In Topic: Dehydrating

29 March 2013 - 05:54 PM

Hmmm.... I did a lot of flax crackers for a while, because I love those.  Fruit when it's in season (homemade dried fruits are much better, for the ones that dry well).  I've done a few veggies, but never found a method I'm super happy with.  Some "cookie" type things too.  When I was backpacking, I would make my meals and dehydrate them to bring with me (dehydrated chili rehydrates VERY well).


I highly recommend looking at raw recipes - cookbooks, blogs, etc.  They often have things that require dehydrators.

WOW Thanks for the tips!  I really like the flax crackers idea!  :)

I do use a dehydrator.  You're right - it takes a long time to dehydrate food.  It's kind of a pain in the butt because it's big.  but it's very effective. :)

Do you have any recipes or tips?  What do you like to dehydrate the most?

I am going to get a Spirooli (same idea).  I have been very interested in a raw food diet and if I decide to move forward with it or not I know having veggie pasta would be a huge improvement from rice pasta.  I am also going to plant my first garden this summer and will need to get crafty with how I am going to consume my harvest.  I read some of your comments and I am glad to know that you are enjoying yours! :)

what are some of the recipes you use? im always looking for a new one! 


i have the ninja masterfood processor/blender and it works wonders! its by far the best blender I've ever had and at a reasonable price too! my favorite juice is 2c spinach, 1c frozen pineapple and 2 frozen bananas. soo tasty! :)

I don't have any specific recipes that I follow.  No mater what, I always have 50% greens and 50% fruit.  Depending on the day I may put and apple to thicken it up or a banana to make it sweet.  I also will put almonds, ground flax or sesame seeds.  I did find this bag of mixed greens at Costco that had baby kale and spinach and another leafy green and I found it had a very fresh taste when I used it in my smoothie.  With the NB it comes with a recipe book but I tend to just throw in what I have.  I find this way I get variety and each day is a new taste.

In Topic: Domino's (And Some Other Pizzerias)

The actual "pan" that the pizza is cooked on is not something that could ever be cleaned thoroughly of gluten. The same ones are used for all pizzas and are not cleaned in between. The gluten free and gluten pizzas are prepped on the same surface. The toppings come from the same containers, the same cook will usually do everything, especially at peak times of day. That means stretching the gluten dough, saucing it, and topping all the pizzas, which means putting their hands into the bins of toppings. The same toppings they will put on your pizza. There is no hand washing in between. There is nothing gluten free about any of their pizzas.
As a matter of fact, if you read the FAQs on the Domino's website under gluten exposure you will see a disclaimer saying that celiacs should not eat their pizza.

Generally when a restaurant has a gluten free crust it is already on a pan from the manufacturer of the crust.  This would be something that you can confirm.  Also, like most fast food places, there are people with certain areas of production.  Workers who make dough would not likely be putting the toppings on the pizza.
