Raw Macaroon October 1, 2007
Made Sarma‘s Blonde Macaroons for the NYC Rawfood Group MeetUp film screening event yesterday. It was a last minute decision that I didn’t have enough time to dehydrate them properly when I brought some to the potluck (taste fabulous already though, they were all gone in a few minutes!). But by midnight (12 hours dehydration) they were amazing!!! Better than any Macaroons I have ever tasted, and, do I have a thing for Macaroons! — funny, they never tasted as good as I wanted them to be until I tried this raw version… no sugar high to say the least, they are actually good for you (made of Almond flour, Shredded Coconut, Coconut Butter, Vanilla, Maple Syrup (does not effect blood sugar), and a dash of Sea Salt.)
The Film screening was for “Supercharge me, 30 Days Raw” by Jenna Norwood, quite funny, and it does touch many aspects of the rawfood lifestyle, if you are interested, watching it may help you get motivated.
For me, I started because I just couldn’t bear contributing to animal cruelties any longer (had real hard time separating all animals from my kitties as I grow to love them and understand them more and more), but it ended up being a really fascinating journey of researching and awareness.
This was my first time to a rawfood group meeting. It was so well organized by some really nice people, I even won a big bag of raw cacao powder at the raffle — never won anything in my life! Now I can make raw chocolate Macaroons

Don’t watch this if you don’t wish to feel grossed out about your dinner tonight. I find information powerful, but I have no cause — I have no need to stop others from doing what they want. It is just very heart breaking to know these things, and also shocking to know how little we know about the world we live in…
