I'm learning to listen to my body. I went food shopping and greens were calling my name. I had some internal dialog that salad wouldn't be enough to satisfy me or my caloric need, but I went with it anyway. It was the perfect choice; I feel totally satisfied. I'll consume some calories at dinner. Besides, the smoothie I had for breakfast was loaded with calories.
Leland Jung, owner/chef of Alive!, a raw restaurant in the San Francisco marina, is now making raw dog food. Based on the BARF diet he calls it "hippy puppy chow." Its a "fairly solid mass of green-and-brown flecked paste" that consists of seeds, raw vegetables and traces of raw meat. Doesn't sound too appetizing but his Border Collie, Echo, likes it pretty well.
