Raw foodism is such a great way to eat! I have dabbled on and off and always feel better when I eat raw. Love sprouting beans and nuts. Definitely beneficial to have a dehydrator and blender if you want to eat RV long term.

I'm sure it's a daunting task for omnivores to go right in to RV, but I was already vegan so it wasn't a big change.

CYPRZZ, check out this video in regards to eating out at restaurants: www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCuoGpokPds

I 'discovered' Tonya Kay a few days ago and I am inspired! So I am going to go as raw as possible. WooHoo!

Recipe of the day:

Love the Chicks Pate
(a favorite for breakfast or lunch, for me)
1 cup almonds, dry
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, dry
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon tumeric
1/2 cup filtered water

Break down the nuts in a food processor, add remaining ingredients and pulse together

Spanish Scramble
(a favorite version of the above dish, of mine)
1/4 cup cilantro
1/2 cup tomato, diced
2 Tablespoons scallions, chopped
1 batch Love the Chicks Pate
1/2 cup spinach leaves
pinch black pepper
fold ingredients into the Pate

The idea is that you make the Pate, and add different groups of ingredients to make it a different version.

Ani Phyo has a video that shows the construction of this dish

I have to admit, I don't get what you all mean by 'cooking' doesn't raw mean its NOT cooked? What recipes? I love my fruit and vegetables raw. I don't cook. My stove is covered for more counter space. I don't have oil, etc. in my place. I am curious to know what you mean, donuts holes???

I agree, her Donut Holes are to die for!

I just got her complete dessert book. I can't wait to make a cheesecake. I had a piece at Cafe Bliss (in dallas), it was so incredibly scrumptious!

Interesting.

Actually it takes me 10 minutes at most to make each meal.

When I described it being hard to explain to others, your description of 'short of just gnawing on raw fruit and veggies, and eating more salads' is the exact reaction. It is so not the case.

My meals are every bit as intricate as any cooked meal, yet much easier.

TRAVELNISTA,

Can you tell a difference having gone from traditional to RAW, then back?

CYPRZZ,

I have begun my journey into Raw Foodism and so far, am loving it! I love Nomi Shannon, (the Raw Gourmet) and have been diligently learning and trying to get there. Because of 'life' and work, I haven't gotten there 100%..........BUT, I will say this. When I do not eat RAW, I can definately tell the difference!

I look forward to sharing recipes and learning from you and others. THanks!!

I'm a vegan, and I do some raw food, but I'm not a raw food vegan. It seems to me that if I were to go totally raw food I would have to spend a lot more time in food preparation (which is kind of ironic really). So short of just gnawing on raw fruit and veggies, and eating more salads, I just can't see me doing it.

I'm sure it's great, and it's healthy and beneficial all around, though. And if I were rich enough to hire a "cook," then that's what they'd "cook" for me!

Inner monolouge: RV is a daunting thing to some. It makes no sense to many I describe it to.

I'm in love with it!

I'm always disappointed when I can't make or order something while I'm out. There is only one restaurant that serves all RV where I live, so my options are limited.

The taste is amazing, the cost is acceptable, the benefits unmeasurable!

-- What do you think about it?
