The weather has been really cold here, and so we have been at home a lot for the past several weeks.  I have found it nice to have the time to focus on food preparation.  I've finally gotten into doing some fermenting which I've been meaning to do forever.  I made a type of sauerkraut, and made some cashew yogurt this week. I have the idea to try fermenting things I don't like to eat raw - like sweet potatoes and green beans.  I've been dehydrating the nut pulp from making nutmilk, and then…See More

Maintaining the Self-Love

Recently I started dating someone I met in a class.  He has totally different eating habits and history than I do, but I'm learning that as long as there is acceptance and non-judgement of our differences (food being only one of them), then there is the emotional safety to bridge those differences.  I really appreciate how easy going he is, and how he is willing to flex for me at this point. One surprising thing for me is getting to see how far over on the spectrum of healthy eating I am now.…See More

"Thank you for your heartfelt sharing Amahla! While going through tough situations, it's not easy to be grateful but looking back...they are definitely life lessons. You're strength to do that gives me inspiration.  Thank you."

"I enjoyed reading your gratitude list, Amahla. Clearly, you have trained yourself to acquire wisdom from your life's challenges. You are blessed to be a mentor rather than a whiner. My kind of gal pal : )"

Being grateful for things that are hard

As I've posted before, I am list-obsessed.  Today I did a list with a friend that was about the benefits of difficult things we've experienced.  It was so good, I felt I needed to blog about it.  This is not exactly the same list that I did with my friend, but I just wanted to put down the pivotal benefits I have received from some of the big challenges I have faced in life.1. I am so grateful that I was very sick when I was young.  I had multiple chemical sensitivities, and they were at their…See More

3 years of raw & playing at being "not-myself"

Posted on July 7, 2013 at 4:58pm 9 Comments

I was just catching up on blog posts here and realizing that this month it will be 3 years since I went raw.  It's kind of cool.

Right now I would define myself as a raw vegetarian - I am raw but also eat raw eggs and raw cheese (not sure if I would drink raw milk if it were easily available and legal).  I started putting 2 raw quail eggs (they are very little!) in smoothies a few weeks ago after talking with the woman who sells grass-fed eggs at the farmer's market.  I didn't think I…
