Perfectly Raw, Perfect Guacamole

       I’ve been doing this raw thing for a couple of weeks (not completely raw; probably 90%). I feel great! I’ve also been practicing bikram fairly consistently; I try to go everyday, but it usually works out to five days a week. Anyway; on to the food!
       Making a conscious decision to eat living food has made me realize that some of my favourites are already raw! One of my favourites is guacamole along with uncooked cauliflower and broccoli. That being said, I had never made my own guacamole from scratch; I always relied on the pre-made stuff. Until today! I googled guacamole recipes and chose the first one that popped up (found at SimplyRecipes).
       It was completely different than the store bought stuff but in a good way. I’m sure there’s many variations scattered across the web, and I’ll eventually modify the ingredients to my own taste, but this was a delicious jumping off point! I reduced the amount of onion as I hate the taste and texture of them (but have come to accept the fact that they are integral to the flavour of many dishes) and used jalapeno peppers instead of serrano. It’s also better than store bought because it eliminates the plastic container it’s packaged in… and I hate plastic!
       My next post will be about my excursion to the 24th Annual Vegetarian Food Fair. It was mind-blowingly amazing!

    Looks delicious Candice. I make a very simple guacamole just using avocado, lime and ume (Japanese plum brine).

    Btw: your text size is very small and hard to read. I had to magnify two times. I am using

    I hope to see good things come from your blog; I love eating raw, especially low-fat pure raw; too many raw recipes require dehydrating, 1/2 pound of nuts, blech. Drags you down. And I also love saving money.

    Sadly, eating low-fat raw and saving money are usually opposing goals. I’m thinking of taking up GrowFood.com and may grow our own produce; those guys are geniuses, makes it look dead simple to grow your own high-yield produce.

    So please keep writing your raw frugal secrets! I personally eat many bananas and whatever fruit is in season from our local farmer’s market. I add organic spinach from BJ’s because it’s way fresher and only a bit more expensive than conventional.

    Frederic Patenaude has a few good frugal tips on his website. He’s good at sales so watch your wallet, but there’s enough free info on his website, plus a few of his e-books were cheap and useful (Instant Raw Sensations, 70 Salad Dressings).

    Good luck and God bless!
