View Full Version : "Processed" raw foods
I am surprised by all the processed/semi-processed foods out there for people eating raw! I can tell that not all of these products are going to work for me,but I'm curious enough to try things at least once. What baggged, jarred and boxed products have you all been eating, and what you think of them? I have tried:
-black sesame tahini (an acquired taste- very pretty but intense and bitter)
-flaxseed crackers-(Mauk brand)- They are flavored and have salt. I like 'em.
-Food 4 Life's 7-sprouted grain bread- a bit dry and bland.
-Raw sharp cheddar cheese- Good stuff. Maybe too good!
-dried Goji berries - At first they tasted both bitter and sweet at the same time, but now they seem sweet. I treat them like raisins.
I'm up for new experiences so I'd love to hear yours.

ohh my HFS just got a whole bunch of raw packaged goodies :)
I tried the Gopal raw brownie. Pretty good, I could make it myself. Strong enough sweetness wise that I ate it in 2 halfs.
Gopal pinapple flax cookie. yuck! it's basically golden flax seed and pineapple, there is something about the pineapple that I think enhances the linseed taste of the flax seed. It was like chewing on a paint brush.
several lara bars. the chocolate coconut was tastey. haven't tried the cashew one yet, it's in my glove compartment for emergencies.
Go live (i think that's the name) has a raw bar, cherry crunch is super tastey with chunks of dried cherries. Yumm.
They also make their own all raw trail mix, bulk raw nuts & sun dried fruits, local raw honey and probibly more that I'll find next time I go exploring.

I make most everything. My HFS has limited raw foods...and since I am really picky about spices and types of dried fruits used in various raw products so I just make my own. I do all my own sprouting and dehydrating, this takes time but I rarely cook with recipes so I save time there.

After reading these logs I decided to drive down to Tallahassee this weekend (1.5 hour drive) to the co-op there and see what stuff they have.
I work so much and have a baby and a hubby who works all of the time, too, so making things like crackers would be a real burden I think. That is part of the reason I LOVE the RAW lifestyle--at most, I pretty much just cut veggies up. Since my husband has been gone I have pretty much just done the grab and go deal, because my daughter is so clingy and cries if I don't cuddle her all evening.
Some RAW processed foods would be nice... :)
Thanks for the input! This gives me a few ideas for what to try in the future.
