No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
I have really felt drawn back to Raw lately. I started back at the end of March.
I am trying to transition but wow I am having a hard time this time. Last Summer it seemed to easy. This year I am slamming so many nuts and seeds (I did manage to soak/sprout them) that I can't believe it and I just ate like a third of a jar of sesame tahini!
I think I need the calcium because my body is really craving that stuff. I ate a third jar yesterday too.. and seem to really be wanting…Continue

I am a stone heavier than I am in my profile picture and not so cheerful either!
I had kept a record of my health journey on facebook over the past few years - and re-visited my journey into raw foods.
I've been pondering why, how, I slid back into my old habits - back into wheat, caffeine, sugar, dairy in particular - and put back on that 14lbs layer of blubber!
I didn't manage to sustain the involvement in 'upgrade your eats' it was all too many log-in places to go…Continue
so simple so goood:) pineapple and coconut pulp - taste amazing :)…Continue
I have been raw for about three years now and I have to say that it has been one hecker of a challenge. I've lost a considerable amount of weight and gained some insight and wellness of how I think about things. I've created good habits and got rid of old habits. However, I have been hearing about these "natural" products that I have worked for losing weight. Garcinia Cambosia and Green Coffee Bean Extract. If these products are so great why don't we just eat the fruit…Continue
I am proposing a challenge to you. I am asking if you would join me in this fitness challenge.
What is the challenge?
Quite simply, the challenge is to do 100 pushups and 100 squats every single day for 30 days.
I have already started the fitness challenge. I am on day 10. This means that I have completed 900 pushups and 900 squats and now I have 2,100 of each to go. Wow! Only 20 more days to…Continue
I'm a newbee and on day 15 of my juicing. When I first started the juices were delicious!! I had very few cravings that only lasted a couple of days. I have been drinking plenty of water and 4 or 5 - 16 oz juices per day. I would actually wake up craving the green juice over the sweet fruit juice. I was never nauseated or had headaches or any other side effects of detox. I don't smoke, eat red meat, drink caffeine or alcohol so I think my detox has possibly been a bit…Continue
Today is day 1 and Ash Wednesday as well. I have been doing really well with my workouts and also my diet. However now I plan to step it up a bit on the diet and go low carb with no fruit, lots and lots of greens and a good protein source.
Love my plantfusion pea protein.
I am including eggs and fish though. I know some don't but for me it is best.
Definately eating high raw and feeling great!
I found a new place to live so my expenses will be much better. So…Continue
I was just having a thought this morning and thought that I would share with you what I was thinking.
I am finding, over many years now, ways to make life better. I first started looking into changing my diet and lifestyle back in 2009 and committed to only raw foods for several months. Then, life happens, as it always will, with the passing of…Continue
Spinach + goji berries banana + orange juice
My favorite Green Cocktail :)…
Not sure what day it is, I am not too concerned with it. I am working out consistently at the gym. I am planning on implementing a new eating plan this coming Monday though so I think it will call it my Do-over restart plan Phase three.
Works for me, then I don't have to figure out what day it is! Ha, ha, ha!

Can someone please share any information regarding who won in the various categories?
Feeling still new to this, it's helpful to hear the various names that people might mention in reply to this post.

Has anyone participated in the Cleanse America challenge? There is another one starting in a few days, but it seems it is only 4 days long. I'm thinking I want to do a smoothie, salad type cleanse. I have been having green smoothies daily since I joined this site and I want to take it a step farther. So far I haven't gone more than a few days without eating some sort of SAD food. I have Penny's Raw Food Cleanse. I don't know if I should just follow that or join Cleanse America.
After really dropping the fat from my diet the past couple weeks (it's been a process) I noticed a few things:
- Initially, a period of further detox. I thought I was done, but not quite. I would get these weird dizzy feelings in my brain just behind my eyes. They would last only for a second and after a about a week they went away. I also put on a few pounds. This seemed sudden and for no apparent reason so I chock it up to being…Continue
It's Valentines Day...the day some of my darkest fears about myself seem to come roaring back to life, even with all of the great changes and awarenesses I've made over the years. So today I continued what I think has been the theme of 2014...to do the things I want to do but fear going through with. In January I started running on the beach (don't get me started on why I was afraid to do that one) and tonight when my friend wasn't able to attend an event with me I went solo, followed up by…Continue
Had problems with my computer and so did not have access till recently. So I am really not sure what day I am even on. However, I have been going to the gym regularly. So Do well with that, eating on the other hand,, a bit out out of control, too many carbs like sweet potatoes, rice etc. I am planning on getting that back in toe this coming week. But at least I have my exercise going in the right direction.

Good Morning Everyone!!
I am daring to be BOLD. After a month long sabbatical, I am emerging as someone new. I am new because my focus has changed. And, now that my focus has changed, I have begun anew, and following a new path, making a new journey for myself.…Continue
