SF Tour in SF, Day 2 – Pad Thai with Kelp Noodles recipe

dixie mahy ani phyo sharon raw food san francisco vegetarian society SF life mission

On day 2 of my SF book tour I joined Dixie Mahy and Sharon at their combined SF Life and SF Vegetarian Society potluck in the Mission District for a book signing. I demonstrated my recipe for Pad Thai with Kelp Noodles, from page 227 of Ani’s Raw Food Essentials (recipe is below). Dixie, the host, is well into her 70s, and full of fire and good energy. She’s a testament to the vegan lifestyle.

The Mission was my old stomping ground in the early 90s, I lived at Treat Street and 24th Street. I was happy to see that much of the neighborhood seems to have kept its charm over the years.

Three beautiful ladies were excited to recently discover raw foods. Common questions were about weight loss and ingredients like agave. What I answer is to be happy, live in moderation, and have an attitude of gratitude. Stressing out about whether a goji berry has been dried 10 degrees too hot adds stress. We are blessed to have the knowledge we do to make informed decisions when it comes to what we choose to eat. We’re privileged be able to decline food when people are starving in other countries. Keep perspective, and be happy. Happiness is a reflection of our inner health.

This lovely lady told me how her mom had been sent home to die over 40 years prior. Her mom instantly changed her diet to raw vegan, and has been thriving ever since! I believe illnesses comes from the accumulation of garbage in our body. Enjoying more raw vegan food, which are naturally cleansing and detoxifying, helps to decrease our toxic load along with our overall stress, boosts are immune system, and fuels longevity.

A great group of people in SF, where I lived 8 years through the 90s. I miss all my friends and the culture of SF including electronic music, design, fashion, art, and the vibrant community culture. I didn’t get to go dancing this trip, so I’ll need to visit again soon, socially next time, just to hang out and absorb the beauty of SF.
