  • Best Juicer?

    zinfandel said:

    I need your advice about what kind of juicer I should get.

    I got the manual HealthyJuicer which is great for leafy greens and wheatgrass but is just not practical for everyday use or juicing large amounts. It takes forever to handpump enough for 1 nice sized glass.

    I am thinking of either getting some kind of centrifugal one (Breville) to inspire me to juice daily OR a single gear one (Champion or Omega or something else) for quality.

    What do you think?

     3 or 4 months ago i bought Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juicer it works flawlessly. If you want you go for it the price is not so high, the cost of this juicer is approximately $70.

  • teflex/parraflex sheets ... is silicone ok?

    Isn't waxed paper a petroleum product??? The sausage maker company has fiberglass flexible sheets for sale... The eco friendly parchment could be the best solution, if you don't like the fiberglass suggestion... I use and love mine...

    Hmmmm.... thanks for the heads-up DreamBrother. I was seriously considering saving up for those. I think I'll pass, now.

    Thanks everyone, for your input!

  • teflex/parraflex sheets ... is silicone ok?

    It's definitely possible to use silicone sheets in a dehydrator, but it's important to know that they're not as efficient as teflex or parraflex sheets. Silicone sheets are more porous, which can cause the food to dry out quicker than with the other sheets. Additionally, the silicone sheets don't provide the same level of crispiness that the other sheets do. It's up to you to decide if you want to invest in the other sheets or just give the silicone sheets a try.

    Thanks

  • How Important is Organic Food to you?

    I started improving my diet almost three years ago. If you remember, when all the quarantine craziness began, I realized I have plenty of time to try a new lifestyle. Since then, more than 80% of my food is organic, and I do sport at least three times a week. Moreover, I have some top products and supplements that have changed my lifestyle. One of them is this organic beetroot powder. I get it since it has the best color and no smell which is perfect to use in smoothies or cakes. It has a high nutritional value, so it's definitely a win.

  • What kind of olive oil?

    What kind of olive oil do you guys use? I have been using Bertolli brand but I think it isn’t raw. Thanks!

     I personally source my olive oils from Big Paw Olive Oil brand. They've got tons of choices and I've always had great experience with their products.

  • Being Raw in the City?

    If this is continously happening right after you start transitioning back to raw or fasting, it could be just a detox symptom you may have to ride out until your body becomes balanced again. Strong and/or unsteady emotions are a big sign of your body getting rid of toxins. If you feel like crying...cry...you definitely won't be the first person that's cried in the subways of NYC! If you feel like yelling, find your own lil corner of the world where you can let loose and get some of that out. Detoxing is a great time to get rid of toxic physical issues...as well as mental and emotional! When your emotions start to feel overwhelming, just remind yourself that your body is doing what it has to in order to get you to your optimal health level. i know it really sucks in the meantime, but you'll be much better off in the long-term!

    So, what’s the consensus on vinegars (balsamic, apple cider, etc.)? They seem to be used quite often by rawfoodies. Does anyone know anything negative about them?

    Greg

     Balsamic vinegars are my pet peeve.  The regular store bought is just "heat" thickened cheap sugary juice vinegars.  There is only one Balsamic and that is the Balsamico Tradizioale.
