Here's the place to share recipes and meal plans for our February 15th raw food excursion :)

The recipes I post will serve 1 person for the 2 days, meaning less food prep!

Here are juice combinations that are both cleansing and nourishing :)

• cucumber, celery, carrot, parsley
• beet, carrot, celery, ginger, lemon
• watermelon, lemon, ginger
• pineapple, cucumber
• pineapple, beet, apple
• cucumber, apple, daikon
• cucumber, lime, cilantro, ginger
• celery, cucumber, green apple, parsley, kale, ginger
• wheatgrass juice and fresh young coconut water

Remember that if you juice it yourself or buy it from a fresh juice bar, it will be raw. Otherwise it will be pasteurized and not truly raw.

So, with fruits, veggies, seeds, nuts, smoothies and salads added in, these recipes are more than enough for a 2 day raw plan that has adequate calories and a variety of needed nutrients.

Anyone else who has 100% raw recipes (no miso, Braggs, nutritional yeast etc.) please feel free to share!

Dulse flakes are seaweed. You can use kelp or another finely flaked/sliced seaweed :)

Swiss chard is a green, much like kale but not as fiberous; use kale or spinach if you can't find chard ;)

Chiffonade means "very thinly sliced into ribbons" :)

Cilantro is fresh corriander. You can use parsley if you like but the flavor won't be the same (you can use any fresh herb, really, depending on what you like) :D

Agave nectar is a rich, sweet syrup that is available raw and is made from cactus ;)

Found this on the net while looking up raw recipes, sounds pretty good and easy to do also and very nutritious

Brown Rice In Curry Sauce

1/2 cup of brown rice (must be brown)
1 tbsp. curry powder
1 lb. carrots
1/2 small beet
1 stalk celery
Chinese spinach (when juiced thickens sauce- could use soaked flax seeds
instead)
1 clove garlic grated
1/2 small onion chopped finely
olive oil
mung bean greens
Soak brown rice in plenty water for 12 hours. Drain. Mix in chopped bean greens and place in serving dish. In a glass place onion,garlic and any other desired seasoning greens. Just cover these with olive oil and let soak. In another glass mix curry powder with enough olive oil to make into a paste. Juice beet, carrots and celery and chinese spinach. Add curry paste to juice and mix well. Pour curry sauce into serving sauce bowl.

I like the pineapple/cucumber combination. Mostly because those are the only ones available in my cafeteria.


(I'll be doing salads and fruit smoothies for my raw days. And if I can find any raw nuts in the school store...)

That sounds yummy! Please post a link to where you found it :)

Here's what I would do with similar ingredients: I would make it with 1/2 the amount of carrots and shred them, substitute flax oil for the olive and omit the brown rice and use 1/2 a cup mung bean sprouts and 1/2 a cup quinoa sprouts instead so it would be just 2 servings (my size servings which is probably 4 servings for others ), I would press the garlic clove and add 1 T. tahini, 1/2 a lime, juiced and puree 1 young coconut and add it to the mix...oh, and I wouldn't juice those other veggies, I would shred, mince and spiral slice them and add them to the whole mix of curry, onion, oil etc.
