Eating in the Raw!

Life is grand, do you know that! Living is truly wonderful and being able to share with people around you is an amazing blessing.  Several years ago I went to a vegetarian potluck with two of my friends.  I brought whole penne pasta with veggies tossed in a cashew cream sauce.  I spotted this very cute guy standing across the way and I told my friend, “I want to meet him, make that happen.”  Well, 7 years later we are best friends, truly connected to the hip.  Jarid Manos is the founder of a great organization, Great Plains Restoration Council,, and a great author, check him out at  The mission is to bring back open space, (prairies) and teach youth about egol0gical health.  He is an amazing person and has sacrificed a lot to make this earth a better please.

The other day he called and invited himself over for lunch.  Of course I said yes, but I said that it will be all raw.  He was elated, being a vegan, he is all up for trying new foods.


This what we had.  To the left Collard Greens Burritos and right Jicama Chips with Guacamole.  Rawdelicious!!!!!!!!!!!!  Today I will post the recipe for Jicama Chips and tomorrow I will give you the recipe for the Collard Green Burrito.  The burritos little labor intensive but worth every bite, but the jicama chips are quick and easy.


Jicama Chips

2 medium jicama sliced approximately 1/4 in. thick

1/2 t garlic powder

1/2 t sea salt or to taste

1 t smoked paprika

Place sliced jicama in plastic bag, sprinkle in garlic power, smoked paprika and sea salt and shake.  They are wonderful.

    Wow, this is exactly what I needed. I have been Vegan for 4 years now, but I never found anything quick and yummy to go with Guac – flax chips are good, but require prep or are expensive. This is a great and quick way to eat guac
