I've recently re-connected back here on Raw Food Rehab and have read so many blogs and posts, positives, struggles, and I've come to the conclusion that it really is a journey of progression, wellness and enhanced health and kindness and love to ourselves and no judgement. 


No matter where we are on our life's journey, we should embrace everything without the need for beating ourselves up.


We will progress quicker.  Even if we eat an apple one second and cave…

Hi yes, I hoop (not an expert,  but getting  better all the time!) I like tortilla wraps too.

Hi Avril, thanks for commenting on my blog - when you say 'wraps' do you mean like wheat, tortilla wraps?  I have those sometimes - they are handy to fill with good stuff, Well done with the green juices.

Thanks Avril for all the comments on the food photos and my wall. So nice to meet you! See you in the 28 day reset?

Things are pretty mellow around here these days... It seems that so many of our friends spend more time on Facebook than at the Hab, which is understandable because it's just so easy. Our Facebook page there has taken off, with double the amount of friends/followers than here. 

I've been very focused on caring for my dad in this final stage of his life, and I know that I'll not regret this precious time. I do feel that there is a recreation that seems to be happening on the inside of me during this period of "down-time." It will be interesting to see what it all looks like once the dust settles. I do know that the food is important, but I feel drawn to addressing the larger picture of personal wholeness moving forward.

I just wanted you to know how much I've always appreciated you and your wonderful presence - even though we have never met.

Sending you much love & wishes for vibrant health!!
