"I just turned 60, can't believe it, time passes so quickly. Wish I had started on a healthy diet even 10 years ago. I have been trying to eat more and more raw, juices, no meat for about 3 years now. I did run into some…"
"I also just gave coffee. Instead of thinking about coffee I remind myself that I need something that will actually do my body some good. I start with Barley Max, a few minutes later I have Super Seed from Garden of Life. I follow…"
"I would like to hear what percentage raw you elderberries are as well as do you eat any fish at all?
There is so much information out there in the "healthy diet world" that I don't know who to listen to at times. I try for 85%…"
"I'm 59 and high raw most of the time. What usually hurts my perfect diet and causes me to give in and eat things I shouldn't is stress. I am usually thinking, during these times, that as soon as whatever it is that is going on…"
About Me: (at least a couple of sentences; ex: family, interests, hobbies, favorite quote, personal mission statement, etc
The most important thing to me is my family. I have been married to my husband for 40 years. I like to garden, take nature walks and enjoying the outdoors. I am presently about 80% raw. It has been a slow process over a period of about 4 years. At times it seemed as if I were taking 2 steps forward and 1 step back but when I look back I can see that I have come a long way since the beginning. I want to be a good influence in the area of eating as well as in every other area of my life. Who knows the way we eat may well make a big difference in the health of the people we love.
