Eating raw, vegan and healthy aboard is a challenge in a number of ways, but the one thing that actually makes it easier is we do not have an oven.
|Healthy green smoothie for breakfast|
We have an electric hob, but to operate that we need to run a generator. So we gravitate to raw meals.
We have also managed to find a number of health shops wherever we are, that stock most of the ingredients we need, and there is nearly always a fresh food market in the town.
And as I mentioned in the previous post, the one electrical gadget we do have is a stick blender.
So, here is one of our favourite healthy breakfast smoothies:
2 kiwi fruit
2 or 3 dates, pitted
heaped spoon of barley or wheat grass powder
heaped spoon of a green super blend
Coarsely chop the fruit.
Add the powders.
Add sufficient water to bring it to about a litre.
Whizz with a stick blender or power blender.
Of course you can use any fruit you like - for this green smoothie, we sometimes use green melon.
We do always try to use organic fruit if possible.
