If there was ever a time when I wished I hadn't forgotten my camera, as well as a time when a camera probably wouldn't have done justice, this past Veg Group meeting would have been it! (I did try taking some cell phone photos, but as I don't have texting in my phone plan, those would have been mighty expensive pics! Here are two raw goodie pics I did take at home, before the event).
Our speaker, Roland Herrmann, a wine-importer (biodynamic - yeah!) and 25-year veteran of the restaurant industry, delighted us with a veritable feast of raw foods. From herbed ricotta cheese, to zucchini pasta with mushroom marinara sauce (the sauce wasn't raw, actually, to prove his point that you can slowly adapt to the raw lifestyle), to guacamole on homemade crackers, and finally to the piece de resistance, (yes, raw!) sweet potato "pie," we were delighted by the food and his presentation. We learned about dehydrators, juicers, sprouters, Spiralizers, and all kinds of nifty toys, but also about the health-side of things. Here are some of the websites he gave us to find more info and buy those cool toys ;) Stick around for next month's meeting info about Dr. Neustatter! Mark your calendars for May 2nd, 11:30 at The Loft in Downtown Fredericksburg.
