Raw Food Workshop with Meghan Telpner

 After trudging along Queen street on this very snowy day - I was looking forward to a. getting inside and dry and b. eating some delicious food with good company.

I adore Meghan's blog - "Making Love in the Kitchen" so I was really anticipating this workshop - there were about dozen hungry souls gathered around the table - which already had kale chips and crudites on it, not to mention water flavoured with lavender or lemongrass, plus some crackers....

It was a treat to sample a delicious green smoothie, healthy "hot" chocolate, green dip, an amazing caulifower couscous, zucchini and kelp noodle with pesto dish - obviously I was too busy scarfing that down to take a photo plus, people there were CHOCOLATES for dessert and fruit "roll ups" - which tasted far better than their commercial version.

Throughout there was lots of helpful information, including benefits of such superfoods as Maca, spirulina, chia cacao and laughter. While we were there our leader was being filmed! She is already an nutrition expert on the Marilyn Dennis show.

I couldn't resist buying Irish Moss, a nut mylk bag (which I have been searching for) kelp noodles and da da da DAH! - a spiralizer!!! Finally! Made by Paderno - it was reasonably priced - looks sufficiently chic and Italian and yes, I already tried it out with a cucumber.  Next year I aspire to go on her retreat to St. Lucia - that would be fab.

She has more classes coming up so be sure to check our her blog...www.makingloveinthekitchen.ca
