  • I don't know anything about the rotting greens, but actually, Gabriel Cousens & others now say that spirulina is NOT a good way to get B12 - I think they say it's not the right form of B12 for our bodies to absorb or something. Dr. Cousens recom…
  • I haven't ever seen any "proof" that eggs or fish are "bad for you". I've read a lot of the China Study, but I have also heard that he twisted things a bit (who knows?), and there are at least as many or more sources that suggest that including some…
  • I totally understand the taste thing - I HATED all the raw food I tried in the beginning. Then I realized that nothing had salt - blech! Another thing I had a hard time with was that the recipes in the books I bought used little or no fat. I started…
  • Sunscreen makes it so you can't make vit. D from the sunlight.

  • dafodil - that's really interesting that it helps your depression. I asked at my doctor's office if I could get vitamin D from tanning beds (I get depressed in winter & vit. D deficiency seems to be the culprit), and the nurse told me no - that …

  • I'm glad you asked! I am type 1, so I don't know how it would be different for her, but I'll just share my experience with this one: I thought I had to go raw all at once (because I was addicted to junk food, so I would eat 100% raw or 90% junk), an…
  • "Where do high raw eaters get their carbs, not from veggies, but from fruits, that's your main energy source." I get my carbs from: fruits, sprouted legumes, fresh raw corn & peas, sprouted grains (wheat, barley, buckwheat...) I get lots of calo…
  • I wasn't able to stick with Phase 1 very long - only about 3 weeks. I'm very glad to hear that you're finding success with it! I think part of the problem I had is that I wasn't getting enough calories, and the other part was probably due to boredom…
  • Why does it need to be green? It should still taste like chocolate mint without the green powder. ;)
  • Dehydrating extra mung bean sprouts is a GREAT idea! I never thought of it. Thanks for the idea, chiffon. :) Winona - Since veggies - especially greens - are so full of water, dehydrating your own veggies may turn out to be even more expensive than …
  • For more nutrients? Greens! Of course, other things will be helpful/necessary, too, but if you can add in some greens, you'll be making a big jump in the right direction. Go make that chocolate-mint thingy Joyce mentioned on the other thread, and us…
  • Brazil nuts do leave a slight grit, but not as much as almonds.
  • daniefon - what a great way to hide your greens! Maybe I'll have to make my son some spinach fudge. :D
  • Bummer! I can get them here for $6 per pound, and that's higher than they used to be when I ate them a lot.
  • I like Brazil nuts, too. I also just remembered that www.sunfood.com now offers a raw protein powder, but I have no idea of the price. Bee pollen has a VERY strong taste - I can't stand more than a tiny amount in anything. I can't imagine using it a…
  • If he can handle the taste of cashews, they're a complete protein (have all the amino acids we need) & blend up creamy in drinks. They're pretty mild in flavor, especially when you mix other stuff in. Add some berries & an extra banana or tw…
  • aviatrix79 - I think what I remember Kandace saying is that they know that not everyone on here is 100% raw, and that not everyone is vegan, but that this site is to discuss the part of your life that is raw & vegan. For that reason, I don't pro…
  • Some people eat a certain way because it's what makes them healthiest. Just because it may not be the same thing that makes you healthiest doesn't mean that person is "saying something is okay when they know it's not good" or "rationalizing discorda…
  • I'm sorry. I realize now that this IS a site for vegans. I did not mean to offend anyone!
  • Hahaha! Yes! I forgot to mention that I already had done quite a bit of studying about nutrition, and that I spent the first few weeks praying constantly for God to help me want what was good for me! :)
  • FYI: There are a lot more than "2 schools of thought" in the raw community. :) After trying many different "book diets" over the years, I started my current path 3 years + 9 months ago. I wasn't researching the raw diet or following someone else's r…
  • I've read things like this before, too. I used to get mad, but it doesn't really bother me now. It may be that she feels very healthy the way she eats now & sees no reason for change. As far as whether raw is a "good" way of life or not, some of…
  • Is he type 2, then? I'm type 1 & I have had experiences of much lower blood sugar levels, but they have never lasted more than about a week. I'm glad he's figuring out something that works for him! Even though I don't follow or necessarily agree…
  • I like protein in the morning, so I'll usually have a savory entree or a huge salad with avocado & maybe hemp seeds or sunflower seed "cheese" on top. If I have anything sweet, it's usually a nut-based shake or dessert.
  • I did a blog post about how to start: www.angiesrawkitchen.blogspot.com - look up the one titled "Where to Start?" I would say, though, that starting to eat raw foods isn't really any more complicated than taking a bite. Seriously, it's not that har…
  • I started one recently, too
    in My new blog! Comment by angie207
  • I may be an exception; I realize that most healthy people do not eat like I do, but I THRIVE on my diet, which is at least 40% fat. I feel a million times better eating raw with lots of nuts, seeds & avocados (& yes, even oil!) than I feel e…
  • rawcanadian - I brought up the horse & chicken examples merely to illustrate that animals of the same species don't all eat the exact same things as each other even with the same choices available. It had nothing to do with fat. lauraj - I respe…
  • rawcanadian - A sick horse will seek out & eat healing herbs (comfrey) if it is available, instead of just eating the grass the other horses are eating. A healthy horse doesn't focus on comfrey (I don't know if they EVER eat it if they're not si…
  • I agree with Winona - people are different. I'm grateful for all the varying opinions & books out there, because they give me IDEAS of things to TRY. The only thing that works for me is to do what works for me. ;)
