Fun fact: "High consumption of vegetables and fruits is associated with reduced risk for cardiovascular disease."
Our family tries to incorporate raw food in our meals three to four times a week. Incorporating raw foods became a bit of a habit for our family when I was breastfeeding tiny. When going through his allergy testing it was easiest to bring in the raw foods first. This meal we created during that time has quickly become my personal favorite raw meal. Although this recipe is not fully raw, it is a happy balance between cooked items, and raw. The raw pieces gives this meal a nice crunch.
Rice - jasmine is what we typically use for this meal as it has the sweetness factor, but any rice will do. Canned coconut milk
Purple Cabbage Avocado
Optional Ingredients: 1-2 lbs Sushi Grade Tuna Hoison sauce
Recipe: Rainbow Bowl
1. Wash your rice a few times, until the water is not murky.
2. Cook your rice as instructed on the rice package, yet cut half of the water and substitute it for your canned coconut milk
3. While your rice is cooking cut up your vegetables
4. Once your rice is done, top with your veggies, any sauces, and enjoy!
*Personal preference - more veggies than rice*
