RECIPE: simple, summery 801010 meals

I often post my eats on Instagram without ever actually posting the recipes here.This is mostly because the recipes are so simple that I don't think to do so, however, what I didn't think about is that not all of my readers are necessarily checking my Instagram account!

Another great reason I'd love to share the recipes here is because it shows you just how simple and easy this lifestyle can be. I feel very strongly about this and I mention is all the time but it's worth mentioning again.


Raw food should not be a chore. 

Of course there are endless recipes that require lots of technique and fancy tools (and lots of them on here, as well!) but those recipes are just for fun and not a daily thing. There's no way dehydrated foods and loads of nuts could sustain me throughout the weeks because of three reasons: 1) it's SO time consuming to prepare dehydrated foods 2) it is SO expensive compared to fresh raw food and 3) even if it's "raw" these kinds of foods simply are not healthy for you to have regularly.

So what I do on the daily is eat fresh, whole fruits and veggies. Here are some of my favorite, simple meals.


Mango Red Pepper Salad:
a recipe
1 mango, cubed
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 avocado, cubed
2 romaine heads

Take half the pepper and half the mango and pulse in a blender or food processor. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour the mixture over the top.

 Mango Monomeal
3-5 mangoes

Wait until you have extremely ripe mangoes and then scoop out the flesh and eat. Depending on your caloric needs and activity levels, you can consume as many as you need.


Papaya Salad:
a recipe
3-4 cups ripe papaya*
1/4 avocado
1/2 lemon
2-3 sprigs green onion
2 romaine heads
handful fresh cilantro, chopped

Scoop out the flesh of the papaya and add remaining ingredients to a large bowl. Squeeze the lemon over the top and eat.

*depending on your region, use the papaya available to you. I use Caribbean/Maradol papayas, which are enormous, and eat a half to a whole one in a salad. A smaller Hawaiian papaya may require 2-3 for a meal.
