  • Hey freepam I am going to have to back out of this trial, it's not the best thing for me right now. I am sorry! I hope it is an adventure for you!
  • My school term starts on the 5th as well. I think that will be the perfect kick-off date!
  • Sweet. I am a n00b at it, so I am still learning. My understanding is that is departs from raw "gourmet", leaves behind fancy nut and dehydrated entrees. 80% of calories comes from carbohydrates, 10% from fat, and 10% from protein. Here is a link to…
  • Hm I guess I will experiment for awhile, and see what happens! Thanks for everyone’s thoughts =.=
  • Hey thanks for the input :) I always make sure to get the good stuff when I indulge. Lady Raven, thanks for pointing out that the cravings might come from something other than nutritional needs—that’s something very important to be aware of!! Kedamo…
  • Hey on a side note, do you find that papaya increases mucus? I’m doing a cleanse with the seeds, and after swallowing them, I immediately noticed more mucus clogging up my nose. I also chewed some of the seeds and ate some of the fruit…

  • eshne—just curious, have you had any success with the tea? I need to wipe out some candida myself and got some Pau d’Arco a while back, but I stopped using it I think because it tasted funky and I wasn’t really sure if it was doing anything…

  • Hey there! I brew my own too. There is an organization, http://www.kombu.de/source.htm,that you can get free cultures from. I got mine from someone in my city, so I can’t actually vouch for their services though. Do any of you think that your homebr…
  • Several of you made a good point, chriscarlton, cavegal—how is HER health? I don’t know if she smokes, but she is a little overweight and mentioned high cholesterol. Funny though, she also mentioned she used to be vegan. I think she switched because…
  • Hey thanks :) I am just worried that since I believe this is so right for me, and we disagree, that maybe her judge ment on other things isn’t the best for me either.
  • rawbeginner—dry brushing is actually excellent for reducing cellulite, as long as you do it long and consistently enough. I tried it a while back and got good results. It works on cellulite by stimulating the lymphatic system. The cellulite is accum…
  • Hello sueko. I did come across juicefeasting.com before posting here, but I didn’t want to pay money to join up…my first priority for juice fasting is cleansing. My second priority is (some) weight loss (btw, my user pic is old..I’ve since gained we…

  • Hi rawbeginner. We share a lot of the same experiences, and I am still working on my relationship with food. When my bingeing was the worst, I ate the worst, most unhealthy food that I had avoided for years when I was vegetarian and vegan. What real…
  • Hmm, do you think bee pollen would do the same thing as honey? I will try the salt thing in the morning, and will see about the honey the next time I go to the store. Thanks for all of your help!

  • We definately are getting sun here in Eugene, it was actually hot today :P It’s amazing how much the sun feeds our bodies…I just got done reading a chapter about sun in David Wolfe’s book, The Sunfood Diet. Has anyone else read it? What do you think…

  • Hm, once I get a dehydrator, I’ll definitely try it, thanks :)

  • Wow thank you guys! Fresh veggie juice should be no problem cause I just got a champion juicer (yay!). Actually, it is encouraging that this is happening if it is detox, that means that my body is getting healthier :)

  • Ooooo…funny you should post this just now. I’ve been going bonkers with trail mix and have been overdoing nuts by a loong shot. Sounds good to me, I’m in :p
  • Ooo I love collard greens! I used to use those instead of tortillas when making burritos with beans and rice and guac…. Do you stick the tubberware in your backpack or do you have to take a lunchbox? What’s your fav green smoothie? Sorry for all the…
  • Yay! I just registered online :) Is there a carpool?
  • I want to go very badly! I just saw a flyer for it when I was in Portland this weekend. I also had my first raw restaurant experience there, has anyone else been to Blossoming Lotus? Wonderful :p
  • Yay! Good for you and welcome :)
