Raw Foods Reassessment

Not to jump OFF the raw foods bandwagon here, but I have a complaint/concern/addendum. I'm sure some of you thought I was a little ridiculous in my enthusiasm for eating raw. [Roll eyes... there she goes again].

But, just so you don't think I'm still overboard on the raw foods, I tried today, a Karyn's Raw Cranberry Cookie. It was made of (I should say, IS, because it still exists since I didn't finish it) cranberries, cashews, almond butter, dates, and honey. It had a weird pasty taste to it. I didn't finish. I put it away and got myself something COOKED to eat. I think I'd rather eat all the ingredients separately. Why try to make raw food look/taste/behave like cooked food? I don't understand. What are we trying to hide by forming cookies out of it?? Let it be what it is. (clearly at this point, I've lost my sense of who I'm talking to).

So this blog wasn't a waste, in more important news, Britney Spears buys the love of men, and Miss Nevada turns down Girls Gone Wild for Playboy.

I know! Raw food "treats" are so hit-or-miss. It is a weird thing for alternative food to impersonate the real deal. Like all the soy products shaped and spiced to be like hamburgers or chicken or salisbury steak. It's so processed it's probably worse than the meat! (Though, I am a sucker for the Boca chick patties--but I consider them a treat, not a good source of nutrition.)

Anyway, yeah, I don't know about a raw cookie that's formed with actual butter (not almond butter or something)--that does sound yucky.

But I still want to take a raw "cooking" class someday!
