Sell Your Stove – More Raw Recipes May 30, 2008

This installment of Sell Your Stove has recipes to please both Herbies (herbivores) and Carnies (carnivores) alike.  It has become painfully clear to most, that consuming raw and/or lightly steamed veggies and raw fruit improves your health exponentially.  Of course, the main hinderance has always been taste, and we are slaves to our tastebuds (those wiley suckers).  Even if the food item could cure whatever ails you (and most raw fruit & veggies can), most people would still decline to consume the produce because of that five letter word, TASTE.  Keeping all this in mind, I went on a research mission, searching the ends of the virtual world, trekking high and low, across rivers and lakes (okay, okay…perhaps I overstate) to come up with what I think are some pretty darn good recipies for Carnies who just can’t get past their you-know-what.  Here are some tastebud inspiring raw recipes to win over even the most hard core Carnie.
