Today was truly a rest day.

I didn’t go anywhere. I didn’t do anything. I stayed home and rested, fixed food, and ate it.

100% Raw Food

34 ozzies OJ/strawberry smoothie
26 ozzies OJ
Kim chee (mine—part of it rinsed, part of it not)
Romaine leaves
3 persimmons
2 zucchini, spiralized, with Magic Tomato Sauce (I used lime juice in it and liked it better)
5 tomatoes
Salad of romaine, red leaf, tomato, cucumber, dressed with EVOO and lime juice dressing (not very good) (I added some balsamic vinegar to try to redeem it and it didn’t help a lot)

Between the kim chee and the persimmons, I made a huge banana/romaine/red leaf smoothie that was totally undrinkable. I don’t know if it was the greens or the bananas but it tasted AWFUL! It took up residence on what’s left of the compost pile. If the Livestock eat it, they’ll deserve what they get. I hope it doesn’t kill the earthworms. And I hope the Livestock haven’t eaten all of them.

Two of the three persimmons were among the first I got from Dario. They were still kind of greenish when they arrived. Instead of getting soft, mellow, and sweet, they changed color but they just sort of shriveled. They have a good flavor but they’re kind of dry inside. I have a couple of them left I’ll take to eat at work. The juicy ones are too messy.

The zucchini I got at the supermarket yesterday were organic! I’d been kind of avoiding zukes because they are said to be GM more and more now and there’s no way to know if they are. I’m like one of the girls on the forum. Why GM a veggie that’s so prolific to begin with? You plant two plants in case one dies. They both live and you have enough squash to terrorize the whole neighborhood plus there’s always one zucchini that you don’t find until it’s big enough to hollow out for a canoe.

My spiralizing zucchini days may slow down even more since I found these. I e-mailed the company and they are raw. One of the forum members has had them and said they don’t have that yucky seaweed taste that nori and all the sea veggies have. Since I need the iodine, I could justify the expense. Especially since it might get my thyroid back in gear. I’ve wanted to find a way to get iodine without having to resort to Lugol’s solution or something similar. I have a lifetime supply of dulse that I’ll probably use to fertilize my plants. Can’t handle it. Can’t handle nori. I had most of a package of it that I gave to my DD. That reminds me. I’ve found some fish-free nori here. This doesn’t state that it’s fish-free but a company in Australia carries it and the site declares it to be vegan. The zucchini person has some and said it doesn’t smell as strong as regular nori but she hasn’t gotten up her nerve to eat it. She feels the same way about it as I do. She lives in AU and got it from the AU company.

While I’m on the subject of food, I got more info from Bubbies about their pickles. I have yet to write back. I may wait for a few months and see what the progress is on the sauerkraut.

I have ingredients for kim chee and had planned to fix them tonight but never did do it. I have been particularly “do-less” lately and I’m going to have to get in gear and get things done. This is ridiculous. I have the energy but I don’t have the drive. Maybe it’s the holidays. They’ve changed tremendously since I’ve started eating raw. Too bad that so much centers around food.

On that cheerful note, I’ll get ready to turn in. On top of everything else I haven’t done, I haven’t gotten to bed on time—again. Good night.

    Glad you called the Kelp noodle place Tommie! Love the info. Also, I read your posts above and am going to try the Marinara Sauce! I am always looking for healthier options to the standard heavy fat Gourmet Raw fare. You are a gem, and it is very motivating reading your website. I am going to make OJ juice tomorrow. Just reading your posts makes me crave it! *L*

    I’ve found that, if I have questions, most of the companies are truly happy to answer them.

    OJ is wonderful and so is my grapefruit juice—now that I found some that are both good and affordable.

    It’s gratifying that my blog helps you, Floop. CU on the forum!
