Hi SA lfrv's ;) I'm moving back to SA in a week... I will be backpacking and taking some time out to find my natural state again and heal. Could you guys guide me on the best places to buy cheap,…Continue
I am also waiting to hear how the JoZi fruitfest went!
@Julie: Did you have the fruit festival in Joburg earlier this year? Hope it went well!
@Goldiegirl: I am aslo regularly surprised by the low quality of fruit in the chain stores. And Woolies expensive "ripe" fruit is of course anything but. I do better shopping at independent fruit and veg shops. Otherwise I keep it very simple when buying from the supermarkets - papaya, grapes, oranges (almost in season again!). Big supermarket bananas usually go from not ripe to complete over-ripe.
Anyway, good luck!
Hi Katie, a Cape Town meet-up will be great. Not sure if it's happened before. I have not met anyone else in this area yet who is LFRV or trying to be.
Stay in touch!
Hi Lydia, yes assuredly we must have a get together as soon as I'm over that way or yourselves are over this way. I am fully raw EXCEPT for living near to my family's damn bread bin. I can't believe I ever ended up with this boring habit. Soon I'm going to do Essie Honiball's 21 Day Start and really walk the talk. We can encourage each other along the way. I can't use 30BAD as my own personal mouthpiece so I've got the Vygiestreet.blogspot.com and the latest post is about the 21 Day Start and also has the link to Essential Reading for anyone who wants to overcome a habit.
Here's the link http://files.meetup.com/871966/Thought%20Vibration.pdf
Perhaps we can even have a get together sometime that involves all of Cape Town's LFRV's? Has this already happened over the years?
Thanks for all your posts!
We are long-term vegetarians / vegans and have eaten a high fruit diet for the past ten years. I’m trying to take it to all the way 100% high carb raw.
We live in Somerset West, so please do send a message if you are coming our way again.
All the best!
Gee guys well this sure is a quiet group. I'm just writing in in case anyone has already picked up that A Fruit Eater is Born IS the translation of Skokkende Goeie Nuus. More than that, its one of the most excellent books I've read on raw food, have just re read it. No Mrs Honiball has not been a fruit eater for a long time. The reasons why are spelled out in her book, let it be a lesson to all of us, to take old and mouldy food onto a clean body is outright dangerous, she ended up losing part of her anatomy to surgery. I got a biblical style affliction from drinking coffee on a clean body.
We are very fortunate to have Essie living nearby and intend to "ride the bicycle she built" as far and long as possible. Our attempts to start a fruit movement are detailed in VygieStreet.blogspot.com.
Have a lekker day!!
South African friends I am translating Essie Honiball's book Skokkende Goeie Nuus into English and have put my beginning pages up at VygieStreet.blogspot.com. Please if your Afrikaans is anything half decent or you are indeed one of this minority group then pop along and correct my misinterpretations and help with the yellow highlights.
The post is called The Enough!ers Club and is about the Bloemfontein Hokaaiers who were about 30 people in 1998. Does anyone know what happened to this group and these people? Does this mean we have 30 bloemies somewhere of 15 years 100% raw?
Hello dear Saffies,
If you want to follow the adventures of the Fresh Fruit Fan Club then check out VygieStreet.blogspot.com, where all the highs and lows are being recorded.
Hi guys, just to introduce myself, name's katie and I've been following this way for just over ten years now. please don't think that that's ten years of hundred percent.. I wish! Social situations have had me fall from the highest highs.
so lately what I'm up to is I've opened a Salad Bar in our local market. To help the ppl get the point behind the salad bar I've also started a free newsletter called the Vygie Street, Journal of the Fresh Fruit Fan Club. I'm putting the finishing touches on April only now. But the point is to let people know what the point is. You won't believe the recommendations I get, what salads to serve.. stuff that is just cooked carbs, cold, and full of animal things. I did give in for a split second when we were losing money hand over fist and I allowed in fruit salad with muesli and yoghurt, found myself eating a lot of muesli and yoghurt and have lost a lot of family support now because I discontinued our only real seller. I thought it confused the public about our ethos. I want to try having an open self service buffet, rather than serving the salads into containers at home, see how that works out.
Anyway, the salad bar isn't to make money though I hope it will, but to find/make more raw SAffies. I'm learning a lot about the market scene and meeting lots of people. This Sunday is a special event, up at the nature reserve they are holding a mind body spirit expo and I'm the only one catering. What a relief to not have to compete with coffee and pancakes. At the hall everyone is having a talk about their area and raw food is at twelve thirty, right over lunchtime, and I'm doing the talk. ''
So there is a lot of potential here in Hermanus, I think we are going to get together enough people to do a monthly get together, social issues have been my downfall, not cooked food because I'm very happy on just fruit. So what I want is a social life around me that is people of like mind.
I've been reading the South African page here for a while, but now have actually joined thirtybanaans so I can fill you guys in on the soon to be rocking raw food scene in Hermanus. Julie, I checked out your blog and before and afters, you must be so happy to be renewed. Goldiegirl we also have lots of apples here and I don't know how you feel about dessicated coconut, but we are going to spiralise apples on Sunday and sprinkle coconut, cinnamon and raisins on, for the kids. And me! I wish South Africa grew real coconuts though.
So lots of love, guys, and wish me LUCK for Sunday,
here's the Vygie Street VygieStreet_Vol_1_Issue_1.pdf
and here's some pics of the salads we served when I was doing the Pint idea . ok well I'm only having success at uploading one pic, so this is it, butternut noodles with pesto, tomato and sweetcorn. You won't believe how divine this salad is. I'm sure the whole thing is going to take off once we start spiralising in public though.
Welcome to30 Bananas a Day!
