RAWSOME PEANUT SAUUUCE!!

omgomgomg, waaaaaay stoked about this!! It is so so so soooooooo yummayy!! It tasted exactly like the last peanut sauce I made, except that, um, there were no peanuts, & it's raw :) So awesome.
You can serve this with whatever you like; I meant for my carrot/celery concoction to look more like a slaw than mush, but it still tasted amazing. The addition of garlic & ginger in the veggies was def important (or put it in your grains, whatevs).
I seriously could not wait to post this, and I cannot wait for you to try it! Please let me know what you think, and/or post any modifications & recommendations. It is sooooo easy to make this; take a few simple ingredients, & a few simple seconds :)
I was starting to get moody & b*tchy on my cleanse, and I'm just barely halfway through. Then I realized; I'm just BORED! I was eating the same damn thing every damn day, and my body had had it. No wonder I was fighting cravings! I feel much, much better after having this, as well as some Char Stars, & some raw oatmeal raisin cookies. I may have indulged more than I should have at once, but rather than feeling sick after, I felt better. I had focussed so much on veggies that I had forgotten how much I needed "heavier" & filling foods. (Also, my metabolism is up so high it's kinda scaring me, haha, so I've been eating waaaaay more than normal.) Veggies & fruits are important, but so are fats ;)


**Also discovered the next day that by adding a teeny bit of water, a delicious salad dressing is born!! Yum, yum, yummy!!
