Raw food hmm delicious

So i have a bit of a raw food obsession at the moment and i find myself checking raw food websites and trawling through these to find new, yummy and exciting recipes. I think this has been prompted by how incredible i have been feeling eating predominately raw food for the last few months. Who would have thought that you could feel so totally amazing,vibrant,happy and zinging with health and energy from eating green smoothies and the like. Ok it's not that extraordinary if you think about it seeing as these foods are living natural foods with all their enzymes still intact but the great thing is that it's not boring and restrictive it actually feels quite the opposite and the more i do it the more i love this way of eating because of the way it makes me feel AND i find myself craving greens, a great result i think.

Anyway here are a couple of recipes that i have tried out recently and love:
