I'm trying not to bash myself on the head with a cascade of words that I would only use on an enemy!!!!! BUT, it's a challenge.........
For the last 2 summers I have eaten predominately raw, one cooked meal, and the rest raw, raw, and more raw. I felt like I've never felt before in all the categories of body, mind and soul. SO WHY, WHY, WHY, do I stray from a good thing.......:confused: I'm going to find out this time around, one reason is that when it starts to get cold I start the endless loop whine within that I need something warm!
I encourage you to respond to this tiny little log-on, because for now your support is my strength!

Welcome back! The last Leadbelly I knew sure liked to spice his food with the hot sauce before he sang! Never heard of raw then. I used to call myself lead belly but have learned different.

Hi there and a big WARM (((hug))) to ya!
Well, the reason why we ALL sometimes stray from a good thing (namely raw foods) is due to a lot of things be it food addictions, emotional eating/wanting "comfort" foods, etc.
But we always come BACK because we know how good we feel when we eat raw - so this is your first step and a major one!
As for keeping warm, there are many things you can do to ensure having something "warm" inside:
- eat fruit at room temp or if it does come straight out of the fridge, run under some hot water for a bit or just let it sit out
- find a raw soup recipe or two that you like and "warm" that either in the Vitamix by blending longer OR warm on stovetop in a pot just until your finger can sit comfortably in it without being burned
- make dehydrated foods (if you own one) and foods can be "warmed" in there as well
- add "warming" spices to foods such as a pinch of cayenne or ginger
- drink "warmed" but not boiled herb tea or warm lemon water with some agave in it for sweetness

Couple of newbie questions.........is it best to sort of record who you've posted to in able to remember to go back there???
My hair is falling out.......I just started back on mostly raw.......I'm hoping that clears up and how about menapausal heat flashes, anyone have theirs stop because of raw?

My hair was falling out but I think it was due to bad chemical process.
Hot flashes gone gone gone!
