- Baby arugula
- Baby spinach
- Baby kale
- Handful of chopped tomatoes
- Handful of cucumbers
- Handful of parsley

We’ve been using the nut cheeses from Kite Hill and Treeline lately, but feel free to experiment with what you can find. Or, even better, you can make your own nut cheeses. I have a Raw Food University course that will teach you to make your own nut cheeses, plus other dairy substitutes.
