On Saturday night, our Memphis veggie group, Food Awareness, got together at Vaughan's house for a raw potluck and screening of the raw-cumentary, Supercharge Me.
The film, a parody of Morgan Spurlock's Supersize Me, features a woman's journey through a 30-day detox/cleanse/raw food program. She enters the program to lose a few pounds, and not only does she accomplish her goal, but she discovers a whole new way to eat healthy. The film even shows a colonic in action! Gross, but intriguing! Now I kinda want one!
But poop stories aside, here's the delicious spread of raw foods prepared by our token raw foodist member Judith:
Besides a ton of fresh veggies and fruits, Judith prepared flax crackers, dehydrated onion "bread," mini raw "burgers," some tasty onion spread, pesto, and guacamole for dipping. Yum!
Stephanie from the Poopie Bitch blog made the prettiest, tastiest (mostly raw) sushi ever! She made the Spicy Tempeh Rolls from the Veganomicon. Can you believe this was only her third time rolling? She's got skills.
I brought a Raw Cashew Cheesecake from the latest issue Vegetarian Times:
This was so simple to prepare. The filling is made from cashews, lime juice, coconut oil, raw agave, and vanilla. And the crust is macadamia nuts, dried coconut, and medjool dates. It actually tastes a little like cheesecake, but mostly it's just yummy in its own way!
At the end of the night, Stephanie (Poopie Bitch) and I enjoyed some fresh fruit:
And special thanks to Vaughan for letting us meet at his house and use his movie room to screen Supercharge Me:
Also, I should probably thank my friend Greg for helping me create my new banner! Though I was a photojournalism major in college, I have since lost all my Photoshop skills. So Greg had to help me cut the picture out and stuff. By the way, that crazy cooking lady in the pic is me in a wig!
