Rawvolution Review

I am finally getting to the review of "The Box" from Rawvolution. I'm having trouble getting my pictures to load to blogger. But here goes anyway.......

The Box arrived on time just as stated. This picture shows how the food looks right out of the box. I actually had to go to the menu to figure out what some of it was.

The first thing I tried was the Seaweed Salad. In all fairness, I have to say that I am not a fan of sea vegetables. So obviously I didn't care for this one. The veggie cakes have dulse in them and they tasted OK but I would have really like them without the dulse. The cauliflower mashed "potatoes" are not for me. I've made them myself and didn't like them then either. You can't like everything!

The soups were delicious, especially the Cucumber Dill. The desserts were yummy too. I loved the pineapple heart dessert. I have made it my self since then and it turned out great.

The tostada and the greek pizza were my favorites. The onion bread and seed cheese are amazing! The lasagna taste good but looked nothing like the picture in the cookbook Rawvolution.

Overall I thought the food was pretty good. The price a little high especially when you add on shipping ($40!). I will order again in the future but I will make sure the menu doesn't include sea veggies!

Good job to the folks at Rawvolution!

Have a nice day!

Return from Hiatus........

Time flies even when your not having much fun. I've been in the process of moving and getting my other home ready to sell. I pray for a quick sell but I'm also realistic. This economy has hit us hard. I just haven't had time to post or even work on my website.

On a more positive note, I'm back and ready to rock and roll with everything. I ordered "The Box" from Rawvolution owned by Matt Amsden. It should arrive on Wednesday and I will do a full review of everything. Can't wait! I love his cookbook Rawvolution. Definitely one of my favorites. I have his famous onion bread in the dehydrator as we speak and I am making the strawberry pie tonight. If you don't have this book, you need to get it. NOW. What are you waiting for?
