I really want to make my own kombucha b/c for whatever reason it acts like a total pick-me-up for me, but buying it at $5 per bottle is ridiculous. So that is my task for the weekend - order the "mother" and get ready to ferment. =)
I also would love advice on this - I host an annual potluck at my place for my book club. Everyone has respected my veganism in the past and the fact that I have Celiac, so we've kept the event totally vegan and gluten-free. It's next week - I don't expect people to also do raw at this event, but I don't want them bending over backwards to make dishes I don't want to eat. Should I tell them just to keep it vegetarian but that I'm doing a month of 100% raw? I was thinking of not saying anything and just loading up on my own dishes, but I'm torn. We are a meat-free house, so even if I'm not eating it I don't do meat here so I can't say, "Bring whatever." Any thoughts? My friends tell me to just eat cooked that day b/c it won't kill me. Hmmm.....
it wouldn't actually kill you but it might, maybe even probably will, derail you. The kind, honest thing is to explain - to some or all extent. There are all sorts of ways you can sneak round the issue but ultimately up to you; good friends will understand.

I made a yummy drink yesterday containing the following:
2 cups of nuts (hazelnuts, walnuts and some peanuts).
2 tablespoons of ground flaxseeds
3 cups of water
1 handful of blueberries
Even my friends liked it!
It sounds very filling too. I have had a good 100% raw day. May have pomelo later.
Thanks Georgina! That's basically what I was thinking, too.
vegi nori roles all sorts at a japanese place when i asked them to hold the rice the women starts telling how its going to be hard to make and messy. I told her i dont mind the messiness. So many yummy roles.
handful of dates
flaxseed crackers with almond pate
salad romaine/peppers/smoked paprika/turmeric/grapeseed oil veganase/mustard/onions
3 garlic cloves
tlb coconut oil
3 cups of green tea (not sure what the difference is but 2 were at japanese place and 1 cup at home from tea bought in pakistan but they do
have very different tastes plus the one at home i added cardamen)
Most excellent day b/c I had my favorite smoothie twice! =)
B: Strawberry smoothie
S: Apple smoothie
L: Avocado Soup
S: Strawberry smoothie
D: Spicy Coconut Curry Soup
S: Handful of pistachios, broccoli and cauliflower florets
Strawberry smoothie sounds nice. I had various raw stuff as I mentioned but I did make a ginger tea. 4-5 thin slices fresh ginger, hot water, large tsp honey, juice half a lime. It was very good though only partially raw I think. Herbal teas seem to be allowed however- lots of people talk about various teas.
