30 Bananas a Day!

Umm, a few days ago, we didn't have any ripe fruit in the house - so I had some a instead... And now I've been craving it like crazy!
I know that it's not terrible, but the carb:protien:fat ratio is a little off, and it's not nearly as nutritios a s fruit, so I obviously don't want to eat a lot of it...
Does anybody have any idea why it is that I'm craving it so badly?!

I once heard someone say "we crave what is in our bloodstream "  

overall quinoa is probably one of the healthiest cooked carb imho. You can rinse off the saponins by soaking and rinsing it. The quinoa will sprout in under 5 hours and once its sprouted it becomes alkaline and the macronutrients break down into sugars,aminos ex..just dont cook it for to long once its sprouted. Forbidden rice aka black rice is another is another high quality cooked carb because it is not as hybrid.

      I soaked, sprouted and rinsed quinoa extremely thoroughly and still got a stomachache from the saponins.  

How do you know that it was the saponins that gave you a stomach ache? I have occassionally eaten quinoa and it has never given me a stomach ache.

I eat quinoa occassionally. I rinse it well and then put 1 cup of quinoa in one quart of boiling water and continue to boil for two minutes. Then turn off the heat, let it sit for an hour and it's done. Is this cooking or soaking? I do not care! I eat whatever I want, and doing this once in a while will make little difference.  

Funny you say that.. cause that happens to me... whether it be apples, oranges, carrots, jicama, potatoes, sweet taters, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, (even bananas...which I totally cannot eat~allergic.) It's like once I get a taste of something, I'm hooked and can't get enough of it! And just want that morning, noon and night! lol It's like I'm addicted to it. Maybe that bloodstream thang has something to it??? My mom says I'm so fickle and weird about my food, maybe it's my addictive personality?? I am sure if I had some millet, quinoa, or rice (which I haven't crossed over and partaken of yet) I would be hooked too! ;)
Maybe you're just hungry for carbs and it's a yummy carb, sooooo therefore, eat up! :)

After our 1 week trial of the high carb cooked vegan forum we have decided to move any discussions about cooked food to a specialised group. It was going well however we can see the potential for the cooked food discussions to overrun the home page and we want to keep the forum on the HC raw vegan track as much as possible. All discussions about cooked food will now be closed and a note added about them being moved to the group. Feel free to discuss high carb cooked vegan foods/meals there.

Thanks for working with us!
