So there's no doubt that I am facing some immune issues! My immune system seems to be running on fumes and needs a good boost. a week and a half before the gallbladder attack, I had a week and a half long UTI. Strange, because at that time I was one week into a juice feast. never had I had a UTI barge in while I was doing any sort of cleanse. now the GB is getting some rest and my pains are much much less now, I have no fever and the past two days my energy levels were pretty decent!!…Continue

So in February 2014 I found Freelee's Youtube channel. I was instantly captivated by the information she was sharing with us, and I started researching into this lifestyle. I became vegetarian two days later. A month later, I decided to be 'mostly vegan' - I ate vegan meals whenever possible, but did have vegetarian meals when there were no vegan options e.g. at restaurants.
For a while I debated being fully vegan, but I didn't want to be that one annoying person at the restaurant…Continue

Guess who had an amazing day yesterday?
YES IT WAS ME! Of course I hope you too had a great day ;).
Anyway, sticking to 801010 was really easy. I stayed in bed until 2 pm, watching Dexter. I had a banana-strawberry smoothie, a box of dates and 2 apples. After all this relaxing I went to visit my family. My little brother+nephew were there too and we had a great time (though they also thought I was a bit annoying sometimes, because I was SO HYPER from all the carbs). I felt like…Continue

Today marks the half way mark my 40 day challenge to eat 100% raw. Honestly at this stage I am feeling as if I should and could up counting because I really believe there will be no end to it. Why - because to date I have gone from 94kgs to 86kgs which is a loss of 8kgs in total, but to be fair I did loose 2kgs before I started the raw food diet just by giving up tea and coffee the week before.
So in actual fact in twenty days I have lost 6kgs. And I mean I have really lost…Continue
Where to start, I guess at the beginning.
I like many of you was taught that meat, fish and dairy were things that are good for you, it was only when I started to see videos of animal cruelty ie medical experiments and the testing of cosmetics along with videos of starving children in Africa did I come to understand the suffering that was going on in the world. That was about 18 years ago when I was 13, I stopped using products tested on animals wherever possible because for everyone…

Had the weirdest day today – my second-hand gas stove that I bought 18 years ago for $90, blow up. I find it amazing that for more than 18 years it has faithfully boiled water, cooked food, baked everything from roasts to bread and buns, as well as, been used as a heater to some extent, to heat the little cottage I live in.
And it breaks down and quits its job after 18 years just when I am one week into a total raw food diet experiment? If that isn’t an omen from the universe to…Continue
Hi! My name is Emily and I am a high schooler beginning her journey into the world of veganism, and more specifically, the rawtill4 lifestyle. :)
A bit about my past: Growing up, I was always a perfectionist due to the fact that I was usually above average in every activity I pursued. After my first few months in high school, I was no…Continue

Oh lord, how I've missed it!
I wasn't sure how I was gonna get used to doing the raw til 4 thing.
Then I realized.. I don't have to! I was making excuses.. being afraid of judgement. Or some BS reason (excuse). IDEK. But, NO MORE. I want to feel amazing, and being exclusively raw has been the absolute best I've EVER felt! Mentally, emotionally, and physically.
So.. what the fruit am I waiting for!? :D I'm so super pumped.~
I can't wait to feel like my real self…Continue
It's tree months ago since I decided to put an end to supporting animal death and environment damage to this planet. Already one year ago I asked myself if it would make sense to stop it and go vegan... I was never like a very good friend of meat, but still I was told to eat chicken and fish to lose weight, because it's the carbs that make you fat. I couldn't live without milk because it tasted so nice and i loved cereal. And cheese: here in Switzerland this is a big thing. Fondue, Raclette…Continue

Been doing really good. My old man still hasn't seemed to notice. Wonder how, I only eat a plate of fruit at a family meal....maybe he's just avoiding the subject. Eh, who cares, I'm feeling better. Slow and steady wins the race. It is difficult when I'm cooking and preparing meals for the rest of the family. Old habits die hard. I just resist the taste test moment and just hope that I didn't forget anything. Also with a little one (7) who likes to cook and create her own meals, it…Continue
It's like having a mini garden in your kitchen all year long!
A seed (or grain or legume) has many nutritional advantages to you, but many of them are locked up tight by anti-nutrients (such as phytic acid). Germinating the seed or…Continue
I have been an official vegan now for 6 days. Small steps, my friends.
My main goal is to live a mostly raw diet, but here's the problem: my husband doesn't eat anything that grew out of the ground. He drives me crazy, and I am constantly surrounded by temptations. Despite that, I am sticking to it.
I have noticed though, that at night I tend to crave things that aren't so good for me, like brea d and sugar. I know it's my body's way of telling me I'm not…Continue
Hey guys! I got my second co-op box this week and it was full of delicious, organic goodies!
I received 1 hd. of red bok choy, 1 hd. of green leaf lettuce, 2 cucumbers, 1 bunch of green onions (3), 1 bunch scarlet queen turnips, 1 hd. of butter crunch lettuce (Yum!), 1 lb. of asparagus, and last but certainly not least, 1 over-flowing quart of delicious, mouth-watering strawberries! 3/4 lb. of rainbow swiss chard was also on the list of contents to expect (emailed to me the night…
