January First Shopping Expedition DAY ONE by drpr .....

My first shopping event for raw food groceries

Date:   1/5/2006 7:10:29 PM ( 17 y ago)

Today I bought the foods I planned to eat on my first week going raw. I spent $48, but $8.50 of that was a splurge for extra virgin olive oil “first cold press”. I am not going to be too strict about the raw thing at first, but I’ll be mostly raw this week (except for today because I had my annual good-luck blackeyed peas and cornbread for the new year!):

-alfalfa sprouts

-5 small avocados

-1 small head of cabbage

- 1 bunch of cilantro

-2 medium sizedcucumbers

- 1 bunch parsley

- 1 jicama

-4 limes

-extra virgin, first cold pressed olive oil

- 1 bag pine nuts (probably not raw, but I didn’t know what to look for)

- 1 red bell pepper

- 2 red onions

- Bob’s Red Mill bulgar

-1 head cauliflower

-a slew of tomatoes

-8 oranges

-a bag of apples

-a small watermelon

- a “young” coconut

-1 pomegranate

-sun-dried tomatoes

-garlic

I made tabouleh with bulgar, parsley, tomatoes, cucumber, garlic a bit of red onion (forgot to buy scallions) and a little lime juice. I will eat this with hummus I already have. I’ll also make salsa. I’ve used both of these as salad dressings in the past, and since I’ll be eating a lot of salads (I already have a Costco container of organic mesclun), both the salsa and taboule will be put to good use this week. I plan to make fresh squeezed orange juice- not much, but enough for a bit of juice each morning.
