But cooking some parts of the animal that you won't normally be able to eat (skin, bones...) is for me a plus, less waste, eating the "whole" animal, plus you get some extra nutrition not found in organs and muscle meat.
Sometimes it's not cooked that i crave, but stimulants. I think that taken just as "medecine", or once in a while, it's not too bad.
Coffee mixed with raw whipped egg (whole or only yolk) tastes great. The vietnamese have such a coffee, except that they add condensed milk, which of course would spoil the whole thing. And, you might also add some sweetener/honey in the stuff, but just coffee and egg tastes nice.
And, sometime I miss combinations of food, that can also be done instead of eating cooked mono foods, and experimenting with new combos

Ok, so I know this is not raw , but once in a while I cook chicken wings, somehow I crave the skin, and I feel ok afterwards. (worse would be for me just a piece of muscle, that would be a waste, and taste better raw in my opinion). But for stuff that is too hard to eat raw, personally I don't have a problem cooking it, if it is not too big amounts.
I remember some amazing stuff I had at the local market in Asia: water buffalo skin, was steamed or something, I think, tasted great.

Try to completely stop eating extra salt for some time. Then after some weeks/months, eat something very salty. For me, it tastes disgusting.
I have now been eaten quite a lot of salty food because I was travelling and could not eat my normal food, and I am amazed how used I have become to the taste of salt.

Another thing that can be satisfying if I need cooked starches: beans. They taste great and I can digest them well, if soaked.
I avoid lentils.

I agree with your comment, but concerning energy drinks, its more like a stimulant than a "food", in my opinion. And yes, i agree that we should be able to control what we ingest or not, but concerning kids, maybe the parents don't care/know about the effects of energy drinks, and believe or not, there is now an epidemic of insomnia among children and teen-agers, something that hardly existed years ago. Wifi, electromagnetic radiation plus other toxins and stimulants are some of the causes.

People talk about fermentation as if it would be some sort of art or something... it's become such a trend.
Fermentation happens if you don't use a fridge for instance, or let things age. Or if you don't pasteurise, or deep freeze or freeze dry... We have become obsessed about fermentation just because we are afraid of it! All these evil germs and bacteria that we must exterminate.

Rice is full of arsenic, even organic.
Potatoes absorb poisons easily (both natural or not), plus, they are a poisonous crop! And, they are full of oxalates and other anti-nutrients. I used to crave potatoes years ago, when I went raw/fruitarian. Now, I feel an instinctive dislike of them, it somehow happened overnight, my body tells me potatoes are toxic and they are not satisfying at all anymore.

I have known the answer of this question for many years. If I need to eat cooked food/starches, there is one BIG winner: chestnuts.
But they are not cheap, and not easily available. But they could become! We could plant more of these beautiful trees. They were a staple before grains took over, in many areas both in Europe, America, China/Japan.
The wood is also amazing, strong as oak, but lighter, can grow fast. 

Health / Arsenic: don't eat your vegetables

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).

Not sure how serious this study is:
But maybe some interesting points like craving for bread = eat more high protein foods.

About the Thai women being fat (not 4th in world, sorry, but on 2nd place in Asia), here are the facts:

It is actually well known that plastics mimic oestrogen's, and an overload of it can trigger obesity. In Thailand I have seen male tourists growing boobs (but not having them while in Europe), and now Thai women have become some of the fattest women of the world, I think in 4 or 5 place. It's hard to believe, but the moment you come to the countryside you'll see many of these bulldozers, no joke. There are other sources that triggers too much estrogen, and that can also be pesticides etc... Also, there is the habit among all the thais to buy takeaway food still steaming hot, from food stalls and transport it in transparent plastic bags, imagine how much of the plastic is leaching out in the hot food. You have no idea how much plastic there is in Thailand, totally scary.
 I can confirm that the last times I've gone to Thailand, my breasts were sore (when they should not), this was not normal.
This is also the reason Thailand is THE country of the ladyboys, men that want to "become" women. There is no shame anymore for the family to say that their son is a ladyboy, it is actually a status symbol to have one in the family.

Sounds a bit strange though... 4 years? Maybe the guy didn't want any kids or did it for some other reason lol

ok, not really funny as I feel quiet sorry for the goat:
What is funny is that India has a strange view on animals (for different reasons, but one of them is that they believe in reincarnation and they think that certain animals could have been humans in former lifetime, or will become one in the next).
I remember some news of a monkey that completely trashed and vandalised a shop and going for the biscuits etc, they arrested him and put him in jail for a short time. Some other strange news was a man who officially married a female dog, she had somehow saved his life, but he didn't plan to have a physical relation with the dog.

I've known very closely 2 people that had some very serious violent tendencies. Even though they were very different, both were very intelligent, charming, and people liked them and thought very well of them (and could not have imagined their violent side). They both had exceptional intelligence, and knew it. But they had huge (hidden) egos, and a serious problem taking criticism. This was when their violent side would emerge. Or, when proven wrong, I means, this happens to everybody... But these 2 guys in particular just could not take it at all.
I am not judging anyone here, I'm just trying to show that it's not that easy to think one might know someone and his/hers different sides.

Hm... first of all, no judgement, because we don't really know...
But just because we eat raw meat and organs does not mean most of us welcome a violent, aggressive attitude.
Many people do not know what violence is, or have not been subjected to it. I have known real violence and aggressive threats from big bullies, and I am not a big person. Yeah, I have a big mouth and am not afraid to stand up for something that is fair.
Is it all about size, being the biggest and strongest? Haha, what a joke...
This view of welcoming rape and unnecessary violence is very ugly...

"What does not kill you makes you stronger"
I got the red circle many years ago from a tick. I didn't go to the doctor. I've had different kind of symptoms, and it's all so complicated to see the big picture, there are so many variables involved, where the problems might come from, what they are triggered by, what is the cause.
I know that I have become much better, and it is true, I had problem digesting and eating meat, which has become much better since I eat raw meat (I can even eat cooked meat some times and not feel problematic symptoms). But the reason in my case, I am quite sure was partly due to the fact that I had been a vegetarian, vegan and then fruitarian for so many years. But it could in theory also be other reasons, I think the human body is so much more complex than we think.
We somehow need to be exposed to "nature", even the bad parts (to a certain extent).

... 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.

And... i remember when I was eating it, any kind of bread (made of wheat, rye, etc) felt much worse than eating sweet stuff (fruits, honey or even whole coconut sugar or raw sugar cane). I can actually eat quite high quantities of sweet stuff before I feel it in my teeth. The only grain that felt a bit less damaging was white rice, even though I don't recommended it. But I really remember the sensation on my teeth after having had any kind of bread, or grains.
Also, raw nuts (and seeds), not good at all for me.
Unripe fruits, also felt very bad, not recommended.

General Discussion / Re: Ways to stop a detox when it´s too heavy?
« on: July 04, 2018, 04:45:52 pm »
I've pushed fasting/detox too far in the past, when my body was very toxic, and I regret it, it actually did more harm then good. You really need to adapt to your specific situation/needs.
Sometimes the body needs fibers, greens to get rid of all the toxins. Or, you need extra energy to be able to move/be active to flush out the system. Or, you need total rest and relaxation.
It's very dangerous to play with detox the wrong way, I've done my mistakes in the past... Getting older=getting wiser/more experienced (for me anyway lol)

And there is this old, famous experiment, not sure who did it (was in Danmark I think): sprouting seeds did not work in a room with strong wifi.

Some recent research done on insects and mobile radiation, from "Vågbrytaren" (Swedish site)
- Difficulties to orient themselves, and forgot where the food/cache was placed, after cellphone exposure
- Problems with movement/walking after exposure (mobile, wifi, dect exposure)
- after 30 mn of wifi-router exposure, it took them 6-8 hr to recover, but some died after a couple of days
- a cellphone in stand by was enough for the ants to move their eggs as far as possible. When the cellphone was removed, they came back with the eggs to the original location.
- Bees exposed to cellphone radiation had fewer eggs, produced less honey, became confused, and had problem finding their way back to the hive.

A German report from Caspar Hallman and his team says that there has been a huge decline in the number of flying insects since the last 30 years. Their are many factors involved, but cellphones radiation is definitely one part of the problem.
