What can you achieve in 5 minutes or 300 seconds ?. Quiet a lot! Expand this question to 12 hours of waking time, as I did. What I did in my last 12hours had me reeling. What I achieved was truly AMAZING!! I did things for myself, for other people, I talked and shared, I wrote and I created more amazing RAW Food. New understandings emerged and progress made.

Supreme satisfaction and real joy  was derived from my 12hours. Now join these time periods end to end and I bet you are creating a massive ‘bow-wave’ as you stream through life!!!

So now back to 300 seconds-5minutes you can fill. It’s not a lot of time but might perhaps be the most relevant and important ‘time-slot’ of your waking hours. Preparing food to sustain your body, mind and soul.

I have some beautiful people coming to RAWHq today for a personal RAW Food class. This is one of the dishes I will  show them how to prepare – the nut mayo too, which is a great ‘all-rounder’ and not just a mayo but more like a ‘friend in the fridge’. Very handy to have around.

The full recipe and approach to the salad and the mayo that goes with it will be available to you as part of a series of 7FREE RAW Video Recipes coming your way soon. You can sign up to receive this and 6 others designed to get you started on the RAW Food Lifestyle. See the box up on the right hand side of this page.

Oh, in a recent 300 seconds I made my own macadamia nut paste too. I had eaten the roasted commercial variety for a while but being RAW in everything I take into my body I decided my nut butter also needed to ‘comply’. Totally amazing. It had the consistency of ‘spun honey’ and is sweetish and 1000% nutritious.

You can do your own too by just adding chopped fresh macadamia nuts to your blender or the wet bowl of your Vitamix. Use the tamper to keep the nuts in the blades and after a minute or two on #10 a ‘liquidy’ consistency will emerge. Serve directly into your mouth from a spoon – my fav or add to seed bread. A real taste sensation.

Enjoy may latest offerings and don’t forget to sign up to get your 7FREE RAW Video recipes – you will be amazed at how easy it is to prepare RAW food when you are shown how.

Now, how are you going to spend your next 300 seconds ??
