332 days to book launch!
Today I attended a pot luck. Here is what I made, and some easy recipes that are popular at a pot luck!
Wikipedia meaning of pot luck: A potluck is a gathering of people where each person or group of people may do contribute a dish of food prepared by the person or group of people, to be shared among the group. To the Irish potluck was a meal with no particular menu. It appears to have originated in the 19th century in western USA. But the term pot-luck appeared in 16th century England.
One of my most favorite things to do is eat food with great people!
I made a raw Chocolate Pecan Pie, ingredients are pecans, coconut oil, real salt, vanilla, maple syrup and cacao powder. It's from an Earth Diet daily recipe!
But I made it into a brownie instead of a pie! The greatest thing about raw is no baking involved! Just mixing everything together and done ready to eat bliss!
And we had it with Vanilla Cashew Ice Cream! New recipe in new book!
Jody made a turkey soup from Thanksgiving left overs and added the fiber of a juice we made. A great way to use juice pulp! Add it to soups it's delicious!
We also had grapes. And some enjoyed red wine.
Would you like to have a healthy pot luck at your place and invite your friends and family?
Tonight I invited my friend Emily (who is also a mentor for the Earth Diet Personalized Programs). Here is how our conversation went:
Dome = a place to meditate in Fairfield Iowa.
And it's as easy as that! People love pot lucks! It's always fun to see the variety of what everyone brings.
We finished the evening with ginger tea to help digestion and settle it all down ;)
Recipes that always do well at a pot luck (and are easy to transport) are:
2. Salads like Superfood Kale Salad
4. Cumin Quinoa
Take photos of your pot luck and share them online at www.facebook.com/theearthdiet or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org it's always so fun to see what other people are eating!
