 5/27/07 Sunday - Raw Food Memorial Day Picnic In Central Park

5/28/07 Monday - No meeting due to Memorial Day Weekend


Our next Raw Food Potluck Dinner will be on Sunday April 22 at Lane Martin's place in Manhattan.

Date: Sunday, April 22, 2007

Time: 4 to 7pm

Location: Lane Martin's place.

To RSVP or get directions call Lane at (212) 665-3255 or (646) 320-6686 or email lanie@pobox.com

What To Bring:  At this potluck we want to limit the foods to raw and organic whole fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. If you want to make a recipe we suggest you use recipes from the new 80/10/10 Diet book by Dr. Douglas Graham.

Or if you make a recipe that is not directly out of that book, please try to follow the 80/10/10 guidelines. Please don't add any salt or spices to your meal. Try to keep the combinations of foods to less than 5. You can use mild herbs to create additional flavoring and raw dressings.

Please don't add apple cider vinegar, Nama Shoyu or other similar ingredients to your recipes. We'll be eating as simply as possible and therefore feeling light and full of energy and enjoying each others company. This will be instead of what people usually feel after attending raw potlucks and getting sick to their stomachs from too many hard to digest combinations and heavy fatty foods.

The great news is that the food preparation will be extremely easy. Bringing a washed bag of organic grapes would do the trick. Or how about bringing two hands of ripe organic bananas or three avocados. This will be the easiest raw potluck you've ever had to prepare food for. Maybe a salad will be slightly more complicated.

Note: I heard the last meeting was fantastic from a couple of the people who were there and Robert is going to continue on a similar theme for this weeks meeting.

Are you experiencing challenges with The Raw Food Diet? What is the most challenging aspect for you?

Perhaps it's something you believe as Macbeth says: "that is a step On which I must fall down, or else o'erleap, For in my way it lies."

As we've discussed in previous meetings, becoming aware is the first step towards change.  At this meeting we'll look at whatever current stumbling blocks are on your road and practice a surefire method to "o'erleap" them.
