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!
