"I can do all things if I just get off my but's and admit I'm in control of me!" SGM 1:1-5 The only real verse I need.

Never say you didn't have enough time: You have the same amount of time that was given to Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Winston Churchill.

Looks yummy! I love raw spinach salad. I make mine with cherry tomatoes and black olives.

I feel that eating a raw, colorful, seasonal & organic when possible meal once a day is the way to go. Here's one of my favorites. I created this for a woman who I cooked for that had Sjogren's disorder. Finely chopped up fresh, raw vegetables worked and it works for me, too, It is good summer food in the oppressively hot weather.

Cool, Raw Spinach Salad

In the food processor, separately:
1. One medium red onion (home grown)
2. 5 Carrots (organic)
3. One whole 9 oz. bag of ready to eat spinach (processed in two processor loads)
4. ½ cup of golden raisins
5. And whatever fresh vegetables you may have in your refrigerator.
i.e. celery, cauliflower, broccoli, fresh basil….

Mix all in a large bowl as you food-process it.

How easy is that?

In a blender:
Blend ½ cup of Italian olive oil, ¼ teaspoon of fresh lemon juice, about 1/8 teaspoon of ground white pepper, 1/8 teaspoon of dried basil (if you did not add fresh basil to the food processor) and ¼ teaspoon of sea salt. Blend until emulsified.

Dress the salad as you eat it. Enjoy
