No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
NEVER underestimate the power of a salad!
I've been doing some deep thinking lately - about FOOD. But then again aren't we all? Specifically about SALADS. And here's why...
Even as a lacto-ovo vegetarian for 18 or so years I would always have that good-ole-standby salad ANYWHERE you go out to eat! My husband would get upset if restaurants wouldn't offer vegetarian options MORE THAN "just a salad"...and he's a meat eater. But at least I have his support in that aspect...and if not his support his respect of my choice. Sure...in the past...sometimes I would get 'bored' with "Just A Salad" option...but not anymore! I'm thankful for that option...no matter how lackluster it may be in some places! It's a happy, healthy, living food! I keep telling myself NOT to underestimate any salad...even the GHETTO Salads, as Dan McDonald says.
In other news...
Yes, it's been a while since my last blog post in here! Sorry about that! But I do have some "happenings...well...happening!"
I've been sprouting again! This past weekend I have a Salad Mix sprouting, as well as Radish Sprouts, and a Protein Power House Blend sprouting. Sure, you can add sprouts to salads, soups for crunch, etc...but leave me comments about what you do with your sprouts :) Also leave me comments about your FAVORITE sprouts as I will be starting more tomorrow!
I started my Window Sill Herb Garden yesterday, too! I will be TRYING to grow Parsley, Cilantro, Oregano, Chives, Sweet Basil, Dill, Thyme, and Lemon Basil!
I hope to start juicing again tomorrow!
Speaking of Juicing...I know there is a lovely juicing section, here, at RFR but I was wondering if anyone had any recipes SPECIFICALLY using or including Mustard Greens as I have to use them VERY soon!
Last month I went on vacation and wasn't a good high-raw-wannabe and it really did a number on me! My digestion (or lack there of) was the worse it was in YEARS so last week I was back to trying all sorts of things in addition to high raw...apple cider vinegar, lemon water, Prune Juice, Herbal Concoctions, tea & teasines, etc.
So, digestion is my main reason for doing this! I have had digestion issues all my life and I need to reverse any long term damage I could have done. I will not be going to the doctor but at the same time when and if I ever have to go I want to know I did everything I could while I could. I don't want to have colonoscopies and all the potential problems that go along with it if it can be avoid and I know it can be!
Oh yeah! Also...Friday I did Raw Cucumber Spaghetti! Since I couldn't get Zukes or Squash anywhere locally for a good price - or that looked very good and fresh for that matter - I decided to do the spiralized pasta with Cucumbers instead and it was still stellar!
I'm always looking for blogging buddies, gchat friends, and high raw people to lean on...so...add me as a friend!
I am unable to join in with Cleanse America at the moment but I am with them in spirit :)
Let me know how you are doing!!! It's great to be back!
