Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I have been eating high raw for sometime. Love my green smoothies! However per my Doc I began eating meat again to help balance my blood sugar. Found out that actually my back injury and the pain response to that could very well have been the problem with my irratic blood sugar swings. Apparently, when your body has the pain response to an injury it increases cortisol levels which make it harder to balance bloodsugar. So now that I have resolved alot of inflammation by drinking alklaline…Continue

I walked into town through the park today - spring has finally come to England, hurrah! Decided to take some pics to show you , it's so beautiful; blossom, daisies, (can you eat daisies, by-the-way? they look so edible!), birds singing. The swallows have arrived...Continue
Some days I am all about eating raw. I feel fabulous, I see my gut shrink, I feel good..I get results.
Then some days, I freakiing don't care. I eat meat, chew on some crackers and before you know my pretty gut of mine is swollen.
I have been reading all sorts of books and websites and from what I gather it's all about my attitude, talking thin, talking like a raw personal, tell myself who I am so I become...ok that's all easier…Continue
The day was sunny and bright, the land was circled with canopies, all ready to share their wares on Earth Day. A day of promise.
I stood beside the van, awaiting opening time, as I had long anticipated some lovely raw food. They are a cafe in our state but a long drive away. Today they brought the bus filled with goodies.
As it naturally happens, another woman was waiting for the goods. Not sure how, but almost instantly I was being asked to identify myself with a label. Drat I…Continue
I am new here. I am 53 years old and have been vegetarian, vegan and raw vegan. I have eaten fish, eggs and dairy while vegetarian and have chosen not to at times. Currently I am mostly raw, no dairy but do eat eggs, fish and some chicken. I add Harmonized Vegan Protein powder to my daily green smoothie.
My question is, whenever I have attempted to be 100% vegan, I drop weight and lose muscle mass. On a good day I weigh 98 pounds, so have no weight to…Continue
I've been doing some reading and decided I'm going to eat raw foods! I've spent some time reading the 80/10/10 but I don't think I'll be going that road as it is extremely spendy here in Sweden to eat that much fruit so will definitely have to incorporate other foods as well. Yay food! I get to EAT! Now to fill out 2000 calories in a day :(

I haven't signed on to RFR in a looooooong time! I have had so much happen since the last time I was here! I am almost done writing my book! How exciting is that?!?! I have a title: 30 Days of A Raw Resolution, 3 sections: my story, my 30 days 100% raw, and recipes of what I ate at that time. I am currently working on the recipe section. I am also almost 5 months into school at The Institute of Integrative Nutrition to be a health coach. I am excited about that as well and have learn…Continue
Eating 100% raw is the ideal for me. I aspire to that idea. But I have not manifested such an aspiration... and when I eat bread or meat or whatever I tend to feel guilty because I had set a goal for myself, and have 'let myself down' so to speak. I do eat a diet high in raw foods, but still eat junk as well. I am just going to cut myself a break whenever and wherever I am because you know what I am headed in that direction. I ask God to remove toxic emotions from me so that I can live…Continue
I spent the day at the beach. I finally had the energy to figure out how to make my schedule give me one day off. Otherwise, I work 7 days a week. My brain, my body has been going non stop for 4 months.
In the past week, I made a juice, and my body loved it. When I bought organic produce and made smoothies, my body loved it.
When I ate salad, my body loved that. I can feel when my body craves salads.
I still struggle with having enough money and emotional…Continue
I very much appreciate a day being set aside to celebrate and help heal the earth. I know this earth day post is a couple of days late, but honestly, that works out perfectly for me. You see, to me every, single day is earth day. I am sure you have heard people (including me) say that about different days here and there but I promise you that I genuinely mean this!
I really, truly do at…Continue
So I bought this book called Rawmazing by Powers... and the recipes look delicious! I am going to incorporate them into my diet. Its filled with great looking pics of the food, so I am going to ask the family *which* recipe they are willing to try this week :) > um although I have been on a health food journey, up and down, for about a year and a half, my family has not really followed suit. They would benefit from being open to trying some raw food :) And I will feel much more supported…Continue
It's a dull, drizzly day outside and nice and cozy inside. A slow day for me as my energy is still hibernating I guess. Doesn't it know that spring is finally here?! The past two days were just lovely and we walked and I sat in the sun and read and looked up into the brilliant blue sky lots and so enjoyed the warm sun on my face. I love nature. It moves me as does music and dance, good food, company and art. I am in a writing mood today.
Yesterday I cried. This is something I…Continue
