For dinner tonight I made 3 sprout salad. Incredibly easy to makes. You take three of your favourite sprouts (mine were mung, azuki and fenugreek) add tomato, sweet pepper and cucumber, lemon to taste and voila!

OH MY Gordon!!!! These are sooooo fab! I wanted to eat the whole tray but didn’t. And dehydrator update. I looked at the 4 tray at Carrot and the 9 tray. Originally was only going to buy the 4 tray. It’s really not big enough. So I didn’t get it. Instead will wait a few more weeks and buy the 9 tray. I may as well. It will be worth the money!

In the meantime. Here is the pic! I’m off to make tomorrows vitals. I am now up to 90% raw a day. Hopefully by next week up to 100%. I can’t tell you how much energy I have!!!!! And here is the link to the recipe!
