Hi to all here in the Raw Food Talk Community. My name is Scott I'm 38 And I just started to eat as much raw in my diet as I possibly could about a month ago. Tomorrow I am starting to go raw completely or as close to 100% as possible.
I would like some advice to help me get on track into this lifestyle. What I am planning on is juicing for three meals and eating fruits and some veggies if I get hungry. What I have to juice is celery, carrots, tomatoes, grapefruits, oranges, and apples and I have as many bananas to eat as I want plus the foods I have listed. I figured what better way to get started than to jump in and do it then figure it out and learn as I go.

apples make a great juice
so does a v8 type tomato juice , but using a high speed juicer or
blender for tomatos makes them frothy / ruins them imo . i juice tomatos
by crushing them in pot with a manual potato masher , i add water to pot to help wick juice outta pulp . i then strain thru a paint filter bag which can be bought at home depot etc , get bigger 5 gallon size makes easier . then once pour the mix into paint bag squeeze with hands to get most juice out
in salads to make heartier add things like alot of avacado / chopped walnuts / sesame seeds , plus vegis like brocoli / mushrooms
great smoothie is almond milk / banana / carob powder or cacoa / dried dates to sweeten
raisins are a favorite anytime food
sprouted buckwheat , only takes 24 hours as it really doesnt need sprout but rather soften , used as a cereal with almond milk poured over and things like berries / fruit / cinnamon etc is great

The smoothie sounds good, I am assuming ice is also added to the mix. I don't know if I can get almond milk where I am living. I live in the middle of nowhere northern Alberta not far from the northwest territories. The stores here in town usually have only the most basic fruits and vegetables.

i was meaning to make the almond milk . very easy , just grind about 25 almond in blender to a powder . add 3/4 full blender of water and blend . then strain thru a fine metal kitchen strainer or paint filter bag / nut milk bag
ide never buy it in carton as i know theres some type preservative

if up there ide be looking into growing micro greens ,
maybe hydroponically , as dark greens to most raw foodies
are huge for their vitamin / minerals
ide also stock up on buckwheat seeds to sprout /
sun dried raisins / walnuts / almonds / other seeds
such as sun - flax - etc / if you like mung sprouts
good sprouting info @ www.sproutpeople.com
