    The colors of this dish were so pretty, that I took a picture of it :-) There was something in it, though that was a little too much for me. I am new to combining all of these great healthy foods, so I’m not sure what it was. I’m guessing it might have been the parsley (since I’m not use to eating fresh parshley or maybe the organic soy sauce I used was a little strong). I couldn’t eat it all by itself, but I mixed some of the avacoado & carrot salad with some fresh spinach, romaine and tomotoes and it was pretty yummy.

    I just realized that i didn’t add any Agave Nectar…I’m sure that would have made a difference and sweetened it up :-) Will have to try again…

    All you recipes are amazine, especially due to being raw. Can I ask what brand your blender is? It seems so effectively powerful.
