I'm Sara, a vegan in college, and I live with my boyfriend (he's also vegan). I've made a few raw meals before (like kelp noodles with a cashew sauce), and want more ideas and help for raw eating.
Mainly, I'm of course broke, and can't afford any fancy anything (juicer, dehydrator), and would LOOOVE suggestions on raw recipes that are interesting and fun, but don't require heavy machinery ;)
I can't wait to get to know everyone! Let's eat... :eat

Do you have a blender or a food processor? If so, you could do things like pesto over zucchini noodles, or "milk"shakes of just about any kind.. our favorites are pecan-banana and almond-banana-cinnamon. You could also use your blender to make easy soups and dips and things like that. Or if you want to just keep it simple, there are about a zillion different ways to do green salad!

Yes! The BF's mom gave me a really nice blender/food processor for my birthday this year, it works so much better than my cheap blender that would smoke up when making smoothies lol.
Do you have tips on getting noodles out of my zucchini? and unfortunately, I've never been much of a salad person hahaha.

Yes, it's super easy to get noodles out of zucchini. All you really need is a vegetable peeler. Just wash your zucchini, and then peel off the outer dark green parts and discard them (or you can keep them in the mix if you want)... then just start going around the zucchini, peeling strips of 'noodles' with your veggie peeler.. it'll look a little bit like fettuccine. Now, I also have a tool called a spiralizer that makes swirly noodle looking shapes out of the zucchini, but to be honest, I prefer the texture and look of the noodles I get by just using my vegetable peeler! Then you can top your noodles with anything you like... tomato sauce, creamy cashew sauce, salad dressing, spices, whatever floats your boat!

Welcome, I'm a newbie to! I've sometimes just used a spoon to mix things up. I love cutting up strawberries and mixing it together with a spoon. Might not be the same thing but hey, it still taste great to me!

I'm going to try to make some zucchini noodles tonight. I'm not so talented with a vegetable peeler (I have cuts to prove that haha), but maybe with a bit of practice!
