Whoa, Pure Jeevan's Back?!

2016 update: Aha, you noticed?! Welcome. Yes, we wanted to bring the site back online again, mainly because it's so packed with articles and information. It will be a work in progress for some time, as we changed web platforms and all sorts of tech stuff. So, a lot of links are hard-coded to old Wordpress-style links... just awful. But, in time we'll get all of it back in shape. For now, enjoy clicking around and reading!

Jim here... Wow, we haven't posted in a few days. That calls for some action! Hmmm... how about taking a look at some delicious mini pizzas Wendi whipped up the other day:

We went absolutely nuts for these little "pizzas." They were both tasty and fun. If memory serves, I believe she made them by taking slices of firm roma tomatoes, spooning on some improvised pesto sauce that she whipped up, sprinkling on some chopped basil leaves, sprinkling on some "cheese" that she made with ground Brazil nuts, garlic, and salt, and then topping each "pizza slice" off with a half cherry tomato. No recipes necessary here; just take a look at the picture & go try it!

The cat-themed serving plate is optional but, in my opinion, highly preferable. It reminds me to add one final thought: Remember to put joy into everything you eat. Have fun with your experimentations. Celebrate the goodness you're fueling your body with. Write down or photograph what you did when it tastes great. And when it's not so good, laugh it off and look forward to next time when you'll improve your recipe!

That was a nice surprise seeing a post on our blog! For those who don't know, we've been working on many HUGE projects at the same time and that is keeping us away from posting in our blog and commenting a lot in the many communities of which we are a part. It's all going to be worth it, however--some MAJOR things are going to be happening in the near future!

For the pizzas, I think the green is a mixture of spinach and basil. I also normally blend up some sundried tomatoes with some oregano, touch of olive oil, salt, garlic, and a fresh tomato to make some sauce. So, it is probably a layer like this: slice of roma tomato, spread of tomato sauce, dollop of pesto, chopped spinach and basil, Brazil nut cheese sprinkle (with oregano), cherry tomato. If you aren't cutting back on fat, I'd drizzle some olive oil over the whole platter at the end, too!

Someday I'll meet all of you in person and we can eat some tasty raw food creations together!

Lots of love to all of you!!

Wendi
XOXOXO

Hmmm...I hope this comment doesn't show up twice, but I just said that this looks totally delicious, and thank you for posting the picture, information and inspiration (or something to that effect...but it didn't seem to show up after I logged in to disqus.)
