Green Day

The sprouts were a total success, and the easiest thing I have ever done. The kids loved to watch them quickly grow and fill the jar they were in. In three days (yesterday) they were done, and I rinsed them and put them in a container in the refrigerator. Grace and Garrett went all crazy over them! Crazy! They were grabbing them by the handful, chowing them down like candy, fighting over them. I made chickpea salad sandwiches and put lots of fresh sprouts on them. Yum, yum, yum!

I love it when the kids go nuts over healthy food. But last night we went to a movie and they drank sugary drinks and ate candy and went just as nuts over that. Sigh. I do the best I can. Life is not perfect.

I made this salad today and realized that the only veggies I have left in the refrigerator are green. But that's okay. It was delicious. The salad was delicious, especially since there was avocado and my own sprouts in there. It can be seen here surrounded by the freshly picked chemical-free strawberries I bought earlier. More to eat and freeze.

I ordered some raw cacao nibs for making raw chocolate desserts. I bet I can find something with chocolate and strawberries. If I do, I will share it with you.

Happy Summer Solstice, everyone!


  1. I have just started to eat raw cocao and found this blog post to be very good because it explains the benefits of eating raw cocao nibs
