I am trying to put together a workbook to help keep myself raw. Any suggestions of what I could put in it???

What a great idea! I'll keep watching this thread to see what everyone says. .
Something I'm trying to put together for myself is a list of really easy recipes (things that can be done within minutes) and also a list of how long a recipe really takes (including soaking/dehydrating time).

Alissa mentions six steps to success in her book -- all excellent points and might help you if you have her book. If you don't have her book, I recommend it as an EXCELLENT purchase. The DVD is good too although there was a bit too much gabbing in there for me on repeat viewings.
Also, what I've started doing is storing recipes from this forum and from my various RAW FOOD books into livingcookbook software. That way, you have ready access to all your recipes that you've tried. You can even rate each recipe, create grocery lists from certain recipes you want to try (a big timesaver). Then print out your own recipe book with notes etc... That way, you have a quick reference for the foods you like. After you're on this plan for awhile, you may want to start simplifying by eating things that require less preparation -- at least that's what I'm trying to more and more.
I GOT TIRED of handling all the individual recipes and multiple cookbooks lying around. Now, everything is stored on my computer for easy/quick access. Eventually, I'll print out my favorites as a reference and keep just one book in the kitchen for reference.

I've got my own "workbook" of sorts. More of a working cookbook. I have a three ring binder w/ clear sleeves or jackets for each page. I put in recipes w/ all my notes on what I liked about a recipe, what changes I would make in doing it again, thoughts on what other recipes/foods would pair well with it, cost: if it was maybe not worth it, etc... Its not very organized at present but I know if I'm in a pinch to prepare something I know I'll like... I have a record of stuff I know I do!
Good luck w/ your workbook. It sounds kinda like a scrapbook -- I think it's a great idea!

I started a "workbork" when I first got into RAW. It has a list of recipies, those I liked and those I did not like and why, as I forget otherwise. I also use it as a journal - not for everyday but for things that worked and did'nt. Also positive affermations, what I felt like before going RAW; before and after pictures ect. and a plcae for all the print outs from this site
My favorite aspect is a keep pictures of the RAW meals that I've liked. I also print off pics of food people have posted here. I espectially liked the thread not to long algo of RAW kitchens.
Good Luck :p

Also what I feel like after diverging from RAW having eaten cooked. I right down those feeling right after so they are fresh. . .it's amazing to see that even my handwriting is different! :(

Pictures of before during and after of people who have lost weight and mecial challenges.
Pictures of beautiful raw foods, fresh and perpared.
Raw appliances, that you have or to put on a wish list
Raw retreats you wish to attend
Classes you wish to take
Raw gurus and their stories
Pictures of raw kids
Pictures of raw pets and their raw families
Whatever your true Heart's desire is.
Such as, if you wish to lose weight, a picture of a thin body, with your face on a scale, that has your perfect weight on it.
If you wish to be healthier, then a picture of a healthy body, with your face and the persons doing what you wish to do, like sky diving, or mountain climbing, or getting married in a beautifu small size dress etc.
But, whatever you do, make it a fun thing. :)
Make your workbook fun! I have a composition notebook, actually two notebooks devoted to raw food. I even have the same notes where I thought about requesting a juice machine and salad spinner for my bridal registry. I have things I've ripped out of magazines,etc. Recipes and affirmations.
