I’ve been off track for the past few weeks a few relapses into processed food (which makes me feel terrible and like not going to the studio. go figure!)…trying to figure out to what extent I want to be raw, because I definitely crave more protein. I have been reading and observing the result of the Maximized Living Nutrition Plan which the chiropractor we started going to incorporates into all of his patients’ plans. It’s the best thing I’ve read in the world of nutrition so far, and most of it is raw! But more about that later…
I can’t give myself too hard a time; I have been moving and living in other peoples’ houses, which contributes to my food regime getting off track…but it doesn’t have to. I bring with me the foods I need, but I get seduced by things like Nutella and peanut butter cookies in my friends’ houses and have to buy my own – and then ensues a binge. So unfortunately I still have some work left to do to figure out how to avoid those triggers – maybe remembering how terrible I feel the next day!
This weekend I was inspired to experiment with raw or almost raw desserts that I could bring to a dinner gathering. The sorbet recipe below is an adaptation from one on Maximized Living’s recipe .
- 3 cups (16 oz. bag) berries – I love Trader Joe’s Fancy Berry Medley
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup water
- stevia to taste
Blend in a high-speed blender and freeze!
