Raw Vegan Super Snack
I generally start my mornings with a Green Smoothie so that I can flood my body with very easy-to-digest blended greens and antioxidant-rich fruits and berries. By mid-morning I am ready for a small snack or breakfast. This is one of my favorites as it’s easy, flavorful, low calorie and surprisingly filling.
During my teens and twenties I spent a lot of time in Mexico where I began my love affair with mangoes. We would go to the market and buy a bag and I would polish them off at the rate of at least one per day. At the perimeters of the open markets you would always see vendors selling them on a stick, with lime juice squeezed on top and sprinkled with lots of chili powder. At this point in my life I didn’t find that combination of sweet, tart and spicy particularly appealing.
