Today I’m driving up to Santa Monica, I’m excited to get a mini vacation and check out some vegan and raw vegan restaurants in the area. Seems like they have a lot to offer and as someone who hasn’t been able to eat out for months there is a lot I want to try. Although I will be indulging I am going to do my best to stick to the food combining rules I have been following. Since stopping The Body Ecology Diet I have made a lot of exceptions to those rules and I’ve felt bad for it. I came to realize that the aftereffects of making poor food choices for my body last longer than the satisfying my taste buds feeling. I have learned a lot about how my body responds to different food in the past two months and I’m ready to make some lifestyle changes so I feel my best. So one thing I’m doing for my trip is bringing some homemade snacks. I’m bringing some fruit to eat first thing, then I’ll have some chili roasted chickpeas, cauliflower popcorn and some fermented kraut.
These are really good, I’ve made roasted chickpeas before but they didn’t have a nice flavor and I had trouble getting them to get crispy without burning. I followed the recipe except I did roast them on 450 for about 20 minutes and although some look burnt they tasted fine.
I can eat a whole head of cauliflower when I make this.
