  • I thought I’d give an all of you an update and say that I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. One of the symptoms of that is “yellowing of the skin due to impaired conversion of beta-carotene to vitamin A”, so that explains the orangeness.
  • I actually applied there today! I haven’t actually had anything there (minus some samples at VivaFest months ago) but I’m happy there is a 100% raw place in town now.
  • At least one a day. I love freezing them then whipping them up to make banana ice cream. The texture is dead on.
  • Yeah, it’s true that frugivorous apes do consume insects which would provide them with B-12. I saw a David Wolfe video where he said he eats ants sometimes to get it. I’ve heard a lot of conflicting views on this matter but if it worries you, and yo…

  • before: cheese, peanut butter after: avocado, durian I guess I just love fat.
  • I’m a Virgo with moon in Libra and a Cancer ascendant.
  • One step at a time is better if you want the detox to be less intense. I’m an “extreme” person too, but I’m slowing learning that the body really isn’t an all-or-nothing thing. It appreciates all the little health improvements we make. Ooh, and have…
  • I’ve never been persistent enough to do it regularly, so I don’t know if it really works at removing toxins. I can say that my teeth look super clean afterwards.
  • If eating raw chocolate keeps you from feeling deprived eating this diet, then go for it! Knowing I can make raw chocolate desserts keeps me from going out and buying a Mars bar. Might I recommend this chocolate mousse: http://goneraw.com/recipes/59…
  • 4/20 threw me off track a bit as well. I ate brownies and um, quite a bit of cooked food after that. I’ve been drinking loads of vegetable juice since so I feel less wretched. It was interesting how anticlimactic the taste of all those cooked foods …
  • I live in Victoria and lately I’ve been eyeing our abundance of dandelions (or their leaves, more accurately) as a green smoothie addition.
  • b: durian mango pudding l: 2 mangos + small box strawberries s: another small of strawberries + herb tea d: big herb salad with lots of alfalfa sprouts, tomato, and half an avo mushed in with pepper and lime dessert was avocado chocolate pudding
  • I mush half an avocado mixed with lime juice and pepper into almost every salad I eat. I also love making avocado chocolate pudding. And guacamole! Oh, the guacamole… I hear mango and avocado are sublime together, but every time I have either I eat …

  • I too have decided to quit smoking marijuana. I’ve been seriously depressed in the past but a raw diet and yoga have changed that. Lately my lungs have been aching and I don’t feel I need it to make me happy, because I already am. I totes think it s…
  • mmmorgans – I have indeed! The marinated mushrooms with avocado is good. I noticed there is a living food juice bar called Cafe Bliss opening up next door. It’ll be like Victoria’s raw vegan epicenter, in conjunction with the durians in Chinatown on…

  • mmmorgans – I’m in Victoria. BC is a pretty great place to be raw, and in general actually.
