  • Best Juicer?

    Hi, a juicer under a $100 good for a household of 3 members. I don't want to spend much but still need an efficient unit.

  • How do you afford all of those nuts?

    Those are the best prices I've seen yet. I'm in the US, though (sorry I didn't say) and it looks like they don't ship for free and I'm guessing it's costly. I can't find that info on their site. Thanks for the info.

    Have you tried Amazon? I know it's not the first place to think of when it comes to nuts, but I've had some luck over there.

  • HIGH calorie raw foods. PLEASE

    hello, could someone please give me a good list of raw food that is very high in calories. ive been told im too skinny (6’2”, 160 pounds [mind you, i weighed on some random cheapo scale at a wal-mart, so that may not be accurate]) and that i need to take in more calories. i personally dont think im too skinny, but my partner thinks so. So i’m going to try and eat more and take in more calories. normally on a day to day basis, i wake up and have limeade (juice from 1 lime OR 1 lemon, about 10 oz of spring water, about 2 tsp of raw honey, and 2 pinches of cayenne pepper), then a green smoothie (two big handfuls of mixed organic greens, 2 kale leaves, 1-2 oranges, 2 kiwis, 1 banana, 1 tbl of ground flax seeds, a little raw honey and some ice), then something else around dinner time, and then a fruit based smoothie with a TON of wheatgrass in it. is this not enough food? someone please tell me about some high calorie raw foods!

  • I"m Tryin'

    For the last year I have tried off and on to stay raw. At least try to eat more raw. This has been hard.I have cravings. Salt and sugar. The one thing that brings me out of raw is my egg and potato tacos. Also, the prep that is involved in the raw diet. I don't have a lot of time. I have kids, husband, job. I would have thought raw prep was not involved, but it is. I am looking for something easy. Then of course my husband makes amazing BBQ! OMG its so so so good! But I get sick nearly every time I eat it. This has nothing to do with his ability to cook. I have a problem eating cooked food. A couple years ago, I all of a sudden started having food allergies. This stinks!  I do love the raw food diet tho! It tastes good, my abdomen doesnt' hurt, I am not nauseaus, I don't swell, get migraines.

    I have a couple of medical issues. I am Type 2 diabetic, I have a growing tumor on my adrenal gland, I also have lesions on my brain (possible ms, maybe something else??). I get muscle spasms, my eyes have trouble focusing. I take a low dose of baclofen for the spasms. I cant take anymore because of a reaction. Seems as though I am allergic to everything lately. One of my leasions actually shrunk 1mm. I was so happy. 

    So, the reason for the raw food diet is above. I am having trouble with just sticking to it. I have trouble substituting for allergies. What can I sub for bananas, almonds, apple? Those are the 3 main ingredients that I see I have an allergy to. I have 3 pages of allergies. 

    Every time i go shopping or make dinner, i always think about -will it give me diarrhea, stuffed up nose, migraine, raise my blood sugar, make me swell, make me nauseated, or gain more weight??? I hate that. Ugh! I just want to eat with out worrying about it. But, so goes it. 

    If you have any ideas, , substitutions, please throw me some ideas.  Thank you for letting me vent.

  • Supplement recommendation for teeth on raw vegan diet (fruitarian)

    Hello,I am raw vegan, on a fruit diet of about 90%. Is there a product you could recommend to support teeth? In particular, I noticed at the bottom of teeth near gums it became slightly deteriorating. Not cracks, but tiny notches. It also became more sensitive to brushing, I feel I can't even hold a toothbrush to teeth very close anymore, I hardly touch it, it's that sensitive. I use an electric toothbrush.

  • How do you afford all of those nuts?

    It seems like almost everything has nuts in it. Is there a place online to purchase nuts in bulk? It seems awfully expensive. THANK YOU
