I would be especially glad to receive any nut free recipes as my sons are both allergic to a variety of nuts and a lot of raw recipes feature nuts heavily. Many thanks!

Dear Polly,

I have been reading up on health issues for around 15 years now. There have been periods during this time that I have managed to maintian a healthy lifestyle…well enough of one to enable me to know how well it made me feel. The sticking is the part I find almost impossible! Its not that I have no drive..I have done a 3 week fast i.e. water only as a way to detox..this made me feel great. Also tried raw for a spell made me feel good but once again fell off the wagon. I have read so many books on this topic I really can talk the talk…PLEASE HELP ME TO WALK THE WALK!
PS I have the Vita Mix and a dehydrator for no problem with equipment either.


Claire December 28, 2010 at 2:07 pm

Hello Polly,
I’ve only just found you!
I’ve been trying to eat raw for a while now and I’m finding it very difficult as I have three big sons to feed as well as myself.
I’m going to try really hard this year….


polly December 28, 2010 at 4:50 pm

Hi Cath,
Trust me – you are not alone in falling off the wagon. It takes time to transition to eating all raw so I recommend introducing more raw into your diet again gradually as opposed to looking at what you can cut out. That “sense of deprivation” and the foods you “can’t have” leads you to feel restricted. Try to change just one or two meals per day/week (whatever you’re comfortable with) to raw and gradually as your diet becomes cleaner, you will begin to crave the raw foods/green juices etc and less of the bad foods. But even if you do have something “bad” or “cooked” then that’s okay – just decide how much is okay for you – that way you’re not “falling off the wagon” but choosing a “high-raw” diet instead. I’ll be posting lots more recipes to help you out too so you’re not alone!


alison December 28, 2010 at 5:49 pm

I am also glad to have found you – like lots of people I need a bit of help and inspiration – looks like it’s here! thanks! x


Andrea January 4, 2011 at 1:47 am

Thanks Polly, the recipes just arrived in my mailbox! (Guess I was a little impatient…) I am going to try the “Nutty for Bread” one right away!
PS. They ALL look delicious!


kathryn January 25, 2011 at 10:09 pm

Polly you are amazing !!! You’ve totally changed the way I eat and the way I think and feel about food and because of you I look and feel fabulous……Love you !!! xx


Colette April 26, 2011 at 10:52 pm

I have a severe allergy to wheat and other grains and corn (rice is okay for me).

Would the sprouted breads with wheat/rye etc you talk about me safe for me to eat?

If not any other bread suggestions.

Many thanks


polly April 27, 2011 at 9:29 am

Hi Colette

If you have a severe allergy then I would say probably not because according to the reports I have read, there IS still wheat in sprouted bread but it’s much easier to digest. Interestingly wheatgrass doesnt have wheat in it when it becomes grass so the good news is that you CAN drink that…bleurgh! (Tastes horrid but its SO good for you!)
I would suggest making your own “bread” if you have a dehydrator with flax or chia seed as the “filler” to bulk it out.

Hope that helps

Polly xx

Hi Lucy

Of course, I understand how can I help?


Rosalind July 19, 2011 at 7:09 pm

Having recently overcome breast cancer surgery – I am keen to eat correctly and understand the logic behind all that your site proclaims.
However, I simply “love” cheese. Can you please, please recommend a suitable “non dairy” substitute.
Milk I can substitute with rice milk which is quite acceptable. But more advise on the “non dairy” issue – would be appreciated.

thank you

Kate July 24, 2011 at 2:46 pm

Hi Polly, I read your article in Fabulous magazine this weekend…I’m am in awe of you!! I have been trying to eat differently following my diagnosise last year but I don’t always get it right. I’m a little bit afraid of the Raw diet due to all the preparation and lack of time (2 children, husband, dog, business to run). I eat mainly steamed fish, veg and brown rice but I am getting bored. i also take lots of supplements. I love the idea of juicing but I am not sure if these will replace a meal or if it is additional. Can you help? Sorry, I am new to this. Also I am on medication….Tamoxifen and Herceptin and whilst the supplements help with the side effects I woulld like to battle them nutrionally too?


polly July 25, 2011 at 9:47 am

Hi Kate,

Thanks so much! There’s no need to be afraid of a raw food diet. Besides you don’t have to go 100% but you would definitely benefit from introducing more raw into your diet, so instead of brown rice one evening, you could have some raw veggies or salad with your fish. By increasing the ratio of raw to cooked food, you lessen the energy your body has to use to digest food and therefore give your body more energy, boosting your immune system at the same time. Juicing is a fantastic way to get more nutrients into your body as an addition to your diet as opposed to instead of a meal. (It can be used as a wonderful way to detoxify – I have done 2 detoxes where we drank only fresh juices for 6 days ( What are the side-effects of the tamoxifen and Herceptin? xxx


Carolyn Wood November 25, 2011 at 9:11 am

Hi Polly,
I watched you on the wright stuff, you are so insperational.
I have alway been so positive all my live, but since having breast cancer last year, my body aces & because my mam died of breast cancer at 64 after it went in to her bones, she got breast cancer at 60 . I keep thinking my days are numbered.
So I am going to buy your book in the hope it will make my thinking positive again.
& I have never had advice on what to eat ? what you said about PH balance, it all made sence, your doing a fantastic job. Looking forward to reading your book. Thanks x


Tara November 30, 2011 at 6:34 pm

Dear Polly,

You are an incredible , beautiful and stunning women in every way! I am so pleased to have come across your website. Please could you inform me on the best juicer to purchase as I would like to juice daily, mainly vegetables with fruit- I thought it was best to buy a masticating juicer?
Many thanks hugs and blessings to you xxxx


polly November 30, 2011 at 7:17 pm

Hi Tara,
Thats soo sweet of you thank you!! If you’re into juicing and you want a durable machine then I recommend a masticating juicer – heres a post I did on it a while ago. The Oscar Vitalmax is a good machine but i also have a juiceproducer KT100
Hope that helps. xx


Lou Q December 7, 2011 at 3:27 pm

Hi Polly, I have been trying various different things with diets for the past ten years or so and know that now I just have no excuse not to eat really healthily as I feel so ill if I eat dairy/sugar/have caffeine/or wheat. So my diet is nearly there lol! But I feel really angry about it at the moment and like Cath, find it hard to stay on the waggon, even though now my diet is pretty much there.

I also do ascension and hope to join you on the mountain top next June :)

I feel kind of alone too as my friends and family have healthy diets, but not to the extreme measure that I am realising I need to.

And also, what to do when eating out, going to a friend’s house for food etc would be really helpful

I would like life coaching and recipes please

Thankyou for everything you do!


maria kushnirov December 12, 2011 at 6:10 pm

I would REALLY like your help with coming up with inspiring raw food recipes that are simple (ish) to make and that children will like!! I am also interested in superfoods but find that there are soooo many out there it’s difficult to know which ones to take, specially when on a budget. So, those are the main things for me. when i look for inspiration (which i need from time to time!) i come to your website so thanks!!


Christine January 6, 2012 at 4:14 pm

Dear Polly,

I believe there is a reason for everything and I came across you via a morning television show recently. At the time I was at a difficult time ( 2011 my cancer has returned and is incurable and is being managed) one of my recent issues which was getting me down was suffering from inflamation and even though I get the best care from my GP and oncology services there seemed nothing that could be done to alleviate this issue for me. Anyway like I said after listening to you talk I went straight to my laptop and looked up and ordered your journey of cancer. Since reading I have adapted my diet as best I can and the results within 3 weeks was amazing! I feel so much better both physically and emotionally. I know this change can really help me and reading your website many others too.
Polly you are amazing……..
Healing vibes to everyone


Paula Urquhart February 10, 2012 at 2:23 pm

Greetings from Canada, lovely to meet you Polly xx you are very inspiring to many… I am a cancer (uterine) survivor (age 35) now almost 44… cancer free :) with love & light always, Paula


Barbara February 11, 2012 at 6:43 am

Hi Polly, Thanks for sharing your informative blog! I am studying nutrition at present but with to focus on holistic nutrition. I am thinking of doing the course at The Institute of Integrative Nutrition as well. Would you highly recommend this course? Thanks, Barbara


polly February 11, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Hi Barbara

Yes I love IIN and have learnt so much and continue to do so. There is soooo much info and resources available to you that you can’t help but feel you really are having the best training on offer. IIN teaches you about all the different dietary theories and teaches you that each person is individual and their diet and lifestyle recommendations should reflect that which I really believe in.

There’s also a really amazing network of people around the world that are doing IIN that you can connect with as well as really helpful staff. The lectures get put on an ipod which is so handy – I listen to it while Im tidying up, in the sauna etc.

I did have a dilemma at first as to whether to do it as letting go of the money is always tricky! But now I have i am really glad I made the investment – it is well worth it. Hope that helps!
