-Freshly made tofu and shallots
-live lettuce (root still attached)
-purple potatoes with thyme
green zebra tomatoes with Bufala mozarella and aged balsamic
-handmade spinach pasta with raw manchego
-drizzled with pumpkin oil

Raw Brazil Nut Milk

My philosophy is to introduce more live food where you can. Sometimes I just don't have time to prepare and the best I can do is peanut butter bumpers. But recently I found a way to make it a bit healthier - more live. I made raw brazil nut milk and cut up banana on top - yum! Here's how:
5 cups water
2 1/2 cups brazil nuts
Blend on high
strain through a nut milk bag (amazon would have it)
