i’ve been reading this site for a few months, especially the recipes, and it’s got me super excited. i don’t think going completely raw is a possibility for me right now, but i am interested in eating more raw, and doing a 7-10 day raw cleanse at the end of the month (when my partner, who is not very keen on raw, will be out of town). i have eaten raw for a day a week off and on, and love raw desserts more than cooked ones (my decision to go vegan was also based on finding i loved vegan desserts more than traditional ones).
i have been looking at the forums as far as transitioning, meal plans, etc, and i really want to succeed at pretty much 100% percent raw for said week. i think my biggest obstacle will be getting hungry for snack-type food that isn’t just a piece of fruit or a vegetable. i really enjoy preparing food and making meals, so at this stage a lot of monomeals doesn’t sound super appealing. however, i don’t want to end up getting discouraged by the amount of time involved in creating complicated or time-consuming recipes.
does anyone have any tips or links to ideas for flavorful snacks that i might be able to make in a quantity large enough and with a long enough life to last me for at least a few days at a time? i work at a natural foods co-op and live across the street from a raw restaurant, so access isn’t too much of an issue, though i would also like to make this affordable. also, i have a blender, food processor, mandoline, and just received a dehydrator in the mail (yipee!).
i apologize for the blabbering post… any tips greatly appreciated!
