Get the most out of new RAW RECIPES!

Through writing cookbooks and creating menu plans for my Boot Camp, I have learn a pretty cool strategy for saving time and money in the kitchen!

Are you ready for it?

Here it is: When you prepare a new recipe, make it more than once  

Okay, this sounds pretty simple…but it’s also pretty profound. Making a recipe once is pretty expensive. Think about it. You go to the store and buy all the ingredients you need for a new recipe. Then you make the recipe and that’s the fun part. The bad part is that you have a lot of ingredients leftover. Often these ingredients are forgotten about and go unused. For example, say I needed shoyu sauce (i.e. a type of fermented soy sauce) for a new recipe. I buy it, make the recipe, but then I only end up using it once….well, if I paid $5 for the bottle and I only used it once, it ended up being a very expensive ingredient. This is why remaking a recipe will save you money. If you remake the recipe, it’s a guarantee that you will use all of the ingredients you purchase.

Remaking a recipe will also save you time. Let’s be honest, making a new recipe takes more time than making a dish you already know. So, when you remake a new recipe 2-3 times within the same week, you will find that you make the most out of your time in the kitchen. The recipe may take more time the first time you make it, but the second or third time will be considerably faster. I use this same logic when creating menu plans and it really works!

When you prepare menu plans like this, you won’t get tired of the recipes either. My Boot Campers have told me that it’s actually a relief to not have to make a brand new recipe every day.

So try this at home and let me know how it turns out!

  1. Hi, just ‘found’ you today on FaceBook and truly appreciate this concept. I see that I missed the last session. I would appreciate it very much if you could forward the start date of your next session. I can be contacted through Facebook and I believe I LIKED your page, so I am now following you. Thanks in advance, have a great day.

  2. you can star little by little (like I am doing) 25-50% raw to 75-50% cooked. You really need some cooked foods (absoreved and digested better and easier ) garlic, tomatoes, artichokes, even asparagus, beans and legumes, some root veggies better cooked. etc… then little by little introduce more recibes that are raw. I too need to eat something warm everyday or my stomach go out of balance.

  3. Hello I have been on your site many times and have even been able to make some of your delicious recipes. However due to my lifelong indoctrination of cooked foods I fall off. I would love to re orientate myself on my eating habits and I believe this would be essential to my HIV status. My Tcells do not multiply as they should and my inner voice tells me it is due to diet. I have learned that our immune system operates almost 100% from our stomach. Mine I’m sure is way polluted!! : ) Is their anyway possible that I could split your boot camp charge and join in this session. For me it is a life or death issue and i will attempt the change as many time as I have to until I do. It would be much easier if I had the proper guidance. HELP!!!
