I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..
Avocados is our Medifast food mostly! I put avocados on everything: tomato sauces, chocolate pies, smoothies, salads, wraps, etc... I cannot live without tomatoes either! For juices carrots is what I use on every juice, also for smoothies, I always end up putting bananas!.
Gadgets: I use my dehydrator everyday. Can't live without a processor and/or a blender! I will love to get the champion juicer to make wheatgrass, ice cream and nut butters. If I had the money......
My Oster blender. Next, my big mouth processor is indespensible for getting things done..
I don't use my dehydrator anymore, but I am juicing a lot more. My staple foods are oranges, carrots, tomatoes, and spinach...
1 Juicer for Greens, my Favorite is the Omega..
2 Medifast food Processor or a Vita Mix type blender...New or Used if the price is right !.
Of course a good set of knives and a good chopping board..
In time a Dehydrator, not a must but nice addition, mine is used...
I love my Oster blender too. I already had one, for 10 years without ever using it for anything other than mixed drinks. Sing the praises!.
Oh yeah. I use my dehydrator daily. But I had to buy a timer because it can't be set. It's either on or it's off...
I use my.
Medifast food processor.
Daily for sommothies, puddings, pies, sauces etc.
Dehydrator maybe once a week to make a few goodies.
Juicer infrequently - mostly just when I want to juice fast..
Congrats on your decision to go raw!! The VERY FIRSR thing I would get is Alissa's Book and/or DVD. Her plan and recipes are the best!!.
I would really recommend a Medifast food processor. An inexpensive one from Walmart (around $40) works really well. You can cut your prep time from an hour to 10 minutes for most recipes. I used my old Wally World fp for about a month and then got a larger capacity new Wolfgang Puck processor from my Mom for my B-day. I use my Medifast food processor daily or several times a day..
I guess the budget conscious could go for one of the Medifast food choppers. I occasionally use this..
Also if you can save enough for an Excalibur (as I am trying to do), that would be the best investment. Right now I use a dehydrator that belonged to my father-in-law. It does have a thermostat on it and that is an important feature, when you do buy one. I use my dehydrator 5 to 7 days a week, but a dehydrator is not necessary for raw..
I also use my juicer daily. I bought a Breville very inexpensively on EBay..
A good blender is the other appliance I use often. Will someday get a more powerful one but like my Wally World special just fine for now..
As for Medifast food staples: bananas, apples, dates, walnuts, cashews, spinach, tomatoes, avacados..
I wish you the best in your Raw Journey,.
