been doing lfrv on and off for over 6 years now, and progressively becoming more committed. the biggest challenge is to overcome cravings towards salty foods... i don't use salt, but sometimes i'll give into raw nori, or garlic and spices for making dressings. i also notice that raw eating is intimately connected to the emotional and spiritual side of me. the more i detox emotionally, (deal with issues), the cleaner my diet becomes. i'm also a spirit-filled christian, and the closer i connect with God/Jesus/Holy Spirit, the more peaceful i am with eating.

a quote i really like!

"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy not rich; to study hard, think quietly, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds and babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the commonplace. This is to be my symphony."

eat raw and the locals

Posted on June 1, 2011 at 9:04pm 0 Comments

being raw here in china is a funny thing... more and more so ppl. are noticing what i eat, and they often ask: "are you gonna eat that raw?"

today i bought a bunch of baby asparagus and the front gate woman asked: "how are you gonna eat that? stir-fry?"

"nope, just wash and eat, like a cucumber." i replied.

"hao li hai oh!" (translate: wow, you are something else!) she exclaimed. then added: "you eat everything raw..."

i walked away laughing, and turned back and smiled at… Continue

Hi Jennie, I just wanted you to know I answered your question about the tomato sauce on that page with the photo. I hope it helps!

miss you too.

i got married earlier this month, officially registered in beijing.  however, my husband left for work around mid and will be away for another 6 weeks at least. 

most of my spare time, i'm immersing myself in the joy of cooking (omnivore), gardening, painting and handcrafting.  no expert just enjoy the fun. 

i still got flare-ups when diving in tropical last month, much more minor though.  and i have been keeping the tanning by spending as much time outdoor (without sunscreen mostly).  finally see the silver lining of living freely under the sun.

hope you are doing fine and living happier. 

i am grateful and fulfilled with what i have for the moment.

Hi Jennie,

Consuming salt is against our guidelines, but you may find some helpful suggestions for combatting your cravings here:http://www.30bananasaday.com/group/rawrecipeshaveanyadd/forum/topics/salt?commentId=2684079%3AComment%3A3211943&xg_source=activity&groupId=2684079%3AGroup%3A607387 .

It's often an issue for newbies, but it does get better! Hope this helps. Sultana

Hello Jennie,

   Thank you so much for sending me that link, it was very inspirational. I can only begin to imagine how much I will have changed after living this lifestyle for four years, it will be truly amazing. I do hope to one day be an inspiration to others as everyone else here has been to me. To answer your question, I am actually German/Norwegian, it seems we all have lookalikes out there.  :)

Hi jennie!!

I just read that you would like to move to Hawaii eventually- man, that would be amazing!! I went last year, and everyone is so mellow and laid back! Things are expensive but there is costco there!! :)

I visit China, taiwan, and Hong Kong every two years or so. I have not been to Shanghai yet- just Beijing. I like it there!

I am currently on my first week or raw and the first few days were easy, but the past two I have been craving some vegan junk food. :( luckily i didn't eat it.

Anyhow, Ni hao from california!!

Hi, I don't know much about China, but aren't there some nice tropical places in China? What about this http://www.travelchinaguide.com/cityguides/hainan/sanya/

Hey Jennie!

About the dates: it depends which sort of dates you get. Zahidi dates are very dry, bahri dates are very moist. Khadrawi are slightly less moist than bahri but still very delicious. Take your pick!

Hi Jennie,


I do not use any hair care products once soever. I only use a regular shampoo that is somewhat made of organic ingredients and is paraben free. No conditioner. I have recently been using a different soap, one that i use for my body as well, and it seems to be less harsh on my hair. It is from Dr. Woods and it is a pure almond castile soap with Shea Butter and smells amazing. And the ingredients are great. Check out the link ->
