I want to stay away from too many nuts and seeds and my salads are getting old. Sometimes I like to take a break and have something different, then I always go back to my salads again. Lately the nut-filled recipes in Alissa's book have been too heavy for me. Any suggestions? I just want to eat lightly for a couple of weeks.

I really enjoy Alissa's zuchinni fettachini "noodles" with her marinara sauce. It's light but really filling.
I also really like wraps. One good recipe is julienned carrots, red bell peppers, slice of avacado, a few leaves of parsley or cilantro, a basil or mint leaf, wrapped in a collard green. I dip this in a sauce made from 1 part nama shoyu, 1 part maple syrup, and minced garlic.
Another easy wrap is what my bf named "caterpillars" :D.
Take a green lettuce leaf or collard green, top with guacomole, sprouts, and sunflower seeds.

I made this (click here) (http://www.living-foods.com/recipes/crunchytaco.html) last night but did it a little differently as I didn't have sundried tomatoes right on hand but had everything else. It was very tasty.
I also made Alissa's Mock Salmon Pate the other night, and while it does call for some walnuts, it wasn't too heavy as the veggies in the recipe took over a little bit. I really liked that, too.
I am planning on trying the 'crunchy taco' recipe on a portabello tonight as it was kind of guacamole-ish and i think it may taste good.
I haven't tried this yet, but you could do Alissa's Angel Hair Pasta and Marinara sauce. I think the sauce was just tomatoes and dates, maybe with a little sea salt.

Hello Pauliegirl, I so do understand about salads getting old. ;) Have you considered making some raw soups. These are very filling and yummy. They are easy to make and are great to take to work, in the car, etc.

I really love the pesto stuffed mushrooms, and I stuff zucchini and yellow squash and tomatoes with it too, it is excellent made with less nuts and some spinach, but also good just as is.

Here is a picture of some Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms. They are great even without dehydrating them.

I hear you on the salad thing!! I am on a much needed break and I found the perfect lunch~ two very large portobellas topped with creamed avocado (usually one avocado mashed with some garlic powder, dehydrated onion and hot pepper flakes) and then I add some tomatos on top of that, either sundried or fresh...this is soo simple, quick and amazingly delish... I also try to get my greens in a smoothie (3 large handfuls of spinach with on bag of frozen tropical fruit)...

Don't forget the desserts! Banana-papya pudding, date nut torte, fudge balls, ice cream, yum!
