How to experience a mini detox once a week. How about this Mock Rice recipe?
We all tend to opt for warm cooked foods these days unless it’s summer when the cooler options are far more appealing. But if you think back to hundreds of years ago, we used to eat food raw. Animals eat raw food to get their daily nutrients, so what made us go down the cooked route?
By cooking our food, we lose around 50% of the nutrients through heating and processing. Even if you steam your vegetables, you are still losing vital vitamins and minerals although it is a better choice than boiling the life out of your ingredients.
To achieve a ‘mini detox’ once a week, I would recommend that you factor into your menu a raw food day. Everything will be uncooked where you will be able to actually taste the food you are eating. In time, your sugar and salt cravings will reduce, but it does take time. You will also be giving your body all of the fab nourishment that it needs to operate to keep you functioning for the busy life you may lead.
Eating raw food doesn’t need to be boring. I will be posting up various recipes in the coming days that you are able to save and try yourself. The great thing is that they take 5 minutes to whip up too!
Mock Rice (photo above)
1/2 cup cauliflower
1/2 cup broccoli
1/4 cup raw almonds (soaked for 6 to 8 hours)
1/2 cup tomato
1 tbsp red onion
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup celery
1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper powder (reduce if you prefer less spicy food)
1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
1/2 tsp curry powder
1 – 2 cloves of garlic (depending on how strong you like the flavour)
1/2 tsp paprika
Put the entire list of ingredients into a food processor and blitz for a minute or two. Remove from the blender and press into a ramekin or similar dish. Turn the container upside down onto a plate and serve with cucumber and walnuts.
