2 Years After Raw Food Rehab Started . . .

I’m baaaaack!


I was in the original group of guinea piglets with Susan, Jodi, Robin and many others who are still around here!  I lost 17 pounds or so, without dieting or going hungry, with an 80% or so raw food way of eating.  (I don’t care for the word “diet” -- sounds like Atkins or something….lol)  (I’m “OceanGoddess” in the Raw Food Cleanse book! :))


Well, there was just one problem with high-raw for me:  I got violently ill around weeks 4-5.  I had to…

Day 24

My great accomplishment today was running.  I have always wanted to be a runner, but my body would not allow it.  I would attempt running and after a few minutes my shins would begin aching.  If I pushed on through the run, the next day it would be hard to walk.  I've been doing a lot of hiking and the elliptical, so today I tried the couch to 5k again.  I ran longer than the program suggested and did it with ease.  Well I… Continue

Inspiring Raw

Today i did a Raw Living Foods class with a mother and daughter who just wanted to be reinspired to eat more raw living foods and reminded that by changing their daily rituals they can easily begin to incorporate more raw living foods into their daily diet. Changing your daily rituals is the key to making any new lifestyle work for you. you need to plan ahead and be prepared all the time. you need to know exactly what you plan on eating all day so that you can prepare it that morning or the…

Hitting Raw Results Running!

Picture this:  the Road Runner cartoons where the coyote's legs are spinning as fast as he can get them to go then he hits the pavement running.  That is how I am feeling this week.  


Something clicked for me.  I am ashamed to say that for the past two months I have been on a SAD binge, eating very few fruits and vegetables or green…

So I have my dehydrator out, I'm gonna make some Yam chips, My organic lady brought some last week and we don't eat a lot of them but they'll make good yam chips for if I get cravings, I used to be a girl guide, "Be Prepared"

Watermelon explosions

Let this be a warning...when blending always, always make sure the cover it tightened securely to the blender :)

This morning while blending up a watermelon in my vitamix, I pushed down the tamper and it exploded like Mt. Vesuvius! On the positive side my counters got the deep cleaning they deserved.…

Blog BLAST from the Past!

With all the excitement generated because of everyone camping out at the Vault and Weight Room doors, I pulled up a blog post from the past that I was reminded of today.  It is similar to when we first opened the doors of Raw Food Rehab!  It reminds me of Black Friday when everyone is waiting in line to…

Backpacking in the Raw

One of my passions is spending time in the outdoors.  This year has been a great year so far.  I have been enjoying snowshoeing, backpacking and canyoneering trips with a great group of adventurers.  I notice that my packing list is getting carved into perfection by my experiences of leaving the civilized world for remote areas. 

I’ve embraced the challenge of backpacking in the raw (diet, of course).  How can I go from my fruits and vegetables diet, especially high in fresh greens,…

New beginnings, not quite...

I've been a part of raw food rehab for a long time.  I've been in a out of the raw food network.  I've "participated" in two initiatives before and I'm now about to participate in the one starting tomorrow.  What I've realized so far is that throughout all of the hard and frustrating decisions to eat or not to eat "that (SAD)" food, to drink or not to drink "that (SAD)" drink, it's always been a decision.  I unfortunately chose the SAD route more times than not.  As I celebrate my birthday…

Raw Results: My Goals!

Hi guys!

I thought it'd be a neat idea to share our Raw Results goals (& means!) with each other, now that the initiative is just around the corner. I already gave my kitchen a fabulous make-over yesterday (moved out the microwave, moved in the dehydrator!) and am all ready. How about you?


Raw Results Initiative July 1st – September 15th


My Goals

  • Clear, smooth skin, rosy…

Phone mast

One of my neighbours has just put a note through my door telling me that a phone company is planning to put a mast up on the field by our houses. They have already obtained planning consent (there was only one planning notification put on a lampost on a part of the road that not many people pass!

We have an elderly-persons home and a home for disabled children here - both groups really vulnerable to the effects of radiation, I imagine - not to mention the rest of us.

First Night in the 'Hab...

Hello Everyone,

This morning is my first morning at Raw Food Rehab after a very enjoyable overnight stay. I hung out with the guys in the Man Cave and just generally explored the mansion. This place is great!

So, here's a little about me. I first encountered raw foods earlier this month after coming across the liferegenerator's channel on Youtube. There was just something infectious about his energy and enthusiasm!

Anyway, I have always had a weight problem… Continue

68 Days In - I Ate My First Solid Meal Tonight

Eight days after ending my 60 Day juicefeast I had my first solid meal. I had 4 romaine leaves, an avocado and some raw salsa. The salsa was store bought and had sugar in it. Gratitude in another lesson learned. I read the label but skipped right over that word "sugar" in looking to make sure there were no preservatives!  Ha! I didn't care for the sweetness in it. The avocado and romaine... heaven.

I later had a banana with a tablespoon or so of a paste made with raw cacao/cashew…
