Why doesn't a red alarm go off when I'm about to be out of fruit?

It just didn't click this time.

We have a box of 150 bananas. Unripe. Hawaiian papayas. Not fully ripe. 4 Kiwis, 2 bags of sour tangerines, and 2 little plastic boxes of strawberries.

I can see how that kinda seems like a lot. At least to my mom who got insulted when today I mentioned not having food/needing to go to the store. But if she stopped munching on cooked things throughout the day she would understand that it's not enough.

Even if you have ripe fruit…

Made it to 2150 with lots of bananas and dates!  My collection of bananas is getting nicely ripe, so it's time to go to the store and stock up on more.

I can't tell for sure, but I think my skin is looking more hydrated.  My face is definitely not as dry as usual.

Tomorrow might be a bit of a challenge, since I will be out all day and have a dance workshop in the evening.

Calorie Restricters are soooo annoying....a rant about the dullness of people who dont eat enough

It is funny how as I soon as I started to really make sure that I never restricted my calories, always reaching for low fat carbs when hunger hits, I notice everywhere else, that people around me are severely undercarbed!!

I work at a vegetarian cafe, and it seems everytime I turn around one of my coworkers is going off about starting to eat fish again, or taking fish oil, or that their naturopath said something was missing in their diet, or how they crave lots of fats and think high…

Back to the drawing board.

It is currently lent -- what a great time to buckle down and achieve what I want. Essentially, I want to eliminate cooked food except for unsweet almond milk. Which I will start making from scratch when I get the chance. There are approximately 30 or so days until Easter. I am going to use this time to re - commit and continue daily meditations.

I have some vegan products, which I am going to place in the freezer. I hate to waste. Perhaps I will never need them again!

My fruit…

Fundraising for 8 month raw adventure across the country! YouTube channel coming soon with your help!

Hey fruit lovers! :) I'm currently trying to raise some last minute funds for my 8 month 100% raw vegan journey across the country which begins on Saturday, so I decided to put up this PayPal donation link. The goal is $250 (to purchase food supplies, a juicer and more camera gear) and anything you can contribute towards this is greatly appreciated. ♥ I've started a YouTube channel which I will be updating regularly and I hope to reach and inspire young people around the world to better…

preppers lifestyle and eating raw

Yup, I will come forward and admit it...I am a prepper, not the gun toting, wearing camo prepper from tv, just a regular rainy day prepper. Loving warm sunny climates has put me in the middle of some really big hurricanes and a major earthquake (7.2) I currently live directly over a major fault line and I know there will be another big quake that will hit us eventually, so now I prep.

It was Easter Sunday in the afternoon, I was laying in bed trying to nap, while my angry family made…

one week check in, 2 inches lost from my waist!

one week into my new lifestyle and I am 2 inches smaller at the waist, I don't own a scale so not sure how much weight I have lost, but my clothes have taken on the slightly baggy look. YAY! Looking forward to buying more bananas today!

6 days into new diet.

Of course, by diet I mean a change in eating habits. Just wanted to post that I jumped right in and stuck to this now for 6 days, barely having any withdrawal, and the cravings for cooked food and snacks are there, but not too bad. It is a good test of will power and conviction, and I like to think with my experience in the law movement that both are well honed.

According to cron-o-meter, I am not achieving my daily requirements of calories, carbs, protein, or fat...and I have…

Over 3000 calories/day ok?

Still getting cravings and very much finding it easy to eat 3000cal of fruit per day.  Full up with oranges, pineapples, bananas (10 is easy) apples and dates....a bit worried that my bloodsugars are going crazy and I am craving more and more fruit!!  It all gets calmed down by avocado on raw salad...anyone know a way out of this?  Yes I am a very active person, digging the vege garden and running around after kids are my fav passtimes. Help me someone!!

I felt a fruit euphoria!

It wasn't supernatural like a drunky feeling. I think being drunk is a cloudy high versus what I felt today. Today I felt happiness from clarity! It sounds dull and sober but it was like I could see everyhting realistically and it was a happy reality!

Just two days of doing really well, toughening up and not cheating and I feel so great. Honestly in all my time of "transitioning" to raw I haven't felt that way. It was like the answer I needed.

It made me see what a happy life I…

23 day challenge

Hi everyone, 

I haven't been active here for a long time. In my first post I told about being overweight about 8 years ago and started to lose weight after then, which finally resulted in being anorexic and hospitalization due to a serious shortage of kalium. After that, I started eating again and gained weight rapidly. I've got a healthy weight since then, but my eating habits are ridiculous. So last year I found out about 30bananas and tried it for a week. I felt great,…

Day 3-ish

I'm not going to make this blog be all about the times I've "slipped" and eaten cooked food, partly because I vowed a long time ago not to have that kind of relationship with food.  That doesn't mean I'm not going to try to stay within the guidelines of 80-10-10 (once I have a complete picture of what they are-- I'm still waiting for the book.)  If it makes me healthier and a faster, better runner, I'm all for it!

But, I did have cooked food today.  It was a social eating event at…

An Update, and Thank-You's, with a Woo-hoo Attached!

I really want to thank everyone who offered me advice as well as everyone who ordered from me/donated to me... I went on my first unstressful grocery trip in 2 months this evening.  I am so, super happy now. I got lots of strawberries and citrus and cucumbers!  My daughter was so, so happy to have "alot of fruit".  Even my mom is asking me to make her smoothies!

I still have enough money to last me at least 2 more weeks if I shopped the way I did tonight and much longer if I…
