Have you ever considering to eat Raw Food ? The foods are consumed in their purest, most simple form - un cooked ; unprocessed ? Or become vegetarian ? I never consider my self as a vegetarian ; don't get wrong I'm not eat big chunk of steak for so long ; I prefer to eat fish , tofu . Well - I try my best to eat a healthy food whenever I can ! This post is not talk about a healthy raw food, how good balance diet is.. NO, you yourself know what best for your body. I just want to change my eating habit a little bit.
This happened when I saw friend of mine, a very talented young lady, Dita - she is posting about a healthy smoothie recipes, heey .. it's look good, think the taste must be good too. Do I interest to try ? well, I tag the recipes already but not try yet, until I went to local library and by accident find 'Raw Energy Book by Stephanie Tourles' . I read the book from 1st page until finish while waiting my daughter practice at the gym. It was interesting book, and next morning , I filled my shopping basket with some of fresh fruits, fresh vegetables.
I try one of Stephanie's recipe, to my surprise the taste is so good - I drink a big cup for my breakfast - and I didn't feel craving for sweet at all. Well, this is not diet recipe but I consider as detox drink , I still eat 'normal' lunch, and drink another cup for dinner , wow I feel good ...
So daily I combine recipe from Stephanie Tourles and Dita (check her recipe HERE) , they recipes satisfy my hunger in a good way :)
