My Breakfast this morning – Green Smoothie

This morning, I had a delicious Green Smoothie for breakfast. Here is the recipe:

Two Frozen Bananas
Handful Frozen Blueberries
2 large handfuls spinach
3 stalks celery
2 tablespoons chia seed gel
About 8 ice cubes
2 cups water
2 scoops stevia (I use the scoop in the container)

Blend in Vitamix!

It was so delicious! My husband and I split it, but I also had some raw granola. My appetite int he morning is nearly insatiable! Oh, I think I had an apple too.

My Favorite Raw Food Dessert Right Now – ‘Chocolate’ Ice Cream

One of my favorite weekend treats before going raw was Ben and Jerry’s Halfbaked Fro Yo. For those of you who have not had it, it is half chocolate chip cookie dough and half brownie chunk frozen yogurt. My husband and I would split a container at least once a month. Believe it or not, I have found a raw replacement that I love just as much if not better!

All you do is blend
3 frozen bananas with about
2 Tablespoons raw carob powder and
2 ‘scoops’ stevia (I use the scoop in the container).
I blend in the Vitamix until everything is mixed and then dish out with a spatula into little parfait glasses. We sometimes add our homemade gRAWnola and even some raw agave nectar. HEAVENLY! and GUILTLESS!!

Roku Tastes His First Raw Food – PAPAYA

Technically, a frozen banana was Roku’s first raw food. I started him with this at 4.5 months because his gums were a bit swollen which is a sign of teething. He sucked on it through the Munchkin fresh food feeder (I call it the ‘snacker’) much like he is the papaya in the video below. However, we decided to give him more banana in the snacker and it did not go down so well. He ended up filling up his diaper pretty well with poo which is an indication that it was either too much or his digestive tract is not ready for solids. He was a little over 4.5 months old at that point. A few weeks later I decided to let him try papaya. Papaya naturally contains digestive enzymes, so I thought that this would go down a little bit easier. He did very well the first day I gave it to him. I gave him less than a tablespoon in the snacker. I gave him a little more the next day and it came back up. So I have decided to wait until at least 6 months before I try out any other solids (and continue breastfeeding, ofcourse!). At 27 inches tall and 22 pounds, he is doing just fine on breast milk for now!
