Delicious banana-berry breakfast bowl! I blended 3 frozen bananas, 1/2 cup coconut water, 1/2 cup frozen wild blackberries, & 1/2 packet of @sambazon unsweetened açaí purée. Topped with 2 more fresh ripe bananas, 1 passionfruit, a few fresh blackberries, & some dried mulberries. Also a couple edible flowers.
Yummy #gardentotable salad for me this evening! 🌿
Lots of persimmons, apples, dates, and pomegranates throughout fall & into winter … also citrus fruits … and bananas which are in season all year round. Then ataulfo mangos starting in February :)
All the veggies I like in my salads are usually easy enough to grow (however I end up buying lots of imported zucchini, cucumber, bell peppers & tomatoes in the winter because they prefer warm weather and I just love them in salads too much to not eat them for 6 months.)
Also winter squashes like butternut, and spaghetti squash. Mmmm. Those are great winter staples.
Depends where you live. Try getting as much as possible from the farmers market… then go to the locally owned grocery stores in your area… and if you’re in the States I know that you can even order fresh organic produce online from places like “Melissa’s produce” http://www.melissas.com. (I wish we had that kinda thing in Canada! They have some sweet looking tropical fruit sometimes ;)
None actually. Not really a fan.
Hi Ryen, other than garlic I don’t really plant anything else outside because I have a coldframe greenhouse (I plant all my winter stuff in there). Beets, kale, carrots, calendula… winter lettuces… those type of things, but they are def one or two degrees warmer and more protected from the elements in the greenhouse so I don’t know how well they do outside on the coast.
There is a facebook group of Sunshine Coast gardeners you can join and everyone there is super helpful and would def be able to give you a better answer! It’s called “Sunshine Coast Farm/Garden Swap and Talk”… look it up and join! They answer my Q’s all the time :). Over 1000 members.
I love messages like this :). Makes me so happy! I hope it works out for you, and that you feel great and love it!
Vegan #gardentotable nori rolls tonight! I filled the nori sheets with kale, lettuce, cilantro, scallions, alfalfa sprouts, chioggia beets, cucumber, yellow zucchini, & avocado. Mix of 3 tbsp coconut aminos, 1/2 tbsp tahini, & juice of 1/2 lime as a dipping sauce.
Such a yummy breakfast this morning… strawberries, bananas, & red dragonfruit!
Middle eastern inspired raw-vegan rainbow salad bowl this evening! Tabouli, falafels, kale, tomatoes, & lime-tahini dressing. Yum! Tabouli made by pulsing 1 small head of cauliflower, small bunch parsley, a few cherry tomatoes, & juice of 1/2 lime in a food processor. The falafels were made with carrots, sunflower seeds, cilantro, lime juice, scallions, & cumin and the recipe is from @easytoberaw (it’s on her youtube account, and really easy to make!)
Hahhahah I know!!
I honestly don’t know why that is happening to you. I’m not an expert and I don’t want to give you the wrong or bad advise… because that sounds kind of serious.
First thing I would do, which I know won’t harm you further, is buy or borrow a blood sugar monitor and figure out how to use it… and then test yourself 1 & 2 hours post high carb fruit meal (like over 75g carbs at least) and see how your blood sugar levels are. Your symptoms don’t match those of somebody who has blood sugar issues (frequent urination, yeast infections, feeling thirsty) but it’s worth checking anyway. If it’s not okay then look into diabetes diets (I’ll post some stuff in a few minutes, as I’ve been asked a few times about it) … but if your blood sugar is a-okay then honestly maybe it’s just best to avoid fruit until you can eat it and feel okay. The food we eat should make us feel fabulous! Like we could go for a run right afterwords :). You could have oats with maybe a little fruit (like berries and/or dates) or something like that.
Or try different fruits… and make sure they are ripe! That’s important.
I hope the problem goes away asap! Sorry I can’t be of more help!
Look at this cool V for vegan tattoo! From @kaleidoscopee_eyes on instagram :). http://instagram.com/p/slacEQtbY5/
Chioggia beets! These are my favourite variety if beet to grow. They taste very similar to regular red beets, in my opinion. Also really easy to grow where I live. This beauty is going in my salad tonight! 🌿 #organicgarden #chioggiabeets (at Sunshine Coast, BC)
