Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

hi dear friends - it's been a while since I've posted, and this seems like the time to share some raw goodness!

My son turned 27 over the weekend. He has been vegetarian since age 3 when he declared that he did not want to eat his friends (the animals) any longer. We both converted then and there and have been vegetarian for 24 years. 

Recently my son took the next step to becoming vegan - inspired by his lovely new girlfriend who is very health conscious (thank you Universe!). And the two of them are enthusiastic about going to the Farmer's Market and other fresh, living food choices.

Recently my son wanted to know more about raw food preparation in advance of a camping trip. They decided it would actually be easier to do their meals raw than to cook food. So they came over to my little raw kitchen (3 years now)

I dehydrated kale chips for them, made a mix of chia seeds, nuts and dehydrated fruit for them to have prepped for their breakfasts and such. As we were making things for their camping trip, and I was also preparing a meal to share, my son said - 'you know I get it Mom - if you  have just a few items of the right equipment, preparing food raw is easier and so much more nutritious!'  I couldn't have said it better myself ;-)  It is so wonderful to hear it coming from him!!

For his birthday I made raw zucchini lasagna, and carrot cake with a 'portrait' of my son!

They were beyond thrilled - and it was so much fun to celebrate the raw way.

blessings to you all!

Yes, Raw Truth - it is so worth the effort, and never give up - not as insisting on our way, but more like a gentle rain fall that nourishes the land and will then flow into the receptive areas when the time is ripe!

It's so fun to see how proud he is of his raw/vegan mama now (when I used to be lumped into the category of ... oh mom you know I'm not into that hippy s*it!)

Love it! So fun when you see your kids actually catching the things you are wanting them to learn! I have been surprized by my own kids and it really is sinking in! Sometimes as moms we think they really are not listening and taking things in but then on those off the cuff moments when you hear them talking to friends and sharing what they know it makes us glow inside! It IS worth the effort! Awesome story you just shared!
