Farmer’s Market _ Sunday

Farmers sn 4.20.8

Awesome Broccoli Greens!! Whoo Hoo! yay colorful stars Quite gorgeous, fresh ‘n’ ready :^). *Love* the almost-blue dark green. Of course, lots of Eat To Live ‘butter,’ the HOGacado (aka avoHOGo) that I am, I had to get me a couple ;^D This time, bacon and hass.

Ooh, and scored on some whole nuts! These were grown by a small farmer. He was not certified, but said he was organic. Oh, well, ya gotta trust someone sometime 🙂 Into the freezer go they. Hmm…hope there’s room.
No organic sprouts this time, but Thursday is sprout day, so I’ll stock up then along with some other goodies.
Some purty flowers, of course…To the left of the almonds is a type of choi, not sure which. Choi/choy is another cruciferous vegetable, so super-nutrient rich, very high in calcium. I love the super-dark green ones best 😀 No watermelon radishes disgust upset.

Oh, and, it got cut off in the top pic, but I got one of these Chinese lettuces — Wo Ju, or “celtuce,” “asparagus lettuce,” “stem lettuce,” “celery lettuce,” “Woo Chu,” “Wo Sun,” “Stemuretasu,” “Kaki-Jisha” Whew — the center of which, I haven’t tasted! (at least I don’t remember) It looks like a long root. I was told to peel and eat the center. So, as ordered, shall tonight 😉


Speaking of sprouts, I’ve been adding them to my GJGS’s — a concoction I came up with for my version of a green smoothie drink — Green Juicie Green Smoothie. It’s juiced leafy greens + whole leafy greens + whole fruit + liquid (I like my herbal ptisanes) = YUMMY! This way, I’m getting in enough greens (more, actually, than I was before with just Green Smoothies) without the bulk. Four (edited: now 7-fabulous!) years of ETL and I’m at a point now where I eat about 1/2 the volume as when I started. Quite a difference! But *awe*some, nonetheless. Plus, I really, really, really have come to hate the feeling of fullness; and now, I practice hara hachi bu. AND I still get the nutrition of the whole leaves; so this, methinks, is one of my better ideasbrows AND I get the extra greens power from the green juice. I’m super-soaked in green goodness!

Here’s one of my GJGSs:


This is how I really drink them though :

    […] When I juiced it, the flavor was strong. It’s like ginger in this sense. Basically, small amounts needed. I love it in my GJGS’s (green juicie green smoothies). […]

    Mmmmmm, these look wonderful! I’m still doing usual green smoothies because I don’t have a juicer, but I imagine they would be even yummier with some green juice in them. 🙂
