View Full Version : Would like some recipe ideas
05-22-2007, 11:49 AM
Recently I've been having the same things every day.
Fruits for breakfast. For lunch and dinner a big salad with tomato, different types of greens, broccoli, sprouts, cucumber and avocado. For snack I have more fruit and sometimes a small salad (same as for lunch/dinner) or carrot sticks.
I need some variation!
So.. Do you have any ideas for yummy recipes that are easy to make and doesn't contain lots of seeds/nuts/oils?
I do not have a dehydrator or blender. Just a very small (not very good) food processor (can handel about one serving of marinara sauce or pesto)

Do you have Alissa's book? It's got a ton of recipes in it. And search here on the boards - loads of info. Use the banana or the search...

I know the feeling, so, I got some ingredients to make something different for a change. For dinner tonight I'm planning a carrot and butternut squash soup.
Here's what I have planned:
2 cups butternut squash, cubed.
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 medium onion
3 cloves garlic
Fresh herbs and scallion to garnish
Hopefully it will turn out great and if anyone has some pre-emptive suggestions to make it better, feel free to advise :)
I posted an easy corn salad recipe in this thread
You can make the dressing in a small processor.

Thanks for the tips!
JEN: your salad sounds really good. I haven't found fresh corn here yet but I will try that dressing tomorrow. I'm in the mood for something spicy :)

I love hummus spread in a large red pepper! I stuff the pepper and I might sprinkle the top of it with a hand full of flax seed, pumpkin seed, sesame seed and salba seeds lol. I dont mind the crunch of seeds.. I actually love it. lol.
I love to eat stuffed mushrooms. Make a simple pesto and stuff button mushrooms with it and eat it raw or marinate the mushroom first so its not so "fresh".
Make a salad with raw corn, broccoli, cauliflower, snow peas.. just about anything different and interesting that you won't get bored of.
Banana ice cream is good. Freeze banana pieces and toss them in your processor with a bit or water to help get it going. Then serve! Yum! I have a 1 cup food processor from wal-mart. It's a sad looking thing but It does work for banana ice cream lol so urs might too.
I love making cookies! take the cinnamon roll recipe and dont dehydrate it. It's so good! Roll it into balls or flatten it. Dip the balls in coconut slivers or cinnamon powder.
Ooooh baby I'm getting hungry!!!
