Green Pudding for Breakfast?
In some circles, green smoothies are being touted as the ultimate health food. Crop circles? No, no.
I have been enjoying our new high speed blender. As I don’t care for drinking my food, I make a thicker mixture, more a pudding than a smoothie. Kale for breakfast? Spinach? Chard? Collard greens? When it’s blended with fruit, seeds, milk, the taste is completely different from sautéed in butter. However if the church were vegan, then I would be thrown out as a heretic for I incorporate milk and yoghurt in my mixture, albeit raw and live.
Recipe: The night before put ¼ cup buckwheat groats to soak in water, along with 8-10 almonds. Next morning drain and rinse well. Put in blender. Add 1 tablespoon flaxseed, 1 tablespoon sunflower seed, ½ banana, an apple (cored), 1 cup greens, about 1 cup milk, some cinnamon or nutmeg. Blend. This is surprisingly good. It provides around 550 calories and a good third of the day’s nutritional needs (40% of the protein).
This is not the special from the diner—eggs, home fries, sausage, toast with butter and jelly.
This is not what we get at a hotel in France—baguette, croissant.
This is not what we had when I was a child—oatmeal or cold cereal or poached eggs and toast.
Preconceived notions of what constitutes breakfast?
How many other areas of our lives are governed by our cultural prejudices? Can we free ourselves from them, becoming decultured? This is not the same as uncultured. It is more a rising above or a going beyond tradition and culture. Not one of our cultures can be considered ideal. No where have we created the perfect society. And yet we have that possibility. If we apply love and forgiveness, seek to make peace all around, use our creativity for Good, develop our heart’s intelligence in addition to our brains, we can create a world where all can flourish. A greening of humanity through a recreating of our self. We can change what is on the menu of human destiny.
“It is indeed very difficult to imagine, from the dark tunnels where we still live, what a changed world (28/7), a world without culture is going to be, but it emerges from The Revelation of Arès that it is going to be a process of diversifying in free harmony, but no mere evolution in the harness of a new culture.” http://www.freesoulblog.net/zjHu.html
