I really want to try the eggplant bacon. Looks good with the blt. Also the corn chowder and avo skins.... OMG they look great. It's wonderful to have a picture along with the wonderful food. You are inspiring to make more of these recipes myself.

Thanks BlackKat!!! :)
Here are some from today:
Sweet Potato-Grapefruit Soup (RFFE, page 326):
Hummm...well, it had to grow on me. The first bite I was worried because the combination sounds "interesting...." But, after that I LOVED it!!!! The more I ate it, the more I loved it!!! I especially love the Basil in it!
My kids didn't care much for it until I told them that they could suck it down with a straw like a Sweet Potato-Grapefruit Soup SMOOTHIE!!!!! LOL!!!!! Then, they LOVED it!!! LOL!!!!
I also made Alissa's Sausage Patties (RFFE, pg 208) because I want to make the Sausage & Onion Pizza tomorrow...
I made some like links and some like patties:
Oh, my GOOOOODNESS!!!!!!!!! I couldn't stop licking the BOWL!!!!
SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's THAT good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't WAIT till these are firm!!!!
Loving this thread!!!! I also had the Sweet Potato Soup last night... YUM!!!! I needed salt added but OMG so good. I ended up putting some sprouted quinoa in it because I wanted something more filling. VERY nice. Will make it again for sure. Tasted like Thai food. I also made the BLT today....... To die for, so good. I get to have them in my lunch 2 days this week :) Going to try the Butternut Ravioli this week.

No, no, no!!!! To "LIVE" for!!!
Kept it pretty simple today:
Dehydrated "nibbles" (sausage from above)
Same recipe as LOLF...still yummy... I made the Pomodoro Sauce on the side. Not a hit with the kids, but I loved it! Hubby came home w/SAD food! !!!! Oh well! He says he'll join me again tomorrow...hopefully!!!

Renee you are so awesome for letting us follow you thru this journey. I need to venture out to other recipes so I think I will study this thread and others like it.
Do you have a way to put together meal plans from Alissas book? I seem to just look thru the book and then move back to the same ole routine. I need some motivation or maybe just a few less projects!
Thank you! Hummm...good Question!

I love looking at the photo thread! That gives me ideas sometimes, or I just cruise through Alissa's book and see what my taste buds scream for! For me, I absolutely *HAVE* to make things the night before or the morning of. If I wait, I may not have the things I need for what I want to make.
Living on Live Food had a 30 day plan...Raw Food for Everyone does not. So, you have to be creative and come up with a meal plan. But, I think that's what Alissa is trying to tell us. I love trying new recipes, but I wish I had the ingredients for everything in the book!!! Sometimes I look at what I've got and make my menu based on what I see in the frig!
Thanks for asking!!! :)
You are SOOO RAWKIN' it!!!!! You GO Gurl!!!! Look at YOU!!!!! I'm SO proud!!!!!
Today I have to work, so it's been leftover nibbles for me! I totally LOVE the Sausage!!! I dehydrated them a really long time, though cuz I wanted to get that crispiness that Alissa said it should have. I wrapped them in Lettuce and had some on w flax cracker....SOOO GOOD!!! I still wanna make the Sausage & Onion pizza when I get home from my trip, so I had to stop myself from eating them!!!!
I absolutely LOVE the Enchaladas even more today! I warmed them in the Big "D" for an hour and they were wonderful!!! I also had Alissa's Corn Chips today:
They were good, but honestly I like the more simple ones from LOLF!!! But, these are good, though...

Thanks for the pictures I looked at the book when I was at the border, but simply can not afford to buy now .These images can change if you ask me!
I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you mean here... Are you saying that these dishes look different every time they're posted? Cuz I totally don't agree, if that's what you mean...

I made the Butternut Squash Ravioli!! They were very good. A lot of work though and very rich. I had left over squash mix so am freezing for next time. I accidentally overdid the salt, so I wasn't able to eat too much but I will try them again. The main part I am not in love with is the crunchiness of the Ravioli part... anybody try Ravioli with something less crunchy then turnips and had success? I am even thinking papaya would be amazing with this with all the warm spices and curry. I did use a mandolin too.
I have the pickled pink onions in the fridge and the sweet pickles asparagus pickling too for the Arugula-Grapefruit salad. I also have a papaya on hand for the Papardelle. Looking forward to uncooking this weekend. I am sorry for no pictures but I will work on it. :)
