Raw Food Cleanse

Hi lovelies!! I've heard so much buzz lately about this whole raw food thing! And lucky for Adam and I his sister gave us this amazing book (Raw Food Cleanse by Penni Shelton) and I couldn't wait to get my hands on some of these delicious raw food recipes!! Anyways I went to our local farmers market Ridley's… which has thee most amazing deals on fresh local produce… And I got everything I could possibly think of that was a raw yummy treat. We had our first raw dinner the other night and it was AMAZING! I made the best dressing / recipe below / and paired it with fresh greens and some bright delicious veggies! The way I felt after eating a completely raw salad with homemade raw dressing was amazing! I can't believe how much of an impact dressing can have on the overall feeling of eating a salad. Anyways I will keep you guys posted on my overall results and how I feel and continue to put up some fun recipes! Also if you haven't gotten this book get it asap! Eating raw can be delicious and I've proved that to myself more than once! Hope you guys like this! XX.

I had a lot of fun taking pictures of our fresh delicious produce!! I thought I'd have some fun with it =). But anyways this book is amazing and the recipe of the dressing is as followed: 

Cilantro Lime Dressing: 
1 cup fresh cilantro
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon lime zest
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
Pinch of minced garlic

Puree cilantro, olive oil, lime juice, orange juice, lime zest, salt, pepper and garlic in a blender or food processor until smooth. 

Delicious…. and super easy! In our salad I put down organic spinach, fresh broccoli (uncooked), blackberries, bell peppers, and raw unsalted cashews and topped it with the delicious dressing! I can hardly wait to get my hands on another salad with that dressing! I will post another recipe for a smoothie we've been having that is to die for and is SOOOOO healthy! Yaya!
