Newbie needs tips

Hi…I am trying to go 80% raw (roughly) and I was wondering what are some key ingredients that you would suggest I have on hand at all times?? Right now all I am able to do is fruits and smoothies as all I have for equipment is a good blender…not sure if that makes a difference…...any tips would be greatly appreciated!!!

    hi ,

    my staples :

    walnut (coarse ground on salads makes filling)
    flax , sesame seeds . grind up for salads or smoothies
    salad vegis
    olive oil and apple cider vinegar
    almonds (great for almond milk , ecspecially when start adding like carob powder etc)
    dry dates and figs
    though not raw green tea to fend off cooked food cravings
    limes and lemons

    cheers :)

    I think raw sunflower seeds are essential for salads, soak first-cover with plenty of water and let sit overnight-then drain-will keep in fridge for a few days, keep rinsing them tho.

    almomd milk-soak those suckers drain add water 1/3rd of blender fill with water.
    I like raw agave. It sure is sweet tho. parfaits with cashews coconut and fruits.
    braggs amino acids, not sure if it’s raw.
    or sea salt.
    pink grapefruits are very grounding for me.
    get a dehydrator and a food processor, like cuisinart.
    red bell peppers
    maybe some sprouted wild rice for salads would be good-soak overnight and keep rinsing throughout day or day or two
    like the man said-AVOCADOS AND OLIVES-REAL OLIVES great with oranges-ohyeah
    cucumber I find sweet vidalia onions in my salad greatly grounding when soaked in some app cid vinegr and oliveoil.
    apples the simple apple
    goji berries
    air and a water purifier
