Update on Potluck lunch July2009
Another very inspiring meeting for all the participants! Dr. Nandita Shah was present for this meeting. The meeting started with a cooking demo by Mrs. Lakshmi Giriraj. She showed us the entire procedure for the Coconut Kheer. She showed us the exact measurements for all the ingredients, cooking time and also the way to make almond milk and coconut milk. This was followed by the demo of how to make Green smoothie by Dr. Rupa Shah. This was a very simple but tasty and healthy raw recipe. Everyone got to taste the green smoothie made from Banana, Papaya, coriander and spinach leaves. Sure it was all dark green colour, full of fibre and very tasty. This was followed by lunch. All the participants brought very yummy dishes. After lunch, Dr. Nandita showed Dr. Lorraine Day's video. The video was so inspiring that many people were just in awe of the whole presentation! This was followed by a small talk by Vishal Bhardwaj, who is eating a lot of raw food and has helped himself of ill health. There were many interesting questions Vishal had to answer....a good inspiration for many of us who are thinking of increasing raw food in diet. Library project is taking off soon. We will keep you updated on this. Here are some pictures of the food....in small video film. I could not take all the pictures, as I was busy with the Green Smoothie demo.
