was born.
Raw Chocolate Hemp Milk
- 1/3C raw whole hemp seeds
- 1 1/4C warm water [you can use cold water if you wish]
- 2 tsp raw honey
- dash of salt to balance out the sweetness
- 1 heaping tsp raw cacao
I toasted my home-made wheat bread on a heated skillet, having spread a tad of olive oil on both sides and salted it with Himalayan Salt. All I can say is YUM!
Hope you can satisfy your cravings with some awesome vegan food as well, when they come, so there is no sense of guilt, as you would have it after a pint of Ben and Jerry’s .
Have a good night!
