Our monthly gathering is a time to meet fellow South Bay raw foodies, to help and support each other get started or stay on the path to a raw vegan lifestyle. We always have interesting demos, conversations. We all learn from each other.
BRING A DISH TO SHARE:
- Please bring a raw vegan dish that can serve 4 to 6 people.
- Please bring a list of the ingredients to put along side your dish. This list can also include any info that describes the name of the dish & its ingredients. Fyi – I have name plates that hold a paper size of 5 inches wide and 1.5 inches deep. ….and have paper, too.
- We encourage you to get creative, make your own, a favorite dish from your favorite raw cook book, or blogger, or other. Feel free to write the group for ideas.
- Food guidelines/ingredients:
- Some processed foods are okay, yet keep them to a minimum – like canned coconut milk, maple syrup, brown sugars.
- Agave-free is best.
- No white sugar.
- Seasonal, local, organic, sustainable, biodynamic, fair trade is best.
- If you have questions, just send me an email, or post it on the groups message board.
- If you are new to raw food -and want/need to keep it simple- you can bring fruits, cut veggies or a simple salad w/a raw dressing.
I will put out a ‘donation jar’ to help pay for the monthly MeetUp fee, this donation is optional and the amount you put in is totally up to you.
1:15pm: Circle – Introductions (you/your dish)… welcome newcomers.
1:30pm: Eat, drink, be merry.
3:00pm: Goodbye hugs
We’ll celebrate all the creations (both food and drink), and will give a special nod to:
- the dish/drink that exceeds in flavor, texture and/or looks
- the dish/drink that exceeds in creativity (feel free to bring props, b/c creativity includes flavor, the process and the presentation)
- the person who stretched the most (we’ll give a bow to the one(s) who went waaay outside their comfort zone)
- the most s i m p l e, yet tasty and creative dish/drink (this could be a single food item that came from your backyard)
- the dish/drink that falls under the ‘difficult’ category (qualifiers for this category are too toooo many to name)
- the dish/drink that falls under the ‘most outrageous’ category (qualifiers for this category are unknown to name)
- the dish/drink that _______. I’m sure – at the table – we’ll come up with more special nods.
Joni Sare, SBR’s organizer, will host this event.
