Jim here... Happy Sunday morning, everyone!? We don't normally post on weekends, but we're sharing this video as a special gift for my mom on Mother's Day.As Wendi likes to say, "Every day is mother's day!"? But, I do like to do something a little special for my own wonderful mom. So, check out this video of a recipe Wendi (mostly) and I created for her. If you remember my reaction to the soup we made recently, it may not surprise you to hear me say that this sauce is the "best #$%^&*^%! sauce I've ever tasted!"

We're typing up and formatting this recipe for Pure Jeevan family members (you know, those who subscribe to our mail list). So, once it's ready, we'll be adding it to the queue of mailings we sent out to keep everyone inspired. This recipe is a keeper!

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!? We love you!

p.s. Most of the ingredients and tools featured in the creation of this recipe are available at Natural Zing. Just remember to go to for your special raw food needs! Visiting that specific link -- -- helps support Pure Jeevan, too! So, thanks!

This looks WONDERFUL and very teen friendly (both my kids have celiac disease so this will be great to have instead of our usual brown rice pasta). It is very nice of you guys to be doing this. I really appreciate your generous spirit and if you ever find folks who need my help I am the gluten free coordinator at EEFC; I compile the GF Shopping Guide by aisle.
Best regards,

Thanks, Esther! It's so delicious. We ate it for dinner last night, then saved a bit of the sauce for today at lunch. Mmmmmmmmmmmm!

Well, when I was a kid, I never cared for squash of any kind. So, if your kids are like mine, maybe try offering the beet pasta first. I'm pretty sure Wendi made a pasta out of carrot once, too. Thanks for your kind words, too, Cathy!

Awwww, thanks Pixy! Wendi's three years older than me. So, I expect my birthday in 2012 will be *my* 25th, which is appropriately auspicious, I think, as many are looking to 2012 as dawn of a new age of global awareness and enlightened consciousness. It'll be nice to greet that as a healthy, energetic 25-year-old.
