Busy Sunday

This is Ani's Raw Food Kitchen cookbook that Kelsey and I are making all our meals out of just for your information!
You know you're going raw when...

On the menu for breakfast this morning was the "Spanish Scramble" This included:
  • 2 cups almonds, dry
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, dry
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1 cup tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup scallions
My food processor isn't that big so I mixed the sunflower seeds and almonds together to process them in batches.

Then I transfered everything to the blender and added the water, the salt, and the turmeric.
My blender was having a hard time with this intensely thick concoction!
Served on a bed of spinach with salt and pepper.
It's supposed to make four servings but I think these servings are huge! I woke up late so this was sort of my brunch. It sat pretty heavy in my stomach though and I don't think I will be eating this much at one time again :/
Chelsey wanted to taste the homemade almond mylk so I tasted some with her :) Then I rushed off to work!
I rushed home from work only to pack up and leave again for opera rehearsal, ugh! I made the tastiest smoothie though. It was more like a dessert smoothie! I used
  • 1 small banana
  • 2 small pitted dates
  • 1/2 tsp. carob powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cacao nibs
  • 1 tsp. almond butter
  • about 1/4 cup frozen strawberries
I packed a portion of the Confetti Salad with Cucumber Orange Dressing, two peeled carrots, and a cherry pie lärabar.
When we first arrived there was some downtime so I tried not to be obnoxious while eating this carrot!
By the way, this is my new camera case. Isn't it cute!?

When we were released for an hour I parked myself down in the dressing room and had dinner. I gave this salad an intense shake to mix everything around. You can't really tell in this photo but there were a whole bunch of walnuts and dried cranberries at the bottom. Yum!
Blogging, what what??
I love this water bottle. (Don't mind me goofing in the back...) I read somewhere that using a straw can help increase the amount you drink. This is the most convenient water bottle I've ever own. I totally recommend it!
Later, I attempted to do some of my theory homework while sipping on my dessert smoothie. Bendy straws make it even better haha.
During a break in the dressing room I chowed down on my other carrot. My costume is perfect for carrot eating! By the way, that is definitely stage-ish make up. I never wear that much blush otherwise, come on!
I did also eat my cherry pie lärabar but I guess I forgot to upload the photo! It's really annoying when that happens because if I were to add it now it would appear at the top of the post and I would have to drag it down through all the text...sigh. I need a better way to blog here people. Suggestions???
We finally finished at 11 PM :/ Best believe I came home, washed all that crap off my face and went straight to bed! It was a good Sunday :)
