My Feast While The Guys Are at the Twins Yankees Game!

The Twins are beating the Yankees at the moment . I had to work and Mr M, brother and sons took Dad to the game for his birthday.

I actually made two side dishes tonight with my savory green soup.

Just celery and almonds fed into the cuisinart for the un-rice. (top left) Plain thawed frozen organic corn with nutritional yeast and cayenne sprinkled on. (top right)

And my savory green soup is just parsley, tomato, cucumber, half an avo, a few almonds and sea salt blended (garlic treat too) and garnished w/ a wee bit of sesame oil, dulse and sea salt to taste.

Happy Full Moon!

Full Moon In Salad Bar

Make a salad worth howling about tonight. Full moon in Sag demands some cayenne!

Ponder this moon phase and goals or projects started on the new moon two weeks ago.

Things can often move forward during these next few days and settle into fruition with a little extra effort from you.

And packing your own condiments might make all the difference between a truly clean and hydrating salad vs. one with additives, refined sugar or even poor quality fats !

Raw PayDay Ball & Eli's ElderBerry-Hibiscus Kombucha


Remember the salty/sweet Payday Bar? This is it, for me. Just hempseed, maca and a sweetener. I'd prefer yacon but all I had was honey. And sprinkle with pink salt.

Garnish with a splash of fresh ground celtic sea salt.

Serve with Eli's Elderberry-Hibiscus Kombucha (my source, please do ask about how to get Eli's Kombucha) ;)

Simple Superfood Fruit Salad

I sprinkled my normally midmorning elixir onto my lunch.

Yum! It's chlorella nuts, royal jelly and hempseed ove banana and apple. The chlorella gives it crunch as well as great detoxing properties.

Served with love and almond milk matcha. I sprouted the almonds two days a la Dr Wigmore.

Cool Coconut-Chia Pudding

I'm not even sure I'm really at this simple level permanently or not. And it is almost not as rich and intense as I usually am satisfied by. But after this whole week of almost 100% raw and working out, I have followed my spiritual foodplan and something shifted.

I must have a) became more alkaline because I found my usual ACV water to be waaay too strong this a.m. b) I'm due for resting since I worked solid straight thru my days off last week.

Anyway, keeping it simple with my green tea feels really nice.

The chia superfood should give some post-workout support.

Just :

1 young Thai coconut meat and some of the water
6 soaked prunes and water
1 banana
a few clusters frozen peaches
1 spoon chia soaked a few minutes in the blender before blending.

Blend & garnish with a berry.

Why Not? A Smoothie-Porridge Breakfast. Does A Body Good (for reals).

Ever eat a pine cone?

Not really.

But a smoothie porridge could work.

6 soaked prunes and water
1 young Thai coconut meat
1 apple peeled (nonorganic)
2 Tblspn hemp seeds

Blend until creamy.

Place in dish.

Top with spoon of almond butter.
Spoon of maple syrup or appropriate sweetener. (optional)
Spoon chia seed.
Spoon ground flax.

The chia is chewy. You can stir it in and let chia soak a few minutes.

Blessings for breakfast! ;)

Food Plan & Body Movement Plan

For me, abstinence means loving myself and extreme self care. ;)

Rule: 3 meals a day before dark (or 6pm in summer)
Permissable snacks: herb tea, kombucha, coconut kefir, bee pollen, chlorella tabs, and of course, fresh green juice.

I've been reading Angela Stoke's "Raw Emotions" and devising more structure for myself around food plan. I've noticed that for me, moving my body is actually more important than trying to find the exact right menu. This is because I'm in need of the endorphins and pro-active sensations I receive from moving it around.


I've been able to stop coffee and cacao now and don't feel as sluggish as I did the first few weeks. 

I don't actually think I will need the Meltzer dinner plan of baked potato and steamed veggies or corn on cob but I have included it as occasionally allowable if I want to. I saw Dr Meltzer with Wulf and Arol Zendik back in the late 70s and he made a big impression on me. He's basically of the Paavo Airola lineage and promotes raw foods but also a wonderful awareness of calories, fats, body movement, spiritual growth and transitioning with some acid foods. 

I'm struggling for a daily reprieve from emotional pulls to use food as comfort. Otherwise, I'm basically ready to be 100% raw as far as I can tell. (As Angela says you can have anything you want at all times it's a matter of "What Would Love Do" and what makes you feel best?)

Tonight I went for a long walk at dusk, the magic hour they call it in Hollywood. Walking I realized I had a pain in my heart chakra and that I could release it now. I realized it could have been hurt from an early misunderstanding or it could have really happened in my youngster years that I felt alone. Nevertheless, I've sensed this as a palpable sensation like a dagger in my heart for several years going high raw now as I keep peeling back the onion layers of self-awareness and healing. Tonight I actually felt the earth Mother holding me as I was ready to let it be expelled. I could feel the sensation of expelling something out my heart chakra and the relief of the pain leaving me.

Hey my heart took a big poop!
