Sun Warrior Coupon Code

Saturday, August 30th, 2008

If you haven’t yet tried the new raw vegan protein in town, now’s a great time to give it a shot. That’s because I was chatting with Brent by email this evening… and he gave me the thumbs up to offer you this really great discount.

UPDATE (Aug 2009): New coupon code for 10% off!

Note: I don’t know how long this will work (he wouldn’t tell me), so if you come across this post some months in the future, you might as well try, but no guarantee. As with the other coupon codes I come across, I’ll try to keep the sidebar updated.

Zucchini Pasta

Friday, August 15th, 2008

Had a nice visit with my little sister (only by a year and a half) and her husband Monday evening. She was on a whirlwind tour up from North Carolina and—as so often is the case—my advance notice was minimal.

Nevertheless, even on a “school” night (I still call it that; makes me feel younger), I met them at my Mom and stepdad’s, about 50 minutes away, for dinner. Anything for my sis. And, it’d been a while since I’d seen Mom and Al too, so I was really excited.

Of course, I brought my own food; it’s easier for everyone that way. But Mom hooked me up with some corn on the cob and tomatoes too, both from local growers. The corn was seriously the best I’ve had all season!

The rest of my meal:

That’s zucchini pasta, made with a Saladacco, topped with broccoli, carrots, sweet vidalia onions and garlic. On the right, hiding under the onions, a big chicory salad.

What’s the sauce, you ask? Pureed kidney beans, onions, and cumin. “Thought you weren’t eating cooked food,” my sister inquired. “Surprise!” I replied. ;) As has been calculated here on the blog, I’m about 80% raw by calories. No apologies. Legumes are your friends.

I think I surprised her too when she asked if I knew how many calories were on my, literally overflowing, plate. Let’s see… 45 for the broc, 30 for the carrot, 30 for the zucchini, 175 for the beans, etc..

Anyway, it obviously wasn’t all food talk, and it was great catching up with the family. I expected to be tired upon getting home. Instead, I caught a second wind from the sheer joy of our impromptu gathering and enjoyed a green smoothie as dessert to cap off the evening.

Raw For 30 Days

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

Just a quick lunchtime post. In the next one, later today or tomorrow, I’ll share about my sister’s recent visit.

The documentary, once called Raw For 30 Days, is now available, under a new title, Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days. It looks like a powerful film following on the coattails of the challenge-style documentary made famous by Morgan Spurlock’s Supersize Me.

The same crew responsible for Simply Raw also offer what they’re calling the “Ultimate Encyclopedia of The Raw Food Lifestyle,” a two-disc DVD set entitled Raw For Life. If you get them both as a package, the savings are decent, but I haven’t yet ponied up the cash. If anyone’s watched these, please let us know what you thought.

Speaking of the 30-day challenge theme, I watched the humorous Super High Me a few weeks ago. Funny movie! But also with serious political and cognitive liberty messages. The closing scene was especially poignant.
