Is this raw food? My raw pate smells like grilled hamburgers...

On Tuesday, June 19, 2007

Dinner- Home made Macadamia pate, 2 pieces of LifeForce Flax bread, 2 sliced tomatoes, 1/2 head celery, 1/4 cup Real Pickles Kimchee

I didn't want to make another trip to the store to find that perfect something to eat so I decided to make the pate with whatever I had available.  I made it with macadamia nuts, sun-dried tomatoes, celery, burdock root, fresh parsley, a bit of fresh ginger, and 1/4 clove of garlic all processed together.  It turned out great.  Oddly enough the aroma of the finished product reminded me (in a pleasant way) of chewed up in your mouth just before you swallow ketchup-mayonaise-white bread-grilled hamburger!

I received a inspiring email from a Raw Dish! reader Lesa NeSmith and she gave me permission to share it here...

"Stephen,
Thank you so much for writing your blog regularly.   I've been reading it more often recently and have been so glad to feel the support.  I'd been dealing with not feeling 'perfect' enough w/the whole 100% raw & gourmet/prepared foods idea.  I appreciate your honesty and knowing that I'm probably more 'normal'.  Aren't those 100% Raw Energy Bites great! They helped me through transition so much, those along with my favorite raw salsa which does have onions and stuff but I'm not perfect - I use it sparingly as a seasoning when I'm tempted or craving for things I no  longer choose to eat.  Sometimes just having something made by someone else helps me to feel a bit less different than the rest of the world - at least here in NYC, and my corner of Times Square.  Lesa NeSmith"
