Raw Food Happy Mail!

Raw Food World Stash
You don’t have to buy a lot of fancy stuff to eat a raw food diet. However, there are some “fancier” items that I LOVE and I can’t buy them locally. That’s when I click on over to Raw Food World. In my opinion, they have the biggest selection of healthy, yummy foods…and the BEST customer service around. They also send lots of little samples and goodies with your order, which is delightful. And Matt Monarch is the owner…he’s just a fun guy in general 🙂

When my first box of goodies arrived…I practically ran out to the UPS truck to help him bring it in. You can see the contents of my box above…sprawled out comfortably on my living room rug. In this shipment, I got:

A few days later, I ordered a dehydrator, teflex sheets, sunflower seeds for sprouting, and a pH test kit. Yay! More on those in future blog posts.

When you click on these links it automatically registers it under my name, so that I receive a little bit of $$ from your sale. So…if you’re going to order it anyway, but sure to use my link! 🙂 You can also link directly to it in the upper right hand corner of my blog. Affiliate or not…I would still order from Matt. This is super high quality food and he knows his stuff. Happy ordering!

    Sara: I am salivating at your mail! We are still somewhere on that Raw Spectrum. Have you read a book that talks about Raw and Kids? I have been looking for one this weekend. I know Paul Nisson is raising his baby raw so maybe he will write a book along the way. One more question….what dehydrator did you buy? We are shopping for that and a breville via craigslist.
    Thanks for your constant raw food encouragement here at Happy Foody. I read on FB that your ph is alkaline! Woohoo! You should have an Alkalinity party or something – that’s exciting!

    I really love your blog…just encouraged me to use my chia more frequently. I also just dumped some kale in my green smoothie…
    Have a great day,
    Namaste, Mandy

    I have been using that Calm drink (I am using Mama Calm) while pregnant and it has done WONDERS for me….was it you that originally recommended it to me? I don’t remember but I like it a lot. Matt has been struggling with sleep apnea and anxiety lately and he takes the regular Calm and it helps him too. Good stuff!

    Mandy…yay for chia and kale! 🙂

    Laurel…I don’t think it was me. I just got those as a sample with my order, but haven’t tried them yet. So glad it’s working for you! That’s awesome.

    Deanna…
    The best book about raw kids I’ve seen is “Baby Greens”
    http://www.amazon.com/Baby-Greens-Live-Food-Approach-Children/dp/1583941371

    Jingee and Storm also have an ebook about it. It’s on this page…scroll down on the left. eBook #3 I think:

    The dehydrator we got is the Excalibur 4-tray. I don’t do a lot of dehydrating and wanted a smaller unit, but with a bigger family, I would go with the 9 tray for sure. Click the word dehydrator above to be taken to the one I bought.

    I am so tempted to get a food dehydrator… and to just click the link to the one you have since I am pretty sure you did the good research and I am not feeling researchy right now!

    Any negatives that you suspect w/ this particular dehydrator other than just size issues? One thing too is that I couldn’t find on the link anything that expressed how much energy it uses… if it’s more or less than “standard” dehydrators. Any feedback about that you know of?

    And that Calm stuff is killer good… we give out samples where I work all the time… leg cramps are a huge one that people use it for… I can’t say I’m a fan of the taste, but the benefits are worth it. Ooh… if you take too much for your body you can get over constipation, too… my boyfriend found out the hard way on that one 🙂

    Jessica..in my mind, there just isn’t even another dehydrator to consider. Excalibur is THE dehydrator to buy if you’re trying to control heating temps. Don’t know about energy usage…but I seem to remember reading that it’s pretty low because the temp is so low.

    question about the dehydrator…is it made of plastic? And how do you feel about plastic touching your food as it warms? Do you know if it is BPA and phthalate free? Thanks for the help!

    Also…I would like to eat more raw…but some of this stuff seems so overwhelming, where did you begin?

    Hello there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Reading through this post reminds me of my
    good old room mate! He always kept chatting about this.
    I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read.

    Thanks for sharing!

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
