Today is Wednesday. I have a voicelesson outside of NYC today! Wish me luck!

Today is my 5 week raw anniversary! Yay!

Yesterday i walked 2 miles and the day before i walked 1.5 miles and swam for 20 mins.

I can TELL i've lost weight. My clothes are fitting me better!

Earlier in the week, I made such a GREAT lunch and wrote down the recipe for you. It was meant to be low fat, but i could have left out the olive oil to make it lower fat.

I may be delusional, but i think it STILL contained less fat than i usually put into my "splurge" dishes, since i used soaked and germinated seeds, which contain less cals and fat than nuts in general and then there is the 40% reduction in fat when they are soaked. Soak your seeds and nuts, people! Why do you want the xtra cals and fat?

It was a nice uniting of flavorful with lower fat and lower salt, but "felt" like a splurge.

I ate it with attention when i was hungry and couldn't even finish it! I put the leftovers in the fridge for another time, which i enjoyed the other night.

P.S. Soaking seeds overnight also increases their digestibility because it removes the enzyme inhibitors on all nuts/seeds!!! In other words, by adding water to seeds, they 'think' they are planted in the ground and getting rained on, and they change their form from a dormant seed into a living being...germinating and ready to grow! Enzyme inhibitors keep them sleeping. Water wakes them up. Directions: Fill a bowl with water, add nuts/seeds, soak overnight, leave out on counter or in fridge. In morning, drain and rinse. Then pop them in the dehydrator on teflex and dry on 105degrees until dry, usually a few hours to 1/2 day to dry thoroughly. Store in airtight containers in the cubbard.


Lower fat, Lower salt, but absolutely delicious and flavorful! I so enjoyed this!

Hand shred some cabbage very thinly to make about a cup. I think that may be enough for a meal since there are other additions.

In a Vitamix, to create "Mayo", add:
-1/2 cup of frozen or fresh mango
-2 Tbsp of raw vinegar
- 1 Tbsp of herb garlic infused extra virgin olive oil (i made sage, garlic, rosemary, thyme, mint) (optional)
- 1 lg. garlic clove
- 2 handfuls, about 1/2 cup of germinated sunflower/sesame seeds. (I dehydrate mine and keep them stored)
- 1 small handful fresh cilantro
- 1 handful fresh basil leaves
- 3 shakes of curry powder
- 1 shake of ginger powder or a slice of fresh ginger, cut up (this helps it process in the vitamix)
- 2 shakes of coriander powder

1/3 cup water for blending
1/2 jalapeno cut into thin slices
1/4 cup germinated dehydrated pumpkin seeds
1/4-1/3 cup nutritional yeast
a small wedge of white onion

Begin blending "mayo" in vitamix, drizzling water into cream to achieve thickness/thinness desired. I think i might have used closer to 1/4 cup water. This created a thick and wonderful herby light green "mayo"! Pour half onto your cabbage. Store other half in fridge in airtight container for another time.

Sprinkle pumpkin seeds, jalapeno and yeast (for low salt saltiness and cheeziness) over cabbage and toss to coat cabbage evenly.

ENJOY!!! Eat until you are pleasantly satisfied.
