fresh mint and basil finely chopped,
1 red onion finely chopped,
Loads on ripe cherry tomatoes,
Juice of 1 lemon, crushed garlic & extra virgin olive oil !
Half cooked fava beans with crushed garlic, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil.
Fresh to death: my aunt has a garden and yesterday mum went and collected some broad beans. I just spent a good hour in the kitchen cooking and preparing veg.
I’m back in Cyprus for a short while and it’s so damn great to be eating so well again! Fresh fava beans!
This is an old salad that I never uploaded for you all. It was in December when there was plenty of rainbow kale around. It is pretty green at the moment, still the same tasting, but somehow eating coloured kale is more excited. Especially the purple kale, someone I was everything to exist in that colour.
So this salad was kale, beetroot, raisins and seeds. Damn delicious. Need more kale.
Can I ask if you yourself have experienced candida? If you had it you would realise that this man does not know what he is talking about regarding the subject. I understand the benefits of raw veganism, but they do not apply to candida. The genus of yeast feeds of CARBS/SUGAR and as long as it is ingested you are feeding the parasitic bacteria.
It is known that the fatty acids in coconut oil actually work to kill candida and other yeast infections. I have researched it thoroughly on the internet as well as consulting a naturopath and a dietician (memembers of my family).
I’m sure you are being sincere in this so thank you, but you should do a little more research lovely.
Well, candida feed on sugar, so in most cases a raw vegan diet would exasperate candida. Sugar does not necessarily mean refined sugar, it refers to any glucose, fructose (fruit), and starch. On a strict candida diet you would cut out all fruit. I am sticking to one banana a day. Acidic fruits exasperate candida, mushrooms do also, as does dried fruit. However, it is possible to eat raw vegetables, more or less anything green, carrots and beets in moderation… The only fat that is an issue are nuts because they usually have high quantity’s of mould.
Fat is not the issue, carbs are however. I’m not a doctor or anything, this is just based on my research and experience.
There are two ways in which I am reducing my plastic consumption:
1) no plastics bags
2) wooden toothbrushes
If you live in the UK these should be easy enough to find in any alternative/organic shop, or I believe that you can purchase 3 online for £8. Personally, I prefer the way they feel in my mouth, they make me almost excited to brush my teeth! They are ecological an worth the money as they typically last me longer than a normal toothbrush, plus every little help for our Gaia!
Save some green!
So I started a new diet to treat my candida (yes, I have it and it sucks) and I sprouted Mung beans and ate them with hemp seeds, tahini and pepper. It was delicious!!! So many sprout left.
I love eating this way! It’s been three days and I feel like I’m becoming so healthy! Eek!
Here is a shitty bit of food combining for you, but I couldn’t help it. Upon seeing all the rotting bananas in my fruitbowl I decided that I must ingest them quicker, and suddenly remembered one of my favourite mixes.
When living at the community I used to mash up bananas, and then seperately mix olive oil (virgin, cold pressed - we made our own) with carob/cocoa powder, turmeric, and chilli, combined with a tiny squeeze of lemon and some seeds, or cacao nibs!
So delicious, but naughty!
