"Good chefs, like artists, are visionaries. You have to have a vision of the taste, the look, the smell of your masterpiece; you hold it in your mind and make it materialize."

Raw punks

Getting a kid to eat raw isn't difficult. All you have to do is invite a crowd of punks, give them an apple-peeler-corer-slicer gadget and a sack of apple. Then step back. They'll figure it out.

This group of 10 homeschoolers from three families prove the point. 15 pounds of apples later, they were gleefully making alphabets with the peels (any that weren't being eaten like worms, that is), taking turns with the peeler, and teaching each other the nuts-and-bolts of just how that gizmo worked.
They also shared a blender full of Green Smoothie - mango, pineapple, ginger, chard - several came back for seconds. They're on their way to being raw foodies!
What a hoot to listen and watch from behind the camera. There's nothing like a gathering of homeschooled punks on a sunny day for seeing just how real learning happens.

And when I can help feed those active brains real food at the same time, that's a bit of heaven!
