Lunch for my sister! Chopped organic apples and strawberries. Plain organic yogurt sweetened with raw honey topped with mint and crushed almonds! Delicious!
This was the Conscious Kitchen LA spread from last night!

Improvisational “empty fridge” lunch! It’s always nice to make too much brown rice for when everything else in your fridge is gone! Luckily I had a little bit of green onions, half of an avocado, nori snax, spicy sesame oil and lemon! Mix and eat!
Total surprise improv at a friend’s house with nothing for a Vegan in her fridge but the Quinoa I brought and some veggies for a macaroni salad she was making! I threw together some celery and cilantro and tossed it into my Quinoa and dressed it with lime, olive oil and salt! Delicious and fresh!
I may be able to kick my coffee addiction after all! This delicious drink is incredibly flavorful, rich and made from roasted Barley and Rhye! I discovered it at Whole Foods the other day and now I won’t be tossing and turning when I get the urge to have a cup of coffee at night! I’ll just have a cup of INKA and I’ll be O.K.!!
When one practices “Conscious Eating” there is very little room for junk if it’s done right. Ever since I became a conscious eater, almost 9 months now, I’ve become wonderfully creative with what I put in my body for nourishment. I don’t consume meat of any kind, dairy or bread. I left most sugars behind except for Coconut sugar and occasionally raw cane sugar. My food selection is made up of fresh fruits, greens, vegetables and legumes. I try hard not to eat too much soy or processed foods.
So what am I left with on days when I crave junk???
Here is a picture of a decadent lentil taco! Yes, it is fried and yes there is vegan cheese in the taco along with roasted salsa and celery for crunch!
It was delicious!!! Those of you who follow my blog know that I frequently experiment with lentils and all of its applications. Here they are mimicking potato as in a delicious “Mexican Potato Taco”. At least I fried it in Grape Seed Oil!
Posting this is making my mouth water! ”Vegan Pizza Party tomorrow ha?….all I want is that incredible Tea Leaf Salad from our best place in San Francisco, Burma Superstar!” Then we were off to our second best place in SF, Groove Merchant!
Cancer - The Moon Child
The tide turns twice, then turns again
Cancer’s Moon Children watch from houses
with all their windows open wide
wanting to be touched by everything
Endless naked moonlight swims in the green
Throbbing with the wave beat
Laughing the lunar laugh
Sobbing in the dark when the moon shrinks
Pearl is white, onyx black, both are smooth
and in Cancer’s feeling hands they come alive

Aquarius - The Lover Life
Four, four hundred or four thousand dreams may decay
into indigo dust that covers Aquarius
and still the voice will say ‘love’
Go, be, but forget no one, Weak, strong - all belong
In the friendly opal light of Uranus all men can blend
yet still be what they are.
