Kristen's Raw 26th Awesome Giveaway - FREE Holiday Book!
Posted Nov 02 2010 3:16pm
The holidays are approaching. Can you believe it? Now that they're around the corner, I'm starting my holiday food planning. What parties will I be going to (if any! lol)? What family events are in store? Am I hosting any get togethers? What foods do I want to eat for Thanksgiving and Christmas? Will I be all Raw or High Raw? What foods do I want to make in advance to freeze?
This is a great little book, covering the pluses and minuses of being Raw during the fall and winter holidays. On one hand, holidays are very social occasions that usually focus around food, which raises issues for Raw food enthusiasts, such as how to explain your food preferences to family, hosts, and visitors, and how to deal with temptations to stray too far from healthful habits.
On the other hand, again, the holidays are about FOOD. This presents a fantastic opportunity to try some super fun and delicious, seasonal recipes! ( View recipe list. ) There is perhaps no better way to start dabbling in Raw or to introduce the cuisine to others... the sheer novelty of Raw holiday food is certain to stimulate conversation. You'd be amazed how some people's ears perk up when they hear about Raw, as though it's completely novel and foreign, yet somehow instinctively feels natural and right.
All in all, the holidays are a great time to experiment with all aspects of the Raw lifestyle, both culinarily and socially, and this short book is the perfect place to start. Learn recipes that are easy to prepare, great to take to parties, and perfect for your family gatherings. At a time when the rest of the world is packing on pounds and clogging their arteries with all kinds of yule tide crud, you'll be getting super healthy and full of energy by eating this amazing food — at the time of year when you need energy the most!
