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…Continue
Hey guys! Fun fact finding post today! Please leave comments about you!
My new blog post outlines the numerous health dangers associated with consuming these expensive products, including:
So I was about to munch into my breakfast and the first bite didn't taste right...this is what I found...
Anyone know what this is???
Should I complain to the company I purchased it…
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!
See my new post for more information:…Continue

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…Continue
Hey I have been lfrv for about 3 mo. and i know that you will get like a detox process but i keep getting really bad headaches and i have never been a fan of taking anything for them but its to the piont that i cannot focus and really bothering me.
I have a huge sweet tooth for ice cream ihavent touched any since i started the process b/c of dairy and i recently found a coconut ice cream that has no dairy, should i get it or no.
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
“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 –…Continue

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…Continue

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.
I don’t want to eat boiled potatoes…Continue
I love making low fat raw vegan "pasta"! It's one of my favorite healthy meals. A lot of newcomers to the low fat raw vegan lifestyle tell me they struggle because although they love all of the fruit, they still crave savory food. I have a few savory and wonderfully satisfying recipes I am going to share with you. I also have an idea for a healthy, delicious dessert pasta! I really suggest you try these recipes as a way to add more healthy, delicious fruits and vegetables into your…Continue
