June 15th deadline approaching fast....

Posted on June 4, 2013 at 3:13pm 3 Comments

On March 15, 2013 I made a promise to me.  I said, "You will give this raw food thing exactly 3 months."  I knew if I did something like this for 3 months, at the end of it I would make the decision to continue and make it a life's journey.  Well, I knew that after week 2....


So, now what am I going to do on June 15th?  Reward myself of course!  I will get a new hair style and quite possibly a bauble of some sort.  Since I don't do things like this often, it really will be a…

Really.  I truly am.

On Oct. 19th, 1999 I was informed I had pancreatic cancer.  You just can't get a worse health report than that.  I was told I had to have a 'whipple'...a WHAT???  All I could think of was Mr. Whipple on the Charmin commercial.  I learned very quickly what a whipple was.  On Jan. 14, 2000, I underwent one of the most radical surgeries a human can endure, the whipple.

In an 8 hr. surgery, they removed my spleen, pancreas, dueodenum, 50% of my…


My First Super Greens

Posted on May 21, 2013 at 6:47am 1 Comment

I recently dried, ground and stored a beautiful jar of what I now call, "Mary's Super Greens."  I must say I'm pretty proud.


The contents are dried dandelion greens, purple dead nettle, clover and some alfalfa greens.  I put a spoonful of it in my morning smoothie.  I am feeling so good that I now have my second batch drying.  This time I've added a bunch of organic spinach to the mix.

Now that I have embarked on this new raw lifestyle, I only regret not doing it…


My 1 month journey

Posted on May 19, 2013 at 1:51pm 2 Comments

My daughter, Jessie convinced me to sit down and watch a series of DVD's entitled "Free Food and Money"  with Gary Tibbo.  About ten minutes into it, I thought, "Seriously?  WEEDS?"  She is very persuasive and made me watch the entire 7 hr.'s. after which she gave me and her children a baggie and told us to go outside and collect what we learned to be 'edible' weeds.  I've never felt crazier or more compelled to do so.


We all came back in and started nibbling.  I realized…

Hi Mary, thanks for request. You are completely a miracle and what's more I was able to tell my friend about you who just had her gall bladder out yesterday. She has started on a juice and healthier diet a while back thru me being at RFR and has just signed up for Pauls 3 day cleanse -her idea. She gets out of hosp tomorrow -all went well .

Thanks for adding me as a friend, Mary. 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 prefer. 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 : )
