New to Raw
Anybody have any suggestions on shopping sites for food, supplements, natural products, etc.? I recently decided to buy some kelp powder since I don't have a good iodine source in my diet, and ended up using vitacost.com They charge a flat shipping rate, so I shopped around for a few other bits to make the order 'worth it'. Perhaps using Amazon has spoiled me, but anybody know any sites with a good selection that offer free shipping? A minimum order of $25 or so is fine, I've seen some with $99 but that's too much just to get free shipping.
I was wondering if freeze dried food were considered raw.. sicne I see a lot of raw food stores carrying freeze dried products.
Also, how is ice cream raw?
How about unrefined whole cane sugar, is that raw?
i'm new to this raw world, starting off on a trial run of the raw diet for a month.. maybe longer! currently sticking to a 75-80% raw diet, and depending on that transition from the SAD, will potentially increase the raw portion.
quick question: (forgive me if this has been discussed already)
what are your thoughts on tofu? clearly, as a processed/fermented product of edamame, it is not a raw food. i was just wondering if, for those of you who are not 100% raw, you find it to be a good source of protein. or do you prefer to go with raw fish/edamame/nuts etc (based and dependent on your level of veganism)? just opening up a general inquiry about tofu. any thoughts would be appreciated.
Hello everyone, :)
I am very new at raw eating and I'm not a 100% raw. I started to try raw diet and found that It's dficult to me to get as much proeteins as I would like. Could you guys tell me how do you get your protein?
Before I became a vegetarian I was eating lots of beef, milk, eggs and curd. Fours years ago I stoped to eat meat and started to eat even more diary, eggs and soy to get much proteins. It lasted only for few months, I stoped to do training for few years. One year ago I stoped to eat diary, eggs and fish but half of year ago I started to do excersises again and eat more proteins as well. Not that much like when I was 14 but more than average people eat. Now I'm trying to eat more raw but I have some problams with this. I was trying to eat 100 % raw but I was always hungry. Could some one tell me some high protein recipes? I am eating sunflower seeds, flax-seed, sesame ( just I don't know how to prepare that), pumpkin seeds and some nuts to get my protein but I don't know many recipes with that and I feel its not enouth. I would like to get about 1,5 grammes proteins on one my body killo (I weight 50 kilos) with all amino acids but I feel its so impossible right now. Is it possible at all in raw vegan diet?
I would be very grateful to hear your advices and recipes :] ♥ ♥ ♥
which is one better?
I would imagine it depends on the person. Every body is unique and not everyone has the same capacities to digest carbohydrates.
Douglas Graham's diet 80-10-10 recommends mostly fruit for carbs. Some people just can't do that due to candida, spikes and lows in blood sugar, neurochemical spikes and lows, etc. Even lifestyle, like for example if a person does much or too little exercise compared to another.
Our bodies are also different from our ancestors the homo-erectus, and we now have certain adaptations, and even diseases.
Hippocrates Nutrition Program is lower sugar but still an 80-10-10 diet, just lower in sugar. Hopefully not high fat though. Well it might depend on whether the program followed is Brian Clements or others associated with it like Gabriel Cousens, Ann Wigmore, or David Wolfe.
High fat contributes to candida just as much as sugar. Some in Douglas Graham's side think it's more fat than anything else.
I did once spot a good book on the raw diet, and reviewers said out of all the books it was one that did not suggest anyone get expensive equipiment or materials and was simple, and it was a good raw diet program. I don't remember which one it is and I've been looking everywhere for it on amazon.com but it's tiring to look through all the reviews.. I haven't found it yet.
