Hi everyone. I am so excited that today’s lunchbox is from a reader, soon to be blogger again, named Faye. She is setting up a new blog this month, but in the meantime offered to guest blog here. Faye is from Canada and is also a lawyer so we instantly bonded over that and our lunchboxes. Her lunchbox looks pretty awesome. I need to look into that pie. In the meantime, here is Faye:
I’m thrilled to be a guest blogger here at City|Life|Eats.
I’m also a lawyer trying to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, and that requires that I get up a little early every day to prepare nutritious lunches. After years of chronic illness and experimenting with different diets – I’ve found that the diet that nourishes my body best is one that is gluten-free, high raw, mostly vegan, which excludes most processed foods (I do sometimes have difficulty resisting Vegenaise!).
- Veggies and hummus
- Juice pulp crackers with hummus
- A slice of Caramel Apple Pie
- Juice: carrots, celery and spinach
I love quick-and-easy recipes and for this reason, I adore the simplicity of the Juice Pulp Crackers. As I’m already making juice, I save 5 cups of the pulp in order to double the recipe linked to above and I have crackers for a week. I also love the fact that this recipe only requires 4-5 hours of dehydrating. It meets my needs perfectly and the crackers are really tasty.
This was the first time I made the Caramel Apple Pie, and it was well worth the extra time Saturday afternoon. It’s delicious – even my non-raw, non-vegan neighbour said he was surprised that he enjoyed it so much. I cut it up into slices and popped them into the freezer. Every day this week, I’ll be pulling out a piece of pie for my lunch. It’s such a treat.
