I am quite proud of myself tonight – I have made a dinner salad for myself and eaten it all up:
I chopped all of the arugula from today’s share, chopped 1/3 sm. red bell pepper, two very small onions, and topped it all with a version of my “cheddar cheez”
THIS CHEDDAR CHEEZ/DRESSING
1 C cashews
juice of 1 lemon
1 small onion
1 t chili seasoning
1 t powdered garlic
1/2 t sea salt
1/3 red bell pepper
Water to cover
Place cashews in a high powered blender (VitaMix) and cover with water. Add remaining ingredients.
Process until smooth.
Use as a dip, or as a sauce or salad dressing.
Close your eyes! Cover your ears!
I’VE BEEN SECRETLY DOING GREEN SMOOTHIES!! – but my way.
TONIGHT’S GREEN SMOOTHIE
1-red Cippolino onion
1 clove fresh garlic
3 small celery stalks
5 tomatoes1/2 T spirulina
I find I enjoy the salad tasting smoothies better than smoothies with fruit, i.e., I am happier with green smoothies that garlic and onions than with ones that have fruit.
I am satisfied to have my fruit plain in a smoothie.
