Raw Food Rehab

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

Got your attention, didn't I?!

I attended a martini party last night, and took with me the following:

1 HUGE pitcher of green smoothie - frozen peaches, banana, kale, 2 tbsp. agave (to make it sweeter for the others) and water.
1 small pitcher of green smoothie - parsley, Vitamineral Green and apples.

Raw chocolate nut clusters - home made
Raw sweet nuts - home made

Two lovely martini glasses.

Well, after arriving with my huge bin of stuff and taking ALL the ribbing for not drinking the martinis, things actually worked out GREAT! I couldn't believe how much people joked with me about being "hard core" with my diet. Why didn't I bring wine, wine's raw (I may have a glass every now and then, but right now, while losing weight etc. I want to abstain). Why don't I just have "one" martini?

Well, as they got tired, and feeling terribly full, I was feeling great. Then, it happened...one person took the chance and tried some of the green smoothie, then another, then another and before I knew it, at 11pm I looked around the room and all 8 had green smoothies in their martini glass except for one! That's pretty good! I know it was late at night, but WOW! I was so happy to see this. Should have taken a photo!!

Not only were they drinking them, but they were enjoying them. I couldn't believe it. They were going back for seconds as well. It was a great night of conversation and because I was prepared (see previous blog post) I was able to stay true to me and help my friends get some quality food into their bellies! :)

Happy Sunday to you all!

You are awesome! I like how you planned in advance on what to bring and the other thing, by the end of the evening they were tired and you were feeling great. Besides finding out how good raw food can taste; hopefully they saw all the energy you still had late at night. Keep on sharing!

nice job! it is hard to stay true to yourself among temptations. but most people who are worth associating with enjoy being exposed to new ideas. glad they were adventurous.

i got some kombucha from a KEG that tasted like BEER this weekend. wish i could bring that to a party. :-)

Thanks for letting us know how it went. I am glad it went so well . I believe people on SAD think Raw Food is so hard and you showed them it was easy and that is what people want. It doesn't have to be hard to be healthy . Great job !!! Give yourself a pat on the back.

That's great Melinda, I love that you were strong enough to stand up to them, and then you got them to try some green smoothie goodness, that's even better!
