Have been resting a lot as my sight really isnt upto much, Got enough rest to allow a short while on the pc with sunglasses/eyepatch. I love blogging, so its worth a bit of sleep beforehand to be able to post and have a little look at other lovely blogs!
On my travels to pick up water and more sesame seeds on sale I noticed my little wholefoods place offering Raw museli mix in a brown paper bag..oh my!!.. I bought some to try..its buckwheat, oat groats, dates and cacao nibs.. will try it-- I think I can probably make my own a lot cheaper/fresher. I normally dont go for cereal type things, even raw/gluten free, but I shall give it a go!! May be a nice snack post workout or something!
This last week I have found a new member of staff a bit perplexed by my foods-- Seeing a large container of pinapple and blueberries on my desk commented "Isnt that pricey?" "Wouldnt it be cheaper to eat chips?"-- I replied, eating chips left me in bed unable to work-- eating fresh foods keeps me working, happy, blissful and chilled-- Which would you choose? Optimal health or meals for 99p.. I know which I go for every single time!!
I have all sorts of fresh fruit in at the moment, pinapple, loads of berries, banana's--err 4 bunches! as well as a sack full of greens. Hanging onto two ripe mango's at the moment, I hope they dont go bad, going to dice and slice them in the morning--may pop them into the deep freeze.
I have cravings for greens about once a month or so, so I am going to enjoy them as a snack. Romaine with hemp seeds I find the best meal ever!! Got some lovely chinese greens, so will be eating those lots this week.
Sesame seeds have been on offer in my local health store, so I have bought plenty. With the intention of making milk as well as yoghurt in the week-- quick and easy dinner with loads of berries. Take advantage of those offers or bulk buys!!
Today I tried out making the cheese from sesame seeds
Basically soaked 1 cup for 8 hours
Blended with as little water as possible--dash of sea salt- not even a teaspoon
This is a thick mixture, poured onto muslin
Tied this up (with a new hairband) -- hung this overnight, squeesed it to help it along then left it to drip out slowly.
In the morning untied, and voila! Going to give it a few more hours, roll it in chopped herbs and pop it to chill. You can buy vegetarian cheese making rennets or things to help it ferment-- I think this way has come out just great!!
Here it is, after soaking, being poured, hung and finally this morning!
Thought this would be nice as a treat with some greens, really easy.
More a bit later....
