  • Lost Control of Watermelon Island

    I see that this thread is already 2 years old, but I still like to comment. Water "poisoning" can be serious, even deadly. I don't think though that the problem was the large amount of watermelon you consumed. If you don't eat much but watermelon for a few days it will cleanse your body, but eating large amount of watermelon PLUS drinking more than a gallon of water a day is way too much. You didn't get sick from the melon, but from the water! I eat lots of raw fruits and vegetables (nothing else) a day and since their water content is high, I only need to drink 2-3 liters (quarts) of water daily, or even less when I eat lots of watermelon.

    If you worry about dangerously low sodium level in your body instead of chips I recommend celery/celery juice (naturally high in sodium, it really tastes salty) and coconut water which naturally packed with eletrolytes.

    I believe that watermelon island is good for your body.

    Good luck!

  • What's your favourite raw snack?

    Remove the pit from a date and replace with any nut of your choice, Cashews, Walnuts, and Macadamias all work great. You could also blend a paste of nuts and tahini as the filling for the date.

    If you are sensitive to heavier combinations such as these, you could try stuffing them with something else, or just eat the dates as they are.

  • What's your favourite raw snack?

    I'm new to raw (have been unsuccessful at past attempts, but have been going really well on the raw cleanse). Today I was with friends at a birthday who were all eating junk snacks. Unfortunately I hadn't prepared well and by the end I was hungry so I had some crisps. It was not a huge deal, I didn't have many, but I'm feeling the effects later on. I'm seeing this as a good thing, I'm adjusting to raw and my body doesn't want processed foods, yay! I am wondering, though, what everyone's favourite snacks are. This is step one in preparing myself better from now on, I will also check out the recipe section!!

  • How do I commit myself to a 100% raw food diet, when...

    I know this is an older post, but wanted to say that bananas are a perfect starchy fruit for smoothies if you can handle them. I myself don't like bananas in my smoothies though.

    How is your smoothie diet going?
