day 1 trying raw till 4

Got up and ate a mango, juicy sweet and ripe! Then banana smoothie, before heading off to the market for veg and fruit supplies.

Bought more mangos, Sharron fruits, cantaloupe melon, blood orange, Jamaican oranges, salad stuff and some new season spuds and enough mejool dates to make 1 smoothie. Buying here not at the supermarket I think saved me £ 20 easy. ate fruit and juiced before getting my head down for a few hours as I'm on my first night shift tonight. The lovely girl made a super… Continue

What to say to All the Egg-Pushers!

I don't know about you, but ever since I started to switch to a more plant-based lifestyle, I have had to defend myself and my views frequently.  I have well-meaning family members and friends who express concern that perhaps my kids aren't getting enough protein or good fats, or that I need to "go eat a sandwich."  I have had people post The Vegetarian Tour (highly anti-vegan and veg) on my Facebook Timeline for all to see, after learning I was going vegetarian.  For as much research as…

Who cares?

   What a shocker; I've been gaining weight.

   I really wasn't surprised about this considering the fact I was living on about 300 calories a day maximum for two years.

   I do not know how much I weigh now, but I do know for a fact that I'm not a size double zero anymore. (A size double zero was too big for me for a long time)

   Despite this weight gain and being slightly uncomfortable getting used to my body, I really couldn't care less. Why is that? I am feeding my…

Thanksgiving! :)

I can't say my childhood and teens were a bundle of laughs; bed-sores, paralysis, and starvation, it really wasn't that great! But one of the good things that came out of it all was being able to be happy with very little, and to appreciate things that might not seem important if you have always had them in your life.

If I have enough to eat, and somewhere safe to…

Pioneer Schmioneer

We've recently ticked over at 20,000 members here at 30Bad. I will come back to that shortly.

I haven't been on here much due to work, but I just wanted to pop in to comment on the recent "Pioneer-Gate" thing swirling around the Woodstock Fruit Festival.

WFF has always been very prominently featured here. ANd... People have always complained of what they claimed was the "dogmatic, constrictive, nature of 30Bad version of 801010" here.

Contrary to some people's…

Together <3

When you do something kind and no one knows, the whole world knows because it gets a little brighter on the Earth, and the fear and the darkness get a little weaker, and when you smile at a stranger you make them your friend, and when you make someone happy you start a trend that won't ever stop, you've made the world a better place forever, and who cares if you're rich or famous or clever, if you have a good heart and the courage to…

Every moment on this Earth is a miracle <3

These are the beautiful moments in your life, happening right now. Walking down a moonlit street, listening to a song that makes you smile, sleeping late on a rainy day, seeing someone else happy.
I lived without these moments for a very long time, not because I was sick and dying, but because my life was not my own. No words are enough to say how beautiful freedom feels after that. A day is a lifetime. And…

Jumbles and Mumbles of Doubt

As I lay here on the floor of my tiny Hawaiian apartment, I can't help but reflect on the doubts that have been keeping my mind company for the past few months. I wish I could say that I let my doubts be just that -- doubts -- but quite frankly, I feel as though I'm allowing them to manifest into reality.

Roadblock number 1: Is a raw vegan lifestyle for me?

Is it? The deepest part of me--my "heart of hearts"--feels it is, but external factors have such an enormous… Continue

Beauty <3

There is beauty that we are given and beauty that we create. I see beauty in a sunset, and beauty in a smile, beauty in the flowers and in the one who grows them, beauty in love that is given freely, and beauty in the one who loves in return. Beauty is everywhere upon this Earth and reaching far beyond and back again. I see it and I am grateful. <3…

HEALED of Menacing Arthritis by Raw Food


Click on the picture above for my video version.

I was a dancer in my younger years through adult years.

By age 18, I was diagnosed with pre-arthritis in my knees.

✿  I was living on fast food, canned foods, processed foods, doughnuts, etc.  The dancing probably helped me keep the weight down, but lots of exercise did NOT keep…

Life is Finite, but the Rest is Infinite! (plus a beautiful video) :)

When life gets good, you realize just how bad it was before. And that can be hard. But if you can embrace and accept that things were tough, and see it all clearly, you will find that what you lost during that time is returned to you, plus some!


Because the contrast between then and now will make you appreciate everything so much more deeply. Happiness, health, fun, friends, life, you are seeing it all like a child does; everything is novel, and vivid, and important. And…

I'm Glad to have Landed Here <3

I have lost a lot in my life, things that I can never get back. I have been through pain that still hurts to think of. I have been pushed harder than I once thought humanly possible to withstand. And I have seen that we never really recover from such things. You cannot forget, or rewind to before. However hard you try.

Instead we must absorb it all, the shock, the shock of life, the cruelty of ot…

Spread the Love! Life is Beautiful and Infinite! :)

We as humans have come to measure life in length, by how many years we can live. But in reality life is not linear; it should be seen not for how long it is, but for its overall size and breadth; by how far we can spread our wisdom, how far the light in our soul can shine, how many people we can love, support, and share this beautiful world with, and by how much fun we can have in the time we are given, however long or short that may be. Spread the love my…
