The summer garden has nearly ended. There are some tomatoes and beans left, but much of what is left of the garden has been canned, pickled, and frozen.…

Wow - I can't believe it's been four months since I last posted.
Well, I'm back.
I love to treat September like the start of a new year. This summer ran pretty smooth for me, both with diet and activity, but I still find myself struggling to eat enough without having to track my food.
So I have decided to return to daily blog posts, religiously entering my food into Cronometer, and owning up to every single thing that enters my stomach.
Meant to post this last…Continue

Just wanted to stop in and post an update on my healing. I am not going to go into detail in this post on what I have been suffering with. Many of the long-termers are aware of my struggles and at some point, I will elaborate on those again. For now, I want to share some good news.
I have been here since April 2013. I immediately began as 100% raw and maintained it for a year. After a year, I ate primarily raw til 4 and that then became raw til whenever. I even tried a…Continue
Are you afraid to fail? To be a failure?
Failure is, for most, one of the biggest nightmares in life.
The idea that you could try something and not do well, have it not go how you want it to go, to not be successful is generally enough to stop pretty much everyone dead in their tracks.
It is this fear that paralyzes even the most gifted of us. It stops art, progress, and expression.
In short, it is a huge waste of energy and talent.
I will teach you in this…Continue

Love eating fruit in the morning until I am completely full. Feels absolutely wonderful.
Enjoying watermelon while I have it available in the markets. I ate a whole medium size watermelon and that felt fantastic. How simple and delicious.

Breakfast is my most favorite meal of the day! I think it always has been. When I was young I used to love my cereals. Fruity Pebbles was a favorite of mine! I could eat cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner if allowed.
Thankfully I have changed my eating habits. Breakfast still is my favorite and I still love a bowl of "cereal". My cereal bowl is now full of fruit!…Continue
Learning to trust yourself will most likely be a huge key to your freedom in this life.
When you know that you can trust your gut, trust your intuition, trust yourself generally to make choices that will benefit you - so much of the fear, anxiety and stress of life will melt away.
The only problem?
Going from someone who does not trust yourself to someone who does feels like jumping from the bottom of Mount Everest to the top in one fell swoop.
Trust me. I…Continue

Play and Pleasure.
These two words are the keys to your success in this life.
These two words also carry with them a tonne of emotional baggage, and if you are anything like the masses out there, you most likely have a hard time with these two concepts.
You may feel that you must work first, play later.
You may struggle with feelings of guilt when you take time out to play.
You may feel that pleasure is a luxury, not a need.
You may be the kind of person who…

The vegan community is great! I just love the sense of community that comes with connecting with others who have succeeded and love this lifestyle. We all are here to learn and grow and all have different experiences to share. The community is growing tremendously so there are many people out there that you can connect with and follow.
Most raw vegan foodies are very compassionate…Continue

The cushaws seen in the photos were grown by my grandmother's friend. With these, I will use parts of the cushaw to eat and will also save the seeds to grow these fruits next year.
What we have harvested this week from the garden are additional cucumbers, beans, and some baby melons.…

The first time I ever carbed the f*** up... A life changing moment that set in motion the rest of my life. I was finally carbed up enough to know I was undercarbed.

Being energetically sensitive is a huge gift in this life.
Well it is, when it is not busy kicking your A**
So many people who are sensitive to the feelings, thoughts and emotions of those around them feel like going out into the world is akin to walking around a battle zone.
Feeling anxious, fearful, out of touch with your body, like you have a million thoughts swirling around your head, even developing O.C.D like behaviours and other physical symptoms seems to be a…Continue

I'm going to start off by saying I'm Ashley, and I've been following Freelee and Durianrider for a few years now.
I currently weigh 338 Pounds and I'm 5'10''. Which means my BMI is in the 40's. Not my proudest moment, but also not my highest weight. I've slowly worked my way down from 345 to my current weight. My highest weight is also 360, but I've not been that since I was around 19.
I've been a liberal vegan for pretty much a year. What I mean…Continue
It is time, more than time, to start valuing your own experience and your own intuition over the advice of others.
There are SO many people out there who are willing to step up and tell you exactly what you should do. They are willing to say 'if it worked for me, it WILL work for you, and all you have to do is follow my lead.'
But, what happens when it doesn't work for you? Are you wrong? Are you broken? Is there something messed up about you?
In todays video I talk…Continue

I'm going to college soon and I need some advice.
What did you take on school days? Can you maybe give me some examples of your diary on a school day? I use to eat a salad for lunch with fruit, but every meal may take me an hour to eat. So that's too long for school or work. How large does bottles need to be for smoothies and do you have some smoothie ideas?
