Holidays Bring us Together by kristin

Is that almond milk in the bottle? In the world of raw foods, we tend to be trailblazers. We may be the ones who help to change traditions, no matter where we are.

This can sometimes cause a bit of strife at family time, and yet it can also be a wonderful opportunity to bring us together in new ways. In families, it’s important to accept each other as we learn and grow and become more of who we really are. On my radio show Women’s Voices on local NPR affiliate KZYX, I recently interviewed Cathy Jo Cress, who coauthored a book with her daughter Kali Cress Peterson called Mom Loves You Best, Forging and Forgiving Sibling Relationships. I bring this up because during the holidays, when we get together with family, issues can come up, including the issue of what foods we eat.

One way to bring the holiday table up to date is to prepare delicious raw vegan recipes of classic favorites like pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes and gravy, and green beans almondine. And if the thought of studying recipe books and trying to figure out how to translate comfort and tradition into delicious raw foods seems daunting, we’ve come up with a solution. You can get the Best of New Holiday Traditions DVD from Living Light, and see our professional Living Light chefs preparing the most loved recipes from the past four years. 16 recipes step-by-step…and a printed recipe book and bonus DVD – foolproof ways to bring those comforting family recipes to the table.  And if you live near Fort Bragg,  join us for our Thanksgiving Potluck and World Peace Meditation, Thanksgiving Day from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM at Living Light Center. Bring a vegan or raw vegan dish to share with new friends. We’re creating our own traditions!
