I’m Carole Klawansky and have lived more than 60 years being a slave to the scale, dieting, losing, failing and gaining.  Each time I got heavier and hit my all time high of 350 lbs. in 2008-2009.  My journey had me slowly moving to healthier eating based on the Standard American Diet (SAD.)

In December of 2012 I saw Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s PBS schedule.  It resonated with me and so I began a new way of eating and living.  I have maintained a 220 lb. weight loss for 4 years.”

Carole Klawansky

This is Carole’s first meal of the day.

Water saute red onions, peppers, mushrooms and garlic. She adds green beans and cauliflower.

About 1/2 hour later, she drinks a green smoothie. She blends these ingredients in a Nutri Bullet.

Kale, Swiss Chard, a small, peeled banana, wild, frozen blueberries, cranberries, fresh ginger, ground ginger, hemp milk (she makes her own), flax seed, chia seed, cinnamon, vanilla bean powder, cracked black pepper and beet root powder.

Before Carole eats her salad, she eats a plate of sweets with fruits like cantaloupe, red seedless grapes, black figs, and 1 pop’ems.

Carole’s Big Salad (Carole eats organic “as much as possible”.) Her big salad includes Carole’s Crunchy Mix & Wet Ingredients. She sometimes adds soups and stews too!

Carole’s Crunchy Bowl

Carole uses this to chop onions and other vegetables

Carole loves her “Are you going to eat all that?” huge salad bowl. She originally purchased it in white but has just bought this red one to replace it.

Chopped red and green cabbage, turnips, radishes, sugar snap peas, carrots, celery and broccoli slaw. She crisscrosses paper towels on the top of the bowl before she covers it. Carole says this will keep from 10 – 14 days.

Carole adds this to her Crunchy Mix:

Bok choy, arugual, leafy lettuce, fresh basil, 2 large hands full of crunchy mix, raw, unsalted sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds, no salt seasoning, cracked pepper, dulse granuals and tumeric, and smoked paprika.

Wet Ingredients

1/2 raw, unsalted walnut, Cucumber, mini sweet peppers, broccoli sprouts, heirloom tomato, beets, 2 tbsps fermented saurkraut, scallions, pickled red onions, and a dressing. Grand reserve balsamic and a healthy dressing, 2 tbsps plant based yogurt, Pear vinegar & salt free mustard.

Carole loves recipes from Cathy Fisher’s SOS Free recipe book.
