  • I agree, Coconut Love, it "would be too difficult to determine the amount to soak to get the desired amount". Unfortunately, I have seen some recipes actually *state* it that way. (I wish I knew which ones, and where, so I could link them here.) I s…
  • Without explanation, it *is* iffy. And, YES, I have seen recipes that specifically stated to soak and drain before measuring. Every time I see nuts listed, I also wonder about that, if they don't explain which they mean. Unfortunately, it really dep…
  • Yes, it will get hard when cold; melts at 76 degrees. I didn't "take" it lke a drug. (I've heard some folks do, though.) I changed all oil used, for coconut oil. At the time I started, I was still cooking frequently. Typically roasted veggies, or st…
  • Not me. I loose weight every time I add it back into my diet. When I was loosing weight & would hit a plateau, coconut oil got it going again every time. I lost close to thirty pounds while eating it daily (over 70 total). Now I'm at a good weig…
  • Speaking of Nama Shoyu... should it be kept in the fridge, or is it shelf stable?? Mine is on the shelf...and I got to wondering about this just last night (it kind of burped when I opened it--- from the fermentation, though, right?). This is the fi…
  • What's normal?? LOL. Kidding. Seriously, there are folks that eat waaay more bananas than that. Take a look at the "what you ate today" thread. http://goneraw.com/forum/what-you-ate-today?page=14#comment-123506

  • You're quite welcome! :~)
  • LaEnsalada~ Look for any place that sells loose leaf medicinal herbs. (What I used was dried and ground, much like spices for the kitchen.) I used to make my own herbal tea mixes, and would buy all sorts of herbs for that; stevia was often added in …
  • Unless the stevia is green (powdered herb) then it is processed! Most stevia these days is *white* (or a clear liquid); They are a processed extract. Edit: A couple decades back, I used to use the green powdered herb stevia, and it was not bitter at…
  • Dehydrated foods will draw fluids out of the body in order to rehydrate. If you eat dehydrated foods, you should drink way more water than usual. Maybe this is what is causing the problem for you two? I haven't a clue about the metallic taste. If it…

  • Depends on where you live. Some places, it is illegal to sell any raw dairy. Crazy? Yes! Try looking here: http://www.realmilk.com/where2.html (it's cow's milk & cheeses AND goat's milk & cheeses) Bear in mind, none of the above is vegan. Bu…

  • I've wondered about those, too! (This post should bump the thread to the front page... hopefully someone knows something!!) EDIT: Ooops, I guess I didn't bump this page! someone beat me! LOL!

  • How about a pate of carrot & zucchini? I've made a dip out of zucchini that would've worked well as a spread. Unfortunately, I don't recall what all else was in it. :(
  • Ahh... Oh well. Good luck with it!
  • Hmmm... any chance the oil pulling is causing you to use neck muscles that are not used to being worked? Could be the cause of the neck trouble? (Not saying anything against the oil pulling-- just that it may take a while for the muscles to get used…
  • Ahhhh, it was very confusing, because generally in net-speak "LOL" means "laugh out loud"- but the post wasn't funny! So I was confused by it. I'm guessing others might be confused by the different meaning, as well. (Point being: it's likely giving …
  • I agree that a good sea salt, or "Jurassic" salt is waaaaaay better than table salt. But- RawTexan said: "I don't add salt to any recipes, my kinesilogist (sp?) said to stay away from all salt for a while.". In that case I would not recommended addi…
  • "and nut milk for dinner" Umm, how much nuts are you consuming? Sounds like a lot of 'em, if it's just nutmylk for dinner? And, daily? I'm agreeing with superfood2 here, (and I am not even 811! lol). I would cut back on the nuts. 811 (aka: 80/10/10)…
  • Lots of greens. A well packed green smoothie will boost my mood any day.
  • I've tried a few times to get one of those (3600) on ebay, to no avail. Got too much for my wallet. I actually wish they still made them in stainless. I wouldn't question saving up for that!! But the plastic (BPA free or not) gives me hesitation so …
  • I think the 3600 is stainless, right? You won't need to replace with a BPA free one, since it isn't plastic; also I don't think the BPA free one will fit a 3600. Myself, I'd prefer the stainless anyway!
  • "I hope I can make this work." You'll do just fine! (and thanks for reminding me, I need to get my butt back over to mine and add something....:)
  • I didn't take it that way-- but I see your point, and I agree!

  • "starvation mode" would depend on the persons size and calorie needs. I do fine on 1300, sometimes even less. This calculator will tell you how many calories you need to sustain, if you stay in bed all day (add more, according to your activity). htt…

  • Grow it! Seeds, and directions: http://www.sproutpeople.com/seed/wheatgrass.html Kit, if you prefer: http://www.sproutpeople.com/seed/kit/wgkit.html And, if you don't have a juicer, here is an inexpensive *manual* one (that works pretty well- I have…

  • Good to know! Thanks for sharing. :~)
  • waterbaby12347~ I've considered the Waring. Mainly because it is glass (or optional stainless steel). My concern was I had read a few reviews online that mentioned that the *bottom* of the blender jar (where the blades come up through) is also glass…
  • Thanks for sharing your experiences, LaEnsalada. Nutbutters really are my big draw for wanting a high power blender. I had wondered if it would be able to. nancyk70~ Hmmm, wow- just when I think, ok, I have my answer....along comes yours... lol. Gee…
  • I'd love to know how the Bamix does for nut butters-- do let us know!! And for those with the Vitamix-- can you make almond butter (or other nut butters), without adding any oil (or anything else)?
  • I am unfamiliar with a Bamix, so I really can't say. But, I do think that if you really want all the other things, go for them! You can always save up again, and get the Vitamix later. :~) By the way- I'm using a $45 Oster blender. What may help you…
