Long time vegan and health coach Alex Jamieson, made famous for her role as a vegan chef in "Supersize Me" has announced that she is no longer vegan. Interesting article, video and ensuing s**tstorm…Continue
I just noticed that Eco-Vegan Gal (Whitney Laurisen) has posted a couple of 80/10/10 recipe videos up. She is vegan blogger with a pretty big following so it's cool to see her giving 811 some…Continue
Something clicked in me last week, that I was fighting all of these bad habits: late nights, cooked vegan asian food, negative self talk. I was resisting all of them very hard. After some emotional things happened I was able to accept it all and let it go. This week it's been so much easier than usual to stay all raw.

Earlier this year I did 150 days 100% LFRV. 1 week should not be difficult for me. But I need to do a blog to hold myself accountable.
