The cow does not easily eat cabbage on vacation

Though I am continuing on my raw journey I haven't kept up with my blog.  I went out of town a couple of times in a 10 day period and even though I am still all about being raw it was sooo difficult and my enthusiasm seems to be waning. Iit frustrates me to go into a restaurant and special order a salad, vegetables only and have to give a full explanation of what vegetables are. I even had a manager come out with a book and ask if green beans sauteed in butter would be considered raw. … Continue

I lost my family’s cat….this is a good thing!

On June 4th, 2011 I went “Cold Turnip” and was overnight 95% raw.  I don’t know why or what triggered the dramatic change in lifestyle, but I LOVE IT! 


I was at my son and LDIL (Lovely Daughter In-Law) house when he asked me to pick up their cat. So with a grunt I managed to fill my arms with an 18 lb ball of soft orange mini Lion!  He said to me……………”Congratulations, you have lost our cat in weight plus 2 lbs!” 


Walking around for a few minutes…

What a waste...but not in pounds.....

Haven't blog for a long time and that is not good. I had a bad 4 weeks, really really tired, too much work and too long hours at work where I got distracted and ate too late, too early when I wasn't even hungry but that was the only window of time I had etc...... no time, no discipline I just blew everything with too much work, too tired.

But.....I am the perfect example of how you  can distroy you diet. It is not because I am too tired or I have too much work, eat too late and what…

Camp Life (and Diet)

First off, a belated thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes!


I haven't had much time online to blog, as I'm working at a summer camp all summer. I love camp, but the food is honestly killing me! I miss raw so much. I fantasize about actual fresh vegetables at mealtimes. One can only deal with pasta and cheese for so long.


I have come across a bit of a diet dilemma, however. I've finally given up on the "hot" meals, and am practically living off of salads…

New Raw Cafe Open! With Affordable Healthy Foods!

Hi!   I've been a RFR'er for quite a while now and wanted let fellow rehabbers that a new raw cafe is open!  We're in northern California (Sacramento area) and actually serve high raw (about 90% or more is raw --  salads, smoothies, ice cream and more but we also have a daily cooked soup and bread/wraps for sandwiches). The entire cafe is vegan.  The emphasis is on healthy, affordable, and fresh organic food.

You can find us by searching the web on the restaurant's…

Getting back to good...

It's been awhile since I posted. I don't know what exactly happened; other then life getting the best of me. But before this 11 week initiative started I decided to start a week before it actually started! I was revved up. That week went by fine --my commitment and dedication didn't waiver. Then one evening after work, without a single though I found myself ordering a bean burrito --ate it and it was downhill from there.  But I'm realizing that this doesnt need to be an all or none…

I was just listening to a talk by Brian Clements which was very interesting and informative and he said that the water of young coconuts was very hydrating etc  (which we know if we've been here long enough) BUT he said to keep away from the meat and the coconut  butter.....don't know why.

Now I'm very confused : (

Sad and Confused.

I haven't been blogging lately, because my life has been very stressful lately, especially at home.  My relationship with my husband has been shaky for the last few days.  It has to do with my 25 year old son who is living with us, his lack of ambition (he is working, but it is only part time) and whether our relationship can take the stress of being close to declaring bankruptsy.  My husband and I finally starting really talking since Wednesday night.  We have…

raw foods extravaganza at WF and in my life


The Whole Foods in Glastonbury, CT, held its raw foods extravaganza today. This is <1/2 mile from my house, so you can bet your bippy I was going! I'm mostly juice feasting, but gave myself permission to enjoy the yummy samples at this event. I had a big green juice before going, so I wouldn't be…

Fruit Leathers?

Believe it or not, I have never made fruit leathers but was thinking this would be good for our trip. Anyone have any combos they recommend? Do you just blend like a smoothie and pour onto teflex sheet? How long do you dehydrate for? Do you need to roll in parchment paper?

Would love any help with this. Thank you!

riding the vortex, up and up!

I can't believe a month has gone by since my last blog post here, but after a year and a half of raw goodness, I guess I've graduated to LIVING it more than reading/writing about it. It just keeps getting better and better. Some pics and snippets from the past week:



At Gathering of the Vibes music festival with Renee OrJustRen. We met through…

These words all have something in common. What do they mean to you?










How can you change your lifestyle if you don’t change your lifestyle?  I personally am finally taking responsibility for the food choices I put in my body.  Some days are easier than others but if I am prepared with a list of ingredients and dishes I want to make then things tend to go smoothly.


I am finding it so much fun to experiment and try…
