Right after I made that last post about not making any more excuses and holding myself accountable, I left for a 5 week work trip. I also happened to come down with the flu on that very same day. It then turned to a respiratory infection, and long story short I'm still feeling like utter crap a week later. I've been sleeping for long periods of time and I had to take two more days off of work (I'm almost out of sick days by this point!) I'm feeling frustrated, and I'm wondering if trying…Continue

As human beings, the purpose of our existence is to BE. It is only from this state of being that we become deliberate creators of our reality and, as a result, manifest whatever it is we desire. Our physical actions are merely the result of our state of being and product of our wishes.
When we feel emotions such as joy and happiness, it's easy to describe life as being 'Perfect.' Everything seems to 'flow' when we're happy, appreciative, and full of joy. This is why it's so important…Continue
I feel life is like a menu. I can only get what I want when I first decide and then choose what it is I desire.
It is my dream to live happily and healthfully in a large (500 + people) fruitarian based community on the most sustainable island of Hawaii 365 days a year. I intend to use my urine to nutrify the soil, and my feces to plant the seeds for organic, non-gmo, fruit trees. I want to water the plants with diluted ocean water too. I want to live sustainably and be an…Continue
My body has taken over and will not tolerate anything less than raw fruit & veg. The last few cheats, popcorn and sweet potatoes gave me severe gastric distress and constipation respectively. Those were the last few non raw foods I was partaking in regularly and now they are out. I feel incredibly energetic and better than ever at age 45. Thanks so much everybody here for your support, suggestions and love.
So official dates:
Dec 12. 2010 have had 3000 cals of fruit…Continue

I would like to get some advices for baby food...
I have a 3 and an half baby girl that I wanted to only breast feed, but I got pretty sick when she was a week old and through the disease, my body almost complytely stoped producing milk...So I was so afraid she would starve to death so with the advice of my midwife, started to give her baby powder milk along with mother milk so she would eat enough...When I was healthy again, I tried 2 weeks long to only breast feed…
SD come share in the ripeness
IDK what to do. I made a quart (yes a quart) of my own invented green drink for dinner. I wasn't thinking while I was making it. I put an entire tray of asparagus in there. Don't follow my example. I can barely stomach it. And I LOVE green drinks.
Delicious raw soups recipes for cold winter days :)
Many raw food vegans and others who are simply trying to eat healthier diets fear holiday gatherings. I understand being concerned about what others will think/say, being a polite guest, and finding a healthy, satisfying meal that you will enjoy.…Continue
Michele has inspired me to give 100% another go.
She laid forth a green smoothie challenge on Facebook..... not sure of the details - but am starting today.
Cooked dinner is leaving me feeling a bit heavy and congested.
bananas + dates + salad
veg juice + apples, raisins, figs, cinnamin + salad
Some days are a mix...
It's been more than 3 weeks without meat and I am truly feeling great. I have learned so much from to 80/10/10 book and have been eliminating grains, dairy, beans, cooked food, and less fat.
I truly enjoy eating so many fruits each day and only having to eat lettuce. It's simplified grocery shopping and packing lunches for work.
Benefits Noticed so far: weight better, acne better, mood better
This is my 4th day of 100% raw 811. I have done 30 days before but fell off the vagon after i tought that a slice of bread wont hurt me: "I will just eat this slice of bread and then be back on 100% raw". WRONG! :D So i pretty much binged last 2 months on junk...but im back now. I still feel a bit shaky doing this but i really really WANT to succeed. It dosen´t even matter if i fell off the path 100 or 1000 times, i will come crawling back and try again. Never give up!
Now I've been on and off %100-80 raw for about 2 years now and I must say that this community has to be the most entertaining bunch of people I will ever witness.
Example: David Wolfe: Westerners actually buy into his bulls*** and buy things like deer placenta and believe that something will charge you INDEFINITELY! Yes, and floating mushrooms exist and DurianRider is a murderer.
DurianRider: The guy gets flak for speaking his mind and telling the truths about what is…Continue
I don't know what it is, but every time I see raw or cooked meat, it makes me body hurt, like as gross as it sounds it feels like those are my organs that people want to eat. I don't even understand why people eat meat in the first place, its flesh from an animal that was once living. I almost want to tell people, "A creature died so you can be fat". haha, I'm kinda mean about it sometimes, but I'm really passionate about this, I hate what we do to animals in this world, its sickening. One…Continue
Just as in the 811 Way of Life we know that "Cooked" foods are Life Stealing I've always wondered if there was a way while the money system still exist and must be navigated within to produce "RAW Money?"
I have found such a way! It can be done globally as a Professional Blogger. Why blog for free when you could be getting paid?
