Only Real Food…
So I had a bit of a defining moment today… Being hungry on my way home and in a supermarket I decided to get a protein bar (yes I know! Not very raw or fresh of me). But anyway I thought I would look at the ingredients and found such a long list of ‘things’ I did not understand and/or recognise as food that I put it back on the shelf (where it belongs)! I thought how can something so processed be good for me?..
Instead I came home and made a scrumptious salad and miso soup and felt full, satisified and nourished. The recipe is below and photos will follow when I get an attachment for my camera.
Cut small pieces of wakame into a cup, add miso paste to taste and boiling water.
1/2 Ice berg lettuce (heart) shredded
1/2 onion finely slice
1 carrot finely slice
6-8 small broccoli floretts
6-8 small cauliflower floretts
1-2 tblsp desicated coconut
2 Nori sheets sliced into strips
2 tblsp Olive Oil
Dash soy sauce
1 Lemon juiced
I egg boiled sliced
Combine all the salad ingredients and coconut in a large salad bowl.
Pour over olive oil, lemon juice and Soy Sauce.
Scatter over nori and egg
Serve with miso soup
Serves 1 for main or 2 for entree.
