First, if you want to be healthy, then you need to feed your body properly. Learn about macros here:

    Second, what's your daily eating scheduling like? Ex. just breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or with mid-morning & mid-afternoon snacks, or with dessert, and so on? I'd recommend picking one category & then working on building up a week's worth of recipes for that meal or snack eating period, so that you can add some rotation & variety into your diet. Then move on to the next category, do the same thing, and repeat until finished. That gives you a really solid foundation of recipes with a variety of flavors to choose from on a week to week basis. You can build up to more than just a week's worth of recipes as you find new recipes that you want to keep in your collection!

    Slowly adopting a dietary change like this also allows your gut bacteria to catch up at a normal pace; a lot of people just dive right into it & have a rough first few weeks because their GI tract isn't used to all of the fiber & other stuff flowing into it. It's like when you eat bean chili after not eating it for a long time...it can cause havoc on your system, not because it's bad for you, but simply because you don't have the right gut flora built up so that the good bacteria in your system can properly manage your new standard diet.

    Third, I would recommend investing in some high-quality tools. Note that you don't have to buy any of these, and if you do want them, you don't have to buy them all at once - totally okay to piecemeal it & save up for them! Here are what I'd consider the "essentials":

  • A high-quality blender, such as a Vitamix or Blendtec, that will last you a really long time & actually puree ingredients, not just blend them into smaller chunks like cheaper blenders do. This is an essential tool for smoothies & soups.
  • A food processor. A decent one runs about $40 on Amazon.
  • A really, really good knife. If I only had to choose a single knife for my kitchen, it would be my 9.5" Dalstrong Chef's knife. This is a $130 knife that performs at a $500 level. Really expensive for just a single knife, but also really good. If you're going to do raw vegan, having an amazing, incredible knife makes kitchen work fun vs. a being a chore.
  • Carbon-steel Y-peelers. These don't last forever, but they're cheap (3-pack for $10) & do an AMAZING job of peeling everything from fruit butternut squash.
  • A vacuum-sealer setup. Decent vac-sealers go for about $50 on Amazon. You can buy pre-cut bags or rolls that you can to size (use titanium scissors to cut the plastic bags).

    If you have the budget available or are willing to save up, here are a few extra tools that are really good:

  • A juicer. There are two good options: masticating & slow auger. Good ones are not cheap, but will last a long time & give you the most juice possible. Champion makes really amazing masticating juicers, and their new model has an auger for greens as well. I have an older unit & really like it for both juicing & for making banana ice cream (throw some nuts & hemp seeds on top & it makes for a great breakfast!). As far as the other design goes, the Tribest slow juicer is one of the best-rated cold-press juicers out there.
  • Citrus juicer. This is basically a manual reamer mounted to a motor. You simply cut your citrus fruit in half, then press down, which activates the motor. If you do a lot of oranges, lemons, grapefruits, etc., this is worth having.
  • Salad Shooter Pro. This is kind of like a portable food processor, although it's way more convenient for shredding things. The fine-shred cone is sold separately & is the one that I use all the time.
  • If you have a large budget available, residential freezer-dryers are available for a few thousand dollars. They can be a bit finicky to operate (a lot of people spring for an oil-free pump), but if you plan on doing this long-term, you may want to start a savings program that runs for a few years to save up for one, as it has multiple benefits: it can store food for really long periods of time, and it helps reduce waste because you can freezer-dry anything that is about to go bad, instead of throwing it away or composting it.

This might be a good excuse to make a big old-school punch, David Wondrich style with the oleo saccharum and everything.

Barring that, my usual go-to for a crowd pleaser that easy to batch is Jim Meehan's Green Tea Punch. It's basically a classic grog but with green tea and mint tea for the "weak" component.


If you do end up having to juice a bunch of citrus, I definitely recommend straining it before you use it, and you may wanna use this opportunity to get a juicer more suited to higher volume. Even a cheap one like this will make the job a lot easier.
