I just love how I feel when I eat raw foods.
I do not do it everyday but I am aspiring to be 80% raw vegan.
I love to make simple raw foods that are flavor explosions.
However, I am looking for a few more.
So, if anyone has any raw food recipes that are simple and extremely flavorable, please share with me on this post.

TabbyMc, I'm mostly raw vegan now and have evolved a lot of my own recipes from ones I found online.
One site I love is Addicted to Veggies. Her recipes aren't always simple, but they are always superbly flavorsome. She clearly adores food and eating! I also like that she gives info on using the oven instead of a dehydrator, I have one, but it's a big investment so especially when starting out raw most people don't. It's amazing the difference in taste lightly dehydrating veggies can make.
Her Romano sauce over zucchini pasta is a meal I love and great for weight loss as it's lower calorie.
She does a Thai satay style sauce that is great over salads or lightly dehydrated stir fry veggies, nice when gently warmed too. I might make that today!
Flax seed crackers can be made far more interesting and tasty by altering the basic recipe of one cup seeds to one cup liquid. I use ground linseed, a small amount of salt, and for the liquid part I use a cup of veggies mushed up in my food processor. Zucchini and red pepper with some basil and garlic is particularly good. Usually so much water is present in the veggies no extra water is needed. These are wonderfully flavorsome! Using a little less linseed and adding about a quarter cup of ground almonds or coconut flour means they dry softer and can be used as wraps.
Even though some raw vegan recipes might be too indulgent for weight loss (all those nuts, dates, and agave in the cakes and sweets!) it's fab both for feeling good and for gaining health. I lost my stubborn last 20 pounds when I went from vegan to raw vegan. Cutting out grains and soy made the difference, I think.
Unfortunately I broke my foot a few months ago and put seven pounds back on because I couldn't walk, but it's coming off again now.
My feeling is when we're mostly raw, eating a good balance of veggies, fruit, nuts and seeds; not too much of the indulgent stuff; and exercising enough, our weight should stabilise somewhere healthy.
Good luck with your eating and weight loss adventures!
