  • Broccoli can be eaten raw, but why would you want to? It does not taste good, which should tell you something. It is virtually indigestible due to the high cellulose content and will cause gas. Stick with foods that actually taste good in their raw …
  • I don't think the coconut butter would blend properly unless the smoothie was warmed to it's melting temp. Besides, adding coconut butter would add far to much fat content IMO.
  • Humans require their greatest protein intake during the first year of life when our bodies are most rapidly growing. Milk from our mother's breast is our only required food for the first 6-12 months. Human milk = 6% protein Watermelon = 7% Spinach =…

  • TreeOfLife, Is it not surprizing how many people here believe the lie about salt. As the saying goes…”If you tell a lie long enough, people are apt to believe it”. What is really disappointing is that the people who frequent this forum are obviously…
  • Blue Eyes, Yes, I have that book. But you know what…the only water I drink is a glass first thing in the morning to help flush the bowels and perhaps a glass in the sauna. I am never thirsty because of my high water content diet of raw fruits and ve…
  • Blue Eyes, I never said you did. Just stating a fact regarding water retention in the body and excess dietary salt. Which I’m sure everyone knows as it is common knowledge. By the way, I have been studying physiology, anatomy, and nutrition for over…
  • Oh no….here we go again. At risk of offending the many salt addicts on this forum…salt or soduim chloride is an inorganic mineral. Only plants can assimilate inorganic minerals like sodium chloride in the soil. Humans cannot, irregardless of what ev…
  • “But the Pacific brand of almond milk is the closest to raw” That statement makes no sense. All packaged almond/soy/rice milk is pastuerized at 70 deg. C at least. They certainly are not “close” to raw. Make your own almond milk by soaking 1 cup of …

  • Cacao = Poison Remove it from your diet and you will feel much better. (I know I will hear it fromn the cacao addicts now!)
  • KhaasLadki said... "never eat naked carbs - don't eat carbs without fat or fiber to help your body digest them, so when I eat a banana I either have nuts or something with oils in it" Where did you hear this? Do you realise that a banana is 3% fat a…
  • Alcohol is a poison. It does NOT "fit well with a raw lifestyle"! You must have had a glass or two before writing that post.

  • I buy a case (9 one pound (454g) containers) from Rocky Mountain Grain products in Alberta. Shipped to my door for $100 CDN! I asked them and they will ship to the USA for the same price. You can call them at (403)329-1380 to order. I mainly use the…
  • I’ll say it one last time because people are just not getting it. The body needs organic sodium found in raw fruit and veggies not salt. Human beings are not bags of salt and water as achin70 says. And the other statements she makes are even more la…

  • Sorry folks…table salt, sea salt, Himalayan salt, etc. are one and the same…sodium chloride. An inorganic mineral that the body cannot use. It enters the body as a crude inorganic salt, it is absorbed unchanged, goes the rounds of general circulatio…

  • I can’t believe people are even asking this question? It has been well known for more than 50 years that sodium chloride (table salt) is very bad for the body. Salt causes hypertension, osteoporosis, and significantly increases the risk of stomach c…

  • Many people fail on the raw lifestyle because they try to make raw versions of their SAD favorites. Far too time consuming if you ask me. And often these dishes are high in fat and use incompatible ingredients as far as food combining is concerned. …

  • I am an aspiring Fruitarian as well. The days I eat only fruit, usually as mono meals, I feel the best. I have much more energy, sleep better, and have much greater mental clarity. Though I still have some cravings for cooked food and will occasiona…
  • I bought a conventional cantaloupe last week and it tasted like cardboard. I threw the whole thing in the compost. Then I bought two organic ones. Much better, sweet and refreshing!

  • I dropped one of those large water bottles (water cooler type) on my Excalibur last year. It was full as well so must have weighed about 75lbs! The top and sides were cracked. When I turned it on the fan was hitting part of the wire mesh cover. I ju…
  • Kelley, Doing ab work is not going to get rid of the fat around your waist. It is just going to build the muscles underneath the fat. My wife can tell you the same thing after trying for years. Yoga and pilates are great but their main purpose is no…
  • I agree with jkd_soccer801… Interval training for 20 minutes a day along with a raw diet of 10% fat max will get rid of the stomach fat.
  • For more than 500 million years, all animal species on earth ate a raw diet and thrived. Only for the last 10,000 years one species has decided to cook much of it’s food and you don’t need to look very far to see the consequences. If a raw diet was …

  • ACV can be used to wash fruits & veggies and it also help reduce mildew, germs and odor. As for it being toxic, this is what Herbert Shelton said; “Vinegar is not an evil merely because its highly toxic acetic acid content destroys ptylain (sali…
  • Enemas are harmful and a waste of time. I had been occassionally doing them for 15 years with no positve results. An enema only goes as far as the colon. All the rotting mucoid plaque is in the 33 ft small intestine. The body is self-cleansing. Eat …
  • “All things in moderation” I can’t stand that phrase! I have known several people who smoked in moderation, drank in moderation, ate the SAD diet in moderation, etc. They are now either dead or are gradually dieing of cancer, heart desease, diabetes…
  • I agree with jaymz72 and Moth. Even though I have a 9 tray Excalibur, I don’t consider dehydrated foods truly raw. My definition of raw means “as nature provides it”.
  • Sometimes the amount of misinformation posted on these forums astounds me. DreamBrother, I suggest you look up any glycemic index table of common foods before you scare people with half truths and lies. You will find that bananas, oranges, and grape…
  • I bought one a couple of years ago and do love it. In the winter I sometimes use it 5 times per week for sessions that range from 30 min to 1 hour. I have the temp set at 55 deg. C. However, I now believe that infrared saunas do not detoxify as much…

  • Why strain out all that great fibre at all? Such a waste. Green smoothies give you all the nutrients of the juice plus all the fibre broken down for easy digestion. Plus you don’t get the insulin rush from the quick absorption into the bloodstream o…
