  • Pumpkin/Squash seeds are actually raw and not steamed or anything like about 90% of what is sold in the stores (even if it does say that they are raw).
  • Fermented foods are not raw they're rotten....
  • What else are you eating besides grapes? Grapes are mostly water are you eating other foods with alot of salt/sodium? Sodium helps/causes us to retain water and water weighs alot. Other than that if you weigh yourself everyday you shouldn't have a w…

  • Oh but to answer you question probably banana's because they are more calorie dense, plus I mean I would go broke eating grapes all the time...
  • I don't know what's with the scare or fructose, fructose from fruits in whole form with all the fiber/fat/protein and vitamin/minerals is completely different from the fructose in HFCS. This fruit scare is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard i…
  • If you search around, get to know people, buy the ripe fruit that supermarkets throw away because it doesn't "look" pretty anymore and grow your own things like tomatoes and cucumbers (easily grow them around the house); then you can do 801010 for v…

  • I know its crazy, they throw banana's away when they start to brown on the outside. That's usually what I like to start eating them because the starches in banana's will have broken down and they're easier to digest. Plus they're sweeter!!! And for …
  • You know at $500 ++ how much more better can something get??
  • They gel up when you add water to them so you can make some jello type stuff with them, I need to do some experimenting because I just got some too.
  • Since everyone is throwing quotes around I'll add one of my own. This is from the french Philosopher Pierre-Joseph Proudhon. I were asked to answer the following question: What is slavery ? and I should answer in one word, It is murder, my meaning w…
  • I find that people who are "experts" and in the media are typical your narcissists anyways. I also feel there are alot of people who want to become vegan/vegetarian mainly to lose weight, I think thats total crap vegan/vegetarian is a lifestyle not …
  • People have thought I was weird my whole life so that's not an issue for me.
  • I second the Raw Uncookbook the first section has all the tools that you need and goes over basic foods. Some of the recipes can be difficult/call for a lot of ingredients but if you don't have them you either substitute them of you find out that ov…

  • Also I grew up in Charlottesville, VA and I remember digging up sasafras root and chew on it. It a good spice to add to a chia tea or pumpkin pie since it smells similar to nutmeg so it's good in some dessert type dishes.

  • You can easily forage green onions from your backyard I've never understood why people buy them at the grocery store when they grow like crazy. There's alot of Pine in NC so pine nuts shouldn't be a problem either.

  • I would say I have more energy now eating more raw types of foods. I used to think that I was in my best shape when I was in my early 20's but now my endurance has skyrocketed it's insane. There are a few all vegan athletes out there check out http:…
  • If weight loss is not of utmost importance I would just enjoy what you are eating and give it some time because everyone's body adjusts differently. Question though are you still eating dairy? I remember when I went from vegetarian to vegan a few ye…

  • Check Ani Phyo's youtube site or her dessert book (you don't have to buy it you can just read it at Barnes and Noble), I was watching her site during lunch and she made a chocolate icing for a a raspberry truffle cake. I am guessing that to make thi…

  • I just read this article it's very interesting: http://www.straight.com/article-178511/more-active-means-more-creative But it kind of makes a lot sense, heck even when I was working through some complex differential equation I would usually "get it"…
