Tips & Tricks for Dining out RAW


 

  1. Try to select restaurants that serve fresh green salads. Vietnamese, Italian & Mexican restaurants are great place to dine.
  1. Mexican restaurants usually have homemade guacamole, salsas, pico de gallo and fresh salads.
  1. Italian restaurants have extra virgin olive oil, lemons and typically will offer “raw” vinaigrette and raw veggies.
  1. Steak restaurants are also a great choice; I know I did say “steak”! The higher end places that offer high quality a la carte everything. They typically do “made to order” vegetable sides and often you could order a side of lemons and olive oil, it’s delicious.
  1. Order double orders of salad.
  1. Drink plenty of water.
  1. Ask for extra veggies on the side or with your salad.
  1. When in doubt pack a raw bar or snack, which helps with temptation.

  1. Check menus and even call ahead to inquire about specials not listed to take the anxiety out of ordering.
  1. Order a fruit smoothie or juice to start. If you are driving to meet friends or clients make a super drink/ smoothie and drink it on the way to your destination.
  1. Inquire about cold soups, sometimes they are 100% raw.
  1. Bring a mini bottle of your own delicious raw salad dressing, you’re friends will end up wanting to try yours!
  1. A side of fresh avocado goes a long way accompanied with a fresh green salad.

  1. Bring your own raw hummus and order fresh carrots, cucumbers and celery. It travels well and can be discreetly placed on your veggie plate.

Beat the “Winter Blues” With This Quick & Easy Juice Drink

10 Minutes or less Raw Juice

What a great way to start your day or cure a case of the wintertime blues. If you are in a rainy climate as I am, you’ll especially enjoy this simple energy boosting drink!


5 to 7 Organic Carrots

I use veggie wash and a good brush, trimming off tops


Generous Handful of Parsley

Wash & trim stems


 

1/2 inch of Fresh Ginger Root

Use a spoon or veggie peeler to remove outer shell


4 Kale Stalks or Stems

I usually have bunches of Kale Stems left over which are great for adding additional vitamins and nutrients to my juice drink.

 


Place all of the above in a juicer.

Be sure to save the left over pulp for your future cracker or bread recipes!

For those of you not into raw veggie drinks, this would be a good one to start with.

The carrots are so naturally sweet that you can’t taste the kale & the parsley leaves a clean crisp finish to the drink.

 

 


Portobello Burger, Warm Mash No-tatoes & Onion Straws

Portobello Burger

Delicious almond/ buckwheat hamburger bun, served with a tart Cream sauce and topped with Heirloom Tomatoes, Onions Straws and Alfalfa Sprouts.


Portobello Steaks

Portobello(s) were marinated in Fresh Lemon juice, minced garlic, Nama shoyu and cold pressed olive oil for one hour. After marinating they were transferred to the dehydrator for 6 hours. I checked them every couple of hours and applied more marinate to keep them moist and evenly flavored.


Onion Straws

Massage 5 Onions in Date Paste, Nama Shoyu & Olive Oil. Dehydrate on texflex sheet for 24 hours, remove and transfer to mesh sheet dehydrating for another 12 hours.


Warm Mash No-tatoes

In a food processor, blend Parsnips, Jicama, fresh Garlic, Olive Oil, Nutritional Yeast, Water, Salt and Pepper. Once you achieve the consistency you’d like transfer to a glass bowl and place on the bottom shelf of the dehydrator to warm.

 

Hamburger Bun

Blend together Zucchini, Olive Oil, Garlic, Red Miso, Flax Meal, Almond Flour, Buckwheat Flour, Fresh Lemon Juice, Nutritional Yeast, Fresh Rosemary, Coriander, White Pepper, Sea Salt & Pepper.

Most of the raw hamburger/ sandwich buns we’ve had have been like little hockey pucks or terribly bland in flavor. These are so flavorful, moist and easy to bite down on. I opted to keep the skins on the Zucchini to so that I didn’t waste any of the vitamins, you could leave off which would give the bun a more golden appearance.


Onion Straws & Plating

You could really have some fun with the Onion Straws by creating some great visuals for plating.

For those parents out there, kids love these tasty onion treats and think they are onion rings! Great way to get your toddler or kids to eat these awesome cancer fighting foods.


So good they don’t know its health food!

I have never been able to get the kids to eat mushrooms. No matter how clever I am at  hiding them in a dish, my daughter finds every one and picks them out. These steaks were so flavorful that she didn’t even give it a second thought and ate it all. My Son had two helpings of the potatoes and my husband stated it was the best meal ever!


Have fun with this dish and be sure to share it with your love ones!

🙂

Enjoy!
