Meal Plan Monday!

It has been an interesting few weeks.  I found a fig tree in my neighborhood yesterday on no one's property and there was one semi-ripe enough for my oldest daughter to eat it.  A family member gave us some awesome fruit & veg from the garden, including melon!  We got organic raspberries at 99 cents a basket. I found some great resources for starting up the fruit bank and cost-share and most importantly I've planned the whole weeks meals for my family. 


The weather is…

Add Years to Your Life with Just a Little Exercise


A new study found that adding only a tiny bit of exercise - 92 minutes a week (only 13 minutes a day!) - lead to three more years of life expectancy!

"His diet works!"

I just went on a short 8 miles cross country bike ride with 2 of my friends. I could barely keep up with them a little while ago. Today, I've shredded the trails (thanks to HCRV diet)! I was waiting for them to catch up with me and then I would say right away: "Ready guys? Let's go!"  LOL


Then to really traumatize them, I told them wait until I shed the extra weight I have!

When we came back home, one of my friend told his wife: " HIS DIET WORKS! Unbelievable the…

and...Thank God I got my behind back!

9/5/5 real deal here, not just a few months of eating more fruit. I lost a lot of hard-earned body on the raw diet since 1999, and it took several years to show. My knowledge & practice of vegan nutrition had not included raw. Nor 95% -98% fruit. One thing I want to advise is to never to listen…

dh is convinced that trigycerlide number of 325 or even 250 is only borderline bad.  sigh.

i am fat, fat, fat, and my numbers are not like that at all.   he wanted me to do a 4 month contest with him and if he does better (not sure what the metric would be) than I do, then I have to do exactly what he does and eat what he eats.  I agreed to that on the condition that if I do better than he does, that he has to be raw vegan from now on.  He lost his confidence at that point. He was all…

Isolation equals elevation

The path to optimum health sometimes leads me to isolation.  I do not know anybody in my everyday life who is as disciplined to eating 100% raw foods as me.  Although I have inspired many of my friends to boost their fruit and veggie intake, they still like to party and get wasted frequently - perfectly fine by me, because its their life not mine, I just can't help but get slightly irritated when I make somebody a veggie juice only to be followed by a beer, seems like they are pissing the…

Personal Care Products, What Do We Really Need?

I first heard of it six months prior and always dismissed it as a crazy hippy idea. But the Internet always has a way of making the most fringe ideas build a lot of momentum. When some of my idols mentioned they were doing it, I mustered the courage to seriously consider give it a try. After all it seemed like the next logical step in my self-exploration.


“I’ll just try it for a week.” I thought to myself. “I can’t smell that bad… can I? But… people can be diplomatic –…

Exercise Confession

I have a confession to make. I don't exercise like I should. Of course, the reason I am posting this is because I need to and have decided to start.

I am going to become a workout junky, and this is why I know it can happen. 

Before I was raw, I loved my junk food. Mac and Cheese was my meal of choice, if I didn't have a coca cola before 2 pm, I was exceedingly grumpy, and we ate out nearly every day. It was a bit ridiculous! 


Now everyone I know refers to me as…

Why I Don't Want To Eat Boiled Potatoes

So recently I’ve been having a hard time saying no to cooked food, especially boiled potatoes. It’s really weird, but I LOVE the taste and texture plain, condiment-free boiled potatoes. But every time after I eat them (or steamed veggies or rice) I pay the consequences. The taste is NOT worth it. And to convince myself of that and remind myself when all I can think about is the instant gratification of eating them, I am writing this blog.
