Raw Lunch Box Treats… And More…

i didn't get any time in the studio working on my re-invented wrap.

we've had  a few more raw pasta dishes last week with different sauces: pesto, and olive-pesto – yummy!!!

and because i like experimenting i made up a spread to go on the sandwiches for everyone's school lunches. i pureed some soaked cashew nuts with raw beetroot, some lemon thyme, soya sauce, salt and agave syrup. i love the colour of it…

with some of the left-over almond meal i invented a little dessert by mixing cocoa powder, desiccated coconut, agave syrup and a pinch of nutmeg into it…

it seems that my dry spell in the kitchen is over – i feel so inspired!

and here is something else i wanted to share with you. an article that a friend of ours wrote on his blog centre for social poetry – re-imagine the world. it gave me a different perspective for all the recent natural and social upheavals and is called
