My Spiroolie came yesterday!!!

I was out of town whe Joy called to tell me my latest toy arrived!  My Spiroolie…now made by a different company and called a Turning slicer.  Can’t wait to try it tonight for dinner.  Keeping it simple, me thinks it will be zucchini noodles with a grain of some type.  I tried a web search to find a few recipes.  Surprise…none came up but a shrimp recipe? Sadly, the last food I will eat is shrimp after the BP oil spill in our Gulf of Mexico.

Sooo…I am looking for any suggestions on how to spice up the veggies.  Do I steam them or fry them up in coconut oil?  A bit of help would be great. I would like to do something different than put spaghetti sauce on them….

Thanks in advance…

Life is incredibly busy and complicated right now.  Not in a bad way.  So many open doors to look in and work with;  Plans to be made, decisions to be made, staying grounded through meditation and prayer, appreciating the wonders and gifts that being alive has to offer (at least being able to appreciate what I have and not focus on what I do not have….geez…who’d a thought that could bring so much contentment…).

Best to you all today…


Mango Cilantro Smoothie….yum!

Good Morning…Life has been challenging me to focus on other things of late.  I barely have time to read all your blog entries….I am and continue to enjoy them.  Here is a recipe I came across.  I was wondering what to do with that coconut water in the freeze…now I now.

Be well everyone…..Jim


Mango Cilantro Smoothie (Vegan, Gluten-free, Refined Sugar-free, Raw)

This smoothie is a little sweet, a little savoury with a definite kick. Perfect for hot summer days, or even cool summer nights.

  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1 cup cucumber (quartered and sliced)
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp coconut water (or more to desired consistency, could also use plain water)
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 1 tsp fresh chopped ginger
  • 1 tsp agave (might need a little more if you are using water)
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • pinch sea salt

Throw it all into a smoothie and blend. Serve with a cucumber slice for a cocktail feel!
