"supplements Never the way to maximize health, no matter witch. And the only thing that can "boost your immune system" is more sleep, better diet, ie, meeting all of your body's needs as well as possible. Supplements create both imbalances and dependency. Even if this stuff does what it says it does -- and I highly doubt it -- taking it interferes with the body's ability to do what it needs to do.
An incredibly high level of health available to everyone, and achieving it, simple (if…

A few people have mentioned that they think I am undereating and should track calories, I have come from a life of counting/being aware of so I do not choose to on this raw food adventure, I just hope I am getting enough nutrients and minerals. I do not feel like I am undereating, I am certainly more slender but that is expected. I eat every time I…Continue
Hello dear Frutas,
I must say, peer pressure can be quite a heartbreaking experience.
So as the title suggests, I fell of the wagon. Hard. I'm honestly still in shock. I think it's time for me to come clean with everyone and give my whole story from the beginning up to today.
I've been dieting since I was 8 years old. As time passed by the seriousness of my dieting escalated. Today I am 17 years old. I have "mysterious" scars all over my body…Continue
Once in awhile I've had a day where none of the fruit I've so carefully purchased ends up to be spectacular.
Today, what is usually one of my favorite combos (blended canteloupe and orange --- bad combining, yes I know) turned out acrid and difficult to even drink... and I can't figure out why. Then I made a banana peach smoothie to take to work, and it too turned out acrid (I think that although the bananas had brown spots, the stems were still green, and they hay have not been…Continue

Hello fruity friends! It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged on here, but it’s time for a change, and I hope blogging will keep me accountable. To make a long story short, I am starting a month long LFRV challenge beginning in August. I would love to have company, so if you want to join, just let me know! Okay, now that’s the short version; if you want to know the how and why keep on reading :)
My name is Candice, and I am 21 years old. This fall I will be in my junior year…Continue

Yesterday went well with the friend :)
I am feeling like I need to go out and take photos more, it seems all I am doing is exercising and eating. I have 5 weeks left in Kent with my friends and family then it's back to university life and living with my housemates. I am usually looking forward to going back to Norwich but I…Continue
I always have Sundays off, and recently I have started taking Sundays VERY easy. I've decided to try to get most errands done during the rest of the week so that I don't have to worry about a thing on my day of rest. I do, however, enjoy going grocery shopping on Sundays, or to the farmer's market if I am lucky. So, today I went shopping and stocked up on wonderful produce and raw nuts. Everything I bought was vegan and the only non-raw items I purchased were almond-coconut milk and flax…Continue

After almost a year hiatus from the raw diet, I'm back at it. Thank the fruit flies for Freelee's Banana Girl challenge which struck an interest in my wife who is now fully on board with the raw diet.
Our fridge and kitchen are now full of cases of bananas, tangerines, mangos and strawberries. I'm pumped! Time to go eat another banana!
See you on the other side of the compost heap.

I only made it half way through day 2! It was 106 degrees in the shade, with full Iowa humidity. Most of the first day, i was feeling great! We stayed with my aunt and uncle in Iowa for a day before the ride started, so i was able to go to the grocery store and stock up on fruit. The night before the ride, i cracked open a gallon of bottled water, and finished it right before i started riding. I started off fully hydrated, and pissing clear every half hour. I started off with plenty of…Continue

I've been craving mangoes all the time these days. Well, I worked a half shift yesterday and all I could think about was mangoes. When I got off work around 2 I was starving. I made the big mistake I keep making over and over again: I went too long without eating. Four hours is a long time when you are trying to start off raw. So, instead of going home and eating my delicious mangoes, I went to a local vegan/raw vegan restaurant, but I didn't even order off the raw portion of the menu!…Continue
Would love to connect with other raw vegan mamas... my son is still primarily breastfed at 8 months and the only foods he's eaten has been pureed fruits, some hemp seed milk, and avocado...
During my pregnancy I did experience some enamel loss on 10 different teeth and really need to re-mineralize... any advice on that too? So far I am eating more greens and rebalancing the calcium/phosphorus.
gotta go run after my crawling baby.... be back later
This will be a short one, but hopefully it will inspire.
A month ago, I bought cleats for my bicycle shoes. I have Look 247 pedals and they use Look Delta cleats. I went to a store local to my job. They handed me Vangàrd cleats. They are copies of Look's own Delta-cleats. Although they are roughly $5 cheaper than Look's cleats, they are utter crap:…Continue

So, I'm pretty new to this lifestyle and I'm still transitioning to being totally lfrv so I've been still eating boiled potatoes every now and then when I get a cooked food craving. I was just wondering if I continue eating potatoes would I get the same benefits from this diet? Or should I cut them out as soon as I can? Any advice is welcome!
Firstly I cannot believe how easy this has been! I feel so much lighter, unlimited energy,so much water I cannot even count, 8-9 hours sleep recently and I have been exercising all throughout the day, I want to incorprate exercise into my daily routine more and more basically be more active such as walking everywhere, hikes, running, hula hooping and dancing like a fool :) I think I will weigh myself every week just to keep an eye on whats happening. I am currently 22.5% body…Continue
