    Raw vegan in Winter?! What are YOUR tips?!

    • Watch Dominion // 12th January 2019 at 4:59 pm // Reply

      Liliann Lizardslayer a person that eats that way hates animals. Animals are gods creation and you are paying to have them slaughtered.. god is weeping.

    • Asian Sweet Potatoes and Root Veggies cut them up into squares and let them sit in clean filtered room temp water then add Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Seasoning top it with Pink Salt. Its very tasty and Asian Sweet Potatoes have much more antioxidants than regular potatoes, but you Can use orange ones too.

    • FullyRawKristina I forgot to say strain the potatoes from water then add spices.

  2. Kristina you are a wonderful spirit. Love your accent too. I survived cancer twice and lost half my face to amputation.. a tumor destroyed my jaw and changed everything.. I was labeled a freak. I decided to start over, travel South America and start a youtube channel to inspire others who feel ugly and not good enough for this world.. it’s all about energy and mindset.. my scars will not define me. with optimism and positive projection you can overcome any mental or physical hurdle. self love from within overpowers any physical shell! go check me out and subscribe if you want to help me grow. i want to give people a spark of change and join me on my journey!

  3. Love the braid!

  4. I’m in Canada. Produce is quite high…celery $3.50/lb; peppers $1.50/1…cucumbers (non organic) $1.50/1. It’s expensive 🙁 And when lettuce is shipped from California in the winter…it tastes lousy. We do smoothies though because bananas are always great!

      I know right??? I live in a small town in Ontario and the produce is TERRIBLE 75% of the year. I’ve wasted so much money on really poor quality fruit & it makes me so sad… I just want to eat healthy but it’s so difficult. Plus i’m a college student so i’m not rich lol. I survive on bananas, potatoes & frozen fruit

      Most produce unless it’s in season in Canada is like eating cardboard.

      Ellen Lamb maybe you can grow some stuff of your own?? If you can it would always be way better than store bought!

    • I have a massive garden and two green houses that are operable from April to the end of September. Tons of fresh yummy greens, etc but from November to April snow is all we harvest. 🙂

      Rawfoodromance is in Edmonton I believe. She might have some tips! Check her out!

  5. Does the addition of cinnamon, ginger, or turmeric to your juices, smoothies l, and/or raw vegan salad dressings aid in increasing your body temperature. If so, would you recommend any of these options as a way to help satisfy our desire for warmer foods in the winter?

    • DvnmsLT omg yes definitely you are correct. I abuse warming foods during the winter especially with herbs and spices

  6. Your vibrancy, peace and vitality are infectious. Love your insights.

  7. Could you please do a decated video on teeth health; like what toothpaste and mouth wash is worth buying. I recently learned about glycerin in toothpaste and pyhtic acid effects on teeth.

  8. Kristina, you do look slimmer than in the past. But not in an unhealthy way. Do you mind sharing what you have done different since you have always been a raw vegan? Thank you 🙂

  9. Really important that you read this Kristina; You are not doing you body a favor by eating fully raw in the winters. And why are you talking by feeling guilty and stuff right after it? Guilty for eating nourishing cooked meals? I don’t understand how you can work with this and not even read through the ancient wisdoms of medicine food? You are not eating like your balanced ancestors who has programed you genes/DNA. You really should at least learn about Ayurveda by being this open figure. You are doing harm Kristina no matter what you perspective of seeing this is. I have a vata inbalance, and there are many of us that has who comes to you videos, it’s the most dangerous form of imbalance in the body as it disturbes the nervous system. So there are many here looking for that cure and it’s easy to get sold on your promises. If your body thriving with this you have pitta energies and you should be very mindful and being aware of why you are thriving on this diet and why it’s dangerous for some others. Eating non cooked foods chills down the body and makes it dryer. If you don’t have that natural oil and warmth it leads to dangerous chilling and dryness in the body. I have several reumatic autoimmune diseases and MS, we all know that foods that makes us feel good and balanced in the body afterwards, nothing easies my body as a cocked meal, and that is so also for anyone with digestive issues with the inbalance of vata (light energies). Instead of telling people in a mind control way to do what you think em to do, tell people to trust their own (and for you to trust) everyones ability to know that we can call intuitive eating. If I would eat like you do I would experience pain like you could not believe, but I don’t have a eating disorder (there or so many more forms of this than we probably can imagine, like needing to eat in a monotune manner/one form of eating) so I can watch your videos and ad it into a diverse full diet form but I can’t morally stand by this anymore by watching your videos. I really hope this makes you understand others diets better and do less of that wrongful judging.

    • Yes! I thought of the Ayurvedic perspective too. She seems very pitta, both her mind and body, AND she lives in Texas, which means there is no seriously cold weather. Which means it’s logical she thrives on raw foods all year long 🙂

    • I’m a pitta my Ayurvedic practitioner recommends soups and warming foods during the winter. She even recommends drinking ghee every night. I think we need more healthy fats during the cold winter months and cleansing, raw during the warm months.

      Naomi 415 no one needs to eat ghee

    • Her imbalance shows though as you can see from the premature aging on her face

    • +Watch Dominion You have no idea what other people need to eat through their own imbalances, only about yourself. I need to eat ghee and there is nothing that you can tell me that I can eat instead for the same benefits that I have not already tried.

  10. you look so BEAUTIFUL Kristina! Blue suits you 🙂 and the cute braid as well! I must say though, here in Québec it goes down to -45 CELSIUS. Extreme cold! I have tried being raw vegan during winter and it simply doesn’t work. When you look at Ayurvedic and TCM perspectives, it makes sense that it doesn’t work. I naturally eat lots of raw foods like fruits and salads in the summer or when I travel in more tropical climates, but in colder weather, I want lentil soups, sweet potatoes, roasted cauliflower… etc. 🙂

    • holisticmaya I like frozen vegan goodies when cold, since I feel like my body produces more heat to reach equilibrium… so raw veganism during winter might just work!

    • Horror Gardener // 12th January 2019 at 2:46 pm // Reply

      I’m in Winnipeg and I agree, I love eating raw most months, but after 2 hours of shoveling snow a hot soup is all my brain thinks about.

    • Elizabeth Jennifer // 12th January 2019 at 4:54 pm // Reply

      I’m in Quebec too 🙂

  11. Love the hair and no bracelets! So cute

  12. I live in Germany, what should we eat during this almost 8 months of cold weather? the only things that grow locally are cabbage and potatoes, literally nothing else. I find it absolutely reckless to recommend people to buy imported vegetables to continue eating raw. How is this any good for the planet??? Please be responsible with the information you put out there, be actually CONSEQUENT with what you preach!

    • Watch Dominion // 12th January 2019 at 4:47 pm // Reply

      Okay, well eat cabbage and potatoes and other plant based foods… use common sense

    • Jojo Bimeling // 12th January 2019 at 9:51 pm // Reply

      Hey 🙂 bin auch aus DE und beschäftige mich auch mit dem Thema…Bist du auf Facebook? Ich bin da Jojo Bimeling, wenn du Lust hast, schick mir doch eine PN 🙂 ich finde das auch ein spannendes Thema 🙂 LG 🙂

      +MawRaw Miller that’s true but in winter there is no local fruit except apples and pears if you’re lucky I think this was was V. Tanasi wanted to say…All the other fruit is imported, like oranges, kiwi, bananas (obviously 😉 ) etc. But we have great veggies 😉

  13. I really love your lifestyle and your attitude Kristina, but really I don’t think you should recommend to eat completely raw during winter. I live in Northern Italy and it’s freezing cold in winter. I still eat a lot of seasonal fruit and veggies, smoothies and salads, but I’m constantly craving warm comforting foods like soups, vegetable curries, pasta, risotto, baked potatos etc. I think the best advice you could give is simply LISTENING TO YOUR BODY and don’t deprive yourself of what you need. Forcing someone to eat completely raw when it’s -10°C it’s just not healthy. Also, what I get listening to what you’re saying is that cooked food is not healthy. All plant based whole foods are healthy, some are better to be eaten raw, some cooked like legumes, potatoes, rice and some kinds of veggies.
    As I’ve already said, I know you’re just spreading the message to keep eating healthy all year round with no excuses, but you should consider that what you do living in a warm country is not suitable for everyone! Lots of love ❤️

  14. I would really want to see you do a challenge where you instead of Bali go to a really cold country in winter and stay there fully raw for a month on a average woman’s budget and see if you can do it… and vlog along the way… since you claim it’s possible…. because you keep giving advice on how to do it, but i’m suspecting you have never even tried it yourself…
