Spring Cleaning out my Insides

I've been more determined to eat healthier lately because the weather is warming and meals can be raw and sunshine or something yadda yadda but also because of an inspiring new book, which I'll get to in the next post. Til then:
Breakfast:


Lunch:
Sunflower seed pate from Kristen's Raw (no longer a raw, vegan website, but still with occasional vegan recipes) in endive leaves with tomatoes, bell pepper, carrots, and zucchini. Why do I not stuff endive leaves more often?

Dinner:
Kinda-raw miso soup: kale, carrot ribbons, zucchini noodles, onion, seaweed, and spices in warm miso broth.
Good stuff.

  1. These kind of simple, satisfying meals could convince me to eat cleaner, too. Perhaps you'll inspire me in turn... I could certainly stand to cut back on the sugar a bit, after so many years of baking and snacking nonstop.

    1. Sugar is my absolute worst vice! I have such a sweet tooth. Supposedly, it's fairly easy to break but...

    2. Who the hell wants to break it? It's like great, yes, let's take away happiness in life...

  2. Those stuffed endive leaves look SO good. I really need to try out some different nut/seed pates! The problem is that they're a huge pain in the ass without a food processor.

    1. I really want to make walnut taco meat next. Do you not have a food processor? That DOES sound near impossible.

  3. I've been feeling the same way! I'm spring cleaning everything... my body, my space and most importantly my totally messed up head ;) Your raw meals look delicious. Lunch is so pretty! Your soups always look delicious too. Looking forward to hearing about the book and seeing more raw meals :)

    1. Oh yes, I'm doing to head thing too, haha. I feel like once you introduce one healthy habit into yr life, other fall into place, so that's nice.
      I'm excited to eat more raw!

    1. But wait you will apparently have to. Sorry. Hopefully I'll get into the book by the weekend!

  5. I think I need to spring clean my cupboards and freezer, first, then me. It's been years since I've made a sunflower seed pate. Maybe I'll look up that recipe.

    1. I already did that part! Though of course, then comes the restocking...

  6. I am totally following your lead; moving from winter foods to spring foods requires a bit of a clean out. I need at least three days of only produce to reset my bread and pasta loving system. Too bad I just made cornbread! Ha! It'll keep in the fridge, right? ;)

    1. Haha, cornbread isn't that bad. It's not like you just made an entire cheesecake! Although, "Unknown" gave me a great idea about what to do with cornbread if it doesn't get eaten - croutons! Cornbread croutons on a really nice salad would probably be delicious.

  7. I should stuff more endive leaves too. Their perfect shape just screams, "Put yummy things in me and stuff your face!".

    1. Yeah, much easier to handle than romaine leaves.

  8. I need to start eating healthier too. So far, this week, I've planned to make nachos and fried vegan cream cheese wontons so.....maybe next week? :-)

    1. Fried vegan cream cheese wontons! I'll have to live vicariously through you on that one.

  9. If that's eating cleaner, I'm not sure why I don't do it every day it looks that good. (Why I don't do it every day = sugar, caffeine are also pretty darned good!)
