Aubree will again be hosting the potluck in her space at Jewel in the Lotus on Saturday, May 4, starting at 5 PM, continuing the ongoing monthly potlucks on the first Saturday of every month on Madison’s East side at Jewel in the Lotus ( http://jewelinthelotusyoga.com/ ).
Our usual potluck guidelines will apply:
First off, we very much want to welcome our new members and those curious about the raw and living foods lifestyle. We encourage you to bring something very simple - some fresh, organic seasonal fruit, some cut up organic veggies, or some raw trail mix you can put together, for example. (If you need more ideas, contact Ryan by using the “contact” link on the left side of web page.) More information for newcomers to our group can be found here: http://www.meetup.com/The-Madison-Raw-Food-Meetup-Group/messages/boards/thread/7663889
For each person attending bring one dish with at least eight servings to share, along with the appropriate serving utensils. One can reasonably expect this to cost somewhere around $15.00.
Please bring all of your own silverware, dishes, and cups that you will be using.
Please use organic ingredients whenever possible to prepare your dish, for increased nutrition, elimination of pesticides and genetically modified foods, and most importantly for your body and for the planet!
If dehydrating or warming your food, please do so at or below 105 degrees to ensure that the enzymes of the food remain intact and active.
Bring a copy of your recipe to place by your dish, so that others can copy it if they like what they tasted, and also so they can be able to make informed choices, should they not want to eat certain ingredients due to sensitivities or other personal reasons (such as nuts or Bragg's Liquid, for example). We will then post a message on the Madison Raw Food Meetup website where everyone can respond to and add their recipes for each particular potluck to share them with others.
At the end of our potlucks we often exchange our leftovers. Bring some extra containers if you want to join in on the fun.
Voluntary donations towards the costs of using our Meetup web presence ($144 annually) are greatly appreciated. It was suggested by our members that we should consider donating a dollar or two every potluck, which would quickly help us meet our costs.
