I have been slowly trying to purchase more organic groceries over the past year. We started eating organic meat over a year ago, starting only with K first. It is expensive and we never thought we would be able to afford it ourselves. However as we tried to eat healthier over time, we found that our grocery budget was able to accommodate healthier and organic foods more.
This is mainly because we eliminated the other junk and eating out from our diet. As we become more conscious of our grocery bill and consumption we also wasted less.
Now almost 2 years in to a diet and lifestyle change we eat only organic meat at home. Our produce is organic too. Our diet is slowly changing as we try to do less grains. K can't resist gluten and we just cannot eat breads in front of him, so we slowly just stopped eating them!
Recently I watched this video of a doctor who cured her Multiple Sclerosis using a diet composed of mostly raw foods.
We are biryani eating people of South East Asia. We cook all our vegetables. To us salads are cucumbers and tomatoes, and sometimes spinach. I have been trying Kale for a few months but just crush raw Kale in smoothies. I know you shouldn't cook leafy greens and I cannot bring myself to eat the tough leaves raw.
So a raw food diet is like alien world for us.
But we also have health issues, like autism and ataxia in our home. Watching that video was very inspirational and my husband (who does not always like our organic food bill) went out and bought some sea weed of all things.
I have no idea what to do with Kelp. We tried cooking it, it was so chewy and salty. We tried frying it and it became salty chips. Fascinating. I read you can make broth out of it.
Anyway, he decided to create this concoction of power foods. My husband cannot cook to save his life. When he makes something it is usually everything mixed together and ground in to powder form ready to just drink in a glass of water!
So he ground boiled chicken, raw beets, raw kale, raw carrots, cooked sea weed and some other stuff (I think onions?) in to this power powder :D
It actually wasn't bad. I mixed it in my pasta with some olive oil and mayo. Quite yummy I must say. K at some in his rice pasta. We made sandwich spread out of it.
Here are some photos of my husband doing his thing. For someone who is utterly useless in the kitchen, I think he did great!
Well done Kelp Man.
