View Full Version : Trying to start raw again... Need help!!
08-27-2006, 08:35 PM
I was considering raw for a while, I fell off pretty bad. I was very embarrassed. Needless to say, I'm back, and need lots of help. I feel so overwhelmed by all of the ingredients... what are some good raw cookbooks?
Also, my biggest problem with sad is popcorn, chips and salsa, shrimp tacos, and just salty snacks in general. Are there any good substitutes for these?
Any help is much appreciated.

Alissa's "Living on Live Foods" uncook book is great.

You are embarrased? Now that's a wast of good energy. You did the right thing, you ran home for help.
Yes you need to get a cook book. There are plenty of snack recipes. You need to keep your menu simple if you are getting overwhelmed. If it's RAW, eat it.
Click on the Banana and you can find recipes now..........There are plenty of friends here waiting to share with you. Now go get you a banana and eat it and everything will be all right. You are home again. So glad you are back. And don't forget to order Alissa's Book............

You can make crackers that will take the place of chips and raw salsa is easy and great. The onion dip is nice and there are lots of recepies here for raw hummus (try the cashew one).
You can either reduce your salt gradually or go cold turkey. We have some salt threads running that you should check up on.
Crackers can be made using anything you like. My personal preferance would be onion or lemmon.
Just shout out loud when you want help with anything or specific recepies.

Thanks for all of your help. Does anyone know of a salad dressing instead of olive oil and lemon? I usually like Blue Cheese.... Is there a raw salad dressing with that kind of consistency?

Alissas book is loaded with them. In the meantime while your waiting on the book I enjoy this one:
Lay-lays tomatoe-pepper dressing:
1/2 orange or red bell pepper
1 clove garlic
pinch of salt
1 lemon squeezed
1 tsp of cayenne
Blend and slowly add in about a 1/2 cup of olive oil (add more or less as desired)
very tasty and is great as a dressing or make a little thicker for a dip. I used to be a big blue cheese fan and now I would never go back. Raw dressings are sooo much better. I am pretty sure there is a Blue cheese one in Alissas book, but if not use the banana to search old threads for one. I know they are out there.
