View Full Version : 80-10-10 Simple Recipe Ideas

I am loving the vibrancy and energy I feel at 8-1-1. Maybe it's not for everyone because I believe we all have different ratio needs. But as an athlete it is ideal...and look at Dr. Graham!!!! He has been following this for 27 years? Amazing! I don't know how old he is but he appears to be in vibrant health! I think it would be easy to get caught up in the ratios etc....but it seems to me so far....one year raw and about 1-2 weeks 80-10-10 that it gets easier. I mean, if you know you need 2,000 calories then you know you need about 20 grams of fat....That will average out to about one "serving" of a fat daily (ie 1T olive oil, etc...) + the minimal amounts of fat in your fruits and veggies that DO ADD UP!! I am still tracking on fitday.com to get the knack of it but would like to start a new thread entitled 80-10-10 recipe ideas for some simple high carb, low fat combos....They don't necessarily need to be in the 8-1-1 ratio but high carb and low protein/fat....If anyone else is interested please join in! I like to keep it simple too! Mono meals for fruits & 5 or less ingredients or less for "salads" (including fruit salads)......I hope it is o.k. on this forum to start a thread such as this.....It is raw after all! ;)

I've been curious about 8-1-1. All I've read in the past pushed greens. I do agree that we don't need much fat. I'm so looking forward to the recipes from this thread!

4 frozen bananas food processed (whip 'em up!) or homogonized
2 more bananas sliced on top/ around bowl
a sprinkle of coconut for garnish
1 cherry on top!
Yummy on a hot summer day! I love it for a meal! Maybe it's the old "DON'T EAT YOUR DESSERT BEFORE DINNER!" fallacy we all grew up on but I love it for a meal while everyone else is noshing on SAD!!!! They always want a taste of mine!!!
I am not sure of the exact ratio but I think it's pretty close to 8-1-1...
BANANA HINT: We buy our bananas at the supermarket when they are overripe (and CHEAP :D ) load up the cart and bring them home to dehydrate into "tree trunks" (dubbed by my kids, a banana divided into 5 pieces resembles a tree trunk!), peel and freeze them in bags/containers for smoothies/banana sorbet.....some I blend to make fruit leather (about 4 bananas makes one "sheet" of leather! Good luck! and don't mind the stares you get at the grocery store when you buy a cart of bananas! It's kind of funny! People ask if I will be baking, etc.... I proudly say "no, we eat a lot of bananas at our house" and proceed to tell them the sorbet/dehydrator ideas....I usually get a shocked "Oh :eek: !" and nothing else....or a very eager potential raw fooder asking LOTS of questions! Hey, I'll spread the word! :D Good luck! Keep the simple recipes coming!!!!! My uncooking skills await!

This is great - add as much or little avocado as you'd like. This is really filling.
1 lime, juiced
Cut all the fruits up and toss in a large bowl with lime juice.

Black Forest Ice Cream for Breakfast !
2 frozen Banana's, made to ice cream..add tablespoon of cacao or carob, stevia or raw agave to taste. I topped with some cherries.
another good snack if you like basil is to chop some onto cucumbers, pepper, tomatoes slices with a squirt of lemon. Refreshing snack.
