Raw food is an important part of my vegan diet. So, last week at the local Super Target, I splurged and bought a teensy container of organic raspberries. They were $3.50 of pure berry goodness! A real treat: low in calories, and high in vitamin C, fiber, and flavor!
Over a couple of day's time, these raspberries were my breakfast. I rinsed them off and then simply popped them in my mouth! Heavenly! Typically, I don't combine sweet fruits into recipes, unless it's an all raw, all fruit one. I have learned that fruit digests and is assimilated by the body best when eaten alone, on an empty stomach. For some, this might seem like too limiting a "rule" to follow. But for me, it fits just right. I always feel so uncomfortable when I eat foods of every kind all in one meal. Simple is better for me. My body concurs.
I married my wonderful Jordan in November 2003. We have no children. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am a Vegan. I love hearts and rainbows. I love to smell beautiful blooming flowers. I love to read about investing and healthy living, but I also enjoy a good yarn. I love to play Nintendo (on both old and new game systems). I love to eat (especially fresh garden tomatoes.) I love to jog. I love organizing stuff. I love to smile. I love to laugh. I love to sing. When I was two years old, my mother wrote of me, "She has gobs of rhythm and likes to jive." (updated August 2012)
