I am new to all of this. I have been on a SAD diet for almost 50 years (oops…ok…I’m close to it!) and have had constant problems. I met a raw food couple a few years ago while they were in the Keys visiting and they left a lasting impression. I have wanted to go in that direction for 2 years now. The last straw was food poisoning a few months ago. So, I kicked a bunch of habits. 5 years ago, I stopped a 12 pack a day diet coke habit, and three months ago I kicked the 4 cups of Cuban coffee a day habit. I stopped eating meat of any kind and I stopped eating most dairy. I slip on the occasional cheese & cracker thing. I gave up breads. If I eat anything cooked these days (besides the cheese and cracker slip ups), it is vegetarian. I have questions which will sound weirdÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.does anyone else notice that after a few days of eating rawÃ¢â‚¬Â¦cooked stuff, of any kind, seems tasteless and bland? Does anyone else but me, get stomach problems (heart burn/gas/indigestion) after eating cooked food? Food combining, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve heard mentioned, but donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know much about it. I’m trying to keep it simple. Freezing stuffÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.I am making that FANTASTIC green and gone smoothieÃ¢â‚¬Â¦can I freeze the leftovers for the next morning. I have been doing that and mixing it with a frozen banana and some water in the blender the next morning. BUT I do not know how much nutritional value I may be losing. ANYWAYÃ¢â‚¬Â¦thanks for this fabulous website.
