View Full Version : what is 100%
09-26-2007, 01:17 AM
I am thinking about doing this challenge for october. What does 100% raw mean? No tea I assume. What about frozen fruit, nama shoyu, and spices? Please help me figure out what is to be excluded. Thanks

Here is something I wrote in response to a similar question before the Sept. Challenge began:
Let's not make this more difficult or confusing than it has to be. We're not trying to be totally anal-retentive or anything with this. We're talking eating a Big Mac or steamed veggies or baked potato or a bag of Lay's, not those little things that are often used in raw recipes - that is, as long as they do NOT make you, personally, feel as though you have eaten cooked food and done a "no-no".
As with anything, use your own discretion with the "questionable" items but yall know what is meant by cooked food...the outright, shole 'nuff, just came out of the oven, off the stove, or off the shelf at the conventional grocers, etc...the stuff that makes you feel/think you've "slipped" or "backslidden" off of raw...those things of your past before discovering raw that you know are moreso "comfort foods" for you. Those are the things we're talking about, not nama shoyu or seasonings or what have you.
Everyone has their threshold and know what they can and cannot do or "get away with" when it comes to certain items so just use your best judgment and intuition with these items.
As for tea...if you're not BOILING the water...just room temp. or slightly warmed (just until your finger can rest comfortably) and as long as it's herb tea...I think that should be fine.
Oh, thank you! Thank you! I've been with y'all all along and didn't know it!! I had the same question/concern about the little things like seasonings, so I thought I didn't truly measure up to 100%. I really feel great now and will be "official" for the October challenge. Thank you so much!
