That would be awesome - I like mushrooms as a base. The only ones I have that don't have flax have one or another variety of nut...

I've never had that happen, but then again I usually buy pre-dehydrated coconut (it's hard to come by fresh where I live) so I've only ever done it myself a couple of times.

Mystic and Queenbee Thankyou for taking an interest. yesterday the bitterness that I was picking up seemed to disappear
I made up 2 leafy green salads with cashew nut dressing, dried mango, cherry tomatoes and red capsicum, topped with the 2 different burgers topped with raw ketchup and mayo.
My marketing guy loved the bugers and said they tasted like meat, that was the sage,mushroom and walnut burgers. These burgers called for portobello mushrooms but I could only find fresh straw mushrooms in the market. I have bought 3 different dried mushrooms including porcini.
Any thoughts Mystic on the types of mushrooms to use?
I am not sure how to tell if my flaz seed is rancid or not.
yesterday I made strawberry cheesecake and 2 small apple pies.
On my raw dessert menu I now have
Choc/orange mousse tart
key Lime Pie
Chocolate Ice cream
mango ice cream
Papaya ice cream
Banana and coconut ice cream
just have to get stuff prepared for the quiche and mushroom spinach tarts.
I watch a guy on YouTube that gave a convincing argument for reducing my fats and increasing my carbohydrates in the form of fruit.
Feeling really good. The coffee obsession is receding but still want one. My one remaining lady that started with me is fantastic. I am so proud of her.
She is a wonderful lady been here in Vietnam for many years started an NGO helping mentally and physically disabled kids who would otherwise be left to just rot in the corner. She is also a big animal lover and has rescued dogs from the cooking pot, tied up to the point of madness.
I often deliver her juices to her centre and am very impressed with what she has achieved
Mystic you are from the UK so is this woman, I wanted to bring attention to her work here. I it is a great human interest story.
What would be a good place to approach. I suppose the BBC world service could be one, maybe Panorama
Sorry to digress from the food. I do tend to ramble
I use portabellas for mine. The BBC might be a bit straight-laced. Channel 4 might be better but I don't watch tv so I'm not the best person to ask. Maybe BBC radio 4. It would then get picked up by the tv people.
Today I had fruit (Clemintines & Bananas) and a raw Enchilada:
And Apple Cobbler:
SOOOOO....I'm pretty HAPPY right about now!!!!
Raw apple cobbler sound so great. I make a raw apple crisp, which I warm in the dehydrator. Yum.
B: Strawberry-walnut smoothie
S: Mango-cilantro smoothie
L: Curry cucumber soup
S: Handful raw nuts (as I was taking them out of the dehydrator)
D: Creamy broccoli soup
S: Leftover mango smoothie
Sorry to jump in at the end of the month. No not really happy to be here again.... Its nice we always get a warm welcome no matter how many times we come back.. I waited to post until I can fully commit to the 30 days. been aboutt 80% raw. Always sabotage myself with those few little bites. Ive gained some weight since last summer and hope to get it off.
I have been making lots of smoothies. My new fave is frozen bananna and raw cacao. That was my breakfast. Lunch big salads. Dinner big salads then dates for desert.
Favorite new recipe:
Mix in food processor, press then cut into bars.
These are so so good I have been eating them everyday. (Dr. Ben Kim recipe)
Hope everybody has a great day.
Thanks Mystic for the info. Renee, fabulous food. Hi Tracyraw.
Queenbee, I have started using a lot of strawberries with mint in my smoothies after reading your post.
Wheat grass shot
Banana coconut biscuits
Getting great feedback from the customers, not many a handful really but the reward I'd that they are enjoying the food.
Tired but happy
@ Tracey - Welcome back!
@ CaiHong - glad to hear that my strawberry addiction is doing some good. =) And so happy to hear things are going well with the restaurant.
B: Strawberry-Kiwi-Banana smoothie with Matcha and a few nuts
S: Cacao-Maca-Banana smoothie (So. Good.)
L: Mixed green salad with sprouts, peppers, tomatoes, radishes, and a tahini dressing
S: More cacao-maca-banana smoothie
D: Leftover creamy broccoli soup from yesterday
Hey y'all.... My kids are sick, and now I feel a something coming on!!!! Scratchy throat, nasal drip, dry eyes...what do you think? A cold???
Eating a LOT of fruit today....mostly citrus. I'm in bed and plan to stay here a while....
Drinking Lemon-Ginger Tea, feeling much better! I rested literally ALL day! Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be back among the living for sure! :)
Renee....glad you are feeling better!
@ Renee - my husband and one of my girls had this same thing. My husband starting consuming mad quantities of Vitamin C and it seemed to help. My daughter was hit harder - she slept until 11am yesterday. Unheard of!!!
Glad you're feeling better.
Is there going to be a March thread? March starts tomorrow.
