wouldn't it be cool if we had like monthly challenges?
like we could pick a random staple recipe like... mango avocado salsa or lasagna or pasta... and then everyone can post recipes and photos of their twist on the recipe.
or we could choose some random fruit or veggie like... make april beet month, and then everyone can make a recipe using beets and we can compare.
nothing to be won, just support and inspiration from each other.

Sounds yummy and inspiring.
I am really liking this idea. :)

I think an ingredient of the month would be a great idea. That would be such a good resource in the future too. So many people come on and wonder, "I have a ton of _________, what can I make with it?" Threads like that would be invaluable.

i was about to suggest that it be an in season fruit, but then i remembered that we all live in different places of the world. =)
what should april's food be?
i vote to start we should do an easy one like apple or carrot.

This sounds like a great idea!

OK, circle, since you had the idea and it seems there is some interest, I vote for you to pick the monthly ingredient! Let's get this going!

I like this too!
I like this idea too. It would have to be a fairly basic ingredient to make sure everyone who wanted to take part could get hold of it.

I love that idea! I am just returning to get back to my raw foodie ways.. and I think that would be a great way to jump back in!!!

i'll start a new thread.

I was just thinking last night that this would be a great idea. I'm really glad that some one beat me to it!!

At the risk of giving an obvious apple recipe, I will nevertheless continue because this mayo is awesome. It is Karen Knowler's and is delicious. It is, however, quite rich, and expensive, so I save it for special occasions. (I really like Alissa's mayo for everyday.)
Karen Knowler's Mayo
Makes 4 cups
Keeps 5-7 days in fridge
1 C water
1 C macadamia nuts
1 C pine nuts
1 1/2 C cashews
1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp lemon juice.
Process in processor with S blade, mixing very well. Add more water if necessary. Will thicken in fridge, so make a little runnier.
This is one of my "go-to" recipes because it's so versatile. I always use whatever is on hand and/or needs using up. I use any of the following:
Chopped apples (duh!)
Chopped walnuts or pecans
This is the classic recipe. I sometimes add:
Add mayo slowly, as much as your taste dictates.

1 C Spring Mix (a lettuce mix)
1/2 C sprouts
1 apple, shredded
1/2 C grapes, halved
1/2 C soaked, then dehydrated almonds, chopped
juice from 1 lemon, lime, or orange
Sorry! No pictures.
