Average Joe on the Raw

I just got through watching this video- wish I had done it a long time ago. It was just what I needed.  Not only was it encouraging but seeing his test results with his testosterone- the male hormone was shocking. I have been battling low progesterone for a few years now. I am using a natural P cream and it has helped greatly. Before I started using it religiously a few months ago I was crying every day, most of the day and I was growing a nice black chin hair that I had to pluck every…

Why are my past mistakes and wonderland of regrets still bothering me?

Hello, friends! I'm blessed by the best! How are you doing? As my Ivy Tech Community College Graduation nears, my past mistakes and bad memories are forcing me to look back and see all the things that I wish that I can take back. That includes all my mistakes, a wonderland of regrets. I feel ugly, useless, and worthless. I have been hollered at all my life, and I regret all of the things that I've done! I'm not even proud of any of them! I'm probably not happy with who I am because of my…

Farm Life in Costa Rica

I am thinking about going away for a month to heal at Farm of Life in Coasta Rica they are so cheap at $44 dollars a night they haveabundant fruit, sun and more.

I need to heal physically, emotionally, gain weight and get fit. It is more along the line of an 80/10/10 approach(ish)

I am going to heal for my digestion, stress, weight and…

cleansing from radiation in treatments

Hi Everyone,

I do not know if I have posted this in the right spot, but here goes. If anyone has knowledge of cleansing on a cellular level to remove radiation from steroidal injections in my neck and back I would be eternally grateful. One injection took almost 40 minutes, while the second one only took about 20. But, 20 plus 40 equals 60 minutes of radiation. I am scheduled for one more treatment...the doctors are talking about a round of 3 additional injections. I am…

Silliness and Things I'm Grateful For :)

So silly I feel about my last entry.  Sheer paranoia!!!!  I started my period as usual and I'm totally fine!  Oof!!  Silly, SILLY silly silly SILLY.  I can't even believe how emotional I can get sometimes.  I've always been like this--just a roller coaster, no matter what diet I've eaten, although I admit I've definitely noticed I achieve more emotional balance when I'm eating an abundance of greens, and it ain't the case right now!! :P  I'd like to make it a goal to eat at least 5 pounds of…

Chlorophill Overdose!

Symptoms of Chlorophill overdose:

 feeling lazy. 

 feeling spacey.

 are to passive.

 feel cold all the time.

I have just experienced Chlorophill over dose for the first time.  I did not even realize what was happening.  I could not keep warm it was like the energy was draining from my extremities all the time. I could not even get threw daily chores. I was passive about everything unwilling to fight to get up as I do every morning. (I have major…

Rough Weekend

Just a quick update on my journey.  The past few days were the end of our pay period (i.e. limited grocery money available) so my eating was less than perfectly raw.  I'd still say it was 90% raw, but there were some salads that contained chicken and an occasional mindless moment with sweet potato chips.  I am definitely NOT buying those anymore.  I also did not exercise daily.  

For the past 2 days I have been very low energy and I've noticed some constipation returning.  Seriously?…

Signs, Listening and The Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips

Today I went thrifting. I am a thrift store junkie!!! I found this book at Goodwill. I have never- ever found a book about the raw food diet at the thrift store.. I haven't even ever found any newer books on the vegan diet. I have found plenty of books written…

My Family's Journey to Raw. Episode 2

How did a husband, teen son, and 8-year-old son react to suddenly being served a whole foods, plant based diet because Mom "loved them too much to serve them unhealthy foods"?

They couldn't argue with the "Love" part, but they had some guidelines. "We will cooperate while we are at home, if you make the meals look and taste like the food we are used to."

The new transitional Vegan menu featured a plant based version of everything they were used to. Mom created plant based…

Transition Week Done - Juice Fast Begun

I had great success with my transition week into raw foods!  I never expected to lose as much weight as I did.  I have lost 8.4 pounds as of this morning.  It found it very easy to eat raw foods and I really loved everything I ate.  I kept it simple.  Nothing complicated. 

Changes: My blood…

Raw food newb- staple meals, satisfying hunger and energy needs for a fast paced work environment

Hello beautiful ones,

I'm Alyssa! This is my first time in the blog section here, some really great stuff :) I wanted to seek advice on how to really jump into eating higher amounts of raw in order to fulfill my hunger and energy needs while working at Starbucks (fast paced, pretty stressful and limited breaks to eat) any tips guys? In time, very soon, my career will transition to a line of work that suits my needs and passion but in the mean time I've found it challenging to eat raw…

Winery Tour

Tonight my best friend is FORCING ME to go with her to a wine club at a winery.  It is a beautiful place run by a family who homeschools and who does all the work themselves.  I am kind of excited.  She is going with her online boyfriend (* 5th date)   and I REALLY did not want to go but she told me to trust her and that I would have a good time.  

I can't really drink very much at all- 1/4 cup of wine gets me drunk!  So it will be a challenge to drink lots of water in between…

The Ultimatum

Hello raw food rehabbers!

Today, I was given an ultimatum by my husband... Lose 50 pounds or lose him. OUCH!!!

Now in his defense, I must honestly tell you (He is being very generous with just 50 pounds... I need to lose at least 70.)

My husband loves me dearly, and he has come to the end of his rope. I am a food addict. A normal sized portion of anything is not enough for me. I over eat my raw foods. I can be stuffed full, but if there is anymore…

I am still here...

Hello everyone.. It has been a long time. I have had a rough year and a half. I covet your prayers as I embark on getting back to the purpose God has placed me on this earth for..

We moved here to Carson City NV over a year ago and I didn't want to move here. I wanted to move closer to family and friends. I fell into a deep depression. My marriage was falling apart. I was miserable I totally gave up everything I believed in- including being raw and vegan. I gained back nearly all that…

Juice Feast Reboot Day 2

Last night was a bit tough.  My stomach was in full panic mode, jonesing for the cooked food very badly.  It took real effort not to have a bite of my son's chicken quesadilla, or make some toast.  Instead, I made a fruit smoothie.  Not quite juice, but definitely raw, and it got me through the night.  It was 2 mangoes, 2 oranges, some strawberries, some coconut meat from a young coconut, and a banana.  It was gooood.  And it got me through.

Today I got up, I was feeling tired and…
