  1. I would go for Rebel Kitchen Coconut Water or Chi Raw Coconut Water.
  2. Hi Jen, What do you mean by, "food quality"? There are lots of coconut water brands in the UK. I think you'll find them in most health food shops, or failing that certainly on Amazon.
  3. Well this is going to be interesting if nothing else. Sarma said on Instagram that she did interviews for this series and wants it to be helpful for others, which is why I'm posting it here. Unfortunate name for the series, I know that will annoy a lot of people, understandably. I still very much miss Pure Food & Wine. It was the most magical place where I had some great times. It was truly unique. The garden is the summer was something else. So many people feel the same. You only have to look at the comments about the place on her post (below). My thoughts (and gratitude) are also with the staff that made it what it was. https://www.instagram.com/p/CaBNhr9DYEk/ Bad Vegan will premiere on Netflix on 16th March.
  4. Hi Jeanie, There are definitely uses for some tins and baking pans in raw food. It depends what size they are. I suggest holding on to them for now. You never know what might become useful in the future and you might decide at some point you want to cook something again. One month is still quite a short amount of time, but I do understand the excitement 🙂 If you have somewhere you can store these items whilst you're not using them, you're able to give yourself time to see if you need them.
  5. My longterm raw food friend and colleague Karen Knowler posted this review of Matthew Kenney's restaurant in Selfridges, London. I must go check it out!

  6. It's a great question and well articulated. My suggestion is go to with your own experience here and try out different things to find the mix that works for your weight training, how you feel mentally and how you feel spiritually. Take the stories you've heard of other people's experiences and be interested by them, whilst also knowing we're all different and you'll have your own experience that almost certainly won't match up exactly with what you've heard. I do think protein supplementation is necessary for someone lifting weights to gain significant muscle. Not everyone will agree with that and that's OK. I've been around long enough to know people will claim you can get all the protein you need from fruit. That's not been my experience. I'm not referring to anyone specific, I've just seen it over and over. In several cases it's come to light the person was taking steroids. Again, I'm not naming names. I'm just making the point you never know what someone is actually doing, Vs what they put online. Luckily it's very easy to do vegan protein supplements. One in particular I like is Fortagen. It's a fermented mix of amino acids and unfortunately doesn't taste great. It does digest very easily though and will not cause bloating for most people. If you want something better tasting, you could give Raw Sport a go. If you're happy with what you eat now, from a workout perspective, bring in small changes for a few weeks at a time and see how it feels in your body. With some dedication to that you'll be able to find the right blend for you at any point in your life.
  7. Congratulations, Skye. What an amazing journey. You've done so well to overcome everything you have to be here to tell the story. Please feel free to post the link to your blog.
  8. Hey Margo, Give some consideration to becoming much more interested in what your body is telling you than looking for answers outside. I say this with love. You seem to have a predetermined idea of where to you want to be, in terms of the food you believe is ideal. But your body is telling you something different. What foods do you eat when you feel like you're, "giving in"?
  9. Hello! I'm very pleased to announce the new Community Forums here at The Raw Chef. Everything is completely free to view and participate. You will need to register (free) in the top right to post a new topic or join in a discussion. This forum is entirely separate from our Academy Forums. Those will remain a place to get support for our courses and livestreams. I'm very much looking to build a supportive and friendly place here. I also want this to be an incredibly useful community for newbies and veterans alike. That's why I've included spaces for community created recipes and restaurant reviews, along with spaces for culinary questions and a more general space for questions about the raw food lifestyle. You can use the same email if you're registered for both. Technically your passwords for both could be the same if you set them up as the same, but they are still two different logins. Of course, at the beginning of a forum like this it will take some time to build. So please do use it as much as you'd like; post new topics and answer other's questions if you have something valuable to share. Above all, please be respectful and supportive.
