Woke up groggy and sleepy. Spent most of the day resting and napping, did not feel like doing much. I managed to cram in a 90 minutes walk, got some young coconuts imported from Costa Rica and some amazing tasting bananas, that are small but juicy.
Ate smoothies all day, grazing, whenever I felt awake enough to eat. Nectarines, coconut water, bananas, romaine and a lovely treat of cherimoya, custard apple. That was the only food I did not blend today. It was a super nice…Continue

Have you heard? It's the "hot new thing" in the raw food world, and a lot of the gourmet raw folks are going crazy over it. Here's the low down on why it's "not so hot:"
-Coconut Secret Raw Organic Coconut Aminos is "aged and blended with sun dried, mineral-rich sea salt, hand gathered from pristine waters near the southern islands of…Continue
I have been doing pull ups regularly for a few month now, not following a strict exercising plan, just having fun. And today with a good friend of mine, we went training and he kinda pushed to try to do a muscle up which I believed I could not do, but I was wrong and I could get 3 of them done!!! Power of motivation and fruits!
That made me feel so happy!
I've been hearing a lot about buckwheat groats lately. I've done some research and learned that they are raw, vegan, not related to wheat, not a grain and are gluten-free. Buckwheat groats come from the seed of a flowering plant, are low in fat and treated as a CARB!
So I thought why not give them a try. My recipe wheel started rolling and I came up with these raw vegan buckwheat porridge. They keep me full and I really enjoy them. They work well for me but not for…Continue

Life’s a risky business. It is so uncertain, unpredictable, and let’s face it, just plain weird! What are we all doing here?? And added to it’s general incomprehensible vastness are so many other variable factors in our lives: family, friends, work, money, health, it’s a lot to keep tabs on! And sometimes this can make us feel a little overwhelmed. Everything external is so changeable and out of control, which makes it important that we remain the constant in our own lives; the one person…Continue
Many things can change our perspective on the world: difficult experiences, a poignant book or story, meeting someone, losing someone, just deciding to become a more contented soul and working at it every day. The change may be gradual or instantaneous, but either way you will find that your view of life becomes clearer and you see everything in a new way.
I'm tired of being afraid to go fully raw. I know it sounds weird to feel that way, but I always think about, will I have enough fruit? will I have enough money to buy fruit? I KNOW I have enough money, I just keep making excuses because I'm afraid to spend too much because I'm trying to save up. There's also the fact that this is the only summer that I'll be able to work for the next 3 years. With that and school, I'm worried about the challenges ahead. But, I'm ready to bite the bullet…Continue
Today I think I actually experienced a moment of satiety - I was satisfied for the first time in a long time since my supervised water fast. It only lasted about a half hour after I had my "dinner". It's a good sign though that this ferocious appetite might be calming down and trusting me a bit. :) I have been honouring it religiously, so it's bound to happen...I hope! Cool.
I stayed completely raw today without too much effort unlike yesterday where I was constantly ravenous…Continue
Most people go through life with a plan. It may be kind of vague, but it’s there, a picture in your head of the years to come, the things you’ll achieve, the relationships you’ll have, celebrations, holidays, memories you’ll create. But when you or someone you care about gets sick, plans tend to go out the window. Suddenly you realize that all the dreams you’ve had for your future are just that, dreams. They’ll probably never come true. At least not in the way you’d…Continue

Today went so well. I ate up a lot of the fruit I had on hand in preparation for my upcoming island adventure, and, although my appetite never let up, I managed to stay 100% raw. I went to the grocery store and scored a wicked deal on a ton of organic bananas that were "overripe" aka perfect, and then a bit later my Mom found a case of mangoes on sale and brought them by for me! So happy about that. Having a large stockpile of mangoes and bananas always makes me feel safer. :) I cut up all…Continue

Must be why they are all so glowy :)
Having been part of this community for a few years now, I've come to recognize a systemic problem throughout the vegan and raw foods world, something quite a few others have recognized as well. On the surface, it would seem that the greatest issue people have when starting out their raw vegan journey is the actual practice of it. But upon deeper analysis, and after much experience, one will inevitably come to recognize that the chief problem facing newcomers is the inevitable process of…Continue
