Raw Food Thanksgiving and Kava!

November 27, 2010

Here are some pictures of my Raw Thanksgiving. I’m not great at remembering  to take pictures, but I tried while I was in FL.

I’m not sure that’s such a bad thing. I feel like it takes me out of the moment of actually enjoying what’s happening when I have to stop and step out of it and “remember” to take a picture for later. Id rather enjoy what I’m doing at that time and be “in the moment of it” while its happening, not later!

Ok, so that’s my excuse. Here is most of the food except for the amazing raw chocolates my mother made and some other yummy tid bits.

Papaya Encrusted Salmon Steak from Raw Food for Everyone. This is probably one of my all time favorite raw food dishes and its so easy to make.

Butternut Squash Ravioli from Raw Food for Everyone

This is the Butternut Squash stuffing. You can see that I couldn’t wait to eat it by the finger marks in it. This was SO good!

This is similar to the recipe for rice with the Nori rolls in RFFE but i think she just used parsnips and pine nuts.

This was an almond type bread with a salsa like the one in RFFE. We ate this first for an appetizer. OMG, so good!!!

Watermelon Soup from Living on Live Food. My mother lives on this. She makes it all the time and since it was an 80 degree day for Thanksgiving, it seemed appropriate!

Blueberry Cheesecake from RRFE. This was so creamy but not heavy. We ate this as we ran out the door to catch our plane home. I kept going back for more!

After spending Wednesday morning with one of my best friends who I haven’t seen for almost 2 years and then running off with my sister Stacie to her friends are gallery (Her place is beautiful ) we went  to 4th Generation in Boca. It’s a raw food deli and small supermarket. Great Place! I forgot to take pictures of the wraps but we had a raw hummus and falafel wrap and a raw mock tuna wrap, they were SO good! I did however remember to take a picture of the macaroons we devoured. You can see they are almost gone!

We then met up with Dennis and then later my parents for dinner. My sister and I decided, after our parents were gone and Dennis was asleep, to go to this Kava Bar that was about 2 minutes from us.

This was such a cool place! This is Stacie, drinking the kava at the bar. We had 3 coconut shells worth. I felt really relaxed and pretty happy after those!

If you click on these you can see them better. It was dark in there so the pix aren’t  great. This is also our new friend Erin, the Kava Barista, she was so cute and sweet and showed us “the kava ropes”. I’m addicted!

Sunrise the next morning from our patio and then home that night!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Its was really nice to be able to spend it with my family, its been years!

Don’t forget, Free Shipping at on EVERYTHING in the store until Monday night!!!!!
