  • i had a similar issue when i first started using my dehydrator. And we have an infra red thermometre so I would check the food and find it wasn't what the temperature was set to. I contacted excalibur and they told me that the food temp is always lo…
  • mine won't either. it just posts the name of the file.
  • i personally like the more interesting raw foods. While some of it i guess "mimics" SAD food, it's often a healthy version of it. It's kind of like how if you're making vegan, non-raw muffins, you replace the sugars with bananas, replace the fats wi…
  • 1. look into what you're washing your face with. If you're still using a product that's drying, well that's why people become dependent on moisturizer. It's the same with the shampoo-conditioner cycle. If your skin is particularly dry, you may want …

  • i'm super lazy and absolutely terrible at planning ahead for things, especially because what i think i want to eat tomorrow today, well tomorrow i may want something different! 1. I don't always eat dehydrated food items. In fact, I mostly don't. An…
  • I love cats, one of my most fave animals ever. However, I don't believe cats should ever be allowed outside (unless on a leash and well supervised). Cats are not native species and are incredibly destructive to wildlife. As was mentioned, it is cat'…
  • hmm I also live in a temperate climate so I'm trying to think about fruits http://goneraw.com/forum/my-concerns-about-high-fruit-diet-temperate-climatethat are grown locally here...local eating is a b**ch when you live somewhere that gets cold for h…
  • i found some raw oat groats at toronto based upaya naturals (an online store). I haven't used them yet because can't really figure out what to do with them...

  • durianrider, the female body during her period/PMS time isn't specifically craving more carbs. The current body of research is suggesting that women don't actually have cravings per se. But what they do have is more negative feelings then (like feel…
  • you could toss nuts with a bit of oil and salt i also really like nut cheeses or you could make a quick roll with ani phyo's walnut meat (it's almonds, walnuts, cumin and a bit of salt) - very quick and easy to make and perfect for a salty craving a…
  • well you don't have to survive on fruit alone. Why don't you try other things in your diet like nuts and sprouted grains and legumes? you could make yourself dehydrated breads and nut cheeses and loads of foods.
  • dates! When I stopped eating refined sugar, I kept dates with me all day long. I gave myself (if I remember correctly) 3-4 dates and like 10 walnut halves for my work day. and would have a bite here, a nibble there... Your body gets addicted to refi…
  • same with "sensational soy" soy milk!!! That one threw me for a loop - wouldn't vegans be a large market for them??? They should at least say "not vegan" on the carton!
  • Food aside, as long as you're doing cardio, you'll lose the fat. And any working out will build muscle (it's not really a swapping that happens. fat doesn't turn into muscle nor vice versa). Common mistake people make is just doing weights and not d…
  • poor diet and weightgain etc can cause heart burn/acid reflux. I went through a period where i was constantly nauseous and my dr said it was acid reflux and prescribed nexium and an antacid. As I was like 23 at the time i refused to be ok with being…
  • I wonder the same thing about non-dried dates. Like they're supposed to be awesome and yet nowhere to be found - at least not where I am. But back to cashews...http://www.upayanaturals.com/Cashews_WHOLE_2_2_lb_bag_RAW_CERTIFIED_ORGANIC_p/nfl-0515.ht…
  • I don't know what to tell you...Seems lots of people eat almonds and cashews raw and don't have any problems. Perhaps the source where you're getting the info that they're "toxic" from has an alternative agenda. or perhaps they mean that eating the …
  • sv3 - omg melon smoothie sounds so so good right about now!!!
  • hmm let's see... breakfast: buckwheat granola with almond milk and chopped apples and walnuts I spent most of the day on the train (5 hours) so during that time I ate: raw banana bread (http://kellysfacesmells.blogspot.com/2009/07/what-im-eating-rig…
  • I've found the most important thing when you're making a diet change to stop eating something, is to have alternatives readily available. So determine what it is you're craving and then make sure to have pre-made raw alts on hand. For example: Me an…
  • that's pretty sweet. I can't even get them to give me a vegan meal. And vegan and gluten-free? forget it! Last time I flew, it was a ham and cheese sandwich. There was actually no part of it that I could eat. At all.
  • Many people and sources say that vinegar is a no-go for fighting yeast overgrowth/candida However, while I think avoiding balsamic and wine vinegar is a good idea (are those even raw? maybe that's moot for this group...), I do not believe apple cide…
  • instead of using a juicer, my father in law puts his fruits in the blender. Not even smoothie style, as he adds no milk or anything. Just the whole fruit and water. That way you'd be using more of the fruit and probably be getting more from your fru…
  • hmmm i guess it depends on what you plan to eat. there's the standard eat seasonally, that always keeps things cheaper. Of course, it's a bit hard (for me at least ) to eat seasonally in winter (because i love lettuce and other summer-y veggies). Bu…
  • I've often wondered about how much energy it consumes, especially as you often need to run it all night... Ok I think it works like this: 700W = .7KW so running it for 1 hour would = .7KWH (I don't know about where you live but we're charged in Onta…
  • spiced apple pie! And with the leftover spiced apples, add them to some sweetened vanilla yogurt with chopped pecans!!
  • I also find the oil cleansing method helps. Mix olive oi or coconut oil with castor oil (more castor if oilier acne, more of the other oil if drier acne) and massage in circular motion for like 5 min. Step into steamy shower and let steam do its ope…
  • I don't think I've ever had an official peanut butter pie...but I find it's not too too difficult to turn cooked recipes into raw ones. What's in a typical peanut butter pie? I'd just make a chocolate nut crust and fill it with maybe a layer of nut …
  • also I think it's safe to say that many of us face criticism about our food styles from enough people in our every day lives who are SAD. And that part of the reason we joined this forum is to have support not MORE people criticizing us and pushing …
  • Hey pearjoy (cute name!!), Most of the nut recipes can be made with pumpkin or sunflower seeds instead (with regards to pates, creams and cheeses), hemp seed is quite good also. I love salads (always have), especially with sprouts. And I really like…
