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….
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! 🙂
