As much as I love this time of year, it’s hard to shake a constant feeling of anxiety running in the background. Which is really stupid considering my shopping is done and I do not have to worry about hosting any family events at my house this year … a perk to having a completely non-child-proofed house and toddler nieces and nephews. Trying to shop, drive and just function with all the holiday madness is tense while avoiding accidents and stressed, crazed people.
I am looking forward to bringing raw dishes to our family gatherings this year and have been researching which recipes to bring. I was bummed that our local Whole Foods had a raw themed holiday class this week and I couldn’t attend, but I’m signed up for a couple of raw classes and looking forward to a raw foods fair at Whole Foods in January. Anyway, some recipes I’m considering:
I was good and raw for breakfast and lunch, but tonight is a non-raw dinner night trying another Trader Joe’s meatless vegan crutch product.
Because the phony chicken was already in a BBQ sauce, I added a great chipotle apple BBQ sauce we got in Apple Hill and it added a lot of kick!
The fake chicken surprisingly tasted a lot like chicken, but the texture was not really like chicken at all. I liked it, I was not looking for an exact chicken experience, but a flavorful, healthy and easy source of protein. However, the texture was throwing hubby of a bit.
