I’m proud of myself – I actually remembered to wear green today and made my breakfast smoothie extra green thanks to kale, spinach and hemp protein powder.
And later indulged in another green drink.
I think this one is my favorite flavor so far.
Amanda Seyfried’s wonderfully insightful comments on her raw diet from Friday is getting more attention.
“If I didn’t run and work out, there’s no way I would be this thin,” Seyfried told Glamour magazine. “But I have to stay in shape because I’m an actress. It’s f****d up and it’s twisted, but I wouldn’t get the roles otherwise. If I’d been a bit bigger, I don’t think they would have cast me for ‘Mamma Mia!’”
Ugh, this is a horrible misrepresentation of the raw diet! Clearly she’s not following the diet with a goal of improving her overall health, but just depriving herself for weight management raw diet style. Awful!
Anyway, I did create another broccoli dish in keeping the green theme today and furthering my obsession with finely chopped broccoli sides.
Basil Nut Broccoli
- 4 cups roughly chopped broccoli
- 1 cup basil leaves
- 1 cup Brazil nuts
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp. pink salt
- 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
Place all ingredients in a food processor and chop to desired texture. Warm in dehydrator at 115 degrees for 30 minutes if desired and enjoy. Makes 4 servings.
The Brazil nut oils blend the broccoli, basil and garlic flavors together nicely while keeping the side very moist and smooth. It also makes for a satisfying side that filled me up quickly. Hubby enjoyed this as well, it makes a great green rice or mashed potato replacement.
