Super, Eco-delicous, Brown-sprouted Lentils!

Lentil sprouts pack a punch of powerhouse of nutrients that delivers quality nourishment in a ecolicious, convenient form!

Lentil sprouts are so easy to make and are so good for you! Lentil sprouts contain Vitamins: A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, B15, B17, C, K, choline, folic acid, inositol, PABA Minerals: boron, calcium, chlorine, copper, iron, magnesium, molybdenum, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sodium, sulphur, zinc The amounts are loosely given. I love them over salads, but are good snacks on their own. Cook time is sprouting time.

As a long-term naturalist and natural health enthusiast I've been sprouting on and off for years. My favourite sprouts include: sunflower, buckwheat, mung bean, chia, and now brown lentil(Not too keen on the green thought).

To the brown lentil sprouts I dressed it with:

*Chilli powder

*Fresh garlic

*Pink salt

*Fresh lime juice

*Extra Virgin Olive oil

to this one added a couple of red / yellow / orange bell pepper and serve it with some crisp organic cucumber or any healthy salad!

Sprouting Tip!

Never get the sprouted tails(white)bigger then the lentil itself(once lentils have sprouted ie with white tails refrigerate for freshness.

So quick, so easy and fast-food at it's very best!

Love this!

Luscious Lemony Delight!

Appreciated a rather healthy and scrummy concoction(raw vegan cereal:) of sprouted buckwheat, ripe bananas and the juice of 1 lemon. This was especially sublime as this was a experiential dish full of bioflavonoids, amino acids, calcium, rutin, b vitamins, vitamin c and would make an ideal healthy fuel start for all the family(I'm sure growing children would appreciate this:). I was soo exited that I had to share this yummy recipe with ya all!

Sunday, 4th July 2010

Oh, I wish! I wish! I wish! I was one of those peeps who loses their appetite when they they ave things on the mind. Unfortunately for me I'm the complete opposite! From October 2009(I had a horrendous miscarriage at 12 weeks)I've been pretty good with daily Tibetans and asana practice. This week I've been a bit slack, yesterday's binge, tonight's binge has developed into a very bloated stomach(as well as the scares to one's disordered eating / lifestyle patterns ie I'm talking unsightly stretch marks and cellulite and I've yet to produce a baby. It's soo disheartening to be short and fat(I'm 5' 1' and a bit). I ate(binged) so late I only managed to do the MH and so disappointed that food is controlling me. I feel so useless. I need to create my life, my wonderful sustainable life, me potting around my forest garden, campaigning against Global pollution and the degradation and destruction of mother Earth and all that surround her. What a useless waste of space I am today.

Buckwheat Heaven!

Enjoying a lovely 'cereal' of germinated buckwheat, goji berries, bananas and cinnamon!

Binge alert!

I must, I must learn the art of conscious / mindful eating! I must slow down and really take time to savour the experience:)

Happy Birthday Diana!

Happy Birthday Diana!

Happy Birthday Diana!

Today would of been Princess Diana's 49th birthday! I feel humbled that we are both fellow watery, astrological sign, early Cancer(we're early crabs:)I still cannot comprehend that she's left her earthly body so soon. This is a tribute on how one would like to remember her; the lovingly-devoted mother and compassionate soul that she was.
