Sorry for the blurry image, it was taken with my cell phone as I couldn't find my camera.
Ingredients: mixed greens (baby spinach, baby romaine, arugula, raddichio, etc.), Quinoa salad http://www.canadianliving.com/food/quinoa_and_chickpea_salad_with_tomato_vinaigrette.php (in which I omitted the green beans as I didn't have any) with grape tomatoes and fresh basil leaves to garnish.
Ingredients: mixed salad greens, strawberries, blueberries, sliced almonds, golden flax seeds, dried cranberries topped with creamy dressing made with 2 oranges, 1/2 cup cashews blended in Vitamix.

With the warmer temperatures also comes fresh fruit. While I prefer to buy locally grown fruits and vegetables whenever possible, I couldn't resist buying up some USA grown berries the other day so that I could make this fabulous recipe I found online (and the one I added above).

Oh, these are so fine we need more pictures!!!
Yes, these were amazing. I have to give a HUGE shout out to Tess Masters at http://healthyblenderrecipes.com/ for this fabulous recipe. Not only did she nail it with this fantastic recipe, she has a WHOLE site full of amazing vegan and raw food recipes to try. For the above recipe please visit her site here http://healthyblenderrecipes.com/recipes/raw_vegan_berry_breakfast_bombs/ . I followed the recipe precisely and it was perfect. My kids would have liked the cashew cream to be sweeter as I only used the 1 tbsp. agave syrup recommended by the author, but my adult tastes said it was perfect. I could easily eat this every morning for breakfast. One lucky client had this for lunch this week and everyone will get to try it next week.
I'm sorry that's all I have right now, but I promise not to be a stranger and will come back next week with a new blog post.
