It’s Wednesday! Marvellous 🙂 I’ve been super busy last few days, mainly eating fresh thai coconuts straight from the shell. Oh baby nothing compares to these. See Woo in Glasgow has got them back in stock and I’m just finishing off my third case (yes case) of these beautiful babies. You need to hack off the head and then you get loads of fresh coconut water (like LOADS) and then scoop out the yummy flesh – sounds ick doesn’t it? Trust me these will turn any dour Glasgow day in to a tropical sunset ok not in reality but in your head and that’s the only place it counts right?
The flesh is really soft and gooey – looks kinda like egg white but tastes nothing like it thankfully cos I don’t like eggs. It doesn’t taste as strong as coconut from older brown hairy ones, it’s much milder and makes absolutely yumbo puddings so that’s mostly what I’ve been eating the last few days.
This pudding is meat of 2 coconuts, 3/4 cup coconut water, 1 tbsp cacao powder, 1 tbsp sweetener of choice (i use xylitol and yacon), 1/2 avo – blendify and enjoy with chopped strawbs and cacao nibs. Mmmmmlicious
See Woo have also got the infamous Durian back in stock. Durian if you don’t know is a very big jaggy fruit from far far away that has a very distinct taste and aroma. Either you love it or you hate it and first time I tried it I bloody hated it. Oh my god disgusting it was like oniony custardy fruit, very bizarre. But I wanted to give it a second chance and I’m glad I did cos this one was lovely. Really nice. Kinda like gooey pineapple with a slight onion undertone which sounds rancid I know but it’s just…unique shall we say? I was really enjoying it until Rod started talking about it looking like monkey brains and smelling awful and attracting flies etc. etc. So word of advice, don’t eat it around your stupid husband or mine for that matter 🙂
What else? Oh yes my raw food classes in Glasgow have now come to an end until October. I had such a great time doing them and got some really amazing feedback from some of my students. One woman made me want to cry cos she was sooo lovely. This is definitely what it’s all about for me. People in Scotland are totally waking up to better health and I love it!
What else? Oh yes I realised I didn’t update y’all on sproutwatch! Oops. Sorry. But basically the almonds went all lovely and sproutified so I made a chocolate curry out of them – yes chocolate curry. Probably the best curry I’ve ever had, recipe is in Raw Magic by Kate Magic. The alfalfa went lovely and big and dark green and I had them in my nori wraps, very tasty. The sunflower and pumpkin seeds went a bit soggy and I ended up chucking them cos I hadn’t looked after them properly. Poor sunflower and pumpkin seeds. But then I made up for it by soaking and sprouting some, marinaded them in tamari overnight then dehydrated to make absolutely lush crunchy salty snacks. Nice
Tonight Matthew I’m going to be making Sauerkraut after watching this vid from Raw Food World TV Show:
Looks like a piece of piss and I have cabbage and carrots on standby. Might sexify it up with herbs and garlic. Fermenty
Anyway enough nonsense from me. Have a glorious everything!
