i too want to join the choc. brownie party!
Breaky: sprouted buckwheat whipped up with a banana, pecans...kinda like eating raw pancake mix, meh...
Snacked on sunflower seeds, soaked raisins, tea
Dinner: giant salad (need to go shopping so it was a random mix, but worked well). Used some of the leftover cashew-cheese from kale chips I was making on the salad. Num!
Dessert: had some avocados getting squishy so made a cocoa-avo puddin'. Only had a couple scoops so far.
Snack: cashew-cheese kale chips!

left over? How does that happen? I never get left over cheese; a much lamented fact! I will have to make it specially just for cheese purposes.

Some recipes suggest putting the dehydrator temp. up for the first hour, then lowering back under 115 for the remainder. curious if this is how you use your L'equip, Mystic? Seems to always be a recipe utilizing an Excalibur that talks about this.

Yes, I start it off higher for the first hour. Then I do it lower for the second hour then I put it down to 114 until pretty much dry then 105 until I want to take them out.
I've been off line for a few days as am traveling, but I'm super proud b/c I've stayed 100% raw this entire time!! Including my sister's baby shower today. I don't remember everything I've had the past few days, but as I am in the SF Bay Area instead of my usual rural MD location I've had SUCH an easy time. Makes me contemplate moving back, lol. Yesterday was especially cool b/c I got to eat at Cafe Gratitude in Santa Cruz. I bought a slice of raw hazelnut pie there and brought it to the shower today to enjoy while everyone else ate the regular cake.
Breakfast: Pineapple Coconut smoothie (pineapple, matcha, vega fusion, coconut butter, spinach)
Snack: Small fruit bowl
Lunch: Mixed green salad (mixed greens, avocado, green onions, tomatoes, cilantro, olive oil)
Snack: Raw hazelnut pie from Cafe Gratitude (yum!)
Dinner: Kale chips, small salad (spinach, cauliflower, carrots, cabbage, olive oil, cumin), kombucha
Snack: Two raw coco-cacao macaroons (so yummy)
I loved going back and reading the posts I missed - I am looking forward to getting back home as my husband told me today he started going raw (!!!!!!) this morning. Shocker! It will be amazing for us to do this together. =)
PS - Bringing my Personal Blender on this trip was the best thing as I've been able to do smoothies every morning. Definitely worth packing it and dragging it 3000 miles. =)
@reeneh thank you and love the pics. me and my son want to try making the apple crapes looks so good.
I have been sick the last 2 days so not much eating going on here. Hoping this detox is both physical and emotional as i tend to hold in too much emotional stress.
4 capsules of fenugreek
tbl coconut oil
prosperity to you all in your raw journeys!!!
Thx PersianDelicacy!!!! You'll both LOVE the Crepes!!! Make the Sauce too... Fruit with a little Agave blended.
I'm excited about the Chocolate Brownie party!!!! The Rawtarian has a great recipe I'd like to try:
I usually use Walnuts, so I'd like to try this one that uses Pecans. Let's decide when we're gonna make it and what time. I'm on central time zone and a good day for me is a Monday or Tuesday, but I've got a Level 1 Class tomorrow that I'm teaching....,
Oooohhhh!!!!! You know what!!!!!! I've got a fantastic idea!!!!! I could set up a Learn it Live Class and we can all meet online and do it together!!!!!!!!!! ooohhhhh!!!!!! That sounds like SOOOOO much fun!!!!!! Lets do it!!!! I'll set the Class up right now and be back with the link!!!!
Ok, the Class is all set up!!!!
You're need to register with Learn it Live to register for the Class. The Class is FREE and should be TONS OF FUN!!!!!!!! I hope that YOU can make it!
I set it up for TUESDAY, January 29, 2013 at 1:00pm central time. There will be a recording available, if you can't make it to the class. I hope you will, though!!!!
I'll copy this to a new thread so that more people will see it...
