Re: “Raw milk back on the table

Great news! I don't personally ever drink raw milk as I know exactly how to pasteurize milk at home, but I hate the taste of homogenized milk and haven't touched milk in decades. Or maybe they pasteurize at higher than the roughly 190 deg F that I use at home? Anyway, store milk is ruined for me and unless something like this passes, I will touch none of it.

I'd also like to be able to make my own butter and that's nearly impossible at this time since most cream sold has stabilizers that make it too difficult and annoying. This dumbing down of the marketplace is driven entirely by the desire to sell what they want you to buy, and not what you want. Fresh dairy is 100x better than the aged products in stores.

I look forward to being treated like someone with a brain by legislators in the future. I'd like to think that the current Republican swing in NC will help this along.. after all, aren't they the champions of non-regulation? Bu I fear that they may also be in league with the business interests who have been systematically removing choice from the marketplace for a long time now. We will see.

Re: “Long-awaited raw foods restaurant prepares to open

Really glad to see this happening in the Triangle! I've been uncooking since around 1992 when I spent several years visiting Optimum Health Institute in San Diego, once a year for 4 years. I went back around 1998, and each time, a different uncooking trainer was there to teach you how to make your own raw meals at home. I no longer attempt to eat all raw or all vegan, but raw restaurants and the raw foods movement are a beacon of good health and creativity no matter how you normally eat. I hope everyone tries this food and discovers how awesome salad can be. Youtube has some great videos for how to make raw food, even raw pad thai in several versions. Yum!
