No way can I do one. First, I can't do photos, and even if I could, my food doesn't look nearly as tasty as yours!

Week 8 day 52!!!!
Thanks you guys!!!!
I got up this morning with HUGE amounts of ENERGY!!! I did 60 minutes on the treadmill!!!!! Can you believe that!!!! Had lots of Clementines today... I am so thankful that they are back in season!!! And, I had 2 Apples. I also made Alissa's Veggie Stir Fry today...
Boy, a lot of ingredients here!!! But, I didn't let that scare me away! I got MOST of the ingredients, but some of it I couldn't find. It looks similar looking to Alissa's Kim Chi, but there is no Napa Cabbage in this one and the Marinade is different. Here's how it came out:
(Gotta find the photo to put it back!!!...bear with me!!!!)
The kids didn't like it... But, I think they were expecting it to taste like the SAD version...you KNOW how kids are!!! But I ABSOLUTELY AND POSITIVELY ***LOVED*** IT!!!! Alissa, this is DELICIOUS!!! I did put mine in the Dehydrator for a few hours to warm it a bit, but it's really good!!!
Reminds me of Carmella's version of Chop Suey, which I I love also. But, there is a difference in Alissa's version which is so GOOOD!!!! I really loved the Sweet Potato in it! Wouldn't have ever thought of that!!! I added some Bean Sprouts in mine and Spiralized my Zucchini (like Lo-Mein)... I LOVED THIS ONE, Yau'll!!! TWO THUMBS way UPPPPP!!!
I fixed enough for dinner, so I'll be having that with a Salad I think... Gonna have a Green Smoothie and make the Mango Pie later...I can't wait!!!

This looks DIVINE, Renee! I'm definitely gonna make this, this weekend.
I love your idea of adding bean sprouts and "Lo-Mein." The picture looks so good, I want to reach in and take a bite, or 10, right now.
So glad you're feeling better. :)
P.S. This has become my favorite thread. It's the first one I look for when I log on. I sooooo look forward to your pics and posts.

Week 8 Day 53
Green Woman: Of COURSE you can!!! Hey, meet me at your thread!!!
A1icia: Thank you so much for your kind words!!!
Today I had a bowl of Nuts/Seeds/Raisons/Banana w/Almond Milk for breakfast (sorta a Granola Quickie!!!) and then had a couple of Salads...still sorta gettin' over this "buggg"!!! It keeps lingering a bit...congestion and such...
I went to Whole Foods today and had to get some "staples"...(Nama Shoyu, Ume Plum Vinegar...etc) so that I can make some more Eggplant Bacon. I also got the things I needed to make the Calzone (the Buckwheat is soaking as I'm typing this!!!), but I could only find Buckwheat Groats... Hey Lucy, is that what you use? How long do you let them "sprout" for?
Gonna make this tomorrow:
Mango Pie (Pg 496)
Cucumber Wheels (Pg 300)
Creamy Pea Soup (Pg 357)
Have a RAWsome night!!!

I used "hulled buckwheat" and it sprouted. Do the groats look crushed or do they look like whole seeds? The hulled buckwheat looks whole, sorta like little double pyramids, but quite small.

I had these and they turned to mush when soaked. Hmmmmm buckwheat has to be kernals??? Think I just got some. Didnt label the bag but I think they are what I have soaking.
I am interested to know what yours do Renee
