No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
I got the official weigh-in from my doctor today: 23 pounds lighter since the last visit, for a total of 48 pounds lost since Aug 1st.
I think it would actually be more but I seem to be gaining muscle in my legs. I've been walking A LOT! Most days I walk at least 1 mile, and many days 3 miles, but I made it to 7.2 miles one day last week! That is a miracle considering that in the very recent past I sometimes felt as if I would not be able to make it from one end of the…Continue
Yesterday I was feeling really great so I walked 3 miles instead of my usual 1 mile. I wasn't hungry at dinner so I just ate a handful of lettuce, thinking I would eat more of something later. Then I took a hot shower... and I almost passed out. I've never had that happen before in my life... I started seeing stars, lol. I'm thinking it was low blood sugar. Fortunately my son was able to pass me a cup of juice through the door and save me from passing out naked in the bathroom. That would…Continue
Hey everyone! Sorry I've been away for a while, I've been busy writing a lot. I'm now at almost two months of raw (and never looking back!!). I've not weighed myself and am avoiding my doctor because she chastises me about "losing weight too fast" (Ha!), but I know it's over 50 pounds now because I thrift shopped some new sweaters yesterday and by the love of all that is Holy, I fit into XL size ;D Down from 3X to XL in 2 months... I wouldn't have believed it if anyone told me that was…Continue
Well I have to say this was so far the most delicious thing I have ever eaten, at least in recent memory. My kid loved it too and swore it tasted like there was meat in it (I didn't think it tasted like meat, but kind of like taking a bite out of heaven :D). Neither of us had ever tasted a parsnip before, but it was quite good even before I put it into the recipe. I think I will have to double or triple this next time.
I went raw on August 1st. Today... Just today... August 30th, a local restaurant added a DAILY raw food menu item (that looks incredibly delicious) to their menu.
Now... This restaurant is about seven blocks from my apartment!!!
I only found this out because I happened to see a new locally brewed kombucha that I was interested in trying... so I went to their Facebook page... where they said you could buy it at this restaurant... which landed me on the…Continue
Two days ago I stopped in a thrift shop and found something I've been wanting for MONTHS...
A REBOUNDING-SIZE TRAMPOLINE!!!
It's in perfect shape except missing one rubber foot.
Dr. Mercola says that is the best form of exercise... And it's gotta be one of the funnest, I think!
Guess how much it was?
I thought they put the decimal in the wrong place... I didn't think I would be able to afford one of these for a long time!So yesterday… Continue
I wanted to share some of the results of 25 days of 100% raw:
-HUGE improvement in health, arthritis in hands gone, swelling in ankles gone, chronic acne gone, coloring in face looks normal for the first time in... years? (Is it a coincidence that my old pic used for my avatar is in B/W? No, it is not!)
-My blood pressure is absolute normal for the first time in my adult life. It has always been high normal and a few times, worse. The nurse actually said, "That's VERY good!"…Continue
I bought my first durian today! Yes, the "stinky" fruit that is banned in some public places in Asia.
