  1. I have a raw food recipe book that has an awesome recipe for raw pancakes. They are called Brazil nut banana pancakes. You will need a dehydrator to make them, but they come out just like real pancakes, they taste good, and they have all healthy and natural ingredients: - 3 bananas - 1 cup of Brazil nuts - 1 cup of flax meal - Cinnamon (I think it's about 1-2 teaspoons, but I use a little bit more for added flavor) - About a cup of water Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and turn it into a batter. Just slowly pour water in until it's a smooth batter (not too watery). Then you want to take a 1/4 cup measure and scoop the batter out and pour it onto either parchment paper or some teflex lined dehydrator sheets. Spread it out into a pancake shape, then put them in the dehydrator for 5-6 hours, flip them, and dehydrate for another 2-4 hours. The recipe makes about 8 pancakes total. If you don't own a dehydrator, I see no reason why you couldn't cook these in a pan on the stove. I eat them raw though to preserve as many nutrients and enzymes as possible. For a sweetener, I use agave nectar or you could always go with some natural organic maple syrup.
  2. I was just checking out that site and it looks good. The prices aren't too bad at all. I'm confused about some things though: 1. There's a lot of different choices under the flavors (unsweetened, natural, premium). Would the healthiest option to be to choose one of the "unsweetened" flavors, or does it not matter? And if I do choose one that's sweetened, I'm assuming stevia is probably the best choice then since it's natural right? 2. Which flavors of the pea/rice protein are good and are there any that taste bad that I should avoid? I know this mostly comes down to opinion, but is there a certain flavor that you've come across or heard about that is just disgusting and wouldn't see anyone liking it? 3. Which additives are recommended, if any? I was thinking maybe the enzyme/vitamin/mineral mix. Would that be a good choice, or is there a better option? Sorry if these are basic questions, but I've been a long time user of just regular whey/casein/egg protein and I'm trying to go completely vegan, so I'm not sure exactly what I need. Looking forward to hearing all of your responses.
  3. I actually bought this book a couple months ago, but I have yet to read it. Been meaning to but I keep forgetting. I'll probably start it today and let you know what I think.
  4. I've been doing them at the end of my chest workout on an exercise ball using either cables or dumbbells. The ball makes the eccentric movement feel more smooth and comfortable and helps me to get a better stretch. Like VeganEssentials said, try to keep your arms straight and don't bend. You will feel it more doing it this way.
