View Full Version : Comfort foods???
07-21-2005, 05:39 PM
I was really sick this morning...and stayed RAW except for the couple of saltine crackers I had to settle my stomach. (I can hear the moans now, but I'm new to this and wasn't prepared for the sickening migraine I got this morning) Now I'm craving a comfort type food....and have no idea what to do now. NO dehydrator, or anything fancy. I would love a few recipes with something "warm" but mild....and easy to make...that shouldn't be too hard...yeah right :rolleyes: OR what do ya'll eat when you want a comfort food.....???

I love the Banana Ice Cream!!!! I put some carob, almond butter and almonds and it's almost like rocky road!!!!!
You can get a cheap dehydrator at WalMart, the Harvest. I paid $30's for mine. It didn't come with screens, so I made some out of craft mesh. Then I made the morning muffins out of Alissa's book. These work great for me!!!!

I like halved avacados filled with chopped onions.

My comfort foods: avocadoes, miso soup, chili (search for the recipe) and little fudge balls.

My idea of comfort food is probably much different than you are thinking...but here it is....
Anything raw...sounds weird, but my comfort is in knowing that it's all good for me....so, in that, I am comforted....probably sounds very strange, but it's true. It's so hot here (103-110 for a couple of weeks now) that I can't even enjoy eating anything warm. Ask again in the winter, and my answer may be different.

Put the Almonds and Water into the Blend-Tec, vita mixer or food processor

flatten into cookie 2 shapes make sure they are well compacted, spoon desired amount of â ceamy filling in between 2 of the cookies and enjoy.
The cream filling can be:Almond Or Cashew "Whipped Cream"
by Abbey's Vegetarian Recipes
1 cup almonds or cashews
ľ cup water
1 Tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
˝ teaspoon vanilla (optional)
Soak 1 cup of almonds or cashews in 2 cups of water. If you're in a very warm climate, soak them in your refrigerator. After 8-12 hours, discard the soaking water and rinse the nuts. In a blender, place the nuts and enough fresh water to allow the blender to operate. Blend, gradually adding enough water to achieve a smooth consistency. Yields 1 ˝ - 1 ľ cups.

Thanks ya'll. I love these suggestions......My cravings did pass, I actually was looking through my cupboards, and felt a strong craving for raisins (I never eat raisins) and ate some and BOOM....my comfort food craving was gone. I was soooo proud of myself. Next time my craving may be for those RAWEO cookies. ;) I guess you really CAN make everything raw!

In one week when I am moved I am looking forward to making a big pumpkin pie with the whipped cream all over it. That will be my comfort food for a week. There is a Whole Foods near there so I will stock up on all the thing I have not been able to get for so long. Watch out charge card.

I assume you mean Raw... Recipe PLEASE!! I just pulled off two of my very own home grow heirloom pumpkins last night with MORE on the way. We planted them a bit early (not knowing what we were doing) and we have July pumpkins right now. hehehe I would LOVE a pumpkin pie recipe... I'll have to go get Alissa's book and see if she has one.

I just opened Alissa's book and found a recipe. COOL! I'm going to try this today. :D

Yes I mean raw. I looked up the one that is in her book for sweet potato pie and it is very much like the recipe I use. I do use carrots and sweetpotatoes both in mine. When I don't want all the nuts I just make pumpkin pudding out of the same recipe. :)
