High Raw Food ~ Star-fruit Chickpea Capsicum Salad

My blog has been experiencing server issues the past three days. It has just been resolved and the post meant for Monday goes up today.

Our backyard starfruit tree is yielding a lot of fruit this season. I prepared a yellow and green colored salad using starfruit, yellow capsicum and boiled chickpeas loaded with honey roasted assorted nuts for Monday’s high raw food mid day meal. Crunchy and delicious!

Star fruit Broccoli Salad

Bring together 1 sliced star fruit, 1 peeled and chopped cucumber, fistful of boiled chickpeas, 1/2 cup broccoli florets (boil for 1-2 mts), 1 yellow capsicum, thin slices, 1 sliced guava, fistful of raisins, 1/2 tbsp honey, salt and pepper to taste, few roasted assorted nuts. Toss well. Add any fruit of your choice.

    I came across your site sometime in June 2008 and have been impressed ( and inspired ) immensely by your blog. I particularly like the way you creatively and beautifully photograph your creations. After seeing your ” Monday raw food diet ” I was reminded of one Dr. Raju’s ( from your town Vizag) who recommends a similar diet ( not just for Mondays but for all days ). Keep up the lovely work and do post more info ( and photographs ) on your vegetable garden.
    Wishing you a very happy new year.
