I haven't been to the Asian market since much earlier in my juice feast, so today I meandered across town to the stinkiest store in Tulsa, Nam Hai. I was pleasantly surprised when I entered because this time my eyes didn't start watering right away. Normally the fish stench is enough to cause an instant gag reflex, but all I noticed was Babel incense, which is a marvelous change. Anyway....I scored big today! I got lemongrass, limes, mint, thai basil, oranges, thai bird peppers, jalapenos, young thai coconuts, cilantro, onions and a variety of unidentifiable leafy greens for $ 24.76. That's a freakin' miracle! I would have spent $84.49 at Whole Foods for this same load. Oh, but I'm probably going to get slowly Napalm poisoned by this stuff....does anybody know if it's safe? I doubt it's organic. Duh.
I've got a little secret. I won't divulge all the dirt, but there is a possibility that I might have a little match maker magic flowing through my veins. I'll just say this.....I know two unbelievably awesome people that are preparing for a spiritually serendipitous meeting on Monday in NYC. One lives in Manhattan and the other in the south of Florida. If you believe in the power of love, could you mutter a little prayer or send a little of your own "bibbidi-bobbidi-boo" that direction this coming Monday? I'm pretty sure that their babies are throwing a tantrum to be born!
Thursday's Daily Juice:
Drank a couple of quarts of Master Cleanse until 3 pm, but I felt great and even got a number of errands done.
1.5 qt. "Indian Green Curry Surprise"....2 stalks of lemongrass, 4 stalks of celery, 3 carrots, 2 jalapeños, 1 small read bell pepper, 3 green onions, 1 small knob of ginger, 1/2 cup fresh basil, 1 large handful of cilantro, juice of 2 limes. Push everything through your juicer then put the juice into your Vita Mix and add the water of one young coconut, 1 tbsp. olive oil (or avocado oil, if you have it!) 1/2 tsp. Indian curry, and raw honey to taste. Blend this for about 20 seconds and enjoy!
