  • Part of the reason I went raw was to get a "lost" menstrual cycle back. After not having one for over a year, my cycle was back after two months of being raw. I have no comments on how to increase fertility, but I hear so much about women losing a p…
  • AVL, Yes!! I have experience with this. I myself have suffered from eczema and a very close friend of mine has been struggling with sever psoriasis for the past two years. She does not eat raw, but attempted to alleviate her condition by following a…
  • I'm on the fence about vaccinations. I do not know anyone personally who has had any adverse effects from vaccinations. I choose to avoid vaccines whenever possible. Like the flu vaccine, for example. I really don't understand what is so scary about…
  • Wow, that's really interesting. I've only been raw for 30 days, but one thing I have noticed is that my hair has become much thicker and the few strands of gray I did have have gone away completely. I'm hoping it stays this way. How long have you be…

  • I have been having the exact same problem. I don't crave coffee, I don't want it...but for some reason my body will not let go of the addiction. I'm a complete mess in the morning and my head feels like a total foggy mess. It's been the hardest part…
  • Daniefon... One more question about the Zucchini. How long do you leave it resting with the salt? Thanks!! :) I think you are right! These are going to be the hit of the party.
  • Daniefon, did you end up making the "crazy bread"? I am curious to know how it came out.
  • WOW!!! Amazingly helpful suggestions everyone! Thank you so much!! I'll take pictures of my final product and let everyone know how it turns out. I am so excited now! YAY!
  • I'll be receiving my "World Cuisine Tri-Blade" in the mail today!!! I can hardly wait! I've been craving Zucc. pasta and pesto. I also just came across a really fantastic Pistachio-Pesto recipe. I'll post that in the recipes forum for those interest…

  • Mikfizzle! How is the Breville with Wheat Grass?
  • Awesome! You guys are great!! Has anyone ever used a Breville? http://www.consumersearch.com/juicers/breville-juice-fountain-elite-800jexl
  • Thanks, Sheik! I'm going to try cutting back on the nuts for the next few days and see if it makes a difference. I'll let everyone know how it goes :)
  • Yeah, I am consuming a lot of seeds and nuts too (all raw/unsalted, of course). I am still trying to figure out which amounts of everything is best for my body (I'm waiting for it to tell me). I've been trying to balance my meals daily to equal 1/3 …
  • Hmmm, all very interesting. I'm sure it's a combination of a lot of things and I think my increased exercise has probably helped change the shape of my body which would account for the tightness of the clothes in some areas. I remember after a few d…
  • Hi Sheik! Have you tried checking out http://www.localharvest.org/ ? It's a website devoted to helping people find farmers' markets, family farms, and other sources of sustainably grown food in their area. It also includes CSA's, Co-Ops, restaurants…
  • In terms of any kind of craving, all I can say is this....I have heard nutrition experts say that it's easier to avoid the item you are craving than it is to eat and then try to stop. That being said, I also believe "everything in moderation, includ…

  • I use to see a dermatologist quite frequently for dry skin and he actually recommended using hydro-cortisone or cortisone cream as a moisturizer. Works great! Also, when I drink lots and lots of water I definitely notice an improvement in my skin. S…
  • This is a good thread. I was wondering about Tofu myself. I too have seen "raw" cookbooks which have tofu in some recipes and actually was a little taken aback by it. I always thought tofu, for the most part, was processed food. This inspired me to …
