Hello Don,

 

A few weeks ago you suggested a low fat hemp protein powder for people who are not yet consuming enough calories to meet their protein needs. Do you know of one you can direct me to? I have been unsuccessful in my search.

I feel the same way and I don't even know your big sister! :)

I'm having greater success with my diet since I focussed more on getting my protein and calories from raw nuts, avocadoes and seeds.   These are higher in fats than other fruits which add to the calorie count.  This works best as an evening meal and because I know protein needs about 4 hours to clear the stomach, it helps me fight off the snacking urges that have daunted my progress for the last year or so.  I also know the importance of going to bed on an empty stomach so I know that any after dinner snacks will be detrimental to my digestion and my sleep.  Overt fats have a bad name around these parts but in my personal journey, I've found them to be a requirement.

Some vegetables just ask to be eaten raw and others require some sneaking up on.  The trick with most is to buy or pick them when they're small and succulent.  Once they reach what might be considered normal size, some become woody, bitter and unappetizing.  The problem is that supermarkets don't tend to stock them in the younger stage. 

Another trick is to eat lots of tomato with the salad and veg as they give you a break from any blandness.  Don't eat them in the same mouthful as that will just confuse the senses and impair the digestive system's actions.

My sister is the one who told me about 30 B.A.D. and she insisted that before my huge bundle of bananas I just bought become ripe I should start the raw food vegan lifestyle. I love being able to eat all of the fruit I can handle, but my problem is with the veggies. Since I am used to greasy, salty, sugary processed foods, my taste buds don't care too much for so many of the raw veggies. I am running out of ways to become creative with my veggies and I only just started two days ago! Plus, it's hard for me to consume more than 1,000 calories. I need to know some calorie rich foods to help me keep up!!! I'd feel soooo lost if it wasn't for my big sister!

I think I'm staying at my place for dinner, don't feel to secure in this yet. And I want to be in an environment I control, I am still far from 100% raw vegan/fruitarian, but moving in the right direction and want to keep at it making it more and more a habit. But feel a bit vulnerable since I'm at the start of this journey

I have an 811rv friend going in for laproscopic hysterectomy soon. Should they eat any differently preparing for or after the surgery. Such as prunes for a good bowel movement or anything in particular to get rid of the gas afterwards? Any informed or experiential advice is most welcome and appreciated! Thanks! :-)

hi gaby and irlianna thank for your reply, @gaby i tried it raw before but it does taste as good as when its cooked, its like eating raw potatoes. i was just looking for ways to expand my menu since this is my 1st week and the craving pangs are stronger =). @irlianna: i'll probably wont add that saba banana then. =)

Hello princess.schuck, in the part of uses it says that it can be eaten raw or cooked. Have you tried them raw?
