I had to go way back to page 4 to find you ladies

I don't know how to make one of those round ones work. I have one too and it gets WAY too hot for raw food. My new dehydrator came yesterday and I have yet to use it but I did just pick up some things for sprouting and am planning to make some bread in a couple of days. Wish me luck! The one I got is a 4 tray excaliber. It has temperature control but no timer so I am going to set it up on one of those timers you might use for lights on your fish tank so I wont over do it if I forget.

I haven't had any grains for almost 3 weeks so we'll see how they make me feel.

How is everyone else doing?

I am still mostly in the same place as I was... fruit for breaky, salads with lunch and dinner, but still eating more cooked stuff than I would like.

I think it is emotional eating for me though, when I am eating because I am feeling grumpy or whatever, I crave all the bad things like bread, sugar, chocolate and stuff.

I love the idea of making new raw recipes every week to keep it interesting. One thing that is holding me back is my blender jug broke and I have to get a new one - it is much easier to eat more raw when I can make smoothies and almond milk and stuff.

Hey everyone, just wanted to mention that I'm starting a new raw blog on my LJ. There isn't much up there yet, but I'm going to put up my weekly menus, recipes, log what I eat, how I make it, etc. I hope to update it every day. I'm really trying to make a commitment to getting back on track. I eat waaaay too much fat right now and my food combining isn't so great lately.

So if you're interested in following along, drop a note here:

Cheers!

ok, i'll preface this by saying i havent read this whole thread, lol

ok, we had a family at church, the kids were raised 100% raw until they had all their teeth (something linking getting your teeth to how mature your digestive tract is- cant remember it all, but it was interesting) and mom and dad were mostlyraw- it was a vegan whole foods diet, and they had maybe 1 cooked meal a day....
anyway, i was very interested in their ways of doing things, i enjoyed whatever they made when at their house for dinner, or something they brought to a church pot luck, stuff like that. i dont think i want to go fully raw, but i am interested in going partially...we're military, and theyre gone now, so i cant ask them anymore, so i was hoping someone could post me links of info and recipes. i just got a dehydrator, and im interested in the crackers and stuff too(had something similar before, there are a couple of families who are partially raw now).... im in germany, and my commissary is tiny, and i dont have a car, so not too much shopping on the economy, so i think sprouting might be out- ive seen unroasted sunflower seeds, but thats really it, but any information you have, im willing to read-thanks

I am still raw too, now for 9 months with one two week falling off the wagon. Right now I am trying to eliminate dehydrated or other processed stuff like oil, and salt. But don't worry about those if you just starting, because they help you to transition from cooked.
