  • Hi all - lovely to meet a couple of you yesterday. I hoped to see a few more Gone-Raw peeps down here. The weather is lovely (for me), t-shirt weather instead of wintercoats - and the promise of yoga, music, good food, good friends and relaxation to…
  • It sounds like the person writing the article has a pro-meat agenda (if that was not obvious) - but if this is is a real case, it is the thing that we have read about before - I know tons of kids who are raw - and not in this sort of state! My take …
  • There's very little that I can add to the excellent insights that you have already had here. My understanding is that sometimes as you detox, toxins that have been (hitherto) locked away in fat cells can come back out during the detox, so you can re…
  • Zinfandel - "If you could only have one car your entire life how would you treat it?" - I use this analogy all the time, especially when I am spending a lot of "needless" time on reading about nutrition - or spending the little extra $$ on organic o…
  • I totally second raw canadian. I picked up HBP in 2005, looked around for a magic bullet for a while, then succumbed to a little daily pill. I had weight, stress and too little exercise. Tons of web sites (even govt web sites) will tell you that onc…
  • I have had eggplant used for lasagne before - it was YUM. www.rawlicious.ca, we had a meetup there. I am (as we speak) marinading some eggplant with hopes of getting myself a lasagne in the next day or two! ciao you lovelies, all of you.

  • There is not unanimity on this site about whether raw eggplant (aubergines) are OK to eat raw... however (I am OK with it) - and... - I have used it for an eggplant smoothie from time to time. (http://www.goneraw.com/recipe/potassium-blast-eggplant-…

  • Thank you, thank you. I cannot wait. I did some Pad Thai using courgettes (zucchini) and some using cucumber. I kinda like the cucumber more, but I think that I will like the kelp best! L & P to all of you. DL.
  • If you can manage anything hot (ginger, cayenne, etc) - give it a shot. I have read that a bit of ginger in a warm bath allows your pores to open and break a really quick sweat. I have not tried it, but it sounds good, and I would love to hear from …
  • Hello fruit, and welcome. Hope you stay here and have fun with us.
  • Thanks - I figured that we need that second ruminant pouch to really do it justice. Excellent/reassuring news!
  • I pondered this a bit last night... I think that being raw exists on two levels - a mental level (which roughly aligns with internal committment to being raw), and a practice level (which aligns with what you are actually doing, depends on other thi…
  • I have noticed that since being raw, I do not need deodorants. Mind you, my days are minus 25 degrees C before the wind bites, so this might not be the same in the 40 degree summers. Sometimes, I just use a pinch of baking soda - or some lemon.

  • I cannot talk about the "dating" bit, (because of me, my now-Mrs gave up vegeterianism for fish), and now I have gone raw on her. But our kids eat meat (everything: red, white (mostly), etc). It was difficult for my wife (me being raw) - for at leas…
  • When I first went raw, I ate a lot of avocados a day for like the first few weeks. probably raw detox playing mind tricks, one day, I even had the idea (and tried it!) - blending avocado into brocolli (just as long as there was avocado!) - Now, I ea…
  • Someone mentioned to me in passing that a rash could be from something dehydrated - for example, if the dehydrator is not hot enough, it can be at just the right temperatiure for bacteria and such. In other words, a pteri dish (as soria puts it) - M…

  • Thanks for that pointer. I'll check it out.

  • So I finally gave calamine lotion a try. According to wikipedia, "....Calamine is a mixture of zinc oxide (ZnO) with about 0.5% iron(III) oxide (Fe2O3)....". It did not look toxic, and I did not want to go down the Bena**** route. I had (for the las…

  • Well, I am now in day three of this blight. I still look handsome, just that with my clothes off you can see slightly raised bumps. It is now all over torso and neck, and is also a little bit on forearms. I hit an organic shop in Columbia MD (my org…
    in Detox Rash????? Comment by derryckl
  • Same thing here. Last night. I would not say that it is happening in the same areas, ;-) - but it is a rash alright! And I am *not* allergic to anything. Until now... The only thing new in my diet is that I finally cracked the raw burger milestone (…

  • very nicely done, twitch! Three stars for you. That was exactly what I was looking for...Many of my family are "Splendid Table" devotees, and I think that this will assist with my advocacy (a casual mention/forwarding of this link ;-) - I am rolling…
  • Pumpkin chips was my first adventure into chips (about 2 weeks into raw, just after Halloween). I made like a salsa, and sliced the pumpkin using a cheese slicer to get thin, even slices. Marinaded the pumpkin slices in the salsa, then dehydrated it…
  • Strawberry - I heard Angela talking on Raw Summit. I had no idea that she was Brit. I switched to meal plans today. Can you drop me a note at derryck.lamptey@gmail.com ?
  • Strawberry - I now live in Toronto, previously Sheffield and London (UK). I'll have a look around here for the Sigg flask. Is it really aluminium? (aluminum as they say around here...) - thanks a ton. I feel as if I have learned so much about juicng…
  • Thanks guys - I could hug all of you - So, *oxidation* is the big enemy.. I am totally cool with the lemon idea. Thanks for all your tips. I don't expect to want to keep it more than 8 hours. Last thing at night (make), first thing in morning (drink…
  • If you have a partner/soulmate/spouse, get him/her(it) on side too. It can be difficult without that! I'll be following this closely, and good luck!! I have three "sort-of-SAD"s in the house, I think that RF would obviously be best, but cannot face …
    in Where do I begin? Comment by derryckl
  • Dovesinna, , usually I have two or three sprout "trays" going at the same time. I have been using (so far) a couple of salad containers to do my sprouts - like the Earthbound clear ones. In the top one, I make some holes to prevent the sprout seeds …
  • I'd love to know this too - I have a sprout fetish, and I am eager to get stuck into sunflower sprouts. In fact, I think I will just go ahead and give it a shot tonight. Zinfandel, watch this space. Someone - please just shout out if there is anythi…
  • I went with the "swallow whole" advice. They went down smooth (literally). And I felt good. Sounds a bit rude, but there's no other way to put it. I might skip the sprouting idea for now.... Thanks, *you lovely people*. For the great advice and supp…
  • Hi there – thanks – I am truly grateful (pun intended) for your reply. I am finding fruits are the easiest way to handle the cravings. Yesterday (visiting my mum in Illinois) – I discovered raw snack bars! What a mind-blower, I had no idea that they…
