until today, i hadn't been feeling like myself. it's like i'm fighting something. i've been super sleepy and COLD (guess it's just that time of year). on top of that, i've been experiencing uncomfortable heartburn. i battle the best way i know how - with lots of rest and healing foods (and also letting the house go to sh*t.=)
below are some things i've been feeding myself. i've also been taking echinacea, elderberry, raw vitamin d, goldenseal, and drinking warm miso/ginger soup.
(that's oscar, bubbie and evie's cute cat)
salad with mushrooms, chopped date, almond slivers, balsamic vinegar and oil
coconut chia pudding with raspberries
(blended coconut meat, coconut water, chia seeds, irish moss gel and nut milk)
raw pizza crust with a black bean spread
(cooked black beans, raw tahini, nutritional yeast, cayenne, cumin and lemon juice)
so i'm happy to say today i had lots more energy and tackled almost all of the chores. my heartburn symptoms have let up, plus another snowstorm is on its way, which means i get to sleep in tomorrow. hey, it's the little things!=)
my spirits were lifted when i received this lovely postcard from lela in estonia! great timing, i'd say. lela has a pretty blog called touching the sky is easier for birds, where she shares her thoughts, vegan food and postcrossing postcards. lela's photos have inspired me to take a trek in the snow tomorrow with camera in hand.
what's the weather like in your neck of the woods?
