Hello Longevity Seekers!
I am hoping you are well this wonderful week in April! Southern California has been absolutely BEAUTIFUL this week! Warm and Breezy ~ Palm Trees dancing!
I acquired a DVD called “INGREDIENTS”. I am unsure if anyone has seen this DVD, but it is a wonderful film made to explore the SLOW FOOD MOVEMENT and Support of the LOCAL CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) in your area.
The DVD informs us of some rather shocking facts upon it’s opening and features some really wonderful community efforts in Oregon, NY and and few other stops along the way.
There is a wonderful quote I wrote down from the beginning of the documentary…
“I started growing vegetables with my husband…to recreate what we think is our duty. Our taste buds are there for a reason. They are there to guide us to BETTER NUTRITION. It isn’t greed or gluttony to like the taste of food. It is a natural drive to nourish ourselves.” Carol Boutard, Ayers Creek Farm
Did you know…
- 17,000+ foods are introduced to the American Public each year.
- Most Children born during the year 2000
- will have a shorter life expectancy than their parents
- An overabundance of processed foods has put our children at risk for Type 2 Diabetes
- There is no culture in the world that spends less money on their food that the US.
How do we change this? With our Forks!
Local Food systems are available and need to be intergrated into your life! Biodynamic Farms, CSA Farmers Markets and growing our own vegetables is really the best way to change things!
Fresh Food is ABSOLUTLY out there!
The Veg888 Kitchen will begin attending local Farmers Markets and BEGIN growing it’s own lettuce/greens! I am part of the fossil fuel consumption. We all are! As a society we really have to Reduce ~ Reuse ~ Recycle!
It’s like I always tell myself – “BE ABOUT IT – DON’T JUST TALK ABOUT IT!
I will only cover this documentary very briefly.
I had wanted to see this DOCUMENTARY for a VERY LONG TIME! It is difficult to find certain movies at various times and I was finally able to “seize the moment” and buy this Documentary.
The story begins with communication between an 8 year old artist and a young film maker name Yul Shulmen. The story begins to spiral from there and the end will have you absolutly astonished and the path everything follows. Even to THIS DAY.
In case you see this movie, I will not go into detail. However I will say this. The places our minds can take us the moment someone reaches out to us is amazing and very clear in this Documentary.(?) I place this question mark there since it left me feeling like it was all a planned/staged setting. If you see it, I would love to see what you think!
And finally…KALE CHIPS!
When I went completely Raw for the Parasite Cleanse I kept seeing recipes for KALE CHIPS!
Although I wanted to try them, something always happened and I just never did.
Last week, I decided I would like to try adding them into my diet. Why? RAW Lacinto KALE has protein, calcium and if you add nutritional yeast to your mix – you get B12! Very important for us as Vegans/Vegetarians!
So here we go!
For 1 Bunch of Kale…
1 C Sunflower Seeds (Soaked)
1/4 C Nutritional Yeast
1/3 C Water
2 T Olive Oil
2 Cloves Garlic
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/4 tsp Chipotle
1 pinch salt
Place all ingredients into a Food Processor or Blender until it is a thick paste.
Once the paste is made, place over the kale and massage the paste onto the kale. Once all of the kale is covered it is ready to place onto a teflex sheet and place in the dehydrator.
These will be in the dehydrator for 5-6 hours. I made 4 trays worth! They were delicious!
Here they are all in a jar ready to be eaten! I enjoyed them quite a bit! In fact my taste tester ate the ENTIRE JAR in one sitting! I will make more this weekend. I will try another flavor of course! Something spicy maybe.
Thanks for reading!
Love and Light!
