    ps_ I just invited a friend over for dinner yesterday and she got lost because Google gave the wrong directions. So, if you are coming from 580 and it says to turn left onto Mountain and then left onto Daisy... IGNORE THAT. You do make a turn left even though it looks like you shouldn't, only, after you turn left, you make an immediate right onto the street- Davenport. Continue up Davenport, turn left onto Cunningham, then right onto Fair Ave. (Make sure to look at the streets on the map).

    For all those attending this event. As I am not into supporting cutting trees down for disposable plates, please bring your own plates and forks. That way, the 20 + attending (I invited others through another website as well) will all be taken care of... Thanks!

    That first link doesn't appear to give any photographs. Hard for me to want to try a recipe without any notion of how it could look. Just my thought. I really like the recipes here: http://www.rawfoodrecipes.com -- Of course I use dates, figs, seeded raisins or home-dried bananas anywhere it calls for agave, stevia, molasses, etc -- dried fruit always works just as well.

    Thanks for posting though. It's good for people to look at sites to find new recipes on a regular basis.

    Ocean -- On the other hand, a potluck of nothing but salads is boring, so I do see your point. Although, at potlucks I love discovering new ways to make a salad exciting.

    Jen -- I'm working with my mom now on her diet, and will be doing so closely after the move. I'll see if removing dairy from her diet has an effect on her arthritis as well. It'd be interesting to note, for sure.

    Ocean,

    I agree and disagree. Personally, I think everyone should always bring a small salad and something else, to every potluck, because without the salad, people's digestion isn't going to handle everything else that people can make. For example, if someone brought pie, another brought sweet balls of dried fruit/nuts, someone else brought nut cheese, another person brought raw sprouted bread, another a pate, and noone brought salad... We'd all feel like a ton of bricks, lol. Just sayin'

    Chriss,

    This is the first potluck at my house, Since it is 11-3, you can come to this one after 1.

    Jenn,

    I will be preparing desserts that are sweetened only with dried fruit. Not sure what others are bringing though. Mindful that many have unique dietary requirements, i'll be sure to have everyone describe what they brought and mention the ingredients.

    i can't do before 1.
    is it always at this time?

    Do you include raw honey in this classification? WRT your mother - I have a similar reaction to dairy. I took a lot of medication for over 20 years before realizing that my debilitating, chronic daily "arthritis" was actual inflammation caused by occasional dairy (or dairy slipped into things).

    My reactions vary, depending on the type of sugar, but two things remain consistent for me with all refined sugars -- splitting headache that lasts for several hours (immediate reaction), and muscle cramps, usually in my legs occurring several hours after eating and lasting a couple hours up to a couple days. My husband reacts to stevia powder, agave and corn syrup with severe reactions, although different from mine. My mother's arthritis acts up when she consumes any refined sugars.

    Jenn -- Refined is anything that involves removing part of the original structure that it had in nature, cooking it, etc. If it's been turned into a syrup and then sat about on a shelf for three months, enzyme activity is a moot point, same for crystallized sugar. In nature, fruits come with a certain ratio of a certain form of sugar to their relative amounts of fiber, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium, etc. Altering food destroys nature's balance.

    Raederle - how do you define "refined" sugar? What sort of reaction do you have to these sugars?

    Louise -- will do. Just curious, if you could tell me, how do you know you are gluten intolerant? (I'm curious because so many people these days say that they are, and I want to know where this comes from. For me, I know I have an issue with sugar because of the direct and immediate reactions I have to refined sugars -- such as agave.)

    Hope to attend meet new RAW people! Still learning about how to make fun uncooking recipes.

    Of course everyone should bring a dish prepared the way they like to prepare it, but please let me and my husband know if your dish contains agave, molasses, honey, stevia, xylitol, coconut sugar, yaccon, etc -- Allergic relations are harsh and rapid for us, even in small amounts, especially agave. Any recipe can use dates or figs instead.

    I would like to attend, but can never come Sunday mornings, as I am in a church choir. Hope you have other meet up times in the future!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
