So... let's look at kitchen appliances...
you filled your fridge with fresh fruits and vegetables...
you started your Raw Food Diet!
In order to start a Raw food Diet you basically only need a good knife and a cutting board. You don't need all the mentioned kitchen appliance...
And then, there are some really great dishes you could prepare if you did had some help. It really depends on what you like... and where you want to go.
One sure thing:
You'll never burn your food again!
Make sure you have a good knife and a cutting board!
Re-discover the 'simple' tastes... an apple, a cucumber, spinach... melon.
One taste at a time or combined in a salad...
And then, a time may come, when you would like to experiment with textures and tastes, become more creative... This will be the time to find the right kitchen appliances.
You won't need every kitchen appliance... don't run out and buy everything until you are sure you will use it!
Most likely you already have one or more of the appliances in your kitchen, anyway.
A strong high-speed blender is the first essential tool you will need. Because you will use your blender several times a day, investing in a high quality blender is a smart move… and will service your raw food diet cooking needs, for many years to come.
With a high-speed blender it is possible to prepare shakes, smoothies, soups, drink mixes, and sauces. You will also be able to prepare thick mixes which you will need for your dehydrator to make 'bread' for sandwiches and cake bottoms and various delicious crackers.
Making fresh fruit juice or vegetable juice mixes is best made with a high-quality juicer. This is a tasty way to get a plentiful intake of your fruits and veggies in one day. There are many inexpensive juicers on the market... they will do the job for a while...
Slow juicers are top choice... they squeeze the juice out of the vegetables and fruits so as to preserve the enzymes.
Once you start using this tool, you won't know how you managed without it. A dehydrator is basically a warm oven – not exceeding 47 degrees Celsius, which extracts moisture from prepared foods such as vegetables, fruits and thick mixes over a period of 12 to 24 hours. Dehydrated food can be kept for a long period of time and makes great snack foods. The raw food dehydrator is also used in preparing mixes for cakes and pies and is used as the bottom replacing dough mixes.
In warm climates you can build an outdoor dehydrator... basically stacked trays... covered with a light cloth to prevent insects and birds to nibble at your food...

This is a three or four level plastic container with tiny holes for drainage at the bottom of each one. Experiment with the seeds... they can be purchased at the health food store and sprouted in these containers using only water. Within several days you will have plenty of fresh sprouts to toss into salads. They are truly the freshest and easiest way to get top-quality nourishment for your new found health.
I wish... for wheat grass shots...
