@ fallen_horse I have a few friends that are professional raw chefs, but my method is more of a just throw whatever I have into the vitamix, and hope its not disgusting. I usually add half a cup of water and the juice of two lemons. I'm sure I'll eventually go back to trying to make things taste as good as possible, but right now I like the simplicity of not caring. My fruit meals always taste good, so if my one salad meal is not so great, I'm still enjoying most of what I eat every day.

Fair enough, I have just been looking for a good salad dressing recipe to use with my salads, IE one that doesn't use a lot of oil. I was thinking something with lemon, nutritional yeast, and flax seeds, but it's all a gamble at this point. I know, nutritional yeast isn't raw, but we can't all be raw foodies!

A base for dressing recipe that I like to experiment on is about providing a bit of each taste so the result is full of flavours: squeeze some lemon or lime for sour taste, some hot peppers for spicy taste, Bragg's liquid amino sauce for salty taste, apple cider vinegar, some dates for sweet taste, kale, spinach etc for bitterness, olive oil or some avocado, etc... The salad itself has more possibilities so if the salad has enough flavours no need dressing: corn, sweet peas, peppers, tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, goji berries, strawberries, hemp seeds, pineapple, parsley, romaine lettuce, sprouted fenugreek, alfalfa, rice, etc...

I used to make a dressing with apple cider vinegar, nutritional yeast, and dijon mustard. There were some other things in there too, like garlic powder and what-not. I'm foggy on the specifics. But if you like mustard, it was pretty good.

mmm, raw talk here, nice!
my favorite raw dressing is simple and cheap. Soak shelled sunflower seeds overnight. Drain the soaking water, and rinse seeds 3-5 times again, working the seeds bettween fingers, trying to get rid of the most thin skins that fall of the seeds when soaked. You can also leave the skins on, but they give weird greenish colour.
OK, so once the skins are away, put the seeds in the blender with lots of lemon juice and a little garlic. Blend until smooth, adding some water if necessary. You get something like liquid yoghurt. Put lots of finely chopped dill in it and voila! Great over salads or if you make it without much water, you get a nice dip for veggies.

Thank you! While I was in Florida I was actually closer to 90/5/5 and I loved the way I felt. Best runs of my life. I've stopped all oils. Still do some hemp seeds and a brazil nut a couple times a week. I've bumped up my calories to 4000+ on workout days. Lots of bananas and citrus. I'm torn, I really like running with my current physique, but i'm also curious about how much I can bulk up. We'll see what happens!

Can you give me tips? How many meals do you eat a day? Do you aim for protein ratios or do
you just go for it?
