this week i introduced them to the healing powers of thai young coconuts through my famous avocado/coconut water/raw honey smoothie. next week i was thinking of teaching them a kid friendly retake on an all time favorite: banana and nut butter sandwiches. this one is delicious, quick and no brainer. i will post the recipe and hopefully a picture or two after i make it for them. it's basically going to be fresh made raw walnut butter spread on big romaine lettuce leafs adorned with banana slices in the middle and rolled up into a wrap sandwich. sweet, nutty and crunchy - it doesn't get better than that.
i also learned my sister likes seaweed but has never had dulse! wow, is she in for some surprises. i can do some very tasty and simple things with dulse. she also wants to try raw hemp seed, another one of my specialties. so i have a really fun line up of activities and raw food instructions for the entire family. it's a win-win situation. i will be getting much more out of it than they might think. i feel it is healthier to interact with food again this way because i know the kind of example i want to set to the kids and ridgid, obsessive, orthorexic viewpoints will not be welcome throughout this process. i will be very mindful and mature in how i go about with this and keep an open mind that is not about them going raw! it's about them getting healthier by eating more raw vegan meals of fruits and vegetables, juices and smoothies. i wish this for everyone really. the body molds to what you feed it, eat dead food and create death, eat living foods and create life! that is the flat out truth. we all deserve fresh, raw, organic vegan foods.
Bible Verse of the Night:
1 John 4:11-12 (New International Version)
11Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
heart to heart:
what's your favorite raw food?
