Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
That's really what I want to share....
I've gone out to dinner several times without even being tempted to order the food I would have wanted in the past. Instead, I've gone with a big salad and been totally happy. I'm SO glad to be free of cravings for food that I know is not good for me. I seem to be totally satisfied by eating healthy alternatives....amazing! My weight is slowly going down without any hunger or feeling of deprivation.
Having a green smoothie everyday has…Continue
I am amazed and very thankful that I made it through a whole month of being raw. It was a life changing month in many ways.
Just got back from another work trip. This time the motel fridge didn't freeze my fruits and veggies like last time because there was NO fridge :-(
Fortunately, my cooler kept everything cold until I was at work and could put everything in the fridge there. It all worked out in the end and I'm still raw but need to make sure I eat enough when I'm away from home and faced with unexpected adversity. It's all too easy to just not eat. Thank God for salad bars in most groceries. Whenever…Continue

I went out to dinner last night and ordered a chopped salad....the best choice on the menu for someone on a raw diet. As it turned out there were a few non-raw items in it but I think I avoided most of them. I'm trying to let go of my negative perfectionist self criticism which says:
"You dummy...I think you just ate a cooked vegetable, you have failed, you won't change, just give up and go back to your SAD. The maple syrup you used to sweeten the raw…Continue
I have onion bread, almond cookies and flax crackers in the dehydrator, 2 salads in the fridge and enough fruit to last until tomorrow. I made a banana pineapple spinach smoothie for breakfast, raw tabouli for lunch/dinner and have had lots of good raw snacks whenever I'm hungry.
I'm not sure what clicked and how I've managed 15 raw days but I feel better rather than deprived. No heartburn, sleeping well, and more energy. I have a little time off from my crazy travel schedule so I…Continue
Today's juice (romaine, spinach strawberries, banana, goji berries and a scoop of green food) is not so pretty but is hitting the spot, Just made an awesome guacamole and put fresh from the cob corn in it. It was delicious in a romaine roll-up. Feeling much better.
I'm back home. Still raw. The motel fridge froze my almond milk and all my veggies, fruits and dips. Great!!! The good news is my fruit and veggies still juiced, my salad dressing survived and there were lots of good salad bars around. Made it through some big temptations easily but now that I'm home I am craving SAD food especially cheese and rice. I'm hoping it'll pass.
So far I've made it through a weekend of company (yep, still raw). Everyone thought the raw food was great. I made a few things for non-raw friends but the best part was that the raw foods came out on top. High Raw Life Michelle's "Peanut" dipping sauce made a big hit ...I hardly had to wash the dish!!! I also served raw banana ice cream with raw chocolate sauce and a raw sunflower onion dip that got rave reviews.
Now I'm on my first raw work trip (I travel a lot for my job). I love…Continue
Intending to be raw for the month!
