back to school!

Im finally going to go to college.. Something Ive always wanted to do. The idea of being in classrooms with kids half my age is a little daunting, but, I've never let fear stop me from doing anything.  This will not be an exception. Wish me LUCK!

Going raw!

I spent most of the weekend in my kitchen getting things prepped for this coming week.  I made a fresh batch of cabbage slaw, a batch of almond yogurt, and cashew cheese.  I also experimented with Flax for crackers.  I hydrated about a 2/3 cup flax in water with a squirt of aminos, and some garlic and onion flakes.  I let that soak for several hours and then stir it up to check the constancy. (i wanted it pretty gelatinous) then I simply poured it into the tray in my dehydrator set it for 105 and walked away. Several hours later I had some VERY tasty crackers!  As soon as I put my first batch in the dehydrator I started my second batch. This time with Nutritional yeast, onion, and sea salt.  Then when the first was done the second could go in.  I estimate that I should eat a batch a day.  So Ive been keeping my dehydrator VERY busy!  And yes... The nutritional yeast Crackers were AWESOME! 

Breakfast today was:
A banana
3 flax crackers topped with Cashew cream cheese, sea salt, and Chard leaves
1 chard stem
1/2 roma tomato

Ive been really craving Avocados!  I can't wait for our produce to arrive at the co-op so I can buy a whole bunch!!

New Year contemplations

This year I'm thinking about doing something that has been itching my brain for YEARS!  Raw Veganism.  I've been lucky enough to have the DREAM JOB of anyone thinking about this adventure..  Quite literally anything I could ever need to be successful is at my fingetips! I just need the nerve. Ive been watching some videos from my friend Allisa and and I think I can do it!  So.. Starting Monday January 10th.. Ill be going raw.  There is going to be an adjustment period I'm sure.. So bear with me and I shake it all out!

Excuse me as I make my shopping list for tomorrow:

Raw Almonds
Raw Cashews
Mustard Greens
Flax Seeds
