    Hi Dawn! I feel like I haven't stopped by in any of my friend's blogs lately. Things have been just.so.busy. Sigh…
    I think it's great you're doing a detox! Do you find it hard since you have a husband and child who aren't participating? I'd really like to do one too but it's hard w my husband who is not so much into healthy eating as i am…

    Good question! I plan on making dishes we can all eat. In fact, when I do this my daughter will be able to eat even more with me because she is allergic to dairy and wheat. I have already made banana “ice cream” with honey and she loves all the grains. For the meals with meat I may just grill up some chicken for them, serve the salad or side and then have beans, organic tofu or eggs. My husband and I like fish so he can eat that too.

    oops….I meant “and then have beans, organic tofu or eggs” for me.

    I never think to use miso and tahini for dressings. Looks great. And I had to laugh when you said “I drink wine. I eat. Especially chocolate.”

    Wine and chocolate are antioxidants right???? ;-)

    Exactly! Antioxidants! I need to create the “wine and chocolate diet”. Oh wait. that is what I'm already doing.

    That salad looks amazing! I love all the goodies you have packed into one dish!

    The detox sounds interesting and so healthy. Great way to feel even healthier. I look forward to you blogging about it.

    I'm curious about this coffee you speak of. I actually gave up coffee cold turkey this week! I have on and off, but ongoing, sleep issues and I want to see if this helps.

    Dawn, this is awesome. I meant to post this with your other post from last weekend, but things got busy. I started doing the mindful eating in January. The first week was probably the hardest, but then your sugar cravings subside. And unlike you, I don't go hungry. I eat smaller meals/snacks every 2-3 hours, just until I am full. I don't stress about it at all. As such, I am more cognizant of what keeps me satiated between meals.. I am listening to what my body wants. And this means lots of fruits, veggies, legumes, whole grains, nuts and seeds. I have actually gone vegan whitin the last month, too, cutting out dairy and fish. I thought I'd miss fish the most, but I have been ok so far.

    I encourage you to keep this up! For me, the hardest part, like you mentioned last week is when you mingle it with social functions. I don't eat huge meals anymore, nevermind multi-course affairs (my courses are spaced out over hours), so it can seem really awkward if others don't understand my new way of eating.

    I am routing for you, though!

    I am loving your kohlrabi recipes! I hope to plant some this year. :)

    First of all, can I tell you that you've inspired me to join a CSA for the summer! I'm SO excited and can't wait to create fun recipes like these with all the goodies I get.

    The dressing on this salad sounds DELICIOUS. I just binged last night on some cookies…don't feel so great today but just have to move forward. I need some clean eating like this!

    THANK YOU for all your insightful and encouraging comments. Dawn and Tami…thanks I'm excited!
    Cara, the coffee is SO good. I'll do a post about it soon.
    Janet, great comments. I think I'm doing pretty well on it. As for the going hungry I don't go too long. If I get below say a hunger level of 2 or 3 I have some veggies or my cup o miso or the natural pickles.
    Joanne, yay!!!!!!! I'm so excited you are going to join a CSA. I can't wait to see what cool veggies you get and what amazing things you do with them.

    Your salad ideas seem endless Dawn. I love tahini and since now it is lent period here in Greece we get to use it a lot. This is a beautiful idea!

    This sounds just perfect. I am all for listening to your body and reading the signs. I've cut down the dairy and gluten of my diet recently and even though I have no allergies or intolerances I think it's good minimise the intake of them for a while. It's all about the balance!
