So I've decided to stop b.s'ing b/c Spring is right around the corner and I would like to ring in the New Year (not the Gregorian New Year, b.u.t the Asiatic one) as in tune with myself (Earth) as possible. I've fluctuated in degrees of Raw for about a month, so on March 1st, I'm going 120 days of 100% Raw. The whole household will be partaking in this, especially since I'm the one preparing the meals!
At one point, I missed cooking. I missed the satisfaction of throwin' down and gettin' props on a bomb ass dish. To be honest now, I'm tired of it. I remembered how much time I spent in the kitchen (too much!). I'd rather use that time to build with my family or do something for myself.
I may actually cave in and get a video cam, and if I do, I will be documenting my journey on YouTube. Werd.
You may even come with me to Bed Bath and Beyond while I re-stock my culinary supplies (b/c they're still in Florida).

I needed some time off to attend to other things and get back on my Raw grind.
So I'm back!
I think what I've been missing are my lil' supplemental goodies that I coveted so much. You know, goji berries, coconut butter, all that good stuff. It made Raw more exciting. So I think this weekend I'll be placing an order, b.u.t for what, I'm not sure yet. Whatever it is though, it has to last, b/c if my sweetie gets his hands on some gojis or cashews, it's game over. They'll be gone in a few days. lol
So on Sunday my sweetie, babies and I went to Mecca (Harlem) to attend Parliament for Father Allah's physical Day. I was able to meet my buddy finally C'BS Alife Allah, who blogs on Black to Nature: Adventures of an Urban Raw Foodist. We go back to the GI2MR and SoulVegFolk days (which I'm hopping back on Give it to Me Raw woot!) so it was really peace to build with him and his alikes. Gave me more motivation to stand on my square and keep it raw!
Purple Powder all day Son. LOL

Had a really delicious smoothie this morning, and like always I have to share:
- almond milk or vanilla rice milk (still haven't tried to make my own)
- pineapple (and lots of it!)
- orange juice (2:1 ratio of 'milk' to OJ)
- honey or sweetner of choice
I didn't have any banana, and would usually add the banana to thicken it up, but I liked how this turned out with the flavors. Almost like a spin on the Creamsicle (aka Orange Julius) smoothie/popsicles I used to have back in the day. If you really want it thick, you can add the banana, or just add more pineapple.
Pretty soon I will be venturing out to a couple of health food spots like Linda's Organic Market in Kew Gardens. I've heard about that spot for a while now and I'm really in need of some flax seeds.Hope you enjoy on this Superbowl Sunday!
