I am intrigued by the concept of raw food.  Its not for me as a complete lifestyle choice because that would mean giving up this:

And roasts, eggs benedict, chocolate fudge... mmmmm
But I do feel we could probably benefit from eating a bit more raw foods.And when you think about it this should be fairly easy - its the ultimate fast food, no cooking required.  But strangely its not.  I think its because eating raw means being organised.  Case in point lunch Tuesday (2:30 pm A's nap time - you take it when you can get it), I reached into the pantry to grab a tin of baked beans (Watties of course).  I was thinking cheese and bean toasties but then I remembered I was trying to eat more raw foods.  10mins later I had this:

and it was good.  But the point is I needed to have a red cabbage, broccoli, chickpeas (which i had precooked sooo... not raw, shhh), in my fridge, nuts in my freezer, and a good quality vinaigrette.  And that involves good organisation.  Today it was a handful of ham, a few cherry tomatoes, and some crackers and humus, (cause I need to hit the supermarket again).  But hey, a little at a time.  Hopefully as I eat more raw, I will get more inspired and learn to shop better at the same time.

Wish me luck

And have a healthy week


PS.  If you need inspiration for raw food ideas try:
Kora Organics (yup, Miranda Kerr's Blog)
Kemis Raw Kitchen (Also see this months Peppermint mag)
 Goddess in the Raw, raw mocha brownies - now that doesn't sound like too much of a hardship!

I've been slack. 
And A's been sick (just a cold nothing major). Which has lead to broken sleep.  And broken  sleep is really hard to catch up when you have a 6month old.  (Six months, where has the time gone!)?
And we've had a weekend in Sydney, which I thought would give me lots of awesomeness to write about, but, alas, did not.
And so here I am linking to other peoples amazing thoughts and ideas from the across the bloggesphere.

There's some great art out there.  I would love to wander through  this instalation.  But even better is the art you can own and love, like these clever and quirky textiles by Jane Denton, (via Fancy). 
This week Etsy's blog also had a post about accesable art.  Yay.

Peonie and Poleroids post on her twins turning two makes me smile, and worry, cause I have all those fun and games to look forward to, (ekkk!).

A race track tee shirt.  Loveing this idea.  A potential Fathers Day pressie I'm thinking.

Have a good week.
