:D Yummy food to cook.....
Do you have Alissa's book?? The pesto stuffed mushrooms are great and easy (might be a recipe floating around if you don't have it), so are the garden flax crackers.
But honestly, flax crackers are so easy I rarely use a recipe. I just soak some flax in a bit over double the water, and start mixing some chopped up goodies. They sometimes are AMAZING and sometimes just hit the spot with the crunch...

My favorite is in my dehydrator right now. It is from Alissa's book, though I play around with the ingredients sometimes. Sweet potato chips are wonderful. I was lucky enough that my husband found his old salad shooter from many moons ago, so I slice up the sweet potatoes really thin on that thing. Then I marinate the slices for a while in lime juice/olive oil/sea salt/cayenne. Drain them, spread them out on the trays then dehydrate until crisp. I've even thought I should start keeping the juice left over from draining them because I'll bet it would make a great salad dressing. I've also tried them with lemon juice and it's good as well, but prefer the lime.

If your juicing, use your veggie pulp with soaked flax added, INSTANT veggie/flax crackers.....cheap, cheap, cheap.
Also, I save my almond or other nut pulp when I make milk....dehydrate the pulp...then grind in the grinder for great flour, which you can make pie crusts from or even add that to your veggie/flax crackers for a different crunch. I think there is a recipe on the board for "Mediterranean Almond Bread"....I know you can adjust that with different veggies, etc.
Always save your leftover pulp or dehydrate veggies before they go bad....even greens like collards, kale can be made into chips before they go bad (I'm the only raw eater in my family, so sometimes I can't use it all up....so I marinate greens and dehydrate to make yummy chips!!)

These are my absolute faves!
Simple and cheap to make. It tastes like toasted cinnamon raisin bread.

I second on the pesto stuffed mushrooms from Alissa's book. Also fruit leather is very simple and good also in her book. Have fun.
