New to Raw
I am currently researching dehydrators, plus recipes and ingredients to use.
I rather like the idea of being able to make raw flaxseed crackers and the like. I think it would help me get completely off bread which is my sticking point right now. I gave up all other cooked grain products and all other wheat but I just need something else to munch on to go the whole hog.
I gather not all nuts and seeds are raw so it seems pointless to splash out lots of cash to end up with something that isn't really raw.
I have found some sites sell nuts which they describe as raw but I haven't seen 'raw flax seeds.'
Is this because flax seeds are normally raw anyway or am I looking in the wrong places?
Someone told me you can sprout flax seeds so therefore they must be raw? Is this true? Can I assume anything that would sprout or grow is raw?
Would be very grateful for any information to help me take the next step forwards. Thankyou for reading.
So I've been eating raw for about a month now. Originally, I decided to do this because I wanted to lose weight. But now, I've fallen so in love with this life style that I want to eat this way for the rest of my life! So far, I've lost 11 pounds, and I'm very excited about that! The only problem is, I've been slipping up lately. Eating a meal a day that wasn't raw. On the weekends sometimes, I'm starting to eat even 2 meals that aren't raw. I really want to stop this, I guess that's on me. I also feel like because I'm losing weight so quickly, I'm getting flabby because I don't excersize much. What should I do? I can't run, but I'd love to have a toned look to my body. Any suggestions to these two issues? Thanks (:
i live in a rural area so i do not really get to the store very often due to the distance ... i am planning on getting items delivered that i order online ...
are there any recommendations from any of you on where you purchase things such as bulk nuts and seeds ?
also, i would like to store these in the freezer. do you know of any affordable containers that will hold five pounds ? or since it is only me should i just get one pound ? how many pounds do you usually purchase ?
thank you very much .......................
