Tropical Rice

One of the traditional things to do with the family in the summer time is to have a cookout. There is no need to avoid such get togethers when there are delightful dishes such as this that can be enjoyed by all. This light dish is perfect for those hot summer days. The blend of savory and sweet, but not too sweet, satisfy the taste buds while the addition of papaya adds a tantalizing twist.

Tropical Rice

2 lbs. of Jicima

1/2 cup unsweetened Coconut Flakes

1/4 Pineapple, chopped

1/4 Papaya, chopped

1 Lime, juiced

1″ Ginger, finely graded

1 tsp Himalayan Sea Salt

Peel jicima and chop into large chunks. Add to food processor and pulse until it is a rice consistency. Add lime juice, ginger and salt. Pulse until blended. Place mixture in a large bowl. Add coconut flakes and mix together. Add pineapple and papaya chunks and gently fold in. Enjoy!


Patience with the process

Dear Reader,

I’ve explained a bit about how my raw food story began in an earlier post and in the emotional eating article I recently had published. What I wanted to tell you today is that I didn’t expect from changing the way I eat is the clarity and deep desires of my soul to emerge. Once I worked past some of the harder surface work, amazing things started to happen to my sense of well being. I became content with myself. Or more relaxed if you will. I had finally started to show love and compassion towards myself and allowed myself to heal. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve only been at this for a little over a year and still have a lot of built up junk to work through. It takes time to heal a lifetime of toxic eating and thinking. But, I have learned to be patient with myself and marvel at the process. Thank you for following my blog!
