  • Exercises for the body at home

    I wonder who practices sports at home? What exercises are most effective in your opinion? :)

  • Are dates raw?

    This may be a stupid question, but I really don’t know. When purchasing pitted dates, do you have to watch out for anything, or can you just buy them knowing that they are fresh fruits?

  • exercise every day

    30-40 minutes everyday is enough for overall good health and well-being.

  • WATER FILTER?

    Reverse osmosis can remove chlorine and fluoride. Some whole house water filters specialize in removing chlorine too. I used to have a Brita filter, but didn't like it. My reverse osmosis filter is much better.

  • WATER FILTER?

    Waterdrop WD-PT-04B Water Filter Pitcher. I purchased because of the reviews and cost of replacing filters and I am not disappointed about it. The filter is very good, has no odor and the handle design is also very convenient.

  • Really Dry Skin

    Sounds wonderful @Eloisa. I have also benefitted from coconut oil. Occasionally I have itchiness - I am yet to sort that out out.

  • Weight gain

    I have tried a raw diet for some weeks, not longer. I haven't gained weight, but I definitely don't lose a lot. I even read a bunch of food essays to figure out these things. I can't say I understand it entirely, but I definitely feel better on a raw diet. My parents are surprised that I haven't disappeared, but my explanations fall on deaf ears. I do fall off the wagon now and then, but I just haul myself back. I had a skin problem - that has reduced with my raw diet.

  • Really Dry Skin

    I have found that coconut oil works great for me. You can put it straight on, but I think it is more effective when I make a body scrub(just mix with brown sugar) and use it when showering. If I don't have than, even the sugar/salt scrubs they sell at Trader Joes works well(it was where I got my initial idea to mix the oils and sugars to make my own). My face is still it's own monster, but my body responds pretty well to the scrub and avoiding commercial soaps(if I use them now my skin is dried out and itchy within a few hours).

  • Simple Food Processor Recipes

    Literally right before reading this I just had made banana choco-mint ice cream. I took about 2 heaping cups of sliced frozen bananas, 1 unfrozen banana, a generous drizzle of agave, a spoonful of cacao butter, a spoonful of coconut butter, and 2 pinches of finely chopped mint. I blend that up really really well using a bit of water to get it going. Then I put in about a handful and a half of cacao nibs and blend just enough to incorporate it well. Instant homemade ice cream:]
