Raw Food log, 2008, 2/28...

On Thursday, 2/28/08:

Breakfast- 7 ripe bananas

Lunch- a smoothie: 1 large pineapple, 1 head Romaine lettuce, two cups water, blended

Dinner- 3 Honey tangerines before preparing a salad of 1 head Romaine lettuce, large handful chopped Dandelion greens, 1 pint cherry tomatoes, 1/4 tsp dulse flakes, 1 tsp hiziki, juice of 1 lime, 2 tbs tahini  

Also, I rarely mention this, but I drink a lot of water.  This morning I drank about 48 ounces in the two hours or so from when I woke up until eating breakfast.

I hadn't planned to eat a salad but I stopped in at Integral Yoga Natural Foods to pick up some groceries and the mixed green and vegetable salad came to mind.  It's been a while since I made an actual salad with multiple ingredients.  I have to admit that as I was preparing it, the multiple ingredients became less and less appealing.  I didn't like the idea of all of those different things in my stomach churning around so I left out the chopped celery, the shredded carrots, and the avocado I had planned to include.

Hiziki is not a regular item on my menu, but I bought some because the store was out of dulse flakes; as it turned out I had dulse flakes that I had forgotten about at home.  I soaked the hiziki and then couldn't take the fishyness of it and I only used the tiniest amount.

The salad was okay, not all that I had hoped it would be.  I think that I would have been more satisfied with eating a head of lettuce and a few walnuts.

wikpedia said this about hijiki: "Recent studies, however, have shown that hijiki contains potentially toxic quantities of inorganic arsenic, and food safety agencies of several countries (excluding Japan) have advised against its consumption."
