BTW ,you dont NEED the garnishes or avocado -and you can add some of the carrot pulp back in to thicken it in lue of the avo.

I really think sharing ideas w/others is the key to this lifestyle. So many people just do not understand (think we eat carrots/celery sticks) When I tell them what I eat, they are amazed.
I think I found a few people to start a Group in my area. I've only been Raw about 3-4 weeks ( not consistant) but will be 100 % now that I know what I'm doing.
It was fun today, as I could talk to these people at the Health food store & I actually new what I was saying & they were looking at me like I'm an "expert". This site just helps you learn soooo much. I think learning builds confidence & w/that you finally can do the 100% that you're yearning for.
Gotta go. :p Later, :)

One time I made a "chili" soup - tomatoes blended (you MIGHT have to add a little water) and then add diced onions, celery and bell peppers, chili powder, garlic or garlic powder, cumin and some sea salt.
It was pretty good. I've never been much of a soup person myself, but it was pretty tasty.

Sounds great, as I have been craving something w/tomatoes/chili type. I tried the squash soup & had to toss.
I didn't answer your plea for support, as there were sooo many replies, but you were in my thoughts. :)
I have been going through the same thing, (it would be day 17 today-had I not cheated)-but I started over, & your letter really inspired me. My best to you as you Rock -Girl.... Always w/an answer !!! :p
My two favorite soups:
Cream of Red Bell Pepper Soup
by Shazzie at Shazzie.com
1 red bell pepper
4 sun dried tomatoes (rehydrated)
4 tablespoons of macadamia cream
2 dried apricots (rehydrated)
Juice the orange, and add the juice to the blender. Chop all other
ingredients and add to the blender. Blend until liquid.
Shazzies Macadamia cream
Add this to soups, dressings or smoothies as and when desired. It also is good served on top of your mid-day fruit.Make enough for 2 days and stir if needed before use.
10 macadamia nuts
1 orange, juiced
4 normal or 2 medjool dates, stoned
Add all ingredients to a coffee mill and blend until totally smooth. This might take several goes depending on the power of your mill.
Butternut Squash Soup
From Raw: The Uncook Book by Juliano
3 cups Butternut Squash, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 mango, cubed
2 teaspoons curry
4 cups orange juice
½ cup honey or dates
1 plantain or banana, sliced
½ cup chopped mint
A pinch of minced jalapeno
1 mango, seeded, peeled and diced
