Today has been a tremendously busy day for me!!! So far today we've had: Alissa's Buckwheaties Cerael w/Fresh Fruit (gotta do photos tomorrow...), Freshly squeezed Grapefruit Juice, for Lunch I attempted to make Alissa's Thai Lettuce Wraps, but I couldn't make the sauce, so we just ate um with Nama Shoyu... I'll have to make um again when I have more time to make the sauce... I still have some Kelp Noodles, so I'll prob be able to make them Monday cuz I have to work tonight. My daughter said the Noodles are "growing" on her...she didn't like them when she 1st tried them...
I still have leftovers from the Roll yesterday, so that'll be dinner today...
Ohhh good! Happy to know that there is a good sounding recipe for those kelp noodles. I don't quite care for them much but they would probably be good in the wraps.
I soak the noodles in warm water for a good hour or so with some lemon juice...it helps to make them softer
Can't wait to see your pics....woooo hooo!!
some photos of Day 3
Hi everyone! I did not start on Nov 1st like I had planned, because I had quite a bit going on here at home. Needless to say, despite some craziness, I managed to REGISTER for the DEC certification with ALISSA! WOOOHOO - I am beyond stoked!! So this is a 30 day challenge that will continue through the raw chef training. Going to look for flights and such tomorrow and check in with hubby's schedule to make sure baby is covered! I am not letting my controlling mommy tendencies take over here! I was kinda tired today -- i think I am detoxing a bit already.
I made the avocado skins, greek pizza, guacamole, and quick cheeze -- hubby really likes the avocado skins - he's eating them right now, suprisingly.
green smoothie - 1banana, 1 apple, 1 orange, 7 collard leaves, nutmilk and OJ
eggplant bacon -- kinda scrawny and chewy - i didnt know how to slice them thin enough, plus my dehydrator is 4 trays, so im not sure if that affects the "cooking" time -- any tips are welcome!
my proudest moment today -- the greek pizza! its coming out of the D-HI now.. used the Easy Crust from LOLF http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/...s/CIMG4675.jpg
looking forward to dinner -- i did a different method to upload pics - hope this makes them bigger?
I am planning to make better eggplant bacon tomorrow.. meanwhile, I hope to do the marinated greens and the curried butternut noodles tomorrow, along with either the bistro burgers or the carrot pecan burgers..
You GO Gurl!!!! Your food looks FABULOUS!!!!! :D I was JUST looking at the Avacado skins!!! You beat me to it!!!!! :D
Yea, for the Bacon, try going thinner....use a Veggie Peeler. It'll be more "bacon-like"... That's how they did it at Grezzo. Also, try different Eggplants! See photo on page 1 of this thread... Also, if they are chewy, you should dehydrate longer. You want um chrispy...
The Carrot Pecan Burgers are amazing!!!! But, you GOTTA do the Calzone from LOLF!!!! Trust me!!!
You'll LOVE the Class!!!! Take lots of photos and hug Alissa & Janet for me....again!!! :)
That pizza looks DELICIOUS!!!
Oh, my goodness. That pizza looks amazing! Good job! :)
OMG...that pizza is to LIVE for! I want some right NOW!
I appreciate the tips ReneeH: I had a regular eggplant and a really small rusty looking veggie peeler - the eggplants you have in the earlier photo are CHinese eggplants -- i found them at the Asian grocer really cheap, but I will see if i can find them organic at my co-op.. along with a good veggie peeler
I LOVE the carrot burgers - I made them about a year ago with a raw buddy and i made almond butter sauce on top.. but hubby doesnt care for them so i will make a set of the carrot burgers and a set of bistro burgers. The pizza was awesome -- i really like tomato sauce on my pizza though, so the next Greek pizza will have a marinara layer over the cheese.
THanks everyone - more pics to come later :)
What a gr8 idea!!!!! I'll try that! Thx!!!!

off to take a nap and try my hand at the previously mentioned recipes.
Thanks Shona, GreenT and Amarynth for the pizza compliments! I have always shy-ed (sp?) away from the pizzas and calzone because I was afraid of putting in all that effort and not having it taste good. Now I know that it is really much simpler that what I imagined.
i am so excited to share more food and pics with you guys! have a great day!
I purchased Alissa's book today. The only thing I've had time to make is Coconut Milk for my smoothie tomorrow morning.
Thanks for sharing the photos and about seeing Alissa. This has been so inspiring for me. I'm new by about 3 months to raw! Need all the encouragement I can get.
Ever since I saw the avacado skins in lolf,I been wanting to make those,they look soooo good.
That greek pizza you made looks like the real deal,my dehydrator can make a few things good and the rest it messes up,that pizza pic makes me want a good dehydrator bad lol
Here's the Buckwheat Cerael from yesterday! It was ok...I wish the Buckwheat had more flavor, though... I chopped some Bananas, strawberries, Raisins, and Almond Milk. I did sprinkle some Cinnamon on it, though. My Buckwheat didn't Sprout that much, though. Alissa said it may have been sittin' in the store a while. I dud get a tiny tail, though...
Here is my attempt at the Lettuce Wrap. I will remake it next week with the Sauce.... I have some Onion Bread on the side with some Almond Balls...
You're welcome! I'm so glad you like the thread! Three months Raw is great!!!! Congratulations!!!!
