Saturday was a great day filled with all raw food and amazing people. Still buzzin’ from the raw food workshop, the first guests for my monthly raw vegan potluck arrived.
Seems like more and more males are finding their ways to raw & living foods (and my potlucks) too, yay!
Let me tell you – it is quite fun when there is some raw food chefs coming to the potlucks as well. Raw food heaven! And just a shout out for these people – they know who they are- I love how creative and versatile they are. One owns his own raw vegan cafe. The other makes her own line of Gypsy clothing, while yet another is about to start raw catering and high-teas in Amsterdam. Amazing!
Raw cherry cheesecake with coconut macadamia whipped cream – seriously one of the best things I’ve eaten in my entire life…!
I feel so blessed to have found my raw food tribe here in Amsterdam. Not sure if I ever mentioned this on the blog but for some time I felt quite lonely here, not sure if there were more people that shared my interests and perspective on life. Moving to a different continent was always on my mind (ok, still is sometimes). But I am happy that I got fed up enough and started activelt attracting like-minded people. I put myself out there, started hosting potlucks and connecting with people at places I like to come (like the farmers market, which turned out to be a fertile breeding ground for raw hippies – who knew! ).
In a few short months time I feel like I got a new extended family. People of all walks of life, ages and ethnicities. Raw food is certainly a common denominator but there is so much more we share. Love for life and being free-spirited, to name a few.
If you feel for making some new cool free-spirited friends, come join the next potluck!
I am skipping one month in lieu of my Bali travels (countdown: 3 days!) so the next one is June 2nd.
Weather permitting, this one will be in Amsterdam’s famous Vondelpark, which is a 10m walk from my house!
