Some raw recipes

I have been giving out my own version of the Liquid Gold Elixir recipe to a bunch of people through email, so I think I should just post it. The original recipe is by Natalia Rose.

Maggie’s Take on Liquid Gold Elixir

Ingredients

  • 3 large cloves of garlic, grated (probably less for normal people)
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3-4 tablespoons bragg’s liquid aminos
  • 3-4 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons powdered stevia (I use the kind from Trader Joe’s but I want to get NuNaturals when I run out)

Directions

Blend everything in a food processor. It really does come out gold, and tastes like the elixir of life. It’s fabulous.

Another raw recipe that I tried (finally) is Gena’s Banana Soft Serve. It was so awesome!

I took 2.5 bananas and blended them in my mini food processor for 2-3 minutes. I probably could have gone on for longer but it was 11pm and Bobby said I was probably waking the neighbors. I topped it with cinnamon.

Reading:

If you haven’t seen it, Clare did a very cool post about Vinyasa (and I helped with the etymology = word origins).

Jordan also had a sweet post about some of the inspiration she’s found from other bloggers.

And I wrote about the English alphabet (it hasn’t always looked like it does today!).

A sweet reader sent me this recipe site and I’ve been ogling over the healthy recipes. I might try some out!

Fun stuff & exercise:

Bobby and I did Yogadownload.com‘s Sun Salutations Flow #2 (Dave Farmar instructing; ~25 minutes). We are going to do yoga together today, too. Before yoga I did 15 minutes of rebounding and then I did 15 more afterwards.

And my anthropology class – it seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun. I might sign up for Cultural Anthropology too; it’s a video class and I can watch it at home. Cultural Anthropology is cool because it gets into linguistics.

Stay tuned for some resolutions tomorrow icon smile Some raw recipes September and Fall make me feel refreshed, happy, and motivated! I also love September because it’s my birthday month – I’ll be 23 in less than 2 weeks. Scary.

    I tried Natalia Rose’s recipe for the dressing and didn’t like much, maybe I added too much ginger. This sounds delish, I’ll definitely try it!

    yoga with Bobby? thats fun! I wish Star do yoga with me too! :)

    I didn’t realize you were younger than me! You seem so mature and to have your stuff together, I always thought you were a little older! I’ll be 25 in Oct. SCARY too!!! mmm that soft serve looks delicious! I’ll have to give that a try w/ all the extra bananas we always have!

    Thanks for sharing that recipe, Maggie! Sounds awesome :)

    Yay for September birthdays! I think early 20s are a time when you start getting scared of getting older (turning 22 soon). So I totally get where you are right now!

    Twenty-three! You are a young spring chicken:) I am almost 40!! How’s that for feeling old?

    That is so cool that Bobby did yoga with you! And your dressing recipe looks more do-able than Natalie’s which called for something like 2 cups of lemon juice!

    Can’t wait to see your resolutions. Other people’s resolutions always motivate me:)

    I need to make the banana ice cream! The food processor is in a very high up cabinet and my shoulder hurt when I tried to take it down and Rob is tall but lazy and we don’t even know if it still works, but as soon as I get it down I am making it. With carob chips. Mmmm.

    I juiced mint and it made my juice so delicious! Thank you for the idea!

    Thanks for the recipes!!

    I’ve always made my resolutions/goals in September too. Probably because it’s also my birthday month. Hehe.

    Haha, I’ve made that banana thing before. It’s great. I’ve added peanut butter and it rocks even harder.

    1.) NuNaturals’ NuStevia is my favorite stevia.

    2.) I almost declared an Anthropology minor in college – the only thing that held me back was that it would’ve meant me staying an extra year or two. Sociocultural and Biological Anthro were incredible courses.

    The more I read your blog, the more I love it and relate to it!
