What have you been lovin lately? Here are some of my current faves in life!
I've had my ups and downs this first month. I've definitely had slip-ups, intended and unintended cheats, and days where I pretty much felt like throwing in the towel because I was so frustrated with my lack of self-discipline.
But I'm still chugging along and figuring out what works well for me.
Today was a really good day. I have figured out that the more greens I incorporate, the fewer cravings I have. Celery juice, especially, helps with salt cravings and doesn't…
I just bought Sciatigon by Native Remedies (www.nativeremedies.com) to get rid of my *horrible* sciatica pain. I had already took a Parmacetamol but I didn't want to be taking anymore. So after my Mom told me about this product and after heavily researching the product and reviews, I took the plunge and bought it. Usually natural meds take a little bit to start working, but OMG, this started working immediately. With each dose my pain was…Continue

But first, get a load of these summer tomatoes. Flavor beyond your wildest imagination! Just add tender lettuce and nothing else! DELICICIOUS!! Eat them now because when they are gone, they are gone.
THE KILLER STINKIES…Continue
My wife was telling me a very interesting story about one of her uncles.
They were living in very small towns in Quebec, Canada where all the information we have today was not flooding in these pre-internet times. Around 30 years ago, he came to visit his sister. In his bag, he had a blender and was concocting everybody at the family reunion, some raw smoothies, and he was always taking the occasion to share all the benefits of his vegan lifestyle.
Yes he was…Continue

I ate my last banana last night and got this anxiety energy that would not go away all night I have been up. I think it is because there may be fat in my blood.
Back in January I wrote an article for a friend of mine's blog, in which I talked about how great the 80-10-10 diet is, and included links to Dr. Graham's website.
Last month someone read the article, checked out Dr. Graham's site, and now is planning on attending Health and Fitness week!
Several other people I know have been influenced to change or at least improve their diets…Continue

So I bought a treadmill at less than half price at the store because I bought the floor display, and I am loving running every morning. As mentioned in a previous post, I didn't exercise regularly. Well now I jog on the treadmill 30 minutes every day. I have not been sore once (thank you fruit!) and I am getting toned and in shape SO MUCH FASTER! I always thought that the exercise didn't matter that much, but I have the energy now to workout and I am working out like crazy and I am getting…Continue

Social situations can be tricky. I am documenting these things I try to see what works for me, because I am still pretty new to this lifestyle. So far, everything is going well socially and I don't feel like the social aspect is too much of an issue yet.
People kind of treated me weird anyway for being a vegetarian, but they got over my animal free diet pretty quickly, and they are getting over the high fruit diet too.
So here is what I am doing:
First, I never…
Maybe it's just me, but sometimes I really miss banana bread! I used to make a killer vegan banana bread back in my days of eating sugar and bread and junk. Buuut a couple of months ago when I tried my first Banana Bread Larabar, I was totally hooked; they taste juuust like banana bread but without all the refined sugar and oils. So recently I decided to make my own, and they turned out just as good if not better! So here's the recipe:
Protein Type vs Carb Type and what does an all fruit diet do to blood pressure issues. Dr Mercola stated to get you blood pressure in check before eating lots of fruit. What? I have a lot of anxiety issues in my mind. I confuse fight or flight with fruit sugar overload and am thinking high blood pressure from fruit. But its just fear. Its all in my mind. It sounds crazy but any logic helps.

See By Way of Introduction for my previous (first) blog. Thought I'd "check in" on how its going, and keep this record for myself.
Most junk eaters and even vegetarians when they see you eating more than 1 or 2 bananas, they are traumatized as their programming is so deeply wrong regarding food (eat animals, a lot of animal fats, drink yourself to death, take meds that modify your brain connection paths, it's okay!).
Immediately they are like: "Wow, 5 bananas, that is a lot, I eat one and I feel stuff !" - Well take note that I had 5 more just before you saw me and my digestive…Continue
Recently I asked a friend of mine, a lady with considerable knowledge of all facets of pregnancy both personally and via others' experiences, for her take on this vital process of life and on how a mother might best meet with success for herself and her little one.
So impressed was I by her wisdom, that I asked her to write her thoughts down. Given the positive reception the few times I've shared it, it's time for a larger audience to have the opportunity to benefit.…Continue
I love getting my workout in early, it really gets my day off to a wonderful start, and puts me in a better mood all day long. It's also nice to have the evenings free to relax with my family and friends, play tennis, head to the pool, grab dinner, etc. Check out my favorite tips for getting up early!…
