Can someone tell me how to make raw kale taste good?

I have found that eating that thin brown skin poses no problems. It's barely noticeable to me, anyway.

Sodoff, do you actually like the taste of the purslane that grows wild like a weed in most veg. gardens, or are you talking about some sort of cultivated purslane? The wild stuff I can't get down; it is slimy and sour, the one-two punch. What a combo!

HygieneGuy - you summed it all up perfectly. 100%. By the way, since we are talking about juicing leafy greens here - - do you find that they taste unbelievably bad, even when some Granny Smith Apples & lemon juice are added? I just juiced some Creasy Greens (land cress) & turnip tops & parsley plus a few other things straight from the garden, and I am sure this cocktail is might

A naturopath advised to just put your beans in a thermos jar, pour v. hot or just-boiled water in, and seal it up for several hours. He said this improves the digestibility greatly, yet the beans would still be able to sprout in some cases. I do like this method of sort-of-cooking. It is easier than sprouting, and the beans taste mighy good. Better than raw sprouts, which don't do anything fo

I believe that there are different varieties. Some are bred specifically to taste good and to be good for you, also. This is what I hear. I will have to look it up further. OK - I looked it up in my seed catalogue. They say that the type of amaranth green called Calaloo (I believe this is a common food in the Caribbean countries) can be eaten in a salad, i.e., raw. Maybe some of you were

Insecurity (i.e., enslavement to the opinions of others and wanting to fit in) is not attractive. Have you ever seen a woman with breast implants? They look stupid. They look like you stuffed a pair of large baseballs into your shirt. When you lie down, they point straight upward, like antiaircraft guns. Geeze.

Bliss, you surely must know other newish mothers who are as up-and-down and borderline exhausted as you. I had virtually no help and suffered badly for years. You must somehow get some help. If you are nursing your baby (aka "breastfeeding" you need lots, and I mean LOTS, of nutrients. Twice what would sustain you before you get pregnant. I hope you won't hesitate to look into thi

I am sorry to hear that you have had such a tough row to hoe! (How do you like the agricultural metaphor...) When you refer to being the only one "contributing to newborn's livelihood", what do you mean? Are you talking about the day-to-day physical care? Or do you mean financially? In any case, in a decent, sane, sound society, a woman alone would be expected to do neither on h

Bliss, what kind of support have you been missing out on for being a single mother? I am curious. I am a married mother and my experience is that the issue is not so much married VS single motherhood, but rather is she "working"? That is, is the mother working for cash outside the home, or does she work at home raising the children and managing the household? This latter being is, i

Tks. for your posts, both of you. As to devolve VS evolve, well, that is something that could be discussed and debated far into the night. It is true that we are superior in some ways as a result of agriculture, cooking, and the consumption of salt (NaCl as a separate mineral, not just the organic sodium in plant foods). There are some food historians/philosophers who say that the consumption o

Very well expressed, Planta. But nobody has ever been able to tell me why, oh WHY some rawfooders are hell-bent on being not 80%, not 90%, not even 99% raw - but they feel they just have to be 100% raw or else it means something is "wrong", something is just not the way it should be. That is the equivalent of people insisting that, because the human race discovered fire and began cook

I read TB's entire voluminous site. I don't agree with everything on it, but I think he may be right that there really is a condition referrred to as "orthorexia". This is a mental state in which the sufferer stubbornly sticks with a diet that is obviously not suitable for him or her. For my part, I felt weak, could hardly walk, on all-raw. The desire for some cooked was too great,

Agreed! But virtually all people who eat a certain way - omni diet/vegeterian diet/vegan diet/rawfood diet/various permutations and combinations of these - may one day find it does not work for them anymore. Tom Billings is saying that when your diet no longer "works" for you, maybe some changes are in order. That is how I see his point of view. And, yes, a cooked food diet is poiso

Sorry, friends, but Tom Billings is not all wrong. The fellow who wrote that long article dissecting TB's views, has produced the most astonishing case of high dudgeon that I have ever encountered, anywhere. He attacks TB for not giving complete information about fruit, but that is not true. Last time I looked at TB's site, he clearly explained the vast difference between the modern, over-ju

Aren't there lots of illegal immigrants from Mexico who, from what we are told here in Canada, are anxious to do this kind of labour? How big is a flat? How long would it take an average worker to pick one? How large are mulberries, anyway? Just off the top, this seems like low wages for hard work. I have picked berries of all kinds, and it is hard work. Wages need to be good to exert y

If you've only just started a purifying diet, I think that it is okay to not have menstruation for a couple of months. But it should re-start sooner or later as you become more and more healthy. If it goes on for 6 months, then I would start to wonder, and maybe get tested for nutritional deficiencies. But right now, keep up with good eating and lifestyle, and best of luck to you.

For soft seeds, such as sesame, a ridged, traditional Japanese ceramic bowl called a suribachi with a wooden pestle is the cat's meow. I am not 100% raw, so I love to make a trad. garnish called Gomashio in such a device, where you crush the roasted seeds together with some good quality true sea salt. Yum. It is supposed to be a garnish, but I can't stop eating once I start.

No need to follow any one way of eating just because it works for some people. Many people do well on all-raw if they are coming off a rich, cooked, meat-centered or egg & cheese-centered diet. Then all the nutrients in those foods that have been stored up in your body are gone after a few years and you start to feel bad. If cooked food (easy to digest kinds) and some animal product (che

You're welcome. Please let us know how this works for you. In general, if you consume food with an acid, such as vinegar or lemon juice, that sometimes is sufficient to get the protein and minerals in the food into a digestible state. But of course some foods don't taste good with vinegar or lemon, so that is where you would try Betaine Hydrochloride.

I don't think that all foods were meant to be consumed raw (unless you are an animal). Some foods are just too hard to digest in the raw state. Mike's salt & lemon treatment might help for some people, a good suggestion.

Ranitidine is a prescription drug and ephedrine - you know this drug, for sure - it is a purified, concentrated version of a herb, with serious side effects for some people. In any case, HCl pills, such as Betaine Hydrochloride, are both effective and safe. And cheap. And available at the health food store.
