Lunch with Sh'nette

Follow Sh’nette to some healthy raw meals that eliminate unnecessary cooking and over-eating. Use little or no salt, sugar, oil, and spices – let the food’s flavor whet your appetite.

If the meal is light, mushrooms or peas add fullness.

Use foods like lime, tangerine, kumquat, and pomegranate for tangy flavor.

Grapes, mango, fresh dates, and ripe plantains can give you the sweet flavor you're looking for.

Avocado, young coconut flesh, and sapote provide a creamy texture for your meal.

Remember, food is your medicine and you should eat well to live well...
