  • Somebody on another forum claims this place isn't really raw ... http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/showthread.php?t=47461 I wouldn't know, having never been there myself, but thought it was worth mentioning.
  • You might find this blog useful: http://www.rawtoddleralex.blogspot.com/ Alex is 2 1/2 and as been raw vegan since birth. Everyday is Mum posts what he eats. Unfortunately, the original blog was deleted by thieves, so you can’t browse any back entri…

  • I used to eat these in handfuls in my non-raw days, when I was working in a deli. Maybe I should get back into them! They are delicious – they have a much milder garlic taste, but still retain a crunchy texture. You also end up with a very nice garl…
  • You might allow the highly-flavoured (delicious sounding) crust to “speak for itself” by having a simpler filling, which doesn’t repeat the vanilla and date flavours. Maybe just blended frozen banana and strawberry to make a kind of light, ice-cream…
  • Grated swede (rutabaga) is the best :) It is also great shaved into a stir-not-fry … comes out just like bamboo shoots.

  • Luna blu: Nama shoya is also made from soy – unfermented, but still soy.
  • Cooked pulses … just very simply done. But I do eat these on occasion, so perhaps they don’t count.
  • I wouldn’t feel at all bad about taking the pill. For me, the problem for me with fertility awareness if that I always (obviously) want to do it on the days I’m ovulating!

  • Try this forum: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=16 It’s specifically about raw kids.
  • It could just be that you’re lacking energy. You mention in your profile that you enjoy running cross-country. If you do this regularly, it could be that you’re expending more energy than you’re taking in. The body sometimes craves sweet things when…
  • I think a lot of people come to raw from an unhealthy relationship with food – either from not eating enough of it OR from eating too much of it, if you get what I mean. Raw seems to provide people with one way of combatting either of these things i…
  • Okay – there’s an update on the Raw Baby Alex situation here: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/showthread.php?t=37796 Last post on the thread.
  • What’s going on?! I hope Melissa, Alex & David are okay!
  • You make an interesting point, but I’d personally be careful if a food is actually giving your children hives & other symptoms. Perhaps just leave off them for a few months, then try intoducing them later? They can get comparable nutrients from …
  • Maybe your body doesn’t need / want to lose weight … Or, if you feel that’s really not the case, maybe your body just doesn’t want to right at the moment … It could still be healing, and will perhaps drop excess weight when it has finished healing. …

  • Yes, I believe it is perfectly okay, rawrawraw! Not an egg-eater myself but like the sound of Raw_Chocoholic’s suggestion re: the miso soup!
    in Raw Eggs? Comment by Belisarius
  • Raw granola (do a search on the recipe section here) & nut milk? You might also find looking back over past posts on this “Raising Raw Kids” forum helpful: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=16 Good luck x
  • Personally, I think you should just eat when you’re hungry …

  • Grate them into a slaw or salad! Delicious …
    in Turnips? Comment by Belisarius
  • Yep – am in accord with the last three posts. I am frightened by other raw forums, but this one rawks. Peace.
  • Zoe – is it safe to drink unfiltered / unpurified rain-water? Sounds exciting, and I would love to try it, but I feel concerned about industrial pollutants …

  • I’ve never had a problem eating cooked pulses / grains (though I avoid wheat).
    in 25% Cooked! Comment by Belisarius
  • I don’t have (& so use) a dehydrator because it has never felt “right” to me, somehow. I will buy commercial, raw flax-crackers sometimes, as I find they help with bread-like cravings. But, generally, I stick to raw food with raw names & agr…
  • I’m with ron4540 on this one. I really respect the decision to be 100% raw if it feels right for your body, but I do myself feel I benefit from sometimes eating cooked grains / legumes (though I don’t find cooking vegetables is beneficial to me pers…
  • thegymbum19 – if you’re still reading this thread, and have not run away (!), you are absolutely stunning; in perfect physical shape & just glowing with health. I hope you keep eating the living foods that are making you look so alive in your ph…
    in Starving?? Comment by Belisarius
  • There’s a non-raw soy sauce substitute here: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Soy-Sauce-Substitu… Tweaking the non-vegan and non-raw parts would depend on how strictly raw you are. I’m guessing the beef bouillon here could maybe be subbed with the water…
  • I’m with krispi & chriscarlton on this one – really, you don’t need to restrict a 100% raw diet, especially if you’re transitioning. Your body will honestly find its own way. Besides, from your picture it looks as though you’re in a wonderful st…

  • Abstinence? Sorry, kidding – couldn’t resist. The best thing is probably to have her chart her cycle, and adjust your “activities” accordingly. Isn’t foolproof, though, and may be frustrating for her as many women feel more like having sex when they…
    in Contraception Comment by Belisarius
  • Mmm. I agree with all of the above. But I particularly like ‘em with greener skins – then they are incredibly, deliciously tangy … mouth watering, now.
