I was raised Roman Catholic and my mom and I always said Grace before meals. Most of my friends also said Grace and we said Grace at my school. Everyone said the standard form, which I don't even remember, but my family had a unique one. I don't remember where it came from.
I don't believe in God any more, but I'm still a spiritual person. I think of this Grace rather often and I think it's beautiful.
thank you, for this beautiful day, for home and…Continue
Raise your hand if you work in a restaurant and you prepare and serve cooked food while trying to be raw vegan?
I work in two places were I prepare and serve cooked food. They are close to home and the money is good. I do have some days that I just can't control my apatite. I do bring fruits and juice from Whole Foods and even then as soon as I run out of fruits I fall of the wagon.
It's a constant struggle. I at least have the…Continue
Today was a weird day, can't decide yet if I like it or not.
Yesterday, I went to bed at about 8.45 PM, certainly much earlier than I normally do. I really wanted to try out if getting more than 8 hours of sleep was everything it's hyped up to be. I slept fairly well too, only woke up once to go to the bathroom. But I was dreaming pretty weird dreams and woke up feeling sleepy and confused.
This confused feeling lasted much of the morning, not going away until…Continue

OMGOSH....can i just tell u how excited i am right now. I always used to love tomato things, like tomato soup, ketchup, tomato sauce, but never ever raw tomatoes. I decided i would try to make a tomato sauce tonight for my salad/pasta instead of red pepper, just to see if i liked it. I know it would save me money to buy tomatoes over red peppers. So i peeled and pasta-fied a zucchini, threw in a bunch of kale, then it was on to tomato testing time. I cut open the tomato, looks good. I…Continue
So today was a warn beautiful day outside. I made my yummy nanner date smoothie, and brought my 811 book outside on my lawn to sit and read while catching the warm sunny rays. Sadly, i got called in to work tonight, saturday nights are my "on call" night where if im needed, i have to come in. This was my first saturday night working there, and its known as the craziest. I wasnt nervous, until i got seated 4 tables at once. I was doing fine, a little stressed out, but then someone broke…Continue
So today was the first day i have had work since i made my recent change to 811lfrv. I prepared last night by freezing the bananas i was going to far this morning in the Ball canning jars i bought to store my smoothies in for the day. 20 bananas and 1 romaine lettuce head filled up just about 4 quart sized jars. it was a little hard to blend them this morning cuz they were a little too frozen, i really need a better blender though! So i jarred up my organic fruity goodness and headed off…Continue
