I recently (joined with my partner in crime) started a candida cleanse which means no:
4.yeast (so no bread, carbs, etc)
6. and more
This means I've taken to cooking lots of fresh meals like:
1. fried eggplant w/ almond flour + kale chips
2. chicken fajita, sans taco
3. quinoa with lentil and salad (homemade dressing)
4. Kabob (coming soon)
In this mindset, I volunteered time for fresh veggie juice at the farmer's market.
Lo and behold, I found myself cleaning cilantro for an hour.
In Iran, women would always spend hours cleaning herbs when they came back from shopping.
My grandma still does.
I always watched, fascinated and confused by this process, this woman's work, this task I snubbed my nose at.
And here I am, seeking a life where I do it daily.
