    Sailu, Thanks for these raw food recipes! Indian food is often oily and spicy, so these salad recipes make a welcome change for the palate. I think you’re inspiring more readers to follow the raw food diet once a week and that’s great.

    Hi,
    Thanks Sailu garu for posting whole day schedule along with salad recipe.
    Why triphala churna along with honey should be taken at night? Can you enlighten me please? what is the use of it?

    Basically triphala is a blend of equal parts of three dried and powdered herbal fruits – Amla (Emblica officinalis), Haritaki (Terminalia chebula), and Behara (Terminalia belerica). It is rich in anti-oxidants and works as a natural internal cleanser and laxative. You can read more about triphala.

    Dear Sailu:
    The whole day menu with RAW FOOD is good for health. In USA where I am at, it is hard to get CHURNA and some other food items which you have mentioned. For those who can get all the items on the menu readily available it would be wonderful, please enjoy those who can!

    Hy Sailu,
    This recipe looks fabulous..
    Sure i would like to try this.

    Great Post!!
    @pr117 I have a few thoughts…if you are in America there are a few places this may be available- try the Indian store, try Organic health stores, try American stores with herbal sections/organic sections. Sometimes if they don’t have this particular blend, they may be able to order it. I googled triphala churna and it was available online.

    Sailu- what is the different between triphala and triphala churna? Is there a difference? Triphala is quite common in US stores in my area, I live in a medium sized town. Banyan botanicals is a good source of Ayurvedic herbs online, I have also used their herbs. They have triphala.

    Sailu- are you living in India? I remember when I lived in Chennai- though it’s been almost 10 years, salads and raw foods were considered out of the ordinary and people shied from it- salads and even breads were eaten rarely if at all…. Breads only if people were sick. What do others think about raw diet? Of course your menu is almost 100% raw, chenna does need to be cooked/boiled before it’s eaten. I give you plenty of kudos for doing this! My ayurvedic doctor prescribed me a cleansing diet once, I had a hard time with it. I really missed my well cooked wonders! How do you feel after a day of this diet- emotionally, physically and mentally?

    Basically triphala is a blend of equal parts of three dried and powdered herbal fruits – Amla (Emblica officinalis), Haritaki (Terminalia chebula), and Behara (Terminalia belerica). Churna is nothing but a blend of herbal preparations consisting of one or more ingredients.

    Yes, Jen, I live in Vizag, AP, India. The India you have seen and known 10 year ago and the India now cannot be compared. Ayurveda and yoga are a way of life in many homes across the country. A lot of people do follow the raw food diet and are more conscious of what goes into their body.

    After my raw food diet, I feel light and rejuvenated. Since I have small meals through out the day, I do not feel hungry or crave for cooked food. Instead of feeling that you are denying yourself a cooked meal, tell yourself that you are actually repairing the damage done to your body the earlier week. 🙂 Its all in the mind, Jen.

    hello sailu gaaru….thanks again for ur valuable post on raw food. last monday, meeru post chesaaru kada, malli ee monday chestaaro ledo anukunnaanu andi but meeru readers ni gurthu pettukoni, malli inko good recipe post chesaaru. thank u soooo much sailu!! good n healthy food diet meeru maathrame follow kaakunda andarki chepthunnaru kada…that we all like most in u sailu!! And sailu few doubts…please clarify…
    1. meeru morning hrs lo coconut water teesukomani chepparu…even last monday also. is it compulsory…i know that it is good for our health…but we rarely get them. can we replace coconut water with buttermilk?
    2. And one more thing…. green tea e brand di vaadthaaru meeru. i see many brands in super market….and i am confused which one to buy. and sailu dol u add milk n sugar in green tea or just it is plain decoction?
    3. sailu…please tell me the use of taking triphala in the night. last week raw food diet lo triphala nu mention cheyaledu kada andi. is it necessary to take every time during raw food diet? THANKS SAILU IN ADVANCE. BYEE!!


    Sorry Rani, for the delay in my reply. Somehow overlooked your comment. 🙂

    We have a lot of coconut trees at home, hence I tend to drink a lot of tender coconut water. You can drink diluted buttermilk (prepared from skimmed milk), add few curry leaves and lemon juice.

    One of my relative is a wholesale dealer for tea, he sends me organically grown green tea leaves and I prepare plain tea without milk and sugar. I am not really sure of good green tea brands.

    Basically triphala is a blend of equal parts of three dried and powdered herbal fruits – Amla (Emblica officinalis), Haritaki (Terminalia chebula), and Behara (Terminalia belerica). It works as a good internal cleanser and detoxifies the body over a period of time when taken on regular basis. Nehal has it everyday and I take it once in a while. Its not necessary to take only when you have raw food diet. If its available, use it regularly.

  • rani

    hi sailu….i am waiting for ur answer….please clarify my doubts. thanks.

  • rani

    hello sailu gaaru….thank you so much.u have not only cleared my doubts but also explained everything in detail.u care so much for ur readers!! and sailu u also said that ur son is taking it regularly. now I came to know that triphala can also be given to kids. I will try to give it to my sons too.their age is 13yrs and 9 yrs. but i dont know about the dosage to be taken.thanks sailu and all the best.

    Rani, you can give a tsp of triphala churna mixed in a tbsp of honey before they go to bed at night. I have asked you to combine with honey since its quite unpalatable. It cleanses the system, works as a mild laxative and builds immunity too. I have been giving Nehal since 2 yrs.

  • pr117

    Thank you so much for your detailed reply. By reading other posts and going through the link you left for me I got a lot of information and another healthy tip for my children also. Thanks a ton for being such a wonderful person.

  • rani

    thank u very much sailu for ur valuable answer. building up body’s immunity to present generation children is very essential. sailu u gave a good idea….mixing triphala with honey. i feel very happy, that ….becos of asking questions ….even others too get benefited by ur valuable information. sailu ur really awesome. keep going great sailu…byee.

    Hi Sailu,

    Thanks a lot for all these wonderful recipes. I live in US and I just became aware of the Triphala Churna after seeing this post of yours. Can you please let me know what brand of Triphala Churna you are using? I am planning to give this churna for my family and I googled about its benefits and it really looks to have amazing benefits.

    Thanks
