Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I am going on vacation with my family next week to LA to spend time on the beach and checking out schools as well as apartments out there to relocate hopefully this year.
I am hoping I can find some delicious Raw Food Restaurants out in LA - North Hollywood Valley or downtown LA.
Hope I can find someone that knows about raw food out there!
Can you please email me?
I want to do my research now because I…Continue
It has been a while since I was a regular here. A ton of things have changed in my life. For better and some for worse but I am still standing Looking at the few pictures I posted on my page reminded me of where I was and where I have come. Times were tough for a bit there but I pulled through. Food choices were dealt with the mood I was in. Sometimes bad sometimes great. Recently it has been towards the great. I have come a long way and learning to open up again and let people in. Also to…Continue

Yesterday I had a graduation party for my son. It was his party, not mine, so I served things that he and his friends eat. Let's just say it was not raw food. :) It included many things I used to binge on, including making non-raw desserts that required me to interact with them a LOT. But this is not a story about how I got tempted and ate my face off. I am here to say, I made it through the party and it was awesome and I STILL HAVE A FACE.
The real story here, and a…Continue
One week and 2 days has past on my cleanse. I only eat soup/juices/smoothies, that works best for me to avoid cravings I think so I will keep this up for a while before I start eating fruits and veggies as they are. The last 2 days were rough, I…Continue

Holla to my Habbies! Just checking in. I've been kind of busy! This happened:
That's my son Joe. I was so proud of him as they called his name time after time, acknowleging his grade point and his scholarships and awards that I forgot to be sad. The day was very much a rollercoaster of emotion,…Continue
Hey everybody, I 'm still hanging in there with the juicing ad eating fruits. . Today I had Beet, lemon, apple and celery juice. I really needed a break from the all green juice, which I drank last month. I have lost 28 pounds so far, This is day # 40. I got lost a little last week. After day 30, I decided to add more veggies to my menu, so I added avocados, which i made some guacamole, by adding tomatoes and onions. I ate this and , the next day I was in so much…Continue
I'm a believer in knowledge is power. There are some free online courses that I'm going to be taking through Coursera and I'm sharing them in case anyone else is interested in learning too. I love that they also cover all kinds of topics from engineering to art and music and that they are FREE. Coursera is an education company that partners with the top universities and organizations in the world to offer courses online for anyone to take. There are no strings attached and all you do is sign…Continue
Today is my first day of vacation..... let me say that I have not had a day off for a LONG time- it has been a year when almost everyday I have had some kind of responsibility..... working at preschool, practicing or playing music, babysitting my 3 year old granddaughter, taking care of my 17 year old son....... so I am officially taking the summer off. Last night I actually made plans with a friend to go swimming and go to an art class. I kept asking myself...... Don't I have something…Continue
Greetings! Day one of my raw food journey. I intend on blogging noticeable changes in mind, body and soul. :-) For the last two days I have had a warm up to my raw food journey. I noticed a couple of interesting things. For breakfast, lunch and snacks I had raw food and smoothes. For dinner I wanted to use up things I had in my fridge before I started 100% today. I warmed up left over organic roast vegies that I had in the fridge which consisted of parsnips, onions, butternut pumpkin…Continue

All I can say is that I'm so confused. But also in awe at the amazing machine we call our body.
I've been a RFR member since January 2010 - completed 4 of Penni's 11 week initiatives, lost 24 lbs and lowered my cholesterol 30 %. Stayed "high" raw for 3 years (80% raw 20% cooked). Avoided all animal products, ate green smoothies, salads with home made dressings, the good fats (avocados, nuts/seeds, olive oil, coconut oil) and lots of fruit (actually I got…Continue
I "started again" last Saturday. It was June 1st, a very good day to start stuff, I figured, and besides, I was MISERABLE. Beyond miserable. Looking at miserable in the rear-view mirror. Let me count the ways:
1. I was close to highest weight. (Highest ever: 406 lbs. May 31, 2013: 389 lbs and I felt everyone of them.)
2. I could not stand for more than 5 minutes at a time. As soon as I would stand up, my legs would ache, like I was weight lifting. Which I was, see…Continue
Let it fall to the ground
I know it hurts
It is a struggle to let it go
To lose what you care for so much
But there is no real loss
Just the illusion that what escapes is you
And you can never be gone
For you are eternal
Nothing has any power over you except you
But there is no control to be had really
To what is to be
And in this…Continue
Hello Friends, I am sharing this article from one of my favorite raw food authors on exposing the fruit myths. I too am shocked by all the controversy surrounding fruit, even in the raw food world, where let's face it, there is not that much to eat! LOL
Frederic Patenaude is one of my favorite raw food authors. He has recently written an excellent 3 part article on myths surround fruit. Enjoy! I applaud this because I have always seen fruit as one of nature's truly perfect…Continue
...Because it is all about making choices up in here. (But seriously, do NOT call me Sophie. I have enough freakin' names between my old pseudonym and my pretend-but-significant last name and ACK! Identity crisis! Let's not add to the maddness mkay?)
But choices, they are being chosen, muchly, you know?
For instance, do I start packing now (and leave my son who is still living in the house possibly lacking stuff he needs)? I think yes on this one. It is only for a few…Continue
I am so grateful for Penni's invitation to join the 3 Day Cleanse America Initiative.
I opted to go for an additional 2 days, turning it into a 5 day - juicing/smoothies/liquid only exploration.
Here are my reflections on the journey
Now who doesn't LOVE Les Brown!!!!!…Continue
