  • Lol, so for a change I read through all the posts before commenting. Thryoid can be an iissue, I went back to very hea;thy eating but off 2 meds so I feel better mentailly but I am suffering with weight. I'm back to eating bare minimum if I want to …
  • For me, when I first got into eating a more natural diet it wasn't so hard. I actually first went to eating local and cutting out processed foods. Then I found a friends cafe and met people more into the 'raw' lifestyle but after a few weeks found t…
    in can i be raw? Comment by blueyz
  • For me, this time of year it is cranberries and pomegranates. I love them both, although one takes a little more work than the other to get to all the goodness inside.
  • I DO love some of the local goat cheese I find, however it is pasteurized but delicious and otherwise not much processed. I can buy raw goats milk from the same farm when I am lucky(raw dairy being legal in most of CT). I find more raw sheep or cow …

  • It could be what you are eating, especially if you eat salty foods(not intentional but it happens) or herbs!! If the HBP has been long occuring it can take more than a few days to get it down to a normal level, OH and if the weather near you is anyw…
  • If you want seasonal, I would go for a tomato/basil soup (you can add in squash for bulk). Not sure what your tastes run, but you could also look into a cucumber dill soup(avocado for creaminess) How is the Master Cleanse going for you?
  • Outside of the cherries are you eating anything different? I've had major bloating problems over the years and finally figured at least 1/2 is food triggered. For me it is complex carbs, rice is as bad as pasta so it's not a gluten thing, and also n…
  • Lol, well if lower temp means we live longer I am all set. I have ALWAYS have lower body temp(combo of my genetics and hypothyroid), heck if I hit 98 I consider that a temp for me unless it is summer when I'm 96-97ave.

  • It is funny I have now seen this article posted on 3 different websites I check out, it seems MANY people are excited about this list. I already saved it to my favorites and planning to try one of the cucumber salads tonight.
  • I"m not crazy about raw mushrooms, well unless they have been marinated but plain they do nothing for me. I so agree on jicama, and funny it is something I wouldn't even imagine cooking at all. It is so nice and crisp, I also have found I like chayo…
  • I do not know specifically but would suggest 1) Green smoothies 2) Looking into anti-bacterial foods AND immune systems boosting foods to create recipes from If she has insurance I would also refer her to a naturopath if there is one in her area, ma…

  • I haven't (my GI and tree nuts don't get along too well) but if nuts are your only real source of fat or other minerals that could be why your body is craving them. Are there specific nuts you crave? Do you think it's the fat? If so try adding more …

  • I am not 811 so that is not a concern, I more or less eat not according to what my body can handle (and I'm not raw vegan, about 70% raw though) I wanted it mainly for green smoothies and soups, I played with the one I borrowed for a few days and it…
  • I don't have any romaine but have lots of spinach(farm fresh even) to use. It is mild so hoping that should work too! I LOVE ginger and it works well with tropical fruits.
  • Thanks pixx, if I do buy one I will likely try to make some seed butters so anything like that is fine if I can change out the nuts for seeds. Outside of pine nuts(I know, really seeds) it just seems tree nuts are on my food sensitivity list! I LOVE…
  • This changes for me depending on the season. At the moment it is either seasonal berries, so much flavor it only takes a few to satisfy taste cravings, OR frozen grapes. We ate these as kids and I still love them in the summer. If you can get small …

  • It may not be raw, but I know it is one of the few seeds I can eat and my body won't react badly to. I have not seen documentation on the not viable and hybridized part, can you provide that so I can look at it??
  • Thanks Nicole, I also have thryoid issues(never given an exact name for it but it basically burned out when I was 2 years old) so interesting on the watermelon. I can't often eat much at a time, wonder if that is my own bodies way of dealing. I do h…
  • I have been hypothyroid since I was a kid and went through all the ups and downs before reallty figuring out what was going on for myself(not easy if can't dig out of the depression stage, can be totally thryoid even if 'blood levels' look OK). My f…

  • I just bought myself a new bike(Fuji Crosstown) this spring with my tax return $$. I had not been on a bike for 5 years at all (and then it was for 2 years after about 7 never riding). Your legs will take some reconditioning and I wouldn't tackle an…
  • I have had on and off cravings for cheese in the past too, also weird enough to wonder what was going(and while I agree with calorie idea that was NOT my issue). What I have watched out when I do give in to cravings is what sort of cheese I just MUS…

  • I find for me when I get bad leg(or toe, which are the worst) cramps it is something I am missing. Since you are eating bananas I would guess potassium isn't the issue, which leaves magnesium or sodium. Usually magnesium for me(if sodium then natura…
    in Leg Cramps Comment by blueyz
  • Iodine maybe or sodium? I guess it depends on what sort of seafood you are craving since perhaps there is a difference in nutritional needs(I do still eat some fish, but rarely and all local sourced or good source). I find there is a difference in w…

  • Ooh, more things for me to go check out and possible purchase (lol, I have seen these in past but forgot about them so thanks for posting)
  • What if you switched to liquid /smoothies feast instead? You can get in much more protein and they fill you up more, so you won't have to drink as much and perhaps won't be turned off as easily on them.
    in Juice Feast Comment by blueyz
  • I would be interested in going ONLY if I could plan in advance and really know what is going on. That is when school starts back up again so if I'm taking a few hours to drive to DC and stay it needs to be REALLY worth it!!
  • I have had similar cravings, but lately more for avocado or olives(I NEED to stay away from Olive bars somedays). I might crave nuts, if I hadn't figure out I think I have a major food sensitivity to them(stinks for raw recipes!!) so that craving is…
    in Nut cravings Comment by blueyz
  • I agree with the seeds, I do MUCH better on them and find I don't eat as many since I usually eat plain and not processed into anything. I love Hemp seeds, but chia,pumkin, sunflower and pine nuts are also great. In fact the GI reactions I've had th…

  • You seem to be eating foods with fat, but maybe not enough other things to round it off?? Not sure...my first instinct with something like that is to have hormones checked(including thryoids, adrenals outside simple reproductive hormones) because th…
  • I would find out if there is some other underlying cause. I know for me when my thryoid or adrenals are off the first thing to go now is focus, moods and ability to get stuff done. Vit D has also made a difference, but for me keeping up with sugar b…
