  • All natural skincare! Woohoo! I weaned off all unnatural products during the course of 2009, so I'm keen to share my experience, malchusmom. As background, I'd just like to say that I had had chronic acne since I was 12 and it only stopped at 26 ( I…
  • Welcome Faryn! hope you find as much inspiration and stamina as I have from this website and other raw fooders on the web community. It's helped me a lot to come look pertinently for new raw recipe ideas, keeps one motivated, fresh and raw even when…
  • Thanks for this thread Tahiti. It's inspiring in its very nature: formulating why I eat raw for myself again. The simplicity and naturalness of eating raw is beautiful. In short, it makes me feel pure and closer to God. I feel a bond with nature; it…
  • try green fennel seeds too, it also freshens the breath, also great for digestion. I love the taste. It's actually an Indian tradition!
  • I'm not a nutritionist, so won't be able to advise you on the content of your daily food intake. However, on the gum: is it raw gum if one ever gets something like that? because the ingredients and extreme processed nature of gum would cause me to s…
  • An update on my experience of trying to go no-poo: I've given up. Did all I could find in research and ideas, bought the boar bristle brush (great, glad I did), washed with baking soda, used vinegar, tried going for weeks without washing to see if t…
  • Feedback on going no-poo: (about 3 weeks into it now) Going all right, juggling feelings of giving it up versus pushing through. Bought a bristle brush and scalp-massager, loving it! And tried washing my hair with vinegar to get a measure of the oil…
  • Mmm, Blue Eyes, our clothes get quite dirty ;-) but I'll try it and let you know!
  • Thanks all! Like all your input. I'm doing quite well on the no-shampoo, day 6 today, after you guys inspired me. I found brushing my hair from scalp through to the ends for at least 5 minutes daily worked to get the oiliness out. So yeah, like Kitt…
  • Cool,thanks for your replies! convinced to give it another go. Natosha120 & Blue Eyes, is your hair soft and clean feeling like washed hair, is there any difference?
  • Not addicted any longer! Glad to report that I've spent 2 weeks having my 2 big salads a day (it's really the craving buster people claim it to be!) and I had no tahini, only had dates four days ago for the first time again. And the cravings are gon…
  • Your comment has been mulling around a lot. Like I've gotta get to grips with the bigness of the fact that I'm addicted to the sweet rich food. I totally agree and see it though. Practically speaking, I thought I should only stock acid and subacid f…
  • Mmm, rawmamanibbles..... please elaborate a bit more.... don't see the connection yet
  • Great advice, I take it! gotta become unaddicted
  • Wish you could take me on a tour of your edible garden. Big dream of mine! Does your family also eat raw with you when you do? I am convinced I was made a health food lover, just always preferred the healthy stuff and gradually matured and refined w…
  • Hi Poemomm!! Welcome back! I'm new here and I love the cool community and openness of everyone. What is one of your favourite things about being raw? How long have you been raw?
  • Hey Kim! I joined this site yesterday, as excited as you are! I get a friendly community vibe that's open to everyone, so I feel at home already. Also 100% raw, for 5 months now. Ate very healthily before this, was vegetarian like you, for a few mon…
  • Hi Ancica! I'm from South Africa. So interested, how did you get to be raw?
  • Seems like everyone has said it all, but to add and encourage you further, niccyhk, I'm also in there: me 100% raw vegan and he 100% junk food, and it's working and our love flourishes! In fact, I tell people all the time that it's a win-win situati…
  • I take 45mg of Bcomplex with a 5mg folic acid in the morning, and 45mg Bco again at lunch. Keeps me out of trouble in the eating and groggy department. Not sure what a doctor may prescribe.
  • I'm 100% raw and eating well, I live in South Africa so we've got great variety of fruit & veg all year. Anyway, I stopped my B12 supplements after going raw. On levels of energy and radiant health I was up there on raw, but then after a month I…
  • Hello rawcanadian, I'm from South Africa, warm climate obviously; but my husband and I look forward to spending a couple of years in Canada. Aiming to backpack and travel lots the first year or so, and then maybe settle in BC in the mountain/forest …
  • Hey leafygreen, Now that you're on enemas, I so want to do a coffee one! I've also read about the amazing results! My husband thinks I am the weirdest case ever: a person who actually want to have one! I would so do one if I wasn't forbidden to do i…
  • Great extra benefits that no-one has mentioned yet: (I've experienced all of them) Cellulite gradually vanishes Even skin tone all over the body No more toxic puffiness in body appearance My complexion changed drastically, I just wash it with water,…
  • I love tahini so much that I had to break an addiction to it when I first became raw! Now it's got its proper place. Ayenjay, I prefer tahini by the spoonful all unadulterated too! Glad to say that it can stay with a spoon or two now, not 5 or half …
  • Definitely sprout hulled buckwheat. It's impossible to sprout the unhulled seeds, I've tried! Then someone in the raw know told me to only sprout hulled buckwheat, sprouting some myself at the moment.

  • All sprouts are super high, if not the highest, source of protein, but lentils and other beans act like a starch in your digestive system. The enzyme that breaks down starch in the stomach breaks down beans. Lentils are also one of the rare food gro…

  • Sweet, there's a good article that I found on Google titled "What every raw fooder should know about nuts" if I'm not mistaken. It's an article that lists near all nuts and then comments on the standard procedure to get them from nature to the state…

  • Hi Waldens1999, You still doing well on raw? see you posted in Feb. I joined few days ago, round 12 June 2010? I'm also Christian, passionate about Jesus. Where you from (country)? Me, South Africa. What made you decide to go raw? Tell me about bene…
  • Hello BreakingFree, your post to Christians got me to join this site! But it's a great site too, give honour where it's due. Thanks for being so free and putting things in perspective regarding eating and being Christian. I'm born-again Christian fr…
