Rawritos, Lasagna, and Hummus! Oh My!

Hi Rawkers!

I woke up early this morning and started in on today's un-cooking right away, beginning with the rawritos.  They are in the dehydrator as I type.  So is the spinach lasagna, which I made next.  I'm very much looking forward to dinner!

I made myself a smoothie and found that I didn't have bananas, so I used 1/2 a small avocado instead, along with romaine, swiss chard, blueberries, and apple, and it was lovely.  Oh!  And I also included pineapple, using the rest of it to wash my face, lol!  I spent the whole time make the lasagna with a slightly tightening skin mask.

By now it was closing in on noon, and I was just starting to get hungry for lunch, and did that "there's nothing to eeeeaaaat" thing with the fridge door open.  All I could see was leaves!  Kale, spinach, romaine, chard, cilantro, parsley, herbs, etc.  I was thinking, "Ah, man, just something quick.  I'm been making things all morning, now I just want to eat!" lol.  So I chopped a bit of cucumber and red pepper, and took out a couple big wads of herb salad that I bought boxed, and chango-presto, lunch.  BUT!  I wanted more than that.  We had Ezekiel sprouted grain tortilla, so I whipped up some hummus.  Now I'm good n' full and ready for my afternoon.  I have friend coming over, yay!

I'll update later after everything's finished un-cookin'.

UPDATE:  Well... as usual, the rawritos never made it out of the dehydrator!  A little piece here, a little piece there...pretty soon there are crumbs!  They are highly addictive.  Fed some to my friend (who is not raw) and she flipped out.  Found them unbelievable, and later when I was then at her place, she mentioned them to her kids and then tried to describe rawritos and they just made the "are you guys high?" face, because we were saying "Well there's sunflower seeds, and and..."


We decided that describing rawritos was like describing a color to someone who hasn't seen color.  Other than to say, they taste exactly like 'Doritos' but without the chemical crap!  lol But then, they don't believe ya!
Just gonna have to bring some over...if I ever make a batch that sees the light of day!

As for the spinach lasagna, it's now 11:30 at night, and it's still in there because it was so wet.  So we decided to dehydrate it until bedtime, stick it in the fridge, then put it back in tomorrow afternoon so that it's ready for dinner then. 

Tonight's dinner, we just grazed on hummus, tortillas, and stolen rawritos...and Steve had a salad.

I took the dog for a long walk (2nd one today.  My energy is definitely coming back!  I want to do more, for longer parts of the day.  This was at 7:30, when we were all settled in after dinner.  When I'm not raw, on an evening I don't have a gig, that would be when I'd change into my sweats and slippers, turn on the fireplace, and hunker down for the evening...internet'in, practicing guitar, watching tv, etc. Now, I'm restless and want to walk or learn Spanish or something.)  We ended up going on a 45 minute walk; it was great.  Just me and Gracie.

When we returned, Steve and I went to Whole Foods because I was looking for Nama Shoyu, which my local grocer doesn't carry.  Turns out, neither does WF!  (More like WTF)  I was impressed with the guy who helped me, he took my name and number and said he'd call me back tomorrow to let me know if they can order some in.  Even though there are other places I could go, I found myself unable to refuse this helpful gesture.  So "Mike" will be calling.

Did end up getting a bottle of Vitamin D3...I don't take vitamins but the more I read about this, the more I think it would be a good idea... you know, the sunshine vitamin.  Well I live in rainy Vancouver, Canada.  What sold me, though, was that on the bottle (by nu-life) it actually says The Happy Pill. teehee :)

Well, off I go to bed...it's 11:45 and our love is alive!

Ooops... forgot my 'things that make me happy' photos:  Laughing my head off as I watch my dog Gracie whip down the highway with her head out the window, jowls a-flappin'.  

And how absolutely tiny I look next to my youngest son!!

Hiya, D!!

Yes, I relate to breaking out of holiday eating! For me, Christmas day itself was the blip, because I was determined not to get derailed altogether. I'm feeling better for it, too!

Love you long time,
