Our neighbor James makes the best organic vegan foods and sometimes brings us little tastings of his desserts he sells in his foodtruck The Green Radish (NYC & Montclair, N). These above creations are his Donarts (half-doughnut half-tart masterpiece). It's a pastry that looks like a tart and tastes like a doughnut. Yum! Also his latest dessert, the Raw Chocolate Brownie made with walnuts, dates, cacao and hemp seeds is so good!
My summer favorite is... the rhubarb. It is super easy to grow and requires minimal care. One cup of rhubarb provides you with almost half of the recommended daily value in vitamin K(healthy bone growth and can limit neuronal damage in the brain, even to the point of Alzheimer's prevention). It contains infection-fighter vitamin C, vitamin A (powerful antioxidant for good skin and vision), folate, riboflavin, niacin, B-vitamins, and pantothenic acid. It also includes tons of manganese, along with iron, potassium, and phosphorus. One cup of cooked rhubarb contains just as much calcium as milk, and it's actually much better for you. Try this Rhubard Salad recipe.
Whenever you are around other people, you are exposing yourself to their subtle energies. Most of the time, these energies are positive, and will therefore have a positive, or perhaps even beneficial, effect on your own energies. However, there are times when bad energies, such as negative thoughts and emotions, can be toxic to your own. Stones and crystals can be used to protect the aura from any harm that can come as a result of these negative energies. I have this big crystal that my spiritual mentor gave me some years ago and I keep it at my desk at home and it also travels with me.
I bought this little dry eraser board to plan my life one month at a time. It's helpful to keep it somewhere I can see it easily so I can stay on track. I write down my work shifts, things to do, blog posts, events I want to attend, deadlines and birthdays.
I love succulents and got these two beauties little while ago. I might need to get a whole succulent garden now.
