Chase the Rainbow

I have a confession to make……I have back-slidden rather badly over the past month. My weaknesses? Ice-cream, toasted cheese sandwiches and buttered toast. Oh and anything in pastry or on a cheese plate. This vegan thing is HARD and yes I am pretty much doing it on my own (well apart from my kids, who I indoctrinate mercilessly) And raw? Well I somehow manage a smoothie or a fresh juice each day, but still so far from where I want to be. Sigh….

My point? Well, none really. I just wanted to share that I too am human and that blogs are just a tiny window into a person’s life and not the whole picture. So, when peeping through that blog window and everything looks “hunky-dory”, keep in mind that it isn’t always. I push the mess aside on the kitchen bench to take “that” photo too! 😉

Here is what I made to cheer myself up and put that elusive rainbow back in the sky and in my kids (and my) tummies….

Tasting that elusive rainbow 😉

Our juicy rainbow comprised of what I had on hand…

  • 1/4 beetroot
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 oranges
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 cm length of fresh ginger
  • 1 granny smith apple
  • 1 cucmber
  • 1 rib celery
  • 2 kale leaves

It made up approximately 1 liter and tasted pretty good!

Dinner is vegan and almost raw, I promise! 🙂


About goingrawwithkids

My name is Rahni and I live in Sydney Australia with my four wonderful children and clever hubby. I love the simplicity of eating raw foods, not to mention all the health and environmental benefits that go along with it. This is my journey to discovering a more raw lifestyle with kids in tow!
