No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
Today is day 1 and Ash Wednesday as well. I have been doing really well with my workouts and also my diet. However now I plan to step it up a bit on the diet and go low carb with no fruit, lots and lots of greens and a good protein source.
Love my plantfusion pea protein.
I am including eggs and fish though. I know some don't but for me it is best.
Definately eating high raw and feeling great!
I found a new place to live so my expenses will be much better. So…Continue

I was just having a thought this morning and thought that I would share with you what I was thinking.
I am finding, over many years now, ways to make life better. I first started looking into changing my diet and lifestyle back in 2009 and committed to only raw foods for several months. Then, life happens, as it always will, with the passing of…Continue
Spinach + goji berries banana + orange juice
My favorite Green Cocktail :)…
Not sure what day it is, I am not too concerned with it. I am working out consistently at the gym. I am planning on implementing a new eating plan this coming Monday though so I think it will call it my Do-over restart plan Phase three.
Works for me, then I don't have to figure out what day it is! Ha, ha, ha!

Can someone please share any information regarding who won in the various categories?
Feeling still new to this, it's helpful to hear the various names that people might mention in reply to this post.
(I only know a few names of people in the raw lifestyle.)

Has anyone participated in the Cleanse America challenge? There is another one starting in a few days, but it seems it is only 4 days long. I'm thinking I want to do a smoothie, salad type cleanse. I have been having green smoothies daily since I joined this site and I want to take it a step farther. So far I haven't gone more than a few days without eating some sort of SAD food. I have Penny's Raw Food Cleanse. I don't know if I should just follow that or join Cleanse America.
After really dropping the fat from my diet the past couple weeks (it's been a process) I noticed a few things:
- Initially, a period of further detox. I thought I was done, but not quite. I would get these weird dizzy feelings in my brain just behind my eyes. They would last only for a second and after a about a week they went away. I also put on a few pounds. This seemed sudden and for no apparent reason so I chock it up to being…Continue
It's Valentines Day...the day some of my darkest fears about myself seem to come roaring back to life, even with all of the great changes and awarenesses I've made over the years. So today I continued what I think has been the theme of 2014...to do the things I want to do but fear going through with. In January I started running on the beach (don't get me started on why I was afraid to do that one) and tonight when my friend wasn't able to attend an event with me I went solo, followed up by…Continue
Had problems with my computer and so did not have access till recently. So I am really not sure what day I am even on. However, I have been going to the gym regularly. So Do well with that, eating on the other hand,, a bit out out of control, too many carbs like sweet potatoes, rice etc. I am planning on getting that back in toe this coming week. But at least I have my exercise going in the right direction.

Good Morning Everyone!!
I am daring to be BOLD. After a month long sabbatical, I am emerging as someone new. I am new because my focus has changed. And, now that my focus has changed, I have begun anew, and following a new path, making a new journey for myself.…Continue

I have been transitioning onto this 80/10/10 diet over the course of little over a month and just wanted to give a results update. So far, everything is excellent. I have lost about 6 pounds in about a month and a half (started going vegetarian, then substituting one meal a day with just fruit, now I eat 2 meals all raw fruit/veg and dinner is high carb low fat cooked). I find this diet a tricky one to adjust to in terms of how much to eat, how much to buy at a time so you…Continue
Ok...this is it...I just have to JUMP! And I'm gonna do it! My health,my life,my future depends on it! I have to give up cooked food and coffee cold turkey! I've tried easing into it...that's not gonna work. Cold turkey's the only way! I know it's gonna be hard at first. If I literally have to spend a week in bed due to detox,I'm gonna do it. I know that SOON,the benefits will far outweigh the pain! Wish me luck!
A great way to begin this day.....a time to refresh others and also be refreshed!
Don't miss the little surprises in each day!
Have YOU made out a graditude…
