No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
I have a lovely friend, she is my bookkeeper/organizer angel who has helped this artistic/right brained multi-talented and curious person (that would be me) tame the paper tiger, and keep the records straight through the years.
This lovely friend has noticed the blessings and benefits of my raw foods lifestyle -
and since she's known me for many years she has also seen the lighter/leaner/more energetic ME emerge in the past 2 years.
So, my dear friend asked if I would support her in adding more raw food items into her meals, and teach her how to prepare them.
I said YES.
That was before i received her LONG LIST of foods she must avoid (oh) like nuts and seeds, and bananas and avocados, and the list went on and on.
And it includes so many of my 'go to' items for making raw-delicious and delectable meals.
She seemed a little sheepish when she sent the e-mail the the LONG LIST of foods to avoid.
and I said (not to be daunted), 'no worries' a challenge is just an adventure in disguise!
then I said, ooh I like that, let's adopt that as our club motto :-)
then I set about meeting the challenge/adventure. I came to visit the Kitchen here in RFR, and I went on the 'net for nutless recipes (although most folks substitute with seeds, chia, sesame, sunflower - these were in the no-no list)
and I came up with 3 lovely dipping sauces - 1 slightly sweet (Ayn Julos Apple Curry - yummers!); I spicy (my own creation of sundried tomato/chipotle) and 1 slightly tart (an amazing no tahini zucchini hummus)
we made these together and sat down to our dipping sauce lunch with a large mound of jicama sticks.
Oh my!! oh my!! oooooooo my! it was all so delicious and EASY and my friend went home with a smile on her face, a handful of recipes to try on her own.
and I felt very, very, very pleased with myself :~)))
p.s. it's not a very pretty picture and doesn't convey the enjoyment we experienced, but you know I just had to share a photo
