PS My sisters and I decided to go raw for the New Year. Interestingly, I was all of a sudden stunned and challenged about what I want to eat. The thought of preparing raw food was extremely daunting. I didn’t want to just eat a boring salad with no substance. I wanted something with nuts and I wanted it savory.

I stumbled upon a raw food book that I purchased from the Raw Kitchen Magician when I was in San Diego last year. I adapted her “peanut sauce” for this recipe. She makes eating raw so effortless. The results are amazing. Now I am excited and can’t wait for my next meal. I am presently soaking walnuts for my raw pasta and lacos, nurritos, (spelling on purpose) and casseroles. Stay tuned!
