Check it out of you'd like to increase the amount of raw food you eat, it has some nice recipes. :) I made the cabbage and kale slaw in simple greek dressing last night, and it was pretty good. I didn't have scallions but I did add sweet onions and it gave it a nice kick of flavor. It's basically what it sounds like.
First you chop the cabbage into slaw type bits:
I use my ninja, which I think I've professed my love for here before. A lot of people say it's a physical impossibility for the ninja to chop evenly due to the way the blades are spaced. The ninja pictured here is the newer food processor/smoothie making one and it has three blades in the big container, not just two. It does chop far more evenly than the old one, but I loved that one too. Just so you can see what it chops like, the pic below shows the finished results of my slaw, with one large piece of cabbage that didn't get chopped quite right, but that was the only 'uneven' piece in the entire container:
After chopping it up I mixed the dressing, which was just oil, apple cider vinegar, salt and thyme. I didn't follow the directions as it fed four, but just tossing stuff together, it seemed to come out good. :)
Simple Greek dressing:
When I do my 75% raw weeks, I am doing them vegan but it's not a 'vegan thing.' necessarily. Anyone can try and increase the amount of raw food that they eat. Here is a FAQ About raw eating. One of the reasons I do it once a month is to speed up a slowing loss pattern. It seems to work pretty well. I normally lose 2 lbs a week and on a raw week I can lose 3 and sometimes 4. I just do it for 7 days but it really jump-starts things. Try adding some extra raw food to your diet today. :) I'm considering a 3 day juice fast next week followed by 2 days of mostly raw to reintroduce solid foods as well. I <3 my juicer. :)
Have any of you tried to increase your raw intake? How has it worked out for you?
