    I live in a rural mining town in WA. It's actually considered a city. There is a facebook page for locals who share homegrown veggies, free range eggs ect. At first it was a challenge but when I fly home (originally from Melbourne) I realize how much stress is present in the city. I love all these videos Jon! so inspiring!

      Hi Danielle,
      What a great idea to create a co-op of sorts to share homegrown goodies - wouldn't it be wonderful if every city and town did something similar! Not only are you able to get the best quality foods you are also helping to create a sense of community.

    i live in a rural college town and access and my budget is a problem, I can get preground flaxseeds but i know you say to freshly ground them, could I drink the alkaline liquids to counter the few negatives. also ive heard you be for and against flax seed oil and i can get that too. One more question, is there a point where you have excess and these things cause problems ie. omega 3 acids, protein, mixing a multi vitamin with extra suppliments like vitamin c and the probiotic

      Hi Eric,

      We spoke on the last ask jon call about these issues. Thanks for calling in. You usually can get chia seeds from almost anywhere online and I prefer chia seeds to flax seeds anyway. Have a few tablespoons a day and you shouldn't have a problem. I sometimes have over 100 grams of chia seeds in a day. You're body will start to tell you what it needs as you get healthier and healthier.

    We dehydrate meat to make jerkey, I never thought of it as more nutritionally sound before but it must be! Add cumin seeds and chilli etc to flavour, marinate overnight and dehydrate in small slices.

  4. Tina Young says:

    Hi Jon,
    I'm new to this and am finding it hard to get me head around, what is best with food and why, like dehydrating. What are the pros and cons?
    Thanks
    Tina

    For those of us who still like our meats - I am wondering if the oven at low temps. would work to dehydrate meats - would they go bad before they got to the dehydrated stage?

    Hi Wendy,
    My name is iris and I share the same problem as you. Eating at night and its usually almonds. During the day I can be very conscious eater, fruit veg organic juicing... At night I crave and it will be usually almonds. I recently started the GM visualization and slowly I feel my cravings at night lowering but I'm still struggling with it so I'm thinking to maybe add another evening visualization? What do you think Jon? Could that help night cravings?

    • Jon Gabriel says:

      Certainly doing visualization in the evenings would help tremendously. But drinking lots of water, making sure you're nourishing your body throughout the day work well too. Be patient though, cause it sounds like the night time cravings are going away on their own. That happens when your fat programs are turned off and it sounds like your turning them off.

  7. Wendy Breakell says:

    I am struggling with sleeping issues (basically very intermittent sleep, waking every two to three hours being very thirsty and then will grab a handful of almonds while I am downstairs getting a drink). I do not have sleep apnea. All day I can be great sticking to healthy eating, and I know I should not be eating at night. I am wondering if their are foods before I go to sleep that would better support these poor habits. Let me know. Wendy

    Hi Elizabeth,

    That's what they say, but I'm guessing the few extra degrees shouldn't be too bad. I would go for it. Let me know how they taste!

    I have a four oven AGA stove and the warming oven is usually around 50 to 60deg Celsius. I often dry fruits and tomatoes overnight. Is it imperative that it be no higher than 45 deg for flax crackers?

  10. Terry Coffey says:

    I've had a nice vegetable plot at my home for a number of years and always enjoy items in season. This year I'll be expanding it through a method called "straw bale gardening". If you have poor soil, want to grow organically with better water conservation, I strongly recommend taking a look at this website: http://www.strawbalegardens.com. It's also great for persons with limited mobility.

    I've also recently purchased 1/10 share of a grass fed dairy cow through a local, responsible dairy farm. This entitles me to organic, raw milk which I use to make my own kefir, yogurt, cheese, etc. This also helps the local farm family expand to provide sustainable, organic products for local co-ops. Check into similar situations in your area. It's worth it! I make a quart of yogurt at home for less than $1.

    God bless,

    Terry

    I live in Elkhart Indiana and feel very blessed to have access to many rural farms, farmer's markets, fruit farms, blueberry farms, and a local CSA (community supported agriculture) called Rise up Farms. We freeze blueberries when they are in season so we can enjoy them in the winter. A large handful of Kale or spinach in a blender with lots of frozen blueberries, some good juice antioxidant juice like Acai, some water, whey and probiotic powder make a great easy and quick breakfast for my family of 6.

  12. Jon Gabriel says:

    That's a great idea to buy a dehydrator used. I can't believe Aldi have dehydrators 🙂

  13. Marilyn Roossinck says:

    I see used dehydrators all the time in thrift stores in the US, usually for $10 or less. Just check the temperature settings and make sure they have a low setting around 100 F.

  14. in Australia you can get a dehydrator for about $100 from goodguys and sometimes Aldi have them too!!.. I LOVE my dehydrator and if you run it overnight you dont even notice it!..

    I live on a very limited budget and to be honest I live pretty RAW and in suburbia. We have veg in our garden. I have met people locally who also grow their own and we do shops!. I have recently started sprouting and its very interesting how easy they are using recycled pots and jars.

    You really dont have to be Rich to be Healthy and live RAW!

  15. Happiness is says:

    I live in a very rural area in the eastern U.S., and I find it's much more conducive to healthy and tasty eating than when I lived in the big city. I've found many great sources online to buy high quality products (happy to share if anyone is looking for where to buy).

    Also - don't be afraid to talk to the manager at your local market/grocery. I don't grow much on my own, but I've found I can put in orders at the market for whatever veggies I need/want, and they order them for me at no extra cost. This is especially nice in the winter when local growers aren't out and about.

    The advice about using the oven as a dehydrator is great - I did this before I purchased a dehydrator. I also found on a really sunny day I could put trays on a table in front of a sunny window, and they would mostly dehydrate (just don't leave them out too long - don't want anything to mold). I found this to be a great kick-start before putting them in the oven.
