Thank you so much!! I love frozen raw English peas... I appreciate your quick reply. I guess i am going to at least give garbanzos a try. So sorry to hear about your experience with black beans! I just got in some lentils from Sprout People I am going to sprout! Love lentil salad and I can't wait to try this.

Hi! I've been away from raw for quite some time and am transitioning back. I need heavier foods some evenings and want to make hummus and maybe sprouted lentil salads, etc. What is your opinion on eating sprouted raw beans? I read so much conflicting info. I am sure mung beans are ok but I wonder truly about garbanzo and maybe black eye peas.. and black beans? I am doing great with sp

Good Morning! Thank you so much everyone for your input! Interesting about the Tahini. I bet it IS my body just wanting the calories. I should have mentioned I am overweight.. needing to lose about 75 pounds. I am sure my body is needing/wanting the extra fat and calories. I guess I just wondered what everyone else's experience was when transitioning and I feel more assured I am doing o

I am on day 5 transitioning to Raw and I can't stop eating nuts and seeds.. I just ate a third of a jar of sesame tahini (I think my body must really need the calcium because I have been craving tahini for days). I guess I just want opinions on using so many nuts/seeds during transiton. What was your experience? I love fruit and am eating lots but I seem to need the heaviness of the nuts/see

Hi. I'm new here and pretty new to the Raw food lifestyle. I'm really hoping to find a community I can participate in! I managed to go high Raw last Summer for about 10 weeks. I did well, felt well and lost weight but eventually gave up. I am giving it another go. I've felt really drawn back into Raw emotionally as well as for health and weight loss reasons. Today is day 4. I

This is an interesting thread for me right to read right now, I am sure as Prana mentioned I am prob. eating pretty high fat in this transition period. Lots of raw nuts and seed/veggie crackers (dehydrator) and lots of gauc and some raw cacao stuff. I do hope to move into less fat and think over the last few days I am craving more fruit (for longer in the day) and less nuts. Hopefully my b

la_veronique, I agree, I am so in love with red bell peppers right now I think I could eat them for eternity. Oh and we just cut open a papaya from heaven I think. I can't believe how good this wonderful thing is! Luscious.

Banana Who, I am SO FAR from really knowing what I am doing! Also I have only been 100% the last two weeks. I started transitioning on the first week. I still have so much to learn but I am reading voraciously. I guess the only thing that I can offer is that I believe in my heart this is the way we are supposed to eat, and I see others that do this successfully and I have faith in myself t

Thank you for all these! I just got my live food factor in (huge book! Biblical proportions!) I am really enjoying reading the stories in chapter 2 (so far). I have Becoming Raw on order also. Anyone have an recommendations that are books about personal changes in Raw health or weightloss?

CJJ, I love your thinking on cravings "craving sweet, my body needs vitamins (fruit). If I'm craving salty, my body needs minerals (greens)." That really resonates with me! Rawgosia, I have watched you on Youtube! I just had a nice green smoothie for lunch along with some crackers from my dehydrator. I was VERY hungry and this really did the trick! I used a banana and kale an

I am very new (3 weeks in -High Raw) but I am doing well. I wanted to comment that I know many raw foodist don't use a dehydrator or feel a need for it but having mine has really helped my transition. I find myself making wraps (for huge veggie sandwiches) and cracker bread and recently used it to make marinated portobello steaks that were so good I could hardly believe it. I hope th

Well I was so excited yesterday to get my 5# of raw almonds in that I instantly soaked them and now they have had their first rinse and I am afraid I can't think of a thing to do with them. I am brand new to Raw and my mind is blank. My books I have say they will need to be eaten W/I two days and my mind is blank as to what to do with them. I was thinking making almond butter but what do you D

Hi! Thank you for the posts. Vinny, I am brand new to Raw. I tried for a while last summer after reading 80/10/10 but didn't really reach out for support and was hit hard by so many changes and frustrations that I gave in. I need feedback and support and I know it now. I am going to try my best to post every day for the first 6 weeks.. even if I am having a great day.. or maybe espe

Coco, Yum.. I love the idea of the neatballs. I think having a good supply of these concentrated foods and maybe wraps for veggie sandwiches will help! I just put in some nuts/seeds to soak. I think I will add sundried tomato. Wonder about raw garlic in these too. Thank you again.

Hi Gilmore girl. I just wanted to thank you for your helpful post. I guess emergency was not the best word, and maybe some of you don't remember or never had issues with food, I sure do. I struggle every day. I have had binge eating problems for several years and have really learned that being prepared helps, thus wondering what some of you did when you first started to keep the fo

I have read her book. I need a kinder, gentler approach to my food and lifestyle. I have put myself down and talked to myself the way they do in their book quite enough over my lifetime. In all honesty it sounds like some of the talk I have seen on Pro-Ana sites. It was a turn off for me.

Well it's day 8 today!!. I have been as high raw as I could (at least 75% and most days as close to 100% as I can). Saturday for lunch I ate sushi (pretty much all cooked) on an outing with my family and it was the first chosen cooked food meal I ate all week (I say 75% because I am eating allot of nuts and my truly raw nuts have not come in yet). I am SO hungry! I find that the only th

RawLion! Wow, I so loved reading your story. Especially where you said "I'd love to help anyone who may not have the faith to go 100% raw. There is nothing to fear my friends, in fact, you should be deathly fearful of NOT GOING 100% !!! " This is how I want to feel. I am only on day 5. Thank you for posting your pix too... Wow, just wow. You are amazing.

I want to plan ahead and have ideas (and maybe even supplies), recipes etc. that I can turn to when I am having a heavy cooked food craving. I know I can eat cooked food if I really want to but I want to have ideas for raw that I can use instead. I have found the idea of doing several veggies in a nama shoyu and herb/garlic marinate and using the dehydrator to warm them for a few hours an

Utopian life, That is a good point. I think my pre-occupation with "what did our ancestors REALLY eat" comes from previous many months of low carb programming. Its pushed very much in LC circles that it's what our ancestors did.. ie: paleo, primal blueprint, etc. I have heard it so much I still think along those lines and am curious about it still. I do know that I am drawn to

I am dealing with the same issues. I kept my candida at bay with a very low carb diet for the last 7 months (Atkins) and just could not do it anymore. All the fat and meat felt WRONG for my physiology. I am used to a very large breakfast and medium lunch and very small dinner. Right now I am having veggie/seed/nut crackers (made in my dehydrator) with avo, tomato, raw garlic and onion m
