  • Yeah we're in process of building our garden right now so once we get that goin I"m sure it'll be easier. Thanks for the input
  • maybe you could try organic corn. i know it's not great to eat it all the time but i'm sure every once in a while wouldn't hurt.
  • yeah i've been reading a lot on there but it's only positive feedback, which isn't a bad thing, but sometimes you want the whole story. I know it couldn't have been raw incredible energy from day 1. i mean there had to be some kind of detox involove…
  • I personally gained weight on raw food...making me a bit more overweight than I was before. I think everyone is different. Some people thrive on raw food and some don't. After giving low fat, low fruit 100% raw a valiant effort I found 100% is just …
  • my fave is jicama fries. just peel and slice the jicama into french fry shapes...I think i added chili powder, a little nama, cumin, lime and some other seasonings and left them in the dehydrator for about an hour. So freaking good
  • I don't know if anyone has suggested this because I didn't have time to read all the replys but if you are seriously interested in nutrition, I would recommend reading The China Study. It's the bigges and most comprehensive sudy on nutrition ever do…

  • maybe i will try to soak them - just to see what happens. I tried to blend them with pretty much the same stuff you suggested and I ended up with something resembling baby food. It was really good, but it turn out as pea puree. Thanks for the sugges…
  • mmmm....raw brussel sprouts. I haven't thought of that and it sounds absolutely delicious. The worm....not so much. I probably would have thrown up. Were the brussels organic? b/c if so you can at least delight in the fact that the worm probably was…
  • I totally agree with waterbaby about just relaxing during this process. If you overwhelm yourself it can be very daunting. I know it's not hard, because if you're at all like me you all the information you can get which is good but gets very confusi…
  • waterbaby, I think I've probably been using less salt than normal...I thought about that. I've been drinking lots of green juices with chard, kale, and dandelion greens (not necissarily together) and I heard somewhere today that because of all the f…
  • I've seen tamarinds and always wondered about them....how do you actually go about eating them? they look like a brown bark covered pea pod right?
  • Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments! I feel so much better...I'm literally smiling right now. It's good to know I'm not the only either. Yay! You guys rawk!
  • Thank you so much for all of your comments and advice. The past fews days at work have not been super easy but they haven't been as hard as I thought they would be. I figured out that if I just don't taste anything I won't feel the need to keep on t…
