All the recipes I own for raw food, mostly have nuts which raise the daily fat% above 20%. Well, even today...but it's just day 2 for me, I did fair. We had my birthday cake prematurely cause I'm going out of town for work for a couple of weeks and I'll be gone for my birthday. I'll be in New Jersey, 45 minutes from NYC.
If I need to, I'll go to NYC and get some fresh fruit. I'll have my personal mini blender with me in the hotel. I really think I'll be in the middle of nowhere.
But until I go on Sunday, it bugs me cause I've not got my fat % below 20%. I just want 6 days where my fat is 20%, and more fruit based. We're getting a hella snow, and it's on top of more snow. So I'm doing p90X off of Youtube, and I'll hit the gym when the snow stops. I wonder how this will work out of town, but I'll make it work...just like now, but it might be difficult to eat raw at dinners. But I can figure that out.
But the nuts in the recipes, how do you get around that? I have that to deal with until I leave. What do you use instead of nuts?
Eating mostly vegan (barring the cake today), I feel really good. I will continue this. I like it. Are there recipes I can get that are good for 80-10-10, without nuts?
I can do "zero" fat pizza, for the crust, dehydrate a mixture of yams, buckwheat sprout and herbs, and cover with
all sort of fruits and vegetable marinated in lemon juice.
why do you need recipes? just buy fruit and eat monomeals or combine fruits that works toghether
for dinner i go for a big salad and make a dressing with some fruit and mix for ex zucchini , tomatoes half avo green leafs , dressing a pound of mango a pound of dates with water quart of water mix and enjoy!
eat whats good on its own different for everyone. good luck!
ditch the recipes :) mono fruit and then big salad for dinner. easy :) and low fat
zucchini noodles with a tomato/capsicum blend (or lime juice)
blended frozen banana
frozen pineapple popsicle
Apple slice sandwiches, with dates/raisins in the middle
lettuce wraps of some kind..? I don't know what people put in those, but lettuce goes well with sweet as well.
Avo blend with veg strips to dip.
Hope these aren't too summery, what do you have available to you?
i'm in Kansas City, so everything is available....but I was trying to make no meatballs, they are nut based. The raw fallalel, they are great, and carrot based but with a nut butter sauce...They had too much onion in them. I'd make them again, no onion.
But I'd totally put fruit in things...I like to create in the kitchen. I'm taking a raw food cooking course, alot of things are nut based, or loaded up with flax....flax pancakes. Nut taco filling.....geez, can't you have carrot taco fillings? The cashew cheese, which I've made twice, before this....I love zucchini noodles and tomato sauce. No nuts there.
I wonder if no meat balls could be made with carrots instead. Lettuce wrap with carrots instead of nut based? I'll forget about desserts, I'm leaving in a few days....so I am cutting out the nuts.
I LIKE PREPARING RECIPES TOO. MEGANELIZABETH HAS A YOUTUBE CHANNEL THAT I LOVE WITH LOWFAT RECIPES. ENJOY.
Just forget recipes. They're not worth it.
If nuts are the problem, remove nuts from the recipe !
Even though I'm not high raw, when we started this lifestyle it was as much, if not more work to do, the regular-food-raw-lookalikes. Definitely easier to just eat mono meals and a huge salad for dinner. If you are eating enough (til you're soooo very full) then there is no craving for old-type meals. This is what happened to us. Used to make taco/nut meat and spread on a romaine lettuce leaf with olives...great for transitioning, but really, really way too high in fat. The best way to stay vegan is to eat the carb up, then use a few nuts in your salad or as part of your snack. Banana smoothies~!
Best wishes while you do this traveling!!
I just replaced 1 cup of ground carrots with a cup of nuts, added a ground banana with a date, added a ground celery, and wrapped it in spinach, with a but of nutritional yeast and cumin. I made a near fat free,raw burrito The bananas replace the refried beans quite well. I don't have a large collared green, and with our 26 inches of snow, there's no going out today to get any.
It's delicious. I should make a blog post on it.
