Also....today I'm thrilled to announce our very own, in house raw food chef, Michelle K., has just released her brand new blog/website and DVD - It's A High Raw Life. Please go visit & show her some big RFR love!
Green Smoothies RULE!!
I LIVE for Green Smoothies!
They are the secret of my raw success!
I got the idea to make Green Smoothie chips from the Ann Wigmore DVD in our Media Room! Also, if you do not dry them as long to make as chips, to make as mini wraps that you can fill with veggies and a sauce..whatever you like!
I make my chips from my sweet Green Smoothie...making it with savory green soups is a wonderful idea!
Hey, have you noticed? Michelle is on our pic for the Culinary Center!! Support Michelle's efforts! You will not be disappointed! I absolutely LOVE Michelle's DVD!! Go get yours NOW!!!
If you don't have a Vitamix, you could use a food processor first and then your regular blender. That's what I do. I got a round American Harvester dehydrator for $5 at a thrift store. I see tons of blenders and food processors there all the time for cheap. I am excited because I ordered a new Excalibur dehydrator. I see green chips in my future!
Beautiful! Makes me long for a vitamix AND a dehydrating machine!!! *sigh*
SO excited for MichelleK!
Penni, your video was great and I did learn something today. I had seen the energy chips also on the Ann Wigmore videos, but you made it look much easier. I love portable food and these energy chips will do the trick
I actually don't really like raw soup that much! But I have tried one of your other soups and I did like it. I think the chunky factor might help me out. I mean, I like raw chili and it's part soup. i suppose you just have to make it work for your own taste buds, right? thanks for sharing.
You are so funny Penni - "Baby Poop!" What's funny about that is that it's true. Family members, coworkers, friends - they all think that green smoothies are gross because they are green, or the raw soups are gross because they are a yellow green. You would think that they would look at color as being beautiful, good, delicious, clean! Oh well, they have to try it before they should be allowed to judge it. It is good! Real good!!!
I'm still waiting for the opt to own a vitamix or blendtec blender, and also an excalibur dehydrator. For now I'm happy with my current cuisinart blender, and using my friend's ronco dehydrator. My nesco burned out finally... I have to say, although not mandatory to eat well, using a vitamix sure is great! I got to use a coworkers for about two months - it was RAWSOME!!!! Some day!!! =)
Love your videos Penni! Love you! I appreciate all you do for the raw food community! Thank you, thank you!!! =)
FANTASTIC! Idea for making green chips, I'm going to make those!!
Your Foodie Friday vids could possibly be the most favourited also, I fave yours and Michelle K's all the time!
I'm pleased you liked the Easter Bunny photo, I haven't seen him this morning, I hope we didn't frighten him off when we were sneaking around putting the food out for him, he was SOOOO CUTE! I was flabbergasted at the coincidence of him being there on a Good Friday!! I had NEVER seen a rabbit on our property before, this was the first time....SPECIAL.
UK Hugs to you
Just gone to favourtie your video and I can't find the favourite button?? This has happened before but where is the fave button on here?? I fave Michelle's with no problems
