mmmm... right now I'm eating ... hmm... not sure what they're called in english... wee oranges... mandarines? clementines? Anyway they're delicious.
Other than that I'm currently hooked on raw tacos and raw chilli. I'm using your recipe but I'm omitting the tomatoes and instead of barley I'm using sunflower sprouts. It's so GOOD! :D

I'm eating pink grapefruit like it's going out of style :) Also craving my own V-8 juice with lemon twist...and everything sesame. Hey Alissa, you're a Jewish soul sister, maybe you'll have an idea about this: You know those little sweet hard sesame/honey candies wrapped in clear plastic (the little rectangular ones favored by everyone's grandma :)) ? Well, I've got a major hankering for them, and I mean major! Any ideas about making them? I need them small and nicely shaped and crunchy...can the dehydrator do this i wonder?
12-02-2004, 10:07 AM
I woke up thinking about sesame goodies this morning, lol. I used to get this sesame honey type of energy bar....yummy
I am having oranges and bananas - our market had a 1/2 price sell in produce yesterday....clemantines, valencias, bananas, apples, I am set (for a little while)

Make the nut brittle. its awesome! And it what your looking for. You can roll them into little tiny balls or squares if you want.

Lately I've been enjoying sweet, juicy pears. I've also been loving collard wraps.
12-02-2004, 10:46 AM
I made two quarts of grapefruit/clementine juice to take to work with me today, and have a bunch of bananas at my side (too hard to eat citrus at my desk, so the juice works better). Another raw day! :)
12-02-2004, 10:50 AM
I'm having a power smoothie made from: young coconut meat, organic blueberries, hemp protein powder, vitamineral green, and filtered water. Lately, I've been loving the hemp protein smoothies!!!! I just feel so good after eating them. Sometimes I add vitamineral green and sometimes not. Also, sometimes I substitute banana for the coconut meat, or use other kinds of berries. It's such a satisfying meal!
12-02-2004, 10:51 AM
Oh, and my other favorite meal is kale salad with tomato and onion (sometimes with avocado and sometimes not). It's the one by Chad Sarno in Alissa's book, just varied to my own taste.
12-02-2004, 11:28 AM
As I type I'm having my first meal of the day! A smoothie of frozen mango and pineapple with some almond milk and two bananas. Yum! I've also been eating lots of sliced apple with almond butter and salads. I'm actually craving crispy lettuce!
12-02-2004, 11:40 AM
Mmm. I'm having kale & portobello mushrooms marinated in nama shoyu, olive oil & some ginger. A perfect "warming" salad to go with the beautiful snowfall we're having right now!
12-02-2004, 11:47 AM
lol well I am hooked right now on:
1 cup of almond milk
1 or 2 froze bananas
1/2 cup of froze blueberries
some water if to thick
Have this for breakfast, yum!
12-02-2004, 12:01 PM
Well I just finished my orange juice with superfood in it and then I ate a pear about 30 minutes later. I have been eating brazil nuts like I can't get enough of them but I don't want to eat so many because I am still trying to get rid of a few more pounds. But I can't seem to do it. Also I made one of the pate's in the book so yummy so easy to make. But my favorite lately has been caesar salad. I get my dehydrator tomorrow and wanted to know if anyone had ideas on how to make garlic croutons? I miss those in there.
12-02-2004, 12:24 PM
I'm having Alissa's Almost Tuna wrapped in kale leaves!
12-02-2004, 01:22 PM
I just had a smoothy w/fresh kale (juiced) from my mom's garden, bananas, oranges, and blueberries! Yum! Then I took a walk, came home took a shower and feelin' groovy!!

I'm eating a very ripe persimmon. I waited and waited and waited until it felt like a water balloon, as Dr. Doug Graham sugguests, and now I have this bowl full of screaming orange super-sweet jelly.
12-02-2004, 01:50 PM
Mmm I'll second that I peeled a few really ripe persimmons and put it in a jar and it is just like jelly only ten times better. I ate it with almond butter on a banana and some essene bread for breakfast. Incredible! For lunch I ate durian and a bunch of other wild thai fruits and for dinner sushi.

These taste a lot like what you are talking about. I just copied it from my word doc and there are no measurements but it'll give you an idea:
For the sesame honey crackers I used soaked flax (it was this huge mass after it was soaked because I didn¬ít use enough water, but I leave them whole), and I add a handful of sesame seeds, a few drops of sesame oil, honey and agave nectar for sweetness, a few shavings of nutmeg and some sea salt. I stir this all together in a bowl, adding additional honey or agave nectar to make it move more. I spread it thickly on the sheets and then seasoned them lightly with sea salt (after I transition I hope to phase out the salt). These can¬ít be scored. Through my interest in cooking, I have learned that a little bit of salt tends to make the sweetness taste better.
When they are dry enough, but still flexible, you can cut them into shapes with a kitchen shears. This is the easiest way to do it. I like to do baby triangles. Just cut diagonally then keep cutting the triangles in half over and over until you get little baby ones, or the size you like. At this point, you can put the triangles back in the dehydrator to dry out a little longer or eat chewy as is.

oh cool, thank you!!! sounds yummy. I will never give up the salt - NEVER (I know, nver say never, but I agree salt does enhance everything including sweetness. I do use the celtic sea salt (a pinch is all is needed). I am going to start making "shaped" crackers and so forth with cookie cutters for my son (idea I had after cooking for my son thread). Thanks again for the idea, think I have everything I need to get started.
12-02-2004, 04:00 PM
I am drinking a pineapple, mango, blueberry, wheatgrass smoothie!!
12-02-2004, 06:59 PM
I'm eating a glazed donut and drinking a bottle of ripple. Just making sure you are paying attention.
At the moment it's romaine lettuce wraps of avacado and sprouts washed down with some Cotes Du Rhone. I know wine is not raw (as some see it) but I do drink and savor each drop.
I'm 99% raw except for the vino.
12-03-2004, 05:24 AM
I'vebeen on a major orange binge i just can't get enough:) Also blueberries are finally starting to comedown in price so i hada punnett of those just before...yum i love summer fruits
12-03-2004, 05:49 AM
Were we separated at birth?!...same warped sense of humor, pass the ripple! I also am a oenophile ;) however I've taken a break for now because it pulls me so much towards my other former food groups, bread, cheese and chocolate. Have you seen Sideways yet? Fun movie. Nice to see people pouring and drinking even if I'm not. Hey, idea light bulb: You should create a wine-pairing guide for raw food: i.e. Avocado = fume blanc
or Marinated Portobellos=pinot noir Ten years in publishing marketing and this is what I got out of it...constant flow of wacky book ideas!

People who give up salt say that they can really taste the natural sodium in the food. As long as I keep doing recipes I'll probably keep using it, but one day, with a simpler diet, I hope to say good bye to it.
12-03-2004, 10:18 AM
I think as my taste buds are changing I keep wanting less salt and I was eating a tomatoe the other day with some avocado and it reminded me of something salty for some reason. I tried a couple new fruits one was an amarillo sapote that seriously had the texture of a baked yam but tasted like pumpkin pie! So yummy! I also had this other fruit that looked like a potatoe on the outside but on the inside tasted just like peach pie. I wish I knew the name of it!
12-03-2004, 10:19 AM
Analeah - You should start posting pictures of all your crazy fruits for the rest of us to see!
12-03-2004, 10:32 AM
I should have darnit! I thought about it but then I figured people wouldn't want to see pictures of random fruit lol so I didn't take any. Too bad almost everything is gone now! I just ate an entire durian, like literally almost the entire thing. It was a wild variety from Bali and much smaller in size than the ones from Thailand but was very good. I even ate the seeds! I peeled the outer layer of skin off and they looked like they were starting to sprout and so full of life. It tasted in between a water chestnut and a green almond.....sooo good. I wonder if seeds from other types of durian are edible? I have never tried before!
12-03-2004, 03:28 PM
Organic Fuji apples from Whole Foods. I'm in Kansas City for a couple days and I'm LIVING at the whole foods salad bar. A few edamame keep jumping into my salad though...those little devils!
It's kind of funny huh? When a couple edamame a day are junk food.
12-03-2004, 03:32 PM
:D MB made me laugh!
12-03-2004, 03:37 PM
Mmmm I used to love edamame! I even made some camping once! I wonder what a raw equivelent would be?
12-03-2004, 03:58 PM
I am eating Alissa's "Creamy Pea Soup" in about an hour from now I will have one apple with cashewbutter. Yummy!
12-04-2004, 08:36 PM
A blender drink of young coconut water with frozen rasperries.
12-04-2004, 09:05 PM
Eating mandarins like crazy and just got the last organic valencia case for the season--now it will be navels.
12-04-2004, 09:08 PM
Oh and Ksabe98,
I too have been eating brazil nuts like crazy! What is up with that?? I just asked about croutons too and someone mentioned allissas cheese recipe sprinkled on it or some flax crackers--haven't tried it though as i just tried her ceaser salad and loved it! Have my banana crepes in the dehydrator right now to try her crepe recipe. Hope i can leave those in there after they are done at midnight...anybody know??

Me too former NYer now transplated to CO where the air is better and constantly looking behind me to see who is following me is "history." I lived in Kew Gardens, home of Danny's Pizza or maybe pizzeria. I just looked for it and may be history now! I have no one to ask either.
I enjoy wriitng and creating article titles. It amazes me sometimes what I put on paper, but have been published 2x re health. Not any famous publications that would ring a bell to you. I love the marketing aspect and would love to get into this environment or even event coordination/planning.
12-05-2004, 05:30 AM
I'm a Brooklyn girl, Park Slope. My whole family lived on the Upper West Side, where I was born. It's much less stressful living here but I crave NY like mad sometimes. I always say NY is a different country and that I've moved to America. That identity is really strong for me. (and yes, I still lock my car in my driveway!) We do get back and visit...next time, I'm heading to that new restaurant Pure Food and Wine. That's great about your two published health articles and your interest in health writing/marketing. You can make it happen! I'd be happy to look over your writing if you need a reader (I edited health books for ten years) Peace, M.
12-05-2004, 12:14 PM
BIG juicey navel oranges, I have been on valencia but they are gone, this is sooo sweet and yummy. think i'll have another (gotta clean my keyboard didnt know it was gonna be this messy)
12-06-2004, 10:29 AM
I am thinking these brazil nuts are yummy - kinda like coconut, or is that just me wanting a coconut? anyway yummy!
