Food

I'm drinking instant creamer in my real coffee this morning, as opposed to real cream in my instant coffee, as I usually do.
On that food note- I was recalling this morning a period in my life where I tried to go raw. Raw foods, that is. I was reading this chick's blog and she made it sound so easy and fun. Well, it was okay for a few days, but it was a lot harder than I thought. I don't think I could go 100% raw now, but I'd like to incorporate more healthful foods in their natural state into my whole family's diet. Here is a recipe that looks like it might start me on the right track:
Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups pecans
1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded dried coconut
1 tablespoon lucuma powder*(optional)
Pinch Himalayan crystal salt
1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup raisins
10 dates, pitted

Directions

Process all of the ingredients, except for the raisins and dates, in a food processor fitted with the S-blade, until coarsely ground. Add the raisins and dates and continue processing until the mixture begins to stick together when pressed between your fingers. Roll and form into desired shapes and sizes

I tried to do the raw thing and I lasted less than 24 hours...which is crazy because I love vegetables and nuts and I'm a vegetarian to boot...but apparently I really like my food cooked. Also, that recipe sounds really sweet....like, candy sweet. Also, my word verification is "puphies." Cute.
