Okay can I just tell you that I am loving Uk Raw Food Chef Russel James. I first found him on a couple of blogs. So I got really curious about him and signed up for his newsletter. Then... he was posted in a contest on Raw Rehab this month. I have tried several of his recipes and I think they are great. He has put out some free video's and if you haven't checked them out I would highly suggest it.
I have made a couple of his dishes so far and really enjoyed them. I made a creamy kale salad that used avocado in it. I have made it twice and it is so yummy. Of course I adapted mine a little bit. I know you will all like this as you all love kale. Here is my version. His look a lot better than mine do. I am usually rushed and still trying to figure out my camera....so go check out his pictures to see the really great photo's.
So this is my own adapted version as I didn't have cherry tomatoes an I also added some sunflower cheese. So Yummy.
Then I also made a Mango Timbale today. The combination is so different that I just had to try it. I was totally intrigued because I would never put these things together on my own. Like avocado, mango, grapefruit, bee pollen and more. This dish was so easy to make that it will be one of my new staples. It took me about 10 minutes. It should have lemongrass foam on it, but I didn't have any on hand. I will give it a try next week. I do love lemongrass, so I bet it would be good.
I am going to purchase one of his packages I just haven't figured out which one yet. I like his e-books package and it has a great price. I found out that it is easier for me to have the e book on the computer or watch a video. Instead of looking through my hard copies. Of course I would love to take his home study program. However I am still finishing up some other courses right now. I can always hope that I win the Raw Rehab contest where the prize is one of his courses. A girl has to be lucky sometime, right?
I think one of the things I really enjoy about him is that his straight forward down to earth approach and personality in the videos.
If you haven't seen him, check him out. Just got an email today(Friday) that he is also launching his home study course and it's open to the public now.
Love to hear if you tried any of his recipes?
