After having a wonderful INTERdependence Day weekend, and a media holiday for 4 days, I am busy prepping for two events coming up this weekend. I highly recommend taking media holidays from time to time – it really helps to clear your head. I find myself giving too much attention to the negative energy that is so typical of media broadcasts. Spending a weekend learning about decentralizing the food production and bringing gardens to our own communities was so refreshing and inspiring. I only wish I had enough produce ready to harvest for this weekend’s events.
The first event is this Friday, July 9. I call it Raw Vegan Dinner Party+ because it is a dinner party PLUS a class in raw food preparation. I will be making a four course dinner, and demonstrating how to prepare all the courses. What’s on the menu? Stuffed mushroom appetizer, followed by “braised” spinach in a mustard lemon dressing. The entree is my version of raw lasagna, stuffed with basil pesto and cashew cheese. For dessert we will have a chocolate chia seed pudding parfait.
On Saturday, I am teaming up with Lorraine Aguilar, yoga teacher and physical therapist extraordinaire and founder of Yoga Flow Studio, at the monthly Cinema Night. This month, we will be screening Food Matters, and I will be doing a raw food demo and sampling.
It’s not too late to register for either event. Call me to reserve a spot.
