    Thank you very much …
    Thank you very much. The way I look at it, every person is responsible for what they eat, and nothing I can say will convince someone that my diet is right for them. I only present it as an option because it has worked so well for me, I would feel selfish by not sharing with others. Whether they accept of reject it, I know I have done my part, and I know what works for e is not perfect for everyone. I don’t see the point of arguing with people about food. It’s a very personal issue.

    Finally, someone with different diet habits who actually can be civil. Thanks so much! That, of itself, helps me respect you more. 🙂

    I completely agree. …
    I completely agree. Regular cow milk is filled with hormones, antibiotics, toxins, puss, blood, etc. Plus, the cows are generally treated VERY badly, and the babies that should be drinking the milk are chained up in crates for veal. In contrast, having your own organic, free range cow that is raised with love and not pumped full of garbage produces superior milk (especially when unpasteurized).I don’t consume animal products on principle, but for those who do, yours is the best way to do it. 🙂

    I have heard of a very extreme case of healing. I don’t remember who or where, but somewhere in the USA in the last 50 years, a doctor of natural medicine tried to heal arthritis, diabetes, and several undiagnosed diseases with large quantities of whole raw milk. After 6 weeks of only raw milk diet, many ailments were cured or much better. I really think that raw m,ilk is much better than processed. I am glad to have my own milk cow to serve the purpose! 🙂

    Don’t get me wrong, I like Bittman and have a couple of his books. BUT, he’s really sounding like a Michael Pollan wannabe. He even has the hair!

    Well thank you, but …
    Well thank you, but all those foods people mention that are bad for you I eat and I’m healthy. Lots of other people I know are to. Then again we exercise but yeah. Just remember the human body has adapted to these things and we can tolerate them a lot better than what most articles mention.

    That’s awesome! …
    That’s awesome! That cacao pudding sounds really good. It”s amazing how you can’t taste the avocado at all. To be 100% honest, I have never experienced so much joy from food as I do now. The flavors are so vibrant and real. Once in a while I crave some of the dull, savory foods of my past, like baked yams and curry, but I think those are cravings caused by emotions because they are comfort foods for me. I’m so glad you had a positive first raw food experience. 🙂

    I think those foods …
    I think those foods work well for some people, but not for me. The main thing is to be well-informed and to do what works best for you. After reading the China Study (among others), I chose to exclude all animal products from my diet. I am not lacking in any nutrient and I am very satisfied. Hopefully you opt for raw, organic dairy to reduce the levels of harmful ingredients found in conventionally grown. I wish you the best.

    well your right if …
    well your right if made the right way any food can be made delicious, and raw veggies are a lot healthier than cooked ones. But meat, dairy, and eggs are part of a well balanced diet as well. Not trying to insult your life style just saying its healthier to eat all food groups.

    I had my first ever …
    I had my first ever all raw meal just 2 days ago at my friend’s house, who I just mentioned in above comment. We had a salad, a pasta dish (raw veggies cut into noodle shapes), fruit salad, and a raw cacao pudding (avocado-based). It was all *so* delicious! I had no idea. The flavors and textures were varied and I was totally blown away by the tastes. I can see incorporating more raw foods into my diet, and less meat, like Bittman says.

    Some of the best …
    Some of the best raw food is very succulent and savory. I was amazing how much you can do with raw food. And the flavors! Anyone can make a salad, but raw food doesn’t stop at salads. Good stuff. 🙂
    But I still love a good cooked Thai curry now and then. There are raw versions, but the real thing always calls me back.

    Yes but you miss out on good succulent, savory tastes.

    Thank you for your …
    Thank you for your response. 🙂 I am so glad you are feeling better. After reading the China Study, I found no reason to continue my consumption of animal products. I feel much better now. I am very thankful for your channel and the information you are sharing. Every person is unique and beautiful and we all strive to find a diet that meets our unique needs. Information like your videos help bring people closer to meeting that goal.

    I’ve heard good things about that film, thrivesurvive. No, the film and book have no relation to each other. I believe you can see a trailer on their website, foodmatters[dot]tv

    I recently met a woman who changed her whole way of eating from some meat to total raw. She says she feels so much better than before. Personally, I am eating less and less meat. Especially after hearing and thinking about what Bittman says.

    The best way to …
    The best way to cook is NOT to cook. Raw food is the easiest, most healthy way to eat. Anyone can eat an apple or make a salad.
    After watching the film, “Food Matters”, my husband went 51% raw. The more raw food we eat, the better we look and feel.
    Is the book related to the film? It’s a great film.

    I’ m a scrambled egg girl. My typical breakfast is some form of scrambled eggs and toast. Nearly everyday. Yes, I am that boring. But I do“ dress it” depending on my mood. And my moods are varied……
