How do you tell if a watermelon is ripe? I saw a woman at the market today tapping them all with her fingers and listening to the sound. Is this a good way to tell ripeness, and if so, how does it…Continue

This might be a no-brainer, but I want to check! Does making a seed milk drink (soley soaked seeds and water) give you the same amount of calories from fat that eating the equivalent number of seeds…Continue

Eating raw has been an amazing detox journey for me. I used to weigh 140lbs and lost half of that between the ages of 20 and 21 (12 years ago). I bumbled along with reasonable health and reasonably happy for a while after that. Then, in Jan 2010, I took the step to raw 100%. I ate totally raw for a year and a half and now eat very high raw. I am passionate about food and preparation and am building a healthy raw lifestyle business which will become the focus of my work and play :-)

What we can learn from monkeys

Posted on July 10, 2010 at 5:29am 1 Comment

Last night I caught most of a BBC nature programme filmed in a rainforest of the Orinoco. It was mesmerising television. There were two things in particular that struck a real chord with me:

The shopkeepers here in Italy – particularly the independent ones – have wonderful attitudes towards their wares. They are proud of their jobs, their shops and their produce and they take the time and find creative inspiration to display what they sell with flair, love and attention.…

Melon Heaven!

Posted on June 10, 2010 at 5:00pm 2 Comments

So, I thought it was just going to be oranges I would wax lyrical about (read about my lauding here) before shipping out of Italy and heading back to the UK for the summer, but no, the melons I have been blessed with being able to taste the last couple of weeks have bowled me over. They are a…

The Garden of Eden

Posted on May 23, 2010 at 6:41pm 2 Comments

I love apples. All of them – red, deeply sweet, pink, deliciously watery, crisp, crunchy, sharp, green – you name them, I love them. My favourite at the moment are some deep red, crispy Starks that I can buy at the Co-op here in Empoli.


The last few days I’ve been doing a water fast; my first one. It wasn’t planned until the morning it started, as impromptu as deciding on a day at the beach because the weather looks good. It was challenging but successful – I lasted 5 days.…

Oh, sorry for your cat! I wish you to be settled well soon and to have a nice cat with you! :-)

Hi, you are welcome! No, the kitty is not mine, unfortunately! I had lots of cats, all beloved by me, the last one died 2 yeras ago, but my father, who lives with me, does not want any more pets, because he says it is too sad when they pass away1 So I have had true withdrawal symptoms for 2 years now!!

Thanks for sharing that with me. How do you think the rebounder has helped? My balance issue has to do with my brain & muscle strength, so some of what you mentioned my help me too.
At 8:38pm on August 10, 2010, Alice said…
Thanks for your reply. My balance issues have nothing to do with my inner ear so I don't know how suitable what you've done would be for me but I'd love to hear more about what you've done....

Thanks Alison...I wish I were in Italy!
