Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I had a really fun day even though I didn't get to see either of my children. My son and daughter both texted me and expressed their love. I spent the day with my Mom and we had a really fun time. We went thrift store shopping and I found so much cool stuff! We also went out to eat and enjoyed that. It was quality Mother and daughter time. I hope all the mothers here had an amazing day! :)

A poem by Bette J Shaw
You are real tired and want zip
You have puffy swelling and bite your lip
You have stomach troubles and can't seem to poo
Or perhaps you can't stay out of the loo
The people around you are a mess
The docs and meds one source I confess
What is going on you may say
There is a "cure" and it can start today
Just look around at what we were meant to eat
You might be surprised it grows at your feet.
It is not in a…
Today I am off to Milwaukee to go to a graduation party over the weekend. I am planning on maintaining high raw and vegan during my stay down there. Those of you who read my 30 Days 100% Raw blog posts know that I learned that planning is key when it comes to eating raw on the road and last time I didn't do that very well.
This time I am far more prepared. I am bringing a watermelon down for breakfast tomorrow, a bunch of bananas, and oranges. I am also preparing a 5 cup…Continue

I'm saving money right now so it makes a lot of activities suddenly very expensive. So I started hiking two weekends ago, been on 2 hikes so far and I am going again saturday. It's so wonderful to get out in the mountains, away from the city and spend some time sweating.
I used to do mountain scrambles, I remember the summer I hiked up the iconic "middle sister" it took 9 hours and we were trail running out as the sun was going down by the end of the day. My body has…Continue
Today was the first day of my 60 days plan juice fasting. I’m gonna post everyday about my progress and keep you updated, well that’s gonna be a motivation tool for me as well. In my posts I’ll try to put my activity and also the juice I had for the whole day. Well I’m not an expert and this will be my first experience and to be honest although I’ve done some research about juice fasting but I don’t have a clue if I’m doing it in a right way or not and that’s why I’m…Continue

It's a cold grey day here in England, and I wanted something warm to have for my lunch, so I made up some coconut milk with a big-ish chunk of coconut dissolved in hot water. Chucked it in the blender with some frozen raspberries to cool it down, then added some Sunwarrior protein (my indulgent splurge this month - I've decided to treat myself to one new thing a month), some rocket, spinach and watercress, half a banana, my beloved Green Matcha powder and some cinnamon. It's warmish and…Continue
I've been trying to get as much info as I can about at home enemas. It's a touchy subject for me but I'm intrigued by the health benefits they can bring. From what my holistic doctor said and from what I've read, all disease begins in the colon. I was on a gluten free diet before going raw this time. I take magnesium baths and some other things she suggested. I haven't asked what she thinks about enemas. I see her tomorrow and I'm thinking about asking her opinion even though I'm pretty sure…Continue
Well, today is day 4 of my 30 days of mostly juice and I'm 10 pounds down. Yeah, yeah, I know its probably all water, but, 10 pounds, is still 10 pounds less on the scale. I was going to do all juice for 30 days, but found I couldn't afford it, so I added apples and oranges. So, I have green juice , raw protein powder (which I had two containers of already in the house) and I have 2-3 pieces of fruit a day. I'm still detoxing and feel, a little flu-like, weak and tired.But, I remember that…Continue

good morning to all of you!! Well, I got on the scale this morning and was really alarmed to see that I gained 6 pounds in one week!!! EEEEEKKKK!!! I have to admit that I haven't been 100% raw....i've nibbled on some naughty things like granola this week...but still!! Overall I feel that I've been tightening up on my eating, although I can do way better with only having 3 meals and not snacking in between. I don't want to get hung up on the numbers but I also really really do want to drop…Continue
Did a one day water fast on saturday. As a start up for my 3 day water fast that started today at midnight. Within my 3 day water fast, I will begin to also start on doing enemas to give my colon the extra help to be cleansed. After my water fast I am going to start my 28day 100% raw food journey. For the past few days I was able to afford to add about 70% uncooked greens into my diet.
I have done enough research of water fasting safely that I am confident, I will succeed. It isn't…Continue
I bought this stuff from Dr. Natura a few years ago before eating raw. Wondering what to do with it? Wondering if I should just take it and use it up or just get rid of it? It is out of the date for being good but I know alot of times things are good past those dates...it is basically a fiber supplement. Ugh, I have so many things like this that I have not used but purchased over the years and I feel bad about throwing away yet I am not using them.....hmmm any thoughts on this? It came in a…Continue
I've been stressed about money recently because since we moved my access to reliable childcare has gone down so I haven't been working enough. Several people I know are also dealing with financial crises so that is adding to the ambient fear around financial stuff.
Part of me knows that this is just part of a global shift and correction because the money system has to change if we want to be on the path to sustainability, and that money is energy and I can work on myself to change…Continue
