Trying to learn Raw

I’m just starting to learn about going raw. My 3 1/2 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and she has already had heart surgury when she was 3 months old. So I think this is what I need to do for her health and the rest of my family. And I think eating raw is just really cool! Can anyone suggest recipes that my 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 year old kids would like, or where I can find some? I’m also still nursing my 1 1/2 year old, and I don’t want to compromise my milk supply. Any advice for a nursing mom? Thanks for any replies. :)

    Hi there, and welcome ;) The Boutenko kids wrote a raw recipe book when they were still young teenagers called “Eating without heating” by Sergei and Valya Boutenko, it’s great.

    This website is the bet resource for recipes, just trawl through them and I’m sure you’ll see things and think, ooh she’ll love that!

    Have you read Shazzie’s journal? She had a baby and was nursing her before she stopped writing it there’s good info on there: http://www.shazzie.com/raw/journal/ It’s 2005-2006 baby time I think!

    Also check out SuperMum Jinjee who has had 5 raw pregnancies and a whole raw family, they are amazing, so inspirational: http://www.thegardendiet.com/

    There are also plenty of raw moms on this site, so there’s plenty of help for you. It’s really wonderful that you’re doing thi for your family, they are so blessed to have you as their mum ;)

    i have taught little kids but i’m not a mom. i suggest lots of finger foods. there was a blog about a toddler who was raw’s diet. he seems to have a lot of raw fruits/veggies, crackers, and smoothies. he even has his own special drawer in the fridge with special snacks just for him! so cool!

    he’s the link: http://rawtoddleralex.blogspot.com/

  • bitt, I was wondering where that blog went! I thought it was rawbabyalex.blogspot.com. They must have moved it to a different URL. I love that blog. <3>
