Raw Fu Challenge Update - First 10 Days

>> Tuesday, August 12, 2008

The first 10 days of the 100 day Raw Fu challenge has been a success for me. I managed to lose five whole pounds. Yippee! And I was relatively all raw except I did have a couple spoonfuls of organic peanut butter and if you have read Yardsnacker's recent post he rats on me, er, I mean he merely mentions that I had some cooked food brought down by a neighbor (he included a pic of my leftovers). If you haven't read it, go ahead and then come back here and read the rest of my post. Hurry.

Okay, so our neighbor knows we eat "healthy" but doesn't know the full extent of it so when he offered us this meal he wasn't sure if Sam would eat it because it had some fish cake in it (I wasn't sure I'd eat it either - fish cake sounds wrong). He and his family are so nice and generous that I had to accept the meal (they're always giving Sam stuff, I'm a lucky recipient by default - guess they like him better then me. boo hoo!). It was a rice cake dish (they're noodle shaped, kinda spongey-like and are very sticky on the teeth) with a spicy sauce and some fish cake, which to me was like fish-flavored tofu, and of course the green onions we gave him. Cool!

I'm not familiar with Korean food but thought this was pretty good. Very different. I wasn't sure what I expected it to taste like but it was surprisingly tasty. Not something I would have often though. I didn't really dig the fish cake but the rice cake thingeys were kinda fun. And it could've been spicier! I guess they toned it down a bit knowing they were going to give us some and didn't want to have to call an ambulance.

Maybe it wasn't necessary to share all that but doesn't your life feel enriched now that you know something about Korean rice cakes? hee hee!

If you caught Sam's theory in his post you'll understand why I ate it. So while I wasn't all raw all the time I don't feel an ounce of guilt over eating something that was given to us in thanks.

I'm not even going to discuss my exercise challenge. That sentence alone should tell ya.

Last night I made the sunflower seed cheese Bunny Berry featured in one of her videos.

Here's the recipe from the video:

Sunflower Seed Cheese
1 cup sunflower seeds
3 cloves garlic
Juice of half a lemon
Salt to taste

My notes: I used a whole lemon but it was small and a pinch of celery salt. Also, I soaked the seeds for an hour but I'm sure you're supposed to soak longer. I'm too lazy to look that up. It might also make a difference to let this chill for awhile (mine was overnight) before eating. It was good as I was making this but was way better the next day. JMO.

Mmm mmm good! I had this for my lunch today with some zucchini crackers and it was so good. I also had it on romaine leaves. No matter how you consume this it's going to be good...unless it was on ice cream then maybe not so much. :D
