*********** Guidelines for Food ***********
Please prepare your dishes with raw, organic (at least
free), vegetarian (vegan - no animal products) ingredients. Nothing
steamed, baked or otherwise heated above 105 degrees is appropriate for
potluck. Dehydrated foods and dried fruits are fine as long as they
been prepared within the temperature guideline above. Tofu and most
are not raw foods. Please pay attention to what might go into your
oils, vinegar, spices, salt...is it raw, healthy, etc. Could it be
later at the potluck by those who want it?
Some attendees have been on the raw path for 20+ years so we must
these seemingly strict guidelines. There are some wonderful raw foods
cookbooks available at the local health food stores for new ideas, or
can go to www.living-foods.com for lots of great recipes. Beautiful
greens and veggies presented in a wide variety of (raw) ways are always
winner. Be creative, enjoy yourself and have fun! If in doubt - leave
out! Call or email if you need ideas or have questions.
******* Plates and Silverware *******
Please bring your own plate and silverware. Not only is it ecologically
beneficial, it's a much more pleasing dining experience.
