I started with a lovely morning sun (variation on Sarma's drink in her book, Living Raw Food). I was out of ginger so I improvised a bit. It turned out really good though I would have preferred the bit of warmth that the ginger provides.
Then for lunch I had a salad which consisted of julienne daikon radish, carrots, parsnips, red bell pepper on a bed of spinach and a sesame dressing which included:
3/4 C Raw Tahini
2 TBS Olive Oil (it calls for sesame but I was out!)
juice from half a lemon
1/4 C water (or to taste)
I added a bit more water as I am not keen on really thick dressings, however, you can adjust the water to make it as thin or thick as you prefer.
It was really good. I think I put too much Daikon on it as I started to feel the heat and general head congestion I get from eating daikon too much and too fast but I still really enjoyed the meal overall. Next time I will likely reduce the radish considerably.
You will notice that I didnt really place any measurements with regards to the veggies... this is one of those things you can adjust anyway you wish to suit your liking and thus I just added things willy nilly in mine.
To go with dinner I made some flax crackers. I do not YET have the Excalibur dehydrator so I used the oven at the lowest temperature and kept the door ajar. This worked out pretty well but to save on energy and such its not something I would do too often. Fingers crossed that a little blue bird brings me a dehydrator for my birthday in a few weeks ;)
Dinner tonight is going to be a salad which was profiled on Ms. Lisa Paris' blog

Also I made a lovely little choci treat which I will be posting in another blog along with my review of Heathy Pace's e-book, Just Desserts.
