Pasta: "Spring Sprouts & Sauce"
What is pasta? whatever you make it to be. Rethink what we have been socialized and taught to believe is "food" - eat organic, freshly picked and live foods - nourish and honor your body, the earth and the spiritual and healing energy our Godly garden gifts have to offer us. I am currently eating mono meals to simple raw meals. All meals are based on intuitition and what I am growing myself or have on hand from my farmer's market. The least complicated the meal the easier it is for the body to digest so I am mixing no more than 3 things (max) per meal... Mono or as close to mono is my current best bet. So let me share simple recipes that are redesigned deliciousness, nutritious, easily digestible, tantalizing to the taste buds and quick to make (my meals take 5 minutes to make or under...) - Give your body a break, eat a simple, non complicated, raw meal today!
Heaping handful of organic sunflower sprouts/greens (crunchy pasta!)
1 Ripe organic avocado (mmm nutty, creamy, dreamy!)
2 Handfuls organic parsley (I am currently on a parsley high but you can
use any green or herb for this one)
*** Filtered water (I used oxygen water)
Place pasta in a dish
I used a small food processer to chop my parsley, then I added my
avocado and a little water to make it a creamy consistency. Blend.
The reason I chose to use a food processer to chop and blend this
is because the blade acts as a extra set of teeth for me and breaks
food down so I can digest it better. In a perfect world all my ideal
preperation would be picking it from the earth and eating it as I found
it to respect it's natural state : )
Pour on top of pasta. Enjoy the natural tastes of the foods being used.
This one is simple and you can actually acknowledge and respect all
ingredients used without getting lost in a complicated concoction. It's
like saying "Hello beautiful sprouts, avocado and parsley - thank you for
your beautiful offering of vitamins, minerals and life force. I have come
to accept what you have to offer and pay gratitude in each loving bite."
"If you aren't connecting with your body, mind, soul, food and spirituality
then are you truly connecting with RAW?" ... Long live RAW! Johnny
Enjoy a visual of my sunflower pasta hanging out on a "sushi plate" my
Mom gave me (first time I've used it, I generally only eat out of pottery,
wooden and bamboo stuff) keeping it cool in the sunshine next to a rock
waterfall outside my apartment. Thanks Mom : )
