80% of the time I'm 100% raw everytime. :)


I've been on the down low for awhile and haven't been checking into this site as often as I did when I started back in January of this year. We've been busy with my daughter's senior year of high school and the college visiting and application process. What a job that is. Anybody got any thoughts on advising a 17 yr old on what to major in college? Because she doesn't know what she wants to do and her mother is out of ideas…

Things are changing........

I may be loosing my job at the health spa. My boss has found a woman who wants to be an intern- live out there and so most of her pay would be room and board and also the instruction time. I was really scared at first thinking about not having that extra income in addition to my retirement check. But I think the Lord is taking me in a new direction. Yesterday I was asked to be an accompanist at the High school for the Choir teacher- very small pay, really more like volunteer but it would be a… Continue

You CAN Shift Your Focus NOW!

FOCUS is controlled by questions...

Want better answers....

Ask better questions!

Anthony Robbins talks about questions,

and how important it is to ASK for what you want,

and even ASK yourself, what you're doing,

why you're doing it,

and what you're gonna do about…

Diabetes - 5 family members now have it !!!!!

There was a time when I only knew ONE person with diabetes and that was Grandpa - I use watch him give himself insulin shots when I was a kid (I couldn't believe he could do that !!) so I watched to give him my support with having to get a shot (I would want someone to hold me hand !! and being a kid I was "being strong for him") Anyway he has long since passed due to complication with his diabetes - he got a small cut on his toe that turned gangrenous and he passed one Christmas morning....NOW… Continue

Midnight Ramblings

On my vlogs, I mentioned how I was feeling sluggish and drained... well someone brought up the idea that maybe I wasn't getting enough calories.... ding ding ding...right answer...LOL... so now that I am taking in more calories, I am starting to feel ggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat! :)
Tonight I started craving the green smoothies, and fixed a big 'ol glass full, and am sipping on it at the moment. I have found that I like the savory flavor over the sweet. So I load the blender up with green…

No Turning Back!

I've realized something recently. It's that as much as I still crave the foods that are unhealthy, I can't go back to that diet. I know too much, I know that eating a raw diet is what is best for me. I feel blessed to have come across this because most people are so unaware. Sometimes I feel like I'm missing out, but then I realize that it's not me who is missing out, it's the people around me. I am so thankful for this knowledge and that there is a community like this. It may take a while to… Continue

Here's To New Beginnings

Monday is as good an excuse as any to declare a new beginning. Today being the Monday right after the Thanksgiving holiday break in the U.S., makes it that much more appropriate for some.

Of course, the first of the month is also a good time, as is high noon on Wednesday, 2:18 pm on Thursday. You get the idea.....

New beginnings are the kind of soul food that is good for the mind, the body and the spirit.

Even if you're not a morning person, you…

The body talks... or, give it an inch and watch it take a mile?

Not that I want to get into the whole inches thing, which reminds me of that 4-letter word that starts with 'd', which I've dropped from my vocabulary!

Anyway, after decades of overriding my body's voice with a whole bunch of generally ineffective 'd**ts', and a whole lot of emotional overeating, I sense, just lately, a change: Lo and behold, I'm starting to listen to my body, to tune in and ask what it would like to eat. How…

Goal Closer!

For the past two weeks I've been working on my concrete goal of fitting into a dress for a holiday party on Dec. 10th. I weighed in this morning at 166.7 lbs! So I think I have an actual chance of making it! I want to lose 4-6 lbs.more and I know it's only two weeks but with raw and exercise and a positive attitude I know I can do it. I'm so excited. It's nice to know I'll fit into the dress (and therefore not have to purchase another one). But I'm also excited because it means I can make a… Continue

Any raw suggestions to get over the craving?

Added by Penny on November 29, 2010 at 6:09am — 12 Comments

Before the day moves on put out a little gratitude...

I start most mornings at 5:51am, that is when the alarm goes off but I am usually waking up a bit before when I hear my son get in the shower. My little one woke up at 5:28am this morning two hours before her usual time. Ugh, I started to grumble a bit about losing my only quiet time. My son leaves at 6:30am and my middle daughter doesn't get up until 7am. giving me 30 minutes of pure quiet time, which I honestly don't use as wisely as I could anyway. Any-who, I realized before my attitude went… Continue

There's no such thing as a diet...

I have been learning about nutrition for about a month now. I was completely ignorant beyond the basic "food pyramid" thing and even that gave me a negative attitude because I resented someone telling how I needed to eat, especially vegetables and fruits being the largest part! (shudder)

The beautiful thing about learning to go raw is that there is no rush. For me, it's just been adding delicious smoothies...two a day. Ok. I…

Food Inc

My husband and I watched Food Inc the other night and I think he understands why I am doing what I am doing. I come from a background where both of my grandparents raised farm animals and had crops. I had so much fun helping with the animals on the weekends and in the Summer. The animals were treated with love and respect. The farms unfortunately went away and I didn't understand why. When I asked I was told that it was cheaper to buy it at the store.

Now after seeing how…

My juicer has arrived!

My Hurom has arrived! I've taken it out, gave the parts a wash and assembled it. I've read the manual and now I'm stuck. There is a little rubber pad on the bottom of the bowl and the only thing the manual says about it is "there is a rubber pad which allows all the juice to only discharge from the fresh juice ejection" SO does that mean I want it open or closed? It looks like if I close it the pulp would have no where to go. So I'm thinking it should be open right? Why would you ever close it?… Continue

update on my yellow skin....(adrenals, hypo,hormonal)

Since I last wrote, I have been following my doctor's suggestions to treat my adrenal/hypothyroid/autoimmune issues. She assured me that my raw foods diet was quite excellent, yet she asked me to add to my diet:

  • 'warming broths' to my diet (I am using organic vegetable broths from Trader Joe's..and also warming up green juices)-to these I add steamed squash or raw carrots.
  • an egg a day. I have done this only once-thought it would freak me out- but I sauteed it in…

You Know *That* Voice in Your Head?

You know the voice. Not the voice of reason. Not the voice that tells you how beautiful and wonderful you are. Not the voice that tells you that you are brilliant. I'm talking about the voice that says you aren't enough. We all have those voices. The voice that tells us we can't. That we aren't doing whatever it is the right way. I've even had that voice tell me I'm not vegan enough, or raw enough! Can you imagine? That is the voice of my perfectionist. What I call her isn't fit… Continue
