There are few appetizers I love more than the springroll. Here's a raw veggieful version that uses collard leaves as a flavourful wrapper with a bit of a crunch. Add in some marinated enoki mushrooms or sea veggie noodles for an added dimension of texture and taste.
I have in my hands the most delicious recipe for an amazing pre or post-workout shake. This smoothie works great for a quick burst of long lasting energy, combining the powerful health benefits of superfoods with carbohydrates and protein. The maca helps to temper and balance out your adrenals, the bananas are an excellent source of quickly digestible carbohydrates (40-60 minutes), the lucuma powder gives the shake a nice caramel flavor, and the almond milk makes it super creamy and smooth. Plus, the cinnamon aids in digestion and gives it a nice little send off. What could be better?
About a pint depending on how much liquid you use!
This is what I just had for breakfast, it was amazing! It was meant to be a smoothie but came out with more of a cakemixey texture. More liquid would probably make it more smoothie like. Also, you could probably use less liquid and dehydrate it into muffin/cookie type things.
To my delight, this shake is more vanilla than banana. I made this to cure a craving my husband was having. I think one of the keys is to use a less ripe frozen banana. The less ripe the less banana flavor. This recipe was the answer to my previously SAD eater husband when he told me he was REALLY craving a vanilla milkshake. It's not just delicious, it also provides great energy and usable protein! Check out other recipes at http://reneegoesraw.wordpress.com/
