We went for a surf today. It wasn’t that good, but it was really pretty out. I needed to be down at the beach. It clears my mind. I’ve needed that lately, too. When we got back, I did some work and made this salad that my friend Roberta made up. She’s an awesome cook. It also happens to be her wedding anniversary today. I remember the day she and her husband JP got married up in the Canadian mountains. It was dusk and the sunset was about the same color as that pink wave on the napkin in the picture up there; soft and happy. It was a really eco friendly wedding. The food was raw and they even had a bike you had to pedal to keep the music playing. It was special.
If you’re into healthy eating, eating raw food (not like raw meats, but unprocessed vegan foods that haven’t been heated above 115º Fahrenheit …someone had to explain that to me once. Probably Roberta.) then you should definitely check out Roberta’s site Being Berta. There’s lots of goodies over there.
So here’s the recipe for this salad. It’s a good one, just like Roberta.
Note to self: don’t spill the dry quinoa. It’s a pain to clean up!
2 tablespoons raisins or goji berries
