Is vegan cookie dough safe to eat raw since there isn't any egg or dairy?

Hard to digest: Many people advocate eating "raw foods" as they believe it has more enzymes & nutrients, but some foods are difficult to digest when raw and wheat is one of them. Most vegan cookie dough has wheat. When was the last time you ate raw flour? The answer depends on your definition of "safe." it probably won't make you violently ill but I do not recommend it (except for maybe a tiny taste). ...Read more

Iam gluten free gaining weight why if i avoid all bread items i eat chicken beans beef along side salad no dressing rice or corn cereal fruits?

Gaining weight: That's great that you are not consuming a lot of carbs and are watching your diet. You also need to look at the overall quantity (and calories) of what you are eating as well. Are you exercising too? Without physical activity (cardio), it is hard to lose weight. You have to burn more calories than you are consuming.

Is it true that you shouldn't eat sugary foods( bread, jam, chocolate spread, honey...) for breakfast?

I m tryin to lose some xtra calories! i daily eat freash vegies cooked in chilli and soy sauce! are these sauce fattening?

Not directly, but...: The calories are extremely low - so in that way they're not fattening. Also veggies are not fattening. Even a bit of healthy oil (olive, canola) for cooking is fine. Other herbs & spices won't add calories either. But.... The sodium in soy sauce may cause water retention, etc so don't over-do that ingredient. Use a low sodium type or substitute / supplement with lemon or lime juice. Good for you! ...Read more

I have been craving protein ever other day.And only protein like eggs steak chicken animal by-products not peanuts.  Why?!

Your body's wisdom: I believe that the body has an innate sense of what will work best for it and what it needs. If you and your body are "craving" eggs, steak, and chicken (and not peanuts), i might consider "going with the flow" and giving your body what it wants (and avoiding what it doesn't). Now if your body is craving alcohol, cigarettes, sweets, etc., perhaps i would be more hesitant to go with the flow... ...Read more
