Farmer's Market, A half pint is enough...

Breakfast- 1 cantaloupe

Lunch- from Pure Food & Takeout: 3/4 pint Almond Buttercup Ice cream, 2 Oatmeal raisin cookies, 1 thumbprint cookie

I went to the Union Square Farmer's market early this morning.  I love getting there early when the air is fresh and cool and the vendors are just getting finished setting up.  The local melons are in season and they're delicious.  I use that word a lot; maybe I should expand my taste related vocabulary. 

img_0141.jpgToday I bought Red leaf lettuce, large heirloom tomatoes, small brick colored cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, apricots, watermelon, cantaloupe and blueberries.

The past several times I've bought Ice Cream from Pure Food... I have not been able to eat it all.  It's so rich that I quickly become sated.  However, I have that thing in my thinking that makes me afraid of not having enough so I keep buying whole pints.  Would somebody please remind me that a half pint is enough the next time I want raw ice cream!  It was a wonderful treat but like usual, it doesn't beat my fresh fruit for making me feel satisfied after a meal.  The cashier at Pure Food... and I joked about how expensive the tiny but insanely delicious the Thumbprint cookies are.  I said that I need to take out a loan to buy one; the cashier suggested that I pay with my own two thumbs.

Next time you feel like having ice cream try blending a frozen banana in your VitaMix. My organic grocer/restaurant has a machine he runs the banana thru then he puts it in a raw dehydrated cone. If you want to know the specifics you should contact them at www.akashaorganics.com.
For those of us that refuse any and all cow dairy, it is a gift from the gods! The best part, you can have as much as you like and the only side effect is good health. Enjoy!
