Do any of you consider that imported produce is irradiated when planning raw meals? I see a lot of recipes for Thai coconuts and durians. All imported nuts are treated upon entry with either pasturization or radiation, some are chemically treated to remove them from their husks/shells. I get concerned because with the effort to get healthy eating what we think is raw, we might be causing ourselves great harm. Do any members of this group eat only local, organic? That is actually my goal, but almonds (although they won’t be raw for long) don’t grow in Texas!
I even see many recipes with raw cacao. It’s not only irradiated, it’s toxic. I think I think too much. How can I live without coconut and chocolate?
