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 weird….does anyone else notice that after a few days of eating raw…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, I’ve heard mentioned, but don’t know much about it. I’m trying to keep it simple. Freezing stuff….I am making that FANTASTIC green and gone smoothie…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. ANYWAY…thanks for this fabulous website.
