View Full Version : What do your SAD eating family and friends like?

What are the best SAD eater foods? As I've previously mentioned I live with my family now and am thinking about making some foods they would like. They are already really open minded and healthy.
What would be some yummy things for them. It is hard for me to judge because to me just about everything raw tastes good. I have to put greens in all my smoothies and juices... but to others that looks gross. So I can't really trust my own judgement here!
I'm thinking I'll make RP's brownies (I already know they like these), they like banana ice cream make in the Champion, I could make a big batch of salad dressing, maybe a cabbage colslaw or waldorf salad?
I tried nori rolls and my Dad doesn't like the fishy taste.
Some kind of crackers?
I was making some in the dehydrator but I just ate them all... oops :o . Maybe next time! Lol!
Soup ideas? Nothing with ginger.
I need to search through my books - but if you have experience with SAD eaters let me know! Thanks!

Lucky you. My family will not try anything raw that i make,They automatically think it is nasty and will not even try one little nibble.

Sheeshh... I just moved out of that kind of situation and into a home where people embrace it! Thankfully!
Thanks for the suggestion David but they already know they like fresh fruit... I'm looking for something creative and different for them to try!
Raw Grawnola - Made with oat groats, apples, cinnamon, (agave or honey) walnuts, sliced almonds, and peacans. Then once dehydrated add some raisens (or dates). My husband loves it and he is very sad.
You may also like to try the red pepper hummus. My sad friends liked it but thought it tasted a little earthy.
Also there is a recipe on this site for raw cheesecake. That went over big with my non raw friends. Also the raw fudge on this site was a hit.
Everyone who has tried the Raspberry Vinegarette dressing I made also loved it!

RP's raw choc fudge brownies are almost always a hit with SAD eaters I give them to.
Also, many of the heavier recipes, such as dehydrated 'meat' loafs, crackers with avocado and salad on them, pizzas.
I made dinner for my veggie housemate last night, it was a meatloaf recipe from this site (rolled into balls and dehydrated), and a creamy tomato sauce on top of slivered carrot and zucchini with crumbled nut cheeze on top. He loved it!
Also, any of the chocolate desserts, or fruit pies with nut crusts and some nut cream are good too. Give them something heavy that mimics a SAD food to get them intrigued I think.
Guacamole with veggies to dip.
Nut/raisin bars....my roommate won't touch a vegetable and basically eats nothing raw, but he had one of these yesterday and liked it :)

Fresh fruit platters work for most people. It's "normal food" and most people don't question it. In fact, whenever I bring fresh fruit, people are thankful, and admit it's been a while since they've had a "real pineapple" or fresh grapes.

these are my all time SAD eating RAW and loving it foods
Alissa's pesto stuffed mushrooms (always a winner)
Alissa's enchiladas, with cashew sour cream and fresh quack and salsa
and of course
Rawpriestess famous brownies, LOL
these with a fresh graden salad with some chopped nuts and some olive oil and lemon juice with a bit of spices, makes a delicious meal.
mushrooms as the appetizer, mmmmmmm
Enchiladas as the mail course, served with the salad
and then the brownies as the dessert!!
YEP, converts them every time, at least until they try to make some weird green drink concoction, then we have to start all over again. LOL
