More basic stuff today.
Overnight oats with chia, banana, goji berries, coconut flakes, and pumpkin seeds. Feuling myself for the food pantry.
I brought my camera and took photos of the veggies this week: carrots, corn, and eggplant!
Doesn't the corn look fresh? No one believed me when I told them you could eat corn raw! I had another nice conversation with some woman from Barbados who grew eggplants, sugar cane, cauliflower, long beans... I also had a sign up sheet for a farm trip that the program is heading! Next Monday (the 22nd) we're going up to visit the farm (Hearty Roots in Tivoli, NY) where the weekly vegetables are grown to talk to the farmers and tour the grounds! I am really excited and will definitely have a post on that one for you.
Here's lunch and snacks that I packed for later:
Raw Revolution bar, some strawberries, and a bunch of vegetables chopped up and mixed with the tart filling. A cross section shot:
Tofu ricotta, squash, red bell pepper, broccoli, and tomato.
Chilled golden beet soup, steamed kale with tahini sauce, and way more chopped vegetables than I could eat. I gave some to G.
Tomorrow I've got something tasty, I promise. Tonight...to drink or not to drink is the question.
