It is hard for me to put into words what a unique experience it was for me to attend a raw food potluck (a.k.a. "meet up") on Cleveland's East Side with a group of people that I had never met before. It seemed exciting and cooky all at the same time. And I'm so glad that I went. The food was incredible; the people were so nice. I got to sample a ton of things that I have only read about: raw lasagna (YUM!), sunflower seed pate, raw pumpkin pie, Hail to the Kale salad (spectacular), raw mushroom stroganoff, zucchini "pasta" made in a spiralizer, and the most creative dish of the night, raw toaster pastries. And that is just the short list! Raw food really does taste better than cooked food.
