Sweet potato leaves raw? are they edible?

Started May 21, 2011 0 Replies

I just discovered yesterday that in Asia many people eat sweet potato leaves blanched or stirfried. A friend gave me some and I tried a bit raw. It tasted really nice and i'm wondering if any one…Continue

Second week on 811 transition.

Posted on March 19, 2011 at 7:51am 1 Comment

This is my second week in transition on 811. Wow!! I am amazed at how I'm feeling. I started to get interested in raw nutrition 8 months ago. I never intended to become vegan. It started out as just looking at more healthy ways of eating. So I started adding lots of raw food into my diet. Thats when things started to change in me. After about 2 weeks i became repulsed by meat. I found the smell and taste disgusting. As I had been vegetarian before for most of my life I had no problem cutting… Continue

I did not do the painting in the photo. So glad to hear that you are feeling and doing great. I am just recommitting to 811rv. I have been over doing it on the fat for a while and have not been feeling so good. Have no excuses really.


Been a bit difficult because my family does not want to live this way so I am simply having to make the full commitment for myself.


Look forward to following you and your community.

i think it is so great that being vegan helped to to become more positive and loving. just goes to show, what we eat really matters. i think it's probably because without all those chemical hormones in animal products, we are more free to become our original and natural self. we were created to be positive, hopeful, and loving.


thanks for the encouragement to start painting again. i will, definitely... when the time is right. i'm a web designer and i definitely can see that being vegan and raw have changed the way i design... but to be even more truthful, the positive changes came after a closeness with God, and especially encountering his love and presence. it was after this special spiritual union, that my body gave me signs to become raw. i didn't get here by reading any books, just simply by tuning within.


yes i really believe that the heart is the seat of all wisdom. but there's so much clutter, noise, and distraction everywhere we go... especially on the internet... that it makes it really hard to be mind-free and listen to the heart. meditation really helps... but even in meditation, i get distracted a million times. so i'm just trying to be patient, and take it one day at a time...


oh and i have one more Q - at what point in your painting journey that you've discovered your own personal style? has your style changed throughout the years? what do you find the most difficult about painting, and also being an artist?

hi helen,


thanks for dropping me a note. :)


"But now I like to paint beauty and hope , to paint my love for life and our Earth."

that's beautiful! do you find that with raw eating, your creative expressions have changed or improved? are you a full-time painter? is it easy to make a living this way?


i painted from childhood till HS, and gave up temporarily when i went to college. i'd love to pick it up again and i'm sure i will. when i saw your paintings, i couldn't help but feeling the urge within to paint as well. :)


oh yeah doing raw in china is not so easy, but i'm always motivated by challenges. i'm always curious to see how raw eating, especially being a fruitarian will affect or change a person's artistic growth and expression.


anyway, nice to meet you~ :)

Your words of thanks are very kind, and glad I could be of help.  Feel free to PM me anytime.  In Peace, PK

Are you planning to sell your paintings?  When you get done with the Dr. Graham videos, plug in DRs name in Youtube for a lot more interesting information.  Durianrider not only gives diet advice, but real life advice on what and how to to talk to real people.  Good luck with the diet and 811 lfrv way of life.  In Peace, PK
