My home state of Iowa, (U.S.) has an annual cycling event that i love. About 10K-20K riders show up each year, and it is the oldest and largest ride of it's kind. The route changes every year, but it…Continue
I logged back in and i guess it's been four years since i posted here. I included starches and cooked veggies for a while, but i'm trying fully raw again for a while. Not for life, because i don't think some cooked veggies and starches are bad for you, but for a while to try it out again.

I bought some fresh made watermelon juice after the ride from a guy who…Continue
