It’s RAWctober! Are you joining in?
We created an event for our community at Vegan’s Advice where we are all embarking on a 32 day raw vegan journey! We would love for you to come along on this ride with us and share your stories in our group as well!
A pre warning before we start this journey together, I’m not a professional food photographer! I always see these beautiful food posts and blogs where they spend more time photographing the food than they did making it! Well, that’s not us.
What you’re going to see is the diet of two vegans, living their normal lives, working 8+ hours a day and making achievable raw vegan meals for a month.
So, without further delay here is our first day of raw veganism!
Okay maybe I lied, this was our last meal before our vegan journey! Home made burgers with onion rings, chips, bulk mustard and beer 🤤🤤🤤
Okay now our first day!
A bloody big smoothie!
As you can see we filled it chock a block full off goodies, that’s Kale, Apple, Banana, Spinach and a handful of fresh Strawberries.
I’m blessed to have a girlfriend that already owned the Ninja Blender which has been fundamental in our first couple of days. It’s blitzing through whatever we throw at it!
The smoothie was great tasting but a little warm, if we were to do it again I would add frozen banana and some ice cubes as well!
After lunch we headed on a big bushwalk, we were full of energy and ready to tackle the day.
Next we did some meal prep for the coming days (so we thought).
This was the goal, we found the recipe online, it looked good, sounded delicious and was reasonably simple. Place some nuts, curry powder, seasonings and water in a blender and place it over some zoodles? All we have to do is that and we will have this absolutely stunning meal in front of us.
So far so good, the ingredients are in, ready to blend up!
After adding almost double the amount of water than we were asked we had a creamy, delicious, cashew curry sauce! Couldn’t be happier.
Next we made our zoodles! Super simple if you’ve got the right equipment. Now I’m not sure where ours is from (it was a gift) but I’ve heard racing reviews about the WellToBe version.
As usual I was running late for work so I had to sneak a banana in on the drive!
Next, I had a carrot sticks and home made hummus that we prepared earlier.
Another super simple recipe, chickpeas, lemon, salt, tahini and a Blitzer or hand blender and at $35 you can also use them for your smoothies.
And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for.
This is what our curry zoodles looked like as I had them for dinner..
Again, I’m not a food photographer!
Please excuse the takeaway container but I can tell you that with a touch of salt for seasoning it was absolutely delicious!
So much so that I almost licked the bowl clean!
And that’s what we ate on our first day!
