Your Top Ten Raw Foods
I have noticed that we seem to like the type of threads where we can see what we each have in common. Threads like 'what you ate today', 'where you live', 'how old are you' seem to be quite sticky. I thought it would be fun to start a 'top ten' list of foods that we all like!
Here is my top ten:
1. hemp milk
8. onion bread
10. Cucumber or tomatoes - a tie!
Yeah, good topic! Although so tricky trying to decide my top 10!
These are my current choices but it changes on a weekly basis.
1. Berries (Any kind - I love them all!)
3. Zoe's cheese with spring onions
5. Sun dried toms
6. Carrot crackers
9. Cinnamon buns
10. Sour cream & chive dip
ooh funn but difficultt..
3. goji berries
8. cacao nibs
7. pumpkin seeds
8. soaked but not sprouted buckwheat
10. all green smoothies!
2. Cantaloupe/Honey Dew
oooh I forgot tomatoes and cherimoya's.. Now that is tough to think what to edit out. Maybe mint, maybe pears......?
this is fun!!! i tend to eat the same foods a lot and looks like a lot of people like them, too. my list is in order of how obsessed i am. haha Junk food is last ; )
8. Raweos- any kind really- my favorite are luscious lemon swirls
9. Nori Wrapped Power Wraps
Oh God - how could I forget dates! That has to be my new number 1.
And grapes.....and pecans....can't believe they didnt make it on my list either! Top 10 is too difficult.
8. bell peppers
1. Kiwi gold
4. Green smoothie made of fresh squeezed orange and blood orange juice with greens
Ah yes lulushka8, Sharon Fruit has got to be up there! I love them.
I need to look up this sharon fruit stuff. Never had one!
Edit - Oh, persimmons!! I have had those. One wasn't ripe, though. They HAVE to be ripe!
superfood2, sharon fruits are persimmons. i've only had 1, but i like them. it just takes forever for them to ripen.
yes, make SURE your persimmons are ripe, or you may experience the REALLY unpleasant sensation of having all the moisture in your mouth suddenly disappearing.
concord grapes, coconut, pineapple, orange bell pepper, figs, raspberries, avocado, oranges, sprouts, banana...
5. raw zucchini hummus
6. green smoothie (apple, banana, kale)
Ill put my fav recipes off of GoneRaw here too, just cuz:
1. Fettuccine Alfredo with Peas and Red Peppers
2. Zucchini Hummus
3. Whole Carrot Tabboleh
4. Raweo's and Milk
5. Jamestheraw's Tuna Salad Sandwiches
6. Cauliflower Curry with Sweet Sauce
7. Thai Coleslaw
8. Chunky Chili with Eggplant and Mushrooms
9. Massaged Arugula Salad with Mango/Avo Dressing
10. Butterscotch Cookies
well, i don't have a sweet tooth, i only crave savory things, so for me becoming raw is very difficult since there aren't a lot of raw nuts that i can afford to eat on a regular basis... and i can't think of a lot of favorites... sunflower seeds are a nice staple food for me... i'm eating mostly to sustain my life with the occasional treat... paige4 has some things on there i've yet to try
i'm just going to start drinking blended greens instead of making salad i think...
4 tamarinds (though they are rarely good because the stupid grocery store overstocks them so they all dry out and go bad)
6&7 agave nectar with cocoa
* things i can rarely afford
For Rob and me, this is what we eat the most:
3. alfalfa sprouts
4. collards/kale, PARSLEY!!
5. any berry we can get
10. grapes for me, or papaya for Rob. They are both too expensive to get often but we love them!
I don't have a sweet tooth, either. I just eat what my body needs. I definitely don't eat for my tooth's benefit. ;)
This is so hard becuase i love all these things equally...
5. Carrot-Apple juice
8. Sweet Corn
9. Grapes/Berries (any kind)
5. pumpkin seeds
Throw in a little honey,, olive oil and cilantro and that's almost my entire diet!
lol. I had to keep switching the numbers around. What a hassle! :) not that I mind.
I love cabbage because of the way it And because of it's crunchy texture. I make a couple of good salads using it. So sad that you don't like it. Apparently I have a thing for the cruciferous vegetables, i think cabbage fits in this category. I just had some salad made from a cabbage that I grew.
i love cabbage too! purple cabbage is supposed to have all kinds of cancer fighting nutrients in it too. Although Ive been told to not bring cabbage dishes in for lunch at work anymore. Apparently people don't appreciate the smell.
1. Any types of berries
10. Chia seeds
I love posts like these!
1. raspberries/ strawberries... so hard to choose between the two
2. fresh figs
3. concord grapes
4. mulberries (so hard to find them fresh!!!)
6. heirloom tomatoes
7. coconuts!!! coconut water, young coconuts, mature coconuts, coconut oil..... nothing i don't love about this plant!
Mulberries? We get them off the bike trail here in Northern VA.. Sweet... and free!
wichten: What? Not to bring cabbage dishes... how can they do that to you?
8. young coconuts
