We received a Vitamix for Hanukkah last month from Mr. Rosenberg's folks. It is amazing and powerful and ginormous. Our kitchen is so small, (say it with me - how small is it?) it looks as if we drove a sports car onto the counter. My friend Karen gave me a nut milk bag (I know. That's what it's called.) and a lovely glass carafe for storing nut milk.
I soaked a cup of almonds overnight and gave the Vitamix a test-drive with the almonds and two cups of water. I mushed the almond pulp/water/stuff through the bag and what came out was a lovely almond milk. I added a little vanilla at the end. This liquid bore almost no taste resemblance to the store-bought almond milk that only has 9% almonds in it. (Mostly water and chemically-stuff in that.) It was a success all around. More will be happening.
What I ate today:
• 2 bananas
• almond milk
• 1 apple
• salad w/ kale, avocado, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, olive oil, nutritional yeast
• green juice w/ kale, spinach, cucumber, apple, lemon, ginger
• salad w/ baby lettuce, herbs, white balsamic vinegar
• carrots and celery
