So happy for greens!
Going to come out with some recipes soon. Eating things one at a time's been nice though.
Picked a TON of pine nuts and Almonds. Got a huge stockpile now. Got the sabres (cactus fruit, prickly pear) in the fridge. So nice in this weather!
In an hour I picked and shelled over a pound of almonds (pound - unshelled)
It's been nice picking leafy greens. Developing a relationship with them - realizing I want to be gentle with the plant so that it keeps growing bigger and bigger. Being careful not to uproot plants and happily planting seeds when I can. And chewing thoroughly
I really recommend eating the malva sylvestris or purslane if you want to lose weight.
They are incredibly filling. Not that tasty so far alone, but who cares I get my ecstasy from breathing I don't need a flavor explosion.
The thistles are very nice though!
Much of what I've found here in Israel can be found in much of Califonia - cactus fruit, cactus pads, purslane, malva sylvestris, thistle, pine nuts - all can be found there
Its funny how simple it feels. It's not like I go to the store here and feel like I want anything. No cravings for food or anything. I feel completely provided for. That the universe provides!
I realize that some of the food I'm eating is cultivated, but I feel I'd make it in the desert. I eat cactus! It's good for me! And it keeps so well take a bite and it has lots of juice, but it seals so fast!
It feels fantastic walking around here. So open and nice. living in a place designed for people not cars and traffic.
So funny that I can still overeat foraging! Still gotta realize the motivation! It's funny how we can be aware of more positive states we can access but sometimes forget about them.
That's why I like to remind myself I can do better than this and why I avoid labeling myself.
Like the way I eat but tired of just reading about it? Go out and do it! check out wwoof.org if you want a truly amazing experience. Try living in Costa Rica and see how wonderful it is to live in a providing environment.
