Is coffee really a no no? I mean seriously, I think I can do all fruit all the time, that is easy for me...but right now I am just starting out, so my first two days have been a ton of fruit, and then one meal of grains, eggs, and some, I know we aren't supposed to mention animal products..but yes..cheese. I am hoping to phase out regular food altogether, but so far, it has been difficult for me to have three meals of just fruit. I seem to be able to do breakfast and lunch, no problem…Continue
I got some really good deals this week!
On June 18 I started a 30-day challenge to stay 100% LFRV, and yesterday was 30 days.
I basically did it, except for one very minor slip-up. It happened at a pot luck I attended on the 4th of July, where I enjoyed a large portion of a spinach-mango salad with too much olive oil.
The reason for this challenge is after doing 811 for 2.5 years, I can't tolerate cooked food at all anymore. It tastes great going down, but then there is a very severe reaction about 4 hours…Continue
Many times in past I found myself getting lost in lists of tasks and over time have developed a technique how to accomplish a lot every day. It’s good to plan the day ahead, preferably a night before.
1. Brainstorming. Writing down everything that has to be done tomorrow. Sometimes even silly things like ‘cleaning the fridge’ or ‘buying paper for printer’ should go on the list, because although those things a not very important they do take time.
In some ways it might seem kinda silly to celebrate being 100% raw vegan for a week, but I am so proud of myself. I've been 100% for periods of time, up to about 2 months, but it has been quite a while, and this time just seems more stable than ever. I have a seriously easy way of getting awesome produce and I only have to go shopping about on the weekends!
I'm not doing this perfectly or anything, in fact, I'm under eating a little bit, and going a little too long without…Continue
Today I'd like to tell you a story. "Mirror, mirror on the wall who's the fairest of them all?" Remember that ugly wicked witch in Sleeping Beauty? I do! The witch was contemptible looking, don't you…Continue

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?
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
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
