I am soooo excited to show you this... :)

Christmas time is cookie time :)... Here is my daughter cutting some out. Yes, even raw it's fun :).

But look at what I friend of mine created!! It's so cute...

Little raw gingerbread houses!! :)

A whole town :)...and it's wintertime...and...

Let it snow! :):):):)

Gosh, they are sooo gooood...and lots of fun! You can also stick dried fruits on them. I have sooo many ideas... Who wants some, too?

My favorite are coconut cookies. I will show you the recipe soon. What is your favorite raw cookie recipe?

This is what you can eat now! :)

It's been snowing for weeks now - no chance for my loved nettles...but I did dry some ;). Besides snow (which is very clean around here - I measured it :)...) you can find the following fresh treasures:

Blackberry leaves, moss aaaaand....

rose hips...topped with a snow cap :). It's like ice with cream :). You can squeeze the gel inside out - it's like yummy. Or you can find blackthorn berries - they are good after the first frost as well.

Well and this was my son's birthday and his cakes :).

As I miss the cactus pears from Texas...I got some here :). Look at all those different colors :)...but all deliiicious.
What do you like to eat now?

One month full of parties :)

It started with the birthday of my daughter.

and ended with a potluck with wonderful people...

....and a Halloween party :).
Lots of fun and as always amazing how many delicious dishes come together. We've had lots of raw cookies, paté, sauces, pumpkin pie, crackers and more. So yummy... :)
Thanks to all who participated!! I am looking forward to the next one.

Impressions from the "Rohvolution" in Germany

The Rohvolution (in english Rawvolution) is like a big raw food fair where many producers of raw foods, juicers and other useful machines and similar health promoting companies have their booths. You can test their food at many places and buy many delicious foods.

It's been a while but it was great. :)

Here you can see a stand with the most delicious raw pralines. Really amazing! They melt on your tongue.

Urs Hochstrasser is a famous raw chef. He also teaches people more about raw foods. He also loves animals, has horses and trains them with the method of Monty Roberts. A very interesting and helpful person who has a lot of knowledge.

Lots of crackers to try and buy.

Hihi...yes, you could really get full from trying food. But you couldn't get around those really yummy cakes. Wow!
Have you been on any raw food events?? How was it??

Spring Camp 2010

So much for our Spring Camp :). We've had lots of fun and interesting lectures. We learned more about "The Work" (from Byron Katie) - a wonderful system for living in peace with yourself -, how you can strengthen your energy system so dangerous radiation (which becomes more and more nowadays) can't hurt you, raw food and much more. We prepared yummy meals together, made two delicious and easy birthday cakes, ice cream and pizza :). Raw food is soooo amazing and gooood :). The rest of the time we spent singing, laughing, talking, walking, playing...just having fun. As the weather was quite wet and cold we enjoyed cozy hours together inside as well ;). Here are some pictures for you enjoy, too:

Playtime for the kids and talktime for the rest ;) the "beach".

Birthday party at the camp :)...everybody loves it...especially the kids :).

Picnic at the last day - finally outside :)...with the rest of the families who didn't depart yet.
Next camp is the Summer Camp which will be 24 - 31 July in Germany, near Frankfurt. I'd be happy to welcome you there!! If you need more information please contact me.

Happy Easter to you (if you celebrate it)!!

Although it got colder again...and some rain in between - for the "hunt" we've had sunshine and quite warm temperatures :). The Easter "eggs" where filled with sweets like date-almond-eggs and nuts the kids looved. What did you do for Easter? Where you able to go outside? What kind of eggs & treats did you make? If you don't celebrate Easter - what did you do this weekend?
Happy to hear from you!


In memory of my beloved Mom!

"People join us for a while. Some stay forever as they leave traces in our hearts." My dear mother was such a person who has left deep traces of love. She was always there when you needed her and always found a solution even if the situation seemed hopeless. She had her heart in the right place and acted through it.

After a 6-month battle with a brain tumor she has now found peace. She has decided to go quietly and without fanfare. She was always anxious to please everybody. She loved people and found them to be happy with. In the community she was strongly engaged. She was in a historical dancing group, looked after the elderly with love and care about everyone who needed her. She was the good spirit of the summer youth camp for a few decades, read water meters and actively supported her husband in a sports club. Actually, it was impossible to go with her somewhere where she did not know anyone;). She could never hurt anyone because she felt with everybody. As much as she liked everything and often gave herself up she also loved her home and privacy.

She was always there for me when I needed her. She gave me the most precious - time. She helped with my children when I organized the camps. Children were her great love. We have experienced many beautiful moments while traveling with her. It was always wonderful with her.

With her grandchildren (but also with other children, whom she treated like her own) she had great joy. Some would have never thought that she was the grandma and not the mom ;). Yes, she whirled around with them often wilder than the parents themselves;). She was always full of energy and tireless in her giving. Thankfully, I can keep many beautiful moments in my mind. A part who will never be lost. She is always with us and we look forward to the day when we shall again take her in our arms.

Dear Mom, we miss you very much. But we also know that it was for your own good. You never wanted to be the long-term care that you were now for several weeks. But fortunately, this burden was taken from you soon and we can now accompany you with all your love from another location. We thank you for this valuable experience and wish you a safe journey from the heart!

I learned a lot and am very grateful - especially for the fact that I was able to be with her in her last moment. She was a wonderful person and will always be in our hearts. I say my warmest thanks in her name to everyone of her family members, friends and all the other wonderful people for all you did for her!

In everlasting love & solidarity
Yours Sonja

Yes, snow can be lots of "raw" fun, too! :) We've had fun on our sled trip anyway... It was a wonderful group of people we enjoyed our time with for a weekend. It feels sooo energising to do things with like-minded folks. Not saying I don't like others - I often learn from others and am very thinkful for it - but it feels home. :)
