We've been blending up lots of smoothies with various combinations of greens, fruit, veggies and herbs. My bf has really been into the smoothie makin' and has introduced me to new flavor additions like basil and lime. One of the great things about sharing a kitchen is being exposed to new ideas.
And juice. This one was inspired by HiHoRosie. We were chatting on twitter about making a gold juice from gold beets and she made her beautiful Sunflower juice. I gathered up some golden ingredients and made the Gold Standard. It's more of an orange color because of all the carrots, but the gold beet flavor really stands out.
Made with these:
I was craving some crunchy greens, so I made a simple salad with butter lettuce, arugula, avocado, hemp seeds, and a sweet ginger vinaigrette. So fresh and delicious!
This afternoon Chef T and I have spent some time in the kitchen making some raw vegan snacks. Post about today's creations coming soon.
Hope you're holiday weekend is off to a great start!
