  • how much weight did you lose during the first month?

    for me it wasn't until I went 100% that I lost a lot of weight. I wasn't overweight to begin with, just a bit podgy. After I lost a lot of weight, it came back on over the following months, but my body shape changed. My body was a very different shape than before.

    I have weighed 9 1/2 stones, all my life. I used to be a UK dress size 14, now I am a UK dress size 8-10 and I still weigh the same. Apparently it is all lean muscle, but I don't do any excercise at all at the moment, or for the last year really.

    My bust size has also gone up 2 sizes, and stayed there, since going 100% raw.

  • I want to date a raw vegan.

    have you been on www.giveittomeraw.com ? seems to be a lot of single straight raw men on there ;)

    I know how you feel. I’m lucky coz my husband is raw too, but I was single for 5 years before I met him, I think I deserve him for that long five year wait ;)

    Have you considered going to the Raw Spirit Festival? Or other raw events? I think they would be good places for picking up a raw man. That’s where I’d be if I was in America and single.

    You are beautiful, I am sure there are plenty of raw men who would just Love to be by your side.

  • one year vegan craving meat again

    I was vegan – cooked for 12 years, they were difficult coz I had the worst meat cravings all the time. I felt so guilty for wanting something I believed was wrong. Anyway since going raw the meat cravings have totally gone, it is amazing! I think it is because as soon as I started on raw I ate lots of greens. Meat cravings are a sign of nutritent deficiency. When I was cooked I never ate any raw foods. I suggest upping your greens big time, lots of spinach and broccoli.
    I find protein rich raw foods like pumpkin seeds, spinach, broccoli work best.

  • Enzymes killed in the stomach?

    I know that enzymes are molecules not organisms and I know that they are denatured by high temps and high Ph, but what about happens to them when they get to our stomachs? Some people say that they are destroyed/denatured by our stomach acids and we can’t use them anyway. I am sure I read somewhere that a scientist discovered that we actually absorb enzymes in the mouth way before the stomach, but I can’t find that research anywhere.
    Are enzymes even a factor in the benefits of raw food?
    Anyone know anything about this subject?

  • Alternative to nutritional yeast

    Sorry guys I hadn’t seen this distressing situation till now, Here’s the “Easy Peasy But Very Cheesy” recipe, enjoy!

    Cheese (with Spring Onion)

    2 cups of Sunflower Seeds (soaked)
    1 cup of Pine Nuts
    1 tablespoon Salt
    Juice from 2 Lemons
    1/3 cup raw Olive Oil
    1 bunch of Green Onion, all except roots (diced)

    In your Food Processor, process the sunflower seeds,pine nuts and the salt until mix becomes finest it will go. If it sticks to sides stop processing, open processor and scrape from sides back into centre.

    Then add lemon juice and the olive oil. Process again to make smooth. Scrape from sides if needed. Mixture should begin to “roll” as it moves around processor.

    Add a little water if needed to keep the mixture moving and rolling. Process until smooth, yet very thick.
    Then add the green onion.

    Process briefly to mix in and slightly break down the Green Onion.

    Allow to stand 30 minutes, then enjoy! – note: If you taste it early the lemon taste should stand out. The lemon taste will die down after it sits a bit.
