"Generally, it's assumed you start dry. Really, though, unless you're baking I don't see a big reason to follow measurements. Intuitive food prep is rather nice. I understand you want to watch the calories, though. Especially with…"
"Oh my gosh, what an incredibly helpful discussion!! This was so fascinating, all of the comments!! I feel like I should be paying someone for this, maybe I will just order through Penni's amazon or something :). Had NO idea about Dr. Fuhrman--I…"
"i would definitely steam them or cook the mushrooms lightly since you enjoy them that way. I saw a news story awhile back that mushrooms in the raw state have cancer promoting properties. I figured it was hype but maybe not. here…"
"Mushrooms are sooo amazing. <3 I'm not sure how many mushrooms are too much and I can't find a good gauging system online. :( I think I heard that cooking just makes what they offer more bio-available but it really does kill some of…"
"Yah, rotation and balancing those out with sprouts, different veggies, and non sweet fruits may be more ideal. Wow, I made a mushroom (raw) soup last night and I love mushrooms raw and on a daily basis, I'm going to limit them after this.…"
"Fully raw, most of the time. Sometimes I bake the sweet potatos and the beets are more often juiced or blended into an avocado-based dressing/sauce. The horse radish is usually sauced as well~

"I actually do use the cronometer. :3 I'm usually sitting below my RDA on some small things but far too much in things like B6 and vitamin C. I keep my calories around 1600 (100 above the point where starvation would typically kick in) which is…"
"Wow! Good for you! So inspirational! Congrats on your fitness and muscles! Perhaps you are getting all you need. Have you read Paul Risse and Penni Shelton's new ebook on intuitive eating? It might be interesting to keep track…"
About Me: (at least a couple of sentences; ex: family, interests, hobbies, favorite quote, personal mission statement, etc
New raw vegan not accepted by 30bananasaday cult. .-. Looking to have some support and questions answered.
How did you hear about Raw Food Rehab?
Looking for a raw vegan community on Google that wasn't food-nazi-like.
What percentage of your current diet would you estimate is raw foods? (this answer many change over time)
Currently about 90% after 1 week - still consuming chocolate and I have some fish tempting me. ;.;
How are you hoping this community can best support you in your journey? (moral support, transition advice, recipes, inspiration, fitness tips, etc)
Inspiration and just general support for the most part. I don't have family or friends interested in changing with me.

Fully agreed - I believe my consumption of chocolate and possibly fish is what got my application "booted" on 30bananas.
