Health / Arsenic: don't eat your vegetables
« on: October 07, 2018, 05:14:37 pm »
Arsenic is present in veg (dark leafy greens, cabbage, brassicas), root crops (such as carrots, beets, radish etc), fruits juices (apple, pear, grapes), rice, organic or not, makes no difference (and brown rice has much higher levels of arsenic), seaweed.
Veg with less arsenic are "fruit" veg such as cucumber, tomatoes, squash.
Groundwater can have high arsenic levels, and rice from Texas for instance is more toxic than in other places in the US, because of previous cotton fields being contaminated with the toxins that are stored in the earth for a long time.
There is also some talks about arsenic in seafood, mussels, dark meat fish, but some say it's a different kind of arsenic and not as toxic. Another source of arsenic is non organic chicken, as they are fed food laced with arsenic, it makes them grow faster and increases their appetite. And the chicken manure of these chickens, used very often on rice fields and other, is full of arsenic.
Bangladesh has a huge arsenic problem in its groundwater, and so all the crops are more or less contaminated and some crops absorb more of the toxins than others (rice, leafy greens, some fish, potatoes, root veg).

Off Topic / cravings... what your body needs/wants?
« on: August 27, 2018, 06:30:59 pm »
Not sure how serious this study is:
http://www.dailytransformations.com/food-cravings-here-is-what-your-body-really-wants/
But maybe some interesting points like craving for bread = eat more high protein foods.

... are found not only in fish and mussels but also in some chickens (Mexican), some brands of sea salt, some honey and beer, quite a lot in bottled water and indoor dust.

Health / Teeth
« on: July 02, 2018, 12:08:32 am »
I have very sensitive teeth (because they actually somehow damaged), and I can feel after I've eaten/drank something, how my teeth and their roots are reacting. Here are some observations:
Good:
-Raw animal fat feels really great for my teeth, also raw meat, sometimes organs
-sometimes alcohol, fermented stuff, green tea, some greens.
Bad:
-chocolate, coffee, too cold/hot food, grains, too much sugar (though moderate amount don't bother me)

Off Topic / Traditional asian foods... some amazing stuff:
« on: June 15, 2018, 05:16:40 pm »
Some cool recipes in Asia mostly, not really raw paleo, but... quite near in some cases, not really mono meals:
Bali: Lawar relish (mostly raw, onion, spices, coconut, fresh herbs and veg, though not always all ingredients raw) and sometimes mixed with raw pig blood.
Yunnnan, south China: raw pig sashimi, including skin
Japan: high quality free-range raw chicken sashimi in nice teriyaki restaurant, apparently tasty and tender.
Korea: fermented raw fish sashimi
Hawaii:
-Lomi lomi  (some sort of salad with tomato-onion plus raw fish)
-Poke: raw fish/tuna, tender with marinade, apparently amazing stuff.
Never tried any of these things, but honestly... quite tempting. What I like with S E Asia is that because they dont really rely on dairy, they are big fans of animal fats and innards/organs, even if cooked.
I have noticed that many people addicted to dairy are disgusted by animals fats and organs. (Which is quite a majority of people in the West).

Off Topic / mussels with opioids?

https://www.natureworldnews.com/articles/38913/20180526/seattles-puget-sound-mussels-test-positive-for-opiods.htm

Not sure what to think about it. If there are that much opioids in those waters, it could also be some smugglers dumping their stash in the water if they though they might get caught... But on the other hand, I have read that the US is nowadays the only place among modern countries where heavy drugs use in increasing, and specifically heroin.
I do know that in Stockholm for instance, a city that prides it self for having good quality tap water safe for drinking, there was some tests confirming a high presence of pharmaceuticals and especially antidepressants. The pee/sewage water is recycled into "safe" water (sounds kind of disgusting actually), which is not that safe.

Something similar has happened to the Chernobyl area, lots of wildlife has come back/taken over.

Off Topic / worms eating plastic
« on: June 01, 2018, 04:26:16 am »
I have tried live wax worms, they are really tasty.
As they have the ability to eat beeswax, maybe that could the reason:
https://www.natureworldnews.com/articles/37569/20170425/bizarre-plastic-eating-wax-worm-might-be-the-answer-to-plastic-pollution.htm

But I would not want to eat some that have just eaten plastic.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / fluorescent bananas
« on: May 20, 2018, 07:55:05 pm »
To those who eat/have eaten unripe fruits. UV sensitive animals can pick the ripe bananas:

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/6152638/Bananas-turn-bright-blue-under-ultra-violet-light-helping-animals-pick-ripe-ones.html

I never eat bananas in Europe, they taste boring after haven tried so many different kinds in Asia, and quite often with some seed(s) in them. Local super ripe bananas are amazing.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Now is the right time of the year for ...
« on: April 29, 2018, 03:25:37 am »
... honey bee larvae ! Anyway here in Germany. If you ask a bee keeper, he/she usually get rid of the extra "males" (still larvae), this time of the year if you are lucky,  and you get normally the whole thing with the wax. I chew the whole thing and spit out the wax, were juicy. I heard the russians squeeze out the liquid from the wax.
Btw, they were still alive, so this is really live food.

Off Topic / crazy vegans
« on: February 18, 2018, 02:20:41 am »
 In Lierre Keith book "The vegetarian myth" I read that some vegans were discussing in forum that we humans should interfere with  carnivores (animals) eating other animals: a vegan wrote that someone should build a fence in Serengeti (a safari/national park in Kenya) so that the big cats will not kill and eat the wildebeest and zebras. He knew that the carnivore would survive, because  they don't need meat, as he had seen his dog eat grass and so that was the proof that carnivores could live on grass... No one objected, and many agreed that thee've seen their cat doing the same...

When I was a fruitarian, there was this "experienced" fruitarian that many were listening to, and he seriously believed that you could train lions to become vegans by giving them avocados, and many really were believing him.
I was once on a small safari in Tanzania, and I was travelling there with another fruitarian. There were many very strict rules for this national park, it was absolutely not allowed to throw out any food scrapes or anything from the jeep, and absolutely not any seeds from fruits etc, because of fear of invasive plant species disrupting that particular ecosystem. What this guy did, was that he had brought his stash of fruit seeds (yeah, this is a typical fruitarian behaviour, always saving fruit seeds, to later spread them) , and was throwing them out from the window in the safari park, so that in the future we might start to live in a fruitarian paradise...
 Many fruitarians have told that they think "normal" trees (read: the one that do not produce any fruits) are boring and should be replaced with fruit trees... They want to convert the whole planet into a huge fruit garden, not caring about nature, wilderness and different ecosystems. There is a reason for this: they are obsessed with fruits from the moment they wake up, I know, I was there...

Off Topic / Incandescent lightbulbs, anyone?
« on: December 16, 2017, 06:25:16 am »
I used only old school types of lightbulbs in my home, as is created less stress and a warmer light than all the other ones.
Led light have a blue light, that is cold and creates stress, and not good at night time, when it's time to sleep. This feels really artificial.
Incandescent light have more red light waves, (plus emit heat), and gives this warm glow that is relaxing.

Btw, what is this forums stand on fire? Many raw foodists are against fire. I feel that sitting next to a fire has a very grounding effect on me, and sometimes help me sleep better...

Hot Topics / Vegans and some of their weird ideas
« on: December 06, 2017, 02:02:49 am »
I remember as vegan and than a fruitarian, there where a lot of strange ideas out there. For instance:
- some vegans avoided organic food as it was probably grown with animal dung, (from enslaved animals etc...), and preferred food grown with chemicals. (Typical for the vegan fear of nature)
- avoiding mushrooms as they are beings from space
- not eating fermented foods, as yeast and bacteria are live beings (but, this is a joke, as there is bacteria naturally on veg/herbs/fruits)
- sexual fluids are not vegan
- feeding cats and dogs vegan food

What's actually interesting is that in many herbs, veg and s c vegan processed foods, there are insects remain, actually more that one might think, like in chocolate and peanut butter (plus some rodent hairs...).

Off Topic / Is it possible to change the food habits of people around you?
« on: November 28, 2017, 07:55:56 am »
My boyfriend is someone feeding on pizzas, cookies, bread and cheese, he a smoker and occasional drinker... He does like meat, and eats mett sometimes, a german breakfast white bread with raw porc, (but I would not eat the meat as it is not pastured or organic and with preservatives). But there's something he loves more than anything else, and it is: pizza: his favorite food... Before I met him, I hadn't had a pizza for 14 years. I had a few weeks where he totally dragged my down in his dirty food habits, but then stopped sharing meals with him...
He is very afraid of germs... and it's very difficult to try to change his mind on things. Somehow I feel we are getting more and more apart, and I miss sharing food with him.
How do you deal with people around you? Sharing food with others, or not?
Somehow I feel I need to hide this raw meat eating, people thinks it's too much somehow... How do you get out of the closet lol?

Health / Cured chocolate addiction with meat
« on: November 06, 2017, 04:57:05 am »
My lifelong addiction has been chocolate, sounds like a joke for some, but for some people chocolate can be really addictive. Been eating it almost every day since I was 5 or 6, and was able only once before to stay away from it for a longer period of time, when I was a fruitarian  and staying in the tropics. But fruitarianism does not work for me in Europe, I freeze and get craving, so ended up eating loads of fruiits AND chocolate...
Meat can give me some sort of bio-chemical bliss/calm that I have not felt otherwise with other food, I think zinc is also what I need. I thought I was allergic to oysters, but I realize that my rashes that I get from eating theim are because of too much minerals and /or overload of copper (chocolate is full of copper). Used to eat a lot of shellfish etc but cant stand them anymore, as for meat , I can manage small amounts of it, as I have been a vegetarian/vegan for such a some time before.  And cooked meat gives me a very heavy feeling in the stomach, so eating raw meat is easier for me that cooked.

Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet / Small fruit more "natural"?
« on: October 31, 2017, 07:18:43 pm »
In my travels I had the chance to test  some different kinds of fruits, one that I loved (and never had to buy, because I found loads of ripe fruits lying on the ground, nobody seemed really to care about them) is JUJUBE, in north Thailand, but you can also find in China, Africa... They are light brown, 1-2 cm in diameter, quite sweet with a bit of sour (but not a lot), and you can stuff your pockets with and snack on them... tasty, in my opinion. Another small fruit that is really sour (and sweet) is tamarind, I really enjoy small amounts of it... the small size of these fruits is practical, you eat them like nuts or berries, but they don't turn into a mash as berries and you don't have to shell them as nuts... and unlike a jackfruit for instance, (which is also totally unpractical to carry around, unless it's pre-cut), these small fruits are also not so easy to overeat of, as the taste is more intense and you need less, and ingest far less sugars.
