Brown leather corset and mini melons non-mercial

A general rule for health is to not eat anything that has a commercial.
Yes to that.
But what about the unsung, non-commercial,non-profitable,humble,cheap heroes of the killer nutrition,who deserve major exposure.?Oh, the unjustice!
So I am trying to right this wrong and  counterstriking by doing my own non-marketable food ”com-mercial”.Make that non-mercial.
One or 2 melons at the time.

M

Mini melons and me

Here is a food that you won’t see on the big screens during a Superbowl.
The watermelon.
Watermelons are full of Water(Duh!).Dietary Fiber,.Niacin. Vitamin B6 and folate.Vitamin A.Vitamin C. Potassium.Low in calories,easily digestible.
All in all, an easybreazy fruit.
Great as a juice,blended, or on it’s on.Simply a cleansing King.One of my favorite fruits to use during cleanses.

M

Mini melons

I always eat it alone or blended with mint leaves.I rather blend,than juice, so I preserve the precious fiber.
And remember:
Always eat watermelon or watermelon drinks on an empty stomach.

M

Mini melons and me

Feel free to send your favorite,simple,cheap (as in cost,not value!!natural,real food or non-food non-mercials.
Because the best things in life are free and have no commercial.

P.s.Have you ever seen such a small melons?

Tomato versus cheese or what is nuttier

Every time I walk down the street eating a raw tomato,cucumber or a raw pepper, people look at me like I’m nuts!
I’m sorry, but since when eating a natural food in public is passe?! What’s unnatural, is that you  are drinking  a coke.Or Red bull.Or eating a cheese.Straight from the block..

The world we live in

The world we live in

How sad is  that nobody even blinks an eye  at that sight.Like it’s the most natural thing to sit next to somebody eating  cheese from the block ,but not a tomato?

So WTF dude?
Double standarts much?
And who is nuts?
Or nuttier?

Whats in my fridge or easybreazy raw food planning

As a raw foodist–just-do-my-best-and -not-obsessed-clean-real food-healthy-eater at any given time …
I have …

R

Raw foodist fridge

My main food during the day is raw,healthy green creations link here http://wp.me/p2iumO-4Z and vegetable health bomb juice link here http://wp.me/p2iumO-3G, so that takes a lot of produce to produce.Thus the greenery galore in my fridges.I have 1 big-see above and 2 small fridges see below.For dinner I might eat some raw fish-ceviche, or cooked quinoa,amarant,or millet with broccoli and mushrooms.I don’t like meat,but few times a year I might  have some barbecue chicken or fish.But the main of my diet year round is greenery,fruits,vegetable,nuts and seeds.And dark chocolate.

R

Two fridges to keep fruit and vegetables

This is my secondary fridges and fruit ”dungeon”.Basically a dark,kinda dry little storage place in my house.

R

Raw food fridge

I restock my fridges once a week for the perishables greenery, and the rest -apples,bananas,peaches,kiwis) I buy in bulk, so it last a month or so (for 2 people)

T

Raw food fridge

My second top fridge in my food dungeon.

Raw food fridge

Little tomatoes on the vine,cucumbers,oranges.

F

Fruits freezer

I can’t leave without my 3 freezers,since they save me a lot of time and money and store my bulk deals.Usially cut up mangoes,persimmons,strawberries,bananas,even pears.

Food dungeon

Food dungeon

And yeah.Even with all these fridges,I still end up storing some bulk deals in my plastic containers in my fruit dungeon.

P

Purslane storage

A resent A-ha! moment-My favorite greenery purslane usually last no more than 3 days in my plastic containers in the fridge,but this  crate has the magic , so I have been keeping this produce for the last 7 days, and it’s still green and not soggy.It must be the right amount of holes on the crate.Or something.Bulk buy greenery tip-use a create with holes, not a closed up container to store your big quantities of green.

Sweet kiwis

Sweet kiwis

Another tip.Best way to soften hard kiwis is at room temperature, in a big bowls.

To sum it up:
Have a lot of fresh,green produce.
Keep it in the right temperature and place.
Invest in few fridges.
And don’t be afraid to create a lot of garbage.

Raw foodist garbage

Raw foodist garbage

Because real food creates bulk when disposed off.It’s a natural thing.
It always amazes me that our garbage bin is overflowing with fruit and vegetables peelings and pulp from the daily juices at the end of the bi-weekly collection period, as opposite of those of the neighbours,whose bin is always not even half full.Well,few pizza boxes,microwave diner boxes and countless candy and bread and processes food wrappers doesn’t take much space…
So Hooray for the full garbage bins!

Reflections with kilt and teddy bear flavor or live manikin werking it

Here is a  style-missile. Ready to shake the sleepy,fleece decked,Adidas tracksuit wearing,fake Chanel and Louis Vuitton caring,Mcdonalds eating,cola drinking Mr.and Mrs.Small town …
Decked in green plaid kilt (I am guessing vintage),green socks,matching shoes and full gorgeous mane of blonde fabulousness,this man almost restored my faith, that even in a small town, there are still  kindred spirits.
A Bloody Individualists, with a unique,all their own sense of style,who doesn’t need a big town to flourish, or validation from the masses to be crowned fashionable,hip and popular.

Reflection with a kilt and teddy bear flavor

Reflection with a kilt and teddy bear flavor

During our city walk,we spotted this vision on a window of a local eaterie, trying to sort these teddy bears in order.(May be the owner,may be a window dresser.)Fascinated with his style and personae, we begged him for a pic, and he readily agreed..

Some models could really learn a thing or two about being natural  and camera-ready at a split millisecond.
Ready,steady,go…Just like that.

Window reflections with a taste of kilt and toys

Window manikin with a kilt and attitude

And I love how from every angle, you see and notice different things about him, the street and the environment.A every second changing,dynamic blend of ordinary and fascinating.
Window manikin.Style-missile.
Attitude and kilt wearer.
”Age-what age?” and ”what are you looking at” messenger…
When you got it, you got it.

Aerial in the city or The daily ”make my day”

I was just aimlessly wandering around the city, when that happened.

Aerial in the city

These ”birds” flew in and totally made my all-around boring sun,rain,wind,rain again day.

Aerial in the city

Like a birds in the concrete jungle.

I thought that I was just hanging out, but these french ”birds” are really  hanging out.And up and about.

P

Aerial in the city

Maagic.Magic on a wire.With a french accent.
C’est magnifique.

P.s.What really baffled me was that many people passed, saw this and just went about their day.
Without stopping with be wonderment.
Without light in their eyes.
Without smile.Some even without acknowledgement.
Like they see people hanging from the wires in the sky everyday.!!!!!!!
Really??
How sad.
When did they become so bla and nonchalant and apathetic?
When these gray souls lost their sense of magic?
And joy.
And simple pleasures.
And Joie de vivre.

Pink lady bug outfit with a touch of punk

I don’t know if pink lady bugs exist, but if they do ,that’s how they look in my book.
