Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Today I went out on a limb. I found a recipe online that talked about making a "burger' out of the remnants of the juice. However, I didn't like the idea of having to add eggs to make the burger bind together. Nor did the ingredients sound like they would POP much in terms of flavor. However, the idea of making a burger from the remnants stuck with me.
I kept thinking about it, but had no real plan so, I opened the fridge and picked some vegetables out three…
This wrap is really simple, delicious and highly nutritious! If I listed out all of the nutrients and benefits you are getting from it, this post would be eight feet long. That said, I will just highlight a couple of things ~ healthy omega 3 and 6 fats from the avocado, protein from the chard and the avocado, heavy metal detoxification from the cilantro, digestive promotion from the dill and pretty much all of the vitamins and minerals that exist from all of it! Plus, it is all…Continue

NFL players have certainly been known to make a variety of alternative lifestyle choices in order to stay healthy, from dancing ballet (Lynn Swann) to following a vegan diet (Arian Foster). And just because most of the food commercials you see during the Super Bowl are for less-than-healthy munchies like potato chips, soda, and pizza, who’s to say that your viewing party fare must be over-processed and full of empty calories? Beat the stereotypes!
Looking for tasty recipes that will allow you to whip up a quick & satisfying lunch or dinner in no time? Then be sure to try this refreshing gazpacho with cucumber and pineapple. It’s the perfect soup for a sunny late summer day, but you could also serve it as a…Continue
I ate at a really cute place called Silly's in Portland, ME this morning. I had vegan french toast that was sooooo good!
I asked for the recipe and all they gave me were the ingredients. No measurements or instructions. I'm not big on creating in the kitchen so I was wondering if anyone could help.
These are the ingredients:
Bread: flour, water, live yeast, salt and sugar
Batter: soy (I assume milk), cinnamon, vanilla and…Continue

Almost 100 percent raw today :) Sauteed some broccoli and mushrooms and put them on top of half a head of shredded lettuce...and then the 2 tbsp of carob powder and 1/4 cup of soy milk I use in my banana ice-cream isn't raw...but everything has been fruits and vegetables. I feel really dedicated because I SO need to be able to get a job and live my life!! I'm trying hard to forget about the foods that plague me and keep my Eye On The Prize...........Funny though really--the foods that…Continue
Today I had two zucchini pastas, one light one for breakfast (I really seem to thrive best with a light breakfast and a heavier lunch...there's something about my digestion that seems to approve of it...I also like the light feeling in the morning, feeling all refreshed to start my day and then gradually increasing as I need more energy), and then a bigger one with two zucchinis, a small carrot, and a shredded raw brussel sprout and of course sauce ingredients for lunch. I had two banana…Continue
Wow, I am really amazed at how much better I've been feeling today...Goodness me!! :)
All I've done is made maybe 60 percent of the food I am eating raw, and the rest is grains and cooked veggies... The grains probably are at least 25 percent...goodness. I am more regular today than I have been probably all last week combined!! I am cleaning out and I feel so much fresher!!! :)…Continue
Ahh, the now vacant area where my molar was but yesterday morning is healing nicely. A nice thick clot (that will hopefully stay there lest the evil monster that is dry socket rears is ugly head) and zero pain. I am pleased.
I have been laying about visualizing the area healing beautifully surrounded-to my surprise- by a pink light (i hate the color pink). But eh, I'll roll with it.
I came across a recipe on pinterest I am very interested in replicating raw but I don't know of…Continue
This morning I was eating a most unfortunately SAD food (always vegan, of course, but still), and I decided to do my flavor memorization technique. It's actually embarrassingly simple. I just remember how the food tastes in my mind. I immediately set down the food and didn't want it anymore because I could remember how it tastes and that was enough for me without all the gook and the calories inside my body.
It's interesting to me how well this works. I think that makes my problem…Continue
Ah ha! So I found this on YouTube and I'm at work so I can't find the link unfortunately but I'll try to post it up later if I can!

Dinner last night I had salad. :) Just couldn't update because I was gone!
Pain levels--getting there!!! Last night and this morning I had more energy and less pain!!!
Also want to note that ulcerative proctitis has not been bleeding at all lately :) Something good is happening!!!
Breakfast: Small portion of mixed fruit and small portion of cooked fried carb at a restaurant with hot sauce (we'll see what happens), along with wonderful glass of orange…Continue
Wow, I woke up at 2 in the morning last night, no idea why, maybe because I was stressed deep down because I knew I still needed to both brush my teeth and wash my makeup still on...I went to the bathroom.
A couple days ago, I swear even yesterday, there was this patch of pimples running along the left side of my face behind my hairline...gone. Completely gone. It was like they were never even there. And the skin there looks baby smooth and pore less. WHAT…Continue

First of all I am putting this at the top because OH MY GAH.

I was in shock at how good these tasted...All I was trying to do was use up my cabbage...I didn't expect to actually make something that tasted delicious :P I inhaled my first batch before I could take a picture.
Take 6-10 whole leaves off of a red cabbage and remove the thick…Continue
Well, I don't mean to be depressing but I realized something kind of bad this morning.
My arthritis has been spreading. I did not even really want to admit this to myself and I think that's why it took me so long to realize, but why else would I be feeling it all through my back. It's not just in my hip and lower back as before, it's agonizingly all along the left side of my back now.
That's probably not raw's fault. I've only been raw for 3 months, not even 100 percent…Continue
MUSIC IS THE HEART OF ALL LIFE!!
I'm listening to Take Me Out by Franz Ferdinand and getting all excited. I notice something about myself. I can be sitting down, all tired, no energy, and a song I love comes on and, rather than be unable to get up I can NOT sit down!! So I've been listening to, playing music all day. Practiced for hours on my piano. I would love to get super good and be self-taught.
I also kept the house clean! Not a completely pain-free…Continue
