View Full Version : Monthly Challenge "Rules"

Of course, I read the rules thread, but I've still got a question about the definition of "raw" for the Challenge.
I mean, apart from the obvious, what about the "controversial" stuff like agave, miso, unroasted nori, drinking herbal tea etc?
So looking forward to tomorrawwwwww!! :D

don't sweat the small stuff.... agave, honey, miso...http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s43/FireStar_830/sign0023.gif .... just enjoy the freedom! EAT THE AGAVE, EAT THE HONEY, EAT THE MISO.... NBD!!! If you want to make sure your almonds are unpasturized... Alissa is now selling raw almonds here on RFT! so there's your source for those! the rest of it... don't get caught up in 'law, and rules'... just enjoy the ride.... you will be amazed at the benefits!!! RAWK ON!!!
what's that cover girl jingle...???
easy ~ breezy ~ RAWgirl!!! :D
http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s43/FireStar_830/Dancing-2.gif okay... I just reread your question... basically - no meat, no fish, no dairy, no poultry, no bread (unless its raw), no tofu. Spices, stuff liek that ... I use... herbs, spices, nama shoyu, braggs, miso, occassionally regular nori -- Remember... the more 100% raw you can be the better of course. The more 100% organic you can be the better... BUT... do what you can - don't sweat the rest. I would rather buy my veggies from the grocery store if I cannot afford organic... rather than go without! Stuff like that! You'll do great!
REMEMBER TO HAVE FUN WITH IT OKAY!!! CUZ THAT'S WHAT THIS JOURNEY IS ALL ABOUT!!

Thanks a lot for your reply, Starfire (I always enjoy your posts! :) )!
Well... I'm not a rules-and-law-person anyway :D , so I eat that stuff (except the honey, for ethical reasons) without feeling guilty, he he... I just wanted to make sure I don't upset people in the forum posting something I'm not supposed to (after reading that you should write about your "non-raw-situations" in the challenge thread etc etc...).
I'll get a massive bag of almonds from Austria (when I fly home for Xmas), because my mum buys them from a German raw company (cheaper for her for several reasons) :)
At the moment (regarding nuts) I eat mainly walnuts (still from an enormous survival box from my granny from her garden *lol*), and I just got some (truly raw, quite expensive *phew*) cashews, which I love too.... (I think I read something about a rawsome taco cheese or something like that... have to search for the recipe...)
Ah... I love raw food!!!

Oh girl... gotta find that spicy taco recipe... it will knock your raw socks off!! I got so addicted to that - i ate it like 3 times a day for almost 2 months!! Yep... it's THAT GOOD!! ...
there is also a great corn tortilla recipe attached to that recipe... AMAZING!!
do a search... see the banana at the top of the page? it shouldn't be too hard to find... I think i've posted the recipe myself about 2 or 3 times...
you will be so glad you tried that recipe!

Hmmm, obviously I'm not very good at searching :)
I only found the taco meat recipe, but that wasn't what I was looking for (maybe I should try it anyway, as you seem to be very enthusiastic about it *lol*)...
I only remember somebody saying that she always made some kind of (cashew?) cheese her father loved and he didn't even know it was raw, or something like that....
The corn tortilla (if you mean the one from goneraw) was something I always wanted to try...looks really mouth watering. Although, I don't have a dehydrator (only a cheap hand blender), and I guess for this recipe you definitely need one. :(
However, I found the "Raw sour cream", and I'm excited to try it. Anybody from the UK here who knows where to get the "Power Dophilus Probiotic" (or any other vegan probiotic)?
