Raw Food Extravaganza

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.

The raw toaster pastries.

It was a food orgy. When can I go back?

That spread looks fantastic! I'm intrigued and a little afraid of raw, did you really like the raw versions better than cooked? Were there many boys there? I know Mr. B is going to want to go to the next one.

I'd say it was half men, half women. Some people came as a couple. Do not be afraid of raw, it tastes way better and you don't need to eat nearly as much food to be really satisfied. I ate more this week than any week in the past 10 months and my weight is holding steady. I'd say I'm about 60% raw right now.
