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…Continue

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…Continue
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.Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue

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
Hey everyone! I've been enjoying a creamy nectarine smoothie and blueberry dateorade quite regularly, especially with these fruits being in season I've been feasting on these smoothies!
I just thought that I would share them with you so you can also enjoy them yourself :)
75 g almonds
All the ingredients, mix together, the mass put at 18 cm cake tin and put in the fridge for a while.
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…Continue

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,…Continue
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…Continue
Well, here I am again. Blogging my food and feelings.
No breakfast except for my usual coffee with cream and raw honey.
Lunch: a delicious meal of 2 different kinds of salad (both low in carbs) and some chunked chicken.
Supper: So far since I don't want to cave and have the pizza that my husband has in the oven, I am having a huge green smoothie: almond milk, water, 1/2 lemon with some rind on, 1T MCT oil (coconut), 2T flax meal, large handful of spinach and large…Continue
Greetings from Country Dancer - one of my favorite rose bushes!
Bingo - perhaps it is coincidence, and perhaps I am right, that I've been juicing something that my body is reactive to. Because after just one day of cutting back to items that very few people ever have an issue with, I have dropped 3 1/2 pounds, after three weeks of very little change.
Starting weight: 214.5
