The Democratic National Convention is over and my mind is really spinning. The amount of information I’ve learned and discovered about our leaders in Washington and what they think regarding our food policy here in America is mind blowing.
Until I get all my thoughts, notes, etc. organized, I want to share the special shake recipe I made for WCNC – NBC News Channel 6 last week when they came to my home for breakfast to interview me about being an elected North Carolina delegate to the DNC.
It’s a new version of the infamous Hari Shake (Hari, my last name, means green in Hindi) and it’s by far my favorite these days. This recipe tastes like a sweet tart (you know, the candy from Willy Wonka) that I haven’t had in years.
To my surprise both the camera man and reporter Ann Sheridan drank their entire shake. They didn’t leave a single drop, which of course left a huge smile on my face and a lasting impression about the impact one can have on changing people’s impression about eating healthy food.
Come inside my kitchen, watch the video and read the whole story here:
