Hello i do not have a bananana you thought about that.. ey ..whohhoooh...no!
i eat what i grow so i can not get those exotic fruities. which i would yum yum but i cant.
i live in growing Zonie 6B i have apple trees , peach trees, pear trees, walnut, hazelnut different types of berry bushes rosa canina etc the rest is vegetables, so
QUESTION DO YOU HAVE A BANANANA?
If you grow your own what do you do in winter time?
big big question, because if you cant preserve then nothing to eat..
many preserve fruit and veggies by adding preservative , i do not want that nasty stuff,
other option that i dry food.
How is this Vegan diet sustainable in the country without that exotic weather without full growing season?
excuse my harsh questions dear fruityheads but i do not have a banana. but i still love you so much so peace
i see that today and all the time all humans should consume only fruits and easily digestible vegetables like tomatoes and carrots peppers, but this lifestyle does not work out for everyone as i see, because when it comes to weather, we have -20 and below, and i only eat what i grow because i cant anything else, its an interresting approach but a failure for many like me. i do believe that the climate used to be a steady 25c degrees allover the planet like 10000 years ago or more, but today alll is messed up, nature is in bad shape and we have nasty freezes and drought.
Which kind of vegetables contain high carbs? by the way, can i ask how a day of yours is diet wise? what do you eat, how you prepare it and how much? i have never spoke to a vegan person before, can you enlighten me about things? thank you Diane
... what an awkward rule. The question asker wanted to talk about sustaining a High Carb Raw Vegan lifestyle, hence why it is posted on the "High Carb Raw Vegan" section. I don't see anything wrong with offering a compromise, and then going into more detail about it. Nobody is promoting cooked food as optimal.
Question...where are you from? does rice, quinoa, beans, olive oil, coconut oil, spices, grown in your backyard?
I actually go through processes of justification for most of my food choices, I believe you should create balance you have to choose one or the other and make sure it's right for your heart.. Sometimes you make better choices after experimenting.
For example I used to think because my fruity friends imported everything they were actually making poor choices as vegans. I have recently changed my perspective... I am still on the fence about this because I think first options should always go to localized food purchases...however, as a regular vegan I consumed rice, beans, nuts, olive oil,flours, spices etc.... all of which were not locally grown for me, and of course they were rather processed.
As a fruity, most of us make the choice to import foods, however the foods are raw whole unpreserved for the most part and fruit from trees remain in the soil and are able continue producing year after year unlike many vegetables which suck nutrients from the soil and require many years of re-nutriziation and honestly millions of animals like groundhogs, gofers, snakes etc loose their homes in this process.
I am definitely not saying driving fruits in semi trucks across the world is my favorite method for staying healthy, what I am saying however, is that I believe its actually a better option for our earth than shipping products that require heavy processing and are not as healthy for me.
thanks for presenting the topic, I love this topic because I am still learning too!
thank you Noelia, nice post. appreciate it.
im from Hungary, from the great hungarian plain. rice, olive oil, coconouts dont grow here, we have summers with max 40Celsius/104Fahrenheit , and winters with max -30 Celsius/-22 fahrenheit
as far as im concerned with summers like what we have quiona cannot take it. i have looked at Amaranth which would be nice,
very harsh all year round, freeze, drought equation, so we not only have to deal with food but to get warm with heating, heating costs are extremely high... well, im blaming the beatiful human insanity consumption for this, because they keep cutting trees and it destroys the natural climate.. but anyway, it is difficult to be a raw fruitarian in such conditions, and many many people face these, so i came to the conclusion that this is not the solution at all, a solution is that what everyone can follow, and that is plain vegetarian for me, i just cant do anything else...
anyway sorry to post and talk about this in the "raw" section, i dont know how to move this discussion.
