I got a bottle of aloe vera, been sipping on for over a month and then went for a trip - came back lost track of it in my refrigerator for a month and I can't make out the expiration date...can I still take it?

Show me the money...apologies - the raw foods restaurant
The first order of business that should rank high on your priorities early in your vegetarian career is to find and try all of the vegetarian restaurants in town. This list will come in handy when enjoying some social time with like minded vegetarians or to eat raw foods on the run or from work. Also these will be the kinds of restaurants where you can learn what kinds of raw food recipes to look for and what you will like in a vegetarian order.
Being a good raw foodist means being friendly
But you won't take all your raw food meals with other vegetarians. If you are like most of us, you share your life with friends, loved ones and coworkers who are not part of the vegetarian lifestyle. So learning to find good vegetarian alternatives in all of the restaurants is one of the skills you will become adept at the longer you remain a vegetarian which is hopefully for life. One trick is that if you have a vote in the kind of restaurant to choose, go Italian.
Cibo crudo ('raw food' in Italian)
Italian restaurants have pasta only menus, you can order an incredibly fresh salad and enjoy a fine dinner that is totally in step with your vegetarian raw foods diet rules. Any restaurant that already has a good selection of salads that are not set apart as vegetarian are a good choice because you can dine with your non-vegetarian friends and family members and not call attention to the differences between you and them. And since most restaurants have a good salad menu, that is always a fall back in any restaurant situation.
Lettuce Eat Raw!
A raw foods regimen is guided by avoiding milk, eggs, cheese or anything cooked in chicken or meat stock, you will have to kick your vigilance up a notch. The good news is that the vegetarian raw foods movement has become so large and wide spread that many restaurants want to accommodate their raw foods vegetarian customers. By letting your waiter know of your raw foods diet restrictions, he or she can guide you to the items on the menu that fit your requirements. It is not uncommon to see the manager or chef of the restaurant come to the table to help you make a satisfying raw foods diet choice. Restaurants are in the business of satisfying customers so they want to make sure you are happy with their menu offerings. And by enlisting the aid of your restaurant staff in a cooperative and friendly way, you send a positive message to your dining companions that you can live a vegetarian lifestyle and still be a happy member of the community in which you live.
Lettuce Eat Raw network...
Most of us have a short list of restaurants that we frequent often for satisfying raw foods meals on the go. But every restaurant you go to wants to be on that short list and make you a valued customer. So network with your vegetarian friends and do your homework up front to find out which restaurants do well at accommodating the lifestyle of their vegetarian raw foods customers. Then develop your strategy for handling any situation where you find yourself eating out so you can come out of that experience with a good raw foods meal that fits your lifestyle and not miss out on the great social times that we associate with the eating out experience.

Myrrh Try a tincture of myrrh to relieve the pain.
Sage Make a tea by adding two or three leaves to a cup of boiling water; steep; add one teaspoon of powdered ginger. Drink several cups a day until the sores are cleared up.
Tea Steep an ordinary tea bag (preferably Earl Grey) in boiling water for a few minutes; cool; then apply to lesions. Within four or five days the lesions should crust over and disappear.
Vaseline Vaseline will help ease cracking and dryness.
Yogurt Yogurt is high in lysine. Most commercial yogurts however have gelatin (may induce a cold sore outbreak) as a thickener, so make sure you read the label! Natural food stores carry gelatin-free yogurts I found this info on: http://www.health911.com/cold_sores
