    We do talk about bicycling sometimes, but that's not quite the same thing I suppose.

  • Ethical fruitarianism

    Absolutely, the concept is beautiful.. Not to mention that seeds are living beings even though they are in a dormant state. Like all living beings, they respire (they use glucose and oxygen, and release carbone dioxide and water). Respiration is the hallmark of life. Seeds are fully alive.

  • Eat a Ground Avocado Pit?

    Rawk~

    Do you think a kitchen aid blender could do it? We have the glass carafe kitchen aid and it blends kale and nuts seeds smooth in smoothies and totally slushies ice. Should I chop it first?

    We bought a Macarthur avocado a couple months ago that was sprouting when we cut into it so we put the seed in h20 and it took off it is now over a foot and in good soil we live in Wa so it is indoors do you know of any good info resources for growing avos?

    Thanks

     I think a kitchen blender could do it, yes. Chopping before blending is a good idea!

  • Best Juicer?

    I have a vitamix (hand me down!!)that I use all the time, but I feel like a juicer would still be a nice addition since I drink a lot of pulpy green Juicy right now. Does anyone have a favorite? Thanks so much.

  • Phlegm/mucus reaction after eating fruit or salad

    Not sure when I posed this as there is no date lol. I'm doing better sort of, still detoxing I guess. After I eat a large salad with avocado in it my liver gets kind of hot for a while and I have to sit/lay down for a couple hours. I can see my tongue coating changing though, it's becoming clearer with patches of normal and what coating is there is pale white. A year and a half ago it would turn dark yellow with red bumps (signifying heat I think). 

    Anyways, I came back here to ask pretty much the same question I did initially, I tend to want a salad in the evening, and it makes me really thirsty afterwards, but if I have an orange or some coconut water I always get acid reflux or fermentation or something. Guess I just gotta learn this lesson, or juice my greens, or eat less avocado.......... ugh..

    Thanks for all the old replies. Lol

    My instincts tell me that you should first cut out bananas for awhile. If that doesn't work cut out the avocados temporarily.

  • Money, money, money....

    If you are trying to avoid spending money on food one way is to eat the most nutrient dense foods that you enjoy. Find out what foods suppress your appetite while delivering lots of minerals. The reasoning behind this strategy is simply that otherwise you will find yourself more likely to give into social temptations or other cravings and justifying it with strange logic. There are definitely values you can exploit for your gain because let's face it, raw foodists are in the minority in this culture.

  • Cheat meals..

    Hi there.  I'm having some trouble binging sometimes.  A few weeks ago it was fast food bean burritos, and yesterday I had some pitta bread with butter and salt. These foods made me feel good for a few hours but extremely heavy,  and after a while I felt intermittent burning sensations in different parts of my stomach and liver.  Just giving details in case it helps with anyones input.

    Mainly I'd like to know what people think are the safest cheat foods. Is there anything, anything at all that can replace bread? Is there a healthier version..? I feel like I'm starving but I'm tired of fruit vegetables and avocados..  I don't even want to go near nuts,  they're impossible to digest. I also hate bananas and dates now. Thanks

  • Algae Oil DHA EPA

     

    I would like to get some opinions on whether low fat raw vegans should supplement with Algaeoil to get DHA EPA. smile
    I personally use it for over a year now but I am not sure whether it is really good for me or not since I don't include oil in my diet otherwise.
