It is Ridiculous.....

Today's topic:

Call BS on something. What’s something that is just ridiculous?


I feel it is ridiculous to think that one cannot stay raw during the winter months. I mean, does food really warm you up?  I am assuming that since humans are warm blooded mammals we do not need warm food to keep us warm in the winter. If we did we would have to be eating the warm foods constantly to stay warm. Plus the fact that most of us live in homes that are comfortably heated during the cool winter months! Now if it is one's CHOICE not to remain fully raw that is one thing but if it is an excuse, that is the ridiculous part. Hint: Get a dehydrator and you can warm up your raw foods safely without destroying the enzymes. You also can safely warm raw soups on the stove. Use a food thermometer as you warm it and do not allow it to reach 112 degrees. Take off immediately and pour it out of the pan because the temp will continue to rise. Just my opinion.

How about a recipe. I said I would share my Cranberry Pear Salad Two Ways.
