I enjoyed the video and your honesty. :) I've also enjoyed following Upgrade your Plate on FB the last couple months. I look forward to seeing the website in the future. I do spend most of my time on FB as well.
I'd really love to…"
About Me: (at least a couple of sentences; ex: family, interests, hobbies, favorite quote, personal mission statement, etc
SAHM of 4. In my past life I was a vegetarian for 6 yrs but not a very healthy one. The last 12 yrs I've eaten a typical SAD diet combined with emotional eating and 4 children which has added a extra 100 pds to my body. Over the last eight years I've tried going back to being a vegetarian. After reading the China Study a few years ago I tried going vegan as well. Obviously I have not always stayed with these ambitions.
Now to the point of why I'm here. I broke/fractured my ankle in four places (which resulted in surgery and my new robo ankle :/) 2 mos ago. Not being able to walk or do my normal Mom duties has given me a lot of time to reflect on how much I was taking disadvantage of my health. It has also given me time to reflect on how unhealthy and rundown I've been over the last 12 yrs of my life. I'm finally at a point where I want to make a major lifestyle change.
I've been pouring over raw food websites, blogs and videos for the last month trying to learn everything I can. I bought a juicer and have been juicing 2 times a day and have switched over to a vegetarian diet over the last month. My goal is to go vegan high raw. I would like to do a juice feast for 60 to 90 days starting in 2 wks.

Hello Aradria! Just saw your comment on my blog about raw food boot camp. That was actually from last year about this time. Ironically I am back at it again but not formally in the Raw Food Boot Camp online
