Have finally got internet at home! So I am back!:-)

I have been eating high raw for sometime. Love my green smoothies! However per my Doc I began eating meat again to help balance my blood sugar. Found out that actually my back injury and the pain response to that could very well have been the problem with my irratic blood sugar swings. Apparently, when your body has the pain response to an injury it increases cortisol levels which make it harder to balance bloodsugar. So now that I have resolved alot of inflammation by drinking alklaline…

This amused me today...

I walked into town through the park today - spring has finally come to England, hurrah! Decided to take some pics to show you , it's so beautiful; blossom, daisies, (can you eat daisies, by-the-way? they look so edible!), birds singing. The swallows have arrived...

I am on and off raw and on and off...............geeze!

Ok...what gives?

Some days I am all about eating raw. I feel fabulous, I see my gut shrink, I feel good..I get results.

Then some days, I freakiing don't care. I eat meat, chew on some crackers and before you know my pretty gut of mine is swollen.

I have been reading all sorts of books and websites and from what I gather it's all about my attitude, talking thin, talking like a raw personal, tell myself who I am so I become...ok that's all easier…

Fellow Earth Sharers~Honoring them all<3

The day was sunny and bright, the land was circled with canopies, all ready to share their wares on Earth Day. A day of promise.

I stood beside the van, awaiting opening time, as I had long anticipated some lovely raw food. They are a cafe in our state but a long drive away. Today they brought the bus filled with goodies.

As it naturally happens, another woman was waiting for the goods. Not sure how, but almost instantly I was being asked to identify myself with a label. Drat I…

getting back on track

Hello raw foodians! Ok so I ha e been off the bandwagon for a while

But I'm getting back on it starting tomorrow with a 3 day cleanse. There's been a lot of emotional things going in with me and there's also been excuse making. I've gained a fee pounds and my mental clarity isn't so clear. I don't have a very big support system when it comes to going raw or eating healthy so I'm hoping spending a little more time on here getting to know everyone and about their journeys will help me along… Continue

One Month Follow Up

Well I can't believe it's been a month already since my heart attack. I'm doing fine. I went immediately low fat, not salt, no sugar and completely vegan and have stuck with it 100%. Actually Rich has too. I tell you what, that heart scare was a real motivator!

It's really not hard when you put your mind to it and I can now see that all the failed attempts in the past, were just that, attempts, and I can honestly say I left myself an open door out. And I took it, the easy way out.… Continue

Taking the plunge

I've been doing some reading and decided I'm going to eat raw foods!  I've spent some time reading the 80/10/10 but I don't think I'll be going that road as it is extremely spendy here in Sweden to eat that much fruit so will definitely have to incorporate other foods as well.  Yay food!  I get to EAT!  Now to fill out 2000 calories in a day :(

It's Been Awhile

I haven't signed on to RFR in a looooooong time!  I have had so much happen since the last time I was here!  I am almost done writing my book!  How exciting is that?!?! I have a title: 30 Days of A Raw Resolution, 3 sections: my story, my 30 days 100% raw, and recipes of what I ate at that time.  I am currently working on the recipe section.  I am also almost 5 months into school at The Institute of Integrative Nutrition to be a health coach.  I am excited about that as well and have learn…

Eating 100% raw is the ideal for me. I aspire to that idea.  But I have not manifested such an aspiration... and when I eat bread or meat or whatever I tend to feel guilty because I had set a goal for myself, and have 'let myself down' so to speak. I do eat a diet high in raw foods, but still eat junk as well.  I am just going to cut myself a break whenever and wherever  I am because you know what I am headed in that direction.  I ask God to remove toxic emotions from me so that I can live…

family therapy revelations, thoughts

It's a gorgeous sunny Spring day today. The slushy showers we kept getting on and off yesterday are in the past and today it's just all yellow and birds chirping!! I am ready for more days like this, but I'm still clinging a bit to winter because I've been hearing all of these dreadful things about an impending drought. >.< The beauty of today though is that we almost all have plumbing and hoses and we can still have beautiful, thirst-quenched gardens even in the mist of a bone dry… Continue

Happy Earth Day – Let’s Spread LOVE

I very much appreciate a day being set aside to celebrate and help heal the earth.  I know this earth day post is a couple of days late, but honestly, that works out perfectly for me.  You see, to me every, single day is earth day.  I am sure you have heard people (including me) say that about different days here and there but I promise you that I genuinely mean this!   :)


I really, truly do at…

New Raw Book

So I bought this book called Rawmazing by Powers... and the recipes look delicious! I am going to incorporate them into my diet.  Its filled with great looking pics of the food, so I am going to ask the family *which* recipe they are willing to try this week :) > um although I have been on a health food journey, up and down, for about a year and a half, my family has not really followed suit. They would benefit from being open to trying some raw food :) And I will feel much more supported…

Beautiful Man, not for me

So I had finally gotten up the guts to ask this beautiful man over for dinner.... it only took me 8 months! 

He said yes, but has been giving me random excuses whenever I pick a date.  I'm so dissapointed because of course the rejection sucks.  I know that people appreciate me for me, and that just because this beautiful man isn't for me doesn't mean that I'm any less of a person.... but tell it to my heart. 


With the full moon and partial lunar eclipse  approaching I…

Don't let life happen to you - go out there and happen to life!


It's not what happens to you that determines the outcome of your life. No! What determines the outcome of your life is what you choose to believe about what happens to you.…

Food today, and learning patience.

Just had a bowl of chopped apple, banana and blueberries for breakfast, sprinkled with cinnamon, a few walnuts and served with cold home-made almond milk. Yum. 

For lunch, I'll take a couple of small flasks of my standby smoothie (juiced pineapple, lime, greens, blended with avo) as I'm going to be out all day and running around.

Dinner tonight will be that lovely-looking Eastern Dragon Salad recipe that Penni posted.

I'm back on raw after a week of bad stuff. Why do I…
