Article Excerpt:


A chilly winter night is just as good for a tasty raw slaw as any other, in my opinion.  Especially when I have this snazzy new julienne peeler to use.  I've been using it like mad!  I think I've had something julienned at every meal since I got this thing on Friday.  One thing is for sure, it is inspiring me to eat more raw vegetables. 

Speaking of raw, I had a fun day of uncooking with A-K of the fabulous blog Swell Vegan over the weekend.  We had joined forces a few months back and made slightly less-than-fabulous gluten free pumpkin scones (oh well).  Not letting our lack of stellar baking success hinder us, we decided to get together once again and make a raw feast!  As it turns out, we are both one of the only people we each know that is really open to the idea of making totally raw meals, so it is a good match.  Plus, we are nearly neighbors - we live only blocks apart - so it was the perfect way to spend a Sunday.  The internet really does bring people together!
