I've read this article before, and I really agree with it. "As rawfoodists, we eat what seems to be a vegan diet, but when we can no longer stick with it, unless we already have a strong vegan motivation, we typically revert to being omnivores again, not to being vegans who eat both cooked and uncooked food." This is very true. So many people come into raw veganism with no conv

Pineapples can't ripen after being separated from the bush, so it is best to only buy the ones that really look and smell ripe. I'm so glad I can have a wide variety of local, organic mangoes, for free a lot of the time, but if I was moving back to a different climate, I wouldn't eat the imported tropicals at all.

This a picture of my white pineapples (a low acid, sweeter fruit with white flesh,) from yesterday. They will be my food, pretty soon. I hope your camping trip goes wonderfully, kwan.

There is no such thing as "masculinity"; no one is "more masculine" and therefore a "better" person of their gender than anyone else. Using stupid, baseless concepts to try to make people be a certain way (or projecting onto them that they are a certain way) just because they were born with testicals is a very disgusting habit. I'm sure that boys born into an envir

Perhaps raw food will cure the family's amnesia of how they physically abused their son at a young age, and make them more sympathetic, accepting human beings. But, reading the responses here, I see that won't happen. It is none of your business to "cure" someone's brain because you don't personally prefer the way they act; furthermore, a child's body is sovereign in deciding what

Panels start solar power revolution! The holy grail of renewable energy came a step closer yesterday as thousands of mass-produced wafer-thin solar cells printed on aluminium film rolled off a production line in California, heralding what British scientists called "a revolution" in generating electricity.

Your durian definitely looks pretty dry and rather pale - I've had one like that before, and it wasn't the best. You may just have to try again. Was this a local durian? I've been really wanting to find one lately myself.

I like the perspective here: , which states that, ultimately, the STORY of santa clause is not ruined by the fact that it isn't a true story. So, you could tell your children the story of santa clause, and they can enjoy the story, and you can act and play out the good parts of that story with them, and all without lying. The fact that I knew there weren't mermaids didn't ruin the story 'the li

That is definitely true, F1; the search for the "ideal, perfect, best diet" is ultimately just an intellectual one, devoid of any real connection to the body and it's feelings, so it isn't actually going to stay with a stable, healthy diet over the long term - because I guess that would mean just facing life beyond the food. I'm glad I'm not on that sort of quest - high fruit/low fat f

I don't like these 'vintage' testimonials by people who go back and forth between fruitarianism, raw veganism, and who knows what over many years at a time, with plentiful mention of binging and a lack of consistency. But sure, whatever, if one time he ate only salads and thus only slept 3-5 hours a night and he liked that, then good for him. But such an anecdote is really not worth anything to

"I have heard many raw fooders say that they do not heal as fast as they used to on raw" Oh? That sounds like something people new to the diet in their detox period and panicky might go on about. I heal faster now than on cooked food, and the long-term people I know say the same. Green smoothies and juices are good, light, forming foods, but ultimately your body is going to heal a

I agree with people like coco in their responses to this thread, but I also want to say that I definitely -do- support activists destroying fields of genetically modified corn, as such non-food seriously threatens the way of life, livelihood, and health of us all, farmers or not. African nations have, also, refused "donations" of GM corn and other grains, so people should not be growin

Unfortunately, the dates in the whole foods bulk section are likely to be moist and shiny not because they are non-dried, but because they have been steamed. The veganic, truly raw, fresh dates from the date people, however, are just coming into season, and are cheaper than whole foods: . As a food, good quality dates are fine on their own, or wrapped in greens (stuffing them with a littl

I'm glad someone finally suggested that perhaps this persons skin condition came back as a part of the detox they are undergoing since starting 80/10/10. That seems to be the obvious conclusion here, not an allergy to a fruit or genetics! When first going on such a cleansing diet, this sort of reaction is normal; and 8/1/1 is a lot more cleansing than 70% raw is. If that is the case, your skin

Back when I paid any attention to shazzie, I remember her writing that her raw diet of huge amounts of chocolate, maca, and fat "no longer worked" (and she wondered why) once she became pregnant, so I doubt she would recommend it to anyone else. I think raw chocolate is a recreational drug, and so just like cooked food people might give up drinking and drugs while pregnant, so chocolat

Yes, the privatization of public transportation always ends in higher prices, fewer passengers, and more pollution. I wish more countries would take Sweden's lead, but that just doesn't seem to be happening; not in England, and most definitely not america, where people act as if there are no solutions yet except for ones that need decades and billions of dollars while we just go on as things are

You can look through the catalog here www.organicvolunteers.com before signing up (paying gives you the host's contact information, but their ad and the woofer feedback is all viewable.) In my experience it is possible to find situations which will support a high fruit organic raw diet; but it takes investigation and inquiry.

...Actually yes, I once lost over one hundred pounds by simply changing my diet and often never even moving enough to leave the house for months at a time. "Exercise" has little to nothing to do with weight loss. But another factor other than a mechanical view of eating that no one else has brought up is the emotional factor.
