I am so grateful for my raw food journey & the path it has taken me on. When I think back on the person I was prior to discovering a raw vegan lifestyle and who I am today, I can’t help but chuckle and recognize the beauty in the journey that has unfolded before me.
This week has really given me pause for reflection as I have had a crazy fun raw food week that kicked off on Sunday at the Chocolate Lovers’ Fling … Maggie & I made 1200 chocolate Kids Gone Raw chocolate samples to share with fling goers … LOTS of WORK … & it was just so wonderful to see people enjoy our pure, wholesome sweet treats alongside all kinds of traditional chocolate treats.
And on Wednesday we (team Kids Gone Raw) hosted a Dave the Raw Food Trucker Dinner & Talk for 30 people that was RAWmazing! Maggie & I prepared a Mediterranean themed meal that consisted of gazpacho filled cucumber cups, a greek salad topped with falafel & tzatziki sauce & then a fruit sorbet, chocolates & brownies. (RECIPE for Falafel HERE & Greek Salad HERE) SO GOOD!
Dinner was followed by a rawsome talk with Dave the Raw Food Trucker. Dave shared his inspiring story of how a raw organic vegan lifestyle helped him reverse multiple diseases & lose 200 pounds. WOW! And his coach & mentor, David Whiting, shared the science behind raw food & his own personal story about how he found raw food. What a great night–THANK YOU ALL for coming out & thanks to Dave & the Whitings for coming to Portland!
And then last night I got to hear Dave’s talk again at Portland’s ROOST House of Juice on Free Street. ROOST served up a fabulous menu of raw organic vegan food (thank you, ROOST) & the two Daves shared their magic again with another crowd of rawk stars. Gratitude. It was just so great to be a part of it all!
I love our city & vegan community & of course, team Dave the Raw Food Trucker! RAWK ON! xoxo
