A Day of Meals Using the Solar Diet
- Soaked almonds blended into a puree with soaked raisins or soaked dried apricots.
- An avocado with a squeeze of fresh lime or lemon.
- A banana and walnuts (optional: with maple syrup).
The Ideal Lunch
- A cup of warm miso soup made with fresh scallions.
- Romaine or red leaf lettuce with buckwheat and sunflower sprouts. (Variation: fresh baby greens and red cabbage.)
- Fresh raw tahini dressing. (A tahini dressing recipe: blend raw tahini with either a spoon of white miso, salt, herbal balsamic vinegar, basil, dill, and oregano from your garden or local herbal garden, black pepper and nutritional yeast to taste.)
- Steamed veggies, corn and wild rice.
- Glass of fresh carrot, kale, beet juice. (Variations: add pineapple to sweeten or dandelions to replace the carrots if it is too sweet.)
A Delicious Solar Dinner
- Baked potato with grated carrots, olive oil, and plenty of kelp.
- Sautéed root veggies of your choosing (rutabagas, beets, turnips) with kale and dandelion greens added for calcium, magnesium and liver health. (Variation: winter or butternut squash soup either raw or cooked.)
The solar diet is neither exclusively raw, nor cooked. This part can be adjusted to your preference. The mainstay of the diet is to focus on alkaline quality and to eat with in line with solar energy during the time of day that the light would hit the food as it grows. I don’t have any scientific backing on this diet, but it definitely has its appeal, seems very well-balanced, and is a fun way to eat, in my opinion. Continue the legend of Adono with fun and thanks if it sounds good to you.
