  • Well, not so much the grocery store for me, but my college cafeteria. While students load up on a tray with pasta, pizza, and other stuff, I drop like 6 bananas at the counter to pay for my meal. And almost every time (it never fails) the cashier gi…
  • I had this same problem. I couldn't eat food at vegan parties cause everything was cooked, and the one time I went to a raw restaurant, everything had salt and agave in it (these things I don't eat). So, I ended up getting a gross casserole thingie …
  • Wow, that is a bummer. My dorms are so great because we have like 3 kitchens and one right across from my room (which is hardly used except by me). We are allowed dehydrators, blenders, food processors, etc. No hot plates though, but that doesn’t bo…

  • Mine always smells nice and yeasty sweet. Kind of reminds me of the nutritional yeast smell. Okay, so, here’s what I do: 1) Pour about a cup of brown rice into a sprouting jar. 2) Rinse with clean water. Then pour fresh water back in about 3 times a…
  • Hey, you know, if you want that poi/taro taste, blend cashews with rejuvelac water (recipe on this site) and let it sit for a while in the fridge and eventually you will get this sweet but tangy kind of taste that really tastes like poi to me. That …
  • Omigosh! It sounds like I wrote everything you said! I know exactly where you’re coming from. I’ve been on and off raw for 5 months. Now, it’s my second week totally raw (without breaking) just like you, and yeah…I’m always hungry. So, I figured I w…
  • Hey MellieVeggie! Haha, you know that rawsagna picture is not truly raw. When I first went “raw”, I just threw together a bunch of ingredients and I don’t really remember what I did. Well, if you’d like to use the semi-raw recipe and maybe spice it …
  • I do have chia seeds, but I don’t know if they’re raw or not. And I don’t know how to listen to my body! That’s the problem! I’m sort of recovering from a malnourished diet, and I can’t tell when I’m full. I saw the raw oats, but it’s so expensive! …
  • Hey guys! Check out this website. It has a list of vegan options at restaurants and fast food places. Of course a lot of it is cooked, but there are raw options too! http://www.veganeatingout.com/
  • Woo hoo! I signed! Thanks spider!
  • I’m having issues with raw too. It’s weird though. Every time I get fed up and start eating cooked food, I just come back to raw…I forget the problems and look forward to it. Then, like a day or two in, I remember why I left in the first place. Spen…
  • How do you age your own cheese? Do you leave it in the fridge? Cause I tried to leave it out for a couple days (in a container) but it got moldy. Are you supposed to place it in a container in the fridge? Or a cheesecloth in the fridge? Or a cheesec…

  • I’ve tried this. It was decent, but I found it way too salty and every time I ate it, I started sweating for some reason. I paid $15 for 1 aged cashew cheese, and it came in the mail in this huge box, and I was so excited. I searched through the box…

  • Oh yeah, I know exactly what you are talking about. The first time I bought oat groats, I soaked them overnight and ate them in the morning, and they were God awful! They burned my throat and had a sickening, musty, old, taste. YUCK! Well, for a whi…

  • This is an interesting topic. Nothing has happened much at work. I bought a bunch of bananas for lunch and offered one to my coworker who accepted and didn't question why I was eating like a gazillion. Our custodian will pass by and offer us cookies…

  • Thanks for all the advice! RawKidChef-I don’t really like the taste of algae and I have tried to eat mainly fruits and vegetables, but with only starving results. I am on a budget as well, a poor college student who can not afford to spend all her m…
  • Hey, I think I have a grocery list figured out! Well, by now, no one will even see this thread, but hopefully it will pop up somewhere. So…here’s what I have: Weekly Raw Grocery List for One Person About $50 a week ALL ORGANIC!!! 25 bananas 1 lemon …
  • The rest of my skin is regular white-colored. And no, no black poop for me. Maybe I’ve always been orange on my hands, because I feel fine!

  • Jamba Juice doesn’t use Splenda! Or at least the one that I used to work at doesn’t. All their juices are concentrated and all their fruit is not fresh, but blanched and frozen. The only thing that is raw is the fresh-squeezed orange juice, wheatgra…
  • Oh my God! Thank you all so much! You’ve really helped. I thought I was the only lunatic. So, this week I am much much better. I am now making simple meals that take less than 1/2 an hour of preparation, as opposed to my 1-2 hours. I usually stick t…
  • Well, I used to hang out with this group of people. We were all close, good friends. They knew me as the gregarious midnight-ice cream seeker, pizza face-stuffer, and junk food addict. Then, I became a raw vegan and slowly, they started treating me …
  • Okay, I feel so much better after reading everyone’s answers. I have actually calculated that I need about 6 cups of water, according to the half-your-weight rule. So I have cut back and feel much better. I actually am not glued to my water bottle a…
  • Woo! Now that I’m home for the summer and mom’s buying tons of groceries and dad’s bringing home crops growing around our farm, and there are like a million good health food stores, here’s what’s in my kitchen: Cocoa powder, carob powder Raw almond,…
  • Omigod! I’m so jealous of everyone! I really wish I wasn’t broke so that I could have more groceries. The lists are amazing! Next year, I have a new meal plan that’ll save me tons of money and man, I can not wait to splurge!
  • Many raw foodists are having issues with appetite, hunger, and fullness. They say they often feel hungry and full at the same time or that they’ve finished a meal of greens and suddenly were struck with the urge to eat a whole pack of dates, or in y…
  • You know what I think? I think a good guide to tell if your fruits & veggies are still nutritious with their enzymes intact is to compare the color of frozen with fresh. If the colors match, they both have the same amount of nutrients. I find th…
  • I actually drink tons of water 9-10 cups per day and I have had these symptoms on and off for like 2 weeks now. Maybe someone will spot a problem in my diet if I list what I ate. Yesterday, for breakfast, I had a red apple, 1/2 cup oat groats with a…

  • Well, we need more information on you. What’s your age, height, and weight? This website will give you an estimate: http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calcul…
  • I always wanted to get into this too. I heard about some man who is going to live on wild food for like a year or so…just collecting wild mushrooms, berries, nuts, and even…roadkill. Yeah, that part, kinda not so cool. I live on a farm, and it never…
  • I’m not even completely raw, but I have missed my period…for quite some time. Kind of worried…kind of elated. Almost 5 months and nothing! I’m going to visit the docotor in a month, and instead of telling me that my body is deprived of nutrients and…
