We were in DC today for the kid's dentist appointments, so we headed to the Friendship Heights Whole Foods Market for lunch. Darren and I shared this tasty pre-made raw entrée from Ape Man Foods, along with a salad bar. Yum! —
Apparently, during my Winter hibernation, my vitamin D levels took a nose dive. I've been supplementing for awhile, but I think it's giving me weird side-effects; mainly a "hot flash" kind of feeling, like a niacin flush without the red skin. I've played with the dosage, though, in the past week, and the lower dosage does seem to be alleviating the annoying symptoms. I'm also making a point to get out in the sunshine mid-day everyday. Jeesh, this maintaining balance and good health is tough!
This dressing was super simple, but really tasty... tahini, apple cider vinegar, black pepper and smoked paprika. I didn't add any sea salt, because I added salty raw olives and kraut to the salad mix.
I made Zofia a quick dip for her cucumbers...
Hemp seed, dates, mustard seed, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, black pepper and parsley... a little water to blend... added black pepper last, just to mix it in a bit.
Nothing extraordinary... just whatever veggies were in the fridge... and a dressing of blended red pepper, carrot, fresh parsley, raw olives, mustard seed, a date, apple cider vinegar... topped with a little hemp seed and black pepper. Tasty!
Every now and then, I do a mono-fruit day to simplify my food prep, give my digestion a break and clear my mind. Today I hung out on Watermelon Island. It was a welcome retreat, before heading back to the mainland tomorrow!
