11 week initiative, day 3. Raw Marinara Sauce, A cute kid and dog!

Today I dropped Mackenzie off at school and headed to the gym for a much needed workout. I did a couple miles on the treadmill and did a spin class, which I have not done in a while. I like the fast tempo of it.This morning after the gym I had a green juice and packed a bowl of mixed fruit,a Lara bar and a Kombucha for lunch. When I got home I did some crafts with Mackenzie. We made play food for her American Girl doll. If any of you have girls, then I am sure you are well aware of American Girl dolls. She loves her "Bitty Baby" and her doll and has fun being "mommy" to them.

For dinner I a had a spiralized zucchini with raw marinara sauce that I made yesterday, mushrooms, tofu, and a sweet potato. A while later I had some popcorn sprinkled with cinnamon and stevia. Here is my recipe for raw marinara sauce. 

Raw Marinara Sauce

8 or 9 sundried tomatoes, soaked until soft
8 or 9 cherry tomatoes
handful of fresh basil
1/4 red bell pepper
1/2 carrot
dash of salt
1 teaspoon minced garlic

Blend it together and enjoy! 

Yesterday I had a dollop on the raw Rosemary Basil Crackers I made. 

Perfectly easy, healthy and delicious! 

Just for fun... a picture of Mackenzie and Blaze.


  1. Mackenzie is so cute. Having a little girl myself, I guess I'll be getting her an American Girl doll in the future, too. I love how you made play food for her. Crafting is so fun, especially with the kids.

  2. Thanks Shannon! Your kids are adorable as well!

  3. Ooooh looks great! I love raw marinara sauce! So easy and way better than anything cooked!
