I have been trying to sprout and dehydrate, but it has become a :eek: situation. I will try this weekend to began sprouting. I keep Alissa's book in the kitchen and i review it every chance i can, but honestly i have not had the chance to actually read every chapter,(just a few chapters here and there and browsing at the delicious pictures of FOOD :p ).
Will eating pleanty fruits and veggies and salads be enough when you do not have time to sprout and dehydrate food, until i can apply Alissa's great techniques?

Dehydrating does not take much time.
Put some dry flax seeds in the blender and pour in to a bowl. add sesame seeds and enough water to enable you to pour and then pour in to the dehydrator and spread. The following morning you have enough flax crackers to last you a week.
Later you can start adding other things such as onions or sun dried tomatoes

it will be enough, this is what I do all the time! It all started with me being very busy, and so taking simply bags of fruit to work (instead of making recipes), when I first went raw. It stayed this way till now. In the evening, and during the weekends, when I have more time, I have fun with some recipes. But I am quite happy to just munch on fruit. Yum!

Absolutely!! I mostly eat this way. The dehydrated stuff is usually for when I travel or am away from home for more than a few hours for emergency fuel. I've had an Easy Green Sprouter for over a month now and still haven't hooked it up :D

When I don't have a lot of time I make smoothies, or I will just load up a plate with tomatoes, an avocado, some seaweed, nuts and I am good.

you can buy raw snacks at whole foods and some other stores. here's a link to a good one to Lydia's. the crackers are really good but i wouldn't suggest getting the energy bars. they are really hard. lara bars are okay and you can get really good flax seed crackers nowadays.

My strategy is to get up early on Saturday morning, and whip up some batches all at once. (I try to do 3 or 4 things). Then that's all the dehydrating I do all week, I mostly do salads, fruit, veggies, (and nori rolls), on top of what I've got from Saturday.
Today for example I did a batch of little "burgers", a batch of pizza crusts, and some cookies. I usually do crackers, but I've got some left over.
