Ani’s Raw Food Baja Taco Wraps: 6 min, 18 sec
It may be hard to imagine eating a raw food, vegan, uncooked taco. But I assure you, this recipe is delicious. It was voted as the favorite recipe out of the 7 I taught during my 4-hour raw food workshop in Phuket, Thailand at Mom Tri’s Villa Royale.
This segment aired on Thailand’s NBT Television on January 29th, 2010. I’ll show you just how easy it is to make these fresh raw food Baja Taco Wraps.
A fun time was had in the kitchen preparing 8 dishes for my workshop on Sunday Jan 24, 2010 at Mom Tri’s Villa Royale. Sylvie (in black) is the PR manager who made this all happen.
With my language barrier…the kitchen staff finally understood that none of my food was being heated or cooked. Here I show them how to make Garden Pate filled Nori Rolls.
Sylvie and I toasted to another great day in the kitchen with coconut water! I was in heaven in Thailand with all the Thai baby coconuts. And the chefs are super fast at opening them up and getting the meat out….amazing.
Mom Tri, owner of the resort, totally gets it. His spa uses edible coconut oil, he has an organic farm in Chang Mai with a cooking school, and looks super fit and healthy.
This is one of 3 pools at Mom Tri’s, and salt water too.
Each morning I’d find a newly bloomed lotus flower. They’re beautiful!
This is just one of several decks overlooking the ocean for dining and drinking. What a view!
This is the beach at Mom Tri’s….turquoise water and white sands. I did get a minor jelly fish sting. I was with a doctor, luckily, who kept me calm, and though it left welts on my arm, it was really not a big deal. I tried to swim a mile a day in the ocean. It was bath water warm and such a treat.
It was super special to get to meet up with 2 longtime friends from SF in Phuket, Thailand.
Dr D (which in Thai means ‘the good doctor’) runs the 21 Day Detox program, and he and his partner John Wood taught me all about detoxing almost 10 years ago. Dr D is currently living in Bangkok developing his clinic with cutting edge healing therapies.
Anthony Hall and I go way back to SF days of raves and web 1.0. He’s an amazing photographer, and artist in general. We’re both back in LA now…and combating jet lag! Anthony’s British…perhaps that explains his stern expression. But, I did manage get him to smile…..
Smiles and friends are two important pieces for fueling happiness. The sunshine and warm water and tropical environment helps too!
I love how the Balinese reuse litter glass bottles to hold petrol. At first I wondered if this could be dangerous. What if someone drank a bottle by accident? I guess that’s why they display the bottles on a special stand along with a funnel (you can see it in the photo on the bottom shelf).
Growing up in a Korean home in New York, I was taught to use less and to reuse things whenever possible. Like using prepared food containers, instead of buying bright plastic Tupperware, to store our left overs. Korean moms are notorious for saving plastic bags, and reusing them until they fall apart. I think this comes from the fact that Korea wasn’t always a 1st world country, and when my folks were growing up, resources and even food were scarce. So, it was important to make the best use of everything available, and never to waste.
My recipes for Cobbler Crumble Topping and also my Fresh Taco Wraps ranked numbers 4 & 5 for Delicious Living Magazine’s Top 10 Gluten-free Recipes of 2009.
