  • Honestly, I think it's just not eating enough and not working out enough - though I don't know your exact situation, I could be dead wrong. Most people seem to eat very little. I work at a very physical job right now and at first it was very hard- a…
  • Oh I don’t think she meant you should pick 13 of the best greens to rotate between. The idea is that you shouldn’t have the same green every day, you have to rotate between them. Anything you can get will be just fine. And learn about the wild edibl…
  • 1. Greens. 2. Frozen bananas… Or maybe coconut butter 3. Dates, young coconuts, avocados, greens, celery, tomatoes.
  • If you really have to work so hard at making it edible, is it really worth it? I mean, the point of raw isn’t the process things in a different way that doesn’t involve heat, the idea is that you eat things in their natural form. And really, it’s ju…
  • Hey, sorry, I didn’t mean to like ‘tease’, I was going to go into details on how we feed our cats. Our cats eat chicken wings that we chop up (with the bone) and liver, and we mix that we a raw egg and some nutritional yeast. The nutritional yeast i…
  • You do mean raw meat, right? My cats are on a raw meat diet, I can tell you it isn’t very simple and not easy to transition, especially with an old cat that might be ‘set in its ways’.
  • If you’re afraid of them getting the order wrong and sneaking things on the salad that would bother you- like cheese or dressings or croutons, a good way to prevent that would be to warn them of food allergies. They’re VERY cautious with these thing…
  • You know, I tried for over a year not very successfully, until recently. I started working at a labor intensive job and I eat fruit all day long for fuel, plus a big green smoothie. I wake up very early and usually just have a green juice for breakf…

  • Just a note on the 'hybrid fruit' thing- most fruit today is hybrid. Oranges are hybrid. Grapefruit. Avocados. Original fruit is a much better idea- but tough to maintain. And I find that eating a lot of bananas makes me feel unbalanced, and frozen …
  • ‘Flat stomach and a body like a model’? Are you serious?
  • I don’t follow the ‘rules’ necessarily, but as my diet slowly became simpler I also felt like having less combinations, and feel off as a result of silly ones. Nuts and sweet fruit, while they do taste good together, make me feel ‘yeasty’ and don’t …
  • I eat raw fish when I get a chance to. Not too often. I like it. It makes me feel stronger and it digests very well. At first I was scared to try it so I made ceviche, and soon realized I like the taste of the parts that didn’t ‘cook’ better- so now…
  • Ok, I actually had a conversation about this with a friend recently, and have a few insights. I was a blond kid too, and my hair got darker when I was around 7 and now it’s brownish. I grew up in Israel, where- surprise surprise- there are hardly an…
  • You know, when I was visiting family the last few months, I got in to this habit badly myself. It peaked when I visited my cousin and we make raw chocolate… Mixed with hash! Sounds like such a contradiction! During this experience (which was just to…
  • Not weird at all. I heard many claims that meat eaters require a lot more B-12. There are soooo many theories on the subject though. I personally was VERY deficient when I was 16 and a vegetarian, eating small amounts of dairy and eggs- I don’t thin…

  • Flow with it. It’s not a good idea to have a staple anyway. You’re better off having a variety. And really, bananas are a pretty empty food- aside from calories and potassium I suppose… You are always better opting for as much local as possible. If …
  • 6 hours? I heard it takes only 30 minutes with buckwheat. Usually enough for me…
  • Bay leaves. Spread them sparsely on areas you see ants coming from, especially around cracks in windows and counters. Takes about a day but they just leave. I guess they don’t like the smell?
  • Every time I eat watermelon I end up eating a bit too much and get a horrible stomach ache. One time I made watermelon juice, can’t remember howmuch, I think I had about a quart (on an empty stomach) and I ended up throwing it all up! Just don’t hav…
  • I’ve known a lot of teenage boys to have that problem…
  • When I got here for a visit in the winter I started eating TONNES of dried turkish figs. They’re sooo good… After a few weeks I noticed I cannot tolerate them at all, meaning I get abdominal upsets that you wouldn’t believe. Let’s not get into detai…
    in Dried Fruit Comment by Morning_theft
  • Half blended salad- lettuce, avocado, tomatos, bell peppers, green onions, basil… Whatever I have and in the mood for, in the food processor, pulsed a bit until nicely mushed (not blended) and then add a little lemon juice, maybe sea salt and a litt…

  • I typically use honey when making raw chocolate, and have had the same problem with honey that was most likely heated and in liquid form. Strange, no? Well the best solution I came to so far was to not use the oil (coconut or cacao) liquidize comple…
  • Water :c) I use a body brush and water on my body, then usually rub coconut oil all over. Mostly water with a very occasional ACV rinse on my hair. Baking soda and sea salt or tooth soap on my teeth. Water and coconut oil on my face.
  • Where did you find cacao butter in a jar? Are you sure you’re not confusing it with coconut butter? Cacao butter I normally buy for about $20 or less per pound, which isn’t so bad. I’m not sure where you look so it’s hard for me to say. Generally sp…
  • Before- umm… it kept changing… peanut butter on whole wheat bread, and then when I started being a health food junkie- steamed millet with olive oil and soy sauce (yes, really, I went nuts for it) After- smoothies! I could probably live my whole lif…
  • If it feels good, don’t argue with it… Some people feel nuts and seeds are a little hard to digest and make them feel sluggish. If you’re feeling fine, there’s no problem. I would still suggest you start eating a lot more greens, only the ones you l…
  • As a fellow ‘shows her goodies to strangers with sketchbooks’ I must first give you thumbs up for being raw and glowing. I didn’t dare do this until I started raw, I think the change to a crazy happy person made me need to show it off or something. …
  • Also I would like to point out that when juicing, if you’re only juicing fruit you need to watch the impact on your blood sugar… When there’s no fiber the sugar absorbs even faster. I know I can’t handle straight orange juice on its own unless I’ve …
  • Oh man, I got the exact same thing… When it finally arrived in the mail I was like ‘yay… but… not now’ and ended up not using it for a while. But eventually you’ll be jonsing for something you need it for, or have some leftover nutpulp you need to d…
