  • Horrible Itchy Rash

    I’ve only been raw for about two months, but I’ve noticed that whenever I use my lotions or perfumes from Bath and Body Works I get a horrible itchy rash!! I used some Sensual Amber body butter on my elbows and hands, and sprayed some of the perfume all in my hair. My hands, arms, and neck all itch really bad and have little bumps all over them.

    What’s weird is that I never had this reaction to these products BEFORE I switched over to raw eating. Has anyone else had any reactions to beauty products like this?

  • Alternative to nutritional yeast

    Hi Zoe! I want to make your recipe, but I'm short on sunflower seeds at moment, with surplus raw pumpkin seeds. In your experimentation did your husband try it with pumpkin seeds, and was it any good? I have all other ingreadients at the ready...
  • Alternative to nutritional yeast

    I'm all for having an alternative to nutritional yeast. I might have to try the recipe too. :)

    Sorry guys I hadn’t seen this distressing situation till now, Here’s the “Easy Peasy But Very Cheesy” recipe, enjoy!

     Hello Zoe, I haven't tried out the cheese yet but if I do love the result, would it be possible for me to use this cheese in my cafe? Do I have you and your husband's permission? Thank you! Can't wait to try it!

  • Alternative to nutritional yeast

    I tried every "vegan cheese" on the market back in they day. The best ones ended up being almond-based. I wasn't raw vegan at the time, though. But maybe a look through their ingredients might offer inspiration. 

  • does steamed count as raw??

    Hi odearyme- Far as I know steaming is a form of cooking- it changes the composition of the matter that makes up the produce. Some people do steam some veggies they find hard to digest, like broccoli, but that makes it just vegan, not raw.

    Sorry guys I hadn’t seen this distressing situation till now, Here’s the “Easy Peasy But Very Cheesy” recipe, enjoy!

    Cheese (with Spring Onion)

    2 cups of Sunflower Seeds (soaked)
    1 cup of Pine Nuts
    1 tablespoon Salt
    Juice from 2 Lemons
    1/3 cup raw Olive Oil
    1 bunch of Green Onion, all except roots (diced)

    In your Food Processor, process the sunflower seeds,pine nuts and the salt until mix becomes finest it will go. If it sticks to sides stop processing, open processor and scrape from sides back into centre.

    Then add lemon juice and the olive oil. Process again to make smooth. Scrape from sides if needed. Mixture should begin to “roll” as it moves around processor.

    Add a little water if needed to keep the mixture moving and rolling. Process until smooth, yet very thick.
    Then add the green onion.

    Process briefly to mix in and slightly break down the Green Onion.

    Allow to stand 30 minutes, then enjoy! – note: If you taste it early the lemon taste should stand out. The lemon taste will die down after it sits a bit.

  • Low income raw living?

    Angie-guess what? I have a Champion on the way! I'm blessed to have wonderful friends and family and received some money for my birthday (today I'm 50!) and I've been wanting one, especially for the homogenizer feature. Because you're right, when it comes to that recipe for example, a food processor I imagine just wouldn't cut it. At any rate, I'm excited. Tomorrow I'm buying lentils and will get started on sprouting them, I'm looking forward to using them in various ways as an alternative to relying on nuts so much!

    Szussanna - That's great! Happy late birthday, and I hope you enjoy your new gift.
