View Full Version : DD8 want to go raw
09-13-2005, 02:31 PM
My DD8 who is a vegetarian / aspiring vegan wants to try raw. Since I am new to this myself trying to find yummy easy items for meals and snacks is a bit daunting.
fresh fruits and veggies
veggie slices w/almond butter dip
"ants on a log", celery, almond butter, & raisins
I have a blender, food proccessor, and juicer to work with.
Fast snacks on hand would be great such as cookies would probably be a good idea. Any one have raw kids and "kid friendly" ideas?

Here are a few things I have posted before regarding snacks and such for my children's lunches.
I must say though finding snacks to make became WAY easier once I got a dehydrator. I've heard you can pick one up at wal-mart cheap, cheap.
Other than those mentioned in the above link you could try,
nut butter (I use almond) agava, crushed nuts and carob or powdered cacao mixed by hand in a bowl. Doesn't look pretty....tastes devine.
freeze bananas then mash and flavor if you'd like with vanilla, carob, cacao or even crushed strawberries. A simple raw ice cream.
See now if you had a dehydrator you could dehydrate creamed bananas and make ice cream cones!!!!! I can't remember where I read that, I do believe it's from Alissa, not to, to sure. And I haven't tried it yet so I can't say how good that would work but it sounds Great, infact I'm trying it tomorrow. I'll let you know how it works.
How about pudding?? Avocado, carob/cacao/coco powder, agava/banana to sweeten (maybe water to thin out a bit). Put all in blender till smooth. Done with a Yum!
A trail mix of rasins, nuts, goji berries, seeds etc....
Apple sauce using your blender.
Blend berries and freeze in freeze pop molds.
Blend up some ice to make crushed ice and then make a syrup (again blended berries with your choice of sweetener, agava, dates, honey) to pour on top...aka a raw snow cone or slushy. Not sure how powerful your blender is, but I'd think you wouldn't want date chunks in your snow cone???
My daughter LOVES almonds pushed into dates!
Hope you enjoy!

I don't think it's in the book, I'm not sure. I really don't remember where I read this one. I thought it may have been from Alissa but I really can't remember :confused:
Sorry, all I know is it is GREAT!!!!
