Wow! What  a fantastic list. I've got a sore throat and haven't been eating. (Don't remember the last time I had a sore throat.) At least DH is eating better. Poor guy. Has to eat what I put in front of him. I still can't seem to get used to drinking water. I still feel water logged when I do so I've reverted to making pitchers of tea again. I've got to get back on it.

I hope you're feeling better soon, Jinjeet.

Mare, that is a spectacular list. Thank you for sharing it. How could you eve get salad-boredom with all of those ideas!!??

Eating BEFORE shopping is such a good tip. I definitely pick up more crap when I'm hungry.


Weekends have been hard for me lately. I've been eating well during the week but then I have a drink or two on the weekend and end up ordering a basket of sweet potato fries from the bar. I think we need to slow down our social calendar for a bit.

That's a GREAT salad list!

I did really well with my goals this week - there is a reason I started small! BUT My work schedule was crazy and I ended up eating out for dinner almost every night, and actually gained 2 pounds this week! So sad! So, in addition to creating some exercise goals, I'm also going to add to my eating goals. So, my goals for next week are as such:

- Eat breakfast at home every day.
- Bring my lunch to work every day.
- Eat dinner at home at least 4 days a week.
- Don't weigh myself until next Sunday.
- Drink one bottle of water every day.
- Exercise goal: walk two miles a day with my dog.

Recipes - I'm going to try my hand at making a fritatta today! I have to pick up a little bit of regular milk because I've had bad luck with almond milk in them. I'm going to put broccoli, shallots, garlic, and a bit of parmesan!

Last week I made a salad with pinto beans, corn, cherry tomatoes, red bell peppers, roasted poblano peppers, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime! The first day I just ate it as is, but then I dumped some on a bed of spinach and topped it with avocado dressing. Yum!

Great goals Miss Whitney! That bean salad sounds really good too! I used to make a black bean cold salad like that but I kinda forgot about it, thanks for reminding me. Smiley Do you roast the poblano peppers yourself or buy them canned or something?

Lime--I hear ya on the weekends thing! During the week I've been pretty good, my main thing right now is eating every 3 hours or so, it's really helping me not eat junk or eat huge portions. Last night my boyfriend and I went to a party so instead of dinner I had lots of cheese, red wine, and a bit of crackers and bread. I still stayed within my calories for the day, but just barely, and I didn't eat a nutritious dinner or as many fruits and veggies as I would have liked (the bf didn't tell me that we were going anywhere until too late or I would have taken a veggie tray or something).

Mustgo soup for lunch and dinner (aka everything in the fridge Must Go, LOL).
Cabbage, onion, celery, sweet potato, cauliflower, potato, kidney beans, a bit of salt and some dried herbs and spices. I didn't use any oil.

Link to an ENORMOUS list of wrap fillings (raw vegan, incredibly tasty and super healthy)
http://www.rawfoodsupport.com/read.php?4,155835

And from the same site some salad ideas from a raw food gourmet class Wink

5 ingredient groups for creating salad dressings. Groups A, B, & C are the main ingredients. D & E are items added depending on mood or salad. Add water to most dressings to allow for the use of less oil and to thin out the nut butters and blend the seeds. Always add the acids (C) last because that will make the dressings thicker and creamier.

(A) Oils/Fats- Olive oil, Flax oil, Coconut oil, Nut butters, Tahini, Sesame seeds, Sunflower seeds, Pumpkins seeds, Pinenuts, Almonds, Cashews, Macadamia nuts, Avocado

(B ) Salts - Celtic Sea salt, Crystal salts, Nama Shoyu, Miso ,Sea vegetables

(C) Acids - Lemon, Lime, Orange, Grapefruit, Tomato, Sauerkraut, Apple Cider Vinegar

(D) Sweets - Dates, Figs, Dried Fruit, Honey, Orange, Berries, Papaya, Mangos

(E) Herbs & Spices - Garlic, Ginger, Onion, Chili, Peppers, Cayenne, Basil, Oregano, Thyme, Dill, Mint, Curry, Sun Dried tomatoes

These dressings are all made in a blender.
Here are some combinations that can be made but by all means make up your own and be sure to write down the amounts and ingredients as you make them.

Basic Tahini - Water, Tahini, Nama Shoyu, Lemon juice, Garlic (this was served on baby spinach and onion salad)

Spicy Thai - Olive oil, Almond butter, Nama shoyu, lime juice, honey, ginger, garlic and thai pepper (served on cabbage, bok choy, raisins, coconut and scallions).

Date dressing - Water, olive oil, miso, lemon juice, dates and garlic (served on a mixture of baby greens).

Creamy Italian - Water, macadamia nuts, celtic salt, apple cider vinegar, garlic, basil and oregano

Tropical Vinagrette - Flax oil, celtic salt, apple cider vinegar, mangos, papaya, mint and garlic

Sun Dried Dream - Cashews, celtic salt, grapefruit juice, apple cider vinegar and sun dried tomatoes

Ageless - Water, sesame seeds, miso, sauerkraut, garlic

Avo Dressing Avocado, celtic salt and lemon juice

Curry Cream - Tahini, celtic salt, orange juice, ginger and curry

Blend until creamy because they will stick to the greens better and you won't be left with that puddle of dressing in the bottom of the bowl when you are finished eating. If using nuts or seeds toss them in with the oil or water before adding any other ingredients to allow them to be blended with out any chunks in the dressing, you can also toss whole garlic cloves in with the oil or water and save yourself having to mince them.

Ooh! Ooh! Pick me!

I haven't tried these out yet, because our avocados aren't ready to harvest yet this year, but I checked on them today, and they're growing. It sounds soooo good, and way better for you than using all mayonnaise and mustard. I would probably try to sub in more avo and take out the mayo altogether.

Avocado Deviled Eggs: Makes 12 servings.

Ingredients:

6 hard boiled eggs
1 medium avocado, diced small
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
Salt to taste

Directions:

Cut boiled eggs in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out yolks. Mash yolks with a fork. Stir in diced avocados, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and salt to taste. Fill egg whites with yolk mixture and place on a serving plate. Sprinkle with cayenne or fresh, chopped parsley.

Raspberry mousse torte w chocolate fudge sauce (raw vegan). This recipe is completely healthy though high in natural oils and sugars. Eat on an otherwise frugal food day.

dates, chopped in food processor or by hand
almonds, crushed fairly fine but leave some chunks for texture as you like it
flax seeds, powdered
cashews, powdered
raspberries
maple syrup or agave or whatever you use for sweetener
cocoa powder
coconut oil/butter

use a spice mill to grind the nuts and flax right before you use them. you can crush the almonds in a food processor. if you do this step after you've chopped the dates in there is makes it easier to clean up for some reason.

i used a spring form pan, it's the easiest to get this torte out of. line it with a piece of parchment paper or waxed paper in the bottom.

CRUST
use roughly half and half dates and crushed almonds, just enough to cover the bottom of the pan in a thin layer (no more than 1/4". mix a small amount (TBSP or so) of flax powder with a bit of water to make a paste and add to dates and almonds. mix well with your hands and press into the bottom of the pan. set pan in the freezer while you prep the filling.

FILLING
i blended about 2 cups of raspberries to one cup of crushed cashews with a handful of flax powder mixed in and the liquid sweetner of your choice to taste. start the blender with just the berries and sweetner, then add the crushed nuts and seeds. keep blending until it's creamy looking and smooth, then pour into the pan, gently shaking and/or tapping the bottom of the pan on the counter to spread it out. set into the freezer for at least one hour.

TOPPING
i used about a 1/4 cup of maple syrup and half that amount of coconut oil.
gently heat the liquid sweetner and stir in as much cocoa powder as you like, the more you use the more intense the chocolatey flavour will be. stir until smooth then drizzle in some melted coconut oil and stir until blended well. pour over the mousse and set back into the freezer for a few hours.

OMG, try not to faint at the deliciousness when you eat it. no, really. Just don't get excited and take it out of the freezer before it's ready like I did, lol.




This is an incredible source for the most amazingly delicious raw vegan recipes. Raw and vegan generally mean very healthy and believe me when I tell you, this girl makes some tasty, tasty food!
