Everyone around me I think is coming down with a cold or the flu, I feel like I would like to go live on top of a mountain somewhere, you know where it’s clean the air is fresh and you can smell the pine in the air. The grass is always greener on the other side, I live where the sand on the beach is so white it looks like sugar, what more could a person want? A life free of sickness and disease that’s what. Going raw was my way of preventing a life of doctor’s appt’s one medication after another, if only I could convince those around me of this.
This week I did have a friend over for a raw lunch, Penny is working on going raw, as she puts it “it just makes so much sense” I had a recipe from The best of Raw Freedom Community,http://thesunnyrawkitchen.blogspot.com/2008/07/introducing-best-of-raw-freedom.html it’s a great e-book to have. The recipe is one that I have been wanting to try but when you are the only one in your family who eats this way, even cutting a recipe in half is still too much. Thanks to Penny I now have enjoyed this wonderful dish.
Two things I liked, the spinach was one. I always have so much spinach on hand for a daily salad that it was great to have this dark green another way. Last I wanted to try to because the recipe did not look like favor overload. One big thing about eating Raw is that you are not cooking out all the water of your fruits and Veggies, the water is where all that favor comes from. Now when the recipe is 98% fruits and veggies, this can add up to a lot of different favor coming though. I chose Spinach and Cream pasta casserole. Just what I wanted, a good tasting dish with mild taste, the Pine Nut Parmesan on top gave it an extra bit of a cheese favor.
With winter here I want my food warm to eat and this dish spends 1 hour in the dehydrate before serving. Both Penny and I loved the dish, good job Carmella. If you want this recipe and many more great ones go to her blog.
I’m off to the Co-Op to get “Ornithine an Amino Acid” and some Black Walnut tincture. I think I need to do a Gallbladder cleanse before the holidays get here. I’m not really looking forward to this; I’ll let you know if anything turns up.
