Raw Food Rehab

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

So, it's that time of year again when we come out of hibernation for about five weeks in the winter! With socializing on an all time high this next while I've been busy in the kitchen preparing some things to help me remain raw while still being able to socialize with my friends!

For example, tonight it's off to a MARTINI party! Of all things! I only work part time teaching and never get to socialize with the ladies so I agreed to attend this party but wanted to go prepared. As well I want them to experience some raw goodness while we're there!

So today I was busy in the kitchen making some raw nut/dried fruit clusters. It is completely raw and delicious! I'll post the recipe in the recipe section! I also made some of my sweet nuts as well. These will be nice to nibble on while we drink. But never fear, I will not be partaking in the martinis...instead I will be sipping on my GREEN smoothies that will be prepared just before I go. I am going to take it in a big Mexican pitcher and share with whoever is willing! I'll also serve them in martini glasses just to stay within the theme.

It is good to remember:

"By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail."
-- Ben Franklin

It is very true in most cases! I love to feel prepared and a little pre planning is all it takes. In order to succeed, we need to take steps that will help us to feel prepared, especially during this holiday season. Who knows, by living our truth we may help someone else find theirs!

This is awesome, Melinda!! Two jewels that I'm taking from it are the Franklin quote and "Who knows, by living our truth we may help someone else find theirs!" Thanks so much for sharing this. I'm sure you were the hit of the party!

Wow. I needed to read this just now.

Love your plan with the green smoothies and the martini glasses. I'm thinking it wouldn't hurt us to dress up our smoothies at home, instead of the same old plastic cups. : )
