No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
Hey all! Hope you are all having an amazing day! Today I am doing great! The sun is out for the first time in weeks and it feels great! I haven't been doing "super good" but I've been doing well. I have stopped stressing over all that I do wrong and I'm just enjoying eating more raw and more healthy. I tell you what, it's a HUGE difference. I've been so much happier the last week or so. I'm no longer stressing about my weight and I'm staying active. The hubs and I have agreed to work out…Continue
Here is the latest entry from my personal blog...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I I am now exactly 54 days into my brand new lifestyle. I hardly know where to begin in describing all the changes that have taken place in April and May. As we stand on the edge of entering June, I am kicking it off with a 10 day juice fast, or, as some people call it, a juice FEAST. And why not? You get to drink as much green juice as you need or…Continue
Motivation sky high! I don't know where it came from, but I'm happy it's back.
Hi all. Always looking for ways to celebrate raw foods (and stay raw) - I started a new blog called Girl Meets Juice (link disabled by Admin - see House Rules)
I am so freakin' angry today. It doesn't matter what the reason is. What matters is that it hurts....on a deep dark level there is pain. I needed this video more than I can say today. Maybe you do too....
One good thing (at least) came from this weekend…I got to spend time with family and checked off a few chores from the ole ‘to-do’ list.
We started out early Saturday to run errands, so I made a green smoothie & a green juice for the trip (I enjoyed the smoothie, but the juice was forgotten throughout the day…sigh).
The first stop was the hospital (routine checkup for my son) and was quick. The second was at the farmers’ market. Despite the spinach guy…Continue
And they're not just mine!
This past Saturday was opening day for our local Farmer's Market. It was so nice to see everyone again after our long, long winter! I spent a little time talking to Gilberte, the woman who runs a small organic farm just a bit up the coast. She told me she's working more with youth this year, in…Continue
To keep your leafy greens fresher longer in the fridge, try this! put a paper towel loosely over the container and lay the cover on top. Do not seal cover. The paper towel will absorb the excess moisture.
Determination gives you the resolve to keep going
IN SPITE OF the roadblocks that lay before you.
As I tend to do when I have things I enjoy, I decided to have the same as what I had yesterday. But to mix it up I decided to put all the ingredients of the most delicious juice I have ever had, into the Vita Mix and make a smoothie of it instead. It is amazing how it could taste so different. The juice seemed to taste more pure. Anyway, I had to add some Star Fruit to get rid of the bitterness and make it more palatable. Will stick to the juice with that recipe.
I had a really…Continue
Here we are into Week 9! I'm feeling really good about the fact that I've stuck with this for over 2 months now. I will take some updated progress picture this week, and take my measurements again. I feel my clothing getting looser, but the photos and the measurements seem to really drive it home for me.
One of the reasons I haven't been posting is that I haven't been feeling good physically or emotionally this week. I have fibromyalgia and am fairly certain that I have a great…Continue
I watched a show on tv about a woman who fed her kids some salad- it was triple washed- so she figured it was ok. I won't go into what happened to one of her daughters but it was not good and it took several years and hospitalizations to get over it.
So I just want to encourage everyone to really wash those greens before eating- use enough water to get them really really clean - even if they are already washed or if they are organic or whatever.
That is my…Continue
I just realize that my scale is not really working. I do everuthing on earth possible to get this initiative working and yes the weight doesn't really go down. This morning (after a juiced sunday) I weight more that I should've. So I weight myself like 1 minute fater an I was 2 kilos down, then 1 minute after 3 kilos up....I don't want to buy another one now....the kind of stuff I can buy is limited on the island where I live I'll have to go to a big city for that otherwise I'll get the same…Continue

All going to plan today. All raw and all liquid.
Thank you Donna, Mae and Penni for the well wishes and support. I will be drawing on this in my weak moments. Knowing that you are doing LOTS of liquids too Penni will make it easier.
Today I started with warm water with lemon juice and ginger.
Breakfast was my version of the Ani Phyo's Oaxaca Inspiration and that kept me going right through to the afternoon so I just drank water all day.
My inspiration for my…Continue
Allllllllright. I've had it!
I have been on a raw food lifestyle rollercoaster for about a year now. My motivation and commitment was sky high last summer when i joined the Revealing Your Inner Rawkstar initiative here at the hab. I was able to ride that train for about a week before i began to stumble. I've successfully committed to the raw food lifestyle in the past, but for the last two years have been using my pregnancy and now breastfeeding as an excuse as to why it's…Continue
