I love strawberries and bananas together!

I cut my oranges up and de-membrane them so they're not sour and eat them with sliced strawberries - YUM

Okay, I already know this is weird, but I must have every day Black greek olives and orange juice. I don't know why, but I love it,
Now for something more normal:
Barley Burgers and pizza wrap with lettuce and tomato and hot salsa, like a tostada thingy.
Actually, rp...black olives and orange juice sounds kind of good!

I adore salad consisting grated cabbage, and cucumber with a dressing made from mashed avocado and alissa's mock salmon pate. It is straight addictive for me.
Also like pudding made from bananas and mangos...topped with fresh grated mature coconut.
Hubby likes the onion bread made famous on this board, topped with thinly sliced avocado, tomatoes and cucumbers. (And he is not even a raw-foodie!)

Okay I know these will sound simple but I adore these combo's
limeade with cucumber (juiced limes, agave,water,& long slices of cucumbers)
watermelon/cucumber salad ( cube sized mixed, pinch of celtic sea salt)
oranges & red bell peppers
pineapples & vidalia (or walla walla) onions & red onions
Like I said VERY simple but ooooohhhhhh sooooooooo good ;)
I will try the black olives & orange and the rest of the hints, I just ate & I'm wanting to run to the fridge to make these.

I'm in LOVE with soaked goji berries swimming in a pool of raw cocnut milk! :)
My favorite right now is a pint of strawberries blended with a bit of agave and the meat of a young coco (or two, if there's not much).
This is SUCH a heavenly strawberry pudding! Oh!1 My SAD eating bf licks his bowl clean every time I'm nice enough to share it with him! :p

Wolfberry, a.k.a. gogi berries a.k.a. lycium barbarum fruit:
Wolfberrys value to human health has been known by Chinese healers since the Tang Dynasty (1000-1400 AD) for its multiple health benefits. Wolfberry fruits are used in many herbal formulas to maintain overall health when suffering from chronic conditions, such as weariness of the loins and legs, dizziness and ringing in the ear, visual degeneration, headaches, insomnia, chronic liver diseases, diabetes, tuberculosis, and hypertension. Modern scientists have verified the ancient medical secrets of the wolfberry.
The main active component of the fruit is the Lycium Barbarum Polysaccharide (LBP). Wolfberry contains 19 types of amino acids and 21 trace minerals. It has more beta-carotene than carrots and nearly as much Vitamin C as oranges and protein as bee pollen.
Other studies from China show the acetone extract from wolfberry fruit inhibits the gene mutation induced by TA98 and TA1008. Some scientists believe that wolfberry fruit may be a very good supplement to prevent liver cancer because it exerts liver protection and anticancer effects at the same time. Japanese researchers reported wolfberry fruits could inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

I'm pretty sure hummus is raw.... (the ones without the roasted ingredients) so I eat carrots with eggplant hummus. I love it!
07-12-2005, 06:38 PM
maybe the EGGPLANT hummus is ,but not regular chickb pea hummus it has cooked chickpeas ,so watch out!
mine would be sweet potato "rice" with cucumber , mango and pickled ginger wrapped in nori :D YUMMMMY!

I'm pretty sure hummus is raw.... (the ones without the roasted ingredients) so I eat carrots with eggplant hummus. I love it!It's only raw if you make it yourself. Or, if you buy it from a raw food restaurant or a health food store that carries raw food in its deli. If it doesn't say raw, it's not raw.
I like fresh dates and kalamata olives together.

07-17-2005, 05:54 AM
Apples,bananas,strawberries all mixed with cashewnut butter what a treat that is to my mouth and all the way down to my stomach.

My favorite combo would have to be bananas and strawberries! And the way I have been enjoying this is making banana-strawberry fruit leather and using it as a roll-up with banana inside (a bit of cinnamon sprinkled on top before rolling it up) and then putting strawberries, a bit of water, and some agave in the blender to make a sauce for the top of the roll-up. Yum, I could live on this! I guess this is a version of Alissa's wonderful crepes!

Oh, where do I start?
I'm juicing right now, so my favorite juice (for the day, it changes daily) is celery, cucumber peach with some ginger.
When I go back to green smoothies, I'm heading for the cantaloupe, banana, kale, ginger and a little bit of lemon.
Just eatin' favorites (of course, this changes daily, too, depending on what's in stock in the home refrigerator!) are bananas and peanut butter, avocado with a tiny pinch of salt and some pepper alternated with ripe tomatoes, and cucumber and jicama slices dipped in homemade raw tahini.....mouth watering.
Oops! My mouth IS watering! Uh oh, time to make another delicious juice combo!

i just made the best smoothie: 2 handfuls of spinach with 2 very ripe peaches! it was soooooo good (surprisingly, since i havent made a green smoothie before i didn't know what to expect!) and very filling! try it everyone!
