puzzling question: why no cashews?
in this case i don't know why since cashews are right behind almonds in nutrient density.
from an edgar cayce reccomendation: "rather use the fruit and vegetable diet. the fats should be more from nuts than meats; for these, as we find, would be most helpful - and especially cashew nuts, almonds, filberts, and the like.” (1000-11)
however, going by the sheer volume of ec reccomendations, it seems that almonds are ranked as the top kernal in the kingdom of the nuts.
keep in mind that a couple of nuts will do ya....cayce talks in terms such as 2 almonds a day.
however, you have my permission to add 1/2 of an undoctored, virgin cashew nut to the above mentioned two almonds...
but you do so at your own risk, of course.
any time bro....luv, billybobbutternut

did some research, this could be the reason why:
the cashew tree is a fast-growing evergreen that produces a fruit and a nut. the fruit, or cashew apple, is usually discarded since it ferments rapidly. the nut, which is actually a seed, is surrounded by an outer shell that contains urushiol, a skin irritant toxin also found in poison ivy. there is also a toxic resin in the shell layer that can get on the cashew nut itself, making it inedible. to make the cashew seeds edible, most manufacturers use heat, steaming the shell at high temperatures. some companies have developed a special tool that they claim opens the shell without ever letting the toxin get on the cashew.
off topic, but i am looking to start an all raw diet asap. i've been looking for the best possible dehydrator (thus far i've been leaning towards getting an [please pm for brand] but idk) before i drop all of that money i figured i'd ask around for advice. i certainly don't want one if it contains bpa, so stainless steel would be nice. help please

bad news about bad water.
our bodies are from 55% to 78% water, so its a no-brainer that in-taking good
water rather than bad is a major health goal.
one of the most profound negative impacts on planetary health has been masquerading as a positive, good-guy health boon.
the truth about bottled water comes as a shock to multi millions of loyal, but brain-washed, consumers... are you one of the victims?
after seeing this vid i'm now even concerned about all my supposedly health-giving freezer-frozen veggies hibernating in their (death-- dealing?) plastic envelopes...
3d ain't what its cracked up to be! time to move on....i hope.

well, i haven't read all of the ra. my nutrition style is i try to eat a basic diet that gives an okay amount of nutrients. sometimes, i don't eat a variety of foods but take a vitamin.
however,a few days ago, i was at the vegetable/fruit section in the store. the prices have gone up on nearly all vegetables here. so, many people are growing foods now. it seems that meats, also, are more filling. maybe there's a way to make veggies more filling, too, but they don't keep me full for as long of a time as starches or meats. my point is that with prices going up on the vegetables and fruits, i don't think one can really get around buying meats (chicken, beef, etc.) and starches. meats and starches are probably not as healthy for us though. since eating more vegetables, i feel much better.

ive noticed i eat much less food since switching to a raw food diet. not to mention the laundry list of other very positive mental, emotional, spiritual, psychic, social, and physical changes. i drink some fresh vegetable juice or a smoothie in the morning, and have some avacado, sunflower seeds, maybe a bannana or two etc and thats all i eat for the day. i don't feel hungry eating like this, in fact i feel better than i ever thought was possible. most hunger is actually emotional hunger disguised as physical hunger. unhealthy and cooked foods are very addicting. once you break that addiction, you eat just enough to really fill you up, and your body needs less and less.

You are what you eat.........
ever hear that phrase? it was a slogan of the 60's/70's. group consciousness was moving in all kinds of directions at that time.......i, myself, was compelled to become vegan when the smell of cooking meat repulsed me. i think that what we eat is a matter of social influence and personal preference. five hundred years ago we wouldn't have thought of having this discussion, we'd just eat what we could get.
i found that the strict vegan approach was lacking in essential amino acids found in meat and that the diet itself lifted my consciousness levels to such an extent of high frequency vibration that my "head" was always "in the clouds" spiritually. i became too addicted to the "high" and was cautioned by "teachers" to "become grounded!"
with the "chakra" work i do, i use a catch phrase that suits........"feed the root." yea, finding the balance is a good guideline, but sometimes that takes years! it's such a relative experience that is in constant flux.
i like a good steak or piece of prime rib every now and then, but it's not my staple diet.
as far as the plant healers are concerned, i think that plants do feel "pain" on some level we don't understand, yet. (this "wanderer" has the ability to hear the frequency vibration of plant's communications.)
i gravitate toward the native american's practice and follow their guidelines. i thank everything that sustains this body in this lifetime.
you are what you think.................

yes, they say that raw foods are best. also, uncooked vegetables have more of what we need rather than cooked vegetables. i think its because you cook the vitamins out of foods-so i guess that raw foods are probably best. vegetabe juice is healthy, and i need to get back to doing that.
