Just more on how I'm fixing my diet/improvements... :) and Today's (rather extensive) Food Log.

I am actually eating just plain banana ice-cream this morning, no spirulina or chlorella or cinnamon or anything added except water.  How odd, nothing needed to be improved taste or consistency wise!!  This ice-cream was made from bananas whose peels were practically black!  I don't think I'll ever wait that long again but at least I know they can make a suitable banana ice-cream if nothing else :)  It's been hit or miss with this batch though--I guess this morning I picked all the yummy…

The light is strong!

I thought that I'd come on quickly to let you all know that I'm feeling great and have been eating very high raw (98% and upwards) for 8 full days now! My energy is soaring, I'm feeling great and I've lost 9 lbs so far!

My greatest lesson this time around thus far:

I was letting a fear of the unknown, a fear of judgement, a fear of success, a fear of failure and other fears hold me back from bein...g…

Juice/Smoothie Fast Question!

Hello to everyone,


I have did one day Juice fasting included with one smoothie a day, feeling great and full of energy!


I have been drinking green tea in between and I was thinking if this ok on the juice feast? I would appriciate if anyone reply with your thoughts on this.


If it is not something in practice, should I replace green tea by water with lemon? Its just freezing here, and something warm is required :))))

How I got here and how I'm going somewhere else

My last blog was all about my tobacco addiction - I decided to use the massive response I got here on RFR to try to quit again. Using all that positive, supportive energy that way rather than just letting it slip away and just be me complaining online and people trying to help and me not listening. So I didn't buy and new cigarettes after I wrote that last blog. I finished the pack that I had. I have had a few cigarettes since though - I bummed 3 or 4 off people in the street. But it's been…

Journal :)

Had an amazing time out with my boyfriend day before yesterday night. :)  His friends are SO adorable, they remind me of the Lost Boys from Peter Pan :P  Even the way they fall always falls asleep at the foot of the bed and the other one falls asleep at the front and they lie on top of all the blankets.  HEE. :)  My boyfriend drank too much and got sick and fell asleep before every one else, so I got interviewed.  How many people have you been with before him?  10?  5?  More…

Raw Food Nutrition

Anti-aging really depends on how well your body is able to heal itself throughout your life. You are only as young as your body heals. Its not time that ages you, but rather a lack of true nourishment on all levels; Mind, Body and Soul.

An update.  I was part of the Raw Balance Initiative, which I loved.   For a number of years before that I was eating a big salad everyday along with green juices and smoothies.  Anyway I went overseas to visit my daughter and her family during the initiative and missed about a month of it.  So I got back Dec. 16th and Dec 25th I started coughing.   I ended up on Codeine and an inhaler.  Also a pain reliever because I kept pulling muscles in my back due to excessive coughing.  My whole…

Can you believe...

... just a few days before my vacation I catch a cold.  A serious cold and I'm miserable.  Today I made a cold & flu shot.  Juice of one lemon, 1-inch piece fresh ginger, and a pinch of ground pepper.  

The lemon has a high concentrate of vitamin C, ginger helps build the immune system, and the pepper adds quite a kick and helped clear my nose.

Instead of the lemon juice I quartered a whole Meyer lemon.  Interesting!  We'll see how this helps. I do not want to be sick over…

Such Is Life :-)

Made a gigantic batch of the crimson juice yesterday!!!!  I had one glass yesterday and now I am drinking one this morning and I have SO much left!! It's wonderful to have such an abundance of the thing that I need!!!  It contains 2 heads of kale, 1 huge beet, 1/2 a head of dill, 1 small purple onion, and at least 15 carrots.  It really isn't the best tasting green juice I've ever had, but it certainly isn't bad either.  I'm just so happy to have it!!

I feel no different from…

Postcards From Heather

Dear Raw Food Rehab,

I have missed you!  Well, truth be told,I never left, but I have been lurking, not posting.  Not sure why not, except that I wasn't feeling it and it seemed to be a Herculean effort.  I am listening to my inner voice, not forcing anything.  Today I wanted to check in and say I love you.  So I did.

In case you wondered, I ended my 100 days Living on Liquids at 30 days.  I am satisfied with that.  All you-know-what was breaking loose around me and I…

Not completely Vegan yet,..but trying.

    The last five days have been focused on eating at least 50% Raw, which has been pretty easy. The cravings are the dificult part, most of the time I am not even sure what I am craving. All in all, been doing pretty good.This transition for me is not about torture, but about doing better every day. My cheats have been minimal amounts of eggs, cheese, chocolate and chips(salt and vinegar) and this is comfortable for me.I did notice that when I have these foods I like them less and less.…

Thoughts on High-Fat 100 Percent Raw and New Book, and Where I'm At Currently

So finally a book is being written about something many of us have known all along--the nutrition of some cooked foods is much healthier for you than some raw (in almost all incidents we're comparing something with the likes of steamed vegetables to of course a raw nut dessert or pate).  This has been obvious to me from the start, as ever since I weened myself off of nuts and seeds my health has improved dramatically.  Although I still experience arthritic flareups, I no longer experience…
