Re: [Raw Food] can asparagus be eaten raw.
- Thanks, Margaret. I've been wondering about eating yams raw. They are my new favourite food! My husband is the real white potato lover in my household. I might as well talk to the wall as to talk to him about food nutrition, but at least he's talking about wanting to get away from meat. Never thought I'd see the day that would happen.

recommend grating them, then soaking them, and massaging them, to
remove the starch.
I have found that this works reasonably well, as I do not like the
taste of plain raw potatoes, and the soaked/starch-removed potatoes
are more palatable, but I still don't care for them-- could be a
sensitivity, I suppose.
Raw sweet potatoes, finely-grated, make a really nice addition to salads.
The best gets better. See why everyone is raving about the All-new Yahoo! Mail.
