Chef German Lam of Glam Foods was at Healthworks Chestnut Hill on Monday featuring some healthy, easy and delicious summer time recipes. The following recipe is one that he prepared at the club on Monday.  Try it out, don’t let the veggies scare you, it’s good! Raw food diets are very popular these days because many think that raw foods contain higher levels of nutrients and good bacteria.  But for you carnivores, this dish works just as good as a side to some fresh fish or grilled chicken.
