Your social life does not have to end simply because you now eat the healthiest cuisine in the world. Have a fun Raw food party!
One of the reasons people (this includes your family and friends) are intimidated by Raw food is because they know literally nothing about it, such as how to make it, what to eat, and most importantly, “why.” By now, you might know it’s really simple, but your family and friends probably don’t. A Raw Party gives people a chance to actually taste the food (and takes the mystery out of making it)! Sounds obvious, but people really have no idea what the heck you’re talking about until they try some of these delicious recipes. That’s when the light bulb goes on. Prior to that they assume you mean veggie platters and fruit plates.
One of the best ways to get them involved is to have a party where you teach them how to make Raw food (whether it’s 3 people or 10 or more). I find it hard to believe that anyone would turn down an afternoon or evening of eating the healthiest food in the world (maybe alongside a glass of organic, vegan wine). Promise your friends loads of fun and delicious food to eat.
Here is what you do:
Set the date, invite your guests, tell everyone to bring an apron and a few pieces of Tupperware for leftovers, plan a fantastic, easy and fun raw menu, buy the ingredients, print the recipes so everyone has a copy to take home, put out your favorite Raw books for optional browsing, play fun music, drink organic vegan wine (optional, but I offer it at my parties), and have a great time. Your guests will make the recipes, taking turns with the steps, while you guide them and talk about all the amazing benefits of eating Raw.
This will be a party that everyone will remember because everyone will have a great time.
