What happens when food combinations go wrongA
new raw foodist asked what to do with leftovers. I never saw leftovers
as a problem because it seems anything can be thrown into a salad! This
can work really well; for example, if I try a vegetable for the first
time and discover I don't really like it, I can bury it in a salad
where it can be covered up with enough herbs and other flavors that I
can't taste it. Also, if I'm bored, I might combine different foods to
come up with something that looks new and interesting.

another example, raw spaghetti isn't something we made up, but Felicia
wouldn't have bothered to try it if she hadn't had leftover tomato
sauce and yellow squash from the raw lasagna she'd just made. By using
the spiral slicer to make "noodles" from the squash, she ended up with
a tasty meal that was new to us and which put the leftovers to good use.
combining leftovers doesn't work too well, though. Felicia and I have
very different tastes when it comes to flavors and textures, and she is
much more likely to be creative with food combinations than I am. Last
night she made an Ezekiel tortilla wrap, combining guacamole and
taboule. That combination did not work for me at all, although she
thought it was awesome. I'm sure there are many innovative recipes in
my raw future, but I'll be staying away from the "guacaboule,"
