Thanks for answering my questiong Denise. Boy that sounds really expensive. Farmers market isn't that close to me, but could take the bus there. Generally speaking, what do you normally buy if you don't mind me asking?
It is expensive, but once I learn how to sprout it won't be as much so. I also am currently not in an area where I have a lot of bulk available to me (like bulk nuts, beans, apples, etc).
This week is:
Spaghetti Marinara - the spaghetti is squash (your choice of yellow or zucchini) which is shreaded with a peeler, the marinaria is raw tomatoes, garlic, onlions, spices, etc (will have to pull the recipe)
Fettuchini Alfredo - same type for "noodles" but the sauce is a raw tahini based
Stuffed Potabello caps
Mock Turkey Loaf
Nori Rolls -the "rice" is minced califlower
Broccoli in Raw Tahini Sauce (I like tahini)
Also, tons of salads and fruit I have raw salsa, spinach dip and tahini dressing to eat with them.
I'm still very new to this but really like the crispy foods and not so bloated and full feeling even though I am getting all my caloric intake.
Also, thanks for correcting me on Biggs. Got confused with Fruitarian and Raw diet. Still though, if he's eating fruit, isn't that still Raw?
It is raw but only fruit. Fruitarians eat only foods of plant origin that can be obtained without killing the plant: fruits, nuts and seeds, for example.
Also, are there any ethical reasons as to go Raw? For example, how would NOT eating tofu be ethical compared to eating organic?
Vegan, yes, organic, yes, fruitarians will argue that their way is ethical.
Other than that most people go raw for health reasons. Some are combating disease Pat Reeves (female power lifting champion) is one, many have had complete recovery from disease. I beleive Brendan Brazier is high raw. I personally feel better on raw food. So you could eat tofu and still be high raw, you just wouldn't be 100% raw.
I have been dabbleing in raw for a while and since my sisters illness (still in ICU) I have been unable to work out as much as I want. Raw has made me maintain my weight. Their are some bodybuilders on some of the sites, and also some figure competitiors. They say they feel much better on raw.
