  • powerlifer - I have Ulcerative Colitis. I just noticed that I can use a lot of the raw recipes (with adaptation) with the diet I'm on (specific carbohydrate diet) and I just feel healthier eating raw foods. When I first started the SCD I was really …
  • I don't know if this helps but I've heard compresses help and drinking water. When my eye twitches occasionally it means I need to drink water.
  • I had shingles a couple years ago. When I told the urgent care nurse that I thought it might be shingles (my bf had had them several years before and knew the symptoms) she said that that was an "old person's disease." The doc came in and told me I …

  • I have to agree with previous posters, I loved Ani Pyo's book and Raw Food for 1 or 2 people as well. I also liked Alive in Five for quick and tasty recipes.
  • Thanks so much evergreen! :)

  • My favorite is from Raw Food Real World though I usually adapted it a little. For example I’ll halve the amount of sweetener because it really doesn’t need it and I use honey because I cannot eat any other kind of sweetener. Also in the recipe if yo…
  • I know that when I make “candied walnuts” with honey the honey stays sticky. It seems like honey on it’s own isn’t able to dehydrate in the traditional way but I’d certainly love to hear if you’re able to find a way to get it in a powdered form! I h…
  • I don’t know if this helps at all (because I don’t know what recipe you used) but I use cashews when I make raw ice cream. They seem to help with it staying softer. I also noticed that if I use extracts other then vanilla that helps too – peppermint…
  • Northern VA/DC metro area. I haven’t been able to find much of a raw scene here but we do have some good farmer’s markets, Asian markets & Co-ops for fresh/organic fruits and veggies.
