I’m turning raw (trying, trying!)

What’s the first thing every aspiring raw foodist should do? Find an organic vegetable supplier.

Because we eat our vegetables in an almost unaltered state, we need to make sure they are as clean and chemical-free as possible.   I’ve been buying produce from the organic section of the supermarket for a while now, but sometimes I wonder how authentic their organic claims are… Some say that the only way you can be sure you’re getting chemical-free vegetables is by finding a farmer/supplier that you trust.

During Asha Peri’s raw workshop last Saturday, Kristine Garcia of Emporium Antipolo was ready to meet-and-greet with us, armed with her basket of veggies and a wide smile. Been in touch with her since then and two days ago, I got my first organic goodie bag delivered to my doorstep, yay!

Ordered just the night before and delivered the day after– such impressive service from Emporium Antipolo. Not to mention the follow up text and online messages on recipe and storage tips… a BIG thank you Kristine!

With the trusty spiralizer I ordered from my raw teachers, Daniw and Asha, I got ready to make my first raw cucumber pasta at home…

It was actually very easy, and even my ever-so-excited niece (who’s 6) took a turn in spiralizing the cucumber (getting her to eat it after was another matter!).  Didn’t have time to make the sauce, so was very happy Kristine included some Raw Pesto in my Emporium Antipolo goodie bag:

Yumyumyum… 🙂

    1. There’s a provider in OLX.ph they sell it at 3.1k very pricey if you ask me… although I haven’t really tried looking in department stores

      1. Hi Ronee/Kurt!

        I also bought mine for P3,000 back in 2010. It’s been largely unused and I’m willing to sell it at a lower price if you’re interested. 🙂
