Many of us have found that food plays a large part in our physical and mental health. Some of us struggle with our relationship with food. What are you eating (or not eating) these days?

snowleopard, I just made that kale beet salad and it is delicious! I used stone ground mustard in the dressing since I didn't have dijon and it was very tasty. It was also the first time I made a dressing with no measurements, just my taste buds. My taste buds work good!

hi everyone! thank you vv for the wonderful recipes!
i just figured out today that i need to eat a low residue diet.....(my random thoughts blog from today explains why).

anyway, very low fiber, no fresh fruits, or veggies, or whole grain foods. no seeds or nuts or corn. very little milk products. no dry beans, peas, or legumes..... i can eat meat, but well done, no gristle, very little grease.
no berries, no skin from fruits or veggies...i can have small amts of cooked veggies and canned fruits. i can have white bread, pasta, rice.

anyone know any good recipes for this, or where i can find some?
(websites i can look for)

thanks, rosey

Sounds like you need a yummy noodley casserole, Rosie. Or... what about vegetarian meat substitutes? (i.e. seiten, which is basically processed and marinated wheat gluten) I'd have some recipes for that...

wheat gluten? is that different from whole grains? (sorry, i'm still learning).
i'd love some recipes....veggie meat substitute? i'm not supposed to have a lot of veggies..even cooked, and no legumes, or beans...is that the same?
i tried looking up recipes on the web, but they just aren't there...that i can find, anyway.

i'll take what i can get! thanks sam!! =)

hey jaklumen,
thanks for the tips! peanutbutter is ok...just not crunchy type! NO coconut flesh, coconut milk is ok! i love rice, i love asian food, and i love mexican food!!! mmmmmmmm!
i think peanut oil is ok...as long as there's no seeds, or nuts to digest (which there's not..i have sesame seed oil & there's no seeds).

This week's garden challenge was Fennel!

Yummy Fennel Cucumber Salsa (i made it more chunky like a salad and put it on a bed of greens, if you chop stuff really small it becomes salsa)

Large Fennel Bulb (or a few small ones)
Large Cucumber
Red Onion
Avocado
Hungarian Wax Pepper (or pickled peppers if you have them)
Cilantro
Juice of large lemon
A few tablespoons of honey

I mixed the honey + lemon juice in bowl first then chopped everything up and put on top and tossed. Super simple, freshy fresh goodness.

Oh my goodness, Yum!

With such intense flavor, I wonder why I don't eat more fennel?

Healing with Whole Foods by Paul Pritchford

Postby favororange » Jul 09, 2010 10:01 am

This book is encouraging a balanced approach with diet. Emphasising a harmonious relationship with food.
I am still reading it and intergrating deitary changes it's sugesting and find it supportive to a wholistic approach to mental / phsyical / spiritual health.

Something else i realised yeasterday after shopping a the bulk section in the grocery store, is that buying organic bulk is a great way to save $ on meals and it seems to average out the overall with the expense of shopping (health food stores) conventional.

I like to make nori rolls with tofu, avo, sesame seeds. nori is great to eat buy itself for a snack too!

have a wonderful day everyone

i just made some simple and tasty home made guacamole! i can eat very little fiber and very little raw veggies and no gluten, so i couldn't buy the mix. here's the recipe:

2 avacados peeled and mashed
4 cloves garlic minced
1/2 small onion finely chopped (i used 1/4)
juice from 1 or 2 limes (i used 2)
cherry tomatoes finely chopped (i used 5)
salt and pepper to taste

mix everything and chill for 1 hour

yummy! and not spicy.

hi jaklumen! i just love mexican food and i'm so stoked that i can eat corn chips!...just not corn kernals.
yes i meant spicy hot, although i love hot...but i'm not able to eat a lot of chipotle peppers, and jalapenos and such :(

I just mash up some avocados and then add about a half jar of salsa and some lime juice.
