    Oh yummmmm to everything! I love the Aloe idea too, wow that is such an interesting idea. Did you like the taste? The only aloe I’ve ever used/touched in picking it fresh in my mum’s garden and breaking the leaf apart to put on my sunburnt skin, but I always thought it smelt like bad body odor LOL. So what was the verdict on the texture and taste? Also what did you use to die it? Beetroot juice? Very clever indeedy.

    PS Glad you’re not wishing your time away there 🙂 xx

      I mean *dye* it 😉

    What a cool, creative thing to do with aloe! I have a plant here, and when I lived in HI we all had them all over. I liked them in smoothies, they’re magic on sunburns, but this is really super-inventive.

    And what a contrasting medley of different things you got to prepare today. Sounds like so much fun – a combination of direction and free rein to your creativity.

    What a cool trick with the fake tuna. Beet juice to dye it?

    I don’t like certain lettuces either. Only red leaf most of the time. Not that into romaine unless the sauce is really good.

    Wow. I’ve also ever rubbed aloe vera on my sunburnt skin, so I’m having a hard time imagining eating it… but you *know* how much I’d kill for tha gelato. Oh holy heaven.

    I’m amazed by the aloe nigiri…WOW. Did you eat it? I’m thinking that much aloe would have the entire classroom running to the toliet…LOL! It has a strong laxative effect on me anyway! And that almond butter gelato – I am in love.

    The Gelato and the Salad look Amazing!! I’m not to sure on the aloe though lol. It looked pretty interesting 🙂

    Maybe I’ve been living under a rock, but I never knew you could eat aloe vera…I’ve only seen it used for soothing sun burns. 🙂

    I used to love gelato, and yours looks amazing. Yum!

    That is the most beautiful sushi I’ve ever seen, I also don’t care for aloe though.

    Your disdain for salads is hilarious to me, at least you’re a testament to the fact that raw veganism isn’t just salads for three meals a day!

    OMG gelato! That looks insane, one of my favorite flavor combos too.

  9. Kylie @ A Hungry Spoon

    What an awesome day of cooking! I had no idea that aloe was edible…and it does look amazingly like tuna when dyed red 🙂 The gelato looks heavenly, too–I would have gone with the same flavor for sure!

    That gelato looks dreamy!

    I’ve also only had aloe vera juice, but I think I would like the actual aloe. I like weird textures. 🙂

    KILLING ME!! That gelato looks out of this world! Just before I read your comment I remembered the flavor but if you can so it again in another way, why not? 😀

    I love aloe vera. Glad you liked it too, love the idea of making a different color 🙂 Glorious!! And I would love a bowl of that gelato, yum yum!! I wish I could take the bowl off the computer screen 😉

    Cool to use aloe vera for nigiri! Wasn’t it extremely bitter though? Glad you are starting to eat salad! As for the gelato, I can imagine exactly how perfect the texture was. yum!

  14. Alisa

    That is very creative.I wonder how that tastes? It looks good though.

    I love these classes were one learns how to handle a plant or veggie in an original fashion! I thought the aloe vera trick was superb! even of the taste is not up to par, what a wonderful creation!
    Love that salad! as for the ice-cream I am gonna have to taste it!
    Lucky you ! Love all these experiments!

    another great salad I need to check out that picture more to see if you what is in it.

    want to hear something funny aloe vera breaks me out into a huge rash!!!

  17. Kate @ahealthypassion

    Your food looks absolutely delicious the presentation is incredible. I just bought a raw food cookbook and cant wait to start making some of the recipes. Although none of them look as good as yours. How did you choose 105 degrees?

    It’s so funny that you don’t like salad. I don’t know why it’s funny. I like romaine the best, too. I like it so much, I like to munch on it plain. 🙂

    I tried to drink aloe juice, but wowzers – not good. Those are the cutest little wrapped “packages,” though!

    Nice Work! I do have a question though. If you dont like eating salads then how do you normally eat your greens? Smoothies? Juice?
