I have read it is cheaper to buy raw produce then buying boxes and boxes and bags and packaging and wrapping, which when you don’t have that raw…how do I say…alkalinity you just can crave and go through many packages of manufactured “food”. It becomes less and less enjoyable when your body starts craving its usual avocado, or mango, or apple, or banana. The green smoothie a day has really helped my body start this raw love affair.
My mom gave me some raw food tips this weekend, one of which is just so simple I feel like a dolt not to have thought of it, anyway here it goes. Cut up some raw cabbage and toss it in a bag in the fridge. Whenever you are ready to make your favorite salad toss that in as a “filler”. Years ago I read cabbage has more vitamin C than grapefruit (my favorite fruit right now), is a wonder medicinal food all the way from the ancients, is super cheap, comes in purple and pink, and keeps in the fridge for ages.
These days for me my favorite salad means adding the cabbage to romaine, tomatoes, flax seed oil or Udo’s oil (even better), than olive oil, and soy sauce – delish!
