Essentially, rules are made to try and stop you thinking. Largely they work !! The challenge now is to restart the creative engine, throw caution to the wind and set sail right out of your comfort zone.
Preparing LIVE FRESH RAW food is about sailing into uncharted waters. When our forebears went out to discover the so-called New World they just pointed their ships in an approximate direction and prayed they’d make land fall. Most times they did. There were some mishaps along the way, but generally they made contact with the dream they imagined existed East, West, South or North!!
‘Doing’ RAW food is just the same and I invite you to set sail, trim and adjust your compass heading at your discretion. No RULES. Remember you are recreating your lifestyle – very different from the way you and generations lived before. This is a BIG thing and shouldn’t be approached lightly. However let me personally share with you that the benefits are enormous and amazing and the first tentative steps are well worth the courage.
Christopher Columbus couldn’t call up Google Earth for directions. You can. Technology is present to assist the RAW transition – Websites, Facebook and YouTube. Our modern day compass which, at the press-of-a button, takes you to a place of instant answers and knowledge, is at your finger tips. Aren’t we so so fortunate?
Try this wee adventure for comfort. Sun dried apple juice soaked beetroot slithers layered between dried fresh figs liberally doused with ‘RED’ Caramel sauce and finished with walnuts!!
Amazingly crunchy and sweet and lovely. Totally 100RAW!! Beats the old frozen berry ‘cheese cake’ and so much easier!!
When you know how to take risks and are comfortable with the odds, its OK !! I’m not sure this RAW dessert has ever been done on Earth before. It worked!! Therefore I am an explorer and a pioneer. You can become your own explorer and pioneer too.
In keeping with having two different images with each of my blog posts – have a crack at this!! This is an image which typifies my Noosa Farmers Market…freshly grown chillies, ginger and curry leaf..amazingly amazing when used in RAW food.
I have enjoyed this day which led up to the writing of this blog. I love creating and I hope some of my passion rubs off on you.
Remember you never discover anything about yourself if you aren’t prepared to set sail into your imagination and fearlessly go where you have not sailed before. Have fun and act as if there are NO rules at all – its so much easier.
