  • I love hemp milk. Yum! Here is a recipe: http://kristensraw.blogspot.com/2009/05/how-to-make-raw-vegan-milk.html Cheers, Kristen
  • Check out SunOrganic - http://www.sunorganicfarm.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=DAT I buy the 3 pound or the 11 pound options. There is a nice drop in price when you do this, so I buy in bulk and either: Store in my refrige…

  • I use a sublingual B12. One of the brands I like is: http://www.vitacost.com/Jarrow-Formulas-Methyl-B12 I've read that the methyl version is better assimilated. Regarding Spirulina and Algae forms of B12.... this is from wikipedia: "...So-called …
  • Pretty much in my opinion. Here is a blog post I wrote on freezing raw food that you might be interested in. http://kristensraw.blogspot.com/2009/04/how-why-i-freeze-raw-vegan-food.html Cheers, Kristen
  • Smoothies (especially green smoothies) can be very helpful and they're easy to make and transport. They make a great breakfast, snack, or dessert!!! As you add more greens to your life, you'll feel healthier and healthier. I would eat as much organi…
  • Yeah, that stuff is yummy. :)
    in RAW BREAD ?! Comment by KristensRaw
  • I've definitely had times where I ate 3 bananas in a row. I don't do it often, but there are times, yes. I like getting my vitamin B6 from them, among other nutrients (vitamin C, potassium, and fiber). And, they're so easy to take with me for the da…

  • Hi everyone, :) When it comes to the Raw lifestyle, I find that one of the biggest hurdles for people has to do with social situations. Whether it

  • I find that I don't have to wear it often, which is great. But, on those rare occasions, I have an absolute favorite... It's by Terressentials (http://www.terressentials.com/bath.html#deo). It gets great reviews. My mom loved it, too. Cheers to fre…
  • It's a great point. You can also make Raw foods have a warming nature by adding certain flavors and spices (for example, ginger, garlic, or hot peppers). Also, including fermented, unpasteurized foods is great as well as miso (living, but not Raw).…
  • I went vegan for the animals. I recognize it's optimal for health and the environment, but my initial reasoning is my passion and love for animals. My introduction into veganism was with John Robbins' book Diet For A New America. Cheers, Kristen  
  • I get my vitamin D from the sun and I take a B12 supplement :) I eat a balanced diet that for the most part is seasonal. Sometimes I'm 100% Raw/Vegan and sometimes I'm High Raw, All Vegan (HRAV). I've never felt better in my life :) Cheers and good…
  • I think that's a great question. I have a TCM doctor who has taken my raw food prep classes and she told me that while TCM doesn't traditionally support a lot of raw in the diet, she continued to take my classes because I added plenty of warming in…
  • Banana Orange Salad with Sweet Capri Dressing Holiday Chia Pudding (http://kristensraw.blogspot.com/2009/04/holiday-chia-pudding-recipe-raw-vegan.html) That's breakfast and lunch... :) Cheers, Kristen PS... Soon, I'll be making my Green Pregnant Mom…
  • Since today is still ongoing... I'll post yesterday's food (pics and short video on my blog) During the day I had four servings of Plant Blood throughout the day (that's what I call green juice, although one of them was pink - haha) Night time: Raw …
  • Great tips from the dentist about brushing gently, swishing with salt water and then with peppermint oil :) My husband and I also experienced problems with our teeth, among other things, when following 811. It wasn't for us, but anyone following it…
  • I have a bag in my refrigerator and I can't wait to eat them this week. I've ordered them online in the past, but they also sell them at Whole Foods Market. My husband hasn't had them yet and I think he'll love them. Cheers, Kristen Suzanne  
  • This varies depending on my mood, what I ate the day before, and the season.... but here is a list of things from which I typically choose: 1. Fresh Plant Blood (green juice) 2. Fresh Green Smoothie 3. Fresh fruit (usually a couple of bananas) 4. To…

  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE dates... hhhmmmm yum! Fresh, plump, organic medjool are so delicious. I eat them pretty much every day. I order mine from www.SunOrganic.com where they get cheaper as you buy more in bulk. So, I stock up and store them in glass maso…
  • I've had great success juicing my greens with my Breville. I paid about $100 for it (through Amazon during the summer of 2008) and it now appears amazon is charging $200 for it. The model I have is: Breville BJE200XL Juice Fountain Compact Chrome Ex…

  • It could definitely be some detoxing if you're feeling lethargic. Or, not. If you're not feeling particularly lethargic, it could just be a little "lazy" bug. After all, it is a busy time of year and it's winter, so like you wrote, sometimes you jus…
  • Exfoliation is a real key with keeping your skin clear. I have an awesome loofah (renewable plant fiber) I purchased from www.Terressentials.com - Their products are hand-crafted, USDA Certified Organic which means these products are truly 100% Natu…
  • Transition slowly with the following ideas: Breakfast and Snacks: Smoothies (both fruit smoothies and green smoothies). Keep the green smoothies heavier on the fruit so you really like them. All fruit smoothies are delicious and raw and wonderful …
  • I have both the Blentec and the Vita mix. They are both great, but what I find is that I ALWAYS go to use my Blendtec even though they're side by side on my counter. The main thing is how easy it is to clean out the food from and to clean in general…
  • The 140 rule is supposed to apply to Excalibur dehydrators only, due to the technology of the air flow. If you have another brand of dehydrator, like a stackable, where the heat comes from the bottom... it's supposedly not recommended for those sinc…
  • I’ve had periods where I’m 100% Raw and periods where I’m HRAV (High Raw – All Vegan) – like I am currently. With both diets, I feel great. I think balance is important, as well as changing seasons, where you’ve been in the past with your diet, what…
  • I found some of the items in the RAWvolution box were good and I also found a number of them too salty for my tastes. My husband liked them all okay (not as salty in his opinion). There is another place that I have not tried, but you might be inter…
  • Frozen veggies are typically NOT raw because they are blanched before freezing – thereby destroying most of the nutrition. Fruit, as mentioned above, is fine because it’s not blanched before freezing. I’ve read that you can lose as much as up to 30%…
