First Try

I have a review class for a national test that is coming up next Saturday....

So I am up early and wanted to see how the first attempt at making some crackers out of juice pulp.  Well they are shaped like patties not crackers, except they are round like some crackers. They weren't dry! So the dehydrator is back…

My computer has been fixed after 3 weeks without one. I have started and am continuing my quest to free myself from paxil. I tried before but always failed. The side effects are awful.


Fortunately, I found a program on the internet called 'The Road Back'. They have been helping people for 13 years get free of various psyco-tropical drugs with great success. I ordered the supplements that are used with the plan and after 3 weeks I am down to 25 mgs from the…

About my RAW Journey (my Journey to Health) to date . . .

Well I am thankful to have found this website. I already have gotten a lot of inspiration from this website. My journey with RAW has not been easy. I have felt isolated and at times have thought WOE is me. I have thought about the foods I am leaving behind.

I am doing RAW to reverse arthritis. On my path to RAW I was bouncing around from RAW to JUNK food and picked up about 35 extra pounds. Not fun. I actually have been attending 12 step meetings (for food) for nearly 20 years and was…

Back to Rehab

Hi folks

Been away for a while now..lots happened. Moved house twice, had a car job..lost job..moved...found a job :)

So...its back to raw foods which i love....its winter approaching but you can have warm non boiled foods and no problems there..once i learnt that a few years back raw food wasnt a psychological problem as some people get a sort of blockage when winter comes and fear of heating food.

I visited the…

I've read "Power of the Subconcious Mind" plus had some coaching on the pictures that we see in our mind about our life! For reasons that come from childhood, I don't think I'm worthy of this life I want! I need to see myself they way I want to look and know that I am worth it, no matter what those old pictures look like or who put them there. I need to surround myself with those pictures by using visualization and repetitive speaking to myself.  "I am beautiful and healthy in my slim sleek…

First Attempt At Growing Wheat Grass!

Tonight, I put wheat berries , black oil sunflower and spotted peas to soak.  Tomorrow will be my first time growing my very own wheat grass. I'm so excited! I will have a hard time waiting for that wonderful sweet grass to mature for juicing.  I love when my apartment is full of sprouts!

New to Raw Foods

I am very new to raw foods. I read a little bit about it a few weeks ago and I am very new to this. I think this site is amazing! There is so much information and support here. Everyone seems so genuine in their efforts to help each other. I am so glad to be a part of this community!

Getting Back to Raw

Ok, I stopped making excuses and I actually bought some all natural juice (the best juice I could find with no ingredients except plant ingredients) to augment my home made juice.

I'm back to eating natures little known and often overlooked packaged food products; otherwise know as plain old fruits and vegetables! ;)

I have to admit, my brain at least is 100% clearer in just one day. Also my intestines feel squeaky clean for some odd reason. Hahaha.... It was…

Cronometer - cool nutritional facts

Just learned about a cool website that can be used directly online, or be downloaded as an app. It will be very helpful while I continue on my juicefeast that I started on September 26th (today is Day 20). In order to juice feast in a safe manner, it is important to get a good balance of nutrients, and CALORIES of…

My life begins now.

I have had a great deal of unbalances going on within my bodily system. In 2006 I was diagnosed with cancer in my thyroid, at the same time as I chose to divorce after almost 16 years of marriage.

My intuition guided me so strongly to NOT have surgery. Having great contact with the spiritual part of me and guidance - I also experienced lack in self-confidence and self-esteem. So I was really schooled when all this happened. Who do I listen to? Is it fear-based or is it my…

Post fast update

It's actually been tough to stay raw since the fast ended over a week ago. I'm still eating vegetarian, but raw is another story entirely.

The biggest issue is that at the same time I came off the fast was coincidentally the same time most of the fruit disappeared from the store shelves. Of course there is every kind of apple you could ever want or need, but I'm basically all "apple'ed out" at the moment.

I know it's an excuse, because I need to get back to…

Any food ideas for me coming off my 7 day juice fast ?

I am finishing my 7 day juice fast in the morning and was wondering what I should be eating.

I know to eat small amounts and chew slow. Basically have a piece of fruit and another juice.

Maybe a miso soup for dinner.

But can anyone tell me the best fruit and veges to have on the first 1 and 2 days. For example  orange or apple, cucumber etc.... 

How about a plain pumpkin soup? although not raw when could I have something…

An Ode to Summer Fruit.


Summer is winding down (or Fall is winding up depending how you look at it) and I can't help but feel a little sad. I love Summer and all the bounty that comes with it. Don't get me wrong Fall has some great things about it too but if you are a fruit lover, you can't help…

Flax crackers

I made flax crackers yesterday in the dehydrator. They turned out yummy. I can see all kinds of different ways to make a variety of them.

Today's thoughts

Positive thinking is great

it can help you survive the day

get you through tough times 

but in the end all your emotions

will catch up with you and any little thing 

can tip over the scale.

Once you harness positive thinking

it is important to connect those thoughts

with your emotions.

Because once you are really centered,

connected within, the nothing 

can knock you down.
