Mid-week rant #1: To all those who post twitter feeds, facebook updates, etc. blaming/complaining to Mother Nature for the "weird weather" we've been getting over the past couple seasons, please stop. It's not her fault that we are thinning out the ozone, polluting, and causing her to go through an early menopause. Let's start taking a little bit of grown-up personal responsibility, 'mkay?
Actually, that's my only rant, but it's certainly been building up for some time... Like I mentioned last time, the weather hasn't been getting any cooler in these parts and my LFRV-ism (now called HCRV, for High Carb Raw Vegan, because apparently the movement is trying to reclaim the bad rep given to the "carb") has certainly been helping. Here are a few breakfast ideas when the weather gets hot and you just need to cool down that internal body temp. I promise it'll work really fast! (Cow cup is not required, but a definite bonus.)
Creamy Orange Juice
3-4 oranges, peeled
2-3 ice cubes
1/4-2/3 C cold water
This makes a super creamy smoothie/juice, especially the less water you use.
I think I've had this every morning for a couple weeks now and I love it.
It's super refreshing, and I seem to be going through an orange-flavoured thing right now.
2 C melon
juice of 1/4 lemon
2-3 ice cubes
1/4-1/2 C water
Same deal: Blend! The less water, the more creamy.
Hmm, those pictures were strangely identical even though I took them on different days, and they aren't even the same thing... Oh well. Other than that, I'm sure my old Watermelon Sensation juice would also do the trick, though I've just been eating about 1/4 of watermelon for breakfeast instead... that or the orange juice, mmmm. Off to study! Enjoy the sun, even if it's just during your lunch break. Get in that Vitamin D while you can!
