Thoughts: Today was the opening of The Earth Diet Cafe at Big Al's Family Fitness!
It was a very busy day of juicing, sampling, eating raw desserts, and chatting with the customers about all kinds of things health related - digestion, beet juices, cleaning the bowels, eating what nature intended, juicing, getting back to basics, whole ingredients, benefits of raw foods and so much more :)
The people loved the raw sweets and some could not believe they had no sugar in them! People were learning that we don't need sugar anymore to make our food taste good or sweet!
The favourites among the people were Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (A alternative to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups if you live in USA), the Raw Chocolate Brownie, Manny's Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie and the Raw Cheesecake made from macadamia and cashews (my new favourite!) We sold out of both of the pies and the samples were all sampled! I am grateful to be able to share authentic healthy options to this community. My goal is to expand worldwide so that these are available to everyone. It will of course take some time and preparation!
We also sampled juices; most people were courage to try the vegetable juice; the beet, carrot, celery and ginger juice. I explained how the beet lifts the waste of the bowel wall, sometimes the accumulated waste that has been there for many years! And that juicing provides us with the most nutrition than any other food as it enters our body at cellular level :)
We also did orange and grapefruit juice, carrot apple and ginger juice, cucumber apple and ginger juice (for the gall bladder), plain orange juice, lemon grapefruit and orange (a good digestive detox!), parsley carrot celery and garlic (feel the energy!) and strawberry orange and grapefruit which is so sweet and delicious :)
The blogs I wrote for Day 310 and Day 309 have a list of the entire menu and list of ingredients including the benefits of each ingredient.
There are so many delicious, healthy, raw foods out there for us to discover and create - the earth provides us with everything we need and more - naturally :)
Have a beautiful day beautiful beings!
