Okay okay...let me get started. I have been with this raw lifestyle for almot 7 years now. I have been on and off the fruity pineapple wago three different times and EVERYTIME i come back to it because when on it, I have NEVER EVER felt better in my life. Rawfruitygoddess said soemthing that I wanna piggyback off of..."Why the phobia?"... Our society does a great job at instilling in us "less is better" when it comes to food and "more is better" when it comes to material…Continue
So... we're at the 2 months mark, as of yesterday! I can't believe how quick it's gone!
I have been enjoying the ride, I'm definitely not quite right with all of the aspects of this lifestyle, I still need to get more sleep and water, probably the hardest for me as I rise at 5:30am to get to the cafe at 6:30 and then I am flat out til mid/late afternoon so if I haven't had enough water by then it's really hard to get in enough for the day, then its a vicious cycle, but i'm…Continue
I really really live for melons. This week I ate tonnes of honey dew! Do you like honey dew?
Day 3 went fantastic. I felt great today. Woke up at 7:13am today , on a Sunday, ALERT and ready to start the day. Can't remember the last time I've done that. While the last two days were under 3,000 calories today I plowed through the food and ate about 3800. Tracking things on cronometer is getting less tedious and pretty fun.
Best thing of all: absolutely no cravings for cooked food. I didn't even think about it at all today until now as I write this post. All the…Continue
Ok, I saw a picture of a 'mamey' here on 30bad which was posted by Willa. I commented on it cause of it's intense color and it just looked so good. I forgot aobut it for a littel bit till Willa wrote in response to my comment.
Then I just HAD to go in an internet mamey search. I found it is also called mamey sapote, or sometimes sapote. Well, low and behold I found a local place that can get them. They are all over the place US and some other places. The company is…Continue
Alright guys, after sitting comfortably at 80% raw (the other 20% being cooked vegan) for about the past 2 months, I have decided to DIVE IN. 30 days, 100% raw. This also means I'm going to have to get diligent at keeping strict tabs on cron-o-meter, something I had neglected for a while.
So I am now in day 2. In day 1 I felt incredible. Day 2 wasn't as good as day 1 but it was pretty good. I hit up a new wholesaler today and I got some blueberries, some fantastic…Continue
For the past month, i've been experimenting with LFRW, dipping my feet in the water so to speak, trying it out. It was catching pneumonia a month ago that really freaked me out and made me want to change the way i eat so that I could get healthier. If being bed-ridden for about 3 weeks and breaking out in psoriasis all over my body wasn't enough, getting sick also meant feeling extremely fatigued and tired all the time. I decided to just eat fruits and vegetables in an attempt to get…Continue
On Monday I started to feel really itchy and by Wednesday I broke out in a terrible rash. After seeing a doctor and finally getting an appointment for a dermatologist I was diagnosed with an outbreak of eczema. The itching has finally gone down today as well as my raised pores and bumps. However it requires me to take the following drugs:
the steriod Progesterone- 5 tablets a day
zyrtec once a day for a week
pirotin- once a night for a week
bactroban- rub on twice…Continue

Hi Guys, this is my first blog post here at 30Bananasaday.com
I have a (non-commercial) hobby website which I'm shamefully semi-promoting via this post. It's originally about Computers (for beginners), the HTC Desire HD smartphone and Android which are interests of mine. However, more recently I've been inspired to start using it to promote the message of health, raw food and the reality of the meat industry and animal cruelty. I also made a page for a few people whose…Continue
Well, we arrived promptly at 5:30 am, first to sign in and get started. I am told I was about 2 hours in hte back before they wheeled me away.
I was out, but not really out. I had to be awake enough to respond when they said something. But....I don't remember a thing! And I like it that way =) I don't really remember them wheeling me anywhere, just waking up in the recovery area at about 8:15 am EST.
about 8:45 My hubby drove me home (bless his heart--he has barely any…Continue

So, everyone says get enough sleep...its all over the place on 30bad...
BUT...how can anyone expect me to get enough sleep when there is so much action and info going on here! I leave for a little while and so much happens! I can't keep up... :)

I just want to give a loud and big "THANKS" to everyone on 30bad for making this such a great forum with SO much info…Continue

i feel strange doing this
but i'm doing it anyway.
life's too short not to make a fool of yourself once in awhile
besides, "what other people think of you is none of your business"
30bad, i present to you, my first VLOG. i found it hard to stay on topic...apologies in advance for being rude and burping :)
i encourage YOU to make an equally weird video today, tomorrow, or sometime this week.
It's been a while since I really posted here. Life just took over somehow. And now, unfortunately I wasn't able to maintain the high carb low fat raw vegan lifestyle that I came to love last year. I miss it a lot and I don't quite understand why I am struggling so much to get back on the horse.
I think there are always these fears of missing out. Missing out on flavours and tastes (esp. when travelling) and missing out on social occasions (I love…Continue
My thoughts on NYC after only a few days.
Be aware of thought manipulation.
Mind control can be implemented in such a way as to have the subject thereof wholeheartedly believe that his implanted thoughts originated through his own intellectual processes. The subject would be left feeling that his new way of thinking is the conclusion of his own investigation and logical reasoning.
In truth however, the subject is held under the subjugation of an external programmer and is at the mercy thereof and thus…Continue
Well, Even though I have slipped up and ate SAD several days. I am still way healthier than I would have if I had NOT gotten 80-10-10, or been part of 30bad, or saw Megan's raw food videos & recipe books. I was hard on myself (as I feel I should have been) but a friend pointed out yesterday that I am way healthier than I was in the spring and to just suck it up go through tomorrow's surgery and work on leaving the unhealthy food behind and getting closer to where I want to be with LFRV…Continue
Here are some of my tips for adopting a fruity life style. What do you guys think?
