I've been a bit of a lurker for awhile and have decided to join. I'm reading through Alissa's book right now and have the DVD to watch. Um, I don't really know what else to say right now! Hi everyone! <waves>
Oh ya, I'm 29 and have eaten SAD all my life.

Well Unearthed Beauty, now you will see just how beautiful you can truly be!Isn't Alissa's book great? And the DVD too! She comes across as such a genuine person - not trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes at all. Hope you feel welcome here and I look forward to reading your posts.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm sure I'll have some questions along the way.
I tried to pick up some groceries that I couldn't find the other day and am still at a loss--it seems avocados, raspberries, and papayas have taken a little break from our grocery stores. Well, the avocados are there; they're just as mushy as mud though.
I took Alissa's advice, though, and picked up a couple of things that I either have never tried or don't like, with the hopes that it will taste different (and better) in a raw recipe: fennel (never had it before) and ginger (YUCK!). If one of her recipes calls for ginger, does it mean ginger root? That's what I picked up, for carrot soup. This is going to be a real learning process--I'm not really sure what to do with it, lol (the ginger that is).
So far I've learned how to get the "meat" off of a mango, how to properly handle the woes of a pineapple, how to fix a pomegranate, among others. I guess now I'll learn how to use ginger! Today I also learned that fennel and anise are the same--please tell me I got that right, because the recipe calls for fennel and I came home with anise, lol.
Raw Yogini, I live in very southern Idaho.

Welcome.....I love Idaho.....I grew up there and moved about the age you are right now. Ginger isn't something I would like alone but a hint of it in some dishes really can make it incredible vs. average.....it reminds me of chinese food. Enjoy Alissa's book....actually it sounds like you already are. The 1st weeks menu recipes are really good recipes to start out with....they are easy and have a nice flavor. I believe some of them are shown on the DVD - how to prepare them. Good Luck and welcome.
