Yesterday was bad!!!  I ate way too much food. For lunch I had a hearty helping of my Fresh Vegetable Salad and another hearty helping of Mike’s Asha Reshteh.

Asha Reshteh Ugh!! I was so bloated after that meal, after which I vowed I wasn’t going to eat anything for dinner.

But as luck would have it, Mike made a dish with Okra, Brussels Sprouts, Zucchini and Eggplant. He actually tossed all the vegetables in flour and put it on the Coleman Grill he has.

Cut up the vegetables and wash, blot with paper towel and roll into a cup of flour. Fry in a pan/grill with Olive Oil until tender. 

Red Bell Pepper SaladThen he finely chopped up some Red Bell Peppers and Orange Bell Peppers with Cucumber for a Salad. He added an Oil and Lemon Dressing to it. And then I added some Avocado and Paprika, Cumin, Celtic Salt, and Dried Onions to the Dressing mix.

I ate a much smaller amount of  THIS food… which was really good. But I was ultimately thinking about lunch and how much I had eaten.

Then to make matters worse, I didn’t work out last night. Because I had soo much food, I felt really tired and couldn’t bring myself to it.

Looking Down On Golden

Lariat Trail In Golden, CO

Driving Up Lariat Trail

Started the day brisk… with some errands to run before we headed over to my brothers place. But first, we went to downtown Golden, and stopped into Starbucks for my Pumpkin Spiced Iced Coffee with Soy. From there we headed to Lariat Trail, which is part of my old stomping grounds. We used to drive up the mountain, overlooking the City of Golden and party, neck, etc. as teenagers. It was beautiful again to see it.!

After a quick stroll down memory lane, we headed to Steve’s for Thanksgiving Dinner which was schedualed for 1pm. I still had to make my Sweet Potatoe Delight and Cucumber Delight and a Green Salad meal additions. My sister in law was very encouraging about me making my raw food additions to the meal. She understands the decision to go raw, because her sister is a vegan and her sister in law is also a vegan.

Sweet Potatoe Delight:
4Sweet Potatoes
1Green Apple
2Tbls Unsweetened Honey
1/4CupsOrganic Raisins
1/4CupsOrganic Cranberrys
1CupFresh Orange Juice

Chop Sweet Potatoes, Apple and sprinkle Raisins, Cranberrys, Honey over dish and pour Orange Juice over the entire thing and place in oven at 350 degrees for an hour or until Potatoes are tender.

Cucumber Delight:
4Green Onions
1/4Tspn Dill Weed
1/2Cup Olive Oil
Celtic Salt

Peel Cucumbers, Cut Cucmbers in half, then cut in half again and scoop out the insides. Place the insides of Cucumber in bowl with chopped up Celery, Green Onions, Carrots, Dill Weed and Oil. Mix and spoon into the Cucumber tubs and refrigerate before serving.

Green Salad:
Mixed Greens
Red & Orange Bell Peppers
Green Onions
Dried Cranberrys

So once I finished my new additions to the Thanksgiving Day Meal, we sat down to eat, because I was running tight on time, and so, I didn’t have a chance to take my Barley Max, or Drink my Carrot Juice.
I had to try a slice of Turkey, scoop of Mashed Potatoes, Stuffing along with my delights. Unfortunately, my Sweet Potatoe Delight wasn’t ready in time, so we snacked on that later.! And of course for dessert, we had a slice of Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Pie with Homemade Whipped Cream. So sinful, I forced myself to go for a walk on the mesa, behind there house. I invited the kids and my sister in law for a walk and when we got back, nothing more was put into my mouth.. until the next day.
