Raw Foods on Food Network There is a show on Food Network titled \"Have Fork, Will Travel\". On yesterday's episode he went to Jamaica and the last person he interviewed discussed the raw diet and that it originated in Jamaica. He discussed a lot of their ideas about raw, like that the sun is already cooking the food as it is growing so there is not further need to cook the food. Then he made a killer looking pie! Yum! This is a quick explanation of the episode:,3180,FOOD_30217_53081,00.html I hope they rerun it. Maybe it'll be on youtube. It was so awesome to see some raw on mainstream TV!

I Started a garden. My new home was built on the lot where an old gas station existed. The soil seems to be fertile enough, but some of the plants have a most strange appearance and odor. Can hydrocarbons effect the quality of my harvest....and what can i do to eliminate the problem? Post Date: 05/21/18, Replies: 2 05/21/18 2
Raw Foods for healing Hi everyone- Has anyone seen the trailer for "Raw For 30 Days". It's a documentary about Six people who normally eat fast food, who try going 100% raw for a month. It features doctors, experts, and raw foodists who are interviewed including Gabriel Cousens, MD, David Wolfe, and Woody Harrelson. I am new to raw foods and very interested in hearing from others who are raw foodists and people who are trying to change their lives for the better. Many people in my family have diabetes and I have changed my diet and gone raw to prevent myself from also getting diabetes. The trailer on Youtube at: Visit the Raw For 30 Days site at: Post Date: 05/21/18, Replies: 1 05/21/18 1

Raw food website for tips and recipes I started this site when I decided to go raw and wanted to spread the word. I love the raw food lifestyle and have now included a section morblimey as many people were interested in eating healthier food, but didn't want to go 100% raw. morblimey contains cooked vegan recipes, but the main site is raw. Please take a look - I hope you enjoy it. rawblimey - raw food to swear by! Post Date: 05/18/18, Replies: 3 05/18/18 3
Raw food recipe search engine We've started to support raw food searches at Select raw food in the cooking section - near the bottom of the search form. We recommend then adding an ingredient in the must include list, or add alcoholic drinks to the must exclude list to remove most of the cocktail recipes which are technically raw. It's not perfect yet, due to technical difficulties in recognizing raw recipes, but we hope people will find it useful. We'd love to get some feedback so we can improve this feature.

It's in the seeds Hi, Seeds are the most concentrated form of natural, non genetically modified organism nutrition produced in nature known to mankind. Infact a seed contains 30 times more nutrients and antioxidant potencies than the surrounding fruit tissues. Unlocking those potent nutrients by the unique cold press prossess, seperates the seed fibers from the lipids. And harvests all those concentrated antioxidants, essential fatty acids, dissolved minerals, phospholipids and phyrosteriods. 8-10 portions of fruits + 8-10 portions of vegetables + 2-3 portions of omega fatty acids is equivalent to one small sachet of rain pure seed nutrition. Please feel free to contact me to learn more about seed nutrition, feedback stories, tested health benefits and ordering the right product for you. Become energized, revitalized and detoxified from a cellular and mollecullar level. You deserve to live life to the full and feel amazing. Kind regards Stuart Donaldson Your Rain International distributer. Post Date: 05/10/18, Replies: 3 05/10/18 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: 11/21/17, Replies: 5 11/21/17 5

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!

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: 07/22/17, Replies: 2 07/22/17 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: 11/23/16, Replies: 5 11/23/16 5
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 08/13/16 2
