Questions about Raw Basics
Ok so I have some questions about things that seem to be important to the whole raw thing.
What exactly is a green smoothie? And how do you make them and how important are they?
What does sprouting mean? Is it something I should learn to do if I am thinking about going raw?
Could someone give me an example of a typical grocery list? I don't buy a lot of fresh food now so I'm looking for something I can use as a starting point.
I take a b12 supplement now, but I'm not really into taking more vitamins and meds than I really need, so is there anything else you would suggest I take?
Sorry there are so many, I just figured I'd put them all in one post instead of littering the forums.
Sprouting can be good and is cheap, but it isn't critical.
About vitamins, get a blood test. If you have any deficiencies try to adjust your diet accordingly. If that solution is not feasible or sufficient, then supplement those deficiencies.
Thanks! Those links were really helpful - I even added the first three to my favorites so I can get to them again easily. Green smoothies sound actually pretty good now that I know they have fruit in them. Good thing one of the only cooking utensils I have is a blender =) . Thanks a lot!

Green smoothies are ace - once you get hooked, there's no going back! Have fun! :-)
