Living in Austin, TX (at least for this month) certainly has it perks. Actually, it has so many advantages that I am tempted to call it my favorite city in the world, but that’s a blog post for another day. One of the perks of Austin is that it seems to draw eclectic, like-minded people together from all around the globe and one of those such groups of people is the raw vegan community.
I was excited when I realized I would be in Austin for Thanksgiving and promptly found out what the other fruit and veggie lovers were planning. The result was an epic potluck with amazing treats. Check out what we enjoyed.
Greens with Carrot-Ginger Dressing
Raw Lasagna (Recipe In my Book)
Banana-Persimmon-Date Pie (Recipe Here)
We also had the lovely treat of live entertainment from fellow fruit-lover Sean.
Potlucks are a great way to get together and relate with others. Everyone feels like they are a part of the gathering because they have brought something to contribute, and that way it is not too much work for any one person to pull together.
There is no need to wait for a holiday to plan a potluck either. Get a group of loved ones together and start planning a gathering! Create an event on Facebook or check out Evite to send an invitation for an easy and fun way to keep everything organized.
