Now for some dressing!
Orange Persimmon Dressing-Fat Free
by Elizabeth @rawlivingandlearning.blogspot.com

1 orange Fuyi Persimmon, peeled and diced
juice of 1 orange
2 T chopped sweet onion
3 fresh sage leaves, rough chop
Blend in a small blender until smooth.


I made a second version of this plate by adding some sprouted mung beans and 1 chopped pear.


Meal #3 Leftover Raw Banana Kream Pie from yesterday--Seriously!


I want to be a bearer of light; something I struggle with almost daily. I get so wrapped up in just functioning and trying to keep up with everything that I lose sight of what is the most important.
Here is a beautiful meditation as we enter the last week of Advent in preparation for Christmas to begin.
+JMJ+ Today I am grateful for reminders like these, that get my mind back on track.

"Jesus so beautifully describes a Christian as “a burning and shining lamp.” As the calendar approaches the year's darkest night, reflect on those who have brought you light. How have you yourself brought a glimmer of light into someone else's darkness?"

Mmmm I love persimmons! I'll have to try them in salad dressing. And any combo of vanilla, mango, and banana usually make it into my smoothie :)

Banana Cream Pie Smoothie Lately I've been blessed with fresh, green, Florida coconuts from my neighbor's trees. We enjoy drinking...
