  • IMHO 100% raw vs partial raw is an individual thing. The best nutritional advice I know of comes from drfuhrman.com. He advocates what he calls a 'nutritarian' diet - rich in fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, berries, mushrooms and some legumes…
  • I like to get large sheets of kelp to use instead of the dried nori sheets. And I line that with a large red cabbage leaf and then add some pate, sprouts, any veggies like grated carrots, greens, and/or avo. It's awesome!
  • You can sometimes get good bargains on eBay, used Norwalks. I had one briefly. I picked up an old Norwalk at a garage sale for $75. It was a real pain to use and clean. If you're not careful, it shoots the veggies up to the ceiling (!). I did get it…

  • The Sedona Method by Hale Dwoskin. It's a self-help technique for letting go of uncomfortable feelings, beliefs, and emotions on the spot. I use it in my coaching a LOT and it is really really good. The nice thing about the book is, he gives you eve…

  • dreasraw, I'll research the rice/pasta bit. I know what you mean. About the bread, I often substitute a collard or romain leaf for bread in sandwiches or wraps. And also, I think that the onion bread on this site is relatively light.
  • dreasraw, What kinds of things do you eat when you're not raw that you miss? Maybe we can figure out some raw versions... Here are some things that help me: I usually keep 1-2 raw pates or seed cheeses in the fridge. Sushi rolls with veggies and som…
  • I'm hungry when I go raw when I don't eat enough sweet ripe fruits, specifically in fruit salads. Here's something that always keeps me satisfied for hours, without any heaviness - a fruit salad with: 3-4 pieces of sweet fruit (peaches, nectarines, …
  • The sproutpeople have a ton of videos on youtube showing exactly how to do it. They've done a great job on them, and show you what the sprouts look like at each rinsing, how to soak, how long, how to rinse, in absolute complete detail.

  • My temp is always low, too - 97.6 usually. And I've been tired all my life. What has helped immensively are herbs from this place: http://www.wilsonssyndrome.com It's a very interesting site about low temperature syndrome. The herbs that are helping…
  • joyce, I love your blog! What a generous first post. The food! I definitely want to be your neighbor. I couldn't find a place to leave a comment, but I would have like to. I've bookmarked your blog and will be back for the recipes and great pictures…

  • Fruit. Lots of it. Two things help me a lot: Greens and fruit. A nice big fruit salad, with 2-4 pieces of sweet juicy fruit and 3-4 dates is my favorite lunch. I makes me full without any heaviness and keeps me 100% satisfied for hours. If I'm super…
  • I used to have an awful time when I needed to give blood, with nurses trying many different sites before they could get a vein and then the blood going slowly. What fixed it was Shazam mentioned: Drinking water the day before and the morning of. Sha…
  • While I appreciate all the hard work, and especially appreciate your providing this wonderful site for free... I have to agree, I really miss the old site. The great pictures on the home page, easy accessibility to everything, the readable text, the…
  • DreamBrother: I agree, that would be a great feature. Emtpdmom: I didn’t find that to work. It just turned up all sorts of pages where members had mentioned her, but no link to her page. But thanks for the suggestion. RawKidChef: Well, the problem i…
  • Oh, ouch! I hope it’s not a brown recluse bite. I don’t know any natural bite remedies, but from all I have read I would suggest as much wheat grass juice and wheat grass poultice as you can get. Build up your body as much as possible to strengthen …
  • Blue_Eyes, FWIW, in my experience those little rodent-type animals can be amazingly sensitive to our changes. There have been mice in my house that make their creepy noises when I’m in bed under the covers and then when I open my eyes and listen the…

  • Less expensive seeds (sunflower, sesame) also make delicious milk. Pumpkin seeds also make a lovely milk.
  • I’m back on caffeine now, too, having started a new job. I feel so much better without it, but… I like it with nut milk and agave nectar. Funnily enough, my favorite nut milk for coffee is pumpkin seed milk. I’m planning to give it up next weekend. …

  • “A man and a woman whose values we loathe and despise, lying, rageful and incompetent, so dangerous to children and old people, to innocent people in every part of the world—are being worshiped, exalted by…” This is what help get McCain/Palin electe…
  • Branwyn32, I know the last photo you posted, with the orange berries, is inedible and maybe poisonous. The others look ok. The first set looks like persimmons. The smartest thing is to take the samples to your local agricultural extension service an…
  • Moth, OMG I cannot believe that happened to you. It is so over the top. I think you handled it very well. I agree with Lady Raven and jellibi. I wouldn’t even respond to them by joining their argument about what I eat, I’d address the fact that they…
  • jenoz, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! For that fabulous info about coconut water kefir. Someone in my town makes the most delicious and wonderful water kefir using the Body Ecology method and I’ve been wanting to do this myself. Hers is so expensi…
  • Ditto what beany said. I use the glass canning jars you can get at Walmart. I’m about to trot down there to buy some more. I also use them to store most of my dried goods. Very handy. You can get them in all sizes.
  • Definitely get the Blendtec. I use mine almost every day. I chose the Blendtec over the Vitamix for a variety of reasons. (There are a couple of threads on the pros and cons of each on this site). I’ve had mine for about 7 years and it’s going stron…
  • I made awful hummus with raw chick peas and then I found the key: Soak them for a couple of days, and rinse them like crazy several times a day. When I do that, the hummus is delicious and digestible. The zucchini hummus is delicious too.
  • I would definitely dehydrate them. Toss them in lemon juice first.
  • I’ve sprouted buckwheat (one day to make a tiny tail), dehydrated it, and then eaten it with nuts, almond milk, raisins, and fruit. Makes a great cereal.
  • TomsMom, versepie, et. al, I was assuming the grains & legumes would be cooked. Cooked grains are also way more digestible if soaked overnight.
  • If you want to add some cooked food, check out Nourishing Traditions. One of the things she recommends is soaking grains overnight to improve digestibility; and including fermented foods. I would add a variety of whole grains and legumes – barley, s…
  • I grab a date or two and my sweet tooth is satisfied.
