'Posh' Dinner for one
Heavenly Raw Starters or Light Lunch Option
It happens that sometimes you don't feel like cooking especially if you are on your own and not really in tunes about what should enter the body, and healthy options are too far a few to make good choices.
I am here to show you today that healthy food can be prepared in no time at all, looking exquisite, tasting great (if not amazing!), and with minimum effort. You will be so proud, that, for once, you will agree that feeling posh is not only about what green is found in a wallet but also in a plate, and that a glass of wine will have the perfect fit on the table, on a tray or right at hand...
This recipe requires absolutely no cooking and minimum equipment, although a spirulizer may come very handy. Don't despair if you do not have one yet - although, I would recommend you to get one soon! (They are now cheaper than ever, less than a G&T at the pub down the road) - you can use your fine grater or a julienne-peeler.
If you are Vegan, Vegetarian, Raw, Paleo, or Macrobiotics, it is all-fine for you to enjoy. Make sure that all ingredients are mostly Organic to reap the best of benefit of eating a raw meal full of nutrients and Antioxidants.
