I got this book of Raw recipes and oh my they had me drooling.
Rawmazing: Over 130 Simple Raw Recipes for Radiant Health by Susan Powers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read this book in one night. I am drooling over these recipes and what a difference great pictures make in a cookbook (compared to my other RAW cookbook that has no images). I can't decide what to try first.
The author has included helpful tips for choosing the right equipment and tools. In addition to this she also gives hints on sprouting seeds, dehydrating foods etc. There is great variety including recipes for each meal of the day e.g breakfast, dinner, drinks, salads, snacks and the desserts, oh my the desserts amazingly gorgeous and yummy (well visually).

Today I had scrambled eggs (organic) with some zucchini (from farmers market), mushrooms (Trader Joe's) and shallots. It was super yummy.
Sauteed lightly (to retain semi-rawness of the veggies) with Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil.
In depth review and giveaway to come. You can taste the unique flavor of coconut with tis oil a big difference from extra virgin olive oil.
Finished off with some vine ripen tomatoes and a glass of natural orange juice. It was very filling.

I also had this Flax Oat Bran Whole Wheat Pita Bread (not as good as the TJ Flatbread) it breaks apart too easily and is very dry.
Spread with your favorite hummus.
So adding these deleicious cured meats may not be 'healthy' but is was so good. Viva la pork!!!!!!!! I try to have cured meats once in awhile (maybe once every 2-3 months).
Add everything else but not too much, too much filling will make if difficult to fold and very messy.
Viola!!!! TheTJ's Middle Eastern flour flatbread was very good and I included a cucumber on the side.

I don't really cook that much, I actually do not like to eat (I try to eat just enough so that I donot feel sick). Although I am very picky, I do like most foods. I tend to stretch out my meals splitting one meal over a few days. Believe me you could not tell by looking at me how little I actually eat. But one thing I love eggs and I only eat whole eggs scrambled, hard boiled eggs (whites only), fried egg whites or fired eggs with runny yolks and now baked eggs.
So I decided to try Barefoot Contessa's French Baked eggs.
This is my second trial (see the first at the end of the post)
I used two jumbo eggs in a deeper dish (I most find the dish Ina used). Added 1tsp milk and salt/pepper baked in a preheated oven at 425 for 12 minutes. The recipe says to use the broiler but my apartment has a cheap stove hence a horrible broiler. I think it is best to use large eggs instead of jumbos. Have toast everything prepared before time is up, eggs will still be hot and cooking. The longer you take the harder/more cooked they will become.
Eggy Goodness!!!!!! added some real bacon bits, hot sauce and cheese. Words cannot describe how good and comforting this is :)
This was trial #1 - so many things went wrong: used the broiler, added cheese before baking and too much, dish was too small. But it made really good scrambled eggs (I just used a fork to mix it up since it was really hot)

I am still alive and have been a postdoc for 1year, 8 months and some day, hours, minutes and seconds.
My lack of updates may be an indication that I am no longer interested in science, well at least academic research. I still like science, bench work, problem solving etc. What I don't like in general, is the bullying, politics, dishonesty, backstabbing, grant writing, begging, hypocrisy, unethical people, abuse, minimum-wage-stipend where I'll have to be a postdoc for 2 more years before I make $40,000 (before taxes mind you) and being one of the educated poor even a tech, peeps at McDonalds make more than I do.
I can tolerate all the things if a real salary + real benefits was attached. But until then I need to pay my rent so I will go to work each day with a smile and at least be grateful I have a job to go to.
All in all I may or may not continue this blog or I may change tone (I've done that before) which I may actually update more often. So stay tuned if you're interested :)
Enjoy the rest of the SUMMER!!!!
