Ok I'm back

So back in Feb I discovered raw totally on accident and thanks primarily to this website I went from eating meat and everything to being about 80% raw vegan in a matter of a couple weeks. It was all going well, bought a dehydrator and a juicer and I felt great and I kept it up for about two months. I lost about 5 pounds, but I needed to lose about 15 more. Then, in April I fell off the wagon and went back to eating a bunch of starches and meat again, blech, felt terrible. So I decided I had gone about it the wrong way so I went back to square one and went vegetarian first (not hard as I was vegetarian for years in the past). Stayed veggie for May and June, and since July I’ve been mostly vegan, maybe two non-vegan vegetarian meals a week, mostly if I end up eating out for lunch or something. So- now it’s november and I really want to try going mostly raw again. I think part of what discouraged me was that I would try all these delicious looking complicated recipes (I do like to cook/uncook) and then they would just NOT taste good and I would have wasted like two days soaking, sprouting, dehydrating et cetera, plus all the food. So this time I want to keep it more simple. But I really like variety. So, any suggestions for my second try would be helpful, as in what recipes should I be looking for to keep things relatively simple but varied at the same time. Also- I’ve been experimenting with juice fasting, but can’t seem to get past 3 days.

    Well as far as simple goes I’m all into it. I usually just have mono fruit meals during the day or I day fast and in the evening I have salads like cabbage salad with a raw dressing and namo shoyu or a spinach salad with a honey mustard dressing(raw of course and homemade) then later I’ll have a bowl of berries or something like that with raw honey on top.

    Very simple and not really many recipes but if you make interesting dressings it can be very fun!

    My new staple is now banana pancakes. Pure simplicity; puree bananas and dehydrate in pancake shapes for twelve hours and bite into that soft bread. I love spreading jam on it too. I am eating just that with lots of oranges and I am not bothering with soaking all those nuts and seeds. I just like my fruit diet. It’s simple but you can make such good things.
