[back] Raw food
A few days a week, my main meal of the day is an upmarket Green Smoothie, one
with frills. I blend it in the evening after work, it takes about an hour. This
is the recipe:
I snack on raw nuts like macadamia and pecan, for crunch. This meal completely
nourishes me. I wake up full of bounce. If I have bean sprouts I may add them,
but then it keeps me awake at night, it's so much protein.
- one full 12-inch tray of Living greens from my
Sprouter sunflower, or
green pea shoot, or a mix of alfalfa, broccoli, etc.,
- a few large green leaves I alternate spinach, cabbage, lettuce, kale,
collard, whatever I pick from my indoor
- a fibrous veggie I alternate celery, broccoli, or carrot, I'd use beet
but it's too messy,
- a vegetable fruit I alternate cucumber, zucchini, baby marrow or
summer squash, all those little veggies that have seeds,
- 2-3 sweet fruits especially sweet South African fruits like juicy
pineapple, mango, pear, and
- half an avocado for smoothness.
For a high-protein blend, Energy Soup will do the trick!

new tray of greens every day on rotation;
- 1-2 cups of bean sprouts alternate daily between mung, lentil and
green pea (beans grow well in Sprouter, or in jars or hemp bags);
- half to one avocado for its clean mono-unsaturated fat (like olive
oil) with no cholesterol, and rich in enzymes avocado "savorizes" the
- one apple for sweetness, and to help digest all the proteins;
- 2 tablespoons of seaweed for its 60+ minerals and trace minerals, like
iodine for thyroid alternate daily between dulse, kelp and black nori (the
Raspberry-banana-hempseed smoothie; raw food breakfast recipe
This smoothie is great for breakfast or if you get hungry in between meals.
It is also a good food for kids.
1 ripe banana
2 handfuls raspberries
1 tablespoon shelled hemp seed
½ cup water
Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.
Pour in a nice glass and enjoy!
The hemp seed is rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
Adding hemp seed gives this smoothie a rich flavor and helps to slow down the
absorption of the fruit sugars. This creates a more stable blood sugar and a
long lasting energy.
