I don’t know what it is about October, but I usually find myself eating lots of raw foods during this particular month.
It may be, in part, thanks to the unusually warm weather we have here in LA at this time of the year, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it has more to do with my desire to make lots of raw desserts with Halloween just around the corner.
I’ve had a busy week preparing for my next business trip, so Pressed Juicery has been a life-saver lately.
Because their green juices tend to be a bit apple-heavy for my taste, I like to mix them up to create my perfect blend–> this one was a mix of Greens 3, Greens 4, and Roots 2. There are a LOT of different veggies in this 16 oz bottle, plus a kick of cayenne and ginger!
Romaine salad, topped with shredded carrots, 1/2 an avocado and a homemade sun-dried tomato dressing. I’m pretty sure this dressing isn’t good enough to share yet, but I can’t seem to get enough of it. I’ll definitely be experimenting with it more in the coming weeks!
After my salad, I enjoyed a serving of Cherry Chocolate Avocado pudding, sweetened with honey.
I don’t normally make my food look so pretty before eating, but I figured this was a good opportunity to update the photos posted with the original recipe. (The old ones were taken with my cell phone!)
I realized that I’m seriously lacking in Halloween-themed recipes, so it seems some homemade candy is in order ASAP. These experimental “Mounds Bar” truffles turned out delicious– and I sampled more than my fair share, just to be sure.
A large mixed green salad topped with shredded carrots, and smothered in creamy tahini dressing.
Followed by an individual portion of raw almond butter fudge… which I ate too quickly to take a picture of!
