The title amuses me because I am easily amused.
As I said in my last blog the move "Food Matters" has changed the way we approach the food we eat. We already buy organic if we can and we do our best to stay away from genetically modified food. I don't feel there is any need to prefect what God has created.
In the movie it states that for our health 51% of what we eat should be raw. This is for the enzymes, nutrients, and the fiber. They say that even light steaming kills of things that are beneficial to us.
Rather than change our diet drastically which we have found never works we have decided to add to our diet. We have started to add a greater quantity of raw vegetables and fruit. Our first dish was a broccoli salad from shredded broccoli with a light buttermilk/mayonnaise dressing. Very light just for flavoring. We found it to be very filling for a long period of time.
Last night I made a dish of shredded carrots, apples, chopped walnuts, and ginger root with just a splash of lemon to keep the apples from turning browner than they were already turning. The lemon did help bring out the flavors however. Once again we were satisfied with the full feelings for a lengthy period not to mention it was down right tasty.
Today I am thinking I might want to play with jicama in my next dish. Don't pick the large fruits rather like most other things modest to small is better.
Now if I can only convince myself to eat slower and enjoy the meal longer. I tend to over eat because I love the taste of the food and I eat to fast. I must learn to eat and savor the food. I would enjoy it the same amount of time without over eating.
