Rugged & Raw!
Recently my comrades, Batsauce & Lady Daisey have been staying with me here in the A. Aside from doing shows and finishing up our respective albums (all music produced by Batsauce of course!), we enjoyed a 4 day raw diet. We had mad juice and raw nuts as well, but here are some of the culinary highlights:
Collard Green - Veggie Wrap, Field Green Salad, Raw Sesame Cabbage Salad
Collard GreenWrap w/ Bell Pepper, Avocado, Tomato, EVOO & Sprouts
It's a wrap!

Cherry Tomatoes w/ Fresh Basil Oil & Nutritional Yeast
Salad before the toss

Props to Batsauce on the Guac!

Lab Up & Grub Down
It was all peace when we got blessed by a visit from good friends and homies in music, Stacy Epps and Everet James. Stacy and I go back for a minute, (*hint hint she can be heard on my forthcoming album w/ Paten Locke, “Studies in Hunger,” on Domination Recordings) and tonite she fell through to record a part of my project with Batsauce. Needless to say, Chef 4 Burners catered the studio session lovely.
