So I have major news! Someone suggested for me to use Cronometer to make sure that I am eating enough calories, and I just broke 2,000 calories! I have now eaten 2,030 calories today, and I just had a wonderful dinner of 2 steamed potatoes over snow peas with squash sauce on top! I feel so full and content, and especially so because my brother started leaving me alone when he saw how much food I was consuming. Even my mom left me alone and seemed satisfied that I was eating a lot of…Continue

My activity levels include: kickboxing for an hour three times a…

I'm sitting here reading posts about families and friends who don't support or understand why a person may want and need to become a vegan (completely ridiculous and ignorant!!), and I am feeling so grateful that my family is so supportive of me and my lifestyle choices!
I became a vegetarian when i was 9, the only person in my family, and a full vegan last year. Since that time my family has been so great at making separate meals for me- im 17 and still live at home- and in turn…Continue

Okay, so I haven't been on here for a while, but short story I found out what was wrong with me and I'm in the process of untwisting bowels and such and switched to eating raw again and feeling so much more motivated.
But! That's not the point of this haha
Lately, well, okay. More like my whole life, but now more than ever, I feel like I'm drifting away from every single person in my life. No one here shares my views on things other than my mom, my friends "support" my healing…Continue
Hey guys, welcome to my first blog! For those of you who dont know, I am a complete newbie at being vegan, especially since tomorrow will be my first official day. I would have gone vegan earlier, but I had the issue of persuading my mom to let me(more on that later). But now, I have decided not to listen to what anyone says about my diet(except those giving useful advice, of course) and to be vegan. I hope that I will be able to go raw or rt4 vegan soon, but with the situation that i am…Continue

I found out about how to make this dressing through youtubes Chef and The Dietitian. You can find the video here # 43 - Take 5 Salad Dressing

2 T low sodium miso
2 T water
2 T lemon juice
1 T low sodium dijon mustard. Blend it all together and…Continue

I learnt how to make Miso Soup for the first time today. Apparently it's good for balancing the hormones so if you feel blah before your period or whenever, have a bowl of miso soup. Chinese people have miso soup even for breakfast. I guess it's like their feel good chicken soup :)
1 cup of water. Bring to boil.
1/4 sheet of nori sheets because I didn't have kelp or Wakame
I also added some chinese noodles. You can also add green onions and potatoes instead of…Continue

Cravings for unhealthy foods and binge eating are no fun.
It can be really uncomfortable- even frightening - to feel out of control around food.
It's also no fun to feel like you want to eat foods that you know don't make you feel well. That inner battle and struggle can really overwhelm and take over your whole day.
Here are my real life tools that you can use right here, right now, today to help you move through what can typically be a really difficult…Continue

I am a Vegetarian. Yes I know this is suppose to be for the Vegan community so before passing judgement let me explain. I want to become a Rawtill4 vegan. Only a few months ago I wasn't even vegetarian! Crazy to think about really...I never had the desire to give up meat but when you get horrible migraines that…Continue

So I have been on this lifestyle for one month now. I have tried sooo hard. look I have came from a horrible path of anorexia, and after that mess I had to gain weight, and ever since then I was obsessed with how I look! Coming to this lifestyle I stopped weighing myself 10 times a day, I have stopped counting calories, and I enhanced my athletic performance. I am gaining weight, ok we have heard this a lot, but I believe that freelee is right, the problem is I'm a teenager and i'm afraid…Continue
I was watching this programme on BBC called 'eat, fast, live longer' which kind of made me laugh. Science basically proved everything that Freelee has been saying all along and all the scientists were like OMFG THIS IS BRAND NEW INFORMATION!! -_- The show starts with two guys in their fifties - the host of the show and a 'calorie restricter.' Funnily enough, to restrict his calories and get AS MANY nutrients as possible, all he does is eat fruits and vegetables :') Unsurprisingly, the…Continue

So I have been following plant-based vegan lifestyle now for five years with no intentions of receiving benefits in terms of my health. My reasons for coming a plant-based lifestyle were ones of ethical concerns, so my actions would be in line with my moral compass.
So I thought that I would share with you some of the amazing benefits that I have gained over the course of these five years:…Continue
