Munch, munch, we love our lunch

It is important to share meals with the folks you love.  For the past week, I switched from Squeaky Clean Dish Machine (also known as the dishwasher in the more common vernacular) to planning most of our meals.  To make sure everything made it to the plate, I made sure not only to figure out what groceries we would need for the full week, but to write up a soaking, sprouting, and dehydrating schedule.  As someone who appreciates a good schedule for its exotic linear appeal in my vastly spiraling and circular universe, it certainly makes sense in preparing more complex raw food dishes.  In upcoming Vibrant Maine videos, we’ll explore ways to keep it organized in your kitchen, so you don’t find yourself spending all of your time in it.

For lunch today, though, I kept it sweet and simple.

Using recipes from Matthew Kenney’s book Everyday Raw for our Sunday lunch, we had a Blue Green Salad and Spicy Almond Dressing.  Kenney has lovely recipes and his Everyday Raw lives up to its name of being full of meals that can be easily prepared for day-to-day living.

We also had some BBQ Chips which I made a bit thicker so they were a bit thicker – they ended up being closer in texture to pita chips which was quite pleasant.  Quite pleasant, indeed, dear madam!

To make it extra special, we had some sunflower cacao milk – another variation of the Five Milks in Five Minutes recipes.  The colorful spiral straws are completely necessary and do make everything taste better.

Love what you eat and share that love at every chance you get.  With love a meal can reconnect us what is really important in life – being together.
