Welcome to You and All your Brilliant Parts!

In 2009 I lost 40 lbs and I got a new butt. How? Diet and exercise, that's the short answer. But all of the things I learned that made it emotionally possible, that allowed me to succeed when I had failed before - that will take longer. This blog celebrates the intelligence of the body. Please leave me a note to let me know what you think of this writing, if it's been helpful. I welcome your input and experience.

Mermaid Salad

Hello, fellow transformation specialists!  Here's a seaweed salad recipe I promised some of you awhile back.  It's still good!

Mermaid Salad:
Mix together, then mix in dressing:
3/4 oz dried wakame, arame, or hijiki, soaked in cold water according to package directions
1 inch piece ginger, 2 cloves garlic, 1 carrot all grated together
2 green onions (scallions), sliced up to the green
2 T fresh cilantro

3 T rice vinegar
3 T soy sauce or tamari
1 T sesame oil
1 T sugar
1 T toasted sesame seeds
red pepper flakes or hot sauce (I use Sriracha chili sauce) to taste

Okay, so this has lots of sodium and some sugar, so go easy on it, but remember that sweet and salty tastes are part of a good diet too.  Seaweed has lots of minerals - pour your soaking water on plants or add to broth.

Later, Jenni
