Easy Raw Veggie Wraps...

I love Spring! It is a beautiful, calm and sunshining day here in New Mexico...amazing! This is my favorite time of year, that is when it is not blowing gale force wind. Today has me feeling fresh, inspired and happy! Lunch time is upon us and I just whipped up the most beautiful, nourshing and tasty lunch. I feel inspired to share my RAW Veggie Wrap recipe. Today, I had not planned ahead and did not have soaked almonds* ready. I compiled all the vegetables, sliced an avocado and sprinkled with a little sea salt/ sea veg.

Try it out. I would love to hear what you think!! 

*Soaked nuts are activated nuts! Soaking nuts is essential for deactivating the nutrients to make nuts minerals more digestible. By activating the life force energy within and prepares it to germinate. Soaked and sprouted nuts contain more vitamins and minerals than un-soaked nuts. A friend of mine, who normally can not eat raw nuts without getting mouth sores, has no issues eating activated nuts. 

Happy Weekend!

Raw Veggie Wraps - Gluten Free, Vegan 
Ingredients:
2/3 cups almonds (soaked overnight in 2 cups water)
1 1/2 tablespoons flaxseed oil
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon unrefined sea salt (divided)
2 ripe avocados (peeled and pitted)
3 carrots (cut into thin strips)
2 red bell peppers (cut into thin strips)
4 ounces pea shoots or daikon radish sprouts (or both)
4 ounces bean sprouts
8 large very fresh Swiss chard leaves (cut in half lengthwise and center rib removed)

Sometimes I make these without the almonds. Simply cut up the veggies... and roll. Easy, simple... delicious!
Directions:
Drain almonds thoroughly and place in a food processor, along with flax oil, basil, 2 teaspoons lime juice, and ¼ teaspoon unrefined sea salt. Process until well chopped and nearly smooth. Scrape into a small bowl, cover, and set aside.
Mash avocado with a pinch of sea salt into a smooth purée.
Spread a small amount of avocado mixture on the underside of the swiss chard leaf, and a spoonful of the almond mixture. Add a mixture of all the veggie's and roll up!
