Vegan Haul Time

Spinach,Romaine,Persian cucumbers,garbanzo beans,unsweetened coconut milk,household cleaner,red split lentils,Carolina gold BBQ sauce,frozen mango,olives,Basmati rice,tofu,bananas and lemons
Kale,cilantro,garlic,onions,avocado,chocolate bar,economy size kombucha(six servings) nag champa incense,Tusli tea, 10 lbs. of potatoes
In addition to this stuff I also got a seven pound bag of cat food. It's about three blocks from the bus stop to my apartment. My shoulders were on fire when I got home!!
Most of the recipes I looked at for Kitchari called for yellow split mung beans, and on Sunday I called everywhere, Natural Grocers, Sprouts, even Whole Foods and no one carries them!! I'm guessing the Asian Market carries them, but it's in the opposite direction as Trader Joe's, and after lugging all this weight home I didn't feel like taking another bus somewhere. So for my kitchari I'm using split red lentils.
The Tulsi tea was on clearance at Natural Grocers for two bucks which is a steal! I was reading up on the health benefits, and there are so many. Tulsi tea is also beneficial for thyroid issues so I am a lucky gal!
I also found this for around the same price as the tea I was going to order, but it's actually cheaper since I don't have to pay for shipping. Shipping costs are so annoying. I was reading a post from a woman who had hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's and she fixed her thyroid and healed the Hashimoto's with no medication, and she swore by ashwagandha root.
This was my delicious dinner last night! First I had a salad with Romaine and Persian cucumber and Peanut vinaigrette from Trader Joe's which is AHMAZING by the way, and then I had kitchari made with Basmati rice, split red lentils, kale and spices like turmeric, cumin and coriander. Topped with cilantro and of course sriracha. It was just what my body needed. And I feel like my shoulders should have been achy today, but I feel great!
Today is day two and so far I'm feeling amazing! I feel great that I'm at least trying to heal myself. In a way I feel lucky that I can't see a doctor, because all they would do is try and pump me full of medicine anyway, which is not what I want. I hope that maybe I can heal myself and be an inspiration for other people to use food as medicine.


  1. I love this post! Your haul looks amazing and so does your meal. I love the idea of healing yourself with food. I remember how amazing I felt after doing the Crazy Sext Diet 21 day cleanse and I often think about doing it again to reset myself. I'm going to give it some more thought once it gets a little warmer and I can stand the idea of a smoothie and raw food :)

    You are doing amazing! I'm so glad that you are feeling good about it. I'm already super inspired!

    1. Thank you so much! I remember I did the Crazy Sexy 21 day diet too and felt really great. I was still smoking cigarettes at the time, so I should do it again and feel really great!
      I'm going to keep trying until I heal myself. If these other women I've read about have done it, I believe I can too. At least I hope!

  2. Your food has always looked awesome but it has looked even more awesome the last few months!!!!! You are totally inspiring me, girl! Woot! Great hauls, too! I need to send you some of my random Tulsi's!

    1. Thank you! I am loving the Tulsi tea. I've never had it before, and it is really delicious and has so many health benefits!!

    2. I'll see if I can go thru my stash and find some more for ya!

    3. Wow, thank you, that would be really awesome!!
