Raw food

I'm experimenting with raw food. Just keep hearing about how healthy it is and good it is for your energy level. A friend of mine made a really delicious salad with red cabbage, sunflower seeds, apples, dried cranberries, carrots and li hing mui powder. Okay, salads are usually raw, but this was like a slaw. It keeps well in the fridge for a day or two so it's easy to grab as a snack.

Tonight I made one in the food processor using cabbage, pears, yellow bell pepper, radishes, carrots and almonds. I drizzled lemon juice on it and it turned out great. Really refreshing.

I found some recipes on this site: http://www.rawfoodlife.com/ The fact that he's not trying to create dishes that imitate cooked food is appealing to me.

My cookbook collection consists of raw "cook" books by Charlie Trotter and Matthew Kinney, but I found them way too complicated. Dehydrating and all that is way too much.

Anyway, I think I'm just going to experiment by adding raw food (besides our normal salad) to our diet. I know I'll never be able to go all the way without a substitute for bacon. Ha!
