"Bath" Milk (Raw milk in Australia)
Hi, I'm not sure if there's anyone here from Western Australia but I've just found out that Mimsbrook Organics is stocking "bath" milk (raw milk marketed as bath milk due to restrictions in Australia preventing the sale of unpasteurised milk). It's the only place I've seen it sold so I thought I'd throw that out there.

Also, I don't drink milk so I can't see myself taking up drinking raw milk just for the hell of it but I do like yoghurt and cheeses. Is there any sort of raw yoghurt or cheese that I can make myself from raw milk?

Thanks in advance!

Hello I am new here.
As the subject above points out that I am a newbie, so bear with me if I have a lot of questions concerning going raw.  I have for about 3 months been researching this dietary lifestyle so that when I start(which will be in a few weeks) I have a semi knowledgeable understand of how to do this properly and safely eg not becoming anemic. 
Questions starting out.
1) At the moment I am very broke until I get paid, so I am going to start to go raw, one problem I am without a dehydrator, and  until I am able to          purchase one how should I go about dehydrating things properly to ensure safe food handling. 
2) Storage of foods, namely when I am at work I am an IT technician and I want to bring my food with me obviously as there will be no more                 cooked food, what is the best way to transport my meals as I am concerned about  Tupperware and such and toxins that could be lurking in the       containers do you know of any safe containers for food storage?
3) When any of you started a raw diet, how long did the withdrawal as I call it set in of when you was craving the no no items like Starbucks and          such? As well as caffeine headaches and such and what is a good natural holistic way to treat those, as pain relievers one would buy from 
       CVS or Walgreens I more than safely can assume are out of the question?
4) Also if you could point me out to me some good links for raw recipes, I would be very grateful, also if you know of any health and beauty                alternatives as well mucho thanks. I am very excited to get started on I am expecting over time very great things.

Hi, everyone. I didn't see anything about this in the memories. I just have two quick questions: I am going on a ten-day raw food cleanse starting tomorrow and I'm wondering if tofu would be considered a raw food. Also, what is the minimum temperature for "cooking" food? I seem to recall it being something like 82 degrees. true or not true?

Thank you all so much!

wheatgrass mold?
So I used to love wheatgrass, but for the last few -- years, i guess, i just haven't been able to drink it without feeling completely sick and nauseous. i dont know why it took so long to google 'wheatgrass makes me nauseous', but it turns out there's some debate about wheatgrass and mold and growing indoor vs. outdoor. (we grow our own hard red winter wheatgrass on trays indoors, and have experimented a little about growing conditions, temperatures, etc but still it makes me gross.) I just wanted to ask this community if anyone has any insight or further knowledge into this topic? does wheatgrass juice make anyone else barfy? did you find a way to fix it?

So question for my raw buddies, my new SO has decided that he wants to try raw with me so I'm going to actually be "cooking" more as opposed to just throwing a bunch of stuff in a bowl as I usually do. What's your opinion of the second opinion of The Complete Book of Raw Food? Is it a significant upgrade over the first edition? Or should I save myself the 20$ and get the old version?

Hamilton Beach juice extractor

Does anyone have experience with one of these?
Does it work well? Would you recommend the product?

I'm considering buying one for 20$ from craigslist...

Check it out! And thanks for spreading the word. Let everyone know, there's only one more day to vote!!

We have some fun things planned for 2009 Best of Raw too!

Much love, Laura and Giselle

Hola Veggie Friends;

I have something I think you'll be really excited about, I know I am...

Over the last month, co-creator of the Raw Summit has been busy putting together something that's never been done before.

For those who aren't familiar with the Raw Summit, it was an online teleseminar event that brought thousands of people together to learn more about raw and living foods.

What Kevin is up to now is even bigger and better...

He's spent the last month putting together an event called "The Rawkathon."

This is a collection of candid, one-on-one interviews with 15 of the top raw and living food experts on the planet and it will be broadcast for you to watch or listen to in a few short weeks.

The interviews--from what he's said--are like no stage presentation or "how-to" DVD you've seen before.

Not only do these interviews cover how to stay raw, how to stay motivated, and the best ways to do so--Kevin has also said that they capture the true essence of each expert. Almost like you were there in the room with them as the interview was being conducted.

So when you're a part of the event, you get to hear 15 amazing interviews that really have never been created before or likely never again.

As with all of Kevin's events, to get involved, it's 100% fr@e.

It costs nothing for you to watch or listen to these interviews.

All you have to do is register now and you'll be sent information on how you can be a part of raw food history...


Right now the project is set to release on October 19th and only is broadcast for one week, so I wanted to let you know early.

There is an opportunity to get all the interviews in a digital or hardcopy package at a special price with special bonuses, that won't be up after the event starts.

So please go ahead and register now...


Sending love,



P.S. In just a few short weeks, this event will be over, so don't miss the opportunity now!

Pet diets.
This is my first post here. I want to switch my pets over to a raw food diet. I have a large sherperd mix about 100 pounds and a newly acquired kitten. They are both on holistic food at the moment but my dog still has bad skin problems and is troubled by pests. He gets raw meat once a week and raw veggie left overs with every meal in his kibble.

Does anyone out there have a pet on raw diet? If so could they recommend any good sources for learning to prepare pet food or aprox. how much poundage of food they need per day?

meeting other raw foodists

I have a bit of an issue here as I am a raw foodist that have a hard time meeting other raw foodists in Toronto, Ontario. Not that I'm looking for friendships but rather a community where we can share ideas, recipes, understanding of the raw food lifestyle without being so granola about it.  Are there any communities in Canada where people get together and share ideas and recipes and not just through the internet?

How do you guys maintain your raw food lifestyle without the support of family members and friends?

Protect Our Leafy Greens from the Clumsy Iron Boot of the USDA!
Since this is such an important issue and it really needs to be addressed ASAP I am posting this and urging you to follow the instructions at Conucopia http://cornucopia.org/index.php/protect-fresh-leafy-greens-and-family-farms/#more-362 to submit comments about this issue.

Bottom line, as a result of the e-coli spinach scare the USDA wants to regulate leafy green farming policies in a very restrictive way that will impact small & medium farms especially ones that grow diverse crops.

To do this online follow these instructions
1) To submit online:
Go to http://www.regulations.gov/fdmspublic/component/main In the middle of the screen, you will see “Search Documents.”
In Step 1, choose “Documents with an open comments period”
In Step 2, choose “Department of Agriculture”
In Step 3, choose “PROPOSED RULES”
In Step 4, choose “Docket ID” and then type in “AMS-FV-07-0090”
Hit “Submit.”
Next, you will see a column titled “Comments, add/due by.” Click on the tiny tan dialogue icon, and you are now ready to submit your information and your comment.

This is what I wrote:

As a US citizen who frequently purchases organic leafy green produce from local sources, I am
deeply concerned about the proposed regulations in AMS-FV-07-0090. Our small and medium
scale local farms are a valuable resource to our state and contribute to our growing local

The costly and overly burdensome regulations for small- and medium-scale growers could drive
these farmers out of business which could cause significant financial harm to our rural state. As
a consumer of leafy greens and a supporter of environmentally sustainable, local food systems,
I urge the USDA to not support one-size-fits-all requirements that would dictate to farmers how
to grow their vegetables, especially when such guidelines are not evidence based and are written
by and for large-scale operations, not small local farms for whom these regulations would be
prohibitive to their sustainability.
