Yeah I know what you mean! I didn't think i had any problems being 100% LFRV until i realised I had to deal with stress and my emotions without using food. It's even harder once you have some CF though coz it just makes you want more. That's what i found anyways. Don't stress about it though coz that just makes it worse, learned that lesson the hard way! So do what you gotta do and know we are here for you! Mwah :)
I wish I could send you some nanners! i've been able to get em for $3/kg and so they're back in my daily menu. i too get a bit over dates, i think my body is still adjusting to digesting them, i've been peeling my dates after soaking so they are not so hard for me to digest, just means i have to eat more though to get the same nutrients! occasionally i'll make raspberry daterade... u can get frozen unsweetened raspberries in most supermarkets. Good for a bit of variety!
i'm almost coming up to 2 months and i still have days where i cant quite make 3000 cals, i just make sure i eat a lot the next day!
have you tried OJ and celery blended?
i've had the biggest cravings for persimmons the last couple of days, so this morning i rang my produce supplier for my cafe and they said they would look into getting some for me, they said that the moment they are $2 each so $40 for a case of $20 and im like hmmmm i dont know whether my craving is justified spending that much! so they are going to search around for me to try and find cheaper ones! im so excited!
ooooo another fruit ive been adding as an "extra" (as apposed to a staple) is the organic fuji apples that woolies have had the last couple of weeks! yum! but i cant seem to eat enough for a whole meals worth of cals so they have to be my dinner entree... or i have to have them chopped with date sauce on top.
Hi Jay, I saw your post on the forum saying that you've recently been off the banana wagon(!) and I totally understand why! It's hard all this pressure from family and stuff. I'm a newbie to the whole raw food way of life but I totally believe it's the right thing to do. Good luck in getting back on the wagon, I really hope you succeed! I'm going to do 17 days of 100% to kick start my ass into this! (after several failed attempts!) Jx

Hi Jay, Karmyn started a new thread on the subject here http://www.30bananasaday.com/forum/topics/bald-beautys-inspiring-story with the updates. Karmyn and Roger did their own fundraiser through Roger's email subscriber list and they raised another $700 for her, so hopefully she will be able to buy her new computer outright. Frederic Patenaude and his fiance Veronica hope to do another similar fundraiser for her in the future. So things are looking really good.
