Does this food look raw to you?

Does this food look raw to you? Because if it doesn’t, apparently that makes some people angry!

I had a very interesting experience the other day when I shared some photos of my food.

I was taking part in a contest, and I had to provide photos. The people running the contest knew nothing about raw food, and I was the only raw food chef who had entered (I like a challenge!)

When I posted about the contest in LinkedIn on one of the raw food groups I’m a member of, someone made the following comment:

It does not look like raw food to me, or even vegan…..

Now this was coming from someone who had criticized my blog on a previous occasion because they thought I was promoting meat(!)

I thought about how to reply, and realized that actually the comment is a fantastic gift.

Here’s what I said:

That’s great to hear, because it’s both raw AND vegan! I’m targeting people who know nothing about raw food, so the less it looks like a bowl of salad the more they’ll be happy to try it 🙂 Victory!

Want to see the pics so you can see what I mean? Here they are:

Pictured from top left are my Oriental Noodl(ish) Soup, Sesame Olive Crackers, Pad Thai, Italian Pasta and Creamy Chocolate Pudding.

Do any of those dishes look like a bowl of salad?

Definitely not, right?

And I’d even say…thank goodness!
