"I made a Farley's Bowl for dinner tonight: lettuce, carrots, strawberry slices from 3 berries, 3 crushed walnut halves, 1/2 sweet potato sliced, brown rice, canary beans. Really good, but I only made it a little more than 1/2 way through before getting full. Very full. I put the rest up for lunch tomorrow."
Sorry I know this is from an older post but I've just found your journal and was curious what the reference to Farleys Bowl is??
By the way congrats on your progress. It's been fun reading your journal, and the risotto sounds good too.Dlee
Hi dlee! Thanks for visiting my journal.
A Farley's Bowl is just a type of eating that I learned when SactoBob was posting meals on his blog. His wife, Farley, said she began serving meals layered in bowls in order to reduce the work involved in making McDougall versions of traditional meals. She puts greens on the bottom of the bowl, then adds a scoop of brown rice, a few beans, veggies, berries (I like blackberries), a sweet potato, and Bob adds a few walnuts. That is a Farley's Bowl. I think I am the only one who calls it that, but I was inspired by how easy it was and want to remember where the idea, for me at least, came from
Thanks that clears it up Fuelenn. It sounds very much like the lunch I take to my studio everyday. I have a sort of round tupperware type bowl I fill up with salad and top with baked potatoes, rice and veggies or beans what ever I have left over in the frig.That's a good name for It a Farleys bowl.
PS I love freshmushrooms and rice too.
Are any of sactoBob's recipes still lingering on the net or do all o his posts disappear when he left ?Dlee.
