Hi I have been trying out a vegetarian lifestyle for some time and Im keen to try a raw lifestyle. Does any know of ways to make raw meals without all the appliances all I have is a blender Im a bit poor. Any links? Also can you eat beans in the raw food diet?? thanks for reading :)

all you pretty much need is a blender to make soups, smoothies, sauces and such. food processor would be sweet to have too but if not its not too big of a deal! :) and you can eat sprouted beans but not canned or anything like that. hope this helps!

I tend to like to keep things simple myself, so even though I have all the raw kitchen gadgetry, I find I use the blender most and often don't use any appliance for my meals. I find this helps me eat more simply, which I'm finding my body likes right now. A huge bowl of oranges, a plate of dates and celery logs... yup, pretty basic! :D
You don't need fancy raw food preparation machines, you just need yummy food, the willingness to eat it, and creativity! Oh, and a good knife never hurts! ;)
Although right now I'm wanting to get a julienne peeler... another thread mentioned it and it seems inexpensive, easy to use, and creates great food presentation! Thought I'd mention that since it might be fun for you and within a budget.

Mmm, that sounds yummy! I like miso; such a nice, strong flavour, good for mixing in with my rather bland pulp soups! ;)

Yum I had miso soup also! Not as fancy though just miso and dulce. :)
