Let's have our first meeting!

Let's meet each other at Manhattan's Whole Foods on East 57th Street between Third and Second Avenues. There's a spacious eat in area on the second floor. Please purchase fruit or salad from Whole Foods so we will be welcome there in the future. Since raw fruit and salad is the basis of the 80/10/10 diet, let's support each other by having food together that falls within 80/10/10 guidelines.

    I was also very glad to get together with all of you. We don't often have a chance to share our food-related experiences with others on the same path. Last night was a great opportunity to do that.

      Great David, I'm so pleased you feel that way. It is very meaningful and satisfying to me to meet people like this and share our experiences.

    Had a really awesome time meeting up with you all last night, sorry I had to scoot off so early. Next time I will stick around for longer :-D Well I asked about the ingredients in the Rockin' Raw lasagna and Chris said the "cheese" is actually made from sunflower seeds (which aren't considered a nut apparently) and nutritional yeast, olive oil (i think that's it). The sauce consists of tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, lots of olive oil , sea salt, probably some other herbs. There is also "seed meat" which he said was sun dried tomatoes and sunflower seeds. He claims no cashews are in the recipe, but that may have changed since he left a few weeks ago. Anyway, it's delicious I've had it a number of times but as I mentioned last night a fairly heavy dish, which I would personally limit to maybe on special occasions. :-D

      Thanks for your investigative reporting Donna. :). I was so glad to meet you in person after knowing you online a little while from another group. If you are ever in Manhattan with extra time to spare give me a try. :)

    Looking forward to our get together this evening! Just to point out, ataulfo mangoes are in at Whole foods and they are REALLY GOOD.... :-)

      Great Donna! While we are mentioning REALLY GOOD items at Whole Foods I want to add that the organic pummelos are fantastic too. They are more difficult to pull apart than grapefruit so a little harder to eat gracefully but they are super sweet and delicious.

      March 8, 2014

    • Donna S.

      Oh yep, had those last week and they were fantastic, as are the honey tangerines. :-D

    Just a reminder. Even if you aren't 80/10/10 please only purchase and eat with us foods that are 80/10/10. So this is any raw fruit, raw vegetable, raw nut or raw seed. If you have a question on this feel free to post a comment.
