Mountain View and Raw Collard Greens

Look at my views

Enjoying the beauty of the North Carolina mountains once again and it feels wonderful! Traveling is easy, if you eat raw, with just a little bit of planning. Of course packing the blender is essential so green smoothies can be enjoyed every morning.
 Stocking up on fresh produce once you reach your destination is a must. I knew that this trip was going to include Storm's fantastic recipe for raw vegan collards so I made sure that I printed out the recipe. The thought of heading for the hills of North Carolina made this recipe so relevent!!! I found the most amazing organic collard greens at the local grocery store (thinking-- how could I not!!) and also some Heirloom tomatoes; not to mention sweet white onions, so well known in the South. A little pre-planning (soaking and grinding my cashews into flour at home) made this a snap to put together once we reached our destination. I enjoyed this amazing raw recipe for lunch and dinner on two different days.
Check out Storm's recipe here.
I skipped his step of letting the greens sit in the sun and instead ate my greens in the sun :)
I watched our oldest two build a fire and ate my raw greens sitting on the brown grassy hill as the younger three rolled around in the leaves; it was pure bliss.

+JMJ+ Today I am grateful for a stupendous view on top of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
