The Eagle Has Landed

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
• coffee
• 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


  1. WOW. I am trying to start my diet or become a vegan but it is so hard. I like that you can do it! You motivate others to start eating healthy food. I am glad that we have such experts like you.

  2. Eating at regular times during the day helps burn calories at a faster rate. It also reduces the temptation to snack on foods high in fat and sugar.
