Hope everyone is doing well. The weather here in Northern California has been gorgeous!
School is almost wrapping up for Mackenzie and I am trying to plan out the summer. I have planned a trip to Disneyland in the beginning of July... we can't wait! I also want to attend the Health and Harmony festival in Santa Rosa, California and the Raw Food Expo in Santa Rosa. Are any of you planning on attending these? Do you have any summer plans yet?
I had posting about making my own kombucha. I love kombucha but it gets expensive at 3.00 a bottle, so I am glad mine has been coming out good. The batch just keeps getting bigger and bigger. The scoby (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast) doubles every time you make a batch. I went from one batch...
I have been flavoring some with different fruit juices. Yum!
Onto dessert! I made Heather of Sweetly Raw's Mango Tart. The only things I changed were to use apricots instead of raspberries, added raw oats to the crust (I posted about the raw oats here) and I omitted the cocao butter because I didn't have it.
The mango mix
Layer of apricot slices
The finished product. Mine did not set as well due to not adding the cocao butter but it still tasted great... as any of Heather's recipes will.
The past couple days eats have been mostly smoothie for breakfast or whole grain waffles with coconut butter and fruit.
I have also been enjoying salad with roasted sweet potatoes, beets, onions, and raw corn all tossed in Kristen Suzzane's Cheesy Hemp Sauce. This sauce is good on everything.... use it as a dip or dressing. Yum!
Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend!
