Shalom from Virginia!
I am so glad to be here! I really need your input to keep me on the road. I am turning to raw food because it is easier for me to keep kosher this way and to get my health back.
I am so glad to be here with all of you.
I can appreciate your wanting to eat raw for a less complicated kitchen. My in-laws keep kosher, and this "goy gal" is anxious every time she goes into their kitchen for a snack for fear of using the wrong this or that.
I came from a Kosher home myself. The great thing about being raw vegan is you don't have to look for the K's on everything!
Welcome to you and congratulations on your wonderful journey.
Hey Dot - watch that silverware! Use the wrong fork and you'll have to bury it all the way to china! LOL
Raw Step by Step
"We can do anything we want to do if we stick with it long enough." Helen Keller

It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish." -- Mother Teresa
"I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men." -- Leonardo da Vinci
"You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity." --Ralph Waldo Emerson
No lie, Sharon! Whenever we visit, I usually just eat whatever someone else is having and let them fix it for me! Although, next time we go to visit, it's going to be really easy for me, as all I'll need is the fruit basket. :)
Which will be a bonus in another sense, as my mother-in-law unfortunately loves to create new dishes and is NOT a good cook. One of her favorites to make is chicken breasts with stuffing containing canned corn and sweetened dried cranberries...baked for FOUR HOURS until the chicken chews about as easily as beef jerky. ::::shudder:::::::
The warmest of welcomes to you Shalom. I wish you many blessings as you heal. :)
From Virginia!? Me too! What area? I'm live in Richmond.
I grew up in kosher household. I married a "goy."
I know just how you feel, DotfromOz. I have had my share of scares in this. Glad to be a raw foods person. :)
Thank you for making me feel so good about being here! This is going to be great and I hope that we all can learn from each other. I have been given wonderful Passover raw recipes by others. Kristin, I live in Richmond also( Northern Henrico)!
I have a question for all? Was your transition hard? easy? mixed?
Found an awesome book!
:) While going through my neighborhood library, I came across this wonderful book! The title? "Cooking Kosher: The Natural Way" by Jane Kinderlehrer. She either still is or was the Senior Editor at Prevention Magazine. I couldn't believe it. The recipes were perfect and I can find out how to do things better.
I wish that I could do a journal here. I don't have the capability to upload a picture of myself. I started eating raw on 16 March 2005 and I have notice some changes going on with me.
Is it alright to eat a cereal known as Ezekiel 4:9? It is sprouted cereal and I have some alsmond milk that I wanted to use up? Is it alright to eat it or throw it away? I have to have all of the breads out of the house before Passover anyway. Any suggestions?
Any of you guys still around? I am in Newport News and am looking for good food sources here.
Kosher is king.
I found that by eating Vegetarian ( i haven't made it to raw yet), it easy to always eat halal ( islamic equivalent of kosher) even when I use to eat meat I would get it from Kosher food marts or from Omish farmers. So I can appreciate your efforts.
Best wishes on your healthful journey!
It is, therefore, evident that it is possible to cure by foods, aliments and fruits; but as today the science of medicine is imperfect, this fact is not yet fully grasped. When the science of medicine reaches perfection, treatment will be given by foods, aliments, fragrant fruits and vegetables, and by various waters, hot and cold in temperature.
