I have been living a HCLF vegan lifestyle since September 2013 (nearly 8 months) and started off with primarily high water fruits and vegetables. I did not know as much then as I do now (eating enough kcals, upping the carbs) and began to get extreme cravings. I then realized I wasn't eating enough and started incorporating more dates/bananas into my diet. I also started Raw till 4 a few months ago and that worked better for me.
I recently started incorporating potatoes. I noticed…

Never in 78 years have I been able to manage more than about 6 bananas a day without revulsion.
This summer, here in South Africa, I have been on a roll once again. By accident and experiment, I have now reached a point where bananas have changed from being my least favourite fruit, to being my favourite and most esteemed fruit.
Long ago I did a 33-day grape island, but experienced no gains.
A few weeks ago I did a 6-day banana island, with fantastic results. Life…

These super sweet raw hcrv cupcakes will make your mouth water for sure.
After sifting through the internet for a good raw vegan cupcake recipe, to no surprise, I was pretty let down once again.
It pains me every time I look for raw recipes, as the amount of unhealthy ingredients, or combinations of ingredients, simply baffles me. Almost all of them mix oil & other fats with dates, which does make me worry for people’s blood sugar…

A High Raw Vegan Mamma in the making here :) I am 25 weeks and feeling great! I started off 100% raw but after an episode of stomach flu I got aversion to salads so in order to get protein and iron I started eating lentils and beans regularly. I also eat frozen spinach and veggies as I have no problems with those... No salt added, just some nutritional yeast - yummy :) There are still days when I try to keep 100% raw, but not all the time, due to the aversion I…Continue

The actual prep time for these delicious spring rolls depends upon your choice of veggies, but when time is of the essence, ten minutes is enough. Cabbage, lettuce, avocado and sprouts are your speediest options. Carrots, peppers, cukes and herbs take a bit longer, but not much. The rest is a snap; just dip the spring roll wrapper in water for a few seconds as it softens like magic and you’re ready to fill and roll.

Oh my goodness, it took me almost 32 years to realize that my body is a sacred vessel which mustn't be stuffed with different junk. I am calmly glad that I am now on the right way. My legs are easily carrying me themselves when I go, I try hard to catch their motion. I am filled with energy and positiveness. Eating raw vegan food is a misterious secret and a simple miracle at the same time, affordable to anyone. If you realize it once, you won't be able to delude yourself by degradating to a…Continue

Just to point out some facts to be able to remember how it all started)):
- I didn't expect to change to raw eating so easy. The first week was the hardest, psycologically. But then - only pleasure and enjoyment:) It is my second 'try' and the first time I was on raw only for 2 weeks, that was 3 years ago. Then I wasn't in the right frame of mind to continue. Even after many years of being vegetarian. So I am more than happy that now I am on the right way absolutely…Continue
