Life is Sweeter with Fruit!

I haven't been around here's been quite busy.

I have recently tweaked my diet; eating WAY more fresh fruit, keeping raw gourmet foods to a minimum, drastically trying to reduce my salt intake, limiting dried fruits, reducing daily intake of fats, etc. I'm doing this experiment in an attempt to cater to my bodies needs as it continues to evolve nutritionally. I would like to work on adding more sprouts, sea vegetables, algae, and greens into my diet because they are yummy and make me feel good. My favourite foods currently are; papaya, mango, young coconut, coconut water, fresh dates and greens.

I have been making tons of delicious fruit smoothies that Brent and I have been enjoying...they are so hydrating! I will start writing down my smoothie recipes so I can share them with you all, but until then I have this yummy low fat smoothie recipe you may enjoy.

Sunshine Smoothie
1/4 cup of goji berries (soaked in 1/2 cup water for at least 15 minutes)
3 cups pineapple
2-3 medjool dates
1/2 cup mango

Add all ingredients including soaking water and blend until smooth.

I will soon have to start practicing some recipes for the Farmers Market that I will be apart of this summer. I tried out a new grawnola recipe for a friend who put an order in for some raw goodies and it turned out awesome! Being a lover of granola most of my life, I have tried many variations and this is my favourite to date. I will use this recipe to create multiple grawnola flavours and as a base for a my grawnola bar experimentation marathon in search for the perfect recipe, possibly for my ebook. I'm really looking forward to selling my raw goodies to people and having them experience tasty food that's full of life! For me sharing this lifestyle is important because it's given me a new, healthy life full of sunshine.
The Farmers Market is going to be so much fun...I can't wait!

Hope everyone is having an excellent weekend. It's supposed to be double digits here next that's exciting :)
