D and I just finished dinner and had the realization that we've successfully prepared raw dinner 4 nights in a row. Yeah! He said it may be the longest stretch since we've lived in our apartment (August) - whoa - didn't think we ate out that much. It's funny how you don't realize how often you do something until you stop doing it... like coffee... you don't think you have an addiction til someone takes it away. Or sweets... or salt...
Today was a good day, I had a delicious Raw bar for lunch that I'll tell you about later. D has officially lost about 8 pounds and I'm down about 1.5 -- hmm sounds about right. Energy level is about the same, but I am not experiencing that 2:00 coma...you know when you're sitting at work after lunch and you just want to take a nap. Not I...
NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT....(cue trumpets!)
Raw Falafel Wrap
adapted from Rawkin beanless falafel recipe.
2 c. soaked Almonds
3/4 c. Cilantro
4 tbsp Lemon Juice
2 tbsp Tahini (I used sesame seeds)
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 1/2 tsp ground Cumin
1 tsp Sea Salt
3/4 c. Water
Tomorrow night we're going out to eat for a friend's birthday. It'll be our first restaurant visit since being raw. I called ahead to order special salads with no dressing - so we should be good to go. I'll report back with the results...my biggest worry is that it'll be awkward that we have to eat "special" food. But they're good friends so they'll get over it =D
