Who is the Salad Master?
I am the Salad Master - self annointed, but I think my taste buds are wise.
Mixed leaf salad with rucola and parsley, spring onion, cherry tomatoes and 1 ripe avocado.
Dressed with cold pressed olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, honey(agave if you like) and a sexy splodge of tahini.
The raw me has the biggest sweet tooth & ever since my first month or two at the community I have become even MORE addicted to avocados (if it were even possible hehe!).
This was my post workout dinner because I was a hungry girl:
Banana Avocado pudding:
1 ripe avocado, 4 ripe bananas, carob powder, 2 medjool dates & a tid bit of lemon juice.
Put everything in the blender until smooth, put into a serving bowl with seeds of choice (brown linseeds for me) and then lick the blender clean, and then your bowl.
I was modelling as you do. Today I asked mumma for some banana’s and she came home with two huge bunches.
I looked at her and said “Today is gonna be a good day.”
“How do bananas make it a good day?”
“How can you have a bad day with this many bananas?!”
Ontop of having so much goodness she bought me some naughty medjools and I made it to the gym! I feel full of power, lets just hope my exams go the same way!
I have been slowly transitioning to raw again and now it feels like it wants to stay. I say it all the time, but now really I have been 2 raw meals a day and 1 cooked, and now its 3-5 raw meals a day, and I feel able to do it again with the support of my family. It is really possible that some of them will join me in raw too!
So anyways, some delicious Tahini (well LOTS of it) and apple and carrot sticks. Who knew apples went so good with tahini? New addiction? It is quite feasible.
I live in Cyprus, not in the States lovely!
Some left over deliciousness I spied in the fridge. Initially it was just finely chopped parsley with cherry tomatoes and lemon juice (most likely olive oil too), and someone offered me some sprouted mung beans to add to it, so voila!
Here you go a delicious raw salad, and guess what you didn’t have to prepare any of it!
According to Georgia I look delicious in this picture (so I decided to upload it - heehee!). I felt really “stylish” on Saturday in my Mickey Mouse party dress (it has presents and party hats all over it) and my long socks. I don’t know what it is about knee high socks, or almost knee highs that make me so glad, but I felt so kick-ass in this outfit (not to mention my chunky hiking boots) that I walked around with a permanent smile and a slight skip.
It is funny how an outfit can add to your day, so here is my advice to you all: wear something that makes you feel good! Even if it is typically not enjoyed by others. Wear what you want, and what makes you happy. Don’t care about what others think. I spent a good portion of my life thus far doing that, and you know what it gave me depression and an eating disorder!
Here is to Joy and Healing! Just remember it is your life so do what YOU need and want to do.
Saturday Adventure with my wonderful new friend Jesse. Initially we went cycling to the market and on our way back we decided to go find a beach, and there was this spot which I had always seen, but never actually swam in. The reason being that usually I went there with someone who wasn’t so up for the climb down the rocks, or the swimming in general. Plus I usually get lost so I’m never sure if I can find certain places again (and not everyone appreciates my lack of direction), but Jesse was patient with me, and we FOUND ourselves in this wonderfully beautiful bay (lacking people! Woo!).
So yeah, it was a pretty active Saturday, with Cycling & Swimming and then some awesome yoga (taught by Jesse). I’m so happy to practice with someone, I was talking to him and explaining how when someone does something with you feed on their motivation as well as your own, so you have double the will and resolve! Needless to say this wonderful boy has inspired me to get back into yoga!
Also, it is so thrilling to meet someone of a similar age! Not that it matters or bothers me at all (because I love all the people in my life) but it is just so interesting to watch another’s capacity for growth!
Ah! Thank you Jesse <3
Yet another Blissful weekend back home with my beautiful family at Gaia Urania. I feel so full of joy and love, and I don’t know what to do with it, I don’t really need to do anything with it, it just drips of my skin touching those around me.
I feel such a great change in myself, in my life and I have truly come to see how lucky I am! I am so lucky for my parents, for my condition, for my health, for my friends, for my freedom and for my knowing. It makes me so glad to of been exposed to this lifestyle at such an early point in my life because I feel like I have the best teachers to look to, and I feel like I will be living this way until I die. I’m a bit hyperbolistic, but hey ho!
When I am at the Community I cannot but help to go to the beach every morning as it is so close by, and I also want to spoil my beautiful Beau with the seaside. So morning missions to the beach, and afternoon missions to the beach are necessary. They wake me up, rejuvinate me, and then ensure that I sleep like a baby!
Also, I just had to take photos as I was super excited by my outside this day! Gabriel left his wonderful jumper and so I have temporarily adopted it.
I’d never eaten mulberries before, but the wonderful Benedict pointed them out to me the other day (they weren’t ripe at the time). But a few days later I went to a restaurant with mum and her clients and there were trees covered with ripe ones!
I got so bored with mum’s clients (all that wedding/work talk) and so I wandered off outside and filled cup upon cup with mulberries.
And I tell you they are scrumptious!
