I think I'm going to bite the bullet and get it done once I can save up for it. I finally saw a photo of someone having the procedure done and it really doesn't look so bad -- not at all like I had imagined. Just a casual examination room, and funny, also never dawned on me that one would be covered with a blanket during. My mental picture prior seems rather... humorous... now, in comparison.

Then you probably wouldn't care much for my crackers. Good luck with the sprouted bread, though. I would love to try essene bread, but can't have gluten. I think I'm going to try making a few warmed, heavier foods to accompany my usual salad. I like the sound of the recipes in Rainbow-Green, especially because it supposedly only takes a couple of hours to dehydrate. It's really not much diffe

You know, I have never eaten a persimmon! I really look forward to trying one. Bananawho, my "bread" recipe is actually a modified recipe of the Basic Crackers from Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine. I just cut down the salt and swap the almonds for sunflower seeds, and then spread the dough thickly. It comes out reminiscent of stove-top flatbread. If that still appeals to you, I'd be

The air is starting to get chilly where I live, the leaves are deeping their hue, and there are all sorts of wonderful autumnal goodies popping up at the farmer's market -- in other words, fall has announced its arrival. So, raw fooders, what are your favorite comfort foods come the cold months? As I've posted before, I'm transitioning, so I still eat steamed vegetables and cooked bea

I regularly enjoy sprouted green lentils, though I haven't been terribly creative with them. Just toss them on salads or with steamed broccoli.

I wouldn't be asking questions if I weren't looking for answers, so thank you for your response! It can be hard to interpret tone from text, but my questions are genuine -- I'm open to your answers. While I have been unsure of the addition of black rice to my diet (as attractive as its nutritional profile/taste can be) I do know that my body responds positively to buckwheat. I get sustainable

I saw this commercial as well. Though I know this is a reality for some, it was still pretty horrifying. Makes me sad that people are being encouraged to feed their families like this.

I do have a spiralizer, which I have used to make "angel hair". I have also used a potato peeler to make "fettuccine", which I did like a bit better. I will try soaking them in lemon juice -- I love lemon, anyhow, so that is definitely worth a shot. As to not craving pasta, well, I don't see how that's an option. Resisting is one thing, which I've been good about (then

I'm curious as to how you've come to this opinion, sincerely. I know that my body is definitely more sensitive to carbohydrates, as I've learned when my RD and I tried to add an extra serving of pseudo-grain or black rice to my diet. After three days, I had a pretty significant flare-up of symptoms. Actually, it has been weeks since and I am still not fully over it. So I can't imagine the consequ

I am working with an RD to help figure out what foods to reintroduce and when. At this point, I do well with small servings of sprouted or cooked pseudo-grains, sweet potato, berries, and green apple. I can also occasionally treat myself to buckwheat pasta and black rice without consequence. These foods were all gradually reintroduced since starting the diet in May. I am also taking prescript

While I love the idea of vegetable noodles, I've yet to really get into them... the crunch ruins the "pasta" illusion for me. I've tried zucchini noodles a few times, and they can be fun in their own right. But the texture doesn't satisfy when I'm craving the real deal. Is there something I can do to make zucchini pasta more enjoyable? Or are there other vegetables that may be more

So I've been suddenly blessed with the means to buy a dehydrator -- I am ecstatic! The general opinion seems to be a nine-tray with timer, which is what I intend to purchase, but I am wondering if I should go for an Excalibur new or try to find one used? Is warranty, etc. worth it with a new one?

This is weird for me. Although I've only started to incorporate more raw foods into my diet, I've been a vegan for going on two years now (and was a vegan through high school before that). Ethical reasons, mostly, though absolutely believe in the health benefits of a whole-food vegan diet. Anyway, I am usually very satisfied with my diet but have recently started to crave animal foods, specif

I'm curious as to which people here eat some percentage of cooked foods, and if so, what they choose to eat and why. Are there any specific foods/cooking methods you choose to eat -- or avoid? Do you eat some amount of preferred cooked foods daily, or just occasionally? Specific situations or times of year?

So I've recently started sprouting and am curious as to which grains and legumes take best to sprouting (and if anyone cares to share any tips!). I've had success with green lentils and buckwheat using the jar method -- I felt very accomplished, actually -- and am eager to try more. Would forbidden black rice sprout? Also, are there any beans/grains that should NOT be sprouted? {As al

I also like sesame milk when I have the option of dates as a sweetener. 2. What are the top 3 dishes/recipes you are planning to make?

I'm a low-sugar, whole food vegan transitioning to a high-raw diet, at least 75%. So far I eat ALOT of green salads, blended soups, vegetable noodles -- basically, foods that don't require alot of prep/clean-up. I love smoothies too, though have to limit sugar and for now just snack on fresh berries or grab a green juice when I want something sweet. I also love coconut ice cream. I use liquid ste

I eat mostly organic, with the only exceptions being produce only available to me conventional or when I'm eating outside my home. In this case, both of the apples I ate recently were organic. I hadn't had issues with apples prior, but two times in a row my mouth was red and itchy. I may try again when local green apples are in season, as these were imported and may not have been as fresh. I'm st

Unfortunately, it is not. I've had these reactions from raw fruits for about two years now, and while I've had no problem eating, say, applesauce or peach pie my lips become red and itchy if I eat them raw. I was wondering if freezing or drying these fruits may make them neutral the way cooking does.

Although I've yet to have this confirmed by an allergist, it seems pretty likely that I have oral allergy syndrome. For people who have OAS, the fruits you're intolerant of - in my case stone fruits, apples - are neutral to the system when cooked. Does anyone else here have OAS? If so, do you think frozen or dried versions of these fruits may be tolerable as well?

I'm trying to eat fewer nuts, but my ideal daily intake is: 1 avocado, 1-2 tbs coconut/olive/flax oil, 1/4c whole nuts/seeds OR 1/2c fermented nut/seed yogurt This does not include seed milks in soups or with breakfast.

I'm also new to this and am gradually adding more raw foods to my diet. As too many nuts/seeds give me stomach issues, I'm learning to sprout legumes for added fullness. I also still eat steamed vegetables and cooked bean soups at lunch or dinnertime -- this is just what works for me. Eating more small meals or snacks throughout the day also helps. I've always had a big appetite, so even with

Ela, I wouldn't have thought of using walnuts but will have to give it a go. I love lemon & dill. Also, thanks Suncloud for the recipe. I'm also kind of surprised by the use of pumpkin seeds. I've always thought of them to have a smokey flavor more suited for "meaty" pates.

I don't often wear make-up, but as I try to purge toxins from my life would like a few recommendations for cruelty-free, non-toxic cosmetics for the occasions that I do. Many natural brands I've looked at are expensive and still sometimes have unfamiliar (and thus, to me, questionable) ingredients. I've also found that alot of lip colors look a bit... muddy.
