I certified as a raw chef last week with Flora Papadopoulou (through Alissa Cohen) and learned how to make everything under the sun in the raw foods category. I made this sandwich for Nikos to take to work with him. If you don't have a dehydrator you can buy raw crackers at the store, or you can simply use cabbage/iceberg lettuce and wrap as a cup. Much less expensive than purchasing raw crackers.
Raw Avocado Sprout Sandwich
2 raw crackers/raw bread slices (onion flavor works perfect)
1/2 small tomato
handful of sprouts
garlic cashew spread (1/2 small clove garlic, 1/4 cup cashews and 1-2 tsp olive oil, 1-2 tsp water, dash of sea salt, dash of cayenne pepper, blended together)
1. Assemble on lettuce or crackers and enjoy!
The important thing to remember is that when you go out of your way to consume a raw meal you are giving your body the gift of 100% living foods. This means you receive all the digestive enzymes and DNA that live in the foods you are eating. When we cook food- we "kill" it and our body recognized these foods as toxins and sends a message to the body that an invasion is occurring. The body responds by sending mucus to protect the body which stays in our body, mainly in our intestines as plaque, leading to various diseases- physical, spiritual and mental.
The best gift you can give your body is to incorporate more raw foods into your diet :)
