Welcome To Making Raw Fun!
Here's your short and easy to read ezine full of raw food fun! Compliments of Raw Food Weight Loss Guide!
What A Great Idea
A great way to make raw veggies taste and feel more liked the cooked veggies you may have been used to is to marinate them. A little olive oil, a little Bragg’s, perhaps some sea salt or some herbs is about all you need to give them a little flavor and let them soften up. But here’s the best part: instead of marinating them in a bowl, put the veggies and the marinade in a well-sealed plastic bag and that way all of the vegetables will be in contact with the marinade and soften up evenly.
Fun In The Kitchen
Just about every raw food recipe book has at least one recipe for a pate, if not a good handful of them. But what do you do with pate besides dip carrot and celery sticks in it? Well, you can use
it in a wrap with other veggies. You can give it an Asian flavor and use it to make Nori rolls. You can make an herbed spinach pate and stuff a pepper or tomato with it. You can put it on flax crackers. Or you can top a raw “bread” with pate, lettuce and tomato to create a sandwich. If you add a little water to your pate you can even use it as a creamy salad dressing. Get creative with your pate and try new ideas!
This Recipe Rawks
Growing up with chemical-laced, sugar-laden pudding from a box, it wouldn’t have occurred to me in a million years that you could make it with an avocado. But I gotta tell you, it makes the creamiest, healthiest pudding you’ve ever had. This is totally a raw food basic, but if you haven’t tried it yet, it is about time you did! I bet you’ll love it!
1 ripe avocado, peeled and seeded
1 Tablespoon raw cacao powder
1 Tablespoon coconut oil
½ to 1 cup almond
milk, to desired thickness
Healthy sweetener of choice to taste
Blend until creamy and yummy! Smile, it’s actually good for you!
Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you have to give up on your raw food diet. Didja know you can actually eat your raw food nice and warm? Yes! As long as the temperature doesn’t reach over 118 degrees, it is still a raw, living food and maintains its nutritional content and enzymes. So go ahead and make a raw soup and heat it up just a bit on the stove. Or warm up your zucchini spaghetti marinara. Or put your raw food burgers in the dehydrator for 15 minutes before eating. Or just add warming spices to your food, such as cayenne pepper, ginger or cinnamon. You can stay warm, and stay raw, too!
