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…

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… Continue

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… Continue

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

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…

I have quite a difficult situation, which has been reoccuring in the RV community, but unfortunately ignored or improperly addressed. Before I state the problem, I will try to depict my situation for a sense of background, so please bear with me.
I am 22, 56 kg, have been raw for about 4 months now (have not lost weight as I've been underweight regardless of diets), was vegan ("raw till 4") for about a year prior to that. My diet consists of 3… Continue

back in 2002 or so (when I was like 15/16) I got diagnosed for mild hypothyreosis and back then I was eager to take meds. in retrospect my thyroid was just f***ed because of my unhealthy eating/sleeping habits.
in 2010 I went 811rv and after maybe 8 months (could have been a year as well, can't remember) I was told to decrease my dose. the highest dose I ever… Continue

How does a raw vegan deal with taking their food to work?
✿ If you’re gone from 8am in the morning (or earlier) until 6 pm or later… What do you do?
✿ I have over an hour commute each way to work, taking buses and trains.
So I tried 4 different things. Let’s see what… Continue

So, today was an interesting day. I definitely did not eat enough carbs and was really hungry all throughout the day. I started my day with a papaya and apple banana smoothie, but didn't finish it then because i was still famished, I ate half of a watermelon, which I didn't know it, but it was a bad idea. Towards the evening time. I noticed my tummy was starting to hurt, so I ate some more apple bananas. I soon realized that I was having a partial blockage in my stoma. For those of you who… Continue

Becoming a vegan really is exciting. You are starting a new phase of your life and are going through lots of growth. It’s a great feeling knowing that you are getting healthier, living a more compassionate lifestyle, and reducing your footprint on the environment.
Though this is a positive change in your life, you are for sure going to face a lot of backlash from the people around you. Not everyone is happy that you are going vegan, especially if it makes them feel bad about… Continue

There is something really and truly wrong with the world now and I can't believe that it only just hit me.
I googled "cow pig chicken" and then clicked on images, because I wanted to recreate a shirt I saw on a vegan blog that I couldn't find on any online shops, and I was affronted by a selection of contorted smiles pasted on to pastel animal bodies that looked like something I would see in Microsoft Word's clip art folder as a child. No image of a living being was present on this… Continue

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… Continue

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

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… Continue

This summer I have been lucky enough to get the chance to spend time with some truly amazing (fruity!) people. I've had a great time hanging out with them, sharing food, and also talking with them about their experiences with following this lifestyle, as well as about my own.
Now I see it as a pretty good sign that I'm sometimes liable to forget that… Continue
