Mex-Jam Quinoa (a recipe I saw for “Mexican quinoa” by @_veganheaven_ and me being me, added some Jamaica to it)
1 onion chopped
3 cloves of garlic minced
2 bell peppers chopped (I used green)
1 zucchini chopped (I used yellow)
1 cup of quinoa
1.5 cups veggie broth
3 cups of canned crush tomatoes
14 oz can of lentil soup (I was supposed to use black beans but I customize)
Add to taste (between 1-2 tablespoon for me) the following:
Ginger, cummin, turmeric, paprika
1 teaspoon of jerk sauce
2 green onions
Half a cup fresh cilantro chopped
Half a cup fresh parsley chopped
1. Sauté onions in a large pot or pan with oil of your choice (I used coconut) for 3 minutes
2. Add garlic, bell peppers, and zucchini and cook for 2-3 min on medium high heat
3. Add the rest of the ingredients except lime juice, green onions, parsley and cilantro. Cover and reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. After add lime juice, green onions, cilantro and parsley .
4. Serve on a bed of greens, with avocado, pumpkin seeds and black pepper.
Semi Raw Cleanse Day 5:
So.... I bought lunch today and decided to try something new at a local vegan spot. I got the Quinoa Bowl. The combination was.... interesting. Lol. Charred, sweet, green, spicy.
Semi Raw Cleanse Day 5:
I made it! 😄
Will definitely do this again next week! Why stop here?
Green juice for the win 🚩I officially love the smell of green juice in the making 😋😋
Watercress, lacinato kale, pear, apple, cucumber, ginger and lemon juiced.
Semi Raw Cleanse Day 3:
Lunch/dinner/final meal of the day. Savory maitake mushrooms (aside from the sun, a great source of vitamin D), sliced zucchini, chopped peppers on a bed of lacinato kale sided with hemp seeded avocado.
A full dose of vitamins, minerals, proteins and healthy fats. 😋😋💪💪
Semi Raw Cleanse Day 3:
I love smoothies but sometimes I just want to enjoy different textures and bursts of flavors in each bite. Kudos to myself for picking a good batch of blueberries lol 😋😋 (a great antioxidant)
On the side, a nutritious and filling hemp shake (hemp milk, date). Hemp seeds has complete proteins, iron, fiber, B vitamins, magnesium, folate and other vital minerals.

Lunch/Dinner: lacinato kale, red peppers, boiled plantains, okra, avocado with hemp seeds, with turmeric tahini dressing. 😋😋😊
Herbal tea at night.
Semi Raw Cleanse:
This week my goal is to go mostly raw with a little bit of cooked foods (quinoa, millet, porridge, mushrooms, tea). Every time I plan to do it, I get sidetracked, but I'm sticking to it this time! 👍
Today I'm starting my day with a green juice (lacinato kale, watercress, cucumbers, pears, lemon and ginger), then nuts (I'll soak the next round), peaches, canteloupe, and a pesto salad (arugula, millet, tomatoes, almonds, avocado, and homemade pesto), and herbal tea at night. 😊😊
May your food be colorful on this beautiful Sunday 😊
Butternut squash, chickpeas and peppers in spiced coconut sauce, fluffy millet, and spinach leaves topped with walnut spread.
Our plates were so clean! 👌👏
Chickpea flour chocolate chip cookies. .
I found the recipe online and substituted the egg and sugar.
1. The flavour was good. I replaced the sugar with honey/molasses. It somehow tasted a bit "wheaty" but I liked it.
2. The texture was chewy and soft, just the way i like.
3. I hate the smell of chickpea flour
4. The dough was hard to work with. Hence the ugly cookies
5. Maybe I'll try using almond/coconut flour next. 🌟🌟🌟/5
Pesto! One of my favourite sauces to make. I use it in sandwiches, on pizza, in wraps, on pasta and on roasted veggies.
