The Art of Intuitive Eating
Holiday Raw Food Feasts!
Holiday meals can be wonderfully healthy, brimming with vital nutrients to keep us feeling our best. The following menus have been created to make sumptuous raw food feasts! Use as they're presented, mix and match recipes, or combine them with your own specialties for a totally new and exciting menu.

One of the great things about raw food recipes is that a salad can be reduced to make a side dish, or an appetizer can be expanded into a salad. If you need to keep the salad simple, serve up a big bowl of mixed fresh greens with your favorite dressing. Other ideas might be to make two entrees and skip the soup or appetizer. These menus are just a portion of what's available in the archive, so there are many more choices.

Make transitional vegetarian feasts with both raw and cooked foods, like baked or steamed veggies, squashes, yams, and gently simmered rice, quinoa, potatoes, lentils, homemade bread, and so on. Some of our dishes can be made a day in advance, like the pickles, soup, or seed cheese, and they often become even tastier the next day. Raw soups can be warmed, or lightly cooked, to meet your needs. You may wish to begin a meal with an energizing fresh juice, and end with your favorite tea or drink.

Single raw food recipes can be used to complement traditional cooked foods that are family favorites. My cousins from South Africa like to include the Festive Red Cabbage Salad as part of their holiday fare. Knowing they are making this salad bridges the miles, and brings us closer together in spirit.

Our dream is to feel the joy, to savor the abundance in our lives, and to be at peace and have heart-warming, memorable experiences with family, friends, and loved ones.

Our lives,
so seemingly small,
ripple out
to the whole universe
as tiny whispers
like the sounds
of butterfly wings,
and the clear voice
of the living truth.
The Healing Feast is about:
healthful practices,
following our intuition,
& eating life-giving foods.

It's about:
transformation, joy,
inspiration, peace, gratitude,
and soulful beauty.

It's about:
living a life filled
with abundance and love,
& giving what is the best
within ourselves to the world.
"A smile from the heart is a gift to receive."
