Raw Tacos



It's Raw-some Wednesday!  I am feeling so good from this cleanse (despite having a yucky cold).  I'm not sure I want to stop eating raw but at some point meat will tempt me.  I was worried when I started that there would be nothing to eat and I would be hungry all the time.  So not true!  I have been eating really good and enjoying it!
So today I want to share some raw tacos.  If you're feeling adventurous you should try them.  These are versatile and you can add tons of stuff to them to suit your tastes.  I made them with nut "meat," fajita veggies, corn, guacamole and tomatoes.  They were delicious and filling!  I will not try to tell you that the nut meat tastes like real meat- it does not.  But it does taste really good and supplies the substance needed to make these filling.

So come out from your safe place. Outside your comfort zone (or cardboard house) and try some raw food!!
