Last year I discovered a wonderful ‘tart’ recipe which is utterly delicious. I love its simple flavors and how easy it is to prepare. I was sold. There are several ways to modify this and each person I know that makes it does it a bit differently. My version contains three ingredients: almonds, agave syrup and berries. I chose to use the fresh strawberries I had just picked last week.
I’m intrigued with all genres of food. Living in a culinary community rich with health orientation AND foodie inclinations, there is something for everyone. The summer lends itself to lighter fare and last summer I was drawn to learn more about raw food. I do not mean just eating food without cooking it but rather the practice of ‘raw’ food. Raw foodism provides any prepared foods are done so at very low temperatures, usually using a dehydrator, to preserve all the naturally occurring nutrients and amino acids in food. It’s believed to be food in its best form.
