  • The University of Michigan is an ultra-liberal college and an amazing education! Ann Arbor is a really neat town old school feel with a very modern edge and they have two Whole Foods, one is almost brand new, and I believe that one is the biggest in…
  • I don't put anything on my skin that I couldn't eat so I stick primarily to drinking water, the carrot pulp face cleanse, coconut oil (I order mine through drbenkim.com's web site, out of all the ones I have tried, I like that one the best) on my el…

  • I make all my own baby food. I have an eleven month old son, I still nurse him on a regular basis I use either my food processor or Champion juicer. I started with organic carrot juice around 6 months, and I only give it to him after he has nursed, …
  • You're welcome! I hope you had a great day and I know what you mean...I went to a fall party yesterday and ate stuff I normally wouldn't and I've been dizzy and just not feeling myself today. It's amazing once we get our bodies cleared of junk how s…
  • I'm going to be Sandra Dee from Grease...pink poodle skirt n all and my sister, her daughters and my daughter are dressing up as Pink Ladies! We don't go trick or treating for a few reasons but always go to a friend's for a big fall party...we shall…
  • Do you mean something to replace mashed potatoes? Or, a diet in general...or?? And, the seniors at the nursing home where my children and I volunteer in the adopt-a-granny program LOVE fruit, in fact, they are always trying to talk us into sneaking …

  • Gia, Welcome! Wow, that's a huge step to up and move, especially out of the country, on your own...if you can accomplish that, you can tackle this whole raw thing no problem eh! Lol, sorry, I'm from northern MI and I think we say "eh" more than most…
  • I try to incorporate fermented foods in my diet at least once a week, it may not be for everybody but I love how much my digestion has improved by adding this natural source of good bacteria into my diet. This is the method I use for sauerkraut (whi…
    in Fermented?? Comment by juicefastfan
  • I just finished a juice fast not too long ago so it will be a bit longer before I do a fast/feast again but I wanted to send ya out some encouragement and a good luck!!
  • There are quite a few posters on here that have been very open about their struggles with eating disorders and their experience with the raw lifestyle, and I really hope they answer so they can share that with you =). The only advice I can really gi…
  • Ditto for me, I only soak nuts overnight if I'm going to be making them into a nut butter the next day. Otherwise about 4-6 hours is my normal soak time.
  • Thanks sv3...I'm not even 100% raw but I find that if I eat any cooked foods during holidays its really hard NOT to go all out and eat pretty much everything cooked! So, I have experimented over the last 5 years and have found if I go all raw, I sta…
  • My Thanksgiving Menu: I'll be using a Raw "Almost Turkey" recipe I have and love, Raw Asparagus with "Cream" Sauce, Raw Broccoli & Cauliflower with "Cheese", Raw Winter Squash, Raw Corn Chowder, Raw Banana Cream Pie, Raw Pumpkin Pie, Vanilla "Fl…
  • Very true, and when you build muscle, it is just building muscle on top of the fat first. Yoga, Pilates, toning type exercises, leg exercises with resistance bands would be really helpful as it will help lose inches and burn fat. Another thing you c…
  • It really does depend on what you're using each one for. I juice solely for the health benefit...not too replace a meal, or for the fiber, just the added nutrition I can get from a single glass of juice. Green smoothies are very much a meal for me, …
  • Last night I went searching for a good recipe for 'nana milk and found this one...tried it with our lunch today and LOVED it: Creamy Banana Milk: 1 quart distilled water 1/2 ripe banana 1/2 - 1 cup raw sunflower seeds 3 Tbsp organic raisins or 4-5 d…
    in Raw Soy Milk? Comment by juicefastfan
  • ilive...you might be getting hormonally charged from soy because it mocks the estrogen in your body creating havoc on your hormonal balance...LOL the cankle thing is beyond me, I can't even venture a guess for that one. Sorry!
    in Raw Soy Milk? Comment by juicefastfan
  • Banana milk! Doah! Why haven't I made banana milk?!?!? LOL, I make the banana "milk"shakes for a treat ya think that at some point it would have hit me to take it one step further and just make banana milk! Ugh...this one deserves another "DOAH!"
    in Raw Soy Milk? Comment by juicefastfan
  • I think the only soy I touch, and its on rare occasions is tempeh, otherwise, I, too would recommend staying away from anything soy. I love raw almond milk, but have never had the chance to try hemp milk. I'll have to look into that, see if I can fi…

  • Liger, have you ever tried journaling to see if certain emotions lead up to a day of binging? It may help to see if certain emotions trigger a binge, or following a binge what emotions you are experiencing. I love to journal because it seems to open…
  • If I remember right germin, Jordan Rubin (I think he talks about it in a couple of his blogs) is a big fan of this stuff, and used it almost daily as part of his health regime when he was battling Chron's. I've never tried it, but I've been curious …
  • Lol...did you get a bunch of hits for marijuana?? I did the last time I searched something about "joint pain". I did have this happen to me during a juice fast I did. My lower back, right above my hip bones ached so bad and my back would spasm out i…
  • A "fizzy" drink we do on very special occasions, usually just on holidays, is juice apple and pears, add (we start at 1/2 tsp and up it to taste) raw honey/agave nectar/brown rice syrup (whatever sweetener you feel comfortable with) and then we add …
  • Ohhh, that sounds good! My mom used to make Lemon Squares when I was a lil one, they were totally SAD, right down to the powdered sugar sprinkled on top but ohhh soooo good. I never even thought to try a raw version. I may have to steal this idea Of…

  • Oxalic acid found in spinach, cabbage, swiss chard, kale etc...is one of the elements that contribute to the peristaltic motion...so too much may contribute to the "no fun runs", but I think you would have to eat an awful lot to get to that point. I…
  • If this is continously happening right after you start transitioning back to raw or fasting, it could be just a detox symptom you may have to ride out until your body becomes balanced again. Strong and/or unsteady emotions are a big sign of your bod…
  • Oh yeah, and I forgot to add that all the health problems/symptoms you described are almost textbook symptoms of Candidiasis or excess Candida albicans. You may want to google symptoms and cleansing programs you can do to get your intestinal flora b…
  • Another thing you mat want to check out are the food chemical additives...MSG (monosodium glutamate and sulfites/sulfates) MSG is famous for causing panic attack-like symptoms in people, in fact, it even has its own "syndrome"...the Chinese Food Syn…
  • Invite them for a movie night and then play Super Size Me :D...if anyone can shut 'em up about hamburgers (especially from McD's!) it's good ol' Morgan!
