I’m eating lots of yums at my parents’. My mom made this wonderful amazing stir-fry tonight for dinner.
I don’t know the recipe, but I know it had lots of peanut butter. It was delicious. Maybe I’ll ask her how she made it sometime soon. It had all of my favorite veggies – broccoli, mushrooms, carrots (which I actually avoided because I’m trying not to turn orange), and red peppers. She’s not scared to use enough oil to make it taste good either.
This morning (and yesterday I think) for breakfast I made a really good bowl of hot cereal. I mix together…
- ~1/2 cup of quick cooking oats
- a few tablespoons of farina
- cook it in water & almond milk
- cinnamon, almond or orange extract (or both!), dash of salt

This is the other recipe that Jill and I got to try at the raw foods demo at Whole Foods. It was served with raw flax crackers (yum). You just need a good blender to make it (which I don’t have, but I will try with my food processor). The recipe is raw, vegan, and vegetarian.
Raw Zucchini Hummus
- 2 zucchini
- 3/4 cup tahini (raw)
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup olive oil (cold pressed, if you want it to be truly raw)
- 4 cloves garlic
- 2.5 teaspoons salt (I would cut down on this)
- 1/2 tablespoon cumin
Chop the zucchini and blend everything in the blender. Add the lemon juice and garlic (and salt) a little bit at a time to get the flavor that you want.

I made these on Saturday night, right before Bobby and I went out to dinner with the cousins. They are perfect for breakfast, dessert, or even a snack. They’re fairly healthy, but they are really flavorful and delicious. I had them for breakfast 2 days in a row. You could veganize them by using an egg substitute.
I say this about a lot of things, but you *must* make these. You will not be disappointed!
