In the video I am using the ingredients that I have on hand. I could have used Roma tomatoes and Italian herbs. the sauce was thinner with the juicier tomatoes but still amazingly delicious. I used cilantro and cumin. You can also use basil, thyme, oregano.
Spiralize and squeeze out excess water with paper towels.
Liquefy in processor or blender
Pour sauce on the noodles and add fresh veggies and olives. I used 1/2 a red bell pepper and green olives from Trader Joes without vinegar or oil.
It’s not a diet it’s a lifestyle. Easier said than done.
I had become complacent and impatient at the same time, in my quest for clean cells. It was so easy to say the way I was eating was a lifestyle not a diet. But I turned my back one day a couple years ago, and have been fighting to get back on track ever since. I guess that’s what I deserve for feeling so sure of myself and thinking I was better than people who called it a diet and had trouble staying clean. Now I’m one of those people and it serves me right. I equate it with quitting drinking or smoking. Every day of your life you’re just one bite, sip or drag away from falling off the wagon again, and having to start from the beginning.
So as a beginner again, I am trying to quit white flour, white sugar, cooked oils and grains, other than quinoa. I am upping the water, green juice and vegetables.
To help me do this and to stick with it I am going to keep a food journal and blog about my journey. Hopefully if I share my experience it will help keep me accountable.

Thoughts and feelings are the most powerful energy in the universe. After all, our world was created by consciousness which is thought.
We humans are made in God’s image. Jesus also said we would do greater works than him. The thoughts and the images that we create in our minds (our dreams and visions) effect every living thing on this planet and beyond. Everything on this planet, including the planet itself, is alive. Plants, animals, climate, literally everything is effected by our thinking. They all thrive on our smiles and thoughts of love. And they wither and die or rebel with our neglect or thoughts of hate.
World rulers have known this from the beginning of time. They have used the power of images to shape and control our thinking. We see it openly in advertising and subliminal messages, but they have been making images with words since there were words.
What most of us don’t realize is the power we hold to make our own images. We don’t have to be sheep and allow ourselves to be led blindly off the mountain. We really can move the mountain.
Prayer is powerful use of thought. We don’t make things happen by wishing, hoping, asking or begging. We do make things happen by knowing and believing that they are true.
In this crucial point in the history of humankind, what images do we choose to create? Do we imagine the end of life as we know it? Of pain and torment for many of our neighbors? Or do we imagine loving all of our neighbors no matter their beliefs. Do we know that we are all one? Do we reach out and give because we can? Or do we whine about who has what and why do we have to share? Do we rejoice in each breath? Do we envision a paradise on this earth? Do we give thanks for every drop of water in our bodies and on the planet?
