Raw Girl in Japan

Archive for the ‘daikon’ Category

HaveĀ  found a space to host regular raw food classes.

Later this year will be hosting yoga and raw food days.

The raw food restaurant in Tokyo is closing (for a second time in a few months). Am on a quest to get more raw food, in more restaurants.

Am gonna make RAW BIG in Japan. Let’s put them greens to good use, and spice up the daikon dishes…

Please leave comments about what you would like to see in this blog and on my upcoming website…yes, yes…I know more recipes are in the pipeline.

Love and gratitude

Again the sun shines and I have all windows open to allow the gentle breeze to filter through.

I had a friend visiting over the weekend, hence no weekend blogging (sorry). She came bearing gifts – baby carrots as she knows I just love munching on them doing a bunny impression. I am so happy when I receive fruit and veg as gifts.

My friend although not a raw foodist loves to try all things new. Infact, as part of her Xmas present last year I gave her Shazzie’s recipe book. For Sunday brekkie I made the three of us a mango smoothie with raw almond milk (made by moi) with flaxseed oil and a little macca. We ate fruit during the day,then in the evening I made us Daikonetti with a tomato and red pepper sauce.

Although it was nice, it didn’t quite work. Firstly, spiralizing daikon caused it to be a little mushy leaving too much water. If I did it again I would leave it to drain for a while or simply use a peeler to make strips. The sauce consisted of peppers, red bell pepper, garlic, red onion and basil – sounds yummy eh? Yet, when mixed with the sharp taste of the daikon it was a little overpowering. So maybe I’ll keep that sauce when using zuchinni or carrots, and I’ll play with a pesto sauce for the daikon.

Monday morning hubby made raw porridge with starwberries and lunch was a green smoothie. My friend loved it all.

Today has been a fruit and water day and tomorrow lunchtime I start my first 24 hour water cleanse which will be a weekly thing. Will have a smoothie for breakfast the water till Thursday lunchtime, when I will eat fruit to break the cleanse gently. Think I’ll get some water melon to eat as that will be gentle on the stomach.
