Alright I took on a 100% LFRV challenege for minimum of 30 days. I managed to make it 6 days without trouble, however, my cars timing belt broke on me throwing off my ability to get fresh frood easily. It has been a week since it has been off the road which is so convenient now that it is nippy outside. I know I can get to the store and taxi home with my cases of fruit but I just feel to lazy. I have been eating lots of pasta with tons of lightly steamed veggies to get me through each week…Continue

AAAAAAAH can i just tell you how horrible its been since saturday night (oct 29th) at 9 pm?! Ive had no power, or heat, since that night. I just got it back today at 4 pm. about 116 hours. This just caused a huge halt in my 811rv ways :( I live on banana date smoothies. Problem is, no electricity, no blender, and no relatives or anyone around had power either. 200,000 People in western MA alone didnt have power. i think it was 800,000 in new england all together. I tried to eat ripe…Continue
It's a bit lengthy, but I found it very stimulating. Openly discussing diet concerns with our meat-eating friends is not only healthy, it only further validates the vegan standpoint. I was debating whether or not I should post this on the Debunking the Critics of the China Study Group, maybe I will. Let me know what you think! = )

Woke up today still feeling like last night was another dream....thats the last time i'll ever eat cooked food willingly. The stomach pain, nausea, dizzyness, everything just made me feel so much worse. Of course even though i am saying all of this stuff, i am craving bread again. The really really strange thing i have noticed from last night, and just now, when i start to think about eating cooked food, i sneeze! Just starting to think about it, isnt that so strange? Its like my body…Continue

Well tonight was the last night i will ever slip up and eat cooked food :(....i feel so so sick. My stomach feel like a balloon......im dizzy...my migraine hurts even more.....so nauseous.....so ashamed. I had been crying for a few hours because i am just so upset about all the pain ive been suffering with for 5 years. All day today, as soon as i woke up, worst migraine ive had in a while. Theyve never found out what is causing them or anything to help them. I cant even think straight…Continue
Well....as you can probably already guess from the title of this blog...late last night or i guess you could say very very early this morning....i gave in to my rediculous cooked food craving. Like i said in my blog yesterday, i was just craving a sandwich, so badly. I had enough calories yesterday, and even noshing on more dates didnt help. I didnt just have like....a piece of bread to satisfy my craving for a sandwich....this was a full on crazy cooked vegan....and a few items not so…Continue
So today was a very exciting/stressful day. I have been planning on becoming certified as a heath coach for months now. But I've kept putting it off. I've even found the school I wanted to be certified with. I always knew I would do it some day... later. A few days ago, I was going to the bathroom ( I know, random) when I started thinking- " I always have great ideas but I never follow through. Maybe I'm not brave enough to actually do it. Maybe I'll think about doing it…Continue
After my last blog, I attempted to make it through one day raw with my little pre-planned menu. This was really helpful, but I still crashed at the end of the day. The trouble with me was that I kept thinking that every time I ate cooked food, it was a failure. I'm learning that you really can't do that to yourself!!!!!
This is a path, and as long as you are moving in the right direction on that path, you are fine. Of course I would love to be 100% low fat raw…Continue

Alright idk what it is, but tonight i am having the worst cravings for cooked foods. Idk if it was bring in a restaurant all day surrounded by it (even though i was drinking my smoothies) but i am seriously craving like...bread with peanut butter, or rice. I didnt have the greens i always have at night tonight, because the kale salad i ate last night left me with a horrible stomach ache all night when i was trying to sleep. All i had for my "salad" type of meal was 2 zucchinis made into…Continue
So i decided not to go to classes today. E-mailed all of my teachers last night to tell them i wouldnt be in class. This weekend i was having migraine issues come back, and last night it was just getting worse. The only thing that i can and have ever done to escape migraine pain is sleep. So, i didnt fall asleep until really late last night because i napped yesterday. I then get woke up by the fact that my noise machine stopped working, i then find out that our electricity got shut off…Continue
So i woke up kind of tired saturday, wish i could have slept in, but i promised Jen i would go to the "Shout and Holler" walk today. They changed the name of this walk, which is originally called "Slut Walk". Its a walk to promote the message that women shouldnt be called "sluts" and blamed for harassment if they wear certain clothing. It is based around the fact that on January 24, 2011 Constable Michael Sanguinetti spoke on crime prevention at York University safety forum.…Continue

It's been probably two and half months since I've updated, so here it is.
I wasn't eating enough and I…Continue
This week was my beginning. I have a very long way to go.
Let me just say right off that I have never been vegan, although I have a lot of respect for the vegans I have known. I agree with a lot of what I know of the vegan way. I disagree with the way my western society has exploited and abused animals just to eat them, and eat what they want of them (exploding chicken breasts...good grief).
I'm going through a lot of changes in my thinking right now, so maybe those of you…Continue
Alright, first on the STANK subject, durian is so so strong lol. I was craving it all day at work, and new i was going to eat some when i got home. My dad hadnt smelled it yet, and as soon as i brought some into the living room, he said how much it stunk and that i had to go eat it somewhere else. Well, that left me to standing in the kitchen under our fan about the stove....or up to my room. I went up to my room. I didnt smell the stank when i was eating it of course. I went out of my…Continue

Okay, here we go. I discovered this diet/lifestyle unintentionally, 4 weeks ago, while surfing some videos on Youtube. I found Durianrider and Freelee and loved their videos. I decided pretty much straight off that I wanted to try it out. So I did. I was surprised at how quickly I started to feel better, more energy, more chipper, lost a couple of pounds, and my nails even got noticeably stronger. I did it for 10 days in a row.
On the 11th day, I treated myself with a baked…Continue
Today i woke up and really just wanted to sleep a little longer....but i couldnt.....had to get ready for school. I tried doing the "no poo" thing with hair washing....tried baking soda and apple cider vinegar....fail.....then i tried clay....UBER fail. That clay stuck in my hair for about a week and a half, no matter how hard i tried to get it off of my scalp, it wouldnt all get out. I now use …Continue
It baffles me how people still think milk makes your bones nice and strong and its so good for u and the only way to prevent osteoporosis is dairy dairy dairy! Today a waitress was drinking a glass of whole milk (mind you, whole milk is the only milk we have at our restaurant, worst kind of course) and then a waiter came up and made a joking comment, then said "But its good you drink that milk, dont want holes in your bones!" Instantly i replied, "Thats so not true, milk causes…Continue
