No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
August was a really HIGH Stress Month for me.
August is usually my busiest month of the year for my Full-Time-Job but added pressures at work had me angry and anxious as well as stressed out. Then...long story short...my Aunt passed away of a VERY progressive and aggressive lung cancer that they couldn't do anything about (she didn't even make it 3 weeks once she found out!) so my family traveled to TN to be with my uncle in his time of emotional-need.
I know I have a problem with worrying about things I cannot control. I'm trying my best to work on that. Things I am able to control I need to think about and work at and not take them or that for granted. Sometimes I just have to say that or type that to remind myself I guess.

NEVER underestimate the power of a salad!
I've been doing some deep thinking lately - about FOOD. But then again aren't we all? Specifically about SALADS. And here's why...
Even as a lacto-ovo vegetarian for 18 or so years I would always have that good-ole-standby salad ANYWHERE you go out to eat! My husband would get upset if restaurants wouldn't offer vegetarian options MORE THAN "just a salad"...and he's a meat eater. But at least I have his support in…Continue

I have been buying my sprouting seeds from a local small business woman who has an herb and alt health shop in my town. Today - during my lunch break - I went over to stock up on my sprouting seeds. Little did I know the State of Pennsylvania has made it illegal for HER to purchase Sprouting Seeds and Supplies to then pass along to ME - the consumer. She usually orders thru Frontier Co-Op and they have told her they can no longer ship her these items. She's unable to purchase them online…Continue
I'm sitting here blogging in a completely different place and time. It's kind of nice. I have the tendency of getting into a groove and need to change it up...just generally speaking.
Continued digestion progress and success! YAY! I'm very happy about this! This is like 8 days in a row! I don't think that this has EVER happened for me ever in my life!
I've also lost around 8 or 9 pounds! That's always a PLUS.
I had a good day again…Continue
I'm back for a crazy blab again.
Totally random and raw thoughts today!
It's been a week or so...sorry!
My frame of mind for the past week has been very positive! I'm pleased! Another thing I am pleased about is the fact that my digestion has been very good for a week, too! EACH DAY! YAY!
I chalk it up to - higher raw - even tho this week has been lower than last week - with the addition of Hemp Hearts!
I have made two new…Continue
How's THAT for a blog post Title?
Today's post will be shorter than my previous two...that is for sure!
Today's Juice was 5 Carrots, 2 Celery Stalks, 1 & 1/2 inch Ginger...I'm running out of produce...will have to visit the stores ASAP and maybe again this weekend! I really enjoyed this juice! At first sip it was very sweet. Then I thought it would be a great Milk Substitute! Then...I picked up on the ginger - nice kick! This is simple and…Continue
I'm glad I waited to write today's blog post.
Yesterday I was all Raw - I do believe!
I consumed 1,260-ish calories. 237 Carbs, 34 in Fat, and 42 in Fiber. According to the SAD Diet - that I generally ignore - I was 72 over in carbs, 6 under in fat, and 28 over in Fiber.
I was pleased with how yesterday went. I went to bed extremely early (for me, that is) around 10pm est. I normal head-up to bed between midnight and 12:40am. This is the 2nd night of…Continue
I only pre-thought two things I wanted to blog about today - so this is sure to be another BLAB.
Yesterday I did alright. The only "cooked" food I ate was black beans. I did mono meals with clementines, ate a "soup", veggies, and guacamole with 2 avocados (only ate 3/4ths of it) and crushed tomatoes with lemon juice. I was 20 grams over in my "SAD" suggested Fiber for yesterday. The only reason I am bringing this up is because I have digestion issues (or lack there of) -…Continue
I blog online in several different places about several different subjects! Those blogs draw people - mostly - from all walks of life and they think what I post is either COOL or at the very least interesting but leave nice comments for the most part.
I'm a no-conflict type person. I feel everyone has enough stress in their daily lives - I don't want to contribute to it or more! I'm a "whatever floats your boat" type person...I respect other peoples thoughts, feelings,…Continue
