Day 11

Well, today I had my Mom make the recipes while I watched. She was so inspired and felt so good from my last meals that she wanted to try some. I guess they were out of raw food recipe books at the library, but the vegan books she got had some raw recipes. I thought what my mom made turned out good, but my Dad went to taco bell afterwards. lol Anyways, my Mom made raw spaghetti (which turned out ok but it was a bit too garlicky-I told her to add the garlic in slowly, and not all at once...maybe she will listen to me next time!) and an apple pie. The apple pie was really good, but it was just apples with cinnamon and some nuts. I think people get disappointed with raw foods because they expect it to be like the name...but it's something totally different. Raw Lasagna isn't really lasagna, raw apple pie isn't really apple pie...but the few I have had that actually taste like the real thing are cheesecakes, ice cream, fettucine sauces, and the chocolate pudding. I think it's best to keep an open mind so you aren't disappointed. I hope my mom isn't discouraged though, it was only her first time making raw food. It takes a bit of time to get used to, especially if you have actually cooked regular stuff before (which may be why I'm pretty good at it, as I have nothing to really compare it to!) I'm about a day behind, so I will post tomorrow about today's recipes!
