In order to comprehend things - I often have to do them MYSELF. People can 'tell' me how to do something but if I don't actually do it myself I won't usually comprehend the information. This goes for most things in life for me but many of which you will see here on my site are food related or "earthy". I do like sprouting and the more I do it the more I enjoy it! I just finished up sprouting a small amount of Pea Sprouts! The last time around I was less than impressed with the outcome. But THIS TIME I was super excited! Look at these BABIES! Aren't they awesome!? I used the Green Sprouting Kit from Sustainable Santa Cruz once again! I do LOVE this kit! As of last night I started soaking a little bit of their Spicy Blend. The Sprouting seeds were among the smallest I have ever tried sprouting so I am very eager to see how they progress!
Last night I made Mexican Rice for (Vegan) Mexican Foods Week here on MyBlissfulJourney.com and I really thought I had Tomato Sauce but I was mistaking! So I had to make my own! Here is what I did:
1 6-ounce can of Tomato Paste
1 and a half cans of water
1 tea of Wholesome Sweeteners Raw Cane Sugar
It turned out wonderful! I was so happy!
8 ounces of the Tomato Sauce (mentioned above)
2 T Grapeseed Oil
2/3 C White Rice
1/4 of an Onion
2 tea Minced Garlic
1 C Water
2 tea Wildtree Veggie Bouillon
1/2 C Corn with Green Chili's (or any mixed veggies)
This turned out SO YUMMY! I was VERY pleased with this! It was quick, easy, flavorful, fun, and I would totally make it again...just next time...I would make more of it!
As far as physical things are concerned I have found I must now wear my sneakers with my insoles at all times. For about a month - in the evenings - I would switch to Crocs with 'less expensive' inserts but I don't think I can do that anymore. I think I have to wear my sneakers with my Dr. Scholls Custom Fits at all times. I was told because of my High Arches and High Pressure to NOT walk around barefoot anymore so I haven't been. On the upside - my eyes are looking BLUER and I've been told that I look like I have lost more weight even tho I don't think I have. We are looking at changing cars and I had to hand over my drivers license and noticed how hubby my face was in the photo. It's nice to know that I can even notice that change. I did have a quick break-out last week but that is done and over with so that is good. My digestion is still wonderful and I couldn't be more happy about that (my digestion issues, that is).
You might remember my last review and giveaway from Fearless Chocolate!
I LOVE that FEARLESS CHOCOLATE bars are shaped with a "bite" representing the portion of our proceeds that they donate to Champion ChangeMakers suggested by their customers!
As for their Super Seeds Crunch option in their product line - I found it to be quite impressive! It tasted like dark chocolate with a hint of cherry, perhaps! I absolutely LOVE the 'crackle and crunch' the seeds provide in this! There is also a "barely-there' salt flavor from the sunflower seeds that I think is neat, too! The Flax, Chia, and Hemp Combo gives you that powerhouse round house kick to get you thru a busy after noon! It's a pretty marvelous product!
