Hello to all! I recently stumbled across the Raw lifestyle while looking for juicing books, and ended up buying Raw Food real world instead. And I am soooo glad I did.
I’ve been on a healing journey for a few months now, and going Raw seems like the best thing for me to do for myself. I was having terrible allergic reactions, and I have read on alot of postings that many people have cured themselves of allergies with Raw foods.
This is a great website, I’m so glad I found it. I live in Boston and Raw activity is almost non existent here, even though it is a city. Sad.
Well, thanks for listening. Wish me luck!
Hey greenmachine welcome :)
Hey atleast you have organic foods, wholefoods markets and trader joes in Mass. I live in southern Italy and we have nothing, I buy my fruit and veg at a regular market and the only organic stuff I have access to is what my boyfriend’s dad grows (figs, oranges, tangerines) Also I do believe that Alissa Cohen is somewhere in Massacchussetts…welcome to this site, I love it too and the recipes here are awesome. Peace and Blessings, dea.
yeah juicing is good and has definitely helped me out in living a raw lifestyle. carrot juice is just so good!(i like it simple) so having a juicer is very handy. good luck in your quest!
Welcome greenmachine! Good Luck on your raw journey!
Thanks for the support!
And you’re right deasmiles, I have a Whole Foods practically in my back yard, so I shouldn’t complain. And I am able to eat 100% organic.
I’ll have to check out the Alissa Cohen site too.
I did recently get a juicer, and now I have to make juice every morning or I feel incomplete.
Hi Greenmachine, I’m Originally from Sandwich and there was alot of raw stuff on the Cape ( ie; classes, teachers , pot lucks ). I know that there is a great raw food restaurant in Beverly called Organic Cafe, depending on where you live in Boston that should only be about a half hour away. Good luck and welcome.
Thanks for the book reference. I am looking for a couple more to help me. I have the sunfood diet by david wolf, and Sproutmans kitchen garden, and Sunfood Cuisine by Patenaude. That’s a great way to put it- a healing journey. I am trying to get my boyfriend to eat more raw meals and he likes the idea that I am practicing dishes for when we go camping- like survival food. I need to get a juicer I know that could help me a lot. I am hoping raw can help my arthritis type symptoms. I feel like it has so far. I’ve had a couple mornings where I didn’t need to take ibuprophen and that’s amazing already. good luck with yours..=)
Whole foods and Trader Joe’s are both great. I shop both places frequently here in San Diego. I also go to a place called Ranchos, a health food store that is pure vegan and supports the raw food movement with a tremendous ammount of products and a Raw Food pot luck every month. They are making my transition much easier.
Good luck with the diabetes recovery goal. I would be very interested how your results go. I have a recipe I’m going to publish for raw squash slaw that uses apple cider vinegar that is good for controlling blood sugar. I’ve also hear echinacia and chromium pincolate can help.
Thanks again for all of the support!
And spirit, I went to the Organic Cafe in Beverly a few weeks ago. It’s about 45 minutes from Boston, quite a hike. I didn’t really like it though, kind of got a bad vibe. I don’t get out to the Cape very often, but I’ll keep that in mind.
Oh well, maybe I should start something in the city. All I’d have to do is win the lottery. Hah.
yeah, we went to Organic Cafe too… and it wasn’t very hospitable… but, my co-worker used to live there and she said that’s the Boston life… (I live near DC).
The food was delicious!
Hi to all!! I’m Tim from San Diego. I started RAW about a year and a half ago and have really enjoyed the journey so far. I am looking forward to sharing experiences with you all and hearing tips, recipes, etc from everyone.
Welcome Tim! So nice of you to join us!
