  • I found this recipe when trying to come up with a way to enjoy MACA.  Feel free to substitute the spices for powdered ones if that's what you have on hand.     HOT MACA CHAI 1 1/2 cups water 1/8 cup or one small handful almonds (soaked overnight…
  • When I'm feeling particularly hungry and veggie salad isn't cutting it I will add sprouted quinia or extra nuts.  Raw oats in the morning is helpful as well.  Adding raw almond butter to your smoothie in the morning is a great protein boost and help…
  • Well...whether we all agree on the toxicity of herbs or not...the discussion definitely gets one on study mode.  
  • I also wanted to add (about my libido) is that whenever I'm eating mostly raw (90 to 100%) or have just detoxed/cleansed my libido is through the roof!  I feel tingly sensations throughtout my entire body from fingerstips to toes!!!  Just sayin'.  
  • it's amazing how many reactions Maca has on people.  I recently read an article from www.therawfoodworld.com that truly raw, organic maca might be a thing of the past.  Farmers in Equador are using pesticides and other growing alternatives to produc…
  • Munchie said: As a newbie, here are a few things I would and maybe others in the future would like to know: 1.) I would like info. on produce. How to tell what’s ripe, things to avoid, how to store it properly. I buy produce almost every other…

  • Great suggestions about the coconut.  I'll have to look up that website...www.wildernessfamilynaturals.com.  I think I've seen the family videos a time or two.

  • RawPassion...I can see how the strength in flavor and scent of celery can make you nauseous.....like onions are to me.  I can't stand those suckers! To each his own, I guess.  Cucumbers are so mild that they are easily disguised in other veggies or …
  • I've been using coconut oil as a natural sunblock and have started putting it in my hair as well.  It has remained soft so far this summer.  I'm sure it's the added oil (sunblock)!!  I'm loving it.  
  • I forget about Iodine!  I use sea salt only.  thanks for the reminder!!  
  • Especially if they're hard to come by!
  • I didn't read all the comments, so forgive me if I repeat something that's already been talked about.  But, when I wasn't losing weight right away and was worried about it, I sought out my naturopath for advice.  He told me I was so toxic and my bod…
  • I've been eating young Thai coconuts for 4 years and have only experienced the "pink stuff" this past year.   I ate one that was slightly pink, and it tasted ok.  I ate one that was really pink/purple and it tasted rancid!  Tossed that sucker out!  …
  • It probably took about 4 wks to start seeing a real difference in my weight.  I swear I weighed myself everyday!  lol!  What I did notice first was how I was feeling.  I had more energy, I was sleeping thru the night without taking sleeping pills, a…
  • Welcome to the forum!!  I, too, was 40 lbs overweight with many other medical issues because of the standard american diet I was on.  I went raw almost 4 years ago because it was my last resort.  I lost all that weight and gained my health back in a…
  • From the research I've done over the last 4 years on a mostly raw food diet I have found out that B12 supplimentation is vital to your health.  Matt Monark, from the Raw Food world, has some tutorials on the subject I believe.  
  • I, too, think it's an excellent idea.  
  • What great subjects (hair and skin issues, suppliments, etc...).  Something I think we all deal with at one time or another...especially on a new diet we're on.  Great suggestions by all!  I do think it's a great idea to be checked by your doctor or…
  • Welcome!  I look forward to experiencing your raw journey with the Rawtarian community.
