I made sauerkraut that I had in salad every day for 3 years - but recently I went away for 9 weeks and got out the habit of it......

when I was vegan I ate - rice, brown lentils, steamed vegetables - potatoes, carrots, broccoli, etc, cold pressed olive oil, soy sauce, rye bread, lots of avocado's, tahini, marmite.....  I went through a phase eating pasta and salads.... with tomato and veg topping....  It's funny but I can't really remember much about what I ate.....  I also used to eat out at vegan cafes - I'd have raps with salad and toppings made with tahini and they used to put lots of fruit in there, which I didn't much like - banana and sultanas... !?  I had heaps of things in the fridge like flax oil - and minerals suspended in water or something..... and other pills.....

You cannot stick to salads that is probably I lot of where you went wrong last time. You need legumes nuts and grains for protein balance and fat intake. Vegetables have very low protein contents in general. Most of the problems with grains are associated with Gluten so just avoid oats   

spelt wheat barley etc....In relation to Live cultures they are present on a lot of foods anyway but I would recommend  capsules as it is more reliable and you will do it daily where as you may not make Saurkraut every day. 

   Just remember nature is not always best its just a guide of where to start....Pyrethrum is natural you don't wan't the ton your sandwich.....As stated natural will get you to middle age use science to go the rest of the way reliably. So do your research on supplements and class them in your mind in categories of "proven to work" "reasonable evidence that they work" and "worth looking into" that way you can keep your eye on the research whilst still maintaining a fairly modern base diet. Thats How I do it anyway.

This is an outreach talk just to get people aware. The substitutes are there  as a stepping stone to a whole foods diet. To keep you on track when you have cravings you may use a little of this or a little of that. Any serious Vegan goes straight to a whole foods ingredient diet. He is just trying to show people its possible to change. Some vegetables are not good raw as the Glycoalkanoids are toxic. Read my post on the toxic potato......

veganape - can you recommend any good vegan recipe books?  I'm looking at the book depository - but I'm really not into any soy products or anything that mentions fake chicken or fake fish etc.... I just want a book that gives straight vegan recipes of whole foods....  I've got the Krishna vegetarian book - which has some good recipes from around the world that are vegetarian - but I'm after a vegan one too.....  Colour me vagan looks alright, in fact I've just found gluten free vegan - which looks good - as I like to avoid gluten also.... so it might have something good in it - although I hate wasting money on books that are rubbish and not what I'm after - so if you have any tips I would be grateful.....

it's a bit like watching domestic violence and then presuming that all marriages are like that.... not everyone has an abusive culture......

there are casomophines and also glutemorphines - from gluten foods - 

This is when the stomach acid isn't strong enough to break it down and trigger the next stage of digestion - 


bee vomit is great - my kids love it!  it can be great for allergies if it's local honey....

you see you're still going to end up with cancer and heart disease eating that fake crap - because it's just going to feed the pathogens in your body - it's about changing your taste pallet so that you can eat just plain simple foods that haven't been industrialised and packaged.... you think that this is more ethical than eating meat!  what a load of crap - look at all that packaging .... hello global warming......... what the!
