Light Eating for Survival Blog Project

"Light Eating for Survival" Blog Project a la the movie Julie & Julia.
1 Year. 481 Recipes. 1 ambitious mama.
Days 8, 9, 10, and 11.

I kept my focus on the simplest recipes in the book this time. They are luscious and delicious.

Banana and Grapes
...enough said!
Garlic Dressing
3 cups olive oil
5 sliced garlic cloves
1 tablespoon kelp
1/2 cup chopped parsley
Blend, and enjoy!

Fruit Muesli
3 cups fresh, cut up, juicy fruit (bananas, apples, strawberries, peaches, etc.)
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup currants or raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts
This should be juicy. If not add 1 tablespoon water or fruit juice. Allow everything to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
This is fantastic. I'm going to add the raisins next time. It's just so fruity, juicy, and filling. Kid-friendly too!

Hot n' Spicy
6 oz. apple juice or cider
pinch of cinnamon
slice of orange
Heat everything in a small pot until hot to the touch. Enjoy. Warm apple juice and cinnamon on a cold day.... This is like a warm blanket. Very comforting and soothing.
Russian Dressing
1 cup tomatoes
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 lemon juice
1 chopped green onion
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoon tamari (I used Bragg's Liquid Aminos)
1 tsp. paprika
1 chopped garlic clove
1 tsp. horseradish (opt.)
This kind of taste like French Dressing, with a kick. It's quite good. Try it and let me know what you think.
Coming up next: A review of The Vegan Soul Food Guide to the Galaxy!

I finally got to see Julia and Julie last night, Althea. It was doubly sweet because of your terrific blog on my book, and because I had met Julia and her husband when we both appeared on a live television show in NYC.

Meryl Streep has done an amazingly accurate portrayal of one of the most gracious and unpretentious of people, whom absolutely adored all kinds of foods and cooking, and kindly requested a copy of Light Eating For Survival.
