Raw Week: The Return

The Chef: Colleen

The Menu: A really, really, really awesome raw salad. Colleen busted out a delicious spinach and mixed-greens salad with big, satisfying chunks of avocado and slivered red onion. Her homemade flax-lemon-hemp dressing perked up our taste buds, and a side dollop of Zukay's Garlic Dill Relish added a zesty flavor.

The Goods: So, maybe you remember a little something about our whole team going to Expo West over the weekend to try out tons and tons of new, awesome, vegan products? Yeah, let's just say that after eating more samples than any group of people should be allowed to in a three-day period, we are all excited to bring back Raw Week this week! We'll be chopping, blending, and not-cooking to our hearts' content, and, we hope, making amends with our over-taxed digestive tracks. Oh, and maybe we'll have some sneak peeks from the amazingly adorable Ani Phyo's forthcoming book, Ani's Raw Food Desserts.

I'm eating raw this week too (just for a cleanse). What a coincidence that I picked VegNews raw week! Food looks great!
