  • That's true about the salt thing- I avoid it like the plague, myself, but I also eat heaps of seaweed. I usually soak it until all the salt comes out, or as much as possible. After soaking and rinsing multiple times, it's usually pretty salt-free ex…

  • Oy, that's scary (the headshaker)... and annoying. You handled it well, I think, by not overreacting. I might have been wasting energy, but I'd have honestly been fuming inside- I *hate* it when people judge me without having any good judgement to d…
  • Eep. *blushes* Hey, it's still a great looking costume, just a bit skimpy for my comfort zone, lol. Kudos to her for being able to go outside in underwear!
  • Woo! Halloween thread! I'm being some kind of witch-thing- I bought a kid's costume in a large because it was 12 bucks, as opposed to about 40- it's fairly loose, so it definitely fits, but... I might need pants of some kind. I was planning on cutti…
  • Sorry, but do you think you could post where you found the info about it being more like spinach than a grain? *so confused*.. I always thought it was a seed, if it wasn't a grain, but maybe I'm way wrong.

  • Spekgirl, maybe this is a bit off off topic but toxins aside, I'm wondering about how raw fish fits into your idea of "raw vegan." Specifically the "vegan" part. I know there are people who consume raw fish and tout its health benefits, and I wouldn…
  • superfood2, I know that it's important to be self-sufficient and not let other people control how you think/act/etc... it's also really hard sometimes to not put the responsibility for a problem on other people. However, that said, if he's being uns…
  • Eek. That's a really scary story, wichten, but I do have to say- you can have a copper iud put in without having a kid first- I did, and I also had it done on a day when I didn't have my period (you're supposed to wait till you do, apparently it's e…

  • You're welcome! And rice vinegar is actually really good in just about everything, it almost gives it a bit of a sweet/sour flavor. Good luck!
    in Balsamic Vinegar Comment by bean
  • I agree with the bit about all vinegar being acidic- I do have a few things to add to that, though, based on personal experience. I visit a naturopath frequently, and have had quite a few conversations about what vinegar does. I brought this up to h…

  • Omigosh! I remember this fruit! went to Maui on a family vacation a while ago, and we took a tour through a kind of.. outdoor arborium, or whatever it's called. They had a huge amount of wild plants and trees, growing everything from avocados to pas…
  • Thanks for the suggestions! Yeah, I've considered the thyroid thing- I checked a bunch of those symptom lists, and I fit EVERY SINGLE ONE. I'm really hoping, if it is that, it can be corrected- but even better would be the stress thing! I finished m…
  • I didn't click on it myself, but now I'm insanely curious... is the link still there? Can I click it? What kind of "offensive" was it?
  • I have a myspace page? ... *thinks* ... oh YEAH! I do, don't I? Lol, I started that one a long time ago- thanks, though! - I do have a blog now, actually- www.snarkinthelibrary.blogspot.com but it's not really about raw anything, it's kind of more l…
  • Jennifer, I added you on facebook!
  • aw, don't feel too badly about it, susan121- tomorrow's another try, right? Plus, it's all just a process, it's not really something you can muck up completely with one little slide. Since we're in the mindset anyways- It's like running in a really …
  • I'm the only one in my family too- my entire family thinks I've been brainwashed, I think... still, they seem to no longer eat as much meat as they did before. Maybe it's just having so much extra fresh stuff in the house? I know a lot of people won…
  • ooh, a half marathon- what a great idea! I've always wanted to try one- that's 5 km, right? or is it 10? let me know how your training goes- I think there might be one in my hometown I could enter (I'm at school right now), if my knees hold up. I'll…
  • I thought that if on the jar it says "unpasteurized" then that means it hasn't been heated.
  • If you don't mind the "un-rawness" of it, you could try adding some irish moss, or another thickener (soaked and blended dates work and might taste good in a pasta sauce) to get it a bit thicker- it might not be creamy, but if you add something else…
  • Aww, carrothuff, that's so sweet! I bet you are gorgeous, too, with all the raw food you're eating! This is an interesting one for me, because I've had a lot of flak from meat eaters for eating raw and because of that, I try especially hard not to j…
  • Ick! What about the organic ones you can buy in small packages at health food stores? There are some that look about the size of prunes, almost- if they're labeled organic, and sold fresh, are they still likely to have been treated with sulphur? (I'…
    in raisins- raw? Comment by bean
  • 0_0 . . . omigod.... there truly is no end to the evils people can dream up and rationalize.
  • that is the same with me, and it's a major relief to hear from other people who don't eat fat as well- I occasionally worry or get panicked that I'm actually harming myself by not taking in "enough" fat. Whenever I hear or read anything about essent…
    in I don't like fat... Comment by bean
  • I have a salt question that might be a bit controversial- I understand that a lot of raw foodies try to limit their salt intake and might even avoid it altogether, preferring to get their salt through plants. I tried a bit of research, and every med…

  • Mock salmon with pumpkin? *drools* the mock salmon recipes are some of my favorites to make! Generally I make them nut-free since I don't really do nuts or seeds, but I've made some darn tasty fake fish out of carrots and other stuff!! Do you have t…
  • you can ferment pumpkin? whoah. That's kind of cool, though I suppose you can ferment anything if you try- does pumpkin taste good fermented? you're quite creative, seaweed!
  • wouldn't it be nice if we could all just snack on whatever food we wanted, fatty, salty, heavy, whatever, and just keep getting healthier and fitter? Ah well... suppose some people just have the metabolisms of 12 year old boys, lol. I'm curious- doe…
  • Hey Kyko! We must have been separated at birth- I'm 5'1, 19, in school, and have exactly your problem. I love to eat, and I want desperately to be able to eat what I like- fats included, which unforunately I've had to put a heavy limit on. I don't d…
  • I'm curious- why would you only want to eat one meal a day? Wouldn't it be a really big meal, and then hard on your digestive system to digest? If I only ate one meal a day, I'd be so starving I'd eat way too much, and then have trouble digesting it…
