My title is referring to medjool dates.
I have been indulging in boxes of these babies for weeks now, and I can say they're definitely helping me in this cold. HOWEVER, I do think I'm overdoing it, I'm remembering to brush my teeth better than usual (3x a day, not 1x or 2x), and I just have slight sensitivity on my right upper canine, SO......I'm going to lay off the 'jools for a while.
My favourite ritual is my daily walk into Kensington to go to this organic garage-like store (64 Nassua St.) I buy dates first, then bananas at 29cents/pounds and enjoy the vit D! Yesterday I went to buy dates, and the jar was empty. I literally freaked out, the owner just chuckled and said, "HOLD ON, fresh from the truck!" ...a potentially horrible day turned magical in an instant.
I will be ordering from the date people soon, so will update you on how that goes, where do you get your dates from, and how do you enjoy eating them? (With almond butter? bananas? alone? let me know!)

Pictures from weekend raw endeavors. I realized I never posted a how-to on nut mylk, so here are the basics.
Soak raw almonds for 4-8 hours
Check for tips = sproutage has begun!
Blend with double cup amount of water, ex. 1cup almonds = 2 cups water
Add cinnamon/(coconut oil/maple syrup/agave/stevia/medjool dates)
**strain through paint strainer bag/nut mylk bag (I didn't do this, I like it thicker for breakfast/fruit combos) Keeps for 2-3 days.
Sprouts: mung bean, buckwheat (soak lightly, few minutes, drain and leave to sprout), peas, and quinoa. I should express why it is super VITAL to sprout. Firstly, sprouts are a huge component of this diet, without them, you're screwed. They're high in protein (aminos), give tons of energy, add kick to salads/smoothies, and are ALIVE vs. dried/starchy hard to digest things (pre sproutage).
Two tablespoons per jar.
Cover + Set in dark place. Rinse every 4 hours. The shells come off and you need to ensure no mould grows!
