Raw Pad Thai

It’s hard to listen to your body when you are busy, exhausted or stressed. You are simply on survival mode, trying to get through the day. We all have moments like this and when this happens it’s hard to know what your body is actually craving. You end up with quick fixes that give you temporary pleasures like chocolate or sweets. All these foods do is give you a sugar rush.

Instead you want to get calm enough to notice that your body is crying out for nutrients instead. I love cooked food. The whole idea of eating raw never really appealed to me, unless it was fruit.

Lately my body has been craving raw meals and I’m quite surprised by how filling it actually is. I find myself eating lots of greens and smoothies throughout the day. I wanted to share some of these raw recipes, in case you ever feel like taking a break from all the cooked foods too.

So, l made some raw Pad Thai. Pad Thai is such a great meal to have raw due to the combination of flavors and its so eay to make raw. In this version we are going to add a lot of mung beans so as to get it to be crunchy and add texture to the food. Here is the recipe, let me know how you like it when you make it.
