~ Raw Pasta in the New Year ~

Raw pasta is something we have at least a couple of times a week. You can have it in so many ways. It has been almost a year since I discovered raw foods. I am thrilled to know this is a change that will last forever. It is a challenge switching over to thinking raw when you have been brought up on cooked foods. The temptation seems to always be there to draw me back to the (SAD) diet, but I know how much better I feel when I eat raw foods.

I find being tired, or not putting the effort ahead of time, can set you up to compromise and eat things you know are not good. Plan ahead by washing and chopping your veggies and leave them in the fridge in a sealed container. If I do end up eating something I don't want, which still happens, I always add something green to it. Cilantro is a very good example.

It is my hope to drink a green smoothie for breakfast every morning this year and for an afternoon snack I want to have some green juice. This little pasta dish is an example of a simple raw meal. The pasta on it's own seems to not be enough, but with the avocado it is very satisfying.

I want to wish everyone the best year ever in 2010. Raise your green glass to a healthy and prosperous new year !!
