I enjoy many raw food meals, but the raw pea soup doesn't appeal. Like the salads, but falafel is truly yummy !

some of these look okay, thanks

I must admit, that a few of these attractive meals are a bit unusual.

I loved all of these recipes except the pumpking pizza recipe. I love pumpkin, but that one just doesn't appeal to me.

Well these look and sound great! Will be trying a few. Thanks

I forgot to mention that all beans have both a high fat and fibre content. This is why when served w/non-white rice and a good savoury veggie sauce, such as happens every day in billions of homes in India, Mexico, all of Central & South America, as well as Africa, people get by just fine, w/little dental decay, cancer, or other sugar and processed non-foods diets.

Never eat cereals. Pastured eggs and bacon with sauteed greens for me.
