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!
Some more pictures of my cheeky snacks! All I have to say is its better than chocolate, or any cake that I would bake..
This ice cream consists of 2 frozen bananas and some fresh strawberries topped in granola and hazelnuts.
I always have problems with cravings, and it seems that every time that I ingest anything I automatically crave something partially sweet after. I think it is because I am conditioned to do so, however, I am trying to get into better habits and eat healthier things in place of the weekly indulgences.
I skipped loads of bananas lately so I have five tubs of frozen bananas in the freezer, as well as a bowl of browning ones. Also, I was walking home from a sleepless night the Saturday prior, at ten or eleven in the morning, and I just so happened to walk past M&S… Needless to say I was a post rave zombie gawking at all the pretty and expensive food my little student ass can barely afford, but the granola and the nuts enticed me… They are about the same price in Sainburys/Tescos, and triple in the organic shop, oh well… oops!
So here is my half raw dinner of the other night:
- 2 frozen bananas blended with 2 medjool dates, wheatgrass powder and carob powder, topped with fancy granola and a selection of roasted nuts.
Have you guys tried this fruit? I never knew such crazily delicious things existed. Living in the community I became somewhat of an avocado fiend and so you can imagine my delight in finding out about these bad boys. Mamay is a very fatty fruit, and has a very similar texture to an avocado in that is is rich and creamy, however it is slightly fleshier and extremely sweet!
Oh good fruit! I miss you!
Again, I have skipped out large chunks of my life. In the past months there have been many major events in my little life. The last I posted involved me going off to Mexico, and it has almost been two whole months since then. I have let this blog stagnate (once again) as I am well known for, but this time I really do promise to get back on track. I do although have a large backlog of pictures so my posts might not be time relevant to my life.
Before I continue I think it just to give you a brief recap of the past few months:
Thanks for the projection. You need to calm down though.
I will reply to all of your lovely messages when I arrive back!!
Con Amor, Paz y luz.
So here is to a month of no posts! Sorry for not informing you on my happenings!!! I have been travelling, namely in México, as my heart (lover is here) and I came to visit him for Christmas. I’m in love with this place, the food, the people, the landscape, David… And I leave on Wednesday so it will be hard on my heart.
I’m in love with this man.
Kubla Khan, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1816.
One of my favourite poems throughout the years. Every time I read it shivers sweep over me, and the hairs on my skin find themselves erect. I feel a burning, passion intermingled with madness upon the reading of the last stanza. The madness of having known pure bliss.
