A Mid-Summer Mid-Day Meal
What it is: A green-phytonutrients rich meal that will keep you light, refreshed, and energized for late-afternoon thinking and writing.
Benefits: This combination of greens brings you the detoxifying, energizing, and trace mineral-rich composition that keeps the mind fresh and the body clean while providing essential nutrients. As with most plant-based diets, it’s predominantly water-based and rich in micro-nutrients, minerals, and vitamins.
In the oven (425 degrees, for 10 minutes):
Asparagus spears (sprinkled with olive oil, Himalayan salt, garlic powder, freshly ground black pepper)
Spices: Pink Himalayan salt (freshly ground), black peppercorn (freshly ground), garlic, lime, lime rind, olive oil (extra virgin).
On the plate:
Goat cheese (or your favorite soft cheese): slice fresh
Tomato basil bread slice (courtesy Panera bread, you can also make your own)
In the glass:
Ice cubes (based on preference).
So, the next time you’re in the grocery, fill your cart with fresh produce, herbs, and spices, and bring them together for a quick, tasty, and healthy meal for yourself and those you care for! And…give a thought to where your food comes from and your own thoughts and feelings as you prepare and eat your food–our food is a product of the cycle of life as much as we are.
