  • Dr. Bronner's is Castile soap. You can also try Dr. Woods, which is definitely cheaper.
  • Glad this thread came up. I don't advocate any way of being raw to anyone because as mentioned above, we all must find what is right for us. That said, I continue to be a little shocked by the massive amount of fat used in most of the raw recipe boo…
  • Thank you, Lil Earth Muffin. I also think you have the right attitude, and your decision to stay on the site is a good one. Happy holidays!
  • Tukiville and Ambiguous, I love what you both wrote. Voices of reason! Each person has to figure out what's right for their body; we are not "one size fits all". I've stayed away from this site for quite a while because I've really been turned off b…
  • Charles, Kandace posted a fantastic recipe for whipped parsnips that was a big hit at my house last year. There is also a lovely cranberry sauce recipe on the site that I've served with great success. Matt Amsden has a nice stuffing recipe (tho' nut…

  • Here's mine: raw honey for facial cleanse, coconut oil for moisturizer and for hair after shower (I don't usually use shampoo), and apple cider vinegar when the occasional breakouts occur. It's cheap, natural and it works!
  • I love purple kale in smoothies. I've used it with different fruit combinations and each time the flavor has been wonderful.

  • Carnap, I am no fan of allopathic medicine, however I do recommend you see a doctor just to get a clear diagnosis. Then you can make an informed decision about how to treat it. If possible, try to seek out a gyno versed in holistic health. Good luck…
  • Kandace, I've been off the site for quite a while and had no idea you were pregnant! I can't give you advice re: what food to pack (never had kids), but just wanted to wish you and Ray lots of luck, joy, happiness and great energy in the days ahead.…
  • My MIL very kindly gave me a signed copy of Matthew Kenney's recent book (can't remember the name). It's beautifully produced, however I was truly shocked at how many recipes contained copious amounts of cashews. The recipes were also extremely intr…
  • Thank you, Brenda!
  • Nice to see you all, again--and Happy New Year! Thanks for the comment on my avatar, Meditating. I aspire to his wisdom over the next year (unfortunately, I have a long way to go).
  • I was also wondering what happened to everyone. Since the site changed, there also has been a shift in the community. Perhaps it's just a transition. People do seem to have drifted away, though.
  • I have to second that about oil pulling. When I first read about it, it just sounded ridiculous. However, I recently had my first root canal and not long after had a 25 year old molar excavated followed by a temporary crown. Although there was no de…
  • Thank you, emtpdmom!
  • Although I wrote of some difficulties I was having navigating the new site on another thread, please know how much I appreciate this site and all the work you're putting into it. I have been raw now for 15 months and don't know if I could have done …
  • Wonderful news!!!
  • Kendra, just want to say that I am also extremely proud to have Obama as president. Each day, my husband and I look at each other and say “Is Obama still president elect, or am I dreaming?” This is not just because he is the first black president (w…
    in OBAMA WON!!!!! Comment by Mon46
  • cavsman and aspire, yes, it is still up to us demand real change and not become complacent. This has been 1 of the tenets of Obama’s message, and 1 of the reasons people have responded so deeply to him. It’s about personal responsibility and compass…

  • Tears of joy, tears of relief. I have never seen anything like this in my lifetime and am so glad to alive during this moment in history. TomsMom, I’m also proud of us—something I haven’t felt in a very, very long time. What a day!

  • Thank you, Joyce. You are a voice of reason and I’m with you all the way on this one. And you are absolutely right about how small businesses are taxed. I own my speech pathology practice and am incorporated as a PLLC. It’s a small practice that doe…

  • Rawsiki, one option is Chia seeds. Low in fat, high in protein and lots of bang for your buck financially. Flax seeds are also good, though chia is definitely more filling. Everybody’s different, so I would never tell you how much fat you should hav…
    in SICK OF EATING FAT! Comment by Mon46
  • OK, Moth, take a breath. Please remember that a divorce, moving and changing jobs are some of the greatest stressors out there – and you are going through all 3 at once. Don’t make being raw another one! You are actually doing very well; just the fa…
  • Extraordinary. You look beautiful…you must feel wonderful. And BTW, Tomsmom, I agree with lulushka. 74 pounds is quite an achievement. Be proud!

  • Here’s a link that actually supports what both dodo and TJAB are saying: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/28/palin-... Just a little levity…
  • Dodo, you’re right. I guess my own frustration with these “conversations” gets in the way of seeing the good that might come out of them. And if I look more deeply, I see that what we find intolerable in another is what we find intolerable in oursel…
  • BoyanaGaye, that is a lovely statement, and one that I agree with. Dodo, I was also labeled an “atheist” by Belikeyeshua, although I have never discussed my spiritual beliefs on this website or any other. BTW, I believe Belikeyeshua has previously g…
  • Branwyn, I’m very sorry to hear that as well. This is never, ever easy. Of course I’ll send you lots of healing thoughts and send you an internet hug. Take good care – Mon
  • Just my 2 cents, but here it goes. I would love to have a third party system in this country, but the place to start is in the election of senators and representatives (both state and national). Then you actually have people making legislation at th…
  • Nice thread. Important to think about these things when times seem so dreary. My nicest memory is my wedding day. I’ve had many wonderful days since, but that was truly special. Daily things that make me happy: My husband Our cats Going to the count…
