snack: fruit and raw carrots at church. I am doing a "hospitality shift" every two weeks and bringing in fruit. Other people brought in the usual stuff, crackers and cheese and sweets. The response is mostly positive--people saying, oh good, fruit! (since no one ever thinks to bring fruit to these things). But one guy said "I gotta go get a donut" and he did.
Lunch: 2 Essene "buds" from the co-op. This is unleavened bread made from sprouted wheat berries. Ingredients are sprouted wheat berries, almonds and raisins. It's pretty good. It's sort of like a small muffin. Steamed kale and carrots with a delicious root vegetable-sesame sauce. For the vegetables I used two small turnips, half a rutabaga, part of an onion, and 2 garlic cloves. I love this meal. The sesame seeds (pureed) add a nice bite to the flavor. I'm realizing that sauces should have a bite to them because they get diluted in the vegetables, plus they balance out the bitterness nicely. Dessert: 2 small oranges.
Dinner: salad (lettuce, arugula, spinach, chopped orange bell pepper) with a blueberry-pomegranate dressing. The dressing is really good! I seem to be on a sesame seed kick now. The dressing is from the Fuhrman site. It has sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, a bag of frozen blueberries, pomegranate juice, and Dr. Fuhrman's blueberry vinegar. The sesame seeds and vinegar add a nice bite to the flavor that mixes nicely with the slight bitterness in the lettuce and arugula.
