Hi cleanse world –
I am feeling SO appreciative of you all to take on this yearly challenge with me. It’s cyclical, it’s rejuvenating, and it comes at the perfect time every year. Time to reset, question my habits, and create new rituals. I love that no matter where we are in the world we can make changes in our little lives and share them. It makes me feel powerful!
Are you incorporating new habits or foods into your diet during these 10 days?
Here are some things I’m making this week:
- Eggplant and Herbs Dip
- A giant pot of steel cut oats
- Pickled eggplants — This was a very successful experiment!! Recipe on the blog soon.
- Hot and sour pickles
- This funny pumpkin…
- Became this roasted pumpkin that I’m putting on everything.
My plan is to make some buckwheat granola, and use a fruit puree in place of whatever sweetener would normally be added. I’ll send an update once I’ve tried it out…
If you’re not sure what to cook up, consult our Recipes page. Craving something sweet? Try Shaina’s Raw Fudge Truffles.
Today, we’re challenging you to take 5 minutes and call your representative about something that’s important to you. This website, https://5calls.org/, has everything you need to do that – a list of timely issues, contact info for YOUR rep (in the US), and a call script. I already called Representative Issa to urge a hurricane relief bill for citizens in Puerto Rico and the USVI.
Let us know what you’re eating, what you’re feeling.
