moments like these…

I love believing in kindness towards children. When he grabs something from her, I don’t have to threaten, punish, shame, or ignore him. Instead I can open my heart, give her empathy, and then offer him love, knowing that is what he is asking for. I love that.

    Oh my goodness, that wrap looks amazing! Did you use Nori to wrap it?

    I made a super yummy dish this morning- I usually LOVE omelets with mushrooms, spinach and onions, but I’m keeping up with the raw so I marinated some mushrooms (a variety that I got in a grab bag at the Farmers Market) with soy sauce, lemon juice, fresh garlic and onions overnight and popped them in the dehydrator (they only needed about 2 hours). Then I wilted some spinach with a little olive oil and salt- just massage it until it is wilted to desired conistency and mixed it with the mushroom mixture- so delicious! It tasted very similar to the cooked version I used to make, but so much better for me!

    Did I pass along my recipe for Kale Chips? I can’t remember, so sorry if I did already! Get several bunches of kale, it doesn’t really matter which variety. I usually get 3 bunches as that fills my dehydrator. Rinse the leaves and strip off the stem, tearing the leaves into pieces as you go. I do each bunch separately- put the kale into a big bowl and add about a Tablespoon of olive oil and a little less than a teaspoon of salt- I prefer Celtic Sea Salt. Massage the leaves until wilted, just takes a few minutes (great workout for your hands/arms!) spread out on a dehydrator sheet and do the same to the rest of the kale. Dehydrate at 105 for several hours- depending on the humidity where you are, anywhere from 4-8 hours, or until desired crispness. I love potato chips, so when I am craving something salty and cruchy, this is what I go for!

    I’m experimenting with cauliflower “popcorn”, I’ll let you know how it turns out!

    I love the picture of your kids sleeping together- so peaceful and calming just looking at them- so precious!

    I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day!

      Hannah:
      These recipes sound so yummy! Thanks for sharing. I did wrap that in nori…yum. The breakfast omlette, what a great idea. I’m not strictly raw, but sure enjoying the smoothie in am, then huge salad for lunch and dinner wrapped in either nori or romaine. Just made a chai spice chutney (dates, cinnimanon, ginger, cloves, can’t remember rest) and that drizzled on wrap is scrumptious. Such a time of bounty right now, too, with all the fresh local greens. ahhh.
      Have a great weekend.
