Gazpacho is a cold Spanish tomato-based raw vegetable soup, originating in the southern region of Andalusia. It’s is widely consumed throughout Spain, neighboring Portugal (where it is known as gaspacho) and parts of Latin America. While this soup is typically eaten in the summer, it fit well into my raw food project, so I am going to post it now. Top with an avocado to add even more raw food benefits :)
I did all my shopping this past Monday and made an extensive list of all the items to buy for various recipes I looked over before deciding to embark on this journey. My diet has consisted of 60$ raw foods and 40% cooked food. It was a raw food shopping spree at the store!
Fad diets – super foods, super juices, “all-natural” pills. We’ve all heard about them, seen the “amazing results”, dropped 50 pounds. But really, how many of these diets remain sustainable over a lifetime of eating? Over the holiday break I watched a documentary on the benefits of eating raw food. Of course I’ve always know that eating “the fruits of nature” is beneficial to my health, but what about all the other yummy things I like to eat….like cheese?
