It’s funny where this work takes you. I seem to have veered off the path somewhat but not in a bad way. I think this has been partly to do with my work with the “Eco-Organizing” Workshops that I have done. Doing the preparation for these workshops is an eye opening experience and I have learned so much.
One of the ways this has impacted me is that I am very focused on what I am putting into my body. It all made sense to me when I watched the movie “Hungry For Change”. This inspired me to purchase a juicer (as well as my very healthy friends who are also juicing on a regular basis) Where does are food come from, how many miles has it had to travel to get to our tables? There is so much we take for granted in our lives.
I am working on eating raw and whole foods as much as possible, shopping at the local farmers markets, buying directly from farmers, eliminating processed foods and thinking about other ways that I can really make a difference in my life but also in the lives of others.
It is taking me some time to figure out how much produce I need to make a few juices a week and also a few smoothies as well. Seems they are both focussed on breakfast so this is taking a big of juggling.
Here are a couple of my recipes:
Tomato, cucumber, celery, piece of ginger, carrots, apple, kale or any greens, parsley
frozen banana, frozen blueberries, strawberries, etc. yogurt, milk (can use almond milk), chia seed, salba (power food), big handful of spinach or other greens
YUMMY!! There are so many great foods to try!!
