View Full Version : heavy recipes
I am just starting my raw journey and need some ideas for some heavy and tasty meals that my brain will think is SAD food; any suggestions?
(I ordered a dehydrator and should get it in about a week) Maybe I should wait till then to start? I think it will be pretty hard w/o one!

I went for a long time before I could afford a dehydrator, but I still found plenty of great raw dishes to enjoy. The dehydrator is just an added bonus for me :) I personally love making Living pastas, lasagnes, burritos, soups, or desserts..none of which really require a dehydrator. Take a look for your versions of your favorite SAD recipes, and see which ones you are able to make. And above all, enjoy! Morgan

I like lentil sprouts. They remind me of refried beans. I've tried adding things to them like tomatoes, onions, corn, cilantro, etc. I prefer them plain.

Alissa's Alfredo Fettucine and eggplant parmsean to me are heavy. I can't eat them. Her pizza recipes are heavy, but I do like them. Seems like the ones with lot of "cheese" to me are heavier.
Do you have her book?

You can always make a nut cheese spread , eat with veggies, or marinate portabello mushys in olive oil and vinegar for 2 hrs until soft, you could make cynthia beaver's mashed potatoes:) yum, or any of the recipies in alissa's book work too.

Hi. I am also very new. I made Alissa' fettucini and found it very filling as well! Also, I just made the easy apple pie. It was very easy to make (you just need a food processor). It tastes great and the sunflower seed crust is thick and filling. Also, I found out I could have my steel cut oats again...just soak over night. Those are quite satisfying for breakfast...add some fruit and almond milk. Oh and the almond milk blended up with some dates or a banana is super filling...throw in some raw cacao and it's like a thick milk shake. Mmm.
