I'm new to being Raw..and I'm having a hard time with finding easy and really good recipes to have made so I can grab something when I'm hungry and busy...I do not own a dehydrator..but I would love for people to give me some of their fav., easy to make, filling recipes..and if u could include how long they usually last in the frig. that would be great....I'm also a poor 20-something and if anyone is getting a new dehydrator and they would like to get rid of their old one..I would love to possibly buy it from them:) ..thanx for all of your helps:D

I think that there are alot of things to eat! Bananas make great shakes and ice cream!! Who wouldn't want that for breakfast??:) Fruits always easy and easy to find on sale. Avo and romaine wraps and may be spurlge on some raw almonds! I love to make basics like avo,tomato and cucumber with sea salt and raw apple vinegar. Some some ideas..... No juicer or dehydrater needed.
Mash 1/4 avacado, dice 1/8 small onion, and 1/4 tomato. Mix together with a little salt. Put on top of a portabella mushroom. Top with alfalfa sprouts.
Modified from Alissa's recipe.

Salads! Throw together 2 or 3 different green leafy vegetables, add some other ingredients (like pine nuts, tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, seaweed, olives, apple, raisins, etc -- not all at once, obviously), and add a dressing (olive oil + vinegar, or something with chopped nuts). Easy to make, very filling. :)

my favorite easy meal is sliced bananas and strawberries with almond butter mixed with maple syrup (or honey). It is so yummy!!! If I have the ingredients for that at home, then I am good to go!!!

1/2 - 1 Tsp Sea Salt
2 - 5 Garlic Cloves
1 Head Cilantro
Juice of 1 Lemon or Lime
BLEND in food processor. Best dip, spread, pudding, you name it around! :-) And a great way to eat raw garlic!

Green smoothies would probably meet a lot of your needs. Easy & you can make 5-6 quarts all at once and then drink them over 2-3 days. Here is simple recipe that I defy anyone to dislike.
1 small bunch spinach (about 4 ounces)
12oz package frozen unsweetened cherries
16 oz cold water
Blend well. Better then any milkshake you ever had.

One of my favorites is bananas with date sauce
Very simple. Chop up a bunch of bananas, and then blend some dates with just enough water to make it creamy and pourable,and pour over the bananas.
oh it's yummy

My favourite smoothie atm:
2 teaspoons raw goji berries (soaked for 5 minutes before)
1 frozen banana
1 unfrozen banana
1 orange (peeled)
1 cup frozen mango
1/2 a serving size of Nutiva hemp powder (full serving makes it gritty)
1 tablespoon raw coconut butter
Coconut water (I don't measure this, I usually put in 1/2 a can)
Sooooo tropical and good :D
I'm trying to use lots of raw coconut butter and water to rev up my thyroid. I think I kicked it while it was down with huge kale salads every day :(

I love Raw Cookie Dough
2 Cups Pecans (not soaked)
1 Tbs Olive oil (or make butter using olive oil & celtic sea salt in a small ice cube tray put in freezer)
1 Tbs. honey
1 Tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp or a bit less of celtic sea salt
Blend above ingredients in the food processer until smooth. Add 1 Tbs. Chocolate Nibs and pulse for 20 seconds. Scoop out and keep in the fridge. Any time you get hungry make a dough ball and eat~ yum!! :D

with a package of raw nori sheets (a splurge that's worth it and lasts for a long time, making lots of sushi and sandwiches that will keep you going for weeks, even months), a bag of veggies and fruits, maybe some nuts or seeds, and a head of large leafed romaine lettuce, you'll be able to feast for a really long time freshly and deliciously.
for instance, a nori sheet filled with romaine lettuce leaves, and alissa's mock tuna salad (made with very few ingredients, mostly veggies) will make a delicious tuna sandwhich, very filling, quick and inexpensive.
the lettuce leaves can also be used as the "bread", with anything wrapped up inside to create amazing sandwiches, my favorite PB&J is a small handful of raw nuts ground into a "butter" with some sea salt and water or flax oil to make it creamy, spread inside lettuce leaves or nori sheets ( i know it sounds odd but it's so good!) and some chopped mango slices, or banana pieces or a drizzle of raw honey, or other mashed fruit. . . filling and delicious.
any of the fresh organic veggies can be thrown into a blender and water added, or anything else that you can imagine (nut milks, avocado, etc.) and you have made wonderful soups that are filling and use very little ingredients (once again, inexpensive).
try a soup and sandwich combo. . . perfect for lunch at work or school or dinner.
smoothies can be made with the same ingredients above, either green ones or fruit or a combination. adding the water definitely makes the ingredients go further and fills you up while keeping you hydrated.
there are so many choices, but maybe these could get you started?
bananas, avocados, mangos, romaine lettuce or spinach, and apples i find are very versatile items, and can often be found very inexpensively and organic- which is key for anything you're not peeling. . .
good luck!!! (and have fun!)
served in equal parts olive oil and lemon juice, dash sea salt, and diced parsley or cilantro to taste.

I also love the almond milk with some raw caco powder and some bananna & ice mixed up in the vitamix.
