  • 2 Tips for New Raw Foodists - and a Note About Bananas   by  The Wanted     13 y     3,240       3 Messages Shown       Blog: Raw Food for One
    This is a tip I am passing on from Aimee. She has a health food store that is online I believe, but sorry, I cannot remember any other details of how to find her (unless you join David Wolfe's pay site "The Best Day Ever" dotcom).

    Anyhow, what she said is something I have learned again and again and easily forget about so I think it bears repeating now and again:

    If you are new to eating all or mostly all raw, DO NOT GO HUNGRY. Make sure to have plenty of raw foods to eat all the time.

    This is especially a good tip for parents who are hoping to transition their children to raw diet. NOT a good time to limit choices of food. Offer a cornucopia and/or lots of whatever you (or the child or whomever) wants to eat unless it is something you know is overboard.

    Example of overboard: my son at age 5 or 6 went overboard for frozen bananas that I would put through the Champion blender with the homogenization blank. (It comes out like soft serve ice cream.) He ate SO many bananas that after a month or three he developed a sensitivity or allergy to bananas. Now he is 23 years old and still cannot handle more than about half a banana before it makes the roof of his mouth tickle!

    On the other hand, bananas are also not above suspicion as far as being a food that POSSIBLY is not really a good quality raw food. David Jubb, a raw guru from the New York area is positively DOWN on them, David Wolfe finds it hard to say anything good about them, and I believe there was one other raw guru that had a big problem with them (can't remember who it was).

    I think it might actually be the KARMA of the people who have been controlling world banana crops for export and import that might be the actual problem. I learned about this by reading one of Jim Hightower's books. I think it was the one called something like "No One is in the Middle of the Road Except Dead Armadillos." Jim used to be one of my neighbors and he is a REAL good guy. In my mind he is a superhero in a nervous mouse's costume.

    Anyhow, Jim was telling about this place (can't remember the name) where we used to get at least a big portion of our bananas and some big mega-corporation came in and bullied whomever they had to bully so that ALL the bananas would come from South or Central America instead -- even though the country that was selling the bananas had only ONE other industry -- that of selling HEROIN. And KNOWINGLY, they left that country to have NO OTHER INDUSTRY but heroin trade. For me, that in itself is reason enough to want to just simply boycott bananas. Yanno? Unless I'm in India or someplace where they are grown.

    Here's wishing you a SUPER day, from 102°F in Austin, Texas (nearly every day for the past 4 weeks it's been this hot, but I'm not going to complain because I can handle heat better than cold...!!!),

    Michele

    July 16th UPDATE: Another tip for people who want to be able to "go raw" faster, this time from David "Avocado" Wolfe: VEGETABLE JUICES.

    Avocado points out by the way that as a person moves from eating meating to eating vegetarian or vegan the sugar balance is difference. Whereas a meat-eater may be able to handle a lot of carrot juice and it works great for him or her, as that person eats less meat the sugars become more powerful to the person and one would do better to use less (or no) carrots in the vegetable juices.

      Really good post for sure. I do love and eat a lot of bananas. I wonder what you eat in your smoothies without bananas and absolutely no blueberries here in Jordan.

        I have found than when I can get them avocados are very nice about adding a creamy texture to smoothies, and of course there are many, many different fruits and things that can be used.

        I have been overall getting away from making so many smoothies, partly because there is too much temptation for me to go overboard with sweets (since even naturally-occurring sugars in organic fruits affect the blood sugar) -- and partly because I'm just not feeling very attracted to smoothies for the past year, with the exception of cacao smoothies, which are pretty dense the way I make them with about 3-4 TBL home-powdered cacao, a couple handfuls of brazil nuts, a handful of pecans or other nut such as cashews or walnuts, 2 TBL honey (already too much!), stevia (I like it sweet), some vanilla bean or vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Sometimes I add bee pollen or other superfoods. This is a very highly concentrated drink. I used to mix just the cacao and nuts first with about 3 c. water and strain it, then return it to the blender to add the other ingredients to give me a creamier and more milk-liked texture, but for fiber and economy usually now just drink it without straining it as it really isn't bad that way to me at all. Adding an avocado to this would be great.

        Another thing that adds a sense of creaminess is cashews, but I generally avoid overdoing the cashews and try not to have more than a handful on any one day. Another possibility is fresh meat from young coconuts. Hope that helps!
