  • Have you decided to have more raw vegan foods in hopes to eat just them one day?
  • Or maybe you woke up one morning and decided to be a raw vegan right away… You were so excited at the beginning but now came across a few hurdles and need help?
  • Is there a specific topic you would like me to discuss? Or take a look at?

 

Here you can post whatever worries/concerns you. I will try to address it either in an article or directly on this page.

  1. I don’t know if I could go totally vegan, but I love vegetables and could see myself eating nothing but them for days. Are there meat substitutes that would fill the void for us meat lovers? I really could see myself going vegan, much healthier and all. I already do not buy canned veggies. Everything is fresh or frozen.

    • Hello,

      I would say raw dulse (type of seaweed) really reminds me of meat (like beef jerky or dried salmon).

      Also, raw mushrooms, especially the ones that are dried but not soaked, so, yes, raw, dried, unsoaked mushrooms.

      About 15 years ago, I was eating a lot of soy products (cooked) and they tasted a lot like meat for sure. Something like very tender, juicy, low-fat, fried pork, seriously. Obviously, you have to look at the quality of soy products (no additives, not genetically modified, etc.). Bob’s Red Mill Organic Textured Soy Protein (TSP) looks pretty good.

      Try and see which one works for you!

  2. hello i would like to know more

  3. After listening to B.C. on only eat raw foods I feel there is little hope for me as I eat to much fruit and I cannot imagine eating a sweet potatoe raw. They are just way to hard and I do not have the cutting machines to slice them so thin that they can be eaten.
    I have been making an effort for two years to eat vegan and avoid processed foods and vegetable oils but have found no increase in my health. I see many claim that I should experience better health but keep finding what I can eat and what I should avoid is very limiting
    Where can I go to find a list of foods that are considered OK by the Hippocrates Institute?

    • Hi Peter,

      Thank you for dropping by. We will try to overcome your challenges 🙂

      After listening to B.C. on only eat raw foods I feel there is little hope for me as I eat to much fruit and I cannot imagine eating a sweet potatoe raw.

      Are you eating too much fruit because you feel hungry or something else?

      You don’t have to eat a sweet potato raw. Yes, it IS too starchy to eat it raw in large amounts. However, if you put 1/2-1 potato in your smoothie and blend it, it should digest well (just eat slowly). It’s full of beta-carotene which is good for eyes and skin.

      Now, if you force yourself to eat a lot of fruit to feel full, please shift your focus to complex carbohydrates (I had exactly the same problem).
      To feel full, make complex carbs the bulk of your calories. Here is a list of complex carbohydrate foods you can eat raw:
      I’d also add quinoa, regular oats, and amaranth to this list.

      Very important: before eating these foods, either soak, sprout or ferment them.
      Soaking, sprouting or fermenting is actually what enables you to eat these foods raw, so make sure you do this step!

      Here is a set of tips to feel fuller on raw veganism:

      I have been making an effort for two years to eat vegan and avoid processed foods and vegetable oils but have found no increase in my health

      Eating vegan, avoiding processed food, and oils is a big step towards acquiring a vital resilient body – so you are on the right path – well done!
      If you haven’t noticed increase in your health, that may have to do with what you still haven’t eliminated from your diet. In order for me to assist you, can you describe your everyday diet including every little snack and drink you consume? Also, please include your exercise routine, any supplements you take, and other health habits.

      I see many claim that I should experience better health but keep finding what I can eat and what I should avoid is very limiting

      You mean the diet is too limiting? You can eat any food of plant origin! It’s just has to be palatable, wholesome (minimally processed), raw, and preferably organic. There are dozens and dozens of different grains, seeds, fruits, herbs, mushrooms, berries, nuts, greens!


      Where can I go to find a list of foods that are considered OK by the Hippocrates Institute?

      Hippocrates Institute advocates tons of foods, literally.

      If you browse on their website here, you will find the foods they use and consider acceptable.

      Among the Institute’s favourites (meaning the foods that visitors to the Institute eat) are various sprouted foods, seaweeds and wheatgrass juice.

      Also, this article may help you to see that a raw vegan diet is a normal human diet designed by Nature. And the very notion that it’s extreme only there as a result of people’s upbringing and culture of a town they live in:

      Ok, get back to me with your diet and any other questions 🙂

  4. I eat oats in the morning cooked with some herbs like cinnamon, marjoram, oregano leaf. I try to get fruits in season like plums, blueberries, apples, Then for lunch I eat cooked rice. Dinner is sweet potato and squash I saw one recipe on this site that looks good with use of a chopper for onions and 2 or 3 other vegies that looks good so I will have to get a chopper and try this out. Advice I have been given is to use persistence and determination. Hopefully my time is well spent here at this site to get the results I desire. Often I buy products and information without results. The kale I eat raw as a snack seems to help me breath better but only for a few minutes. Thankyou for your reply to my inquiry

    • Hi Peter,

      I apologize for delay.

      Rice, oatmeal and sweet potato are good (make sure you soak them in acidic medium beforehand).
      However, you want to introduce other complex carbs into your diet – so that there is more variety.
      For example, quinoa, teff, amaranth, naked oats, yams. Read this 2019 report and introduce the foods I describe there 🙂

      I don’t see any greens in your diet.. Are you eating them? You need them because they contain a variety of phytonutrients in large amounts.
      Try to eat at least 1 cup of blended greens every day.
      Use 3-5 of your favourite greens and herbs and blend (in a blender) them with lemon, a little salt, 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil, and your favourite spice.
      For example, use romaine lettuce, spinach, arugula, dill or parsley.

      You are saying that you don’t see any improvements in your health. Is there a condition that you are trying to improve? If yes, what is it?
