Breakfast- 1 Monstera Deliciosa, 11 red plums
7 Years ago I was a volunteer at ground zero, two days after the tragedy occurred. After hours of grueling work in the rubble and dust and smoke I was told to walk over to a boat where they were passing out food. As I walked to the waterfront front, I observed how surreal the dust covered trees looked. They were white, ghosts of trees, rather than trees. At the boat I was handed a brown bag and I took it and went and sat down on the ground against a building to eat. These bag lunches were made by volunteers around the country. I picture a group of caring women in church kitchens gathered together to make the lunches. I reached in the bag and took out a baloney sandwich and a silver foil wrapped Hershey's kiss. I put my head down and cried, sobbed.
On that occasion, in that place, at that time, I received as much loving nutrition as I ever have from any raw meal. Even though today I choose to eat raw food, I am still being nourished by that baloney sandwich and Hershey's Kiss.
