  • Avocado, banana, cacao, agave nectar, dash of seasalt. Chocoate pudding! Blend all ingredients with enough water to move it. This has the taste and texture of Jell-O pudding (without the chemicals).

  • It sounds like thyroid problems. I would not eat those foods suggested that contain goitrogens (strawberries, kale, flaxseeds and many more not listed here) and increase iodine either by supplementation or by eating seaweed or algae (particularly ke…
  • Apples and lemons also contain acetic acid. The type that you use in a lab differs from that found in nature. I use apple cider vinegar in salad dressings and I take a teaspoonful in water following colloidal iodine (which I take for hypothyroid). A…
  • I think you'd like it. It ia a rich source of protein and makes gel similar to flaxseed. It make a good binder in dehydrated cookies, bread and crackers. It thickens salad dressings and makes a good pudding. It's very versatile as a food and it work…
  • Have your thyroid checked. You describe hypothyroid symptoms (in the title). If that's your issue then there are some foods that wll hurt you if eaten raw, some that are worse for you if cooked and some that are bad for you either way. All of those …
  • I was member 123 but I couldn't sign in because the login site said that the name was already taken. Yeah! By me! Zin, I tried Doug Graham's 80/10/10 diet but it was too much sugar (fruit) and not enough fat for regrowing/repairing myelin. It was al…
  • Yes, I'm familiar with the dangers of fluoride. I drink well water because I live in a small unincorporated town where city water is not an option, thank goodness. Our well is tested for germs and contaminates every month. I'm glad that you are maki…
  • I don't eat dairy. I don't eat processed foods. I don't eat wheat or anything containing gluten or gliadin and I don't eat corn or potatoes. I still try to combine foods correctly. I just stopped eating raw foods with goitrogens (cruciferous vegetab…
  • I was a raw vegan for almost 5 years and I developed hypothyroidism. I'm a lacto-vegitarian now, on a trial basis, and I'm doing better. There are food toxins in raw food that, if not prepared correctly (soaking, sprouting, fermenting, cooking), can…
  • Thank you. I haven't been posting but I have kept up with the recipes. The group has really changed, there are lots of new members and lots of older ones aren't posting regularly. It's good to see that you're still here.
  • I have hypothyhroid symptoms. My TH4 was tested and it came back within range. I think there is a problem with the TH4 making T3. I stopped eating foods with goitrogens (iodine blockers), started taking colloidal iodine and continue to eat brown sea…
  • This is a good site about kombucha: http://www.happyherbalist.com/analysis_of_kombucha.htm
  • I eat it occasionally and the magnesium that cacao contains has positive effects on me if I don't eat it continually. It over-stimulates the thyroid and causes me to be weak if i eat it several days in a row. It contains theobromine and caffeine, tw…
  • I just use raw food, kombucha tea, some herbs as seasoning, plenty of rest, exercise and water. I have fasted several times and I have done lots of cleanses. I am stricty non-allopathic and I take very few supplements anymore. Omega 3 is supposed to…
  • Most commercial spices are not raw (they’re irradiated) and many are sprayed with chemicals. You can buy organic spices from www.frontiercoop.com
  • I have used Nutiva Hemp Protein Powder. Now I just eat the whole shelled seeds. Protein powder makes my smoothies too gritty, floury tasting. The seeds make a smoother consistancy.

  • I totally agree. If it comes from a book it generally has copyrights and shouldn’t be plagerized.
  • Different strokes… I can’t eat tomatoes or other nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant), peppers don’t bother me though. I think people have different food sensitivities. There are some vegetables that contain large amounts of cellulose (legumes…
  • Don’t use PAM! If you have to, wipe coconut oil on the Teflex. I had the same problem once with the banana pancake recipe that I posted. The rounds would not peel off until I dried them longer. I started making them into whole sheets, cutting them l…

  • I made some good crackers last night/today with left-over spaghetti sauce and sprouted sunflower seeds. I didn’t measure, but I used more seeds than sauce and added water to cover. I poured the mix on a Teflex sheet and cut the crackers into pieces …
  • I like my OsterFusion blender. It has a two directional blade, a glass jar and all metal drive. I broke mine recently and the company (Oster) sent a new one, no charge. I bought it online from JC Penny for $79.00 last year. It blends smoothly. I use…
  • I’m thinking that almond meal (from almond milk) mixed with a small amount of ground flax to bind and a splash of water spread on Teflex sheet and dehydrated until crisp, then break up and add a little coconut or olive oil and salt and it might be c…
  • Simplyraw, he spends more time in this book talking about the deletarious effects of meat than he spends talking about the benefits of produce, but the subject of veganism does come up. He doesn’t go into great detail about his diet. He does talk ab…
  • In that case Paxton, you can still vote for Ron Paul who is a Libertarian running as a Republican! I think we need a new party, the Revolutionary party! Simplyraw, you would like the book that I just read by Howard Lyman, “Mad Cowboy” Plain Truth fr…
  • Dr.Paul wasn’t nominated as the Rep. candidate, but he IS still running for president. You can still vote for him Paxton. I’m going to write his name on the ballot if we don’t have to vote with the Diebold or AccuVote systems. Kevin, politics and wh…
  • A little vague?! I’m a Ron Paul supporter!
  • Most lawyers ARE charismatic. So was Clinton (who was impeached and why anyone would consider voting for his wife is unbelievable), so is Bush. That isn’t enough to get my vote. I’m voting for Ron Paul even though he isn’t a candidate, he’s still ca…
  • I love chia pudding! I add coconut, chia seeds, agave nectar, vanilla and a dash of seasalt to almond milk. It is coco-chia pudding. Raisins and other things can be added as well. I got the original recipe on this site for Indian”rice” pudding, by R…

  • badnews, my sheep are made of cauliflower and the significance is that I’m one of the flock of rawfoodists. I asked the question to the previous posters because I was curious about how they see the world. No, you will likely be incorrect if you pres…
