Valentine's Day again, I love it. Of course anything that emphisizes Love and
Happiness I'm a fan of but for me its important to show love and kindness everyday. I'm happiest when I making people happy, thats the way it is in this wonderful world, we prosper most when we are in service of others.
But I have to feel good myself before I can be kind to anyone else, this is a major benefit of eating a raw vegan diet, it makes me feel so good, and everyone benefits.
Today was great, I really felt a love vibe when I was out and about ~ people were happy showing their softer side, helping each other out, giving compliments, smiles and flowers everywhere, nice but pity the love is only openly expressed on occasions. I must reach out to more of my fellow earth siblings about the benefits of this pure diet that I am blessed to enjoy and be adept in.
I made a love~pie, chocolate dipped stRAWberry and heart shaped chocolates. The pie crust is made from 1 cup of goji berries, 1/2 cup dried cranberries, 2 cups of mixed ground flax, seasme and pumpkin seeds, and a strawberry all processed together. On top was a chocolate mixture made from coconut oil, honey and raw choc powder, same mix made the choc's and I dipped the strawberrys in.

Wednesday, February 11, 2009
It has been quiet with me lately, I suppose I've been doing some hibernating and reflecting on my life, I've been Wrapping myself around the last of the Winter blanket but now I feel it is getting time to Spring forth with the changing seasons. I'm so looking forward to more day light~ (delight), there is so much I'm going to do this year, cant wait.
It hasn't been challenging at all to continue eating raw foods this weather. I read that it is harder in Winter but I didn't think about it or anticipate it too much, instead I got into the flow and listened to my body, I am blessed that Raw Food is all that my body wants anyway which makes things really easy.
I am doing some detoxing, I am intuitivly eating just two meals per day and one of these is a blended-super-concoction of ground flaxseeds, bee pollen, goji berries, hemp oil, cacao nibs, and spirulina or suma mixed in with a dash of enzymes and a sprinkling of a probiotic tablet, it tastes so rich and sweet it's gorgeous, and knowing how good all the ingredients are makes it even better. It clears me out and nourishes my insides and tastebuds on it's way, yay.
Another staple for me these days is the Nori Wrap, with seed-cheese inside and various other things. Today I had lettuce, onion, and bean-sprouts and a half teaspoon of reishi mushroom powder, last time guacamole. It's nice to put seed-cheese on just lettuce leafs too for a quick snack. I make seed-cheese like this:
2 cups of soaked or sprouted sunflower seeds
1 cup soaked cashew nuts
Juice of a lemon
3 or more cloves of garlic
Less than a 1/4 cup of olive oil
Dash of salt and pepper
In the food processor and process for at least 5 minutes.
Then spoon it onto a nori-sheet with other sprouts or veg.
And then it's a Wrap ~ the ultimate fast food.
