Fruit •Fruit is about 60-95% water, so it's great for hydration after a long sleep. •Eating fruit on an empty stomach enables us to absorb more nutrients. •Fruit is easily digested and has steady rate of health sugars, so it's a great boost of energy to start your day. It will help your blood sugar, so you're not so cranky and irritable in the morning. •From the hours of 7am to 11am, your body goes through the heaviest phase of detoxification. Fruit is full of fiber and water to help cleans your digestive track. •Fruit has a bunch of great nutrients and minerals to start your day off right. Eating fruit will also boost your immune system and prevent against cardiovascular disease. The vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients will tell the brain it’s satisfied causing the hunger signal to stop. •Fruits like berries, grapefruit, lemon, orange, apricots, and melon boost your metabolism, so you can sleep better, have more energy, and feel firmer.

B-12? I've been incorporating more raw foods into my diet and feel great. I have Ani Phyo's 15 day fat blast and was thinking starting it in the new year and then consume a combination of raw and cooked vegan foods after, but one nutrient I'm concerned about is B-12. I suppose I could just keep taking a multi-vitamin, but I was wondering if there is a raw vegan source of B-12? Ani doesn't seem to cover this. Post Date: 08/13/16, Replies: 2
Excalibur Food Dehydrator I am considering getting a food dehydrator, particularly Excalibur (4 tray). Is there anyone here that uses it regularly, that can encourage or discourage me from getting it? I am not looking to go fully raw, but I really want to incorporate that into out life in a significant way. I have a cook book that I like, and many of the recipes call for food dehydrator. (Going Raw by Judita Wignall) Thank you in advance. Post Date: 08/09/16, Replies: 3

Nutrients and exercise I'm addicted to running. My blood levels are good except for my iron, but I've always had low iron. I know if my iron is too low. I've recently thought about going raw vegan (right now I'm Rawtill4), but my parents won't allow it. I'm really lost, because I'm also wondering if it's such a good idea. As a seventeen year old who can't go a day without running, has low iron, and worries about calcium intake, how do I do it? Should I wait to go raw, and how much will I need to eat if I'm running seven plus miles a day? (I'm training to be an ultra runner, so sometimes it's fourteen miles once or twice a week and moving up)? Post Date: 01/18/16, Replies: 1
Aack! Tofu! Hello everybody! I've been wanting to ask advice on how to start liking tofu. The problem is, I used to eat it just fine but one day I decided to make tofu nuggets. I must have messed up the cooking something fierce, as I ended up getting tofu tummy. Now every time I try to eat it, my body gags reflexively. The only time where it isn't an issue is when the tofu is prepared by a chef, but even then I can only stomach so much. I really want to get used to and like tofu (or tempeh)! It's cheap, easy to prepare, and versatile. Plus, it makes it easy when visiting relatives. Does anyone have any ideas to curb my tastes back to tofu? All your help is appreciated, thank you!

RAW foods are Living for You All Fruits and Vegetables have living enzymes in them that aid the phytonutrients to the cells of your body. Even when you lightly steam vegetables you kill or damages the enzymes. Cooking your food changes your food and your body doesn't recognize the food. Which activates your immune system to fight off this foreign object you've put in your body. If your diet is 51% cooked food, out of habit your body activates your immune system every time you eat. Weather it is cooked or RAW. This is over working and weakening our immune systems and that's why the medical and medicine industry has sky rocketed so high. Your RAW fruits and vegetables are ALIVE and waiting to serve you in the best way. They are a living to aid your digestion, heart health, vision, skin liver and the rest of your body. That's what food is for, your nutrition and development. Take care of your body by putting in RAW fruits and vegetables!!! Tell me what you think about this topic I love discussions. :) Adam Blend It Healthy www.blendithealthy.com Post Date: 02/20/15, Replies: 0

broccoli, kale, bok choy bad for thyroid? I just read that eating the above veggies raw cut off the iodine and stunt the thyroid. My wife and I are eating so many of these foods raw. Our green smoothies and also spinach, collard greens etc. We are newly raw and want to lose weight. So far we haven't lost a thing and I am scared that we will be messing up our thyroid, thus making it even more difficult to lose. We are putting in our calories and are between 1300-1600. We have never eaten better and are feeling so frustrated. Post Date: 01/18/15, Replies: 3

Raw Food Reality http://www.drmcdougall.com/medical_nutrition.html I don't want to rain on the raw food parade... BUT I encourage everyone interested in following a 100% raw food diet to read the Dr. McDougall nutrition link above. The McDougall Diet (human being diet) is based on "starches" and, though I enjoy raw food, most of it is fats and sugar (nuts & fruit). I definitely enjoy raw food restaurants and raw veggies, but the majority of my diet is based on starch. If you take the time to read Dr. McDougall or visit his clinic I think your's will be, too :) Post Date: 07/03/14, Replies: 7

Sprouted Brown Rice- Whats it all about? "What is sprouted brown rice?" "How do you sprout rice?" "What's the benefit?" "Is it healthier?" These are all typical responses I get the first time I tell someone about or show someone sprouted brown rice. While most of us are unfamiliar with sprouted brown rice, sprouting rice is actually a very simple idea. Sprouted brown rice is simply brown rice that is tricked into thinking that it's time to grow into a plant. We place brown rice in a warm, humid environment which encourages the germ (the corner of the rice kernel where life begins) to start the growth process. The rice kernel effectively flips a switch, where its sole purpose is now focused on creating new life. The germ begins pumping vitamins, nutrients and amino acids into the rice kernel in preparation for growth. When the maximum possible nutrition in the rice kernel is reached, we cool it down, locking in all the added vitamins, nutrients and amino acids. While there are many different vitamins and amino acids that are increased during the sprouting process, one specific amino acid has garnished a lot of attention: Gamma Aminobuteric Acid (GABA). It's difficult to delve into every benefit of GABA simply because there are so many claims, but the most pronounced claims are that it lowers anxiety and promotes calmness. There are also claims associated with preventing memory loss, helping with hypertension and even claims about overall brain function. There is still a lot of research to be done on GABA, but so far, it looks very exciting and is definitely something to watch. While the added nutrition is exciting, it is only one of the many benefits to sprouting brown rice. Convenience in cooking rice is important, and we all know that brown rice takes longer to cook than white rice. This is because along with the added vitamins, fiber and protein found in the bran layer of brown rice, the bran layer also contains oil, and we all know oil and water don’t mix. Sprouting brown rice however, will soften the bran layer which shortens the overall cooking time, giving you a super healthy option that is also convenient. Another benefit aside from nutrition is taste. Through all the samples we have given away, the feedback on the taste has been one of the most encouraging. People absolutely love the slightly softer and nutty taste the sprouted brown rice provides. As a final note, something that I find very interesting from the standpoint of a rice mill is that sales of brown rice are a mere fraction of sales of white rice. This tells me that while there is a lot of hype and talk about eating brown rice, most people choose the convenience and taste of white rice. White rice is still a healthy option, but I believe that the added nutrition combined with the added convenience and taste of sprouted brown rice could potentially lead us to the day that we can finally say brown rice sales outnumber white rice sales. Of course, you can't just take my word for it. Try it for yourself! Post Date: 12/09/13, Replies: 0
