Gazpacho

Gazpacho

Summer is finally here where I live and it is so awesome!!!

This recipe is quick, easy, tasty and good on those hot days when you don’t feel like much at dinner, or you can even use as a starter or side dish.

I must admit though, there is nothing like a Southern Ontario summer tomato, but for now these will do.

Recipe

–  3 ripe Tomatoes ( I used regular ones here, Roma’s are nice as well)

–  1/2 Onion

–  1/2 red Pepper

–  2 stalks Celery

–  2 cloves Garlic

–  juice of 1 Lemon

– Salt & Pepper to taste

–  1/4 cup Parsley

–  1 tbsp Olive oil

Optional Hot Sauce & Wortcestershire – to taste

Put all ingredients in the processor chopped up first (big chunks is fine) process until the consistency you like it ( this one didn’t have chunks in it, it was somewhat smooth but not too smooth)

Garnish with chopped Cilantro, Green Onion & Avocado (if deseired)

This serves 2 good size bowls or 4 smaller ones.

Enjoy!!

Point of View

Point of View

I have been participating in these classes lately so I can move through some of my own stuff, but also it’s the coolest thing I have ever come across and have become a facilitator in the basic process and can’t wait to learn more and to share it, but I have to be honest – it is and has been pushing all my buttons in regards to food.

What if there is no good or bad, right or wrong foods – it’s just a point of view.  A point of view that someone had and started sharing it others like me, maybe you have taken on points of view as well, that is leading us to have a judgment, conclusion or make a decision about what is good or bad, right or wrong??

I know!!

And it keeps getting better!!

I have been really looking at all my stuff around food – what I should, could and can’t or shouldn’t eat, and like wow it’s kind of f*^% up!!! I’ve had some interesting point of views let me tell you!! I have also been asking alot of who’s stuff is it – as I have had a tremendous amount of guilt about eating alot of things – that ain’t healthy!!!!

Everything is energy, especially our emotions and if we’re feeling guilty, shameful or anything else that really is negative or anything that doesn’t leave us feeling great, vibrating joy – about what we are eating, well that just does more damage.  If we are restricting or denying ourselves, that isn’t healthy either.

What if we really started listening and talking to our bodies and asking it what it really wanted to eat? Or do?  How different would that be…..without any feelings of guilt or shame or I don’t have time or any other yeah but’s????

Just a new or different point of view I thought I would share with you…..remember a truth will feel lighter, a lie heavier……so how do you feel about this??

Spaghetti Sauce – Raw & Vegan

Spaghetti Sauce – Raw & Vegan

You can do so much with tomatoes and depending on the time of year the taste can be beyond words!!!

This recipes is easy and tasty.

Of course I used the Spiralizer to make the Zucchini noodles, which you can find on the Shop page or your local health food might sell it if they have carry raw foods there.

Recipe

–  1 cup Sundried Tomatoes  – they add a nice flavor and can be found in most stores, I didn’t use the ones soaked in oil and I soaked them in water for about an hour, anything longer than 10 minutes should be fine

–  2 – 3 Tomatoes Roma, depending on the size of them

–  2 cloves of Garlic

–  1/2 tsp Sea Salt

–  juice of 1/2 Lemon

–  8 – 10 Basil Leaves

–  Pepper to taste

 

Drain the Sundired Tomatoes and put all ingredients in the Vitamix (or Blender) process until the desired consistency is achieved, if you like it kind of chunky or really smooth, it is good both ways!!

Pour over your Zucchini noodles (or pasta) and garnish and serve immediately.  Serves 2

Enjoy!!!
