2 leaves rainbow chard
2 leaves red lettuce
1/2 c water
juice from 1/2 lemon (squeezed)
1 T raw blue agave nectar
dill (to taste)
1/2 lg carrot
3 T canna-oil (or whatever floats your boat)
onions to taste
blend the chard, lettuce, water, tomato, lemon juice, agave and dill. i chopped the chard, added 1/4 c water; added the lettuce, added 1/4 c water.
shred carrot in bottom of bowl. add your oil of choice. think of it like a booster. add blended mixture (mix). top with chopped onions. let sit for a bit so all the flavors meld together.
sided w/ sammich of tomato, earthbalance, and garlic sprouts.
i found a sprouted grain bread. it's pretty effing good.
also started: kombucha. it's made with a black tea/rose petal blend and a white tea. i had to use golden yellow sugar, but definately investing in organic cane sugar when i visit the store tomorrow.
there's a shift: acknowledgment.
energy is pouring out, there is a second skin folding over itself.
i want to start a living foods journal. of a hand written/under my pillow type.
planet organic haul:
miso soup convenience packets (unpasteurized, freeze dried. like astronaut food.)
a tofu/yeasty cheese
can of coconut milk/chickpeas
manageable? it's funny how shopping at the teeny tiny organic grocery is comparable to the surrounding food chains if i play my cards correctly.
note to self: curry and lime kind of belong together. sprouts also belong in the curry once plated.
keeping your meals somewhat raw keeps you mindful.
maybe it might have helped.
either way, it would have helped us as a unit. or give us an ability to form a coherent one.
dearest square one:
you can fellate me.
soup and breakfast pita
soup: red pepper creation + maple syrup*
preparation: heated to 80F by placing soup bowl in a larger bowl and filling larger bowl with boiling water.
chickpeas that had sprouted overnight
1 T raw tahini
1 T red pepper creation
mash all ingredients with fork. stuff 1/2 pita*.
the red pepper blended stuff settled overnight. it wasn't the consistency i had originally wanted, but it was alot less watery.
overall preparation: 25 mins. this includes working around the washer in my kitchen and rinsing the chickpeas i have sprouting in a jar.
i figured it was probably a better idea to do something with the bell peppers acquired from today's adventure.
this is my first (near) raw preparation experiment.
sprouted chickpeas (just a few that were ready from yesterday's first sprouting experiment)
2 orange bell peppers, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 c canola oil*
1/4 c water
1/3 c raw tahini
drizzle sesame oil*
maple syrup to taste*
himalayan salt (pinch)
i fed this through the blender. i was opting for a pate that would be alright for a mezze dish (where it's served over sliced red peppers (which i had on hand) and cucumber rounds (that i was going to pick up tomorrow).
next time, i'll cut the water to try and achieve pate consistency (underestimated the blender).
probably most ideal as a soup, sauce, or dip.
edit: this is way too high in oil.
1/2 c = 120 mL oil. 60 mL oil for both "portions" (i froze the other). i consumed 1/2 the blend in pita/soup. so 30 mL (2 T) per oil is about what i got. this would be a fairly indulgent raw recipe. but i have no idea how it compares to some of the uncookbooks downloaded. then again, raw secrets equates one avocado with 1 c of oil (at least as far as fat is equivalent). so, perspectives.
today's haul: 2 orange bell peppers
1 red bell pepper
2 hummus portions
2 potato salad portions
2 bean salad portions (lentil, six bean)
1 curried rice salad portion
1 house salad
when i was leaning over the dumpster, i dropped my phone inside. the dude perusing the goods after me had found it, so i split my bunch of bananas with him.
definite banana bread tomorrow morning.
before i run myself broke i really need to invest in a food processor.
