Hey folks! We have officially hit the road again, and we are currently residing in the gigantic state of Texas! This means, that we no longer have to deal with the SNOW!!! It is glorious! A couple days this month even hit 90 degrees! I don't even know what to do with myself and all this GREEN everywhere! There's grass, sunshine, cool rain, rainbows, and did I mention grass?! I am barefoot outdoors once again, and we are even gardening. This is such a welcomed break from the cold, snowy Rocky Mountains that we were previously residing in.
I know I told you that I would go over refrigerator storage solutions this month, but I think I am going to cover these bad boys instead...seeing as how they are pretty RV friendly. We got ourselves a couple portable GREENHOUSES from Aldi's! They are sold on Amazon as well, but for twice what we paid for them. The links to them are HERE.
They can be assembled & disassembled rather quickly for transit mode. Once disassembled, they don't take up much room at all, and they are pretty lightweight. The plants they house can easily be stored in the shower, until we reach our next destination. The only thing I will say about them that is slightly negative is this, because they aren't instantly taken apart or put together, I wouldn't want to deal with taking them down and setting them up on a daily basis. So if you are a daily traveler, you might want to reconsider purchasing them. If you are somewhere for a couple weeks at a time, however, I think they would be perfect! Also, the RV park we are at (and I'm sure the ones we've stayed at in the past) have no problem with these. But, I'm sure there are RV parks out there that wouldn't appreciate them. So you might want to set them up at the back of your rig, or ask for permission to have them, before you go to a new park. They obviously give off the appearance of Full-timer status, which some parks don't like.
We have already begun our vegetable and herb garden and are anxiously awaiting the new growth of everything. I also planted some Aloe Vera, Lavender, and Echinacea for their healing properties.
In regards to the upcoming smoothie recipes, if you aren't Raw Vegan, I would advise you to make just 1/4-1/5 the size of these smoothies to meet your daily nutritional requirements. I eat a Raw Vegan smoothie every day just about, and typically a large salad for lunch and dinner, as well. On occasion, I will have a cooked Vegan meal for dinner. The meals below are just a mere sampling of everything I consumed this month, but I am trying hard to not post repeat meals.
If you have other questions about Veganism, and you would like me to address them in my next post, please leave a comment below and I will do my best to answer them. More information about Raw Veganism can be checked out HERE. Next month, I will post many of the things I ate, as well as address RV refrigerator storage solutions. Where the heck does a person even find the room to store all that produce per week in a small RV fridge??? Thanks for reading and EAT MORE PLANTS!!!!!!
