minced garlic to taste~again I use a lot 2-4 cloves (lots of good properites)
salt to taste
pinch of ground cloves (optional)
1/4 c. lemon or lime juice

Mix together and let marinate..you can eat this as is..or top it with sunflower seeds or use it ontop of a salad

My son has been a very strict vegan for some time now and he is ready to go super high raw!!
This is such an encouragement to me.  His goal someday is to be in the alternative health field.
He is taking college exams at one of our local colleges, while studying at home.  This is a very cost effective way to get a degree.  It is called CLEP~college level exam program.  It has been around for years.  They started it a long time ago for the older crowd that needed to go back to college to get additional education or additional degrees.  Your guidance counselor will not tell you this is available...but you can get a 2 year business degree or other degrees without even enrolling in college.  My son began this his junior year of high school and was half why there before his senior year...so I graduated him a year early and he is just about to complete his 2 year degree!! saving himself TIME and lots of $$$.  Google it and find out how you can do this...if you have a child that is homeschooled you can get started earlier than after High School or if you child is considering college this may be an option for him/her.
Back to his health career...while studying for his CLEP exams he is also doing some self study programs in health & wellness.  So he is feeding the family all of the info he is reading!!! Yippee!
This is a good refresher course for me and also an encouragement or irritation to the rest of the family...hehehe!!
