What I ate today on a low fat vegan diet.
High carb plant based diet.
Namaste Beautiful Yogis,
my morning started with something that I don’t do often but I appreciate it every now and again. Some overnight cold brewed coffee.

Next I had water and LOADS of locally picked loquats.
loquats tree fruit
I picked them the day before and had them for a few days as my breakfast meal. The loquat leaf makes an excellent and healthy tea.
My friend brought some of his Yogi Tea and I had to try it.

Dinner was based on some exotic greens that I picked up at the Hollywood farmers Market. I haven’t had yam greens before and I cannot say enough good things about them. Mild, sweet, crunchy, tender and yummy! They can be prepared the way you would prepare spinach.

I decorated the salad with organic arugula flowers. One of the yummiest flowers out there. They have a strong arugula aroma with a nutty flavor. I couldn’t stop munching on them while preparing dinner.
For dinner I made 2 1/2 huge bowls of salad. The veggies in the salad were lettuce from a friend’s garden, yam leaves, okra greens and red peppers. Arugula flowers on top. Very delicious!!!!!

Okra leaves are very healthy, mild in taste, slightly mucilaginous when raw and great for thickening soups, stews and veggie dishes when cooked. Okra pods and leaves are great for repaying the stomach lining. I actually enjoy okra tea- just boil okra for 2-5 minutes, steep and enjoy! It’s great for ulcers, urinary tract infections, irritable bowel syndrome, liver toxicity, sore throat and much more.

Vegan corn carrot dressing
The dressings/dip is a new favorite of mine – fresh or frozen corn, raw carrots, coconut milk, avocado, optional tofu, aleppo pepper, mint, sage, barberries, spices. Blend in a high speed blender. Done!
These were all the yummies for the day!!!
