Ray and Jenny's Healthy Raw Foods

Bast from the Past

from our News page, 2008

"Just a note to thank you also for the great recipes in the News section. I tried them all, modifying some ingredients to what we had in the kitchen at the time and found them to be so easy to make, tasty and energizing! I follow a natural hygiene diet but also cook traditional Japanese, spicy Indian (both minus animal protein) and macrobiotic dishes for my non-veg husband. Thank you, and have a nice day!" - Rie W., Japan


Making Ambrosia
It sure is good!

Domestic cantaloupe are back in season! When juiced with a Champion, we have what I call Ambrosia. (Classical mythology; the food and drink of the gods; mortals who ate it became immortal.)

Mythology aside, we use the machine with its standard screen, and put the pulp back in the hopper a few times. Of course, to begin we remove the seeds, slice the skin off the cantaloupe, and slice the fruit into strips. We add the skin to our compost pile. We plant the seeds or most often throw them to the birds. Problem is, the birds are so fond of them they also dig the planted ones back up.

A day in the life of Ray and Jenny. At least the lunch.  

Making raw sushi

Raw Vegetable Sushi

Cut into thin strips: Carrot, Cucumber, Green onion, Beet, Avocado, Beet greens, Ginger, Red bell pepper, Yellow bell pepper, Jicama.

Place ingredients on a sheet of Sushi Nori. Roll the sushi tightly, and dampen the far 1/2" end of the Nori so the roll will stick together. Shape the roll, and slice into bite-size pieces.

Raw Sushi

More gratuitous philosophy from Ray  

Heads or Tails   (Self-control) or (How to create a better world)

Imagine one has a pocket full of coins. Each coin represents an aspect of one's life, something that one thinks about every now and then. Or something that just springs into mind.

Imagine that every time an aspect of one's life springs into mind, that coin is automatically pulled from the pocket and tossed onto the table.

Does the coin land head-up, or tails-up?

Each coin has two sides - Positive/Negative, Like/Dislike, Love/Hate, Worry/Solace...

One may not be able to control whether the coin lands head-up or tails-up.

But after it lands, one can flip it over.

Strawberry Ice Cream. Tastes really good! Quick and easy, and it's non-fattening.

Raw Chili Rellenos

Raw Chili Rellenos
Colorful, tasty, and healthy

This is another one of our perennial favorites:

3 large bell peppers (one each red, orange, yellow)
1-1/2 cups sunflower seeds, soaked several hours or overnight
2 medium carrots
3 stalks celery
6 medium mushrooms
1/4 cup cilantro
1/4 small onion
1 clove garlic
1 small jalapeno pepper, de-seeded
1 tsp lime or lemon juice
1/4 tsp cumin.

Cut the bell peppers in quarters lengthwise and remove the seeds and stem; set aside. Use a food processor or Champion juicer with the solid plate to puree the sunflower seeds, carrots, celery, mushrooms, cilantro, onion, garlic and jalapeno. Add lime juice and cumin and mix thoroughly. Stuff the peppers with the pate. Garnish with slices of avocado and cherry tomatoes. This recipe adapted from Nomi Shannon's The Raw Gourmet.

Creamy Carrot and Avocado Soup
Hearty and delicious

Raw Pizza

Today, Jenny is making raw pizza for lunch.

We started the business with our Tarp and Net-Tent Kits, and our Tarp Book. Then as time rolled on, we added a few new items. But we did so with great caution, because we were not sure the market was ready for a business like ours. As I wrote in the integrity paradigm:

"One obstacle in designing our kits here at Ray-Way Products is the moral issue. The patterns and instructions are worth far more than the materials, so we are taking a chance that customers might share the patterns and instructions with others, and even go so far as to use them for commercial enterprise. Will our customers exercise integrity in themselves and respect for our work and our products? This kind of integrity is not terribly common in society, and it is not learned much in schools, churches, and certainly not on tv, in movies, and on the internet.

"But neither is sewing one's own outdoor gear common in society, and Jenny and I like to think we are helping to shift the paradigm somewhat in that regard.

"These kits do require a shift in morals. Too many customers showing disrespect of our designs would only discourage us from designing new types of kits, and in that regard everyone would lose."

Jenny and I appreciate all the customers who have bought our kits. We value your business, and the opportunity to make these kits available to you. Thanks also for putting your trust in us.
