View Full Version : I Need Some Non-Fruit Lowfat Meal Ideas
09-02-2006, 01:22 PM
I think I'm discovering that high fruit isn't doing well for me. Typically, on green smoothies all day, I'll feel sluggish, but after a meal of Alissa'a pasta, I'll feel pretty good. bananas seem the worst, the more bananas I eat, the more I drag. I think it's probably related to candida. So I have to watch the fat (very limited avocados and nuts) and fruit. I'm going to try to incorporate elements of Robert Young's Ph Diet - which doesn't allow any fruit, vinegar.
The problem is, I need more ideas for meals - I can't live on raw zucchini pasta. I guess the chili recipe that Yanni posted a while ago would be another meal. What else might work? I need simple (I never liked complicated recipes, even before I was raw) and I don't have a dehydrator. I don't really like salads unless they have a really good dressing, but what kind of dressing can you make with no fruit, sweetener, fat or vinegar?

What about collard wraps, pate's (you can sub carrots for like half of the nuts) rolled in green leaves or eaten with veggies, spinach dip with veggies, marinated kale, slaws and different salads (Alissa has a bunch of various types of salads aside from the "basic"), don't know how you like 'em but blended soups...those are some off the top of my head.

Thanks! I'm guessing those are in Alissa's book? I have the book, so I'll take a look!

I am reading "The Body Ecology Diet" right now, and she has some wonderful information that you might find useful. It's not a raw book, but I find it very easy to adapt her diet to a raw foods version. That combined with Cousens "Rainbow Green" you can create a very delicious low sugar diet. Sometimes with candida our ability to digest fat can be limited, so perhaps cut the sugar and go from there. Nuts too because they are acid forming and feed candida.
anyway, low fat low glycemic meals...
Salad with a non-fat dressing
Many varieties of zucchini pasta.. try a pesto sauce, tomato, herb & garlic, ect
Blended green soups minus the avocado
Nori rolls or collards filled with kim chi, lettuce, tomatoes, ect
Cauliflower, jicama, or parsnip "rice" (make it "fried" with other veggies)
Cucumber, dill, tomato, basil salad
Seaweed salad!! Sooo many types.. eat it all
Shredded sweet potatoes with coconut oil (not on phase I, but see if you like it)
Shredded Kale with lemon juice & as much avocado as you desire
Also in the BED book, she explains how to make young coconut kefir. I have just started to experiment with it, but it seems to be a wonderful healing tonic.... see what you think... I'll keep thinking of recipes!

Thanks, I think I can borrow one of those books from the library and I just bought a used copy of the other one.

Hummus is another. Nori rolls are yummy too!
