  • Hello Sweet, Check out nutritiondata.com for more information, but in my research, here are the top veggies for calcium: Ca per oz 1. Lambsquarters 86 mg 2. Dandelion 52 mg 3. Basil 50 mg 4. Arugula 45 mg If I remember correctly, kale and bok choy a…
  • A small amount of Irish moss will lighten up the mixture a little bit. :)
  • You could also try chia or figs. They are excellent binding agents for raw bars, and they're pretty solid. Blessings, Andrew

  • Is there a reason you don't want to use coconut oil or cacao butter? I was thinking red palm oil might work, since it's also a saturated fat. However, the flavor I believe is pretty distintive, and if sustainability is important to you, try to buy a…

  • Figs and soaked chia seeds are excellent binders. :) Blessings, Andrew
  • And oh, by the way, a friend of mine forwarded an online response. Here's the article, and the link as well: http://www.choosingraw.com/a-shift-away-from-veganism-in-the-raw-world/comment-page-1/#comment-36646 Greetings, all! Glad you liked my cabba…
  • Thanks for the comments, interesting all. Most so far seem to be in the Dr. Graham camp. One supplement that seems to be difficult to avoid if you're aiming for optimal health and you're living above 35 degrees latitude is vitamin D. It seems to pla…
  • Hello camiheartsraw, Here are a few other meetup groups of which I am a member. You can probably find others on meetup.com: http://www.meetup.com/The-Vegan-Veggie-adventure-group/ http://rawfood.meetup.com/213/ http://www.meetup.com/The-Eastside-Raw…
  • Hello camiheartsraw, My understanding of carrageenan is that it is linked to inflammation in the digestive tract because it is highly processed. Irish moss in its unprocessed form is a demulcent, which like aloe vera, marshmallow, malva, slippery el…
  • iliveyourdream: Thank you for the kind words. I'm sorry, but I don't have a blog, at least not yet! However, I have just updated my profile with a little more information about myself. Blessings, Andrew
  • At some point, you might want to consider a cleanse. When first starting on a high raw, the absence of cooked food will likely make you feel colder. It's possible there's some plaque buildup in the arteries and veins from years on eating the SAD. Af…
  • blakejack1123: Mia Dalene is coming out with a book in the near future called Smart Raw, detailing how to eat raw on a budget. Hopefully, there will some ideas in the book that you can use. :)
  • Cherry Girl: Wow, looks really interesting! Too bad I'm not very mechanically inclined. It almost makes want to shell out the $750 or so for one of David Wolfe's creations. :)
  • evergreen: Thanks for the link! I might just try it someday. :)
  • The magnetic trap for your water sounds interesting! I know David Wolfe sells an Ormus vortrap you can attach to your sink which concentrates the Ormus content.
  • You can try chickpea miso as a substitute. :)
  • Lucuma is a South American fruit, powdered down and sold on many websites like Natural Zing and rawvegansource.com. It's sweet and has a maple-like flavor. Not exactly like maple powder, but it's similar. :)
  • Yes, it does reduce fat content somewhat. That's why many recipes don't require soaking for high fat content nuts like pine nuts and macadamias, since the fat content is important in providing a creamy consistency. Also, the high fat content nuts ar…
  • pixx: I wasn't really recommending salt, I was just suggesting that if she were to use salt, that an unprocessed salt like Himalayan salt would be preferable, that's all. A whole spectrum salt, as opposed to purified sodium chloride, does not appear…
  • RawTexan: Here's a link to Dr. Mercola's article on hypertension. This might be helpful to you on your healing path. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/02/03/five-smart-strategies-to-lower-your-blood-pressure-naturally.aspx supe…
  • RawTexan: You might want to experiment with limiting the fruit. High blood pressure is often associated with high insulin levels. If you do salt, try an unheated, unprocessed salt like Himalayan salt. Research has been done where the blood pressure …
  • Here are some herbs that can help to support your mood: St. John's Wort (beware of cross reactions), lemon balm, Ho Shou Wu, wild oat milky seed. Any kind of adaptogenic herb can help with your stress response: ashwagandha, schizandra berry, siberia…
  • rawflower: You're welcome! Everyone is biochemically unique. There is such a thing as consuming too much salt, even the unheated, unprocessed salts. If you overdo salt, it seems to have somewhat of a dehydrating effect (at least for me it does). Gen…
  • Like wichten said, Gabriel Cousens' book "Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine" would be a great start. His Phase 1 diet only uses non-sweet fruit--no sweet fruit allowed (unless you have a green salad, then a small amount of Phase 1.5 fruit is allowed […
  • Are you making chocolate by tempering it? If you are, here are some directions: Tempering Chocolate I learned how to temper chocolate at the Eden Hot Springs retreat from Jeff Bottocelli, creator of the Fortina Bar. I haven't tried it yet, but it so…
  • lulushka8: You're right in that sea veggies, if not certified organic, can contain toxins. That's why it's important to seek out a certified organic source. In Japan, they eat a lot more sea veggies that we do here in the West. I believe the per cap…

  • The no. 1 source of magnesium by weight is sea vegetables. I believe kelp powder is number one, and dulse is number 2. Good luck! :)

  • rAWngish teechr: Yes, I noticed the webpage the other day myself. I'm not sure, but it kind of makes sense. If carob is toxic, then perhaps mesquite meal (also a legume) would be as well. However, I've never noticed a toxic effect from either. :)
  • You can also make coconut butter/cream by just blending dried coconut with no water at all. However, you might need a variable speed Vita-Mix for this. I've seen it done at Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. It was pretty cool! It makes a very rich c…
  • Debs60: It might be somewhat related. Oxidative state does have to do with metabolism, but it just doesn't have anything with metabolic rate per se.
