Hi!! My name is Maria, I was a pescetarian for 2 yrs, but recently became vegetarian the end of Dec 2011, I am engaged to my beautiful partner Ruby, who I absolutely love and adore! I became vegetarian bc it was my next step easing my way into becoming a raw vegan.

Living in a Filipino household, and living in the "dirtyyy south" in the states, I was definitely a serious meat eater before turning pescetarian. Before stepping into the pescetarianism, I knew in the back of my mind that this was just the beginning of eating clean, I wanted to eventually turn vegan and transition into a raw vegan eating machine!

I gotta be honest, my decision of giving up meat wasn't always bc of ethical reasons, I just simply wanted to be fit and be in good health. And let me tell ya, it's been quiet an adventure so far!

Dear Diary,.. Hahaha, jk :D

After complaining about not having enough fruity selections in the Hagonoy palengke, 2 of my Titas (aunts) and my cousin Rj finally took me to the Malolos palengke. Malolos is where I was born. The commute wasn't too bad in the morning since we left around 430ish.. but damn, on the way home traffic was a biiiiitch!

Wow, was I happy they took me there. So much more selections! Today was history in the making for me, LOL.. I've never bought so much…


Culture Shock.

I recently move to the Philippines a couple of weeks ago and am striving to go raw. I haven't been quiet successful for I am still trying find my way around the province. After living in the states for nearly all my life I am slowly adjusting, but before long, I know I will have to re-adjust to the greater cold, Canadian weather! I will be here in the Philippines for about 6 months before I make my move to B.C. So I would love to know what are the "good eats" here. What I've managed to find in… Continue

Hi Maria, thanks for the friend request. I knew you were Philipeno when I saw your friend request!  I'm Philipeno and Dutch.  I've been eating high raw for years, recently went Vegan, (so happy about that!), and I have been attempting to go 100% raw for the last 6 months. I succeed in chunks of time, and then go back to adding cooked food, in high stress times.

I am currently needing to heal on Ovarian Cyst that is very large, so suddenly I can no longer procrastinate going raw. i know it will heal me, but have not yet been able to do it consistently. I love 811 and have naturally over time gravitated to it. It feels so right. I wish I had known of this diet when my daughter was small. She would have loved living on fruit!

Really Vancouver is pricy for rent, but the fruit is less than most cities in Canada, India and the United States. You will be fine. BLESSINGS
