No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
To sustain you through the hard times, you have to find your deep motivation--your Why. Your Why is probably not what you think it is. It is not usually related to appearance. Whatever it is, it needs to be vivid and we need to make it crystal clear and able to be summoned at the smallest need.Human beings like homeostasis--that is, we like things to…Continue
I have been LFRV low fat raw vegan now for a month and it is working so well for me! I was raw several years ago for about a year and half but got so confused about all the cheesecakes and the fancy desserts which used nuts. You see I would make them and then be the only one to eat them! That's a problem- The only thing my children really liked was the berry jumble with a nut and date crust. I made it for Thanksgiving and several people put it in the microwave and put ice cream on top.…Continue

Wanted to dash off a quick blog post to mark that I've been 80-85% raw for 5 years (not vegan though as I eat raw cheese, raw eggs, and occasionally cooked fish.)
I find that making an entire pitcher of nut mylk, then filtering through cheese cloth or a bag is too time consuming these days (I have a new baby at home!). What I do instead is add 1-2 tablespoons of nut or seed butter (I like sesame tahini these days) and 6-10 ounces of water to a blender and voila!
No need to filter or store, just use right then for cereal, smoothies or drink alone. It's easy to add sweetener of your choice if you like, and some vanilla or almond extract too for…Continue

Started a fully raw diet since Monday, May 4th along with my sister and father. So far so good! I actually went raw a little sooner than planned but if the other two were exited and ready to start so I just went with it. Super exited! The first two days were pretty good for me but yesterday on the other hand was not so good. I felt out of breath, achy all over, sensitivity to light and with pain in one of my eyes not sure if that's part of the detox process, allergies or something else.…Continue

Need help with keeping herbs like cilantro, basil, etc. fresh in the frig. I buy 2-3 bunches at a time but after 3 or 4 days they wilt. What can I do to keep them fresh a few days more or am I expecting to much?
I was recently told that I should chew my drinks instead of swallowing them but they could not explain why only that its better. Does anyone know what is the difference and is it better?
This is week three of juicing. I feel good and energized. Happy to be alive! I am blessed to count with my families love and support in transitioning to a healthier life style. They have been juicing along with me since the beginning and are now willing to eventually go fully raw. Isn't that awesome? So excited!! In time we will get there by taking BABY STEPS. So happy!!

I found out about this a few days ago and it is so great! It is that mason jars fit into the screw-on part of my blender! Apparently this works with many types of blenders (the cheaper kind!).
I have a $30 Oster blender with a glass container. And I have various sizes of mason jars. So this is how it is working for me and making life easier:
For green smoothies, I've been packing the 650 ml size with some frozen fruit plus sunflower sprouts and the supplements I use (eg…Continue

This is my fist time blogging, so please forgive me if I make a mistake. Last month my sister introduced me to a youtube video about juicing which lead me watch every juicing video I could find. So, I am currently juicing once a day in the mornings because that's all I can afford but not sure if that's enough or if there's something else I can do. Need help! Open to suggestions:)
I can't believe it has been over 2 years. So much has happened.
It has been a very rocky 4 plus years.. My husband an alcoholic got to be too much to deal with. I dealt with the stress by eating.. Gained back all the weight I had lost and then some. I am just over 300 lbs now. I had stayed at 275 for 3 years. Then in October I asked him to move out. It took until 2 months ago for him to finally leave. It was a hard winter. More stress than I have ever dealt with. I gained 28…Continue
Hello my lovelies! I'm vlogging this here raw food journey in order to stay accountable. Today was a big thing for me because I say how much I actually weigh, right now, out loud. I've been avoiding that by just saying, "I've released a little over 100 lbs..." Honestly, I want to see me be brave. May the truth set me free.
(PS I am sorry about almost flashing you! As soon as I saw the video I sewed up the front of my dress. Lol!)…Continue
Starting back on High Raw today. Not putting pressure on myself to be 100% at all. This is where I ALWAYS run into problems.
I've missed RFR and can't wait to get to know everyone that is new and to say HI to old friends.
