Guilt

Posted on April 26, 2013 at 11:22am 8 Comments

Eating 100% raw is the ideal for me. I aspire to that idea.  But I have not manifested such an aspiration... and when I eat bread or meat or whatever I tend to feel guilty because I had set a goal for myself, and have 'let myself down' so to speak. I do eat a diet high in raw foods, but still eat junk as well.  I am just going to cut myself a break whenever and wherever  I am because you know what I am headed in that direction.  I ask God to remove toxic emotions from me so that I can live…

New Raw Book

Posted on April 25, 2013 at 11:05am 2 Comments

So I bought this book called Rawmazing by Powers... and the recipes look delicious! I am going to incorporate them into my diet.  Its filled with great looking pics of the food, so I am going to ask the family *which* recipe they are willing to try this week :) > um although I have been on a health food journey, up and down, for about a year and a half, my family has not really followed suit. They would benefit from being open to trying some raw food :) And I will feel much more supported…

Reflections

Posted on April 12, 2013 at 4:53am 2 Comments

Everywhere I look, I see myself. In my husband, in my children, in my friends, in my trials, in my joys,in my writing,  in my food.  All I need to understand is, what do I see?  Do I see harmony? or do I see discord? Do I see love, or do I see contempt? Do I see joy, or do I see depression? Do I see peace or do I see anger? Do I see compassion, or do I see resentment? Do I see charity or do I see judgement? Do I see humility, or do I see pride?

I want to see harmony. I want to see…

Negativity is so draining

Posted on April 11, 2013 at 11:56am 5 Comments

its true. when I am around negative people, I tend to feel drained, depressed, critical... guess what! that affects my food choices. SO! I am going to attempt to limit my interaction with draining negative people, and I am going to strive to keep my own spirit uplifted and fresh as well.

Hi! Christina, I have been away from rehab a while busy with work.  I have been frequenting Urth Juice bar on McCullough and Green restaurant to stay the course.

Thanks for the friend request, Christina. I've just been finding my way back to RFR after a little hiatus, so it was so very cool to be "rewarded" with a new friend :-)

Thanks for adding me as a friend, Christina. This is one of my favorite combinations for making a green smoothie. Blend: Two oranges, huge handful of baby spinach, liquid Stevia to taste for sweetness, ½ teaspoon vanilla if you like, almond milk for my liquid and flavor. If you don’t use Stevia, use what you enjoy. Add ice or serve over ice. Enjoy! It reminds me of the sugary Orange Julius my children would buy out at the Mall. Have a great day : )

hey christina, welcome!! i'm here anytime you want to talk. i've been on this journey for over 2 1/2 yrs now. i struggle everyday, and i've esp struggled to do high raw over the past year probably. my weight has climbed and i'm not too happy about that. just today i realized i have not expressed my GRATITUDE for my health for a long time. So today is the day....."I am gratiful for my health that keeps me alive!!" I do am on a journey to find a balance in all parts of my life and I too am a Christian!!
