(Do not try this at home!!!!)
This is my good friend, Linda Walker, the fabulous wildlife & western artist. You remember her from my post about our crazy trip to Descanso Gardens, right? Well, she's decided to eat a little healthier than she has been, so I offered to give her a beginners course in raw foods.
"Raw Food 99". She's not ready for 101 yet.
I started her off on a healthy Green Smoothie. It was a hit. (Whew!)
After knowing her for about 28 years,
I had no idea that she's a notorious chocolate licker... er... lover.
Here she is, washing dishes in her new, bling-embellished, "Not Your Daughter's Jeans".
Love the name.
I made a bunch of stuff for our munching pleasure. Desserts, since most people will be more willing to try raw food 'meals', if they like the desserts. (Whatever it takes!)
My daughters designed the apron for me. "Dessert Diva". Thanks, Girls!!
As you can see, Mr. Man isn't into the raw food thing. But he will drink Green Smoothies.
And hasn't turned down a dessert yet.
Trying out the cupcake. Such an adoring look. Then she scarfed it down.
Never to be outdone in the dessert chow-down... I had two.
How about a Chocolate Milkshake and some Chocolate Mousse?
With pistachios and coconut. Mmm, mmm, mmm!!
Now that I think about it... she was the taste-tester for everything! Heyyy!!
Taking a break from stuffing our faces, I had her look through some of my favorite raw food recipe books. (I love books!!!!)
These turned out really tasty. Since raw desserts are so nutrient-dense, you're only able to eat a small serving, before you're full. Which is pretty cool. And a good thing.
Isn't she cute?!
She's cuter than me! Let's see if I can do something to remedy that.
Tell her something funny...
And a really cool poster about Green Smoothies. (Pure health in a glass!)
I would love, love, LOVE to teach people how to do this!!
To go into their homes and give demonstrations on how to create raw food dishes...
And especially desserts! I mean, who doesn't like desserts?!
I'm taking two, raw food chef classes. One for savory dishes and one for desserts.
I really love showing people a healthy way of eating! And, seriously, it's not all desserts. :)
But I think I'll go have a little bite right now! ~
No stomachs were hurt in the creation of this post. We didn't eat the entire dessert. We only nibbled on everything. Just to let Linda get a taste of the many flavors. Okay, so I ate a couple of cupcakes. And maybe some Chocolate Mousse. And a Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie.
And three strawberries. And a few pistachios.
BUT! We also had some, Zuchini Pasta!! We had VEGETABLES!!!! :-)
