View Full Version : empty stomach feeling
09-30-2007, 01:57 PM
This is twice now that I have felt like I needed a good rib sticking something to eat. So I ate SAD last night. I had couscous w/sundried tomato and green onion. That did not do it, so I then had about 3 oz pepper jack cheese w/those pepperoncini peppers out of the jar, and a 1/2 of a cinnamon roll (which I posted prior that I swore I would never again eat). Still had the unsatisfied feeling, so I ate an apple, that did not work either...So I get up this morning, not hungry, but having what I will describe as flu like symptoms. Mostly feeling blah, no energy, and oh my gosh my joints ached something awful. I fought it for 3 hours then finally caved and took a 4 hour nap. Woke up sweating and the joint pain is gone. What the heck!
Anyway, what are good foods that will help give me the rib sticking meal effect if this occurs again.

wow... sounds like a bit of detox going on there....
Do you have Alissas book and DVD? There are some AMAZING recipes that my husband loves (he's 'hi-raw' but he's also a SAD eater - carnivore type). His favorites are:
Alissas CALZONES... (his absolute favorite!! ;) )
next he loves Alissa's ENCHILADAS
the stuffed portabella mushrooms....
and Alissas date nut torte!
I loove the enchiladas myself - they are amazing...!!
last night I tried a recipe i found here on RFT - RAW FAJITAS... if you do a banana search up above you'll find the recipe ... and a photo of the dish.
I served it to my bff's CARNIVORE husband - and he could only eat two....
this man is 6'5 and REALLY EATS ALOT!
I served him 2 of these fajitas, with a salad and an ear of corn with guacamole spread on the raw corn (it's better than butter! yummm!)
After he ate his first plate - I was ready to serve him more but he looked at me and said - my gawd those are filling!
in fact he used the words ..."man those fajita wraps are stick to the ribs delicious and filling too! WOW.. that was great - I definitely want you to make this dish again!"
I was so happy he not only loved them - but it filled him up too!:D !!

I have not been able to order the book yet, but I plan to this week, along with a dehydrator, maca powder, and some raw agave and whatever else I cannot find at my HFS. I spent a little time this morning writing recipes. Now I just need to make my grocery list. Until I can get a dehydrator, I am going to try an oven method I saw on a network show. You set the oven to the lowest temp, prop the oven door open to vent and hang a small fan inside to move the air. Have to have a thermometer to watch the temp. I hope it works, LOL. Once I start dehydrating, that will give me so much more variety.
I think I am really craving pizza, I love old chicagos pizza and we are going out later this week for a birthday there. I think that is heavy on mind and hormones are taking over a little this week too.

Hey ... there's a raw pizza recipe floating around here on rft somewhere!! It sounded wonderful!
yea - I heard about that open the oven door method - tell me if it works - cuz A lot of people dont' have dehydrators and I've mentioned that to them, but no one that I know of has tried -it.
It would be interesting to hear how it goes --- it's supposed to work really well!
There are some great pizza recipes in Alissas book - but since you don't have her book yet -- try doing a banana search up above and see if you can find the one that was posted!
good luck!! :D

my mom has been having the same issue. She keeps calling me saying "I need some food!" She is craving bread and pasta and just that full feeling. I had that at first, but once I got used to not having that full feeling I feel so much lighter and better. I think it is all part of the cooked food addiction.

Walnut taco meat on onion bread or romaine leaf with tomatoes and avocado give me the stick to the ribs feeling.
Also, a marinated portabella mushroom 'sandwich' on onion bread with tomatoes, collard, romaine, and avocado does that as well.
Also, a mock tuna sandwich, with collard leaf, on onion bread.
You can also make a pizza with the onion bread. Rawvolution has several recipes. I've only tried the Italiano. Really good!

I get that too when I just feel like eating something very heavy, huge and not very healthy for me... and I'm not much of a meat eater anyway so its baffling to me why I crave anything thick, beefy and filling at any time period.
