Raw Preparation

I am going to prepare for my challenge tomorrow. I am going to get some crackers and almond nut butter made, nut milk, mock tuna, chicken and eggless salad, and lots more, I hope!

This morning it started off with rain and dullness but now the sun is trying to shine through although the sky is still a tad grey.

I have added a few pages, links on the right. These pages will be completed over the next couple of days.

Here is a pic of my homemade Almond nut butter.
I used 2 cups of Almonds, NO oil added AT ALL!! I then blitzed them up in the Vitamix. They do heat up so I had to keep stopping to allow the nuts to cool although I do think I allowed it to heat up a tad too much, but either way it is still better than the nut butter I have been buying and using because I had been using the roasted nut butter.
I will allow the nuts to cool longer the next time I make nut butter.
I tasted the nut butter and the difference compared to roasted butter, the roasted tastes like roasted but my nut butter tastes like almonds. GIVE IT A GO! You don't need to add oils.

Back tomorrow for the 1st day of my challenge......I'm rather excited about this.....woohoo

A New Blog

Yep a new blog! This had to be done because I couldn't do anything with the layout with my other blog, so here it is, a new blog and a new start!

As you can see by the pic at the side, I am starting my NEW 66 day 'Raw Spring Challenge' which starts on 1st April 2011 and the final day of this challenge will be 5th June 2011.

I will be posting about my day, raw food and posting pics of my raw meals etc and I will also post about my daily rota's i.e. housework, exercise and beauty, I may even bring the occasional short video to you.

Just a little note as to why I have called my blog Raw Bluebell, firstly I am not a Bluebell dancer...teehee I just simply LOVE raw foods and beautiful colours and nature and I just LOVE Bluebells, these are my favourite flowers, they look beautiful and the colour of them is just the BEST!!

I will be back tomorrow.
