I prefer blending and eat my "smoothie" with a spoon as an "energy soup." Both the taste and the texture seem more soup-like than drink-like.

Had an "okay" week. Nighttime snacking got out of hand again on Friday. I'm changing my monitoring so that "time of night" as well as quantity will be penalized. Too much and too late will both count negatively in my daily total. I will also try to got to bed if I head for the pantry. David

I'm at it again. After "falling off the (raw) wagon" for nearly a year. For the past three weeks I've met my target of 3 days each week of 100% raw/living foods. The other days, I have usually been raw until dinner and then eat a cooked vegan dinner with my wife. On non raw days, I allow 1 coffee and/or 1 alcoholic drink. I have 'slipped' with respect to night-time snaking on some

Have been managing the 80% most days, but no 100% days for more than a week. Also overeating nuts and dried fruit, especially at night. I'm going to try brushing my teeth early in the evening and then "no eating after brushing!"" Anyone out there try this? Does it help? David

Niagara Region of Ontario, Canada. Fairly easy to do raw, but this time of year everything has travelled a good distance to get here. Some basic are available organic, but many are not. For a special treat, we can go to Toronto, about 90 minutes away, where there are a couple very nice raw restaurants. We get there about 6 times a year to visit a daughter. David

Not doing well... Rationalizations are "winning." I'm losing. Bread keeps calling me. At least I put raw almond butter on it. |-( Tomorrow..... NO! the rest of today, I will do raw. David

Karrie, Any of this (also on my thread) sound familiar? Besides the inflation of "tomorrow," the following rationalizations get me into trouble: Well, I've already blown it today, I might as well have..... Well, I rode 'x' kilometres today, I could have this ...... I'll do a fast _____________, so until then, I'll be "flexible." Let's get seriuos TODAY! David

Saturday: Again, really on track until dinner. Invited to friends' house. Cooked vegan food. And I over ate and ate and ate.... Tomorrow will be a similar challenge. Out to a friend's house for dinner. I'd like to be able to enjoy the cooked food without overdoing it. That's my goal for tomorrow night. David

Le Veronique, I make my rejuvelac as follows: I rinse, then soak one-quarter cup each of soft wheat and rye. You can use a half-cup of either, but I like the mix. Soak for 12 hours, in a 1 quart or litre jar, then drain. Sprout for 12 hours. don't rinse. Add filtered water to fill the jar, cover with a soft cloth held with a rubber band. Let sit at room temperature, in a dark place, for

Thanks to all for your comments and suggestions. Karrie, the Pumpkin Seed Patties are from "Dining in the Raw" by Rita Romano, a book I use a lot. Aquadecoco, is there a particular book that describes your approach? I'm at least curious... (cheaper and easier sound good), although I do okay with rejuvalac and dehydrated foods. Today's food: Wheatgrass juice Pomegranit and ap

Karrie, Cravings are odd, indeed. I haven't had any flesh foods in nearly twenty years and, even now, will have an occasional craving for a sausage and the "frying oil" smell of MacDonald's or similar fast food joint can trigger those cravings. I feel fairly "safe" that I will not succumb to the cravings and I am convinced I would be quite ill if I did. Now, if only I can

Tiffany, I think your (and Karrie's) openness is courageous and speaks well of your commitment to taking better care of yourself. I think it is very hard, in our culture, not to be concerned with appearance...even more so for women than for men. Fortunately, there is some overlap between concern for looks and concern for health. I do believe that adherance to a living foods lifestyle, in th

Tuesday: First a note on Sunday/Monday. After I posted Sunday, my glass of wine turned into 3! and I "absorbed" the alcohol with crackers and hummus (cooked). Monday I got back on track with a good 80+% day. Today I've been 99% raw but slipped at the bridge club and ate a couple not very special cookies. My plan is to have two 100% days, tomorrow and Thursday. David

In answer to your question, yourmakingmeitchy: I was quite underweight and sickly as child. My parents rewarded me when I ate and I was often "inticed" with sweets etc. I established a healthy weight during high school, eating heartily and playing lots of sports. At university, an injury curtailed my sports participation. I became quite inactive physically, but kept eating as if

The book "The Thrive Diet" by Brendan Brazier has three recipes for raw burgers that do not require dehydration: Almond Flaxseed Burger, Walnut Hemp Burger, and Pecan Sunflower Burger. They do require a food processor. They are simple and don't require exotic ingredients. David

Karrie, If you are posting all that you are eating, some of your craving might be that you are hungry!! What you post doesn't seem like enough food to sustain you. Try adding a big salad. Maybe a few soaked almonds or seeds. David

Hi all, I'm hoping that regular posting will add one more motive for staying "on program." My goal is to be no less than 80% living/raw food on any given day and to have two to three 100% days each week. The 80% days should give me enough freedom to enjoy social meals and to enjoy the cooked vegan dinners my wife makes. I have a major struggle with nighttime snacking that I will &
