I don't have experience with it, Elke, but I have read Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine and Conscious Cuisine by Cousens (amazing books, amazing man!), so I'm familiar with it. Also, I was at the Tree of Life this summer. I ate in the dining hall with everyone who was either on phase 1 or 2, and watched what they ate. The meals were amazing, and there was very little fruit around at all. I hardly missed it. I saw people eating salad sprouts for breakfast, and because I was out of my normal environment, that started to look good! Rainbow Green has some really good recipes in the back. Do you have it?

I just read the thread Sweetlips provided and remembered...celery sticks with almond butter is really good. Don't forget veggie slices/sticks with some kind of dip or dressing; if you have a dehydrator, make a bunch of veggie crackers or flax crackers or the delicious bell pepper crackers and munch on those or eat with some kind of pate'.

It's really great to have friends who offer support and .......friendship!
Sometimes I don't have much time to go to the forum or to send messages,but I just wante to say to everyone:I love you all and I sometimes have the feeling that we are all connected to each other because of rawfood!
I just looked who is activ on the forum at the moment and I saw your name,cherie.I thought......I'm sitting here in front of my computer in Belgium anfd you are sitting in front of yours in America......but we are doing the same thing!
I wish I could meet all of you!Wouldn't that be great a huge potluck with all the members!
Oh,if anyone would come to Belgium:you can always stay at my place! ;-)

You can have all the fruit you want as long as you are not combining it with fats. Dr. Doug Graham has discussed this and many people have followed this advice only to be candida free within weeks (as opposed to months and months avoiding fruits at all costs). If you eat your fat along with your greens/veggies later in the day, you will be able to have all the fruit you want earlier.
The idea behind this is that the fat holds sugar back in the system from going through as it normally would at a quick pace. When you are eating fruit by itself your sugar levels stay stabilized.
Here are some links on the topic.
This first one is a great testimony of being candida free.

I have his book Rainbow Green Live-Food cuisine. Yes, he does allow fruit in all phases except Phase I and nuts and seeds are in Phase I as well as the other phases.
He also provides guidance for babies from under six months to over a year. He indicates that ideally a baby should have breast milk from birth to ages 4 - 6 months but if not possible, he provides suggestions.
