Bring on the NEW...

Do you like Greek food? Ever had RAW Greek food? If you’re not familiar with the work of UK gourmet raw food chef Gina Panayi, you’re in for a treat... I first encountered Gina’s work a few years back at the fabulous Food of Life festival in Brighton. This was a festie based around raw/living foods, eco-living, conscious lifestyles, musical magic and more...Gina had a stall there, selling her Raw Greek, that place was PACKED that day, with all the finest raw foods the UK has to offer...chocolates, crackers, juices, cakes, salads, smoothies – you name it...and the unanimous favourite of EVERYONE I spoke to was the Raw Greek creations...perhaps it’s the novelty factor, perhaps it’s the love that Gina and her crew clearly infuse their food with...perhaps it’s the amazing taste combinations...or all of the above...whatever it is, Gina’s food is definitely LOVED and she now has a Raw Greek recipe book out, so you can learn how to recreate her masterpieces with your own Vitamix ;) We now have her book for sale in the RawReform Store – as far as we know, we’re actually the only people selling it Stateside at the, you might wanna get in quick before your other raw foodie friends get a copy and sparkle their tastebuds to pleasure paradise at your next potluck ;) Gina’s book is stuffed with raw vegan versions of Moussaka, Stuffed Vine Leaves, Frappe, Cinnamon Biscuits, Meatballs and costs $22.95 and you can see more about it HERE.

On December the 31st I had:

3 cups water

1 pint green lettuce/fennel/cucumber/mizuna/ginger/apple/celery juice
handful of cherries
1 mango
bowl of raw granola with sliced fresh banana and apple, with fresh macadamia milk and a chocolate bliss ball on the side ;)
2 cups water
1 pint tatsoi/cucumber/mizuna/celery/kale/fennel/apple/bell pepper juice
bowl of Mr Monarch’s outrageous cacao creation…mysterious concoction including at least dried apricots, hemp seed, cracao and goji berries…the rest is…an enigma… ;)

Oh hear ye, oh hear ye…myself and the Monarch were due to be speaking in the fair town of Adelaide upon this very weekend that does greet us next.

Consequently, it is intended that we shall convene instead upon the day of Saturday January the 26th, in the afternoon, with a suitable Adelaide venue to be announced…thanking you in advance for your understanding and we do hope to see your shiny buttons there in a few weeks…in the meantime, we are delighted to be presenting presently in the presence of the pleasant in Byron Bay…Saturday the 12th verily shall see us heartily expound the rewards of a raw lifestyle from 6.30pm at the Ambaji Wellness Centre…more details HERE
