Tuesday Sep 30 | BY |

Here are two great questions that I received from the blog over the last few days…

First one is “Are rolled oats raw?”

And second, due the popularity of the spinach miso recipe, “Is miso only made with soy?”

In this episode I address them both AND talk about the event that is RAWking the raw world! 🙂

Take a look…

Your question of the day: Will you be “virtually” attending the Rawkathon?

Live Awesome!

Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

    You bet. I’ll be Rawkin’ That is soooooo cool. Great that you’re putting this together. Awesome dude.

    I actually went to school in Conway, MA. and visited and spoke with the owner of South River Miso. Great Miso. Great guy. The only place, I believe that still makes it by hand. I don’t even think they do that in Japan any more. Very rare if they do. I highly recommend the Dandelion Leek Miso. Hard to get. Very limited supply. But if you see it get some. But don’t take all of them. Leave some for others folks. Don’t worry. You’re generosity will come back to you many time over. See you at the Rawkaton!!! Wow!!!

    Question about the miso:
    Where’s the linky for the soy free miso company?

    Comment about the oats:
    You can get them raw from GlaserFarms in Miami. I prepare a bowl of rolled oats, dried fruits, cinnamon and few nuts with nut milk and put it in the refrigerator. In the morning the oats will be soft as if they were cooked and oh so yummy breakfast is ready for me

    This is so awesome! I read about the Rawkathon in at least 5 blogs this morning and it brought me back to this time last year when I first went raw. I remember being so completely enthusiastic and excited to learn everything I could and that was just when the Raw Summit was happening. So I had a flashback of spring weather, planting veges and listening to raw talks. (I’m in the southern hemisphere) Oh it’s gonna be good. I can’t hardly wait!

  4. Brandon says:

    Kevn, I will def. be “there” for the RawKathon as well as your shindig on Thursday. Can’t wait for either of those, as all of you are truly godsends!


  5. Brandon says:

    Shoot, missed the I in Kevin, so here it is….I.

  6. Mark says:

    Yes I’m going to attend!

  7. Jenn says:

    I will be attending as much as the Rawkathon as possible, looking forward to some great info and seeing what all your hard work has been able to pull together.

    As to the oats, it might not be raw but a good New England type winter breakfast for me is steel cut oats slowcooked in local apple cider and then topped with maple syrup and chunks of apple(all local but the oats). Cinnamon and cranberries optional 🙂

    Are there any oats that are considered raw? To make a raw granola perhaps, how would they be labelled in a store to tell the difference.


  8. Jan says:

    Wouldn’t miss it.

    Hey Kevin, As i live in Australia i can’t make it to the “RawKathon” but can’t wait to watch it on line!! Thanks for your efforts.

    Today you were talking about soy, and you mentioned that it effects the Thyroid; was wondering if you could send me more information on that and what else can effect it. Also what else will help Thyroid function.
    Cheers! Rebecca 🙂

  13. Marji says:

    Hi Kevin,
    I enjoy your show and will be at your RawKathon. I have a hard time with this type of eating I don’t know how to plan a meal and what goes together and that sort of thing. I have to do this for me because my husband is a die hard FRIED steak and potatoe and gravy man. I don’t like this sort of thing and don’t even like to cook it.But what is a person suppose to do. He thinks I crazy to eat my way. :~)
    to bad,

  31. Sandy says:

    Yes, I am signed up for the show.
    In regard to the rolled oats. I boil water, covered. Turn off the burner. Add the rolled oats. Cover and let sit 10 minutes. Stir a few times while it sits. Voila! Delicious! It does not have to ‘cook’ with the burner on. The remaining heat does it.
    Sandy T. Enjoy your videos. Thanks!

  37. Louise says:

    Just a short note to clarify a little about soy, fermented soy and the thyroid gland.
    Tempeh, miso and fermented bean cakes are prepared in this manner so that vegans can benefit from the high protein that fermented soy brings to the diet. Unfermented soy contains an enzyme which competes with TSH, but is otherwise destroyed during fermentation. Fermented soy is really the only way to eat soy.

    Hope this helps.

  39. Mark says:

    If you buy rolled oats in bulk , then is it already rancid and unfit for human consumption?

    I have signed up. I am really looking forward to it. I am still new to this raw food eating and need all the help I can get. I am hoping to glean a lot that can help me feel better and have energy. Then my husband will be interested too. Thanks.

  48. Ed says:

    Hi Kevin,

    From what you said about oats being higher in fat content than other grains, does that imply that the rolled form of other grains (or at least some) are not steamed? My local Co-Op sells organic rolled quinoa, barley, spelt, rye, kamut. Which of these might be raw in that form? No, I’m not going to be fanatical about it, but it would be nice to know.
