i wouldn't say you need the greens for fiber but they contain a whole lot of other essential nutrients. i totally understand that you don't eat it when you're feeling sick. most people (including myself) use their temporary illness as an excuse not to maintain their diet plan and just eat really unhealthy food. you should be really proud of yourself for not doing the same.
Yeah, I know the nutrients are important too. lol.
Thanks! I almost wanted to just go on a fast or only have soup broth, but my husband encouraged me to try to get some food in me. lol.
mmmmmmmmmm... broccoli sprouts are SUPER good for you.
They contain over 1,000 the nutrient content of broccoli itself (I believe)
Sprouts are definitely powerhouses.
But it's probably better to just grow your own.. than buy them, because
of bacterial content and traveling long distances.
Great job girl!
I hope you've had time to rummage thru Angela Stokes website a bit.
Also, where in Washington are you moving to???
I am primarily in Oregon these days, but am usually in Washington
at least once per month, we could have raw vegan potlucks!
I know a number of raw vegans in Washington, and they have a
great networking community in the Seattle area
Yeah, I may see about growing my own broccoli sprouts. Besides, they're not cheap at the store, and only come in small little packets. I'll look into growing some once we get situated up in Washington, though.
I've been through her website a bit. I definitely saved it on my favorites list to return to later, though!
And we'll be moving to Sequim, Washington (which is in the Olympic Penninsula region). My husband just heard from his friend up there, and he claims the nearest co-op is 5 miles away from where we'll be! I was like "Yeah! Great walking distance! I'm game!"
That sounds nice! Yeah, just so you let us get settled in up there first.
lol. Oh, and after we get through our fasting, of course! (We're going to do a short fast down here next month, then a longer fast up there within the first month or two of getting there, as we've been doing some thinking and talking and believe we should definitely do some fasting.)
Ooh, ooh, you do? Wow! It's like we were meant to go there! Wooh! Go, raw vegans! You gonna introduce me to them? lol.
