  • "Diatomaceous earth is an extremely effective anti-parasitic (I'd say even more so than the herbs you mention). Just be sure that neither you nor your dog breathe in the powder." My family also uses DE for worming our animals. (dog and cats) We buy …
  • Valya and Sergei Boutenko's book "Eating without Heating" was the first book I got on raw food...and their Rawberry Shortcake is still my favorite sweet recipe to date. I need to try some of their green smoothies, they sound good. If you check out t…
  • Here's another thing I eat all the time: Soak about 1-2 tablespoons of buckwheat groats in water for an hour or so. Drain, rinse, drain. Mix a little vanilla, some cinnamon, and a couple tablespoons of honey together with groats. Chop half an apple …
  • When I make my walnut mylk, I have pulp left over. I mix that pulp with a little vanilla, a pinch sea salt, honey, and dried shredded coconut; then I spread thinly on dehydrator trays to dehydrate into pieces of "toast." Dehydrate until hard, flip, …
  • Sometimes people see what you eat and then when you try to explain to them why certain things are so bad for them they automatically stop listening to you and assume your wrong just because your an "extremist who eats raw all the time."
  • I get the feeling a lot of times too that most people think I'm an extremist. Yeah.....that was the first outright negative comment I've gotten on my raw photos. Most people comment positively & would like to try some of the recipes & I've g…
  • If I know that I'm going to be showering the next morning, I'll do like Nell and put a bunch more coconut oil on the ends and even up to the roots of my hair before I go to bed. Always have used coconut oil on my body but never thought of a massage …
  • I use coconut oil almost every night to remove eye make-up....it doesn't sting your eyes like the chemical removers do and it's the best natural alternative to remover. It might be helpful too to gulp down a spoonful of it too.
  • What brands would you recommend for dessicated coconut?
  • One really easy cheap meal idea I use a lot: Cut up 1 apple. Pour honey over it (basically sweeten to taste) and then add cinnamon. Add a tensy little bit of water and let the apples "marinate" a bit in the water/honey/cinnamon mixture. Finish off w…
  • There are a ton of different recipes for nut milk but you can follow a very simple formula: Rinse 1 cup of nuts, then soak for 4 hours or at least 6 hours, rinse and then put these nuts in a blender. (Don't put the water you used to soak the nuts in…
  • I can't afford to buy completely raw nuts......my family just buys walnuts, almonds, and pecans in bulk from Costco (or Sam's Club) When I make walnut milk, I use up the leftover pulp by adding in honey, vanilla, a pinch of sea salt, and shredded dr…
  • My family is very supportive of my lifestyle with the exception of my brother...... Not many kids your age or mine (I'm 19) would ever think about going raw and there needs to be more out there......it's great that you are looking into it! Don't giv…

  • Goji berries have an enormous amount of C in them: more Vitamin C in a handful of goji berries than in a whole box of oranges!

  • Make guacamole and put a little bit of cayenne pepper it it. Spread on raw chips or a unraw tortilla if you don't have those with some hemp seed, lettuce, chopped tomato and chopped onion. Guacamole burritos! And if you really want it to taste like …
  • I put some on all of my fingers on one hand and rub gently. Use a tissue to get any oil left.

  • Coconut oil is what I use every night to take off my waterproof eye make-up.....it's so much easier on your skin than the harse chemical stuff. Coconut oil is also really good to keep hair conditioned. The night before I need to wash my hair, I mass…

  • Yesterday my family went to a "restaurant" (Ruby Tuesday's) and was very surprised that my 12-year old brother (who says he hates raw food) ordered the salad bar.....he is also the one who has me make him a fruit salad every day. I don't make him tr…
  • Very surprised the "G" person didn't do goji berries, they are the best G-letter fruit! Raspberries Raspberries contain significant amounts of polyphenol antioxidants such as anthocyanin pigments linked to potential health protection against several…
  • As a couple of others have said, use raw honey. I have a limitless supply of honey because my Dad & I are beekeepers and didn't sell any honey this year. Raw honey hasn't been processed or heat-treated, and is the most natural form of sweetener …
  • Looked at the recipe for the homemade natural deodorant on passionate homemaking's website and told my mom about it. She said one of the ladies from our church had given us some homemade deodorant that was almost exactly like it. (with the addition …

  • Interesting....I've wanted to post a question on here about the exact same thing. I shave my pits every time I shower, and I put my deodorant on right after I get out of the shower (Dessert Essence natural deodorant). Tried many organic natural deod…

  • #1 Thing You Need to Do: Have at least one green smoothie a day...you'll benefit from the great nutrition. That consists of fruit, greens, and water. Very easy do, very tasty, just blend and then go. Look up or buy the book "Green Smoothie Revolutio…
  • By the way, I've lost 4 pounds on green smoothies! I drink a quart every day along with a little bit of soaked nuts & other raw stuff, but I love it! I could survive on just GS if I had to. I especially love that you keep the fiber-rich pulp fro…
  • Have you tried any of the other types of kale? (Dinosaur, rainbow) Chard, endive, turnip greens, celery, mustard greens, and collard greens are delicious!Carrot tops & beet greens work too, as well as good old romaine lettuce, arugula, and wheat…
  • I am a raw protestant Christian too that wants to live her life glorifying Christ with everything I do and say, and that includes taking good care of my body! Jesus Christ is the center of my life and I love learning about raw food, but it'll never …
