simple + clean + raw soup

cold avo-cu soup

so, i'm eating raw again for 1 week.  i started on monday.  i will make 2 meal exceptions, tonight we got invited to this and on saturday i plan on indulging here.  i'm trying to be a bit more creative than i have in the past when eating raw.  last night i made this raw avocado + cucumber soup made with homemade almond milk (which is surprisingly SO easy to make) that turned out to be so good!

i n g r e d i e n t s 

1/2 cup of almonds soaked in water overnight
1 large cucumber peeled + chopped 
3 avocados chopped
5 stems of green onion chopped
handful of cilantro chopped
salt + pepper to taste

throw your soaked almonds in a food processor / blender and slowly add 2 cups filtered water as you are blending.  blend until smooth as possible.  strain your mixture into a bowl, this process will require you to press down on the almond mash left to really get all the liquid milk out.  
you will only be using the milk - so you can do whatever you like with the leftover almond mash, save it for baking?

put your chopped avocados, cucumbers, green onions and cilantro in the food processor or blender and add the almond milk and blend.  add salt and pepper as you are blending to taste.

so simple + clean + good

since i am raw i didn't add much else, but i feel like there's plenty of opportunity to add more fun stuff to this, like perhaps a spoon full of labne or greek yogurt?  garlic and mint be a nice touch as well.

matt shepard is a friend of mine

hi friends.  i'm excited to share this film teaser for a documentary that my sister, zeina, has taken part in regarding matt's life, who he was, and his story.  the film is being created by michele josue, who also went to school with matt + zeina, and her husband liam mcniff.

they have started a kickstarter account to try to generate more funds for their efforts.  i know money is tight these days, and there are SO many things out there to give to, but perhaps you might find yourself in a position to donate a little something to this documentary so we can get this story out.  it's an important story to tell, and one that is near and dear to my heart.

please take a moment to watch this video, which includes the film teaser, and then visit this kickstarter page to learn more.

thank you,
♥ sb

le weekend...

everyone was so eager to celebrate this weather
so we spent the entire saturday in the park

clay and orson  

walked home from the park to find a handwritten note + polaroid in my mailbox from corine

it's hard to get out of bed on weekend mornings when 
olive is in mega snuggle mode 

so i lounged in bed and read a bunch...

this book is making me miss watching madmen - which is apparently not airing season 5 until 2012
