Video: A Green Drink for the American Spirit
Dear brothers and sisters,
We consider green drinks the enduring legacy of the raw food movement. There is something almost magical about putting lettuce, kale, celery, chard, parsley along with chopped beets, carrots and garlic in a blender. Fill it with spring water and press the button. Voila! You have a green soup! It is so alive and beneficial. I make a green drink the center piece of my meals.
We follow this a talk by Ben with Growveg for those of us with limited space for growing. Ben shows how to utilize containers for plants and herbs. As always he bubbles with enthusiasm that’s infectious- so no more excuses, let’s get growing, brothers and sisters.
Then there is a video showing how to make a delightful cheese from almonds.
We follow it with a recipe for gazpacho a traditional raw soup from Spain.
Your comments and suggestions are always most welcome.

Recipe: Almond Cheese | How to make vegan cheese
1cup blanched and peeled almonds
2tbsp lemon juice
3tbsp olive oil
1/2cup cold water
1 clove of garlic
This doesn't make a lot so the cheese I displayed at the end was actually double the recipe.
As for the oil at the end, it was just olive oil and rosemary blended together. Enjoy!
