Cabbage: It's Not Just for Smelling Stinky

(To the person I was driving behind late this evening:  I was not tipsy!  FYI:  I didn't have a drop of wine- as punishment for breaking my no-workweek-wine rule on girls' night Wednesday.  I admit I may have been swerving, but that was only because I was trying to dip zucchini slices into hummus, which was straddled precariously between my legs.  It turns out it's a long way from my lap to my mouth, and many aggressive dips did not make it that far.  I wanted to clear up this misunderstanding when we both pulled into the gas station, but I had red pepper hummus spread between my legs and smeared all down my front.  Sigh.)

My breakfast smoothie was (accidentally) so damn good this morning.  It was incredibly creamy and filling; I sipped it happily all morning.

1 1/2 cups coconut water 
1 T maca
2 t spirulina
1 T coconut butter
3 cups spinach
1 frozen banana
2 pears
2 tangelos

Lunch was a cabbage wrapped burrito with the Raw Food Real World fixings I made last weekend.  Absolutely delish.  Cabbage leaves make excellent, crunchy wrappers.  

Last night I made a springform creation for my dinner date this evening, but pictures will have to wait until tomorrow.  I did manage to use up some coconut manna in the form of a coconut icing.   I topped the last of Sweetly Raw's chocolate mousse with a tiny icing tad.

Question:  What's your favorite burrito wrapping?  



  1. I went to Talkeetna for the first time yesterday! My girlfriend wanted to buy her dad a birthday present she had seen at a gift shop there and I went along for the ride. We had lunch at the brewry there and I drank two of the Mother Earth Ale's (delicious!) So though I don't drink but once a month or less, I enjoyed a mid-afternoon couple of beers and I'm not lookin back!

    P.S. Your town is so stinkin cute!

  2. Isn't it adorable? We love Twister Creek as well. Next time you stop through let me know and I'll meet you for a bevvie. :)

  3. Your food looks so good!! I am so glad I found your blog. I also made and posted some cauliflower "popcorn" that I coated with Abebas cracker batter; you should check it out.
    Peace & Raw Health,

    Thank you, Elizabeth! I just took a peek at your cauliflower popcorn. Very clever. I bet the crackers added a nice popcorny crunch.
