|Here is Travis making green smoothies in the Vita-Mix
We usually eat fruit and nuts for lunch. We ate the last of the goody balls yesterday. I am going to have to make another batch next week....just as soon as I can get the time. Here are two of the lunches we have had this week.
|Lunch: green smoothie, grapefruit with honey, honeydew, pear, avocado, goody ball, and almonds.

When Travis pruned the fruit trees he brought in some pear branches to force. They are starting to bloom in a vase in the living room. You can see one of the garden beds out the window. It won't be long before we'll be out there planting some salad fixings.

On Thursday, I went to Little Rock with Travis to visit our friend, Karl. This is usually a guy gathering, but Arthur couldn't go today, so I went. We ate lunch at The Root, a restaurant that specializes in locally grown food. Not much on the menu for a raw foodie. I ordered the side salad and an order of sweet potato fries. It was delicious. We had a jam packed day. We toured the Clinton Presidential Library, Heifer Project International, The Arkansas Territorial Museum, Argenta Market, and Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church. Then we went back to Karl's house to make some preparations for the visit from Dr. John Fielder in May. Karl and Rebecca are hosting a presentation this year in Little Rock.

Awareness brings harmony and integration. Disintegration and disharmony bring discomfort and disease. We can't totally separate what is psychological and what is physical, but it helps to temporarily separate them as we try to understand the mind-body connection. We are trying to figure out how awareness helps keep the tissues and organs healthy. -Adapted from The Quintessence of Natural Living
