Hello and welcome to Nouveau Raw (New Raw). I created this site in 2008, mostly as a place to keep track of my recipes and to share them with friends and family, and maybe expose them to a bit of raw foodism. In 2009 my husband and I graduated from Living Light Culinary Art Institute which added fuel to my already burning passion for preparing healthy dishes. I have since learned that raw foods are my culinary soulmate.
I hope you’re able to find your way around my site with ease. The majority of recipes are self-created and others are adapted or translated from some amazing chefs. I don’t proclaim to be a 100% raw foodist, nor do I suggest that a person must be so.
Finding foods that nourish your body, give you fuel, strength, and peace… well shoot, it’s all so very individualized. I personally don’t feel that there is just one way of eating for every person. I also feel that as we age, our body’s needs change and therefore so should our diets.
In the past five plus years of my raw journey (was 100% for one year of that), I found that my body responded better when I incorporated some cooked dishes. I would say that I now eat approximately a 75% (which fluctuates) raw diet. While exploring raw foods I have become very aware of every morsel that I put in my mouth, and that alone has been a huge blessing. Now I read every label, purchase organic whenever possible and try to stay conscious about what and how I eat. And through this process I really have learned so much about myself and my body.
One last thing, if and when you decide to make and serve some of these dishes, there is really no reason to announce that they are are raw before they get tasted. After all we don’t say ” here is a cooked dinner ” we just put it on the table and enjoy.
If you would like to contact me, please do so through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many blessings… Amie Sue
