Lunch prep, again? Sometime I really can’t be bothered with this in the morning. Then I remember that I don’t really eat if I don’t take it in with me. Then after answering ‘maybe sometimes…’ to Frederick Patenaude’s question as to whether Raw Foodists Have an Eating Disorder like Orthorexia? I decided to get off my butt and make it.
I got a few new recipe books recently, and among them was Erica Palmcrantz’s Raw Food: A Complete Guide for Every Meal of the Day. I like it because it’s designed for one to two people so the portions are a good size (I’m usually hungry enought to eat two portions anyway or take leftovers for lunch the next day), it’s simple, it has lots of photographs. She’s also hot, blond and Swedish. What’s not to love?!
Hmmm. I digress….
Anyway, I had flicked through on the weekend and the Friday Burritos jumped out at me. On my weekend trip to the market I bought an avocado, which coincidently wasn’t ripe until today, and the cutest little bunch of radishes. The rest of the ingredients are fairly standard were a part of the regular shop. And the best thing about this recipe (apart from the fact it’s TASTY, is that you don’t need any fancy ‘raw’ kitchen gadgets so there’s no excuse not to try :)
Note: this recipe is great because you don’t have to follow it to the letter… put in what ever you have available, mix it up, add some spicyness and you’re good to go!
YUM, thanks Erica!
