Sayuri’s Raw Food Café
Just so you know that you don’t have to be raw foodies to enjoy all those meals just like you don’t have to be Italian to enjoy Italian dishes :) So sit back and relax, now we can enjoy all-raw scrambled “eggs” eggplant-bacon, “bread,” “butter,” many varieties of salads and dressings, fermented vegetables, fun salad sprinkles, serious fermented cheeses for Italian feasts, pizza, tortellini, ravioli, “caviar,” American burgers and chips, sandwiches, Indian curry and chapattis, Japanese tofu and super nori rolls, Asian favorites, sweet and sour, ramen noodles, Mexican lasagna, enchiladas and nachos, Middle Eastern falafel with hummus and harissa, tabouli, Spanish tapas and omelettes, chocolate banana pie, cheesecake and more in the most delicious, healthy, vibrant way!
What if “we are what we eat”? What if we become what we eat? Would you like to become a fresh, juicy, pure, sexy, vibrantly colorful, highly vibrational tomato rather than tomatoes in a tin?! The higher vibration a food has, the more you will shine! Yes!, Those raw, living foods have the potential to make you sparkle! All the dis-ease and problems arise because we become too disconnected to nature. So it is important to harmonize with it. Those foods are the medium between nature/universe and us. When we are aligned with nature, our body works perfectly as it should be and our body will (re-) gain the ability to eliminate the wastes and to rebuild or heal by itself. That’s the key for the optimum health!
So blossom your creativity and make your food exciting and attractive, and enjoy making sexy, juicy, delicious food‼ What food/energy do you want to become?
