Don't worry, though. I don't stop eating my soup or hot tea or anything. It's not that severe of a change. I just find more ways to work raw veggies into my life.
Tonight's meal is a perfect example. I had a lot of free limes from the co-op, an avocado, a jalapeno, some cilantro and carrots. They were practically screaming to become a spicy quinoa salad.
Here's what I threw together:
About 1 1/2 cups quinoa, cooked and cooled
2 carrots, shredded
1 jalapeno, deseeded and minced
1 handful cilantro, chopped
1 avocado, chopped
1 lime, zested and juiced
salt to taste
So good and so simple!!
