Just found the forum & signed up... It's nice to "meet you".
Off & on with raw food for years, I'd like to go 100% raw this year and use some of this equipment around my house collecting dust. I've got juicers, sprouters, dehydrators, etc., but I normally just walk around eating stuff out of my hands! Plates might be nice to use too! I pretty much am alone and have no raw or vegan friends. I'm a middle-age female with 2 cats for those who'd like to know.
If anyone has some tips on how to take more time & care with your own personal food, I'm all ears.
Again, nice to be here...

Hello from Tidewater, VA,
You might consider taking a level 1 class. I believe there are at least two teachers in your area, and there are classes scheduled. If it wasn't a 1/2 day drive, I'd be taking one ASAP.
Pick some of the staple recipes. RawTruth listed a number that were 10 minutes or less in prep time. Here they are (unfortunately I can't find the link but I did have her reply on my computer):
*Mock Salmon Pate
*Portabella Mushrooms stuffed with Guacamole
*Collard Wraps (stuffed with marinated mushrooms, guac & chopped veggies)
*Angel Hair Pasta w/Marinara
There are 7 recipes that I guarantee have few ingredients and can be whipped up in 10 minutes. You will have enough for a few meals with each recipe. And ... several of them are really versatile ... the pate and the dip can be used as dips or in wraps or on top of a salad or scooped up with crackers or celery sticks or .... use your imagination.
So ... these are two weeks worth of recipes easily. Just jot down the ingredients, make your shopping list, stock your kitchen with them and you're all set to augment that basic smoothies & salads routine you're now in.
And ... if you're wanting sweets, you can't beat the Date Nut Torte and the Fudge Balls for simplicity -- 3 ingredients max!!
Here's another link I think you should read through: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12127&highlight=fast+easy
Hope this helps you with a start,

All the way from Arlington, VA here. If you'd like to meet more raw fooders, Vegetarian Society of D.C. has a monthly pot luck and there's a great Northern Virginia Meet-up group that's getting together this Saturday. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (I think that still works, please post back here if you don't here back) if I can tell you more or you might want to trade some email off board.
(middle-age female, no cats, one husband, many stuffies ;)
