You Know You Are a Raw Foodist When?
Funny article. You brought out your inner Jeff Foxworthy. Well done. You should try that whole routine at the next Raw Spirit festival.
The best thing I read all day! Well done.
Hilarious! I love your humor Steve :)
This was the best one: you meet a breatharian and have to ask, “But where you do get your protein?" :D (ofc it was good only because the previous part)
And call me stupid, but I don't get this one: you shop for clothes in the children’s section. Please someone explain it or I can't sleep tonight...
...when you're housemates shout at you for filling a fridge designed for 6, whilst you try to figure out where to put the rest of the shopping
...when you eat all day and still lose weight
...when you go for a 2 mile run, but end up running 6 because it's relaxing
...when celery is a salty tasting treat
...when you can't remember your last drink of water, but are bursting to go!
I think I did the diet for about a month, maybe more, but couldn't afford to keep eating 10 fair trade bananas a day :( I felt good during it, but lost crazy amounts of weight because I still wasn't eating enough.
A nice post. These raw food updates help me keep going with my raw food diet :) All the benefits are hard to ignore, I really liked the part "you know how to cure cancer, heart disease, and diabetes… but no one believes you." Steve, do you still eat agave and tahini since some of it isn't considered raw?
Oh, I am still curious about the superfoods. If there was any benefit or still the thought that you are putting dollar bills in the blender for nothing?
There were so many funny parts I don't want to repost them all cause I'll just repost the whole article. But I really did love the thing about curing diseases, raw costco, and restoring my sense of hearing lost due to the blender.
Gotta disagree with the sex thing, though. Hahaha.
I just couldn't do it... just couldn't do it... food is such a great pleasure in life. So many tastes, so much cultural heritage.
Even if you promised me perfect health, I don't think I would accept the trade.
Good food is heaven on earth!!!
Sock in it
You never wash your socks at high temperature to keep the beneficial bacteria alive. After a year you pop then into a blender with one banana :D or two :D
Do people feed their pets on a raw foodie diet?
Hahaha, very funny! Loved it.
Makes me want to go raw as well, but also a little bit more scared, or is it excited?
mjukr: I dunno, I think raw food tastes pretty damn good. All I would miss out on is the burnt, greasy and meaty tastes that most people like, and I was never too fond of them anyways.
one thing i learn was that you have to eat more, one thing i noticed is that i weigh the same but i look thinner and even my parents have said so, i think it may be that they belief that no eating meat means your "weak" (perception)
Mjukr, Raw Food tastes amazing!! You're completely missing out. I wouldn't ever want to go back to SAD food. Not to mention once you're raw for awhile you start wanting more simple foods rather than constant gourmet.
Seriously have you tried raw pizza, lasagna, pasta, wraps, sushi, desserts?? I love salad more than ever-in fact I've become quite addicted to it. :D
Dan, many people do choose to feed their pets raw as well.
Plato, it's unnecessary to eat 10 bananas a day. Sounds like you were looking into being a fruitarian? They're more into large quantities like that. it's best to start raw with no rules & just eat whatever you want as long as it's raw.
At first I thought "solar gazing" should be "solar grazing" because I guessed it was using the sun's energy for food, but then I looked it up and it seems that "gazing" is correct. Well I look forward to seeing that as a 30 day trial :-)
Your coworkers pass by your desk while you're eating lunch and so many of them comment on wow that looks like a great salad...
You bring sliced zucchini with lemon juice and a sprinkle of sea salt to a party and all of the (non-raw) guests are "amazed" at how great it tastes
you walk by the corner diner on your way to work and the smell of muffins, pancakes and homefries that once lured you in now provokes the gag reflex...
Your lunchtote looks like you just came from a shopping trip to the farmers market
Like a bonobo, you constantly have a piece or fruit or a stalk in your mouth
People think you have gone over the edge when you are eating kelp out of the bag and do not choke
You look at whole wheat bread and cringe, before going raw you believed it to be "so much healthier"
you feel like a child again...4 times a day that is
you have extra time in your day to read about raw food, grow a garden, try a new recipe
your office bin looks like a compost bin at the end of the working day :)
I loved the one abot the blender! I have just spend over $1000 on mine! So true! And I am not even 100% yet!
Especially the ones about asking where you get your protein from.
Wow. Just wow. I loved that article, and I think it's one of Steve's shortest (I could be wrong).
-Your friends ask, "But where do you get the money?"
I'm addicted to a bean, too, but a much different one.
The 'But where do you get your protein?" gave me a snortle.
"...your breakfast smoothies include items from six continents and four oceans."
I'm curious about what people think of the ecological/environmental ramifications of maintaining a raw diet depending on where one lives... ?
For example, I live in central Canada. Our growing season is obviously shorter than areas further south. A lot of vegetables are local, wheat (but i guess you don't eat wheat if you eat raw), some grains, some berries, some meager apples (like crab apples) I think soy is also a local crop... but aside from that, everything else is shipped and transported into the city. With the whole eco/carbon footprint debate now-a-days... how do people think this idea translates to eating raw AND eating local? I'm just trying to think how people living very far north (like in Alaska or the Northern Canadian Territories) would eat raw and their impact on the environment when you take into consideration transportation issues, vs that of a largely local (but not raw) diet...
thoughts on the matter are appreciated...
ahaha this is great, a visitor referred me to this blog. My website is dedicated completely to "You know you're.." lists.
You can easily add more reasons or vote up or vote down reasons.

Hehe, I'm actually considering going raw, but I'm worried about my bloodpressure. My eating habits aren't that healthy and my bloodpressure is already quite low. If i start eating really healthy, I'm afraid it will drop even further, which would be...ahem...very uncomfortable. How can I eat healthy, but raise my bloodpressure rather than lowering it?
Since I started my raw diet just a few days ago after being a lacto-ovo vegetarian for six years (not 100% yet, but it will be once I've used up all my stocks of cooked food) the appearance of this article is an odd synchronicity for me (after two years of reading the blog on-off, I've only just started to believe in those). It's also weird because I was reading another "you know you're a raw foodist when..." just yesterday.
The bit about … you meet a breatharian and have to ask, “But where you do get your protein?” tops the list for sure. :D
nothing compared to raising animals for years just for a few meals and how much animals "ahem" add to the whole global warming thing, oh yeah i wonder how the animals take their gains. just saying if everyone was vege we would havent worry about global warming or world hunger.
But it wasn't so funny then... :(
"… the grocery checker has to look up the codes for half of your items; the other half she must ask you to identify."
thats so funny and so true!
