Hey hon! Sorry I haven't really checked this site in a while :) Yay Chicago! Unfortunately I moved away to Vermont last year, but I definitely miss the city sometimes! What neighborhood do you live in?
I'd love for you to share bulk recipes! It's a topic that has merit since so much of what's found dived comes in vast quantities of a single item, as I'm sure you always see.
I've been laying low for a while...the whole family got a cold, what a drag! I've quite literally never eaten so many oranges; about 80 lbs in a few days. Fortunately they're cheap at the local produce store, but I usually score lots of them dived too. So I know what to do with 2,000 oranges, hah!
Hey, your recent finds are amazing! It really is amazing how well you can eat from dived stuff--we can feed our whole family great stuff.
I was wondering if you can add to a couple discussion pieces I started. One of them is called "store employees," and a lot of people are hesitant about that part.
Also, there is one called "What to do with 2,000 grapes" which is a discussion aimed at recipes of bulk items, which is an area that particularly interests me. Since dived items usually come is crazy quantities, I'd like ideas on what to do with bulk tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.
And my diver friend is Rocky--he and his wife just had a baby! But he lives in the city and would be interested in hearing about what you've got going on. I think his wife Sophia is vegan. Tell him Tania and Chris gave you his number and that you're looking for a connection with divers in the city. I will try to call him today and give a heads-up that you'll be in touch. His number: 773-213-4446
I'm so happy about your dives! They really change the landscape of your thoughts, don't they? Diving isn't just something I do when we need more food. It also feels important to rescue that stuff and re-home it.
Are you a member of RAW STUDENTS? If not, join! I live on campus, and the dining plan is a part of housing. I chose the least expenive plan, and use my money on the expnsive organic salad bar occasionally ( rE-diculous...) and get the rest of my food off campus ( bananers, dates, watermelon, seasonal stuff, celery, lettuce, etc. ) I am 811 all the way!
Great to know you are doing so well! It's inpiring for sure ;)
All good so far - not many cravings - just very uncomfortable bloating... Although day 9 it has shifted a little. Bowl movements finally! But period isnt helping the large tummy, lol!? Will persevere though, goo luck too! xx
