mangoes_05.26.10.jpgThe past several days I’ve been on a green kick (of the vegetable variety) and so you’ll find garden greens sprouting up in a variety of my dishes. I love experimenting in the kitchen. It’s so much fun coming up with a new recipes that’s not only delicious too eat but is healthy too.

A few years ago I created this recipe and published it on my foodie blog. I decided to repost the actual raw vegan recipe here. My daughters been craving mangoes and so I think I’ll be picking up a few from the store and recreating this recipe later this week The first time I made this dish, my daughter gobbled everything. I was able to get about a tablespoon. I guess it was good stuff, right?

Constant Craving: Green Leafy Vegetables

As I mentioned at the beginning… lately, I’ve been on a ‘greens kick’. Eating greens hasn’t really been an issue for myself, since they’ve always been a part of my lifestyle. At one point, I do remember I wasn’t too fond of kale, however introducing it slowly into dishes I loved gradually changed my taste for them and I grew to enjoy eating them.

Kale, now has a prominent spot in my garden. Perhaps later today I’ll include a green smoothie recipe. It’s healthy and sweet even if a few of the ingredients are greens (kale & collards.) The greens doesn’t alter the yummy goodness of the smoothie and is a welcome addition to the sugary drinks that have no nutritional benefit.

k.d. lang: Constant Craving

I’ve always enjoyed listening to k.d. Lang. She has a beautiful voice. Watching her interviews, she has always come across as extremely approachable and very comfortable with herself. I’ve always liked that. Although their are many songs I enjoy by her, I decided to include one of the first songs I heard by her. Enjoy!

Lyrics
Constant Craving
by kd lang

Even through the darkest phase
Be it thick or thin
Always someone marches brave
Here beneath my skin

Constant craving
Has always been

Maybe a great magnet pulls
All souls towards truth
Or maybe it is life itself
That feeds wisdom
To its youth

Constant craving
Has always been

Craving
Ah ha
Constant craving
Has always been

Constant craving
Has always been
Constant craving
Has always been

Craving
Ah ha
Constant craving
Has always been
Has always been
Has always been
Has always been
Has always been
Has always been
