Eating Raw and Collard Wraps

I'm eating raw foods this week. I'm going to try my hardest to eat only raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds for a whole week. Going completely raw is something I've been curious about for awhile. I do eat lots of raw vegetables and fruits on a daily basis already, but I wanted to try being exclusively raw for a week. I figured it's a good time to do it since the temps are heading into the 90's over the next few days, and frankly, I don't feel like cooking in a hot little kitchen. Maybe I'll see some results and feel incredible. Maybe I'll just give my body a nice healthy dose of fresh produce and not feel any different. What I do know is that this isn't a permanent thing. I'm just expanding on my culinary adventures and doing some good for my body this week. A raw food cleanse never hurt anyone. We'll see how it goes! I'll try to post a few of the recipes I'll be making...they're pretty exciting and hopefully tasty.

Oh, and the collard wrap was part of my lunch this afternoon. Basically, I took a large collard leaf, stuffed it with some avocado, herbs, veggies and sprouts, and rolled it up like a burrito. For a super awesome tutorial on how to do it, check out this post. Enjoy! (and wish me luck this week...)
