Raw Food Diet: Healthy Lunch Ideas : Adding Corn to a Raw Food Salad

Uploaded by expertvillage on 20.01.2008

Hello, I'm Denise Bennet and I'm here on behalf of Expert Village. The last ingredient, I
kind of kept this corn together, but obviously we're not going to be using these outside
pieces at all, the husk and the silk. This is yellow corn but you can use white and in
fat I usually use white. And whatever I can find, it's just a little hard to find it in
the store right now. Go ahead and cut this right off the cob. I always think it's easier
to do it this way. You can pull out that silk and as you can see it's pretty easy to do
this. You need a sharp knife. Cut towards yourself. Take it right off. The first time
I had raw corn, I thought the people were insane and of course I love it. I could never
go back to cooked corn. It tastes so much better this way. But everything is just reprogramming.
We've got our little ideas of what we think makes sense. And we've got to think about
where we got that and if it still makes sense to us. It makes perfect sense to reevaluate
especially when it comes to your taste buds because they can be thrown off quite a bit
by cooked food. so you want to have programmed, deprogrammed and put ourselves back to where
we belong, back to nature. So, the now when your taste buds work, you'll know exactly
what's right for your body. And we have this gorgeous salad that you can see and we're
almost done. Just put a few little pieces in there. And as you can see it, this salad
is absolutely lovely. You can use jicama, I've used jicama several times, and it's really
nice. Jicama is a root, this is it here and it has some water content but I find that
it's almost impossible to find organic where the Asian pear I was able to find organic.
It has a lot more water content and a little bit of sweetness to it, which is perfect.
And this is just the loveliest salad and we're going to use this as part of our lunch so
I guess I don't get to dig in. No one's looking. Mmmm...perfect.
