I have nearly had a cold for 2 days now and frankly, I’m fed up with it.
One of the benefits of being healthy and having a good immune system is that I don’t get ill very often. I do pick up viruses, but usually shift them within a few hours. Two days is too long for me to feel “not-quite-right.” Yes, I know, I’m a prima donna!
Anyway, my impatience got the better of me and I made this today:
Blend the following:
1 litre water kefir (drain out the grains and use them again!)
The quest for the perfect Raw Curry goes on, but I did manage to make a sort-of curry sauce today. It’s not good enough to post yet, but I’ll work on it.
I had a busy and stressful day today (my sculpture exploded in the kiln yesterday, so I had some extensive repairs to do!) and I had an energy slump mid-afternoon. Fortunately, a punnet of cherries and a bar of raw chocolate soon sorted that out. How decadent this diet is, where Chocolate and Cherries a healthy meal!
I found a lovely shop in Chichester (my nearest city) which sells all sorts of wholefoods including lovely raw stuff! I can highly recommend it. The shop is called Manuka Wholefoods and it’s tucked away in Little London Walk (which used to be called Sadler’s Walk but now for some reason isn’t.)
They have a website: www.manukawholefoods.co.uk.
Check it out if you’re in the area, or look them up online. I bought some gorgeous raw chocolate coated mulberries… mmmmmm. =)
Today’s recipe is very simple, but delicious. It’s a really top juice with a bit of a kick:
1 melon (flesh only – the worms got the seeds and rind!)
1 carton squeezed orange juice (because I was lazy!)
1 tsp ground ginger.
Juice the melon. Pour into a tall jug and add the ginger. Top up with orange juice.
This was enough to keep two of us going all evening while we got on with some work.
Tomorrow… who knows? I may have figured out that curry sauce recipe! =)
