WIAW: some days are just RAW

Breakfast: Oranges, Kiwi and Pluot

Every once in a while I have one of those days where I want to KNOW, with confident peace of mind, that I'm putting all natural pure goodness into my body for nutrition. On those days, I choose to eat mostly raw. This WIAW represents one of those days.

A salad of mushrooms, tomato, carrot, celery, avocado, cucumber, green onion, dill and cilantro ( salt, pepper and lemon juice)
Fresh homegrown tomatoes, avocado and my take on Patatas Bravas

Patatas Bravas

1 Large Russet Potato, Diced
1/3 large onion, finely minced
2 cloves of garlic finely minced
1/4 cup of chopped cilantro
Serrano Chile, about 3 cm worth, diced
olive oil
Sea Salt

Coat the bottom of your sautee pan with olive oil, once warm add the potatoes and let the diced potato cook on all sides till it is golden brown.(Medium heat or low heat works best) This is when patience will be rewarded.  Once the potatoes are done add in the garlic, onion and serrano. Mix the potatoes every few minutes , letting the added ingredients cook thoroughly and flavor the potatoes. Lastly, turn off the pan add the cilantro, salt and pepper and toss. 

This would go great with an addition of cheese like pepperjack but I was keeping it vegan :)

I may have snuck in a spoonful of Nutella.... a girl has chocolate cravings. It's ok to give in once in a while. :)


  1. Wow - everything looks delicious! I try to eat healthy....but I constantly want junk. Good for you for wanting the good stuff!

  2. Just looking at the photos of your fruit and veggies makes me feel healthy. That means I can go have cake now, right?

  3. This looks delicious, but carbs are also really good for your brain- something like quinoa is a whole grain and is really healthy too!
