I receive several different email notifications from different types of foodie bloggers, raw, vegan, not raw. The other day I received a post about a coconut baked flat round thing (you can guess, I just didn't want to type it). This morning I finally opened it expecting it would be one of those recipes to be printed and saved (I am a recipe, cookbook, uncookbook collector). But when I opened it and looked at the baked flat round thing it didn't set off any sirens, bells or whistles. I just looked at it and thought, "Eh. It's a coconut baked flat round thing." No mouth watering, racing pulse, nothing.
But when I opened the picture of Bryan Au's Bear Claw the drooling mechanism kicked in big time! Don't get me wrong, I still love to bake and cook, but will admit that even if I snitch a baked treat it just doesn't seem the same as it did say two years ago. It's still good, just not satisfying. Does that make sense?
When I first started green smoothies two years ago I would try raw "baked" goods but just couldn't "do" the texture. It seems so heavy when I had my mouth set for light and fluffy. It would be nice to find light and fluffy raw goodies, but with my desire for tastes and textures changing, light and fluffy may not be what I like anymore. We'll see.
