Rosh Hashanah Meal

It’s the jewish holiday.. and we went to the airport to pick up Mike’s kids from the airport. I juiced Carrot, Celery juice for the mid-morning, and just finished my mid-afternoon Carrot, Apple juice.

After we picked up the kids… it was noon time and we decided to go to the Cheesecake Factory. I packed a couple Nectarines just in case, but I spoke with my girl friend and she assured me it’s O.K. to start eating real food for lunch.

So for lunch, I went outside of the fruit box and I had a Beet Salad and Water. It was really filling! I did use just a little bit of the dressing it comes with and I took the Goat Cheese off the salad and gave it to Mike. He loved that!!!

Back at the house we’re preparing foods like Dates, Pomegranate, Apples, Honey, Read Beans, Boiled Pumkin, Beets, Scallions, and Lettuce for the Seder. The Seder foods are all raw, so that’s not bad, but then for the meal afterwards we’ve(by we’ve I mean Mike) prepared Basmatti Rice, Gormazabze(?), Pollo Horeshed(?).

I however, am going to have Asparagus Salad with a Almond, Date, Sunflower dressing and a Tomatoe, Cucumeber Salad with last nights left over Pecan Loaf! I’ve very excited to start this chapter of the meal… eating real/raw foods for lunch.!!!

Creating New Meals

I could not get enough of this evenings… Pecan Loaf.!!! It’s amazing! It had of course Basmatti Rice, Pecans, Tomotoe, Celery Onion and Whole Grain Bread Crumbs into the oven at 450 degrees. It’s really amazing.
The recipe called for Homemade Ketchup poured on the top and then back into the oven for about 15 minutes. I didn’t pre-make the Ketchup… and the Pecan Loaf was great. I paired that with last nights Garden Salad and some Cucumber Salada with Tomoto, Avocado, Onion, Bell Peppers and a Lemon/Grapeseed Oil Dressing.
I followed my juicing with a Carrot, Beet Juice for the mid-morning and then a Carrot, Celery Juice for mid-afternoon. I did break down again and snack on Almonds and Dates before dinner.
But amazingly, once I realized it’s not so demanding and critical to be on this eating plan, I’ve been opening the cookbook and just pointing to a meal to make. It’s becoming much more enjoyable. 🙂
