View Full Version : Struggles and Triumphs
06-07-2005, 06:52 AM
I have been having a rough couple of days. The lack of a dehydrator to make crackers and breads is getting to me. I miss bread so bad. This is my struggle among the harping and complaining by my family. My 10 year old daughter tried making me feel guilty for not eating their cooked dinner last night. When I sat down with my husband and began to tell him of it, he says that yes I have been misstreated. What do you need us to be? I thought that was very nice and helped me calm down a bit.
My triumphs are the pounds are coming off. And I didn't buy the veggie burger at Burger King. Instead I got a salad and had a living dressing. Because of that I feel great and am not guilty this morning.
Today is seven days in my new life. I am so very happy all in all.

So glad to hear you are triumphing! I know it's GOT to be difficult being around folk who are eating differently than you are.
Have you gotten or considered getting Jinjee and Storm's eBooks? They are raising 4 children raw (yes, that is all they've known and the children have not been exposed to t.v. etc., yet, they do KNOW about cooked foods, etc.) My understanding from what I've read is that some of their children do say they "hate" raw yet, when given the choice they choose it.
Anyway, their books are very good for one who doesn't have a dehydrator. They use simple, fulfilling recipes and have LOTS of information on raw children. I printed the books out. (btw ~ they are only $20) The eBooks and Alissa's book and dvd's are really all one needs to live full, rich, rewarding, raw lives.
Best to you ~

Have you considered purchasing some raw flax crackers on line until you get a dehydrator. I am missing crackers as well but do not want to invest in a dehydrator just yet. I cannot imagine I would use it very much as I like really simple foods like plain fruit and salads.
Also, the Lara Bars are a lifesaver. I eat too many of them but the bar really satifies my need for a treat.

I have the links to Jinjee's ebooks. I should peruse them eh? he he Thank you Revvell for the reminder.
As far as a dehydrator, I have heard the simple one with a temp gauge at Walmart will suffice for me. So when I can i'll work on gettting that.
I have looked for the crackers Nina and I have hard time buying them knoing I could make them for so much less but I will probably get some this week to hold me over.
Thank you for the encouragement ladies!

Shanna Hosanna, there is another thread talking about how someone's children always wanted some of the persons raw food. I responded to that thread, stating that the first couple of times I made juice smoothies, my children wanted some! I had only made enough for me, though. About the second week of making morning smoothies, I made too much, and poured 3 small glasses of the smoothies for my children to drink with their cereal. Well, now 1 child always has a smoothie, another child has a smoothie about half the time, and the third one is a tougher nut to crack. The point is, they don't care if it is raw or not - they like it!!! So, find some great recipes that you and your child/ren can enjoy and start there. Share with them - it does wonders.
