No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
today was a busy day...i managed to get my stats and pics up in the weight room and i got in 30 minutes on the wii fit, but i didn't get to work on my vision board. i did my sister's hair and make up for a wedding she was going to today and realised that i really do love doing hair and make up...i always have, but when i went to hairdressing school in 1995-96 i was 18-19 years old and i loved doing hair, but had really wanted to go to school for fashion design (i went for art, but never went…Continue
I am in the Vault-- I will work it. I will eat raw or plan my non raw foods to be steamed veggies and some cooked grains.Thank you for including some of these recipes on the site. If I plan this then having those non raw items will NOT cause me to say "to heck with it I already messed up today". I will NOT have dairy,wheat (except wheat grass), or meats. I know what these do to me (joint pains,eczema,increased weight,poor health).
I have a mini green house that I got with a Christmas…Continue
Hey there, everyone...
I wanted to end this year with a blog updating what's happening in my life.
You all know that I miracelously got a commercial vita-mixer about 2 weeks ago.
Well, I've been a blending fool. It's so much easier now for me.
I've gone about 70% raw with a few lapses and I hope hope to stomp those out as the days go by.
I'm already seeing results... a demin skirt that I was struggling to get over my upper body and hips to
Just little tidbits for New Years Eve......
Kevin & Ann Marie Gianni on New Years Resolutions you can keep:…
I have come to believe there are two kinds of people: the Moderation People and the "Better-off-leaving-it-alone" People. The past few months have convinced me, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I am a card carrying member of the second group.
I wish I was a Moderation Person! I would love to be one of these people who could have "just a bite" or handle "just this once and I'll get right back on track tomorrow." For some people, that must be true. Weight Watchers has built…Continue
This pretty much sums up what we are about.…
New Year's Eve 2009: After a bowl of cereal or a muffin for breakfast, the 250-lb. me waddled through the grocery store buying unhealthy and processed foods for my family's dinner. Legs aching from that exertion, I rested for a while upon getting home. I was still ignoring the fact that I had apparently developed a dairy allergy that made me feel like I was drowning in my own phlegm, so…Continue
Holiday Traditions have always eluded me since my mom passed away. When she was here, 30 years ago, we had many many things that we did together when Thanksgiving and Christmas rolled around. After she went to heaven, it was left up to me to pull it off and with 3 brothers who basically were not…Continue
Hi guys and gals,
I was wondering if there is anyone out there that is from the Kansas City or surrounding area? (Besides you Jane!) Just looking to see who is close by. Ill be moving to Belton area soon, but its not too far.

i haven't been since i was pregnant with our 3rd boy, of which there are now 4! so, it's been a while.

doing those stretches feels like loving myself. it's an active…Continue
So here I am...ready to start my first initiative with RFR in the Vault.
I'm feeling great, eating raw with the exception of Christmas day and the day after :) (I bought an amazing vegan apple pie from my favorite vegan restaurant) It was great!
I made a deal with a friend of mine at work. She is eating "raw" for 30 days at the start of Jan. 1st. She challenged me to try fruitarianism again for 30 days. I love it when people challenge me and we make deals…Continue
i was hoping to have my pic uploaded by today, but i didn't even get one taken yet...oh, well, i'll have one ASAP. i'm getting really excited. started making a decent sized batch of sauerkraut. did 50 minutes on the wii fit today. drank a huge green juice this morning. making a big salad for dinner with 2 of my best friends tonight. going grocery shopping in a bit(with my grocery list being mostly produce and everything else being from the health food section, or health food store...hoping…Continue
Today I decided to go to a local Asian market. Did I ever score! WooHoo! I found fresh/frozen seaweed, sea weed jelly, almost one pound Shiitake mushrooms for under $3, one pound Oyster mushroom for $3, 1 pkg Crab mushroom, 1 pkg White Beech mushroom, two pounds…Continue
So much going on in my life these days - college aged kids trying to find their way, a career that needs some adjustments, a raw lifestyle 1 and 1/2 years in the making, a carnivore ( yet TOTALLY supportive of my choices) husband.... in summary - life..
For the past week or so, I've been getting up every morning and doing an hour of yoga. I had fallen out of the routine for a few months and the first day was tough.. I was tight in both body and mind. I kept reminding myself…Continue
