Glory, glory, hallelujah! A 3-Day Juice Cleanse

Screen shot 2014-07-14 at 10.06.05 AM

I’m not much a sweets person, but this dry and cold weather lately has me craving some stick-to-your-ribs hot cereal to warm my belly.

The markets are bursting with barrels full of fall and winter squashes. Yellow, green, orange – they seem to mimic the trees as they embark into hibernation. It’s also apple season and here in British Columbia we are blessed with so many apple varieties!

As the days get shorter, I am craving more and more warm, hearty stews to soothe my soul and fill my belly.

Raw Ratatouille with yellow tomato puree

I was so pleasantly surprised on how fresh and flavourful this Raw Ratatouille turned out! Between my Sole Food Farm share and the community garden plot, and with Jay out of town, I had more tomatoes than I knew what to do with. I froze a bunch to make sauce later this year, and still had Continue Reading …
