Happy Sunday loves!
Last night was the second raw vegan potluck that I plan on hosting once a month and, though hard to imagine possible, this one was even more fun than last time. Practice makes perfect right?
I chose to experiment with the amount of people that I’d let attend so this time we were with a bigger group of people (about 25), which was a lot of fun. I love hosting this potlucks because it’s a great opportunity to meet like-minded people (the theme of my life these days <3), swap tips and stories, and of course share great food (and beg for the recipe afterwards!).
I always love a diverse crowd and yesterday was no exception. Moms, students, boys, girls, vegans, meat-eaters, seasoned & new raw foodies, Dutch & internationals (Cyprus, US, hell even Kazachstan was represent!). I saw a lot of networking going on too which is always a good sign, people exchanging facebook and email addresses so we can built community and contacts <3
Afterwards a group of us went to BOB (bewust onbewust) in Club Lite to dance off some calories . I will do another post on Conscious Clubbing very soon as I’ve discovered some more great events. BOB was fun in that there was coca-tea, barefoot dancing, bodypaint and magnificent hippie-outfits, but in my opinion wasn’t really ‘conscious clubbing’ as there was served alcohol, a lot of people didn’t take of their shoes, and the music became increasingly house & techno (which, don’t get me wrong, I love, but it creates a different atmosphere).
I danced so hard that I injured my foot and can only limp today ….
My input: Italian flax crackers (gold flax, tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, olives, oil, spices, fresh basil) with wasabi-mustard mayonaise
& Pecan Praline Bar (now bits…) from my eBook Raw Chocolate Made Easy (always a hit!)
Wasabi-Mustard Mayonaise (raw, vegan)
* 1 cup cashews, soaked overnight (or for a few hours)
* 3/4 cup water
* 2 Tbsp mustard
* 1 (or more) Tbsp wasabi paste
* juice of half a lemon
* 4 Tbsp olive oil
* 1 Tbsp coconut oil
* dash of salt
Blend all ingredients except oils until smooth. Pour in the oil while blending. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
This mayonaise is nice n tangy and goes well with raw veggies, crackers or poured over your salad!
My beautiful friend Izabela brought her homemade line of gypsy tops which all of us girls went beserk over! Her tops and shirts are really one-of-a-kind, made from recycled t-shirts, and all very bohemian sexy. This is seriously the kind of clothing I had been dreaming of for years: very affordable (I like clothes but I think it’s a waste to spend a lot of money on clothing. There’s places to travel and books to read!), one-of-a-kind, feminine, and environmentally-friendly.
Bambos wanting to be one of the girls…

I will do a post on Izabela and her brilliant clothes soon!
