View Full Version : On The Way to Raw , VA

I just purchase the book and DVD. I have read about raw foods in a few articles. I also own about two books on Raw Foods. I try to eat raw all day, but i fail at dinner time. I just don't know what to make. I crave heavy foods. I like to try some raw recipes but don't know where to start. :confused:

Some things that are a little on the heavy side are avacados and nut butters. Try making some recipes ahead of time so you are prepared. Another good versatile thing is nori wraps or such. Either take nori or large leaved greens such as cabbage that's wilted or lettuce and add your veggies. Roll up tight and dip in nama shoyu. Just start experimenting. Good luck and welcome!

Are you anywhere near Tidewater? If so, do you want to "network"? I would love to have a close "raw buddy" since I am pretty much a newbie myself.
As soon as you can get through Alissa's book and video's. I was just rewatching the dvd's again last night. They are really informative and inspiring.
As far as recipes, here are a few of our favorites. We haven't been at this too long so I am sure there are lots of others:
Take Elian's great idea for an avocado, split it, and fill it with some type of salad. The other day we did this with the tabouli recipe from the garden diet (gardendiet.com). Simple but yummy and filing.
Make Alissa's "squash" pasta and pasta sauce. I've served that one to non-raw foodist's and it's gotten rave reviews.
Seaweed salad with cucumber. (I made up my own recipe for this and it's pretty decent. If you are so inclined I would be glad to send it to you.)
Alissa's hummus and mock salmon pate are both yummy and filling. Whip some up, wrap it up in some nori (again per Elian's suggestion) or a big leafy vegggie (collard or kale).
Occasionally when we want need something quick and simple a smoothie is the meal of choice: a good green smoothie or something with nut milk, bananas, carob, etc. These are very filling.

I do live in the tidewater area, in Norfolk. All the food you recommended sounds nice. I think it would be good to have a raw buddy for support. I'm going to check out the links.
