  • I would hate making smoothies in a food processor, they are so hard to clean. I have a VItaMix blender, and LOVE it. Before that I used a Cusinart blender, and they difference in the two is night and day. A good blender is definitely worth the inves…

  • Bump, hey peeps just thought I would bump this up to the surface. Fund raising is going a little slower than I expected. Please take a moment to check out or project. Everybody who donates at least $5 gets a free energy bar!  
  • No, that is why we are soliciting "donations" for our startup funding. But each giving level does receive a gift. Thanks. My business partner and I are both very excited about the venture.
  • Lucky vitamin is my favorite place, although lately they seem to be out of a few things I normally get, such as raw hemp seed protein, but you can't bet there prices. A lot of them are close to wholesale.
  • The only time I ever have this happen is when I am using a heavy amount of fresh greens and water as the base. Doesn't happen when I use a greens powder. I think it has to do with the break down of the cell wall in the greens. Do you happen to have …

  • sweet... that many bananas in one day is overload. too much sugar can lead to adrenal failure. bananas are one of the highest sugar fruits there is. I used to eat A LOT of them, but have recently learned that you should watch the amount of fruit you…
  • This is why I am not 100% raw. I have friends who first introduced me to raw foods that were 100% raw vegan, but eventually gave it up because the were ostracized by friends. They didn't get invited to social events because people didn't know how to…

  • Austin is a great city to be raw in! I'm actually about to move there an being my raw food snack company startup!
  • You may not like my advice, but don't kick yourself over this. There is more to life than food. I merely eat a high raw diet and am content with that. You don't HAVE to be 100% raw. If you enjoy a cookie now and then or a cooked meal then go for it.…

  • What are you using to make them? A juicer or a blender? I have had good and bad results with my Vitamix. Sometimes it comes out creamier than other times. I haven't quite figured it out either, but I do know if you are using something other than a V…

  • Last year I brought a big salad to share with everybody. My father actually got made at my for "bringing my own food", but yet it was for the whole family. I would suggest making a tasty desert too, so you can show them how awesome raw foods can rea…

  • I have been on a high-raw (meat free) diet for over a year now and have had blood tests done twice, one fairly recently and both times all my levels were excellent, even protein and calcium. I do however have cheese sometimes but of course not much …
  • missemy, if you are new to raw your symptoms could be detox. I was very foggy headed for several weeks, if not months. It seemed like it lasted forever. My body was pretty toxic though. Hope you start feeling better soon.
  • I was going to say the same, low BP. I'm wondering if I might have it too, I'm very active so have a low resting pulse, and every time I go to the doc I have a good BP, but recently have started having tingling sensations in my hands and fee. I hear…
  • medjool are the only ones we can get around here. never even seen another type of date. I love the medjool though, I'm perfectly happy with them.

  • Are you sure they discontinued it? I recently bought some.
  • Get the 9 tray. You won't regret it. I'm single and the only one in my house that uses the thing. I occasionally have ALL 9 trays full, or at least 9 spaces, sometimes drying things that take up more than one level. Every time I have that puppy full…

  • I've made one that uses oak grouts, raisins and some other ingredients. I will have to try and find the recipe for you and post it. All I know is I remember it being VERY good. Could hardly believe the cookies were raw.
  • Oh, and one more thing. Only time I have gotten a "funny" feeling after eating something that was questionably bad was avocado. It had been on a salad for a dressing so I couldn't really tell how much the color had turned. Now if I make an avocado b…

  • Belle I bring a salad to work with me every day and don't really have any problems, I make my salads the night before since I make a smoothie in the morning for breakfast. Your best option is to make the salad and put it in one container and use ano…

  • Ditch the multi-vitamin :) Do you think you really need it? I was taking a lot of supplements for a while thinking I needed them, but after reading Michael Pollen's books I realized I was likely getting everything I need and gave up everything excep…

  • I consume 2 bananas a day minimum. Usually I have at least four, if not more. 1 in smoothie 1 consumed outside the smoothie, alone or with cereal 1 mid morning snack 1 mid afternoon snack Sometimes I have an evening smoothie that will usually have a…

  • I can't wait to read this thread. I don't have kids yet, but know of a couple that doesn't vaccinate their kids (not vegan though). But I recently heard something on NPR about new vaccinations for middle school kids and how the vaccines are required…
  • Tropical Biscotti http://www.rawmazing.com/?p=355 (orange zest is grated up orange peel)
  • I do this quite a bit, but they really only keep good for about a day. I usually pack two, keeping them in a cooler. The one on the second day tastes a little off, but I always finish them off and have no problems. It could also be that the ice melt…
  • Shell off for both. Same goes for sprouting them.
  • Hmmm, these all sound pretty good. They are really large squash. Kind of pear shaped, but they have some curve to them. I still have them sitting around too, so hopefully they are still good. I just randomly remembered today I posted this. I've made…
  • p.s. trouble, how the heck are you spending $25 a week? I can't even get away without spending at least $50-75, most of the time it's closer to $100, and I even still eat out on occasion. I meal of fruit and a LaraBar alone will cost me $6 and I con…
  • I'm starting to realize that I really don't think I need as many supplements as I thought. I have stated eliminating a lot of what I had been taking, realizing that I am eating extremely healthy now and I am getting just about everything I need. Abo…
  • Although I never considered myself a "smoker" I did have a VERY STRONG mental addiction to it. I smoked about a pack of cloves a week. Sometimes more. I pretty much quit cold turkey then allowed myself one on occasion with friends and then made a co…
