Once upon a time,
I decided I hate change. It just hurts too damn much!
Now, that statement wasn't exactly true; I hate how much change hurts, but I know it can bring about such good things. It is hard. I think it's hard... Growing hurts. Maturity does not come without a cost. Wisdom is not learned in one day. Shucks DARN I wish it was all as easy as enjoying a sweet, juicy mango! But, alas, growth is not. Change brings about either growth or retardation. And…Continue
These are my dealers. Hope you like!
I think I first discovered this site in 2008. I instantly felt in my gut that this was right for me. This was true health. No fad, no uncertainty as to whether this was the best way to live.
But alas, I let things, trivial things, get in my way. Time and time again. Trying to get a quick fix, falling further off the rails, the endless "I'll start tomorrow" cycle.
I always come back though. Even when I go to try a fad to lose a few quick kilos I always…Continue
"Life is like riding a bike. To keep balance you must keep moving"
On June 18 I started a 30-day challenge to stay 100% LFRV.
The first 8 days are listed here:
Here are days 9, 10, and 11:
Sunday, June 26
This was the first big challenge - out on a job during dinner time with food being served. I was…Continue
So I've made the decision today to go back to LFRV : )
To clarify- I never really decided against LFRV...just sorta slipped and slid back to old ways of eating. What can I say- it's been a year since I was truly LFRV (I've been just plain vegan since)....and although going back to eating a vegan diet that included cooked and sometimes processed and sometimes junk foods did not destroy my life whatsoever, I do miss that feeling of vivacity and being in love…Continue
Feeling better, slept well :) <--- major thing for me!
Ok, so I did not make it through day 2 completely SAD free. But....I do feel much better with having eaten 95% raw (bananas). I woke up early today and actually felt like getting up and being productive. Love the morning time! It is so quiet and fresh. I will be getting some more bananas today, riper ones that I got before because I will be getting them in bulk and they ripen them to various stages for grocery stores,…Continue
I decided to go for it, made a a smoothie made of 10 bananas and some mixed berries this morning, lets see if my energy elevels are back high again.
Also I want to feel happy, I used to feel like skipping when I have loads of nanas.
Will update later :)
I am so annoyed I don't have access to the site at work. Its banned for whatever reason.
We have one large room coming available for rent as of July 1, 2011. To live with myself and my raw foodie brother Justin (also on 30 BAD), and my partner Laki (also on 30 BAD).
Fully furnished, bus stop close by with regular buses to the city. We have two small dogs (note- They eat raw meat) but we will keep this in separate fridge. We are sensitive to chemicals so seek people who will not use sprays such as perfumes and deodrants. we are eco-minded therefore strive to conserve…Continue
Today I decided to go on my first real run in about a year or two and OMG so hard. I mean Im not a couch potato, I bike around 30 or 40 miles 5 to 6 days a week with no problem and I long board 2-3 times a week along with various other random activities. But holy cow! This 1 or 2 mile run beat me to the ground. I was huffing and puffing. I did track and field in highschool and this run made me think "holy @#$% how did i do this for 4 yrs?!??!" hahahaa.
so my question is…Continue
Someone is finally offering on my parent's house! Thank goodness...we've been having at least 5 showings a week for the past 2 months, it's been really inconvenient.
I pretty much get to pick where we move even though I won't be there long. I'm searching for apartments within walking distance of various farm stands I know of. Maybe I could even get a job at one. Most of my stuff is already packed too. I might just sell my furniture...I prefer sleeping on the floor anyways.…Continue

has anyone had to deal with the lose of the curvature of their spine?
I went to see a chiro and he said he could fix it with many adjustments.
look forward to hearing from you and what you think about it :)
Having gained a lot of flabby weight and suffered a zillion binge attackes on the gourmet raw, I realised something was up. I actually started out on raw way back in 1994 when there was no internet and no books let alone recipe books. So I used to just eat loads of fruit salads, fruit smoothies and juices etc.
Fast forward a few years of semi-raw cooked veggie diet and I went raw again, still high fruit and low-tech (I lived in a caravan with no…Continue
Bit frustrated today, I feel I’ve been half doing stuff for so long, not progressing really. The lack of energy is not a good thing, I can’t see how I can increase my calories, I had a smoothie this morning of 4 bananas, kale and lettuce for breakfast. Then grazed on a 1lb of raw carrots.
Lunch was a huge stir fry veg, I divided them into two halves, half I stir fried for a couple of minutes and half I left raw and mixed the two together, I had a few spaghetti with it, like…Continue
Nature vs. Computer
So what am I referring to? So many people jump out of bed in the morning in a hurry to get here or there. My vice is hte computer. I grab my water, and head for my office, sit in front of the computer and...BAM I am stuck all day. Immediate stimulation of the senses into a hard digital world inside.
I took a different approach today. A few weeks ago, I moved a small table and chair from my closed in back porch to the open front porch.…Continue
I was doing so good today, not hungry at all.
But around 10pm. I had cookies. and Doritos. this is stuff I would not ever normally eat. I haven't had Doritos for 2(?) years. And I am not a particular fan of Chocol*te-Chip Cookies.
What happened? It probably explains everything in the 80-10-10 which is on it's way. But I have seen where others are all good in the daytime, but not at night.
I thought I would be strong. And the cravings had…Continue
This post was written on 22 April 2011. I had been feeling rubbish having tried to live as cheaply as possible, even to the detriment of my health. I thought I could get away with living on less than $2 before dinner - oatmeal for breakfast then baked beans on toast for lunch. It lasted on and off for a few months. My nails got really brittle and my hair was just so dull and limp no matter what I did. Henna only covered the problem for a little while. My skin felt…Continue
