Raw Foods Group
The Hot Springs Village Raw Foods Group met at my house today for our monthly meeting. Cindy has been such a great inspiration and organizer to get everything going. We asked people to bring a raw food dish or pay $5.00 to help with the cost of the food. We had wraps (romaine leaves) and many choices to go in the wraps....baby tomatoes, chives, cucumber, mushrooms, olives, carrots, asparagus, parsley, Cashew Cream Cheese and Quick Guacomole. Cindy brought kelp noodles, gazpacho, another salad, and lots of fruits and veggies. I made a vegetable juice with beets, celery, carrots, kale, beet tops, and apple. Cindy made a fruit smoothie with mango, banana, apple, kale, watermelon, dates, and water.
The recipe for the Quick Guacomole was posted on April 13. Quick Guacomole.
Here is the recipe for the Cashew Cream Cheese:
1 cup cashews (soaked 30 min)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds (soaked 30 min) ...*I was out of sunflower seeds so substituted chia seeds.
1 Tbs nutritional yeast
1 Tbs lemon juice
1/2 cup water
Sea salt and pepper
Blend all in Vitamix. Add fresh chives if desired.
Use in the veggie wraps.
I have finished the first Anastasia book. Book two is entitled The Ringing Cedars of Russia. Anastasia says we need purer thoughts and an understanding of Nature. The first thought in the morning should be delight in the coming day. Nature is always communicating with us, but we can't discern it when we have our electronic devices turned on. Be still and know....
According to the anatomy lesson in my Lifestyle Consultant's Course on Natural Living baldness is not related to aging. The hair follicles are not destroyed. It is a deliberate, systemic evolution of them. Androgenic hormones are causing baby hairs to grow and scalp hairs to die. The scalp follicles become very small, causing men to become progressively balder. Baldness is not an affliction.
To health and happiness.
