Greg. The recipe calls for 3 cups pineapple to 1 avocado. The pineapples I have are about 6 cups worth each. So I used 2 avocados per 1 pineapple. You most certainly can taate the avocado. It is pretty interesting and the color is amazing. Electric green. Perfect party drink. When I sa 'blend' it is not that I am necessarily mixing up the Honeydew Melon with anything else; it simply means that I am 'blending' it up as opposed to 'juicing' it. The pulp is in the drink. Had I strained the pulp out or ran it through a juicer, I would have called it honeydew juice. I have heard that as well. It probably makes sense. It may seem like i'm eating 'mostly' fruits but if you break down the figures, like I did at the halfway point, the greens to fruits ratio is straight down the middle. Before this feast, I was taking in plenty of fruit but not as much as now and I was also consuming seeds and nuts. That will most likely change now when I go back to solids as this feels really good. Where are you residing now? Give it a shot, what have you got to lose? Many people make the journey alone, not everyone has support and the friendships of others when they try to transition and adapt to different dietary habits. When I became vegetarian, I did not know a single person who was vergetarian or knew what the heck I was talking about. It actually helped not hurt me. Caused me to dive my head in the books even further to learn instead of hearng things here and there and not necessarily picking up on the facts. Same thing when I went vegan. After that, I started to reach out and meet people, including the raw world. There is something to be said for the self taught road; I enjoyed it. I know alot more IMO then I would have had I not gone that route.
TigreBella, as a fellow member of the 'Guido Fan Club', along with my man Tucinator, I can honestly say, If i'm not working out, i'm dancing! Guido Fan Club (:40secs in)Dancing; sorry for the darkness
you can buy them here:Cassia Pods for Sale
They're not that expensive, just challenging to find. $8.50 for one. It would probably last for like 12 uses at the least. There's tons of disks in them
Thanks for the advice on the cascara; i'm going to look into it for next time. Also for the before bed dose; I am going to try that tonight!!!
Paulcats, the point I was trying to get across is that when the pockets are taken out as whole and you buy 'Pre Frozen Durian' (the cheaper 89-109 cents per lb kind), I feel that there is water retention on the inside of the durian shell which makes the actual flesh taste different texture wise. Even when fully thawed out. It has a unique texture to begin with and throw the rubbery freezer burn texture into it and it will turn off some people right there. If you blend it up and serve you will never experience that. I still enjoy thawed out, personally and I have yet t try fresh never frozen durian but I will soon. At $13.99 a lb, it's an expensive investment to buy in bulk. Considering I can go through as much as 35 lbs a week or more at times. I blend and refreeze always in blended form. I have a little before I refreeze but the rest gets frozen. I am always up for a delicious durian session with a fellow vegan neighbor. I will be in the city for a bit this monday around lunchtime. Maybe we can try to meet up then if you want to have lunch for a bit or something. I'll pm you later tonight. I live in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn btw, fairly close to coney island, south brooklyn, in a sense....
Andesuma, Yeh, try going to Jubb's Longevity with Mr. Breatharian himself for lectures and then getting ideas in your head. He never spoke about it but I was mystified by the whole thing in general and by what he 'claims' to do. I don't know how accurate his claims are; I always see him eating. That's actually what led me to the 17day 'dry' fast I did last year which my body was nowehre near ready for. It is too much for most to handle and I do not recommend anyone else trying it unless you want to land yourself in a hospital somewhere...
I am going to explore food combining soon as it interests me and I think i'm ready to try it in practice or at least explore it. Sunny <3's u!
GUILLAUME! (I'm Your Man) love that name, thanks man. They look so appealing, it's impossible not to gulp them down. Thumbs up from everyone I made it for so far. It's good to make things fun. Visual sensory is just as if not at times even more important than taste!
Where do you get your protein?
But as long as people stay away from our cooler bags with our meals and not ask silly questions, we're all pretty tame
