Where inthe world do you get your ingredients? I can't find Nama Shoyu, chocolate, Tahini, nori, figs, and a whole bunch of other stuff raw. My parents definentily are not willing to spend gobbs of money over the internet to calm my appetite. Where can I get these things, or at least what is the cheapest website if that is my last resort. Wholesale is always nice. Right now I have little but apples and spinach.

Nama shoyu: I used to get it online but now use organic wheat free soy sauce
Chocolate: I order it online or if I can't afford it I used cooked cacao and/or carob
Tahini: Put sesame seeds in food processor and process several minutes, pausing every 1-2 minutes or it WILL cook from the friction generated heat
Nori: Grocery or health food store
Figs: Grocery or health food store
Even my local heathfood store has nama shoyu and raw almond butter or tahini or you can make your own nut/seed butters. I sometimes find organic figs and dates at super walmart. Nama shoyu is a bit expensive but it last for a long time because you dont use much in your recipes and in time you will use a lot less as it will seem stronger the longer you are raw. I find that celery/garlic/ginger and fresh herbs serve the same purpose for me most of the time in my recipes. You can grow your own fresh herbs in you own bedroom by the window or outside if you wish and its very inexpensive and fun. My favorites are parsley, cilantro, oregano, mint, basil, dill, and rosemary.

I get my stuff from the grocery store and the healthfood store (good earth). I also get many things from my garden and nuts from my friends trees and fruit from the trees of people that don't want all the produce. (I love it when this happens - it's better than the stores.)

Alissa's store (www.alissacohen.com) carries nori, chocolate and nama shoyu and a host of other items...check it out! All else you can find in a natural health food store such as Wholefoods, a food co-op, Trader Joes, etc. Some chain grocers sometimes carry these types of items as well...but there is the possibility they may not be "truly" raw so you'll have to ask.

I second what everyone else said.
If you can't find ingredients locally,
first check out Alissa's raw food store,as
she has a great variety of food,supplements,
and adorable clothing to boot!
She also offers certain items in bulk,so you end up saving a lot of
money in the long run.
And everything is well priced.
That being said however,for certain specialty items that you may be
looking for that Alissa does not carry,
I like Naturalzing.
They have pretty much anything that you could ever want for
a raw food lifestyle,and they have good prices and quick shipping.
Friendly,knowledgable staff too.
