Is something organic if it is shipped across the country? What about the fuel that is used and how that affects our environment, not to mention the freshness of the food and a myriad of other factors. Over the last few years i have been reading everything i can get my hands on to help me answer these and other questions so sit back, relax and explore where my quest has taken me thus far.

RAW day 1 after dinner

After dinner on day 1 we both went a little nuts and made a ton of extra food to be used for other meals. One item that was very successfully made was flax crackers! YAY! We finally made crackers!!!

Here is the super simple cracker recipe:
1/2 C flax seeds
2 tbsp chia seeds

mix and cover with water for 1.5 hours refilling water as necessary. You are looking for a sort of gooey consistency to occur. season to taste (the seasonings will get sucked up by the flax and chia). Spread out thinly on to one or 2 jellyrolls and dehydrate @ 135 F for 8 +/- hours.

I have no idea what that means but they are yummy.
12 prunes
1/4 C unpasturized soy sauce
1/4 C raw apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp fresh chopped ginger
12 fresh water chestnuts

(opt) throw in a handful of raisins

soak all except chestnuts overnight. stuff prunes with chestnuts and eat.

Goji berry bars

1 C dried coconut
1/2 C almonds, soak, de-skin
1/2 C cashews, soak
1 Lg apple, chopped
1/4 C agave
1/2 C rasins
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 C dried goji berries (soak)
1/2 C pepitas
dash cinnamon

coarsely chop nuts, berries and seeds, set aside.
blend apple, agave, raisins and vanilla until smooth. Combine all together ad spread thickly onto mesh sheet, do not exceed 1/2", probably 1/4" is better for shorter dehydration time. Dehydrate @ 135F for +/- 24 hours (if closer to 1/4" thick can probably do more like 12 hours.
Cut into chunks and enjoy (which we totally did!)
