on making raw salad

I am trying to juice again now. I am completely out of shape and feeling double my age.  My knee injury acts up off and on and limits my mobility, my feet (plantar fasciitis), is always on the edge of well, but is acutely affecting my life again, my body aches in the morning, I gained more wt. I am tired all the time.....years ago I was actually diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but have not really believed it for sure. However, symptoms are symptoms..so I am reading an inspiring book and I am trying to eat more raw food in my diet.  Little steps I say.  That doesn't mean I won't be eating normal food still but I am  gearing up for a juice fast soon!
Anyway, here is a salad I made that I quite loved.

"Tonya's made up but surely not the first to think of it, raw salad"

Napa cabbage thinly sliced
sweet onions thinly sliced
broccoli 1-2 little trees very finely chopped
red sweet bell peppers
raw sunflower seeds
chia seeds sprinkled
organic raisins
smidgen of real, parm cheese


put all these in a bowl big enough to be able to toss nicely in the amounts you desire


add your home made dressing:


1/2 olive oil and/or grape seed oil
one fresh pressed garlic clove
red wine vinegar
 salt/pepper
several drops of Stevia liquid
shake well
put on salad


toss well


adjust all ingredients according to your tastes..don't be shy..it was soooo good!!

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
