Good question... I dunno what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could answer your Medifast question..
It's so funny that you posted this today, R.P., as I was just started thinking about this last night!.
As the weather is beginning finally cool down here, I am also craving warm, heavy foods. Can anyone recommend some good raw recipes that are warm and satisfying for the fall and winter? I know that I'm going to need that to stay on track during the cooler weather..
I'd appreciate any additional ideas - R.P., your ideas about adding warming spices is a very good one. I'm also looking for ideas for soups and other more simple dehydrator recipes..
Thanks, in advance, everyone!.
Thank you for your post, it gave me some ideas of how we can adapt raw when the temperature goes down..
I tend to add garlic and more onions, but I am a garlic fan! over here in wales the weather is starting to get colder, alot of rain. I have recently moved and alot of people are saying the winters are really cold with lots of snow, so I will be trying lots of your ideas I think, especially as I want my hubby to stay raw over winter.
Best wishes and thank you for your lovely positive posts,.
Hi, it has been in the low 60's so it is coolish, when the sun comes out, it is warm, but not hot anymore, maybe 70, and it is getting into the low 50's at night, nice and chilly, perfect for a warm bowl of soup, or herbal tea, with ginger..
During the summer, I eat mostly fruits, with maybe a nut burger patty at night, with some onion bread, and lettuce tomato and onion, and maybe some salsa, or mustard, depends on whether I want a taco or a burger..
In the winter, I drink more herbal teas, and warming soups, and alot more spices, and actually I believe alot more food..
I eat hardly any nuts in the summer, and I've been eating alot of almond milkshakes and handfull of nuts, and nut milk soup bases, etc lately..
So, I can just see the natural progression..
I won't be surprised if my weight loss, halts altogether during the winter, as I beleive it is normal to gain some fat for warmth..
I can see a marked difference in my animals, so I believe that it would be natural for us as human animals, to also gain a layer of fat for the winter..
And although I don't wish to gain any fat, I may just stay the same as I am, or hopefully, release some, but whatever happens, I will continue to eat raw, and love the process, as it happens...
RP your post really got me thinking.. I tend to always go raw in the fall or winter months & I never seem to lose weight & have even gained in the past! I wonder if it is just a seasonal thing? I wonder what would happen if I stayed raw till summer or started raw in spring or summer? Interesting....
I've been thinking about Alissa's chili the past couple of days. It is getting coolish here at nights ... (50s and 40s)..
And apples ... craving them big time. It is apple season here - so have made apple pie and been drinking lemonade big time. The longer I'm raw, the more I notice my "cravings" coinciding with the local foods available...
Im still on my applesauce binge. went to the store today to buy food, came home a 2 bags of apples and mushrooms because the oranges, grapefruit, kiwi, etc. didnt even look appetizing to me..
I really wanted to buy yams and squash and pumpkin because they all looked so great..but I have no idea how to prep those into something yummy..
I love our bodies...
I slice yams and butternut thinly into rounds and top them with pate with chopped tomatoes on top and eat them like a finger food...
Oh that sounds divine.
Ill have to try that, most definitely.
Can you eat butternut squash like that? Just peel and eat? I'm still amazed at the foods I always considered you had to cook or at least "cook" in the dehydrator so they won't "hurt" your tummy. Sounds great anyway..
Yes you can eat squash just like that. I use it for finger Medifast food with guacamole as a dip etc....
