One of the hardest parts of adjusting to a new city or in our case sometimes even a new country is finding out where the best places to shop are. I tend to be very faithful once I find my favorite markets and rarely will that involve less than 3 or 4 different places. Yesterday I found a great organic market called http://www.planetorganic.ca/ourstores/edmontonnorth. Although I don't necessarily buy a lot of my groceries in organic (mostly because of the cost) I do love specialty stores for things like chia seeds, tempeh, certain vitamins and so on. Now with my venture into 'Raw' it's a perfect place to find new products. Yesterday I found the oat groats that I've been searching for and am in the process of trying out a new recipe from http://heathereatsalmondbutter.com/recipes/oatgurt/ the oats are fermented in water over a few days. First I soaked them in water all night and then this morning I ground it down until creamy. Now the mixture will ferment and thicken over the next few days (hopefully!).
Had a great workout today and I was pretty hungry when I got home so I had another sandwich with the raw bread but this time I toasted it - so good! It was much better and held together perfectly.
