Foodity Food

For anyone who hasn't tried raw zucchini pasta--DO IT. It's simply DELISH, 100% You can make a raw marinara sauce if you want a fully raw dish, make a cooked one if you're not, or you can simply open a jar of pasta sauce like I did. Here it's with roasted brussels sprouts (my fave..), what was left of my gazpacho, and some mustard chickpeas. So amazingly good.

(Here it is just mixed--so amazingly good. It really didn't need any garnishes.)

Oh, and for those dieters out there--each serving is 1-2 baby squash (depending how much you want to eat)--which is 2-6 calories. Seriously, a large baby squash is all of 3 calories. Tomato sauce tends to be very low calorie too. Great great thing to eat to help fill you up--but obviously make sure you've got some real calories accompanying it--moderation not starvation. ;)

Here I have an apple salad--sliced gala apples, raw pumpkin seeds, and an apple vinaigrette (apple butter for sweet, apple cider for sour, and cinnamon-infused sunflower oil).

And here's my exotic themed fruit breakfast, because I love fruit. ^__^

These were such amazing things. Of the above, the gazpacho, pasta, salad, and fruit are raw. (Duh.) So.. everything but the brussels sprouts and pasta sauce... well fine.

Wow - you eat sooo well!
I roasted some brussel sprouts alongside a whole load of other veggies the other night after reading your 'rustic roasts' posts - OMG - so delish!

lol... Food is one of my great joys in life, so I do like to enjoy it I admit--but I, like everyone else, whips out a bag of popcorn here and there. (I've been eating buckets of "salt and vinegar" popcorn lately, with ketchup.. wierd? maybe.. but its tasty. And really cheap, since I buy the kernels in bulk and just shove them in a paper bag in the nuke!)
