Day 3 at CHI Sunday, May 1, 2011
Breakfast was served at 8AM. We were treated with the following killer menu:
Atifah's Raw Pancakes with Blueberry and Gojilicious Syrups
Raw Vegan Bacon
Fresh juice OJ
Raw almond milk
Right after breakfast the food prep stations were humming once again--the roar of Vitamixes and food processors and the hum of numerous dehydrators.
We had to prepare kale chips from 9:15-10:15AM
Team 1- Pizza Kale Chips
Team 2- Sour Cream Kale Chips
Team 3- Krispy Kale Chips (our team)
Team 4- Corn Chips
10:15-10:30am BREAK TIME
10:30-12:00pm FOOD PREPARATION BEGAN
TEAM 1- Not So Meat
TEAM 2- Mexican Refried Beans
TEAM 3- Taco Tostados (our team)
TEAM 4- Not So Cheese
Can you tell what was on the lunch menu?? Raw tostados!!! Talk about fantastic. These were so amazing and I am so glad I know how to prepare all of these wonderful recipes now.
When I got home one of the first things I made were the tostadas and the refried beans.
Take a look at our lunch menu:
Not So Meat
Spanish Rice "Sofrito" (recipe)
Not So Cheese
Mexican Refried Beans
Rejuvelac (sprouted quiona)
Even though the food was delicious and the people we were sharing it with were beyond amazing, I couldn't help but feel a little sad during lunch. After lunch we all would graduate and that meant going our separate ways as well.
Here are my graduation pictures:
