View Full Version : Question of Relativity?
08-31-2007, 06:09 AM
I was wondering if I could pose this question, because I've been struggling with this . . . After being devestated, having discovered that manna bread is not raw, I questioned, okay, but it's sprouted and cooked for a minimal time....and it's 100% natural.....so, yes, it isn't 100% raw...BUT it can't be as bad as, for example, a pizza from Pizza Hut or a bag of chips. I mean, there must be some nutritional value . . . so I wonder if most rawbies think that if it isn't 100%, then it's SAD......there has to be some medium?
Here I was ... . . thinking I was 100% again...the learning process continues

The choice of what you eat is yours alone. The "medium" is what you decide is the best path for you. Manna bread is a delicious and nutritious, clean food. And yes...it is hands down better than most stuff out there. But it isn't raw. It's as close as a bread can be and still be cooked.
Only you can decide what works for you, what fits, how your body feels when you eat it. I used to love manna bread, now it just feels heavier in my stomach than I want to feel.

Thanks Glimr. Well, I've made the decision to eat it over the weekend, but purchase a dehydrator tonight . . . I will try the raw recipes....and hopefully that will do the trick

You know when people here say it's all a journey, it really is. It takes time to find out what will work for you, what you feel comfortable with. Wishing you the best~

I have the same problem in that I do not want to stop eating my organic peanutbutter. I really think I will when I find something to replace it with. It keeps me from being hungry and keeps me eating raw. I really do not like almond butter and almonds probably are not going to be raw for long. I do want to become 100% raw, but I am okay with where I am at right now.

Thanks DJ. I mean, really, it's organic......if that's the one cheat--still darn good!! on the LARA BAR Web site, she has a very interesting take on why two of the ingredients used are not raw and why she still considers them to be highly nutritious.....I like that......I'm not entirely convinced that everything that isn't raw is bad for you (in keeping with orgranics, etc)...but that might change.
That being said, I'm trying to sprout my own bread this weekend!

I went through that with sprouted black or red rice and sprouted quinoa. Its organic, non refined, very clean, sprouted, but still cooked. I dont eat it, but IF I had to "cheat" with a little cooked food, that would be it. Like everyone else mentioned, its a journey and you will find what works for you and your body.

I used to love sprouted breads but i dont even crave them anymore. I think it was bc i was in someway addicted to grains or wheat or something. Now i dont eat grains anymore.
