Diet Tips for Women Over 40 - Get Through The Aspects!

With the age 40, there are many aspects of a woman's life that change. Key among these changes is menopause and its symptoms that include weight gain, hot flashes, osteoporosis, digestion disorders and many other challenges. There are also related complications such as heart disease, and urinary incontinence among others that affect the health of a woman. Some of these symptoms are as a result of both menopause and ageing. Weight gain in particular influences such diseases like heart disease…

My First RAW Food Potluck in Studio City, California!

Hi Everyone!

I have been involved in this wonderful website since April 2010 and love it!  It helped me so much that I not only became 80% RAW, but I lost 30 pounds originally too.  Now that we live out here in beautiful Southern California, I can finally experience true healthy clean living!

I actually went to my very first RAW Food Potluck Meetup last Sunday and enjoyed it very much!  It was so much fun because most people brought in all kinds of delicious RAW…

Back again!

I haven't been back on raw in a long time, but I'm just sick of feeling exhausted, feeling puffy, aged. I'm ready for a change- some mental clarity- I have so many goals but feel like I get stuck mentally. I really mostly want to see changes in my skin, hair, nails and a clearer mental awareness and get rid of my extreme anxiety. I developed really bad anxiety over the past 3 years after going through my husband losing his job, both of us went through a long stretch of unemployment, our dog…

80-10-10 sites

I just re-read Penni's ground rules and didn't see anything forbidding posting links  -so here goes:  These are just some of the sites which I've found really encouraging and which have helped me make my decision to eat this way for as long as it works for me right after my long water fast.   Hope this helps you Sharon.…

interference of sugars and fats?

I found this very interesting and thought it might help someone else.  I tried to scan, copy and paste it and couldn't - don't know why, so I'll just type out the whole thing for you.

At the moment I am doing a water fast - as long as I can.  This should rid me of lots of accumulated fat in my system.   In the past I did one that lasted 10 days and another for a full 30 days.  I have Herbert Shelton's book on Fasting as well as Dr. Joel Fuhrman's on the same subject.  I intend to…

Just a quick visit.....

Kate - so sorry it took me so long to find the recipes for Dara's dressings and I am still not absolutely sure which, if either, it is.  I've been looking and looking.  Anyway, you can try these with any coleslaw veggies - you get to pick your own.

One of Dara’s dressings

1 bunch basil (25 to 30 leaves)

2 tangerines, peeled

1 lemon juiced

2 to 3 Tablespoons tahini

1½ Tablespoons olive oil

½ teaspoon garlic…

Day 3 of juice fast

Hmmmm ~ is there anyone here on this site? Doesn't seem like much activity.

Day 3 of my juice fast went really well. Yesterday I had some intense cravings but today all is well and my energy is better than yesterday. My tongue is coated so I am sure I am already into detox mode.

Day 2 of 60 day juice fast

Day 2 ~ I am a bit low on energy today but thankfully no head ache or flu like symptoms. Today I found myself cruising through the food room on this site. Thinking about what wonderful raw food I will be making when I am done. Until I am done with the fast I am going to limit myself to the liquid lounge. Looking at food is too tempting.

I have a question ~ Has the raw food movement come to a halt? I remember a couple of years ago all the boards were filled with raw fooders. It seems… Continue

August 19th day 1

Today is day 1 for me of my year long raw food journey. I am starting with a 60 day juice fast. I've joined a group over on Joe Cross's reboot site that is doing the 60 day juice fast as well. Today on day 1 I had a moment where I thought "I will eat today and start tomorrow" but thankfully I didn't do it ;0)

Quick Tip for Those of us who use a cheap juicer


    I found out that after juicing all your fruits/veggies.....if you take the pulp and put it back into the juicer a 2nd, 3rd or even fourth time you can still get alot of juice out of the pulp.........just juiced some apples, oranges and grapes and put the pulp thru three more times and got a full glass of invigorating juice out of it

                                                      Enjoy! :)

All is well here with me.  Yes, I had Open Heart Surgery on May 19 - grateful too.  It was discovered that I had a congenital heart defect, the arteries on the back my heart were never connected.   I am healing wonderfully, without the usual pain, and no swelling. 

I have been gone for awhile and will be around - life just gets in the way and you lose sight of some great things that have and great people.  I hope all is well.  If anyone is in Vermont, my daughter Meredith is in a play…

RAW Cashew Cheesecake with Strawberries

so relieved......

A video pushed me over the edge of indecision yesterday as to whether to do low carb or raw.  It was one of Dara's along with her sweet 86 year old father "Herbie.  He is visibly, strikingly changed by eating raw food.  He was a very handsome, distinguished  man to begin with - before Dara got him hooked on raw. His mental clarity has improved by leaps and bounds.  He looks very sharp, very healthy.  Any arthritis he had is gone.  I believe he said he can now walk 17 blocks (maybe it was 7,…

Juice Feast Day 32: Juicing at the Ball Park

Today, I had another new experience - juicng at the Ball Park. Some friends had invited us to go with them to watch our local minor league team, the Air Hogs, play. I left for the Ball Park with four quarts of juice, two green, and two carrot/pear/cinnamon. My friend thought smelling their hot dogs was going to be a major temptation for me; but since I very seldom eat something like a hot dog under any conditions, it was no problem at all. The mustard smelled good to me…
