Re: Do you donate? Let us know how you contribute!

I honestly have not given any cash to anything in a while, but my brother and I are building a new online company in our spare time that we hope to turn into a donation machine for various non-profits. One of them is Mercy for Animals. When people buy stuff, 50% of the money goes to the charity they...

Weekend Trip to Vegan Vacation?

Anyone interested in going to Vegan Vacation from Portland for just the weekend?

I have a newly converted Mercedes running WVO that I am considering cruising there in, but it would be a lot more appealling if I was not driving myself!

for example, when you dry some foods they go from having 1 gram of potassium to 5 grams of potassium, where does that extra potassium come from? . Are you talking about something like raisins vs grapes? Yes, something very much like that. Perhaps even exactly that, I am not sure, it was part of a D...

Both B12 and DHA/EPA Omega 3 can be handled by adding a tablespoon of blue green algae to one of your smoothies each day if you want to stay raw and supplement free. Like other people said, a B12 supplement and something like hemp seeds are other good options, although blue green algae is the only v...

Yes it is, and sync's up well with Spiritual Nutrition which I am in the process of choking down. So much new vocabulary in this field!

Thanks for posting.

Ormus is the name they are giving to live substances that are not in a final state, for example, when you dry some foods they go from having 1 gram of potassium to 5 grams of potassium, where does that extra potassium come from? David Wolfe would say that they come from the ormus in the food. I woul...

I have decided there is no right answer, no perfect way or eating, and there are various factors I weigh in my diet. Proper nutritional balance. Taste and ease of preparation. Cost. There is so much information out there about how to eat...blood types, ayruvedic system, oxydative type, etc.... Then ...

Typically its not an issue. But, I read somewhere that if your kidneys have an ISSUE they might be unable to FLUSH out excess Potassium which most normal people are able to do. Sodium on the other hand is more dangerous. But, Potassium is fine because excess gets FLUSHED out without being absorbed ...

Try wrapping it with a little dulse, keep the sodium/potassium ratio right.

I'd love to try some mountain biking...it would be a great idea to include this into next year's vegan vacation. Maybe we could get oregonisaac to lead a mtb ride. Sounds great! I was actually thinking how fun the trail would have been on a bike (although it is not allowed at South Sister). There a...

A lot of people say you always drop weight when you first go raw, which I think may be at least true for many people, depending on how much raw fresh foods you were eating before your transition. I have been raw for about 5 months now and I just started gaining weight again, and that is without any ...

I chew my blended drinks, best of both worlds.

And if you can chew dark green kale into a liquid like the vitamix can then more power to you. I tried one day, my jaw got really tired and it would take hours to eat 1/2 a bunch of kale if chewed properly.

I find hemp protein to be incredibly heavy, I do better mixing some raw hemp seed in with my foods lately for digestive comfort. Works great in salad dressings. I also like food processing hemp seed with a banana and a little vanilla bean or carob. Gas is something I think of as a sign of bad food c...
