So What Does Bob McCauley Eat For Dinner? (Part One)

Part One

Every night I eat the same thing and I have been doing so for over 12 years now, since 1999.  What I eat every night is a salad.  It never changes, a raw organic salad each and every night for dinner.  I would suggest to you that most people could not do it, eat the same thing every night, but actually it only sounds like I am eating the same thing every night.  The truth is that, although I eat a salad every single night for dinner, the salad itself is never the same.  If I ate the exact same salad every single night I would have gotten bored with it many years ago and probably could not have continued doing it.

In the beginning, I was eating around 70 to 80% raw fruits and vegetables; the remaining 20 – 30% was rice, which fills you up and provides you with calories, but in the end is not healthy.  A lot of Asians have trouble accepting this because rice is a staple of the Orient, as are noodles, which is a staple in China.  But like everything else I write when it comes to health I only state what I know to be the truth.

What varies in my salads are the greens that form its base and the vegetables that are included in it that happen to be in season at that time.  I consume dozens of different types of greens throughout the year, most of which come from either my garden and those that are found growing naturally in my yard.

The staples of my diet, the foods included in my salad each and every night without fail, are garlic, hot pepper, avocado, lime or lemon, seeds and nuts of various kinds.  In the winter in Michigan harvesting greens from my yard is next to impossible until late march or early April when the dandelions, oregano and kale come back.  So the winter months is when I do a lot of sprouting.  I usually sprout anywhere from 20 to 30 different types of seeds during those months.  My favorite sprouts are radish, fenugreek, lentils, red clover, alfalfa, kale and mung beans.  Sprouts are amongst the most powerful foods that we can possibly consume, which is ironic since they are commonly viewed as a food for wimps.

Sprouts are some of the healthiest foods because they are still growing when we consume them.  Other than algae, sprouts are our most powerful food source.  It is ironic that sprouts have a wimpy connotation to them because they are amongst the strongest foods known.  When a seed sprouts, it produces in great quantities some of the most powerful anti-disease chemical agents that are then spread throughout the plant as it grows to maturity.  A good example of this is the broccoli sprout, which produces sulforaphane, a powerful cancer-fighting, chemoprotective agent, at a concentration of 30 – 50 times of that found in the entire plant at maturity.  All sprouts have this high concentration of enzymes and other organic chemical substances in them in the first days of sprouting.

This photo was taken with everything gathered together for my salad.  I put the food on my cutting board and from there all I need is my big chopping knife.

Time involved: Gathering Foods: 3 minutes; Chopping: 2 minutes; Plating: 3 minutes; Clean up: 5 minutes.  Total: 13-15 minutes.  Time does not include enjoying a  delicious meal filled with the nutrients that come from raw foods, which God has made available in order that we can possess true healththe kind of health that simply can’t be found elsewhere
