Posted January 9th, 2012 - 8:05 pm by from Oslo, Norway (Permalink)
Raw food potluck - means bring your own Raw food ingredients or preperared Raw food and drinks.

Raw food is food that is not heated above 41-42 C thus preserving enzymes, vitamins and other important elements.

This event is meant for those who either are into Raw food or would like to experience Raw food.

To clarify, this event will not contain any meat, fish, seafood, alkohol or any other cooked or processed food.

This is organized as a potluck meaning it does not cost any money, but the food and drinks will be prepared from what the guest bring with them.

We have a juicing machine which we plan to make fresh juice, a blender which is planned for green smoothies and a dehydrator that dries food below 41 C. The dehydrator items will be prepared by us in advance as it takes 12-24 hours to make items raw food crackers, raw bread and raw pizza crust (for raw pizza).

Suggestions to items to bring:

Fruits like apple, pear, papaya, mango, bananas or other favorite fruit. The fruits should be ripe or medium ripe.

Berries like blueberries, strawberries or other berries

How much to bring ?
