Dr. Feel Good

I haven't been feeling too chipper the last few days. Stuffy runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, sinus headaches. YUCK!

Today I absolutely had to get some work done but I just felt like crawling back in bed for the day. Instead of resorting to that, however, I decided to try to make something that would make me feel better.

I came up with the Dr. Feel Good Shake. Within a half hour of drinking it, I was no longer sleepy and I had an overall feeling of well-being. I actually felt like running around and hugging everyone. I did still have a runny nose and all, but I did feel a lot better. I have noticed that quite a few people have mentioned on their blog that they had a cold, so I decided I would share this with you!

Dr. Feel Good Shake
(makes about 32 ounces)

4 bananas (frozen is best)
2 cups water
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. of vanilla
And here is where the feel good stuff comes in....
4 T of "Go Goji Cacao" (dried goji berries & cacao beans - raw blend)
1 T Hemp seeds
1 T Royal Jelly in Honey

Blend it all up and enjoy. About a half an hour later you will feel full of hugs and energy!

UPDATE: It has come to my attention that "Go Goji Cacao" is no longer being made, so just throw in 4 T of raw cacao and a small handful of raw, dried goji berries.

Made to Order

Bob and I found a couple of raw products that we had never seen before at out local co-op, the Clintonville Community Market. We decided to give them a test spin... for YOUR benefit, mind you!!! [grin]

There were raw breads of various varieties, and raw red cabbage. Bob is doing a product review over on his site, for you.

I just wanted to give you a little glimpse of how we used them! It is just one slice of "bread", in this case the Sun-Flax Italian, topped with the red cabbage and some mung beans. Very nice!

Where's the Passion?

Doesn't that just make your mouth water? It is called Pineapple Passion Fruit Salad, but alas... I could find no passion fruits to lend their seeds to this wonderful dish! I made this for Bob and I about a week and a half ago following a recipe by Heidi and JS of Raw Food, Right Now! You can find the recipe in their Raw Easter e-book!

The above photo makes a delicious wallpaper for your computer! Go ahead and download it to your desktop... you know you want to! [grin]
