Having today off let me get a few extra mix-ins made up for use during the week.  I whipped up a batch of rice milk (1 cup cooked brown rice with 4 cups of water…Vitamix it), some TASTY almond butter (3 cups of raw almonds and 1/4 cup of EVOO… Fire it up!), Creamy cauliflower mashed potatoes (1 head of cauliflower, 2-3 cloves of garlic, 1/2 cup of almond milk and salt and pepper to taste) and finally a batch of homemade salsa using recipe from Rich Roll’s cookbook Jai Seed CookBook
