Raw Food Dinner, Day 1: Sashimi
On the left, Salmon with a “Tropical Salsa”. On the right, Tuna in Earth and Vine Chili Ponzu sauce.
For the salsa, just chop up:
- red onion
- red pepper
Add a dash of lime juice, and viola! It’s amazing. Trust.
Some “raw food purists” say that one should not eat raw meats (ie: carpaccio) or raw fish. They say the meats contain toxins and the goal of a raw food diet is to not add more toxins so your body can process out the old residual ones. I don’t think I’d feel comfortable with raw beef, but I feel okay with the fish and I purchased organic sashimi grade to err on the side of safety and healthfulness.
I’ve had lots of orange juice, carrots, and raw cashews today and though I am taking a multivitamin, I am also working out and so I don’t want to give my body less than it needs to thrive. Plus, this is YUMMY and yummy means I’ll keep it up longer.
I’ve had high energy and been in good spirits so far… day one: done!
