tammay In answer to your question - try going to www.fitday.com and putting in your menu and seeing the total calories. Then add up the calories of all the raw items and divide that by the total calories and you should get a percentage of how much of your menu is raw.



I'm not math expert, but that's the way I've been doing it and it seems to work.



Hope that helps!

I haven't had good luck sprouting legumes - I stick to alfalfa, mustard, broccoli, buckwheat, etc.

specialK12 so all beans and legumes would not be raw, right?

froggythefrog The beans are cooked before they're pressed to make soymilk. The soymilk might also be kept hot when combined with the coagulant (either a calcium or magnesium salt).

Seb_0810 Just wondering, why is tofu not raw?
03-19-2007 11:12 PM
froggythefrog Things are your list that are not raw:



Tofu, yogurt, sprouted grain bread, all of dinner



Dried fruit most definitely can be raw. It depends on what temperature it was dehydrated at.

Seb_0810 These are the raw items in your diet:

-fruit and raw oats (not sure if yogurt is considred raw, it is probably made made from pasteurized milk so most likely not)

-all the snacks

-all of lunch (not sure if tofu is considred raw)

- the veggies are raw only if they do not exeed 46*C

- bread is not raw, raw mushrooms are raw, and not sure about yogurt

- not sure about sprouted bread, and dried fruit is only raw if it does not exeed 46*C
