I came across an interesting article today called 'Money and the crisis of civilization' by Charles Eisenstein.
What it says in a nutshell is that the collapse of money is coming soon, but that's not as bad as you may think, so stop resisting.

I chose the ingredients for this gazpacho based on the concept of complementary colors (red/green) and effects (hot/cold).
So I threw in my blender a couple things from each of the four categories.
Red/hot: red chili, red onion.
Red/cool: watermelon, tomatoes.
Green/hot: lime juice, parsley (these are not that hot, but they make a great combination with the other stuff).
Green/cool: cucumber, a handful of green leafy vegs.
Serve with sea salt flakes and extra virgin olive oil.

Michael Pollan's food agenda was recently published in NYT. It says we need to put the food system 'back on sunlight'.
- Eat food.
- Not too much.
- Mostly plants.

Beet is in(expensive). Beet is healthy. But ashtonishingly, I haven't ever eaten a raw one. That's going to change today, I decided. But how exactly?
Wake up, little smoothie: a beet, a carrot, a cucumber, an orange, a little piece of ginger, a cup of sprouted quinoa, a couple of handfuls of green leafy vegs, some cold water and salt flakes. My Dualit blender did the job quick and easy.
Hmm, not too sweet, but 'bitter is better' as the saying goes. This stuff sure gives tons of immediate raw energy!
