View Full Version : Raw snack ideas and quick raw meals for one?
07-24-2009, 12:09 AM
Not sure if this is the right area to post this, but I am looking for some quick snack/small meal ideas that are easy to make. I am vegan and eat about 75% raw and I am trying to switch to 100% raw. I still have to cook for my husband who won't do completely raw (but he is vegan) so I am looking for just small easy things I can eat. Oh and I am trying to lose weight- so I make mostly green smoothies and fresh veggie juices right now or have fruit as a snack. Thanks for any suggestions about snack ideas:D

Eating in a hurry varies for me. If I am hungry and want it now but can take time to eat it at the PC then it is ice cream.
If I am rushing out the door and have to eat in the car and he is driving then it is a melon.
If I am driving then it is a green smoothie.

Lettuce or nori wraps, soup, puddings, pate/dip on cucumber slices or by itself, Avocado w/dash of salt, marinated mushrooms. If you pre-make the more time consuming stuff you'll always have things when you need it.

A cup of blueberries and 1/4 to 1/2 cup of pecans.

Almost everything I eat (lately, everything, really) is quick and simple to make. Do you have a blender? food processor? dehydrator?
I love soups made in my vitamix. They are really satisfying and so quick. Though I am open to making other recipes, I have been making http://thesunnyrawkitchen.blogspot.com/2008/10/recipe-of-week-cheezy-corn-chowder.html and http://www.rawfreedomcommunity.info/forum/showthread.php?t=1827 a lot because I know for sure that I like them.
Other snacks might be--
-celery sticks filled with guacamole, eggless egg salad, almond butter or other nut butter or cheese
-dates with a pecan/s or almonds shoved inside-- it is just like pecan pie, no kidding
-bell pepper pizzas--halve bell peppers and top with marinara and/or nut cheese and toppings like red onion, mushrooms, olives, tomatoes, basil etc
- bell pepper nachos-- halve them again and top with avacado/guacamole, tomato, cilantro, jalapenos..maybe onions or Morn's the bomb cheese dip
-bell pepper veggie sandwiches--use the two seeded, pithed halves as you would 2 slices of bread and fill with veggie sandwich ingredients like avacado, alflafa srouts, red onion, mushrooms,tomato,lettuce, pickles, olives etc.
-if you make a batch of crackers or bread you can use that as a snack in many ways--topped with almond butter and dripping with honey and cinnamon, avacado w/ cayenne pepper, any of the spreads & cheeses etc
--trail mix-For me its walnuts and raisins with sea salt--but you can add many different seeds and nuts and other dried fruit or cracker bits etc as you like--very good purse food=p
--i used to like lara bars alot, some(?) are raw
--I second the walnut taco meat..and it makes a great romaine lettuce leaf taco

Thanks for the tips everyone!
I forgot about lettuce wraps:) I have a great book by Carol Alt with easy raw recipes. And yes, I have a dehydrator but I find I haven't been using it all that much lately because I am "un-cooking" for only myself.
That's a great idea about the vitamix soups... I have always wanted to try those. Thank you for the links:) I love my vitamix and couldn't live without it!

Figs & Almond Butter, or Banana & Almond Butter are two of my favorite snacks

I love making nori wraps since they are quick and easy. Also miso soup (warm water, miso, cut green onion and mixed greens, dulse).
I also make raw food for one person. My significant other won't even try my food (what a baby LOL :P). Too bad some of us rawfooders don't live closer together so we could share suppers :rolleyes:

The good thing about dehydrators is that you can make up batches of stuff and have it around for a while for whenever you feel like eating a cracker or cookie or whatever. It keeps. (not that I have a dehydrator of my own yet. Sigh.)
I am not very innovative with the snacks. I love celery, plain. Fermented pickles and olives. Fruit. Sometimes dried fruit but not all that much. Nuts and/or seeds (I do try to eat these individually). I can often eat a whole cucumber by itself. Red pepper slices. A bag of baby carrots and some almonds. Green beans or peas in the shell (ooh, my favourite!). Pints of berries. Pineapple.
Tacos are so easy but I eat cooked beans so... you could try a lettuce leaf or hollowed out cucumber with seed pate (so easy to make up and store in the fridge for snacks), sprouts, shredded veg, cherry tomatoes. Mmm, now I'm hungry!
Boring? Maybe, but I like them.

My new favorite snack is walnut butter mixed with some raw honey and carob powder and dip apples in it. It is easy and so good!
