A Simple Evening Meal (Part 1)

A Simple Evening Meal (Part 1)

Whoever said that food on The Hallelujah Diet is complicated or takes a lot of time doesn't do it Rev. Malkmus' way! Here's a simple idea for an evening meal that most likely takes less time than you spend on supper now...
My evening meal usually begins with an 8 oz glass of either straight carrot juice or mixture of 50% carrot juice and 50% various other juices (celery, beet & beet top, cucumber, spinach, etc. – depending on what’s available) and made fresh. That is usually consumed between 5:00 and 5:30 p.m. Next comes my blended salad. In our Vitamix blender is tossed in all the ingredients that would go into a regular salad:
  • small tomato or ¼ larger tomato in season
  • 1” cut of cucumber, stalk of celery, small carrot cut in 1” sections
  • ¼ to ½ avocado depending on size
  • a big handful of spinach
  • 1 Tbsp of a favorite salad dressing
This is a huge amount of veggies that fills the Vitamix container before blending and is blended till pureed. If there is not enough liquid in the salad from the tomato and cucumber, sometimes a little distilled water needs to be added and then the plunger is used to push all the veggies down into the blender blades. I consume it like soup in a bowl with a spoon. I usually then have something cooked. This could be as simple as a baked white or sweet potato, some steamed veggies or a couple ears of corn on the cob. Over the next few weeks I will share other simple items that can be served for the 15% cooked portion of the evening meal. Rhonda prefers her salad to be whole, rather than processed through a blender. We prepare our evening meal together. My blended salad takes me about 5 minutes to prepare while Rhonda takes at least 15-20 minutes for her to cut up the various veggies. What I am trying to get across is that the evening meal does not need to take hours of preparation, but can be prepared in a very short period of time – be healthy – and tasty.
