Creamy Noodle Sushi, New Friends, and New Treats

Hello from my third week in Arizona (oh yes, and Happy St. Patty’s Day. Go eat something green)! Today I was lucky enough to have my feet firmly planted on the ground (airplane-free!) and to connect with a new friend from the detox community!

Meet Renae. Renae and I met over green juice (of course) and had an absolute blast comparing notes on our home colonic units, exchanging stories about being the oddballs in our relationships, discovered we had each been to the same kooky colon hydrotherapist at different points, sharing post-Rose Cleanse thoughts, and were delighted to find we were both going to Natalia Rose’s Advanced Training Course in NYC this Summer! Another highlight was comparing our purse stashes: stevia galore as well as other goodies!

The Combined Stevia Stash

The best news of all: my lady came to visit me this weekend 🙂 I haven’t been able to make it home yet and having her here is absolutely wonderful. She got in around dinner time and I made her a kale/drunken goat cheese/avocado salad (in a bag!) that she nommed on with some Terra Chips. She managed to chew and sing a cute little ditty about “a-salad-in-a-bag-and-my-lovie-for-the-win”. She’s pretty much the cutest ever.

For myself I made a very un-Britney-friendly meal that included seaweed and tahini (two of her not-so-favorites). It was one of the best meals I’ve had since I’ve been here. I called it “Creamy Noodle Sushi” but “Seaweed wrapped in Seaweed with Sauce” would have worked too.

Ingredients:

1 package kelp noodles, soaked for an hour
1/2 cup tahini
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
juice of one lemon
water to thin
nori sheets

Drain the kelp noodles. Mix together sauce: tahini, garlic, dijon, lemon, and water, thinning to desired consistency. Pour sauce over noodles and wrap in nori sheets. Worth every messy bite.

Dessert was two fun new treats: a small chocolate tart from Hail Merry and a Yogi’s Caramel Bedtime Tea. The tart was yummy but didn’t live up to the hype I’d been hearing. Before we dug in Britney said “I bet this is gonna taste like coconut”. To her, all raw desserts taste like coconut because of the heavy use of coconut oil. She was right but we still ate every bit 🙂

  1. Awwwwww girl you look SO happy 🙂

    And I am totally making that sauce for my kelp noodles, too 🙂

    Seriously I love your smile ❤ SO pretty, hun xoxoxoxo

    I have seen that toffee flavoured Stevia before, but never bought! I also saw chocolate raspberry and stuff like that, too! What did you think of that flavour!?

      You leave the loveliest comments!

      I like the flavored stevia alright, the english toffee and vanilla creme are the best. Not my absolute favorite though, after trying the NuNaturals brand it’s hard to go back!

  2. Thats so funny I always think that too!!! All prepackaged raw desserts do taste like coconut and I am not crazy about coconut (except the young kind) so I always make my own desserts! BTW have been into colonics/detox lifestyle in NYC and attended Natalia’s class a few years ago. It was great to find this blog. Keep up the good work with it. There’s not enough info about this lifestyle out there! Best, Jamie

      Thanks Jamie, I’m SO excited for the class this Summer and I love meeting other people who have been as well!

  3. Pretty much every non-raw person I share desserts with comment on the coconut flavor… funny, I don’t notice it at all! I think my taste buds have just come to accept it as a background flavor to YUM and I’m not even conscious of it anymore!

    Glad to see your smile : ) I was wondering how you were getting along for such a long time away from home and without your Britney. What a difference love makes!

    • Rande McDaniel

      I didn’t taste it at all until Britney started mentioning it and now I always do- It’s a good thing I love coconut!

      and yes…love makes all the difference in the world 🙂
