View Full Version : Need Vegetable ONLY Recipe
07-21-2006, 03:23 AM
I'm completely new at this raw food journey. I started this colon cleansing thing cause of some health issues and the ONLY things i'm allowed to eat are vegetables (NO TOMATO), bananas, and avocados. I can't use a dehydrator because it also uses some amount of heat.
PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME BEFORE I KILL MYSELF OF COOKED FOOD DEPRIVATION!!!

yes oils and herbs are allowed (olive oil or sesame oil or just things that are considered oils on the healthier side)
no tomatoes at all.

yes it's a good idea to start with some basics and her book is a great place. Lots of links to read too just sit down with a smoothie and surf and read away :)

Make green smoothies to tide you over. Combine a few bananas with water and dark green leaves (spinach, romaine, dandelion greens, dinosaur kale, to name a few) in a blender. It will taste sweet despite the color. Try a ratio of 60% fruit to 40% greens. If you want it cold, freeze peeled banana chunks. Otherwise, get the idea of "smoothie" as in what you get from the mall (which is chemicals poured from a carton) out of your head. This is a blended meal.
No raw nuts or seeds allowed?
Make big beautiful delicious green salads with chopped veggies. Can you use raw tahini to make a dressing? If not, try raw olive oil and lemon juice with some herbs shaken in.
You can also make Alissa's raw angel-hair pasta but instead of marinara sauce, make a pesto with basil, olive oil, garlic, raw pine nuts.
Order her book online or, depending on where you live, it may be available locally. Just not at mainstream bookstores.

kmk81 Get Alissas Book; and just for now try searching these sites for some ideas:
****you can do pesto pasta on zuchini or carrot or beet or yam spaghetti*** you can do cream sauces from coconut meat if you can't do nuts
you can choose the recipes that will work for your limited diet allowances. welcome to the RAWsome RAwWorld and best to your health. Joz
