I'm Going Raw with the Raw Burrito Wrap

I’m Going Raw (with a Raw Burrito Wrap)!

Somewhere, someone is reading the title and is having illicit thoughts. Um, yeah, you’ve read that right. I’m going #gasp raw for the next 21 days. Yes, TWENTY-ONE DAYS! But Sug, why come? Well, I have a video. Check it out (if you haven’t already) before I get into the raw burrito wrap recipe.

(But Sug, I haven’t seen this video. That’s cause it’s on my second channel.)

Anywho, my official raw food challenge starts today. I thought it would be wise to practice so not to be too shocked when my official start date arrived. My first experiment was…a RAW BURRITO WRAP*!!

You too can make this wrap and here’s how (I do realize that fall is among us and a lot of these veggies are “out of season.”)

You’ll need:

  • 3 Tomatoes (diced into small cubes)
  • 2 Ripe Avocados
  • 1 Ear of FRESH corn (remove the kernels and dice half of them)
  • 3 Garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1/2 Jalapeno pepper (or less if it’s too spicy, remove seeds)
  • 1/4 Cup of Cilantro (chopped) I always say ‘cilantro’ with a heavy British accent.
  • 2 Teaspoons of FRESH Lime Juice
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 Head of Lettuce

Because I have HUNGRY Hippos, I doubled the recipe.

(Everything minus the lettuce, garlic, the other limes & salt. But Sug, that’s NOT everything.)

(Diced Tomatoes)

(Jalapenos)

(Garlic)

(Cilantro)

(Corn)

Nesco American Harvest FD-61 Snackmaster Encore Dehydrator and Jerky Maker

(Avocados)

(Lime Juice)

(Combine Ingredients)

(NomNomNom)

(Add to a lettuce leaf)

(Roll it like a burrito..cause that’s what it is. #POW!)

ENJOY!!

The verdict?

My family LOVED IT!! The original raw burrito wrap recipe that I found didn’t include sea salt and I found that it was a bit bland.

How would I modify this recipe?

  • Use 1 less avocado
  • Use more corn
  • Add green onions
  • Add a sour cream (raw cashew sour cream)
  • Add pepper
  • Add raw salsa

Pros:

  • Cost less than 7 dollars to feed a family of 5!
  • The burrito mixture held up so I was able to eat it as leftovers the next day.
  • This taste GREAT with chips!!

Cons:

  • Preparation

I can’t wait to try it again…that’ll probably be next week. ^_^

That’s it. Thanks for reading. :D

*I found this raw burrito wrap recipe online..but I don’t know where. I think the sock monster stole it. Smh

    This wrap looks really good! When I think of a “raw food diet” all kinds of tomfollery pops in my head.. LOL! But I know I could do this. Thanks for sharing Sug.

      Ha! Mine too. That’s why I had to practice.

    I so want to jump on the band wagon. Question: whata the temp range on your dehydrator? I was gung ho about it cause I already have a dehydrator. But then I read that in order to still technically be raw the dehydrator cannot heat above 105° or it will kill the enzymes and will not be raw anymore . My dehydrator heats up to 160° O_O. I wanted to do me some snacks to help keep me on track. Hopefully I can start tomorrow. Lol

    • http://www.whoissugar.com suggie

      Alright, I’m no expert but here is what I’ve deducted from my research. If you make soups and stews, you can heat them to a temperature no greater than 105 degrees. When dehydrating fruits and veggies, there is a process called low temperature dehydration where you “cook” your food between 110 and 115 degrees. Depending on the moisture content, this temperature can take forever to prepare your food.

      As a result of the long cook times, bacteria may grow on your food. I’ve read some say time cook it at 145 degrees for a few hours and then turn it down. O_o My dehydrator warms to 160 degrees but I set mine to bornday greater that 115 degrees. That’s supposed to be a safe maximum temperature. Hope this helps…hope I’m right. Ha!

        Thanks Sug. Looks like I’ll be needing a new dehydrator. Cause mine has no temp control. And that was what I was hoping the one u have has. And it does :-)

    Hmm, ok, it looks good. What kind of lettuce are you using, iceberg or romaine? I was once told that iceberg lettuce has more water content and less nutrients than romaine, therefore it isn’t as healthy. Of course, I still eat it cause I luvz me a salad. Now I’m craving Mexican. Sorry Sug, but I gotta have me a cooked burrito, but I applaud your efforts. I can’t wait to hear what the overall results after 21 days are up.

    • http://www.whoissugar.com suggie

      Romaine is better for ya but use what you have available. :D Yeah, cooked burritos taste better but I’m going to stick this thing out. Thank you so much. :D

  • gigi

    yummmmmmmmmmmm!! wow Sug, thought it was just gonna be you doing this/ the boys are very brave indeed~ well done! wonder if Tiny will be jealous or just mock you all

    • http://www.whoissugar.com suggie

      Probably mock us. She doesn’t even beg for food. Smh

  • Brownaturalady

    Ohhhh tht looks and sounds so good you had me a avocado and corn mmmmmm. Yeah definitely have to try this. Thanks Sug. Is it to much to ask- for a what’s for dinner or lunch blog? I knw u have to be creative when going raw. I have looked into it and I knw it’s a great lifestyle and detox. I think the problem for me is -what do I make with this package of tomatoes/lettuce so they won’t go bad. You knw it can get boring eating the same thing for 3 weeks. I don’t have a family to help eat. Thnks again. Peace. Good start.

    • http://www.whoissugar.com suggie

      I’ll do the best I can as far as updating what we all ate and how my family like it. I don’t want this too become a chore but I still want to help others keep it cute and creative. :)

    Good luck! I’m rooting for you. Here’s a site that gets me hyped on health, and I think you’ll love it, Heyfranhey.com. Girl I understand and feel your pain with the juicing. I blend my greens and friits for green smoothie, and just use my juicer for carrots and beets. I get so mad when I have 3 full bags of carrots from the farmers market, and only like 4 cups of liquid comes out. Anyway, can you let us know if any changes in your health after the 21 days? Check out the receipes at http://heyfranhey.com/tagged/ntrecipes.

      Thanks. I follow her on tumblr. ^_^

    I’ve always wanted to do the raw thing but I’ll wait a few years until I’m done birthin’ and feedin’ babies to jump on board.

  • http://littlefootsjourney.com ladylittlefoot

    I’ll be following. I admire your gumption I like my cooked food too much to give it up but maybe I’ll do like you and try it for a few weeks.

    I’m rooting for your boys to stick it out to the end.
