Cucumber and Avocado w Onion, Cumin & Turmeric
This is a great hybrid meal – part raw and part cooked. This recipe in particular is mostly raw, but the onion, cumin and turmeric are cooked and are extremely healing and warming for the body. This is a great one to do in winter when you want to eat raw, but also want something cooked to warm your body. These types of hybrid meals are becoming popular for people who are wanting to incorporate a lot more raw into their diet.
