I have made a video/written a blog with my number one tip for moving forward on your path at an accelerated rate :)
Let me know what you think!
I am hosting a guest from tomorrow on until november 4th. It is a lot easy to do your food plan and eat when you want when it is basically just you. Now with hosting responsibilities I am preparing all my foods and making things I hope will be enjoyable to those not on my path-----yet. Today, I did get some positive feel back that my skin is looking very good and so that is nice feedback of the side benefits of eating this way.
I enjoy the eating raw till 4pm plan. I have my…Continue

CHANGE SOME **** IN YOUR LIFE AND TRULY UNDERSTAND YOUR MISTAKES.
so my sorry/stupid/victim-$$$ desided to lower my calories in hopes of seeing some results...
2000 ccal. AND I FAILED THE SAME NIGHT
So today is my first post. I'm not really sure what is expected of me, and I'm not really in the mood to do the whole, Hello, my name is Gemma and I'm a vegan...no I don't suffer a B12 deficiency!
Anyway, I need some advice from you long time fruit bats out there. WHAT DO I DO WITH LUNCH! Lunch confuses me, its such an awkward meal. I never know what to eat and I know what I do end up eating is definitely not ideal. Usually some pretty s***ty vegan food,…Continue
So I am relatively new to this whole lifestyle. I've always considered myself to be somewhat of a healthy eater and relatively active. I figured if I was getting in enough vegetables and keeping high-processed "junk" food to a minimum( with a treat every once and awhile) I was doing better than most average Canadians. It wasn't until I really started diving into all the documentaries, youtube videos, and books out there about the vegan lifestyle that I realized I could do…Continue
Much of the expansion work that goes into my garden begins in the Fall season. During the Spring and Summer I am not focused on expanding the garden because I am growing food at that time. In the Fall and Winter I am usually growing a small lettuce or kale garden but I can still work around it.
For now I am expanding the garden by including new Fruit trees; mulching all the Fruit trees; cleaning up ivy around the property line; making raised beds with logs; and constructing…Continue
This morning having my smoothie late 11am. At 8am with a phone call, I got caught up trying to get a dog adopted and avoid getting euthanized. Dog was just left. Tied up in the front of this spca. So very charged up day and now just getting around to my new version of my smoothie 2 huge honey crisp apples/1 large cucumber/1 whole lemon peeled and a blender full of water. So grateful to just do a quick blend and I have a big breakfast waiting for me.
10:30am suddenly could feel my…Continue

I am not a large girl right now, (size 6 to 8(mostly 8)) so a part of be believes that this is my body settling at a weight it thinks is healthy for me.
My inner legs retain a lot of weight. And by weight, I mean fat. My quads are rock hard, but for some strange reason my inner legs will not loose the fat.
It's not a big deal, but I can still grab a handful of fat on my inner thighs and around my arms. So will my body stay at this weight no matter what? Or is it going to be like…
A huge blender full of grapes and lettuce with water. I am eating early today as my energy was starting to drag and wow the ripe black concord grapes with lettuce is the best most filling lunch I could think of today. No messing up the kitchen. How about that for instant gratification. I loving it. :)

I hope you all enjoy :).

Sunday and feel really good about the progress I made this week of really listening to my body and eating accordingly. The crunchiness and the flavors are more pronouced. I also realized my water intake needs to way up to feel good. I am so enjoying the morning smoothies I actually look forward to having breakfast. Wow, what a change for me. I never liked to eat breakfast before. I now know why it made my stomach feel heavy and I felt sleepy and tired afterwards.

I did super well today but unfortunately after my plain unsalted foods of quinoa/lentil-veggie mix for dinner I am having a centralized over my left eye headache. I never get headaches so this is quite strange for me. Never run to meds not even for a headache. Going to have to look up some natural remedies to try and drink a lot of water to flush out whatever is going on. Since i have gallstones and the gallbladder speaks to the liver and pancreas.It is particularly important for me to…Continue
Hi all, not really sure who to ask so I thought I'd see if any of you 30 Badders could help me out! My ex husband has been suffering from seborrheic dermatitis for about a decade now & he has tried all of the doctor recomended "treatments" with mediocre success, the harsh chemicals help to keep it under control most of the time but it does flare up if he doesn't use the shampoo regularly. I hate to see him use those chemicals on his body, waste his money & never be able to get rid of…Continue
Woke up clear headed and quite thirsty. It seems that I am tuning in better to my body's needs. Yesterday quite interesting ate until 5pm and never got around to "dinner" and did not miss it. I was not having night cravings. I guess that I satisfied my caloric intake early in the day and was done by 5pm. That is a first for me to not want and look forward to dinner. It gives me a sense of freedom as if I discovered a new way to move in my day and my eating habits. It feels good. My…Continue

It's Friday and I'm reflecting on this week as I lay in my bed feeling lazy/fatigue from this week... I haven't felt so... apathetic, in a while. I'm just not feeling that vibrant or enthusiastic about much and I feel depleted. Not really sure if this is due to my diet or if things in my life are no longer "novelties" so the excitements have worn down...
This week I've definitely had LESS fruit and have been eating cooked food starting at noon (I was definitely more…
Just getting around to lunch. With the big water intake that I am doing in the morning making realize how dehydrated I was as it makes me feel so much better to have that much water in the morning.
A huge salad now and the palate is just refining as I am heightened in my awareness that the dressing could use much less apple cider vinegar. Good to see how my taste buds are adjusting that quickly. I still like the garlic flavor so that is my little treat.
Processing a lot of…Continue
