High-fiber foods and nutrient absorption

Started this discussion. Last reply by Ben Jun 21, 2011. 1 Reply

I've had this thought before, but I became reminded of it while reading Dr. Graham's "Grain Damage": will high-fiber fruits/veggies lead to poor absorption of nutrients, due to moving through the…Continue

need advice for transporting bananas

Started this discussion. Last reply by ednshell Jun 18, 2011. 9 Replies

When I go to work, I usually take 20+ bananas (as 4 or 5 bunches) with me in a plastic grocery bag. Inevitably, a few will be ripped off their stems, get bruised, and start browning and getting…Continue

I am interested in learning as much as possible about nutrition, in order to maintain good health and live as long as possible. I also want my family to adopt healthier eating habits. While I am 100% vegan, it is tough to be 100% raw with 2 little kids and a wife who is big on tradition (i.e., not apt to change).

Durianrider & Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan and vegan lifestylists' across the Globe! 30bad is a high standard and high performance team! We're here to help you make our team! Let us know what high fruit assistance do you need?
My wife doesn't believe anything I say unless she reads/hears it herself from a 3rd party. She is trying to lose ~15 pounds, and she refuses to go vegan and give up the treats (junk food) she likes, despite the success I have had (lost over 20 lbs in 2 years). I also have a hard time keeping her and other family members from providing junk food to our kids.
30bad is a fruit-focused vegan internet community which promotes a high carb fruit based vegan lifestyle free of any animal products. Our forum does not tolerate encouragement of anything contrary to this. Nor do we allow endorsement of non-vegan items or practises which involve the imprisonment, exploitation, abuse or murder of sentient beings. We also require our members to post with proper netiquette. Therefore, please indicate your intention:
I will comply because I like totally agree with all this

Thanks for the compliment, Ben :)

Self portraits are such a fun thing to do. You should try it too :)))

Sweet, hadn't even thought of that!  I even saw a YT vid for a do-it-yourself job...

Ben, just read you post about your sedentary job, and had a thought you might consider.

I learned from a yoga expert that sitting is 4x more compressive to the spine than standing, so you're right that sitting is not ideal long-term. 

Have you seen those standing desks?  This might work at home for you, and perhaps even if you can get one into your office.

I don't think it would make a difference if it were fresh, the smell is a turn off. My house still stinks, I had to throw out the remainder, and it still stinks in here. I coulnt ever go through an experience like that one again I had. It was like eating rotten onions, yuk, and the price to eat something so horrifying,lol.

Haha. when I moved here, I never tried any of the BBQ or any of all that hype, but I see the addicts everywhere. I can imagine it must be tough because people around here describe good BBQ as heroin addicts describe their high.
