I have some questions. I met someone on another site who's feeling great and lost a bunch of weight on whole living and raw foods. I've found that the more I crank on freggies, the better I eat. But I have some questions. I'd love to eat more and more this way.
1. How do you eat this way w/o a Vitamix or such? I'm living in 2 places, really. Even if I had a Vitamix in 1 place, I wouldn't always have it. So, how do you eat that way low-budget?
1.a. What's the most basic, lowest budget blender/juicer that will work?
1.b. What's the most basic, lowest budget food dehydrator that will work?
2. I'm a care-giver and I'm spending a lot of time where I only have a blender, toaster and microwave. So I have limited cooking equipment and time.
3. I do best eating really low-fat. Most living and raw foods recipes I see are high fat. The raw food snack bars they have at Costco are also high fat, so I haven't ventured there, yet.
I can even do great rice in the microwave, honest. Tonight I had my steel cut oats, home-dried prunes and organic raisins, soaked all day then microwaved and topped with a little flax oil. Also, the care-givee is very smell-sensitive, so I can't steam or cook mushrooms, artichokes and many other foods.
Thanks so much for the help and counsel!
