Save the world with raw food, one "truly interested" person at a time.

We want to tell the world about the life-giving, colorful, beautiful, delicious fresh fruits and vegetables! Yes, they are worth the trouble to grow, buy organic, and prepare with love! Yes, our taste buds adjust quickly to enjoying fresh food! Yes, fresh produce can give you a healthier, tastier, longer, happier life!

We want everyone to know, so that they can share our joy, but not everyone is ready or interested. Speaking to a deaf ear or a hardened heart is not effective.  We…

candida: symptoms, struggles, daily diet

This is long! People asked me a lot of questions and trying to answer them. I ask in return that you not be judgmental or overly prescriptive.

Candida symptoms: what did you have? You go online you will find a lot of lists of symptoms of candida. The tricky thing is that I had some other health issues that can explain a lot of them already, like chronic fatigue and some other things I’d rather not go into detail about. I will say that for a very serious…

Pesticides, Herbacides, Insecticides. Insight from a Farm Girl..

I once had a conversation with a  boss and co-worker about the chemicals used on conventional produce.

We were talking about buying organically, when the other gals said that when they buy conventional they just wash the produce well. I laughed. You may wash off a teeny weeny bit but you aren't going to be doing yourself a big favor....

I grew up on a large farm with the whole works; lots of cows, a few horses, goats, pigs, dogs, cats, chickens. Our homestead…

Sugar Addiction and Omega-6's

Goodness me!

I learned a lot about my eating today.

I wasn't even that hungry...I just wanted something sweet, but not fruity...Had an orange first thing and a few sips of tea, and a big glass of water...Still unsatiated...And so I made little cakes in the microwave as I usually do, using whole wheat flour (not white) this time and stevia...well it simply was not doing it.  I had two and a ton of rice before, thinking maybe I needed to fill up.  I feel STUFFED and I…

Starting over with Raw Food Cleanse

I took today off of work to babysit some repairs at home.  A rarity for me to take the day off of work.  As I sit here and wait for the service people to arrive, I became frustrated with myself.  I cannot seem to stay on a regime long enough for real long term change.  So today I am starting at the beginning of my raw food journey.   " Raw Food Cleanse" By Penni Shelton.  If you haven't gotten this book, please do, it is one of the best step by step books for a Raw Food Cleanse available. …

Juice Feast: Day 6 & 7

Well I have officially been going at this for a week.  I have had some interesting things happen these past few days.  My eyes have been hurting and I have been tired.  Today I did forgo the juice feast and have something else.  My body said to do it so I did.  I think I just needed it.  I did consume only…

Dating Woes....

When browsing online dating profiles on okcupid and other sites, I think of how hard it is to really find a match in this world.....most people are looking for someone thats attractice and stable etc....and it tends to be fairly basic...but Im looking for much more, but Im a pretty diverse person. Im not a drinker and dont go to bars to *hang out* but I like to go dancing (and there arent many non-bar options for that on a regular basis) and I…

Help? Kidney Stones

I knew things would change as I turned the big 50 this year, however, Wow I was surprised to find out yesterday that I have not one but TWO kidney stones in both of my kidneys.  Anyone know what to take, what to eat to blast them away?  besides water?

Will I Succeed?

Why Will I succeed at my goals.....? Weight/Health/Financial/Spiritual...? Why? Because there are some who don't believe I can, and doubt in my innate Spiritual Power which has been gifted to me, that NOBODY can take away!  Its mine to use and mold as I see fit, and no person, no job, no situation, or anything will take that power away from me! I will NOT let it! I will succeed in spite of and BECAUSE OF it all, and I AM succeeding! I…

Birthday Thoughts

 I love you my friends! Thank you for giving me a great day, and for not judging me, or criticizing my lifestyle (vegan/queer/genderqueer/raw foodist/juice feaster) When ppl do get down on me even jokingly about those things, it just doest vibe so well, and Im so happy Im surrounded by people who dont do that to me! That makes me SOOO happy on soooo many levels! Im very grateful for all the weight Ive lost, and for the clarity of mind that Im receiving. Im grateful for where I live, and for…

The Energetic/Emotional Umbilical Cord

Well, it's that time. I'm going to be 22 in a few days (it's my birthday!:D) and I am feeling a really big shift around this one! 

After three years of on-a-whim travel I landed safely back in my hometown of Vancouver, with the intention of grounding, integrating and noticing everything…

In Hawaii at last

Haven't had much of an opportunity to check into the Hab while preparing to leave for Hawaii with my mom, and even for the first few days while here. We will be here until March 15th.

It is a pretty exhausting change for my mom, and quite an adjustment for me as well. Neither of us had any sleep the day…

Cancer the sequel: badder and harder

Hi folks -

Milly's breast cancer has metastasized to her eyes, brain, bones, liver, and lung.   She started having bone pain and headaches in January, a mere 2.5 months of finishing treatment.  We initially dismissed the symptoms as related to cycling injuries.  She had teeth problems due to knocking them loose in an accident in August '10.  And she had overuse injuries in her hip tendons.  Besides, it was much too soon after initial treatment for us to panic and believe it was a…

Just More On What I'm Eating/My Thoughts

Today I have been eating (and I aim to eat) supremely healthier.  My digestive tract seems to be working well because, although I'm bleeding still (ulcerative proctitis), I'm haven't been constipated in days and have been very regular! :)  I kept white grains to a minimum today (I use them to help push all the fiber I eat through), and ate some really lovely things.

Lots of oranges, really wonderful fresh ones (If I had ones like this around all the time, it'd be much easier for me to…
