This morning we put the sun in a glass. Banana, carrots, oranges and lemon. This one is very good. And a lot more filling than you would think.
Hi ho hi ho it’s off to work we go.

Anyone that knows me is going to say, “You ate what?!?! Seaweed!?” Martha is the sea food girl, I have always disliked it. Mainly because I can not stand that strong fishy smell. And now here we are with vegan sushi, cucumber, carrots, celery, sprouts, yellow pepper and sweet peas wrapped in a nori wrap (seaweed) and served with a rice wine vinegar dipping sauce. My daughter is going “no way you ate that” right about now. But to my surprise, it was good. The wraps do have a slight ocean smell/taste to them but not bad. Not bad at all. And so my food explorations go on…
We got our Vitamix Tuesday and we have been blending up a storm! Wow is this thing powerful! We loved juicing but we had so much pulp to compost. With this we have next to nothing! Nice! We both feel pretty awesome eating raw.
It has been fun for me searching the web for recipes to help keep it all interesting and diverse. There are a few foods I will miss and finding replacements for them help keep me raw.
More to come…
Our “bucket of beans” is doing well! Grew a foot while we were on vacation! And our “bucket of carrots” is also doing pretty well. The new raised bed is also looking good. It is exciting to have all these things growing. We look forward to our first garden salad from our own garden!
You will notice I added Ani Phyo’s books to our amazon list on the left side of the blog. While we were away we had the chance to use Ani’s book and loved it! Loved it so much we got the kindle version of the Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen. Awesome! Check out her other books as well!
We got back from vacation to find our garden has grown a fair bit. We will do a garden update here in the next couple of days. Stay tuned!
