Some people struggle with eating broccoli raw but it’s really crunchy and nice! It’s a really refreshing salad, and I can see us making it often, with the warmer summer months ahead.
- 2 heads of fresh broccoli
- 1 small red onion, finely chopped
- arils from 1 pomegranate\
- 1 1/4 cup raisins
- generous 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, toasted
- 1 cup plain yoghurt
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- freshly ground black pepper
I needed a decent juice. This long weekend has been pretty unhealthy for me. We celebrated O’s first birthday with a party on Saturday. I can’t even remember what happened yesterday (can you tell I’m tired?). But let me tell you, when you’re so used to eating “clean” and no sugar, dairy and minimal gluten, having a day or 2 of gorging on shit can really mess you around!
Sugar really affected me. I felt it almost instantly. And dairy affected Olivia (she is still letting some rippers go!). I was actually looking forward to eating like normal again once the party was over. And I love being able to say this is now our normal! It’s great to be able to see how crap I really felt though, it reassures me I’m definitely on the right path.
- 1 beetroot (medium size!)
- 1 carrot
- 2 small oranges
- 1 green apple
We thought about buying a new juicer but it’s low on the “thing we need to buy” list. So I just made do without. Hubby being the fixer he is, tried to soak the metal mesh basket of my juicer in vinegar and bicarb.
It was pretty clogged with “juice junk”… you could barely see through it. Perhaps that’s why my juicer wasn’t working anymore? It was worth a try.
It had 2 carrots, 2 oranges, 2 green apples and 1 lemon. I juice green apples because they are lower in sugar compared to the red varieties and help to digest carbs. Winning!
Hubby was going out for the day (apparently it’s something called work?) so I did another batch (2, 2, 2, 1) and put it in an old Loving Earth jar for him to take on the run.
It was delicious. And I have plenty of left over – it’s hard to pace myself with juices but I know it’s still full of sugars so I try my hardest to have just one big glass a day!
Tell me some of your favourite juice combos!
I hate cheesecake. I always have. But raw cheesecake… well I could eat that every day! It’s soooo good. And whats better is it’s actually good for you! And so easy to make even though it doesn’t look like it. I wanted to share this post now, because with the weather warming up (at least here in Oz!) it’s a great dessert to take to a backyard BBQ or to have stashed in your own freezer as a sneaky dessert at night.
