as well as including a lot of garlic in meals at the moment to fight off lurgies, i'm also trying to include a lot of raw foods for the same reason. raw foods are also often high in fibre (that makes the food crunchy) which is lost when it is heated (which is why it goes soft when baked). and, being familiar with the texture of raw foods is something i'd like to maintain year round, instead of just in summer salads too.
so this is what we had one day this week
it's pretty self-explanatory but i used cream cheese (white bean spread or hummus would be yummier), spinach leaves, crushed pineapple, grated carrot and cheese.
and a bit of peanut butter in celery is always a treat isn't it?
the kids actually squealed and clapped their hands over this lunch!
(although i have fairly reliable evidence not everyone ate their raw spinach leaves!)
hope you've all had a lovely week. i have some exciting news to share and a few announcey-thingies to make so hopefully i'll find time to share it all SOON!
