Day 5 Unprocessed

Today started with quinoa & raisins for breakfast.
I really love having quinoa for breakfast. I just think it goes so well with milk :-)
Quinoa is so easy to cook. Its just like cooking rice or pasta. `1 cup quinoa to 3 cups of water in a pot, bring to boil, simmer 10-15 minutes. You'll be able to tell when it's 'done' because the seeds pop open and become translucent with a little white ring around them. It keeps well in the fridge and freezes well too which means you can make a big batch & then use it when needed.

Lunch was soup! Best thing to have on cold, rainy days.... Well I just love soup on any day really!

This soup is really simple yet really tasty.
1/2 cup red lentils, 2 carrots, one small onion, 1 cup stock, 2 cups water. Bring to boil, simmer. Use a stick blender til desired consistency of soup is reached.

Baked dinner of tofu, herbed potatoes, green beans and a corn cob.

Check out the recipe for my Pop-eye Ice-cream.
