Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
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
So I had finally gotten up the guts to ask this beautiful man over for dinner.... it only took me 8 months!
He said yes, but has been giving me random excuses whenever I pick a date. I'm so dissapointed because of course the rejection sucks. I know that people appreciate me for me, and that just because this beautiful man isn't for me doesn't mean that I'm any less of a person.... but tell it to my heart.
With the full moon and partial lunar eclipse approaching I…Continue

Just had a bowl of chopped apple, banana and blueberries for breakfast, sprinkled with cinnamon, a few walnuts and served with cold home-made almond milk. Yum.
For lunch, I'll take a couple of small flasks of my standby smoothie (juiced pineapple, lime, greens, blended with avo) as I'm going to be out all day and running around.
Dinner tonight will be that lovely-looking Eastern Dragon Salad recipe that Penni posted.
I'm back on raw after a week of bad stuff. Why do I…Continue
I haven't blogged in a while but thought I'd make a little list of good things in my life related to raw food and health:
1. It's spring...the time when I can start eating green things I pick again! Yay! The farmer's markets start being outside again and we can hang out at the park comfortably!
2. I have finally started doing some intentional exercise on a regular basis, which is yoga at home. I am pleased that I have been managing to do it almost everyday…Continue
I've only been eating 60-80% raw for the past 1 and 1/2 weeks (I'm a beginner and still trying to transition), and boy, there is already a significant change in my body's responses. I have always experienced terrible PMS and dysmenorrhea to the point of not being able to go to school and work for 2 days. I've consulted OB-Gynes but they all said it's normal. There was even one who prescribed painkilers to me that made it difficult for me to breathe and made me vomit. I've already come to…Continue
Last night I decided to get cracking in the kitchen. I've been avoiding recipes this year and just using my intuition and experience over the years to create some really magical things. It is only scary when I have company, but so far everything I've made has tasted amazing! Best Ever!
So last night I didn't have food to make, but was out of deodorant so whipped out the supplies to make more, and decided to try and make some natural toothpaste too! It totally worked…Continue
A musician came across this photograph of birds on a wire and read it as music, transcribing each "note" to create a tune.
When you look at the ordinary everyday things in life, WHAT DO YOU SEE AND HEAR?! : )
I CHALLENGE YOU to…Continue
Bf's mom went home from hospital, but with what she has we're still not sure whether that's a good thing. Hope so.
Feeling pretty healthy and great today so I wanted to quickly write down what I've eaten!!! I just feel very energized and ready to do a lot. I think part of it could be because I put my hair up. Who would have known having messy long hair can be such a weight. Maybe my hair up in a bun reminds me of when I was taking ballet classes for a few years as…Continue
I wrote this after watching one of the youtube videos shared here on how to cure emotional eating.
It can be solved. Change exists.
The problem with me is that more often than not when I encounter a certain situation, I feel that I'm powerless over that and there's nothing I can or anyone can do to change it. Because of that I turn to things that are soothing for me like food, makeup, and books. Oh and when I was a lot weaker I used to go to the salon too everytime I…Continue

I just want to say that I tried my first dandelion tea about 2 weeks ago, and I'm now almost through my first box!!! Love this stuff!
First I tried it with honey... good,
then with a little almond milk too... good,
finally I just had it black.... BEST!
If you haven't tried this tea, go get some and try it out. YUM!
Just simply feeling so yuck is what has finally brought me back to Raw in the hopes of creating a healthy lifestyle again.. all the amazing fresh fruit on our Bahama's trip didn't hurt the push back here either!
I wrote this in my personal journal this AM:
"My inner self has REALLY been talking…Continue
So I buy my greens from a farmer in my neighbourhood, and he is seriously the most beautiful man I have ever met. Last night I helped him plant some more seeds, and we sang to them to help them grow. I finally got the guts up to ask him over for dinner, and I can't wait for that to happen. He said yes but I haven't picked a date yet.
What I'm struggling with, is my broken heart still. I'm completly over my last relationship with regards to the person, but I'm still…Continue
