    What a great idea for a blog. I want to incorporate more raw foods into my vegan diet, and you're doing a great job at cutting out objections over time, cost, and intimidation.

    My only other qualm with raw – particularly because I'm an endurance athlete – is the extremely high fat content and very low protein content. Do you just not worry about protein? Or if you do seek it out, what are your go-to protein-rich raw foods? I'm sure you get the protein question all the time – I'm vegan, and I know I do, so I can only imagine how often it's brought up to you! I am curious, though.

    Keep up the good work! I'll be reading…


  5. Amber,

    That's one of the reasons I wanted to keep track of nutritional information, so I could answer those questions for myself …

    Here's what I figure (and I could be wrong! … but it makes sense to me) …

    Human breast milk contains 0.8-0.9% protein, 4.2% fat, and 6.9 – 7.2% carbohydrates … and that's pretty much the ratio of daily macronutrients in what I post here … Seems like that's pretty spot on for human nutrition

    I don't really worry about protein … For lots of reasons …

    Yes, the fat content is sometimes higher than I'd like for myself … what I'm finding with raw foods (and a budget!) is that getting adequate calories can require some higher fat foods … Of course, this can also be done with low fat things like bananas … but "get 6 bananas, peel and eat" doesn't make for a very interesting recipe!

    Thanks bunches for your input 🙂

    Your recipes always look good. Although I still don't understand pomegranates. They taste weird to me and spending $$ for some seeds inside a giant fruit doesn't make sense to me. Guess I am not "pom wonderful"

    Keep up the great blog!
