OK so Im very new to this.. can someone explain to me about sprouting? What exactly is that process? I have heard various terms like hulled, groats, and several other terms. im soooo confused.... I want to be able to live a complete raw vegan diet that is interesting but I have such a lack of knowledge, I know Im possibly being hard on myself but I really dont know how and where Im supposed to learn all this..perhaps a course I suppose... for instance, whats a good replacement meal for breakfast using raw grains for replacing things like oats? Can someone give me a general overview of these things or point me towards a book or something?? Thank you soooo much :D

What should I do with corn cobs , usually I would boil them, I was thinking instead scraping the corn off the cob and soaking in water overnight? Has anyone tried this?

I'd start with Alissa's book...Living on Live Food...it is a wealth of information and well worth it.

I agree with GlimR. Get Alissa's first book and her dvds. That'll get you going, PLUS, use the search feature here. You're not the first one who has no idea what eating raw is....
As far as corn goes ~ eat it right off the cob. Sweet and delicious. I have NO idea why people waste time, water and energy boiling the deliciousness out of it then having to put stuff on it for flavor.

I'm one more person who will agree that pretty much EVERY question you have about raw foods will be in Alissa's 1st book and her 1st DVD will help you be able to prepare just about any recipe you ever find that is raw. Good Luck! ( Really Alissa's book is a gold mine.)

There is a book by ann wigmore, not exactly sure of the title, about sprouting VERY GOOD.

Yes, you should definitely pick up a basic book.
1. Corn cob - Like Revvell, I cut the off the fresh cob and eat them raw, just like that. I toss them into salads. No need to soak or do anything with them.
2. For breakfast, you can make raw oatmeal in a high-speed blender like this:
Raw oatmeal for two
* 1 cup steel cut oats (or better yet, use oat groats)
* 1 1/2 cups water
* 1 chopped apple
* 1 tablespoon raisins
The night before, throw the water, raisins and then the steel cut oats into your blender. Let them sit overnight.
In the morning, start your blender. While the water and oats are blending, chop the apple and then add it to the blender, too.
Continue blending until the oatmeal is a nice, smooth texture.
Eat! I love to top this oatmeal with more raisins on top and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Dear you need to boil the corn cobs . I would suggest you to discuss with the expert cook or you may read the recipe books for more information about what to do with corn cobs. Thanks

Raw corn tastes great, much better than cooked.
Are you asking what to do with the corn cobs after you eat the raw corn? I just get rid of it...gonna start composting one day
